Sultry Sacha & the Matte Me Lippies

Lippies galore today. I'm super excited to show you some new shades of lipsticks from Sacha Cosmetics and their Matte Me line. As far back as I can remember, I adored red lipstick and this seemed to be the color of choice for both my mom and grandmom! I've since branched out into loving more colours but always seem to go back to my reds, so it was awesome to find some gorgeous reds in this new line. Let's begin with this epic lipstick review! 



Let's talk about these darker colors above starting with the top left hand shade and moving clockwise:
  • Matte Me Ebony. This one is for the purple lovers! It's a dark rick purple with blue undertones. It's not for everyday wear (for me) but would be perfect with when you want to rock some statement lips. Wear with a simple cat eyeliner and black mascara.
  • Matte Me Red. For the red lipstick girl like me. This is a gorgeous blue tone red. It is deeper and less shiny than Matte Me Ruby.
  • Matte Me Wine. This wine shade has a golden sheen. It is a dark, vampy color so again not for everyday wear but more for that "making a statement" lip.
  • Matte Me Ruby. A classic red with orange undertones that is more shiny than matte.




These are the lighter shades that are more for an everyday wear:
  • Matte Me Mandarine (soft orange). This shade is not as bright as it appears in the tube. On my pigmented lips they are very wearable even for everyday wear. This color is buildable with a subtle sheen and creamy texture.
  • Matte Me Coral. This shade is a cross between a pink and red shade. This is definitely an everyday wearable shade.
  • Matte Me Nude. Every girl needs a good nude color and this one has pink undertones to make it work well with many skintones. See how it looks with my Neutral Glam makeup.
  • Matte Me Yours (orangey brown). This is an interesting shade. On olives skintones it does appear more wearable almost like a soft nutmeg color but it can appear brighter and more orange on fairer skintones.




And because this one is super special to me, meet Matte Me Fuschia. It's a vibrant pink with a soft frosty sheen that reminds me of hibiscus. You would have seen this used in my Summer Sunset makeup look.


In summary, these Matte Me lipsticks are nicely pigmented with a good mix of bold, classic and neutral colors so you have a wide range of choices for almost any look. They do seem to not all be true matte shades since some do have a sheen or glossier finish. 

My favorites are Matte Me Wine for that dark sultry evening look, Matte Me Ruby for the classic red Marilyn Monroe look and Matte Me Fuschia for some Caribbean flair. What are yours? :)

Coffee Date Night with Bae

There are some simple pleasures in life that I enjoy. Coffee is one of them and a good lipgloss. Today I can have both of them together while we go for a date with bae! Sacha Cosmetics has blown me away with their new intense lipshine glosses and awesome names. I love when companies try to just be real with their customers even in these small details. 

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…

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.
