Technical Difficulties

In the past when anything slowed my roll I didn't even think to mention it cause I figured no one was checking. While it is advised as a blogger, to write often and/or have a schedule I do no such thing. I have a list of the topics I need/want to cover and I get to it when I: a) have the pictures to support the post, b) have all my thoughts together and, c) feel like it. I used to write plays, poems, short stories and love letters to boys (lol) for more than 10 years and lemme tell yuh...writing can not be forced. Especially technical - as far as beauty related stuff goes - pieces where I try to give as much objective information as possible.

So why am I telling you about my hiccup now? Recently at Curls Nite Out, Gerri told her mother that she checks for an email from Moden Makeup every morning before she goes to work. I was like: wha?! For the first time ever I felt like I was letting someone down when I didn't post something. Now Gerri, don't think I posting every day! We try that during #MarchMadness and ain't complete a full month yet :( But what I can say is that I truly appreciate each and every one of you. I can't say enough how much I wish something like the Bajan blogs I read now existed when I first got into makeup serious.

Right, to the actual point. I don't know if you know but all the pictures I take for the blog, Facebook, The Marketplace and Instagram are done from my phones. I have a Samsung S4 and an iPhone 5 but the Samsung is the workhorse. It deals with all the Pages I'm the Content Manager for and it takes the best pictures to me in all conditions. This iPhone is my first one and I don't like the fact that you can't put a memory card in them nor do I like the quality of the pictures in low light. Trying to take a proper picture in certain stores with that phone is stress. So imagine my frustration when the camera on my Samsung stopped working last week. Trying to open the function causes the entire phone to shut down. My tech saviours at TwitchedOn Electronics tried to sort me out in a day but after changing the camera they believe it's a software issue. Trying to fix that revealed some other issue...long story short it's a work in process and right now I'm without my staunch 'camera'.

I guess it's time to buy an actual camera. When I do you'll be the first to know. In the meantime though they're plenty posts on the blog you can catch up on - if you've missed any. I personally have written over 235 of them :D I only say that cause it was shocking to me when I realised it. Proof that baby steps is still progress. Please do not give up on your passion or heart's desire. Find out what you need to do to make it happen and JUST DO IT.

Hol' on pun dis pic of de terrorist to tie you over.


p.s. I'm not done blogging in the interim. I just need optimal conditions to take pictures with the iPhone.

M.A.C Shiny Pretty Things Haul

In the most tardy local M.A.C Holiday release ever, Shiny Pretty Things was made available when the new store finally opened in The Colonnade Mall on December 3rd.


From YouTube chatter, it seemed like the eyeshadow singles and the Extra Dimension Skinfinish 'Snowflushed' were the hot ticket items. 'Snowflushed' is supposedly a big pan of 'Stylishly Merry'. To me, those thing were definitely mesmerizing to look at but the lip glasses were the unexpected stunners.


At this point, M.A.C items in limited edition packaging are collector's pieces. Right? Right. I was more looking at what would make great gifts.

T - B: 'Scarcely Seen', 'Rosebuddy' and 'Caketop'
Of course I had to get a bullet lipstick...

Matte Metallic 'Straight Fire'
The matte bright fuchsia 'Both Cheeks' looked gorgeous too but we all know I barely wear pink lipstick.


Just like the Nutcracker Sweet Collection they also released sets of minis. They claim these…

Indie Lee Brightening Cleanser

Usually I do these cleanser reviews when I've used the product for a while. Typically a little before half the product is gone. Well...
