Sweet Lips with Ambrosia

Scrub away those dead lip cells! Such a simple and sweet beauty product can revolutionize your life and it did for mine! 
Ambrosia Cosmetics is a beauty supply store right here in Trinidad that is also in the business of making products that would suit the Caribbean clientele. I started off with their lust dust eye-shadow pigments a long time ago and now I'm venturing into their skin and body care lines. Let's see how sweet we can get with these sweet lips. 


This product I got at the Ambrosia Cosmetics pop shop at the Caribbean Beauty and Nail Show 2015 hosted at the Center of Excellence. So I got some information about the product straight from the gorgeous lady and beauty creator herself. 

My Review:
  • As stated on the packaging it is a sugared lip scrub and on application you can feel the sugar granules on the lips which is what by gentle motion of the product causes the exfoliation. The rest of the base feels like a soft cream. 
  • Use a little of the product and apply to the lips, rub gently all over with your fingertips to soften the lips. It is gentle enough to be used daily. It leaves the lips looking moisturized, not greasy. 
  • The product is safe to be licked off which is nice since it is rather sweet tasting. Alternatively, you can wash or wipe off. I prefer the first method :)
  • The product is packaged in a hard plastic round case with screw cap lid. On opening this lid there is another clear lid to secure the product within, maintaining the moisture. However there is no label with the ingredients list on the container. You can find the ingredient list though on their website. The main ingredient is shea butter which is moisturizing to the lips.  
  • The pink package indicates it is strawberry kiwi flavored but the product is available in a green package as well to indicate a mint chocolate chip flavor, while the white package indicates a frosting flavor. 
  • As simple as this product seems I did enjoy its effectiveness and instant smoothness and softness it brought to my lips. I have now incorporated its use as a weekly/ biweekly beauty ritual. 
  • Cost: $50TT (I acquired mine for a little less at the show)

If you want to make your own version, just add some brown sugar to a soft lip balm. Use white or any refined sugar which usually has smaller grains for a gentler scrub.

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.
