My thoughts on Korres’ Wild Rose & Super Vitamin C Skincare Products

Hi everyone, 

I haven’t written a blog post in a while and I miss writing on here. However, I have been regularly posting on my other social media sites such as my Instagram, Facebook and Youtube. So if you miss me and do not know that I have these channels too, would love it if you could support me there too!

 

Today’s blog post is about some products I received while attending a launch hosted by Korres Malta. It was the cutest decorated launch I had ever attended, hosted at VIlla Arrigo. I met some other talented people and we all enjoyed a lovely presentation by Stephanie Briffa who is the brand manager of Korres here in Malta. Korres have recently landed in Malta and can be found at Remedies pharmacies in Ta’ Xbiex, Birkirkara, Mellieħa, Sliema (OPENING SOON) and Siggiewi. As well as from Central Pharmacy in Rabat and St.Andrew’s Pharmacy in Swieqi.

We were given a back story of the brand and how it came to be developed and then we were introduced to the new collection – the Wild Rose Collection. Wild Rose oil offers antioxidant, moisturising and softening properties. And in combination with Vitamin C, helps repair fine lines and pigmentation while improving the overall texture of the skin.

I am so grateful to have been invited to an event and then to also receive three of there products from their Wild Rose Collection! And since the event I have adopted these products into my skincare routine and have so far used them for 2 weeks. And now here I am writing a blog post on how I felt these products have helped my skin since I started using them!

I love the packaging on all three products, it is just so beautiful, luxurious and I like how they look in my bathroom.

Brightening & First Wrinkles Day Cream – Normal/Combination skin – 

IMG_6854

First off I would like to say that besides this cream product coming out for normal to combination skin, they also have one for oily skin or dry skin. I LOVE the smell of this day cream, it just smells so lovely and is nice to use early in the morning as you are about to start off your day.

IMG_6853

I apply this after having moisturised and I only use it in the morning (Apparently this is a moisturiser in itself so yeah you don’t have to moisturise before using this product). It offers 24 hour hydration, brightening and first wrinkles. It has a water cream texture that blends nicely into the skin.  This cream besides containing Wild Rose oil, also has Vitamin C, turmeric extract and hyaluronic acid which helps improve the signs of premature ageing and evens skin tone to reveal smoother, younger looking skin.

Brightening & First Wrinkles Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial – 

IMG_6851

I use this everyday at night and again after having moisturised. It’s a lightweight cream that offers hydration and helps even skin tone with its corn powder that helps to absorb oiliness which results into a nice matte finish.

IMG_6852

This is a sleeping face mask sort of that helps your skin be brighter by morning.

15% Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Bi-phase Booster – 

IMG_6857

I use this everyday in the morning and evening before moisturising and I apply 3 drops – 2 on either cheek and one on my forehead and rub it in. It is an intensive brightening and anti-fatigue skin care product that has a potent 15% Super Vitamin C brightening bi-phase booster to improve the appearance of first wrinkles, dark spots and dullness. The Vitamin C and Wild Rose oil helps in reducing signs of premature ageing and fatigue to reveal spotless skin.

Research showed that 94% of women who used this for 7 days claimed that they noticed improved skin’s overall appearance.

My thoughts ….

So I have combination skin and sensitive skin. These products did not cause any breakouts nor were there any bad reactions from having used them.  As I wrote, I have only used them for 2 weeks and have not missed a day where I didn’t use all three of them.

IMG_6866
Not Edited 

I do find my skin to have gotten softer and brighter and in the mornings after having added these products in my routine. I noticed how the Brightening & First Wrinkles Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial, resulted to waking up with less dull looking skin. I think the most noticeable thing I also have noted is how smooth my skin always feels now which is a super positive from me.

IMG_6858
Not Edited

As you can see when taking the photo i had quite a large spot and this is completely due to the fact that it’s my time of the month next week and I always notice a spot or two as that time approaches! But other than that annoying spot, I haven’t had much breakouts which I am super happy about! I hope that as I continue using it, it only will keep my skin smooth and soft. The issue with my skin that annoys me the most are my acne scars but these products are not associated with helping them and am still on the hunt with something to help decrease my scars! (If you know of anything please do leave me your replies in the comments down below!!)

So overall, do I recommend these products? If you are looking for products to help your skin be healthier, smoother, softer and brighter then yes I recommend them! For me, these were the results I noticed!

