AVON ANEW Platinum Eye and Lip | FIRST IMPRESSIONS

This is the first product that I’ve ever tried from AVON. It was gifted to me from a friend on my birthday last Thursday. This eye and lip cream comes from AVON’s ANEW line of products and what it does is that it helps to stimulate the production of a key skin protein responsible for youthful cell shape (paxillin). It also helps to recontour the look of the eye and lip area.

(In a study) After 3 days, 86% felt the appearance of deep vertical lines above and below the lips were visibly filled in. In 2 weeks, 85% agreed eyes have a more reshaped look and youthful definition.

The cream comes with an applicator. The round silver end for application around the eyes and the flat end the application on and around the lips. Applying the cream is very easy, and with how little product I was able to use to do both my eyes and lips this product should last me well past two weeks – I barely made a dent. The cream has an aloe scent and it’s pretty simple to use, you don’t have to get your hands messy to use it.

I just started using this product tonight and in two weeks I’ll give you all a full review of how this product is for me.

Bye all!

An Overview of My Birthday

Hello everyone, as the title of this post suggests . . .  I’ll being giving you guys a bit of insight on my birthday this past Thursday.

On Thursday morning I woke up 17 and the day was been filled with happy birthdays, hugs and just generally lots of love. It’s really nice to have a refresher of how much people care and I’m really grateful to have the life that I do and to have been blessed to have lived as long as I have.

My favourite part of birthdays is the cake:

P1010511 P1010512 P1010513

German chocolate cake with caramelized coconut on top.

I had fun that day.

Bye everyone and I hope that you’ll enjoy your birthdays as well.

My Spring Beauty Wishlist

My Spring Beauty Wishlist
Hello everyone, how have you all been? It’s almost Spring and I know that some of you are way ahead on stocking up for your Spring essentials – unlike me. But here’s the list of things that I’d like to add to my Spring collection.
When I think of Spring makeup I think about fresh faced looks – simple and sweet with a splash of colour.
The NARS Sheer Glow Foundation in Trinidad
First up is this sheer foundation from NARS in the shade Trinidad. It helps to keep skin hydrated and gives and glowing and natural finish. This is ideal for me because I don’t usually like to wear full coverage foundation, but on days that I’d like to this foundation also offers buildable coverage.

Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen with Broad Spectrum SPF 70

You have to remember your sun block! And I like this one because not only does it protect against the sun’s rays but it also hydrates as well – I’m a sucker for moisturising! It’s sweat and water resistant and good both your face and body. It only works for 80 minutes though, so you’d have to bring it along for touch ups.

6-Piece Geometric Eyeshadow Palette

I love E.L.F and their affordable, quality products. I’m not sure if I mentioned this before but I really like nude eyeshadows and tend to use them the most. This 6 piece eyeshadow palette from E.L.F is packed with them and only costs $3! Another plus for me is that they’re shimmery as well. It’d be perfect for me for Spring.

Real Techniques Blush Brush

I’m absolutely in love with my Real Techniques brushes. They’re are such good quality and efficient and I’d think that this blush brush would be no different. This brush would be great for applying some blush to my cheekbones.

Sigma | E32 – Exact Blend

I love a good blended eyeshadow and this E32 exact blend brush from Sigma seems a good brush for the job. I heard a lot of good things about Sigma and I’ve been wanting to try some of their brushes for a while.

Spring Capsule Collection by Rita Ora for Rimmel London

I love these lip colours for Spring in Rimmel’s new  Spring Capsule Collection which they collaborated on with Rita Ora. They’re lip crayons giving a smooth application. Can’t wait!

So I know that the radio silence has been . . . a bit much, but with final exams coming up I do have quite a lot of things to do and so my posting wont be too regular for the next couple of months, but that does not meant that I will stop blogging completely. I’ll continue to try and blog as much as I can. I hope you all understand.

Bye everyone! I’ll talk to you in the next post!

My Go-To Powder Foundation

Hello everyone!

