Blogmas Day 3 – My November Favourites

Hi everyone, 

Hope you are having a great day!!!! Here is Day 3 of Blogmas!! So happy to be doing this again this year! Cannot believe, that this will be my third year of doing Blogmas!!

Also, the first vlogmas video will come out on Sunday because I will be doing vlogmas with weekly vlogs!! 

Just a reminder that my first XMAS giveaway went up yesterday and you can participate right here (If you don’t have FB/Instagram please let me know and will see what we can do!!) – https://www.facebook.com/KezziesCorner/posts/1136505859850828

Today’s blogmas is all about my November Favourites! I’ll first mention my beauty favourites and then I will add 2 tv shows that I have loved watching during the month of November cos Kezia loves her TV!!  So here we go!! 

#1 – L’Oréal Paris True Match Liquid Foundation 

I loved using this whilst I was in Scotland and using it just reminded me of how much I love it. It’s so lightweight and has good coverage and it lasts all day! I in fact already have a backup once it’s finished. I also used to love the Infallible one and might reach for it again to see what I think about it as haven’t used it in a while!! 

#2 – MUA Wonder Vanishing Cream Primer 

I love this primer from MUA and I only rediscovered it when I had done the makeup tutorial using the Norvina Palette from Anastasia Beverly Hills. It just creates a nice fresh base for your makeup and it is perfect for people with sensitive skin! 

#3 – Max Factor Brow Contouring Powder Kit

I love how this brow contouring kit is packaged and it is great for travel! I love using the first and second shade and I fix everything up with the last shade. They are pigmented and work very well. I personally do not use the brush that it comes with but I use my own eyebrow brush from Jessup! This fills in my brows perfectly!

#4 – Too Faced Sweet Peach Eyeshadow Palette

Again, I fell in love with this again whilst in Scotland as that was the palette I decided to take with me. In this November favourites post I will be including a high end palette which is this one and a drugstore palette, just in case you are wondering! This palette has such a variety of shades yet I wish they included more matte shades but nonetheless the shimmer shades are gorgeous. And you can create several looks both for morning and evening with this palette! 

#5 Makeup Revolution – I heart revolution – Cranberries and Chocolate Palette

When I am looking for a palette to create a berry look I am kind of reaching for this one! If you haven’t read my previous blogmas post, it’s all about this palette and my thoughts on it! But basically I love this palette and maybe just wish that the shimmer shades were more pigmented! But you can read more about what I thought of it right here – https://kezziescorner.com/2018/12/02/blogmas-day-2-cranberries-chocolate-palette-review

#6 – Rimmel Day 2 Night Mascara 

I love that this mascara comes with 2 wants, one to lengthen and one to volumise! I love the lengthening one more because it honestly does lengthen my lashes and the brush is so light! I like the volumising one too, but I prefer working with the lengthening one more! But it has a cool concept to it and I always usually love Rimmel Mascaras and this one ain’t clumpy!!

#7 – Makeup Revolution – Soph X Highlighter Palette 

I love this highlighter palette because number one it’s packaged so cutely and I love the peach shade of the packaging so much! And number two it comes with a variety of shades! I love the white pearl one and the gold ones too!! I just love mixing the above shades together to create such a popping of a highlight!! 

#8 MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer in Dash

I love MUA Luxe liquid lipsticks, they were one of the first liquid lipsticks I ever owned! I love the shade Dash it’s one of my favourites from this formula and I rediscovered it in November, it’s such a pretty deep dark pink shade. Perfect for autumn if you ask me and to begin preparing for the christmas season and the red lip season! 

Those were my beauty favourites, but here are my 2 favourite TV shows that I have been loving during the month of November!! 

Charmed – 

Ok so now that this story is back, I am in love with it. Yes these three new girls can never replace, Phoebe, Piper, Prue and Paige but it sure as hell is nice to see some badass witches back on TV. So far I am loving the story and no complaints here whatsoever!! I think my favourite character is Maggie. I just like how her power to understand people and that now she has decided to take up psychology as her major so can relate to her there! But I cannot wait to see how this story later on unfolds!! 

