I have not written on this blog for quite a while now and I do miss it! But so many things are going on at the minute, that I could not catch up on everything. Even though I do not update this blog as much as I like, I still am active on my other social media channels. I still upload on my Youtube Channel twice a week and still post on my Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. I apologise for ignoring this outlet – my blog – but I never forgot about it.
In April my domain will probably go back to – kezziescorner.wordpress.com as I am stopping my subscription with wordpress as yes I still love my blog but I would prefer using it in such a way without the subscription. In all reality the subscription just gave me a domain name as well as more space to upload photos. I think with wordpress, that’s the only issue I have that I do not have enough space to upload as many photos as I wish. And when it comes to my blog posts I always love taking an amount of photos to display through the post.
Anyways. . . I do not wish to keep rambling, but yes I will try and write more regularly but I do not know if this will be a weekly set of blog posts as I did before. But if you follow me on my other social media, when I do upload a blog post I share it there as well as you can see the other things I get around doing! Nonetheless, I would love to thank those who have been so supportive on this blog and so patient with me!
Ok enough real talk now let’s focus on today’s topic at hand! PUR COSMETICS! I was sent out these three products from PUR COSMETICS UK, (thank you so much to PUSH PR!) and I have been using these for quite some time now and love using them for my simple and natural everyday makeup look and just had to share them with you all!
What I like about them is their concept of including a 4 in 1 concept, meaning it does lots of things in one product. The products themselves include skincare ingredients that should be helpful towards your skin!
This primer is great for those who want a matte makeup look, it’s hydrating , oil free and silicone free. It’s moisturising and provides for a long lasting effect, and is lightweight and acts as a moisturiser barrier between the skin and makeup for long-lasting results on all skin tones. It comes in a cream texture that blends so nicely into the skin. I also love its packaging!! So pretty and holographic!
This comes in 3 shades – Light, Medium and Dark. What I love most about this is it’s a moisturiser, primer, foundation and has SPF-20…that’s amazing no? It’s a hydrating tinted moisturiser that includes sodium, hyaluronate and PUR’s exclusive Ceretin Complex which is a one-of-a-kind ingredient that helps to renew the skin without irritation. You can use it alone for a one-step, natural looking complexion or as a hydrating base for mineral makeup application. I love applying it for work, it just conceals and helps my skin stay protected as well!
This product comes in a variety of shades and caters for different skin tones. This product gives you a flawless mineral coverage and has great skincare ingredients. It’s lightweight, applies so easily and acts as a foundation, concealer, powder and has SPF 15 too! It also has been clinically proven to correct, prevent and interrupt skin concerns. Topped on the primer and tinted moisturiser mentioned above, they all just go hand in hand and love applying them together! I love its packaging also, it’s so luxurious!
Have you heard of PUR cosmetics before? Are you intrigued by any of these products? Let me know in the comments down below!!
Thank you so much for reading and for your amazing support, I wish you all an amazing weekend!!
Today’s blogmas post is all about some new Rimmel Products! I received these as I had participated in a campaign with Rimmel. It was all about beauty cyberbullying and I was so happy to be a part of such a campaign in raising more awareness on beauty cyberbullying.
For anyone who’s reading this, please if you’re experiencing this or know someone who is, encourage them or try to yourself speak up and stand up for yourself. Don’t let anyone take control of how you look at yourself and how you feel about yourself! You are special, you are beautiful and you are amazing !! Take care of yourself and don’t push yourself aside because of someone else’s words!
So yeah, Rimmel London Malta kindly then shared with me these products and would love to share my thoughts on these products with you all! But before I do so, I would love to say a BIG thank you to Rimmel London Malta for this amazing opportunity!!
The products came in this cute makeup bag!! And here are the products we received.
Rimmel Maxi Blush – I received this beauty of a natural pink blush in the shade exposed. I love how it blends out on my skin and is just a cute everyday pink shade!
Rimmel Wonder Wing Eyeliner – I love this eyeliner, my old one was getting a bit old so I needed an updated one! I love that it creates a pitch black line and has a pointed tip.
