Road trip to Starlite Pharmacy

Hola Bellezza! Hop in the car and let me show you my latest beauty find right here in Trinidad &Tobago. This blog is dedicated to bringing you information on what beauty products and destinations are available here for us beauty babes, so it is my pleasure to show you my experience and discoveries made at Starlite Pharmacy.


There are currently two locations: Maraval and Diego Martin. I visited the store in Maraval. It's on Saddle Road, opposite the Shoppes of Maraval. You certainly can't miss the store; it's a huge, modern building with a spacious car park. I loved the window theme pictures which made me feel like I was truly in the right place for beauty.


I was overwhelmed by how spacious the inside of the store was and the fact that you were greeted by warm staff who was very willing to assist with anything. I actually needed some help for some of the polishes and help was indeed what I got. The lovely lady assisted with getting me testers and answered any question posed to her. 

So let's get on with what wonderful array of products are available for your beauty needs here at Starlite. I had a particular interest in brands that were not normally available here! But just to mention, you can find large displays of your regular brands like Sally Hansen, Revlon, L'Oreal, Maybelline and Orly. 
The newer brands (at least to me) includes Butter London, Cailyn Cosmetics, and Pop Beauty for nail polishes. New makeup brands included Prestige, MUD, Physician's Formula, Rimmel London, Cailyn Cosmetics, and Naked Cosmetics. And for your brush needs, you can get Bdellium green and yellow handles brushes or brush sets. 
 
A Little Hauling :)
Polish Happy!


Butter London polishes are 3 Free polishes; which means they do not contain harmful ingredients of DBP (Dibutyl Phylate), Formaldehyde and Toulene. This is a luxury brand so it's a bit more expensive than your average polish.
Cailyn polishes is part of the Cailyn Cosmetics range of products, which specialises in mineral makeup. Cailyn polishes are also 3free.  


Makeup and Brushes :)

Brush hoarders beware! These Bdellium brushes are reasonable priced and I spend about an hour trying to narrow down which ones I wanted. Bdellium brushes with the yellow handles are antibacterial with nickel plated bass ferrules. The green ones (aren't they gorgeous?) are ecofriendly made with sustainable bamboo handles, anodized aluminium ferrules and vegan synthetic bristles! 


  
Naked Cosmetics is a line of mineral makeup made with mica pigments and manufactured in the USA. It is said to have no talc, oil, wax and other fillers added to these products.  
From Butter London to Rimmel London; I am just dying to try out their awesome line of mascaras

 
And that's all for now folks! Stay tuned for my upcoming, in-depth reviews and looks featuring these products. This was a road trip well worth my time :)

XoXo

I've made new friends, improved on my nail and makeup techniques, tried new trends and products, discovered I love nail art (can you tell) and the list goes on. But most importantly I want to thank you all for your support and kind words that kept me going. Honestly there were some times when I was down since I didn't feel my articles and pictures were great but you stuck in with me and for that I say thank you. But I also would like to say thank you and to celebrate this achievement by my first ever giveaway! A Rafflecopter Giveaway

To Russia with Love from a MAC Russian Red Lipglass

Bold red lips at the touch of a lipglass! I remember when I was afraid to wear red lips. I thought it was just so bold and my timid personality preferred to stick with soft pink lips. Well those thoughts have faded with age and now I can face my fears with the beautiful MAC Russian Red lipglass.