God Friended Me

I legit watched the first 8 episodes whilst on the plane going and coming to Scotland haha! I just loved them so much and love the storyline behind it. This guy Miles has this podcast all about how he doesn’t believe in God and then God friends him on facebook. He starts sending him friend suggestions which ultimately mean that these people need help! But I just love how these suggestions fit perfectly together and I just love it and think that you guys should give it a try! I love Cara the character who Miles helps and then who joins on his mission to track who is behind this God account! 

Well that’s all my November favourites and that’s a wrap for Blogmas Day 3! What were your beauty favourites for November or what shows did you enjoy watching last month? Let me know in the comments down below!! Also, thank you so much for reading and for supporting my blog, I really appreciate it!!

Love Kezia

My thoughts on the Daniel Wellington Classic Bracelet and the Classic Petite Melrose

Hi Everyone,

How are you all doing? I hope you are all having a great week! October is flying by and November is soon here! I can’t believe how fast time flies but I guess it’s nice when you have a pretty watch to spot what time it is!

I was never a person who was into watches or had the latest style but looking at them on photos, I always thought that such a fancy watch would further spice up an outfit.

IMG_6218

So when Daniel Wellington approached me for a collaboration, I found myself to feel excited and shocked that such a brand wanted to partner up with me! I couldn’t turn it down!

Daniel Wellington have also provided me with a 15% DISCOUNT CODE for you guys to use on their website! It’s valid until the 31st October! Simply enter ‘KEZZIE’ at checkout and get 15% off your order!

I got to choose a watch and let me tell you, Daniel Wellington have such a variety of watches to choose from! In the end I chose the Classic Petite Melrose

IMG_6243

It shipped and arrived so fast and came in the most cutest box ever!! The watch itself, is beautiful in rose gold! I love wearing it, you can adjust it to the size you wish (my dad helped me with that!).

IMG_6250

I love it’s quality and how it makes an outfit pop! I love how sleek it is as well!

Screenshot 2018-10-24 at 17.56.06

I also had the opportunity to try out the Classic Bracelet which is beautiful! It comes in Rose Gold and White and Silver and White.

Screenshot 2018-10-24 at 17.52.43

I chose the rose gold one because that’s Kezia!

IMG_6259

I usually don’t like wearing bracelets because of my small wrist! But this bracelet fit perfectly around my tiny wrist!

Screenshot 2018-10-22 at 19.21.38

And together with the watch it looked so beautiful! I really loved its look! Makes me look so fashionable, at least that’s what I think!!

I loved taking their photos too because they make a picture more aesthetic in my eyes!!

Have you tried watches or accessories from Daniel Wellington before? Do you like wearing watches or such bracelets? Let me know in the comments down below!!

I would like to say a MASSIVE thank you to Daniel Wellington for this lovely opportunity, I am forever grateful!

And again I wish to say thank you to YOU all who support me and KezziesCorner because without you all this would have never been possible and KezziesCorner wouldn’t be the same!! 

Thank you so much for reading guys!! Love you all!!

Love Kezia

My Favourite Summer Lipsticks

Hi everyone, 

Apologies for not writing the blog posts I promised last week! I guess dissertation stress is taking over! But I want to continue uploading regularly, be it on my blog or my youtube channel. When I am having a bad day, I just love sitting down at my vanity and apply makeup, it is just my sort of therapy to help me relax and get back at thinking more positively.

Anyways, going away from the deep talk as Eyal does on Love Island (Who watches the reality show??), today’s blog post is about my favourite summer lipsticks! I shared a video where I showed you swatches of my choices. So you could either watch that or read this blog post … or do both!!

In summer I love wearing bolder and brighter lipstick colours. I wear less makeup yes but that doesn’t stop me from wearing a vibrant lip shade! My top 10 choices cover pink nudes to fun reds and oranges to a stunning hot pink and even a purple shade. Play around with colours, step out of your comfort zone and have fun with makeup!!

Here were my choices –

January Makeup Favourites!!

Hi everyone, 

So January is over … like how is that possible? I will be trying to do these makeup videos once a month, however I will ask you guys on my social media if you wish to see them before filming the video!! Or else I can do a blog post instead! Anyways, enough rambles and let’s get on with the blog post!

In this month I kind of started using some new things, however I also kept using some old products too that I loved throughout 2017!