Rimmel Wonder Swipe 2 in 1 Liner to Shadow – I love this product as it is both a liner and an eyeshadow. It is in the shade Instafamous and is this beautiful gold for the perfect holiday look. I love using it as a liner on top of black eyeliner and I could blend it out to use as an eyeshadow.
Rimmel Scandal Eyes Wonder Wing Mascara – I have tried this mascara before as I bought it back in Scotland and I love it. It has a unique 2-sided brush which helps create a perfect winged look or flared out look. It helps lift up your lashes and is smudge proof. I do notice that it is a little clumpy so you have to be careful of that but apart from that i love it and have been reaching for it!
Rimmel Stay Satin Liquid Lipstick – So I love that they came up with this new line of liquid lipsticks with a satin formula. I love their matte lipsticks but I love this formula even more!! This shade is in For Sure and I think I am going to use it for my New Year’s Look!!! If you didn’t know that Rimmel brought out this formula, then Get To Know!!!
Tomorrow’s video will be featuring these products so stay tuned to see these products live in action!! Until then, I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you tried any of these products, let me know what you thought of them!!! Don’t forget to visit my Facebook Page and Instagram to participate in my Givaways that I have going on!!
How are we all doing? It’s another Friday, yet again!! Days are flying by!!
Today’s blog post is about a PR package I had received from Pixi. They always surprise me and send the cutest of packages. I am so grateful to receive from them and never thought that I would receive such things!! Thank you Pixi!! You made my day when I had received this!!
This package included a selfie light – which I need!! So thank you so much for that Pixi!! And it also included the two PixiGlow Cake palettes.
These light-diffusing palettes help achieve a natural, radiant and healthy complexion with flushed apple cheeks, subtle contouring and a glowing highlight. The shades in this palette are made to look like a gradient effect, which make it easier to create a sheer wash of luminous colour that enhances what Pixi call a PixiGlow!
I love the idea of having a 3-in-1 palette consisting a blush, a highlight and a contour shade. Its formula is silky soft and provides with a nice natural complexion. It also includes some interesting ingredients – • Ceramides – which help restore the skin’s moisture barrier. • Peptides – which plump and firm your skin. • Grape Seed Extract – which improves skin’s elasticity.
How to apply –
Use each colour of this pressed power combo individually or blend them together to achieve the perfect seamless PixiGlow. I have not tried using them altogether but I am intrigued to!!
The GIldedBare Glow is more subtle if you ask me and presents us with more natural looking shades. I love the highlight of this palette as well as the blush. As I said, I haven’t tried all three shades together at once, but I am intrigued to do this with this one. I would call this one the everyday PixiGlow if you ask me.
Whilst the other one in PinkChampagne Glow would be the night time version! The PinkChampagne Glow has a richer deep pink toned blush and contour shade. I think I prefer using these shades individually.
Have you tried out these palettes? What do you think of them? If not, are you intrigued by them to do try them out eventually? Let me know in the comments down below!! Thank you so much for reading and for supporting my blog!
I would like to thank Pixi once again for the beautiful products and package, I am forever grateful and you always surprise me!! I genuinely appreciate it from the bottom of my heart!
How are you all doing? Are you excited to see more of Blogmas? I thank everyone who has checked out Blogmas Day 1 already, and for those of you who are just joining me on Day 2 … WELCOME!!
Today’s blogmas is all about an eyeshadow palette I recently received in the I Heart Chocolate Vault from Makeup Revolution. I had done a video on this box, you can check it out RIGHT HERE. And basically, in this box you will find this palette. However, I now know that you can buy this palette separately too!
I have done a video showing you exactly how the palette tested out and what not, but since I am doing a blog post a day, I will include the videos I upload on my Youtube Channel as part and parcel of my Blogmas … you know what I am saying?
My thoughts on the Cranberries and Chocolate Palette –
I love the packaging of the Chocolate palettes, and I love the shade this one comes in! I think it’s a very christmas-sy colour, so this palette is perfect for a blog post, don’t you agree? I also like how the shadows come with names and you get a great sized mirror!
