Where does the time go for the Maybelline 14hr Lipstick?


My how time flies? It’s a saying I’ve use quite often and heard repeatedly said by others as well. I was hoping I would be able to say the same thing about these Maybelline 14hour lipsticks while wearing them to work last week but alas I couldn’t! 


It isn’t all bad of course, while it doesn’t hold up on me for 14 hour, nor even a full work day (8hours), it does stand up about 3-4 hours on me. So if I touch up after lunch, we’re good to go for the rest of the day.
The product is packaged with a white cover and the body of the tube is close to the colour of the actual shade. The colour of my choice is called Fuchsia Forever which looks more like a plum colour to me. It does have some shimmer particles within the colour but it doesn’t come across to sparkly when applied to the lips.

My lips did feel rather dry after using the product on its own so I definitely recommend hydrating your lips before use. I totally recommend the pricey but so worth it MAC lip conditioner when using this product.
If you’re a Trinidadian girl, you can get this at SuperPharm for about $TT61.95, which is bit on the expensive side for a drugstore lipstick.
And for you girls with a sensitive nose, you may get a synthetic fruity smell from the lipstick that fades quickly after application.
For me I definitely prefer the Maybelline Stain Gloss over this product but I do like the colour with my medium dark skintone. I paired Fuchsia Forever with minimal makeup, just some face powder and mascara. And did you notice my shorter hair!!!!


What are your favourite long wearing lipsticks?
Happy Time!

Easy Pineapple Upside Down Cake

Hello Bakers! I've been quite the busy bee lately baking up a storm in my baking classes. Today's post is a simple pineapple upside down cake. Enjoy!

I Found You NYX Cosmetics

He thought he could hide from me forever, but boy was he mistaken! The mighty NYX cosmetics booth that was hiding in Long Circular Mall, Trinidad got trapped by a skillful makeup addict! Me!!!! How could he have avoided me for almost 2 years? Being a northeast girl means venturing into POS and environs is only when I really have to. I hadn’t visited this Mall in about 2 years which was the timeframe given to me as to how long this booth has been in the mall. 
Now give me some great customer service will you! Yes please and yes that is what I got here! In addition, you don’t have to wait 6 months before recently launched items from NYX cosmetics are available. These people have it down when it comes to ensuring all the new and existing items are there for you! Everything I asked for was available to me to buy! And Yes I got some goodies! How could I not? I have been in a blush craze lately so why not try my first blush from NYX, Desert Rose. The new xtreme lip creams were available so I…

Let’s Go to Work with MAC Melba Blush

My work place is pretty open to makeup but I would definitely prefer to keep a simple office type look while there and maybe on casual Fridays for work and on the weekends have a separate look. What I realized when scanning though my makeup stash was that most of my blushes were way too loud for the office so what better excuse to use to hop down to my favourite MAC store. :)
Now just to mention it, don’t try attempting to get quick service on a Friday or Saturday at the MAC store. It’s usually super busy. The MAC makeup artists are always so helpful though but you may require a bit of patience. But patience I had that day which led me to my beloved Melba blush.  I just needed the colour to suit my NC 45 skintone, be a powder blush for simple application and be matte, not shimmery. We did try out Fleur Power first, which is a soft pinky coral colour but I still felt it was a tad too bright. Melba however was a soft, coral peach colour and look really great on me when she applied with h…