#1 – 3INA – The Fixing Spray

IMG_3416

I love using this Spray to set my makeup after having applied it! It just sets so nicely and makes my skin look even better! The only thing I don’t like about is that sometimes the pump is faulty and produces more water than a nice spritz! Also, it has a lovely smell to it!

#2 – PS… Primer Water

IMG_3415

This is a product from Primark and their makeup. I have seen quite a bit of other youtubers mention this in their primark haul. So when I came back to Scotland after my christmas break I went ahead and bought it. I love spraying this on my face before applying any makeup or even on a no makeup day I still spray it. It hydrates my skin and makes it look glow-y!

#3 – Pixi Skin Treats – Rose Flash Balm Instant Skin Booster

IMG_3403

This is such a great product. I would like to thank Pixi Beauty UK for it! It is a 3 in 1 product as you can use it as a moisturiser, mask or primer! I love using it as a primer mostly, it decreases my pores and creates a nice base. When I applied it as a mask I had a lot of redness and my skin felt sticky.

#4 – Makeup Revolution – I Heart Makeup Chocolate Orange Eyeshadow Palette

This is one of the newest releases from Makeup Revolution. I love their palettes, their great quality, some are dupes of other high end brands and they also come in a cheaper price! The colour selection of this palette is great to create a number of looks and I see myself using this in a Valentine’s Day makeup look!

#5 – Colourpop – All I see is Magic Eyeshadow Palette

I thought the palette would be slightly bigger so be aware guys as the size of the palette on the website may fool you! The colour selection in this palette varies and I just love it! The quality of these shadows are amazing and super blendable!

#6 – Max Factor – Healthy Skin Harmony Miracle Foundation – Light Ivory with SPF 20

IMG_3424

One of the newest foundations from Max Factor and I just love it! I love using it to create simple everyday makeup looks but even for a night out its great! It lasts long and is really lightweight! It just makes your skin look flawless!

#7 – Collection – Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer

IMG_3439

This is such a great concealer to highlight and brighten under your eyes! And for the price it is even more amazing! There is a foundation of Collection alongside this concealer that isn’t my cup of tea but this concealer is just great and it is a favourite of mine from 2017!

#8 – PS….Insta Girl Rice Powder

IMG_3422

This is another Primark product and it is just so impressive! I love baking with this, it just sets my concealer so nicely without creasing. It is a loose powder to set makeup and it also helps in absorbing oils.

#9 – Soap and Glory – Archery Eyebrow pencil

IMG_3437

I love this brow pencil to fill in my brows! It also helps me fill them in so easily! I just love it and again this came with me from 2017!

#10 – Max Factor – Natural Brow Gel

IMG_3428

You have heard me mention this product in a number of videos/blog posts! I just love using this to set my brows! It’s my number one setting brow gel!

#11 – Essence Super Last eyeliner in deep black

IMG_3427

This eyeliner creates such a rich and thick black line! It is great for creating that cat wing look and it doesn’t transfer and dries down so fast!!!

#12 – Milani illuminating face powder in Amber Nectar

IMG_3418

I love using this to add some colour to my pale face. When I don’t want to bronze or contour my face I love using this to give me a natural pink colour to my skin.

#13 – H&M Bronzing Powder

IMG_3423

This is a great natural bronzing powder. I love using it on everyday makeup looks, I just think that it leaves me with a nice bronzed face which isn’t too much!

#14 – Rimmel Wonderfully Real Mascara with Keratin

IMG_3419

This mascara is great as it also has Keratin, so it is helping your lashes too! You should be careful of this mascara because it can be a bit too liquidy and can transfer! But it creates nice volume and length.

#15 – L’Oreal Paradise Extatic Mascara

IMG_3436

I absolutely love the effect that this mascara gives to your lashes. It enhances them, lengthens and volumises them. It can get a bit clumpy but overall it is a great product!

#16 – Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighter in Liquid Starlight

This is a buildable highlight, you can create the tiniest of highlights but use more and you’ll have the shiniest highlight beam out there! The liquid highlighters come in a number of colours so be sure to check that collection out!

#17 – NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm

I love the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. Their formula is just the best, very lightweight and not drying. And this shade in Stockholm is just super pretty especially for a natural makeup look!

#18 – Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipstick in shade 03 Wow Effect

IMG_3440

I just love this lipstick, both the formula and the colour choice is great. I love wearing this when I am going for a more natural makeup look!