The palette has a mixture of shimmers and mattes. It also has this gorgeous black shade called Rich which is perfect for that smokey eye. It also has this beautiful dark pink/berry shade called Wine which is a great shade for the crease and a berry look! Which is like the look I did in my video!
The matte shadows worked out well and are so pigmented and blend nicely even with each other. Yet the shimmer shades I had to work with them more. Number one I cannot use them without wetting my brush. Example Tasteful worked well all over the lid applying it with a flat brush which was wet. Yet gratification which is the white shimmer shade didn’t go on as pigmented as i would have hoped in my inner corner even though my brush was wet.
So I wish the shimmer shades worked out better but apart from that, I love this palette. It’s a perfect autumn/winter palette with a variety of brown, pink, shimmer shades and even a dark brown and black! And if you’re looking for an inexpensive palette to create a berry toned look or a brown toned too you can use this for those looks!!
Here is my video if you would like to see how it tested out –
Thank you so much for reading!! Have you tried this palette out or are you interested in doing so? Let me know in the comments down below!!
How are you all doing? This is my last post to be written as a 24 year old. This is crazy cos I still don’t feel 24, let alone feel as though I am turning 25 …. I dunno!
Today’s blog post is all about some new products coming out/have come out by now this Autumn 2018 from Essence Cosmetics. If you are Maltese like me you can find essence products in stands in pharmacies and in supermarkets such as Pavi, Pama, Savemart and the list goes on. You can find the list right here on their facebook page!
I would like to thank Essence Cosmetics and Pharma Mt for these products!
I tested out these products on my latest youtube video, which you watch right here –
The products which were new are these –
Prime and Studio Mattifying + Pore minimising primer with black clay
I love this primer! I never tried a primer before which had black clay in it, but I enjoyed the formula of this primer as it created a great base to my foundation! It did minimise the appearance of my pores which I was all for!!
I love this foundation’s coverage! It has amazing full coverage and it hides away redness and blemishes! You can clearly see in my video how it hid one of my spots! The only thing I don’t like about this foundation is its packaging, like why does it come like that? A pump would have been more ideal and even the size of it is odd as you don’t get much product.
Camouflage+ matt concealer
I love essence concealers and again this one was a thumbs up from me! I loved its coverage, it has very full coverage as it can also cover tattoos! I love the applicator and it blends nicely!
These 3 products that I just mentioned work well together and they are a perfect trio!!
Too Glam to Give A Damn eyeshadow Palette
Ok so the palette is cute. Some shades I like, like the big highlight shade, it is so pigmented and I loved it mostly for an inner corner highlight. The matte shades worked well however, I had a slight issue with the dark purple shade. It kind of blended into nothing.
Melted chrome eyeshadow in Steel the look
I loved this melted chrome eyeshadow!! It is so pigmented and applied on the lid omg you can see how pigmented it is from me applying it in my video!! It just applies well and adds a lovely pop to your makeup look!
Need a miracle volumising and strengthening mascara
Ok so if you have been following me for a while you would know, I Love mascaras from essence and this did not fail my high expectations! I loved it, the wand worked well and it separated my lashes and volumised them! This is probably gonna be a fave of mine to use this autumn!
Go for the glow highlighter palette
This is a cute packaged palette and it comes in a mirror with three shades. Personally, I wouldn’t use all three shades, I would just use the lighter one. As for the other two I guess you could use them as blush and bronzer but since they are shimmer products I fear that they would increase the appearance of texture in the skin and that’s why I prefer using matte bronzers and blushers. But the light shade works as a nice subtle highlight and you can intensify the glow by applying fixing spray and then applying the highlight while your face is still drying!!
Melted chrome liquid lipstick in copper dropper
This lipstick is a cute copper metallic shade. It applied so nicely on the lips and it is so pigmented and not patchy! I love my matte lipsticks, but might add this on top of a matte lipstick in the middle as I don’t often use metallic lipsticks on their own!
