On March 3rd, M.A.C. is releasing a brand new collection of creme blushes that are being added to their permanent collection. Finally, something that I don’t have to rush out to get!!! I love creme blushes and I can’t wait to swatch these! Great for those with dry skin or who live in a humid climate. These are very similar to the creme blushes that came out with the M.A.C. in Lillyland collection.
There are six very basic, neutral colours to start with. Nothing to bright or bold.
Just a quick note: Jane Carter Solution hair care products are now available in Trinidad at Body Beautiful On D’Avenue.

Jane Carter is one the the first natural haircare lines that I tried and it is great for all hair types, especially those with natural hair, locs and relaxed hair. I am particularly partial to the Nourish & Shine, which helps seals in moisture and smells amazing!! I also really like the Hair Nourishing Serum. I need to check out the Scalp Renew and the Scalp Nourishing Serum as we all know that part of healthy hair is a clean and healthy scalp!!! This brand is definitely worth checking out!
So I took a trip to the M.A.C. store in West Mall and saw that they just got the Spring Colour Forecast collection. Why was EVERYTHING sold out??? Boo…..
Also noticed that they got the new limited edition Viva Glam lipsticks in Cyndi & Gaga. Both colours are surprisingly sheer especially the Cyndi.
VG Gaga (l), VG Cyndi (r)
Cyndi is a sheer red with a hint of coral. I think this is very wearable for women of colour. It’s a good starter red, for those who are afraid of bold reds but want to ease into wearing red lips. You could wear this red with a smokey eye or layer it to make your lips the focal point. I really like this colour and I am going to have to get it!!!!!!
Gaga is the colour that folks were buzzing about!! This is also sheer but it is a little more opaque than Cyndi and its a true bubble gum pink. On me it looks a little ashy (for reference, I am NW45), but could be worn with a darker lipliner like Nightnoth or Current. I think a little more work would need to be done to make it work, for women with darker skin tones.
All in all, they are both good colours and besides, 100% of the proceeds goes towards the M.A.C. Aids Fund.
I have been on a serious no-buy for the last 3-4 months. I mean, I have bought NOTHING in terms of beauty!
While it has been the winter of the decade in the Big Apple, it has been hazy, HOT and dry in the twin island republic. According to my brother, “…all you can do is drift in and out of consciousness, cuz it’s so hot!” It indeed has been very hot and even drier and not a drop of rain is sight, but I for one will never complain!!
So weeks ago I ran out of lip balm weeks ago and have not bought anything because I wanted something natural, devoid of petroleum products. My lips have been parched! Trinidad has not quite jumped on the natural bandwagon, in terms of consumer goods, so I’ve had no options. Lo and behold, I walked into A Wonderful World at The Falls at West Mall and saw a box of natural lip balms! They were from The Healing Garden Organics collection in Wild Honey.