In today’s post I’ll be telling you about my current go to pressed powder foundation. The powder foundation that I find myself grabbing for the most lately is this ‘Amuse Pressed Powder’.

P1010500(VRO)

P1010492(VRO)

P1010495(VRO)

It’s very easy to apply and it allows you to build up to your preferred coverage. Being able to chose from sheer, to medium to full coverage on any given day with just one product is something that is very appealing to me and I can just put on more in the areas where I usually get oily (the dreaded T).

This does come with a sponge, but in my opinion, the sponges that powder compacts come with don’t offer much flexibility in the application process. The sponges give you instant full coverage and are not too great for blending.

The powder has a slight florally-ish smell to it, nothing that’s prominent and hardly even noticeable.

Overall it’s one of my favourite pressed powders.

Bye everyone, I’ll talk to you in the next post!

Spring Escape with Sperry Top-Sider . . . Sun Ahoy!

Spring Escape with Sperry Top-Sider . . . Sun Ahoy!
Woah . . . it March everyone and it’s just that much closer to being Spring! Oh how the time flies.
I know that a lot of you guys are excited to see the sun again, so much so that you’ve already started stocking up on your Spring wardrobes. Just hold on everyone it’s almost here!
Today’s outfit post features Sperry Top-Sider in a beach ready look.
Sperry Top-Sider is a nautical clothing brand that first launched with its shoes alone. Sperry is known for having created the first pair of non-slip boat shoes and was even considered as one of the official shoes of the US Navy during World War II. Sperry has since expanded into a full line of everything you need for a life lived in, on and around the sea.
The outfit pictured above is my ideal Spring look at sea.
The Sunglasses
These aviators are perf for protecting your eyes from the harmful rays of the sun as they can block 99-100% of UVA and UVB light – and they look
amazing too. These sunglasses are in the colour tortoise and they also come in the colour navy.
The Earrings
These earrings really do go greatly with the nautical theme. I mean a ship’s wheel – what could be more nautical than that? These are made of a polished metal and they also come in silver.
The Watch
This watch, the ‘Hayden Bracelet Watch’ comes in the colour rose gold and features the signature Sperry Wave-Siping™ details edged in a rope design on the face. And of course, it’s also waterproof.
Top an Bottoms
The top and bottoms aren’t from Sperry Top-Sider but they are really cute together. To get them you can use the links at the bottom of this post.
The Shoes
And last but not least, for the things that started it all – the shoes. Well . . . not these shoes exactly but you get where I’m going. These shoes are in the colour ‘Washed Red Whale Critter’ – say that five times fast – and they also come in the colour ‘Navy Whale Critter’.These ‘Critter Print Bahamas Eyelet 2’ shoes come equipped with arch support to enhance overall comfort, 360 lacing system with rust-proof eyelets to ensure a secure fit. And lastly, they have the signature Wave-Siping™ to create wet/dry traction with non-marking rubber out soles. I love the whale and anchor pattern on them.
What do you think of the outfit?
Bye everyone and I’ll see you guys in the next post!

FIRST IMPRESSIONS | Real Techniques: Core Collection and Starter Kit

Good day all, it sure has been awhile. To get back into the swing of things I’ll start off the week with a post. Here we go:

If you follow me on twitter then you’d know that last Thursday I finally got my Real Techniques starter set and core collection. I was so excited! I was tempted to just tear the packages open but I remembered that I had to take some pictures first, and here they are:

Image

 P1010480 (VRO)

RTCC(VRO)P1010481(VRO)

My first thought when I saw this was ‘Huh, I thought they’d be bigger’, but they are a good size. I know that most of you have probably read multiple reviews of these same brushes till you just couldn’t do it any more but . . . bare with me.