Colour boost mad about matte liquid in Mad matters
I LOVE this formula and this shade! I want all the colours from this collection!! The applicator and packaging is amazing and it is not patchy or drying and dries down so fast!! I love it and this shade screams autumn to me!!
Velvet Matte Lipstick – Shade 06
I love this shade and formula too, it is a velvet matte! I love this shade too!!
Glitter on Glitter off Peel off nail polish in dazzle dazzle
I love this peel off glitter nail polish, I wish they did peel off nail polishes for all the colours because the removal is so easy! I appreciate they did it with glitter, cos usually when using a glitter nail polish it is just so annoying to take off that you end up with glitter for more than a week since you had removed it!!
Cosmic lights nail polish in Welcome to the universe
I loved this shade, a pretty silver. It kind of chipped quicker than the peel off but I loved it still!
And those were the new products from Essence that I wanted to talk to you about! Have you tried any of these? Do you want to try any? Let me know in the comments down below!!
Thank you so much for reading and for supporting my blog, I really appreciate it!!
How are we all doing? I am back with another blog post this time featuring Catrice. A few weeks ago I was invited to an event where Catrice previewed their Autumn/Winter 2018 collection and am so excited to share it with you all!!
I have made a video where I show you how some products test out so you can check it out right now –
Also, I have a GIVEAWAY open up on my Youtube Channel, it will be open until the 16th September! So be sure to participate!! All the details with regards to the Giveaway are found on the video linked above!!
Onto the products that are found in this new collection this upcoming winter from Catrice!!
As you know Catrice releases different trends including a number of makeup products, this autumn/winter we will be seeing the following trends – (The ones marked with a * are the products I have not tried so I just give a brief explanation of what the products are supposed to be from the information I was given!)
Glow Dewy Glitter – Effect2
This trend seems to include lots of metallic and sparkling products!
The Glitterizer mix n’match eyeshadow palette
I love the packaging of this palette and it brings forward 8 glitter shades that apply so well on the lid, however, I preferred wetting my brush and then applying these shades!
Charming Fairy Lip Glow
This again comes in stunning packaging and has a lovely lilac tint shade which is holographic and translates to a pink shade.
* Liquid Metal Longlasting Cream Eyeshadow *
This is said to be a glitter liquid cream eyeshadow which comes in two shades. Its applicator also offers an easy application of such a glitter product.
Glowdoscope Highlighter palette
I love this cream palette of different highlights. These turn to a powder with a shimmering finish when applied and blend so nicely on the skin without increasing the appearance of textured skin.
Arctic Glow Highlighting Powder
I loved applying this on top of one of the shades of the highlighter palette as can be seen in the video I attached above! It is an iridescent highlighting powder with white, silver and soft violet colour pigments!
#Peeloff Glam easy to remove Effect nail polish
I have now tried one of these shades of peel off nail polishes and they apply so well and allow for an easy removal! As normally glitter polishes are a pain to remove! These come in 4 gorgeous shades as can be seen in the photo!
These products have been created for a, “perfect instalook on – the – go”.
Prime and fine powerless blur primer
I have been using this everyday as my primer and I love its effect. It reminds me of a lighter version of the Benefit Porefessional as its texture is quite similar but quite lighter, whilst the Porefessional has a much heavier texture. Has a lovely smoothing effect and allows for a pore-free complexion. Personally, it just decreases the appearance of pores, but not totally makes them disappear!
The Blazing Bronze Collection Eyeshadow Palette
This palette includes seven shimmering shades from bronze to burgundy. I like palettes which also includes matte shades, however, these shimmering shades I applied some in my crease and they blended out great with a blending fluffy brush as was seen in my video. Therefore, it didn’t bother me that all the shades were shimmer ones!
Lash Couture #Instavolume Lashes
I have tried applying them but I don’t think they are beginner friendly cos they have such a thin lash band so I wasn’t quite too happy with these.
* #Instato Go Blur Stick *
This product is said to visibly erase small flaws such as fine lines and wrinkles on the skin!
