Golden Rose – HD Foundation & The Diamond Breeze Collection

Hi Lovelies, 

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!

IMG_5334

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 –

Products mentioned and a little about them –

IMG_5377

HD Foundation

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!

HD Concealer

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!

Diamond Breeze Liquid Eyeshadow

IMG_5339

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!

Diamond Breeze Shimmering Eye pencil

IMG_5378

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!

Diamond Breeze Glitter Top Coat Mascara in 24K Gold

IMG_5342

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!

Diamond Breeze Shimmering Highlight

IMG_5338

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!

Diamond Breeze Shimmering Lip Topper

IMG_5341

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!

Diamond Breeze Shimmering Lipstick 

IMG_5336
Left to Right – 24k Gold and Russet Sparkle
IMG_5337
Plum Sparkle

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 !!

Diamond Breeze Shimmering Body Glow 

40483851_513776992383934_7912416312943443968_n.jpg

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!

Diamond Breeze Shimmering Nail Colour – Russet Sparkle

IMG_5335

I also received a nail polish and have tried it out, it is a gorgeous orange shade perfect for the autumn months!

IMG_5374.jpg
Here was the finished look I created using these products!

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!!

See you guys next time !! 

Love Kezia

My thoughts on Pepsi & Mentos Lip Balms …

Hi everyone, 

I know it has been a while since I uploaded a post on this website but just in case you aren’t following my FACEBOOK/INSTAGRAM, I just finished my dissertation and returned back to Stirling for a little to hand it in. Now that that’s handed in, I can focus again on KezziesCorner whilst looking for a job!! I hope you are all doing well and I have missed you all!

40330217_649724012087933_8696078485313028096_n

Today’s blog post is about some lip balms that Brandnation sent to me from Amber House. I got to try out lip balms from Pepsi and Mentos! Now that the summer months are soon coming to an end, my lips will start drying up more than usual, therefore, having a lip balm everywhere I go is essential!

40366056_535504430236602_392673084458401792_n

Here’s the Pepsi lip balm which to be honest I struggled to figure out how to open it, only when I did, I found myself to shake my head at my silly-ness for not figuring it out earlier haha !! The scent is a direct Pepsi one and it feels comfortable to have on your lips ! If you love Pepsi then I would recommend this lip balm!!

Mentos also have their very own lip balms and I got to try out the Strawberry and Mint Flavours. These lip balms are not only delicious as they are the exact replica of their flavours scents but are also moisturising. I love the strawberry one and is a must have in my bag!

Hope you enjoyed this flavourful blog post! Have you ever tried these flavoured lip balms? Comment down below and thank you so much for reading my post!

Thank you once again to Brandnation and Amber House!

See you guys in my next blog post!

Love Kezia

Testing out Born Pretty Store products – Review

Hi Lovelies, 

How are we all doing? Hope you’re all having a lovely week!! 

Today’s blog post is all about Born Pretty Store which is a website that sells a variety of makeup products at an amazing price range! I also have a 10% DISCOUNT CODE you could use at checkout!! Simply enter KEZZH10 and you will get 10% off your order on all original priced items.

The Products I tested out were –

IMG_5304.jpg

#1 BONNIE CHOICE Magnetic False Eyelashes – Pattern KS093

So these were the second pair of magnetic false eyelashes that I have ever tried and well I know you need patience with such items however, these I couldn’t get them to stay on properly!

This could be because my eye shape is slightly smaller and so they were larger than my actual eye. And unlike false eyelashes where you can trim them to fit your eye shape, with magnetic lashes you technically cannot because if you trim off one end, you’re essentially trimming of one of the magnets! Sorry, that sentence was long but it needed to be! In the end I just gave up and ditched these lashes!

Now I am not saying they aren’t good lashes, but for me they didn’t fit well. The quality of them is good however, the ones I tried from Iris Beauty were slightly more comfortable than these, these felt heavier! They retail for $3.99 and come in different styles!

#2 BONNIE CHOICE Rose Gold False Eyelash Tweezer 

I love these tweezers and I love the colour – Rose Gold, a favourite colour of mine! They grip the lashes so well and they make it easier to apply false lashes!

Honestly, I found this tool as a saviour and a helper to applying false lashes. And it’s only $2.99, such a bargain!!!

#3 BONNIE CHOICE Matte Liquid Lipstick in Screen Siren 

The packaging of this lipstick is so cute and sleek! It is a pigmented matte lipstick, that applies well and is not patchy!! At the moment, it retails for $3.59 and there are 8 different shades!!