Have you guys ever tried out skincare products from Korres? Let me know in the comments down below!!

I hope you enjoyed my post, thank you so much for reading and for your support!!

Until next time, 

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 thoughts on Sudio.com Earphones!

Hi everyone!! 

How are you all doing? I hope everyone is having an amazing week!!

IMG_20181016_165538_135

Today I am bringing you a blog post all about Sudio! Sudio is a company that sells a variety of earphones! I am not that person who understands in earphones but I can say that from now on if I or anybody I know is looking for a pair of new earphones, I will definitely recommend Sudio!

Sudio are a Swedish company which provide products with good sound! There are several earphone styles with different names likes – Nivå, Regent, Klar, Tre, Vasa Blå and some others! They not only come in these different styles but also provide us with a cute colour range for everyone! You can visit – https://www.sudio.com – to view all their styles and get more information!

I am so grateful to Sudio for allowing me to collaborate with them a few times and I wanted to come here and give you my thoughts on three of their styles! Sudio have also provided me with a discount code for you guys! Simply enter ‘KezziesCorner” and get 15% off your order from www.sudio.com!

20181010_121923

Their postage is fast and their packaging is so well done! I always love how they arrive! Also, at the moment they have an offer that with every purchase they are giving away 4 coasters which are aesthetically pleasing! They also have FREE WORLDWIDE shipping!

All earphones are so easy to use and connect in the same way. You will always find three buttons, 2 for playback or sound adjustment and the one in the middle you press and hold until the button starts flashing blue which means it’s on and red it is ready to connect! They also turn off when not being used!

Here are the ones I have tried out –

Sudio Vasa Blà in Rose Gold White 

Screen Shot 2018-10-16 at 17.00.08

I love the colour these come in and I never owned wireless headphones with a microphone in them! I found this so amazing and out of this world haha … yes I am a little late to the party! The microphone is really good and the sound quality for me is great! They also connect to your phone or laptop through bluetooth, and like all Sudio’s earphones are compatible with iOS and Android! They also are so good to use whilst exercising!

I find these comfortable to wear and they last long after being charged! These come in 4 other colours however, at the moment they only have the rose gold black and blue in stock apart from the rose gold white! I also love that they come with the cutest case to keep them in!

Sudio Nivå in Black

20181010_122059

These are unlike any other earphones I have tried! They have a charging pack which you put them inside to charge! You instead charge the charging pack rather than charge the earphones themselves! These come in 3 other shades however, white and pastel pink besides the black ones are the one in stock at the moment!

IMG_20181016_110732_703

These also come with a microphone! I know right, fascinating!! I find them comfortable, however, I am constantly worried they will fall out! I actually passed these on to my boyfriend who is in love with them!

Regent White 

Screen Shot 2018-10-16 at 16.59.55

These are my favourites and they are my babies! I use them to edit my videos and listen to music! I just love them! They are wireless, they are so sleek and cute in photos and they also come in black! There ear padding is so comfortable and they aren’t heavy and can adjust to your wanting. They have a play time of 24 hours plus so that’s perfect means that they don’t need a lot of charging!

IMG_20181016_165535_533

They also come with interchangeable caps and one of them is the colour of the headphones and the other is in marble which I love!! There sound is amazing and microphone works so well!! I love them!!

IMG_20181016_165550_583

Have you guys ever tried earphones from sudio? Are you interested in trying a pair out? Let me know in the comments down below! If you have any questions let me know or you can visit sudio’s website and contact them!! 

Thank you so much for reading and for your amazing support!!

Carbon Coco – Sweet Mint Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish – Review

Hi lovelies,

How are you all doing? I hope you are all having an amazing week!!

Today’s blog post is about something that helps make your teeth whiter, in a more natural way!

It’s a product from Carbon Coco. You can visit their website which showcases all of their products, they even offer great combo deals. Find out more from their website –

https://eu.carboncoco.com

A few months ago I had reviewed the original carbon coco teeth whitener. You can read all about it right here – Carbon Coco – Teeth Whitening – An Honest Review !

However, this time I tried out the Sweet Mint Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish! And I just want to say from the start, that I prefer this one than the other because this has such a sweet mint flavour!! I love it!! This is available for A LIMITED TIME ONLY!!

Before I start, I would like to thank Carbon Coco for sending this out to me for me to try out!! I really appreciate it!!

