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 :)

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…

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.