The lipstick also is long lasting and isn’t sticky or dry even though it is a matte lipstick!!

Overall, I would recommend the rose gold tweezers and the lipstick! And if you are feeling adventurous you should give those magnetic lashes a try!!

Also, here is a video showing the products in action on IGTV on my Instagram Page-

What do you guys think of the products? Have you ever ordered from Born Pretty Store? Let me know in the comments down below!

Thank you all so much for reading and supporting my blog!!

Kino Cosmetics – Black Peel Off Mask – Review

Hi lovelies, 

How are we all doing? I hope you’re all having an amazing week! Today’s blog post is all about skincare – specifically a Black Peel Off Mask! You can try it out by visiting https://kinocosmetics.com/ and they also have a FB page too if you require more information – click here.

I have tried other peel off masks but this one is slightly different!

37240670_10214895159505156_6986023177507831808_n

This is because the application needs a bit of preparation. Before applying it, you need to warm the tube for 3 minutes. And then squeeze it out of the tube and apply. Different no? I like leaving it on for 30 minutes and then rinse it off. I don’t find that I could peel it off.

This mask includes black active charcoal which helps with providing a deep cleanse to your skin. It helps absorb excess sebum and helps with fighting off formation of blackheads. It helps in providing radiant skin and a refined complexion.

My thoughts … 

Personally I like how the mask leaves my skin feeling fresh, soft and gently cleanses out the impurities. My skin does look clearer and I have been using it for a month, applying it once a week.

However, I do not like how you cannot just go ahead and use it without warming the tube. And I find that you have to warm it for more than 3 minutes to get out more product, and you cannot really apply enough so that when it dries you can peel it off.

BUT I like how it isn’t difficult to remove, I simply rinse it off and dry my face. Just be careful when applying it as it may get messy!

Have you tried out this mask? If not, what do you think of it? Let me know in the comments down below!

Again, I would like to thank Kino Cosmetics Malta for collaborating with me!

I really hope you enjoyed reading my blog post!! Thank you for all your support!

Love Kezia

What I wore at a Wedding ft. Downunder Malta

Hi lovelies, 

Hope you are all doing well! I’m BACK!! I kind of been away lately. Ever since I got back  from Stirling, I expected too much of myself and wanted everything to go back to the way it was. However, that wasn’t possible, I lost my routine, became stressed and I lost my motivation to upload videos and write blog posts!

I only want to write when I am motivated and happy as I don’t want to put up posts or videos which I don’t believe in. But I think now I feel much better, I feel happy again and all set to carry on with blogging! I love it and do not wish to forget it as it is a factor of my happiness!

Anyways, today’s blog post is another fashion related one all about a wedding outfit I wore to my cousin’s wedding! Her wedding was amazing, so lovely with family and friends! I wish them all the best for their future together!

IMG_5191

The outfit I chose is one from Primark! I know right, I didn’t think I would ever find a cute enough outfit for a wedding from Primark but I did and thankfully I found one right before I left Scotland! It’s a two piece outfit with a crop top and a long high waisted skirt. I found it was smart yet fun with its colourful flowers!

37271726_10214895137584608_4027576904327364608_n

I then chose to get out of my comfort zone and opt for a coloured pair of shoes! I found these gorgeous mustard heels from Downunder Malta. You guys know how much I love their shop and I have done previous blog posts featuring them! You can visit their Fb Page or visit their store in Paola to see what lovely shoes they have in stock right now!

IMG_5193

Here were my previous blog posts featuring other pairs of shoes from Downunder Malta –

37238897_10214887940364682_5806292658838044672_n

As I wrote in my previous blog posts, Downunder Malta have a variety of different styled shoes from high heels to sneakers to occasional shoes (like for weddings!) , all at great prices and each style comes in a number of different colours!

37333622_10214895137104596_1065630318700003328_n

These pair are just too cute because they also have a bow at the back of them, which gives them a unique vibe! I really enjoyed wearing them and danced the night away!! The same style of shoes comes in different colours and retails for €18!! Bargain Alert!!

37201597_10212106109394361_1176976194797568000_n.jpg

And here are some outfit photos I took at the wedding!

What do you guys think of this outfit? Let me know in the comments down below!! 

Again, I would like to thank Downunder Malta!

Thank you all for reading and supporting my blog I really appreciate it!!