IMG_6169.jpg

Let me tell you guys what it includes first! 

This Sweet Mint Tooth Polish is just like the original with active charcoal which helps in naturally whitening your teeth. It absorbs stain-causing debris and bacteria and removes stains without any toxic ingredients! It also helps in providing good oral hygiene and prevents bad breath!! The only difference than the original one, is that it has an added sweet mint flavour to increase the fresh mouth feel!

How do you use it? 

IMG_6172

Step 1 – Wet your toothbrush and damp it lightly into the carbon coco jar and tap off the excess

Step 2 – Brush your teeth for three minutes (I always like doing a timer on me phone – fun fact you should be brushing your teeth for three minutes!!)

Step 3 – After brushing for three minutes, spit out and rinse all that carbon coco away!

Step 4 – Brush your teeth and for best results, use at night followed by Activated Charcoal Toothpaste!!

IMG_6194

My thoughts …

IMG_6187

In my opinion I LOVE this. It is such an easy, quick and natural way to whiten your teeth. I noticed results immediately however, your teeth will get whiter and whiter every time you use it. I like doing it 2 – 3 times a week at night before I go to sleep! I notice that when I rinse it out I am left with some bits in between my teeth but don’t worry those will be gone maybe not as soon as you rinse it off initially but by the next time I wash my teeth the bits are gone!!

One thing I struggle with is when the product gets fall in the sink when it comes to rinsing it off it kind of gets a little messy. But apart from that I love it and have loved incorporating Carbon Coco into my routine!!

IMG_6184-side

What do you guys think? Have you tried this out or any other teeth whitening products? Let me know in the comments down below!! 

Thank you so much for reading and thank you all for your support!! 

Love Kezia

My thoughts on BodyBoom!

Hi everyone,

I hope you all had an amazing weekend! I am back with another blog post, and am excited to share this with you all! It’s about a product that is all about caring for your body!

Today’s blog post is all about coffee scrubs from BodyBoom Malta. BodyBoom coffee scrubs help with making your skin feel silky smooth and moisturised whilst also leaving a healthy looking glow. But that’s not all, they also help fight cellulite, stretch marks and skin lesions after using them for 4 weeks or so!

42175751_237852393532003_2418913808601841664_n

BodyBoom coffee scrubs are produced and packaged in Poland and its natural ingredients are sourced from all over the world! BodyBoom scrubs are also cruelty free!

To all my Maltese/Gozitan followers, you can purchase BodyBoom Coffee scrubs from – https://bodyboom.mt

BodyBoom is also found on Facebook and Instagram and if you want further information you can either forward it to their website or social media!

At the moment, the different scrubs that are available to buy are the following –

IMG_5972

Today I will be sharing my thoughts on the Active Charcoal Coffee Scrub which is the one I have tried out so far. However, be sure to follow me on my Instagram, where I will share my thoughts on two other scrubs!!

My thoughts on the Active Charcoal Coffee Scrub

42898864_2142396786031389_6383912747368710144_n

I have been loving charcoal activated products lately! I have tried this twice as you can use the scrub 2 to 3 times per week. I applied the scrub in circular motions all over my body and left it on for 3 minutes. I hesitate to use these kind of coffee scrubs because of the mess they can leave. However, once rinsed off, the loose-grains easily disappeared. I think what I found maybe a little annoying is how I had to take out the product and the scrub going underneath my nails … but that’s me being picky!

42981087_1983283208401669_8130853779772801024_n

After rinsing off the scrub and drying myself up, I loved how my skin felt! It felt so smooth and soft and silky, and it had a healthy glow to it!! This particular scrub came with a heavy coffee scent which fades away quickly. I guess if you aren’t a coffee scent lover maybe this isn’t particularly for you but if the scent of coffee doesn’t bother you or if you are a coffee lover, then you will surely love this!!

42868636_2120092074669133_5887843638133653504_n

I love how now I have these body scrubs which are showing my body some love and helping my skin be more cleansed, moisturised and soft! I notice how its effects last as well! I cannot wait to try out the two other scrubs and enjoy their effects on my body!

Have you guys ever tried any coffee scrubs? Or any Body Boom ones? Let me know in the comments down below!

Thank you so much for reading! And thank you all for your lovely support!!

I also would like to thank BodyBoom Malta for these products!

Until next time, 

Love Kezia

New Products from Essence Cosmetics – Autumn 2018!