Be a Pro
This trend only includes two products and states that, “learning from the pros is easier than ever thanks to social media.” Basically these products will help in creating contemporary looks!
*Brow comb Designer Pro*
This product is said to help create short, thin lines and fills in the brows so naturally. This will come in three shades, medium brown, warm brown and ash brown.
Light Illusion Loose Powder
I loved using this to set my under eye concealer. Even though it is a yellow loose powder it added a nice brightness and I wasn’t left with yellow skin!
ATHBEAUTY – XXX Proven
I think this is my favourite trend out of them all! Basically it states, “performance products for strong women who like to live life to the full!” I love that !!
Prime and Fine Multi-Talent Fixing Spray
I loved this fixing spray, I used it to prime my skin and my makeup lasts all day and you can also use it to refresh your skin and look! Sprays out nicely and has a lovely scent to it!
I did not try this but it’s found in my giveaway! Be sure to participate loves! This comes in five different shades from lilacs to pinks and purples! They are sweat proof and perfect for ladies who are on the go as can be easily applied!
Eye foundation Waterproof Eyeshadow primer
I never prime my lids except with concealer but using this helped the eyeshadow shades pop more, blend in easier and last longer!
I love the blush I tried which was the berry shade blended in so nicely! There are six different shades from pinks to a burgundy shade! Cute!
Brow Colorist Semi-Permanent Brow Mascara
This brow mascara will help make your brows darker every time you use it!! Comes in three different shades – light, medium and dark.
Basically this trend should mimic the world now moving onto the major use of social networking and social media. And these products complement this lifestyle and attitude.
*Light Correcting Serum Primer*
Kathleen Lights tried this and loved it! So it must be a good product haha! Basically this primer is said to help build a sun-kissed complexion!
The Little Black One Volume Mascara
This comes in two shades – Like Jackie and Like Holly Golightly. I think one is darker than the other. I tried the Jackie one and I love the brush of it as it grips the lashes so tightly which helps volumise and lengthen them easily!
Dewy-ful lips conditioning lip butter
These are such cute lip butters which provides care and shine to your lips! This comes in 4 shades and their names are so cute! You I DEW!, Let’s DEW This!, Dr.DEW little and DEW you care?
*Iconails gel lacquer*
This is a nail polish formula with a gel shine finish and maximum durability.
Blurred Lines (Limited Edition end of September-end of October 2018)
This trend edition came from the countless filters and apps we use to turn our selfies into works of art! Therefore, these products are said to do what these apps potentially do and that is blur your skin! Hence the title, blurred lines! At least that is how I understood it!
This sponge is said to ensure a perfect look for your skin and you use the rounded side of the sponge to apply mousse and primer on the face. The soft tip is ideal for a more targeted application like around the eyes, nose and lips.
*Tinted Blur Mousse*
This mousse is said to cover redness and any skin irregularities. It also adds a fresh, matte complexion.
*Dr.Blur Smoothing Face Primer*
I really want to try this, it has a light texture and prevents makeup from setting in any enlarged pores or fine lines!
Extreme Blur Loose Powder
This is the only product I have tried from the collection and I loved setting my makeup with it. It does similar things to the primer and helps provide the skin with a “photoshop effect”.
Bam Brow (Limited Edition – end of September till mid of November 2018)
This trend reminds me of how Benefit promoted their eyebrow products! This trend includes 2 products and one of them I find to be very interesting!
*Brow pro pen*
This has a 2 in 1 solution to build dimension – it has a double-ended brow pen with a waxy texture and an oval mini brush to ensure the most natural results. I am intrigued to try this out!
Brow boost serum
So this I have been trying but I cannot really tell you if it is working as I have only tried it for a week and actually you should apply it once everyday but I kinda forget on some days. But it should create a fuller brow effect in just four weeks! This is the interesting product I was talking to you about!! Follow me on my Instagram/Facebook were I will share with you my experience after using this product for 4 weeks!
And those were all the products from Catrice that will be found in their Autumn/Winter 2018 collection!! Are you intrigued by any? Have you tried any? Let me know in the comments down below!
