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.

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.