Hi everyone, 

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 –

IMG_5672

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!!

#Instaperfect foundation

IMG_5679

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!

IMG_5681

These 3 products that I just mentioned work well together and they are a perfect trio!!

Too Glam to Give A Damn eyeshadow Palette

IMG_5676

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

IMG_5684

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

IMG_5685

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

IMG_5677

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!!

New Lippies!! 

IMG_5678

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!!

IMG_5682

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!

IMG_5623
And this was the look I created using these products! 

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!! 

Until next time,

Love Kezia

Back to School Makeup Look – *DRUGSTORE ONLY products!*

Hi everyone, 

It’s the 21st of September, which means it’s Autumn Time!! I am so excited for the leaves to change colour … oh wait we barely see that in Malta … never mind!! But apart from that I am excited to light candles in my room and for the evenings to get cooler again and watch movies inside with a hot chocolate on my right and Nemo to my left, all snuggled up nicely!!

Anyways, with autumn beginning, it also means that the scholastic year is starting again. I know that in the UK and in the US the scholastic year already has begun. But in Malta it’s about to start next week and for uni students, it will start in the beginning of October! I would love to wish everyone who’s returning back to school this year a BIG GOOD LUCK! Everyone starting uni I wish you a good luck and to enjoy it!! Yes it may be tough and it may be challenging, but trust me, the years will FLY by!!

So because it’s back to school season in Malta, I decided to dedicate this blog post to a quick and easy back to school makeup look using only drugstore products!

You can watch my tutorial right here on my YOUTUBE CHANNEL

The products I used for this tutorial were –

IMG_5572

Nyx angel veil skin perfecting primer

I always start any makeup look with primer, and I love using this one from NYX. It is a cream like formula which provides for a smooth base for your foundation!

Sleek Vitality foundation

I love this foundation for an everyday makeup look! It’s very lightweight and leaves your skin show its natural beauty! Cos yes guys we all have beauty in us!

Catrice Comouflage concealer

I love this concealer, it just provides for amazing coverage. If you have an annoying spot just apply this and blend it! And it will cover up that annoying blemish!! I love using this concealer under my eyes which makes me look more awake than I am!

Rimmel Stay matte powder

I love this powder, it’s a holy grail of mine!! Love how it leaves my skin and love how it sets any foundation in place!!

Essence make me brow duo eyebrow powder

This is a great brow product from Essence. It comes in a light shade which I first use to fill in my brows then a darker shade which I use at the end of my brows!

Max Factor Natural Brow Gel

I always mention this brow gel, I love it! It’s from Max Factor and it sets my brows into place perfectly!!

L’Oreal Paris Miss baby Roll Mega Volume mascara

I love this mascara, as you can see from the video it really volumises and lengthens my lashes! It isn’t clumpy and separates the lashes so well!

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

I love this bronzer!! I was so sad when it broke when I took it abroad but I managed to salvage a little bit of it!! It gives out the most lovely looking natural bronzer! And smells so good!

3INA the blush shade 103

Love this pink shade, it looks so natural and blends in so nicely on my skin!

The Charcoal Magnet Mask from Biovène Barcelona

Hi everyone,

How are you doing all? I hope you are all having a fantastic week! And I wish you all an amazing weekend!!

Today’s blog post is all about the Charcoal Magnet Mask from Biovène Barcelona. I reviewed this mask on my Youtube Channel and you can see me apply the mask and remove it!

A little bit about the Mask …

IMG_5578

It is a natural, anti-aging and rejuvenating mask that consists of iron magnetic particles, activated charcoal and a mixture of oils for a smooth, firm and radiant complexion.

The mask comes with a spatula to apply the face mask and not have to mess up your hands! And it comes with a magnet and magnet wraps to remove the mask.

It is 99% natural and suitable for all skin types!

Check out Biovène Barcelona’s website to get more information on the mask by CLICKING HERE and it retails for €25!

What should it do? 

IMG_5582

It helps in making the skin look radiant, leaving it tighter and more lifted.

It helps in giving the skin a toned and youthful look and helps remove impurities.

It also helps the skin become more purified, detoxified and gives vitality to the skin!

It helps in leaving the skin softer, re-energized and revitalized while also smoothing it out!

Finally it also gives out a more glowing complexion, and helps moisturise and hydrate the skin!