I also would like to thank Catrice Malta for the invite at the event and for the products!!
Sorry that this post was a long one but I had a lot to say!! Thank you so much for reading and for supporting me and my blog!
How are we all doing? I hope you are having an amazing weekend!!
Today’s blog post is all about Golden Rose and some of their new products as well as one of their latest collections – the Diamond Breeze Collection!
I would like to thank Beauty Cosmos Malta for the products! If you are from Malta, you can purchase Golden Rose Cosmetics from Beauty Cosmos found in Fgura! You could also visit their website by CLICKING HERE to see their products as well as order online (This feature is available worldwide!).
Here is a video showing you how the products that I will be mentioning in this post test out –
This HD foundation is just amazing! it offers High Coverage as it is a high definition soft focus foundation. It also helps provide a flawless finish and has SPF 15! It retails for €14.25 and comes in a variety of shades!
I tested it out for a whole day and found that by the end of the day my face was slightly oily so I needed to mattify it with a setting powder to set everything in place! But overall am happy with this foundation and as you saw in my video I loved how it immediately covered my red spots so well!
Like the foundation this concealer also has SPF 15 which I find to be so interesting! I don’t think I had ever had a concealer with SPF or if I did, I never noticed! This concealer retails for €7.50 and helps create a soft focus effect under the eye because of its unique formula which diffuses light to brighten the skin, soften and blur the look of fine lines and imperfections and gives a smooth finish to the skin!
Once I applied the concealer, it blended and covered my under eyes well but it did crease a little! I wish that it didn’t come packaged with a sponge where you have to click for the concealer to come out like a pen but other than that I quite like this product!
The shades I tried were 24k Gold and Iconic Copper which is a lovely dusty red! These retail for €6.50 each and come in other shades! I love how they are so pigmented and dry up fast reducing the chances of it transferring above your lids! And if you saw my video they blended nicely into each other. Their great pigments to create a lovely metallic look! The Iconic Copper shade really gives me Autumn vibes so cannot wait to add it to an autumn look of mine with other shadows!
The pencil that I tried was in the shade Bronze Sparkle which was a lovely deep gold shade and these retail for €5.50 each! I applied this on my waterline and it applied well even brightening up my eyes!
I never tried glitter mascara until now! It retails for €7 and I first applied normal black mascara and then I topped up my lashes with this gorgeous glitter mascara! You can see in my video how the glitters do actually transfer on my lashes! I was worried because of the glitters getting into my eyes throughout the day but that was not the case and it was easily removed at night!
I tried the highlight in the shade called Champagne and this retails for €7.50. I loved this highlight and thought it blended into my skin easily and smoothly! It did not intensify my pores on my cheeks and was happy with how it looked! It made my skin glow-y just like I liked it!
I love these lip toppers which are like lip glosses. I tried the shades Golden Nude and Nude Sparkle, both had speckles of glitter! They retail for €6.50 each! I loved Nude Sparkle on its own rather than applying on top of another lipstick. I love their scent as well, it reminds me of the same scents they have on their golden rose matte liquid lipsticks! I love the description they give on the website for this, to make your lips shine like a diamond, love that!
This set of lipsticks all come with glitter speckles and I tried the shades Plum Sparkle, Russet Sparkle and 24K Gold. I think 24K Gold would look lovely on top of a dark purple matte lipstick applying the gold lipstick on the centre (sidenote for future makeup look during the winter months!!) I love the plum sparkle shade and they have a hyper shimmering finish! These retail for €6.50 each !!
This shimmering body glow adds gold glitters to your skin! It is very creamy and has a light texture and can be easily applied and dries quickly! I noticed how it blends so nicely into the skin, giving you a glow-y look! This retails for €11!
I also received a nail polish and have tried it out, it is a gorgeous orange shade perfect for the autumn months!
Those were the products from Golden Rose that I had to share with you all! Which product did you like the most? Have you tried any of these products? Comment down below and thank you so much for reading!!
Thank you once again to Beauty Cosmos Malta for providing me with these lovely products!!