These are the first high quality brushes that I’ve been able to get my hands on. Here in Nevis the makeup brushes you’d see in stores would make a pro makeup artist scream bloody murder. I’m not lying, they’re crap! And after starting this blog I’m still at a point where I’m building my makeup empire, I wanted it to not be infested with mediocre brushes, and I didn’t have any other brushes – other than the ones seen here in a previous post and a few others. So I took to the internet to find some high quality brushes at an affordable price.

After searching through Sephora’s nice sets and Sigma’s $400 sets, I was like ‘Wait. What about Real Techniques?’ and I browsed through the site and realised that at Real Techniques I could get more brushes for less and the brushes are also world renowned quality. So, after realising this and saying goodbye to some cash – I can be really cheap sometimes, 😀 – I ordered the brushes, had them sent to my uncles house in the States and then he sent them here. Although they took ages to get to me – thank you uncle – it was definitely worth the wait.

The brushes are just so soft, unlike those scratchy brushes I had before. The two sets together cost $36 USD but in my currency – Eastern Caribbean Dollars – it cost $97.56 XCD plus shipping which added up to $113.68 XCD.

Well worth the money none the less and now I’ll never even have to look at the brushes that I see in stores here again! I’ll continue my makeup collection building, and most likely add some more brushes to it sometime in the future.

I can already see a difference in the way my makeup is applied with these brushes. Thank you Real Techniques!

Bye everyone, I’m off to go get ready for a class I have in an hour.

The Vampire Diaries Inspired Outfit

The Vampire Diaries Inspired Outfit
Hey everyone.
Okay let’s be honest. Who hasn’t pictured themselves as a character on their favourite TV show? Well, I definitely have and today’s post is about what I’d wear if I were a character on The Vampire Diaries. Let’s start off:
The Jacket
If you’ve watched The Vampire Diaries on The CW then you’d know that it’s pretty much a dark show with a lot of dark – mostly black – outfits. This leather jacket would fit in perfectly with that mix. It’s also comfy enough to keep you warm in the cool Mystic falls air, with a hoodie just incase it rains.
The Top
Just something simple to throw on under the jacket and surprisingly this is the most expensive item of clothing here when I thought it would be the jacket or the necklace.
The Heels
I really like these shoes – wish they were mine. Yes, walking around in the woods in heels can be quite difficult, but Caroline manages just fine.
The Sunglasses
In an attempt to keep with that mysterious vibe that the Salvatore brothers seem to emanate, I’d rock these semi dark shades.
The Jeans
These jeans are quite a contrast to the dark theme that I’m trying to keep, but, I just felt that something light was needed in this ensemble. Comfy, fitting jeans just ready for an impromptu chase in the woods.
The Lips
I have a weakness for a dark red lip. They’re just so bold yet subtle at the same time.
The Necklace
This outfit was in desperate need of some colour, hence this gold necklace. Just something simple and nice.
The Ring
And how could I possibly forget my daylight ring! I wouldn’t want to burn. It’s a nice, simple, vintage ring from ASOS. I like it – a lot. I should probably get myself one.
What do you think of this outfit?
Do you watch Vampire Diaries too?
What do you think your role would be if you were a part of the show?
Bye everyone and I’ll talk to you in the next post.

A Trip to the Island Next Door

Last week I went on a field trip with my Spanish class to Saint Kitts where we spent the whole day. I took some pictures, mostly throughout the latter part of the day and I wanted to share them with you guys. I’ve been meaning to post this for so long and it’s finally here.

Image

You can see the Marriott Resort (Saint Kitts) in the distance.

Image

This is Saint Kitts as we were leaving that afternoon.

Image

Again leaving Saint Kitts. You can see a cruise ship docked at Port Zante.

Image

Again leaving.

And there was a guy on the boat taking pictures on the way to Nevis and he was nice enough to send me some of the pictures he was taking. Here are some of them:

Image

There was a pelican following the boat.

Image

Image

This is us getting back to Nevis.

Image

Docking at the pier in Nevis.

This is the end of the trip and I hope that you’ve enjoyed the pictures.

Bye, and I’ll talk to you guys in the next post.