How to use …

IMG_5581

After cleansing your face, use the spatula to apply a thin layer of the mask on your face avoiding the eye are and leave it on for 10 minutes.

Hold the magnet and wrap the sheets around the magnet. Then run it near the surface of the skin but do not press the magnet onto the skin. The magnet is powerful enough to grab the mask from the skin without being pressed on the skin!

After the mask is completely removed, rub out the remainder to infuse the ingredients into the skin and then apply your moisturiser.

My thoughts … 

IMG_5501

Ok so I was so excited to try out this mask because of its concept .. I mean a magnet that removes a mask is fun in itself!!

The application was not so bad, however, the spatula sometimes was removing pieces of the mask that I already had applied on my skin. Though applying this with your fingers is way more messier, therefore, better to just use the spatula.

I noticed that the removal of it gets better with every application. The first time I used the sheets with the magnet to remove the mask, things got messy. But then I found that whenever I had to move a sheet which had already pieces of mask that had been removed, I throw those bits away then attach it to the magnet again. Because when mask pieces get stuck on the magnet, it is a little bit of a hassle to remove!

Overall, I loved how this mask left my face! It was softer, smoother and it was glowing! My pores decreased in appearance and the mask did not irritate my skin whatsoever!

IMG_5579
These are some other masks that Biovène so kindly sent me! I will be trying them out soon!! 

I would like to thank Biovène Barcelona once again for collaborating with me and giving me this lovely opportunity to try out their mask!!

Thank YOU guys for reading and for supporting my blog, and I will see you all in my next blog post!!

Love Kezia

The Glitterizer mix n’match eyeshadow palette

IMG_5464.jpg

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

IMG_5458.jpg

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!

Insta Ready

IMG_5469.jpg

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 *

Screen Shot 2018-09-05 at 11.47.20.png

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*

Screen Shot 2018-09-05 at 11.46.41.png

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

IMG_5474.jpg

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

IMG_5477.jpg

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!

Eyeshadow Stix

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!

Blush Box 

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.

Storytelling

IMG_5478.jpg

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*

Screen Shot 2018-09-05 at 11.45.56.png

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*

Screen Shot 2018-09-05 at 11.44.59.png

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)

CAT-LE-BlurredLines-youtube-thumbnail.jpg

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! 

*Blending Sponge*

Screen Shot 2018-09-05 at 11.42.39

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*

csm_Tinted-Blur-Mousse-LE-Blurred-Lines_b4f9c9beee

This mousse is said to cover redness and any skin irregularities. It also adds a fresh, matte complexion.

*Dr.Blur Smoothing Face Primer*

csm_Dr-Blur-Smoothing-Face-Primer-LE-Blurred-Lines_43f717f1ad

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

IMG_5479

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)

Screen Shot 2018-09-05 at 11.26.07.png

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*

Screen Shot 2018-09-05 at 11.42.25

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

IMG_5481.jpg

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!

IMG_5440.jpg
The makeup look I created only using Catrice products!

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!

Until next time, 

Love Kezia

Zaful Autumn Wishlist

Hi lovelies,

I hope you’re doing great! Today’s blog post is all about Zaful, if you didn’t know then get to know! Zaful is a clothing online website that sells a variety of clothing pieces at such great prices!

Their sizes sometimes can be confusing and the materials used are not as seen in the photos. But you do get those outfits which actually are amazing at a great price!! Also here is a discount code to save the bank a little! Use ZFjaned4″ at checkout to get $3 off $25; $6 off $50 or $12 off $100!!

Now I shall be picking 10 items from their website and talking about them right here and why they are on my Zaful Autumn Wishlist … because hey, it’s soon autumn!! Well “autumn like” in Malta.

P.s. The titles and images are linked with the item I show you so you can click on them and it will direct you to Zaful’s website where you can find the exact item I showed you!

#1 Borg Lined Corduroy Jacket 

Screen Shot 2018-09-03 at 14.03.34.png

Ok, so I got a similar jacket like this but in denim and not pink from Primark!! But I would love to have a pink one in my closet too! I don’t think you can go wrong with a jacket like this, pair it with a white top and ripped jeans! And voila snuggly oufit!! This only is $28.99, so that’s like a $30 jacket, that’s such a bargain! It also comes in like a maroon shade, which is a lovely autumn colour, but personally I would prefer this pink shade!!