#19 – Golden Rose Long-lasting Liquid Lipstick in shade 18

Best red in the entire collection and one of my favourite reds that I have in my lip collection! I just love the formula of these lip sticks and they have a tonne of shades so be sure to check them out!

#20 – Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte lipstick in Nude

This shade is gorgeous, it’s darker to the Stockholm shade mentioned before. I love the packaging of these lipsticks and they are just amazing! Not too drying or sticky, and last all day!!

#21 – Essence Matt Matt Matt longlasting lipgloss in Shade 11 Drama Club

If you are looking for a gorgeous plum shade then try this out! The formula of these lipsticks can sometimes be a hit or miss depending on the shade. This can be a bit patchy but you can work your way around it!

#22 – Essence soft contouring lip liner in shade 09 going steady

This is a great lip liner, so smooth and it glides on nicely. And the shade is great and mauvey!

#23 – Sand and Sky Purifying Pink Clay Mask

I have done a separate blog post about this so you can check it out by CLICKING HERE. But this mask is great for people who have acne or had too and still have acne scars. It also helps in reducing the appearance of pores!

To watch my January Makeup Videos, you can check it out right here –

So there were my January makeup favourites!! What were you January favourites? Comment down below!!

Thank you for reading!!

May 2017 Makeup Favourites

Hi Makeup Lovers,

How are you all doing? June has arrived, and with June here Malta has gotten a lot of sun and a lot of heat.

IMG_9634

But since May has passed I thought why not do a blog post all about my May 2017 favourites. I have been trying out some of these products for a while now, some have been at me longer than others. But anyways, here we go …

#1 Benefit – The POREfessional Face Primer 

IMG_9647

So as you know, I attended Fashion Week in Malta last week,  and this basically saved me! It is quite a heavy formula and very creamy but it does the job of hiding those yucky pores I so hate!

#2 Urban Decay – All Nighter Liquid Foundation

IMG_9646

Yes, this is quite a heavy foundation, but I really like how it sits and stays on my skin. It has a high coverage formula and just blends on nicely. I love applying this foundation with my Beauty Blender.

#3 NYX HD Photogenic Concealer 

IMG_9644

I love this concealer and have it in 2 shades. The shade I had been using mostly in May was CW 04 – Beige. I love using this shade to cover up my blemishes and any redness I would be having!

#4 Rimmel – Match Perfection Loose Powder – Translucent 

IMG_9645

I love using this powder to bake my under eye concealer. It just sets it so nicely and doesn’t get creased throughout the day. Mine has been at me for a few months now and the tub has gotten all messy! So maybe if this was in a better form of packaging I would love it even more!

#5 Anastasia Beverly Hills – Nicole Gurriero Glow Kit

IMG_9639IMG_9640

I love this highlighting palette, I had saved up for it and was so happy once it had arrived. It includes six gorgeous shades, and wouldn’t change it for anything. When I am going out for a special occasion I always whip this out! My favourite shades are Glo Getter and Day Dream.

#6 Violet Voss – Holy Grail Eyeshadow Palette 

IMG_9641IMG_9642

This is the last makeup product I bought and for now will not be buying more… I hope. But I had been saving up for it for a while and I finally got it. I was either going to buy this one or the HUDA beauty one but decided for this one. The pigmentation of these shadows is amazing and they blend so nicely. I love the colour choice in this palette, you can create so many different looks!

However, I do have one sad thing to say – I thought the packaging would be more of high end quality, instead it is quite bulky and for the price you pay I was a little bit disappointed by the box.

#7 BH Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick – Glory

IMG_9648IMG_9650

This is the perfect red shade! I love it and I love the formula of the BH Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks. They literally last all day and they won’t go anywhere! In fact when removing them I turn into a clown because they really just stay there on the lips!

#8 Urban Decay – All Nighter Setting Spray

IMG_9643

Last week I needed my makeup to not run anywhere, I needed it to remain the way when I finished doing my makeup. And this is the product to keep any makeup going somewhere! I love this, it doesn’t have a scent and it settles nicely on the skin!

Those were my May 2017 favourites!

Have you tried any of these products? 

What were your May favourites? I would love to know!

Love Kezia
