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!

Hot Milk Sponge Cake with Fresh Fruit & Coconut

In today's yummy post we are doing an easy sponge cake (no creaming of butter and sugar involved). Instead of torting this cake we are using two loaf pans to give us our two layers, which we will pull together with vanilla buttercream. I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.