#2 Cozy Zip Up Faux Fur Winter Short Coat

Screen Shot 2018-09-03 at 14.09.49.png

Ok, so I really want something similar to the teddy bear jacket, which looks so cosy! And this really reminds me of it! It’s only $26.99 and I think it would look so good with any outfit, just cos it spells winter out for me!! I have a love and hate relationship with winter because yes it is better than the heat but I hate it because you always have to wear layers of clothing and so your outfit literally disappears under the your jacket. But having a jacket like this makes me not mind that I have layered up because it is a cute jacket!!

#3 Two Tone Hooded Windbreaker

Screen Shot 2018-09-03 at 14.15.04.png

This is a stylish windbreaker and it doesn’t just come in a white and maroon shade, but also has some other shades as you can see when you click on the link!! This just looks like a cool design and I can see myself wearing this on black ripped jeans but also on my black denim skirt with buttons!!! It looks cosy and comfortable too, and we all want that comfort during the cold months of winter! This is only $19.99, such a great price for this type jacket!

#4 Contrast Crop Sweatshirt

Screen Shot 2018-09-03 at 14.19.08.png

So I love crop tops during the summer months, so if I could continue my crop top passion during the winter months, well Kezia would be happy then! This looks like a cute crop top that I would wear with my blue jeans and white converse! Such a comfy and casual outfit! This comes in different colours but this shade seemed to be calling me! This is only $19.99!

#5 V Neck Frayed Floral Embroidered Pullover Sweater

Screen Shot 2018-09-03 at 14.19.54.png

I love this!! I can so imagine myself wearing this on jeans, trousers and skirts! Especially skirts with black tights on!! I can see it so clearly! I love the floral design and the ruffles at the ends of the top and sleeves! I think this just is a unique kind of sweater with a different look to it! This retails for $19.99 and also comes in black!

#6 Planet Drop Shoulder Sweatshirt

Screen Shot 2018-09-03 at 14.24.12.png

I just liked it because of the cute planet on the sweatshirt and also the colour! I mean this mustard shade screams autumn to me!! I would love to wear this on one of my videos, it will just add a lovely pop of colour to my clips!! Such a sweater completes an outfit and again sorry I am going to say this again, you can pair it wit a pair of jeans and my white converse trainers or my vans! Sorry I wrote pair so many times in that sentence! This retails for $16.81 and also comes in different colours!

#7 Button Up Top And Ruffles Skirt Set

Screen Shot 2018-09-03 at 14.26.36.png

So moving along from sweaters onto two piece sets! So if you didn’t know, Zaful do a lot of two piece affordable sets which are ever so cute! And yes this is not autumn-y but you can easily wear this with a denim jacket and voila you’re still all warm!! And to be fair in Malta it doesn’t get cold for a while so we can afford to wear outfits like this! I just love the pink shade in this outfit!! This retails for $23.35 … only !! You get an entire outfit and I love how there are the buttons!

#8 Pockets Denim Pinafore Dungaree Dress

Screen Shot 2018-09-03 at 14.30.40.png

I love pinafore dresses especially during autumn. Love wearing them on top of plain crop tops and black tights! And then when it gets colder I love wearing my black denim jacket which has wool on it too! These pinafore dresses you can dress them down or up, however, you would like to! This only retails for $25.49 and unfortunately, this is the only colour in this style! But I really like how the model wore it with a striped top, I should invest in one!

#9 Button Up Gingham Short Dress

Screen Shot 2018-09-03 at 14.33.29.png

I love the colour this comes in and again it has the buttons going on it! It’s a cute dress that you can wear either casually in the morning or even on a date night at night! Pairing it again with a denim jacket!! Or else with that cosy teddy bear like jacket mentioned as my number #2!! This retails for $13.35 and is on sale at the moment; and also comes in some other different shades!

#10 Two Tone Crop Pants Set

Screen Shot 2018-09-03 at 14.36.19.png

I had to add this as my last item in my Zaful Autumn Wishlist!! The colour is called arrow green, reminds me of the tv series, Arrow which I stopped watching!! This looks like comfy yet stylish gym wear and I love that it has the cropped top!! My kinda cuppa tea I guess! This only comes in this one shade and retails for $18.48!! Again it’s a two piece set, so that one price is basically covering two items!!

And that was my Zaful Autumn Wishlist! What did you think of it? Let me know in the comments down below!!

Until next, 

Love Kezia