Black and White Stripes – OOTD

Hi everyone, 

35927155_10214739467972965_7862396501043970048_n

I hope you are all having a lovely day! A few days ago I wore this outfit on a Sunday whilst visiting Marsaxlokk and had a lovely lunch by the sea!

36035716_10214739466892938_2914131328901316608_n

This cute outfit is made up of a black and white striped pattern and is a co-ord/two piece outfit from Zaful. The material of it may be slightly too thick for a hot summer’s day however, it will be perfect for a summer’s night. But, it didn’t bother me that Sunday when I went out. I had on sandals from Primark although, they don’t show on the photo!

36188867_10214739466372925_6544524067309879296_n

The outfit also makes you look taller, the trousers come with slits on the sides and since it is a two piece outfit you can easily mix and match both items with other items from your closet! You can get this very same piece right here. The only thing is, my nan added straps onto the strapless top as Kezia likes having her straps!

34963111_10214739465852912_3658212229427232768_n

I also mentioned this outfit in my Zaful wishlist and am so happy that it’s in my closet!

Did you guys like this outfit? Do you guys want to see more outfit posts on my blog? Let me know in the comments down below!!

Thank you all for reading!! And thank you Zaful!

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 –

The Antiox Facial Plan – Freshly Cosmetics – Review

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all doing well. I am hoping to come out with 3 NEW blog posts this week! So stay tuned and make sure to be following my blog to get notification emails of when I post a new blog post!!

IMG_4904

Today’s blog post is all about a brand called Freshly Cosmetics. They recently released their brand in the UK and they have lots of skincare goodies for you to try out! I got the opportunity to test out something from them and I received the Antiox Facial Plan. I am so grateful for this opportunity and I would like to thank Freshly Cosmetics so much!

I just would like to say that I love the packaging from how it was sent to the packaging of the products themselves!

IMG_4909

The Antiox Facial Plan is made up of a –

  1. Fresh Green Micellar Water
  2. Purifying Facial Toner
  3. Multi-Antioxidant Concentrate Serum
  4. Multi-Antioxidant Facial Moisturiser

I have been trying it out for 2 weeks and am happy with the results. Though, I have some good and bad notes to write about this plan.

What I like about it is that it is a 4 simple step plan which basically cleans, purifies and moisturises your skin. The products are made in a way which are simply and easy to use.

IMG_4896

#1 You first would start with the Fresh Green Micellar Water and I simply get a round cotton pad and apply it all over my face. You could also spray it throughout the day on your face, to freshen up your skin!

This product helps hydrate your skin and interestingly contains an anti-stress extract, so for those going through their final exams at uni maybe this would help you and your skin relax!

The thing I don’t like about it is the scent, it’s just such a strong scent and to smell it in the morning, it’s just too much.

IMG_4897

#2 Then you would use the Purifying Facial Tonic which again has a strong scent but not as much as the Micellar Water. Again I apply this with a cotton pad. I guess yes you would need some cotton pads for this Antiox Facial Plan!

This product helps hydrate, refresh and get rid of dust accumulated through the air. It simply helps remove the impurities and honestly I do feel my skin to be cleaner and softer after using this product. However, I noticed that it did make my skin feel a little sticky but I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing.

IMG_4899

#3 The next product is something I never incorporated in my skincare routine and it is a Multi-Antioxidant Concentrate Serum. I loved applying this, reminded me of being in Science class and having a pipette! Just love that word!

I loved this, it brightened my skin and it gave it a glow! This serum helps to reduce, repair and prevent signs of ageing.

IMG_4898

#4 The final product that you would use in this plan is the Multi-Antioxidant Facial Moisturiser. This can be easily applied evenly on your skin and you have to wait a minute or two so that the serum sets and absorbs before applying the moisturiser.

This moisturiser is a hydrating face cream that has antioxidants which helps hydrate your skin and again reduces skin stress.

This plan helps freshen, purifies and balances skin’s pH with lime, burdock and camomile extracts. Believe me the lime is noticeable. It helps with hydration and also includes vegan hyaluronic acid. It is dermatologically tested and suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.

My final thoughts … 

IMG_4905

I noticed my skin to be brighter, fresher and had a lovely natural glow to it. However, I also noticed that as I was using these products both in the morning and in the evening, it was making my skin red. Therefore, I might have been having a reaction and so I only completed this plan for two weeks because it was too heavy for my skin and I have combination and sensitive skin.

I am now just using the serum as that was my favourite product from the entire plan and I am using it with my usual everyday skin routine.

