The Holiday Gloss-Over

Before I became a lipstick lover, I was a huge lipgloss fan. If you are a bit intimidated by lipstick, opt for a lipgloss instead and work your way up to lipstick. In fact there are so many highly pigmented glosses now that they give the opacity of lipsticks with high shine of the glosses. Here are some of my favourite lipglosses perfect for the holiday season!

The Reds: MAC Russian Red Lipglass <3

Get the luscious classic colour with this lipglass or the permanent MAC Russian Red Lipstick. Tap on the colour of the lipstick and run a clear lipglass over the top to replicate this gorgeous red, if you can't get your hands on this lipglass. It's a cherry red that leans a bit orange red on my skintone. It's a bit tacky as MAC lipglasses are but the high shine makes this red one of my favourite red glosses.

NYX Perfect Red Lipgloss

They don't call it Perfect Red for nothing. If you can't get your hands on the MAC Russian red lipglass or looking for a cheaper alternative then this NYX Mega Shine Lipgloss is the answer. Its a bit more of a blue red than Russian Red but also is highly pigmented with high shine.

CaraMia Caliente

I love supporting locally made products! This is the most inexpensive out of the three red lipglosses. CaraMia Cosmetics Caliente Lipgloss is a gorgeous red similar to NYX Perfect Red. It does have a ting of pink in its colour. Here I paired it with CaraMia Royal Red lipliner. The only setback is that it stains your lip a magenta pink color. Otherwise it is glossy, pigmented and not super sticky. <3

The Pinks: Flori Roberts Magenta Lipshine

I discovered this brand recently at the Caribbean Nail and Beauty Show and I am smitten with this lipshine. It's a shimmery lipgloss but without feeling the grit of the particles on your lips. The colour is close to its name and it doesn't feel super sticky for a gloss. The only drawback for me is that it settles into my lip lines. Otherwise this is one of my favourite pink glosses lately.

CaraMia Shimmer Lipgloss

This colour is more muted a pink but with the shimmer goodness I love for the holidays. Again like the previous pink you don't feel the particles on your lips. A bonus for me with this gloss is that it smells like caramel!

The Golds: Makeup Academy (MUA) Shade#1

Golds are popular for the holidays. Try the sheer gold sparkle of the MUA Shade 1 lipgloss for a natural but festive look. My lips are a bit pigmented on its own so the gloss gives a glow to its natural colour. If your want a more natural look or you're not a big fan of wearing red glosses, then this is the one for you. It also smells super yummy.

CaraMia Gold Lipgloss

Amp up the gold volume with a true gold lipgloss like CaraMia gold. It's a bit sheer on the lips but gives enough gold colour for your holiday party. Wear matching gold eyes if you dare.

And that completes my gloss over of all the gorgeous red, pink and gold lipglosses that are truly favourites of mine and wonderful for this holiday season.

Happy Holidays!!

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.

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…