So that was my review on this Antiox Facial Plan from Freshly Cosmetics. You can visit their website where they have more plans and information. If you subscribe you can get 15% off your order!

They post to a lot of different countries. To my fellow Maltese followers, unfortunately they do not ship to Malta however, they do ship to England so you could use Send On or other ship it to services!

Again, I would like to thank Freshly Cosmetics for these lovely products!

What do you think of the products? Are you interested in trying out such a plan? Have you ever tried out any product from this brand? Let me know in the comments down below!! 

Thank you so much for reading!! 

Love Kezia

Talever – Online Clothes Shopping

Hi everyone, 

Yes here I am here with my second blog post this week! I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday and hope you are all well!

Today’s blog post is going to be about a recently new Online Shopping Website called Talever. I know that some of us love shopping inside a shop as being able to see the clothes with your own eyes and being able to try them on is much better than online shopping for clothes. However, online shopping is something I think most of us do and well here is another website that you can do some damage to your bank but end up with some really cute bits at good prices.

Talever sells a variety of items ranging from casual dresses to pretty floral dresses which one can wear at weddings – perfect for the wedding season that is among us! There are also clothes for all sizes and some really cute party dresses too!

I will be writing about some of the sections of clothing that I always look for on an online website and attaching some photos. If you like the outfit that you see, simply click on the picture and it will take you directly to the outfit on the website!

Casual Dresses

One section that I love visiting on any shopping website is the Casual Dresses section. I love how you can make an entire outfit with just one piece of clothing, saves some money but you can also look so cute for just so little! Here are some examples of casual dresses that have caught my eye on Talever!

Screen Shot 2018-06-10 at 17.44.22.png

Screen Shot 2018-06-10 at 17.45.28
There are also Maxi Dresses!

Floral Dresses

My favourite kind of pattern to wear during the Summer season is anything with a floral pattern! I also love florals on dresses and right now it’s wedding season, so a floral dress in my opinion is a perfect choice for a dress for a wedding! There are so many to choose from, but here are my top 3 picks of dresses that I would wear as a wedding guest!

Screen Shot 2018-06-10 at 17.53.51.png

Screen Shot 2018-06-10 at 17.54.02
Comes in 2 shades!

Screen Shot 2018-06-10 at 17.54.21
Comes in 3 shades!

Mini Dresses 

There are also lots of cute Mini Dresses – again for ALL SIZES! Here were my top 3 picks!

Screen Shot 2018-06-10 at 17.58.48.png

Screen Shot 2018-06-10 at 17.58.34.png

Sexy Party Dresses 

And the final section that I am going to be sharing with you all is the section with the cute Party Dresses. They have plenty to choose from in all styles and colours!!

Screen Shot 2018-06-10 at 18.02.49.png

Screen Shot 2018-06-10 at 18.03.23
I LOVE this!! Comes in mint green too!

Testing out Iris Beauty NYC – Makeup – Review

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all having an amazing day! Today’s blog post is a review on Iris Beauty. This brand is well known for their contact lenses. However, the products I am reviewing for you all today are all eye makeup products.

4

I would like to thank Iris Beauty for this opportunity to review their products. They also gave my lovely followers a 15% Discount Code! Simply enter kezia45 at checkout to get 15% off your next order.

The products I tested out are –

Flirtatious Look Magnetic Eyelashes

3

I never tried magnetic lashes before until I tried out these. This concept is amazing, false lashes without the need to apply glue – such an amazing invention!! They are less messy to apply and connect together thanks to the magnets which are on the sides of the lashes. To see me apply the lashes watch my video on my Youtube Channel, I linked it down below!

I still need to keep practising on how to apply the magnetic lashes as I do not yet apply them well or quick. But I think there is room for improvement and with practice I will hope to get better.

The set I got were called the Flirtatious ones and they are just gorgeous and give a natural looking effect. I recommend these and if I ever get good at applying these I might be very happy to not have to apply glue with false lashes!

Perfecting Eyebrow Brush 

2

I love this eyebrow product and have been using it in my everyday makeup routine! This product is smudge proof, fade proof, waterproof and is long wearing. The tip of the pen makes it easier to fill in your brows and create any bold or wide or thin shapes that you desire.

What is interesting is that it has coconut oil which helps the formula! The shade I got is chocolate mousse but there are other shades that you can choose from!

Ultra Defining Eyeliner 

1

This eyeliner is amazing. It is super pigmented, waterproof and dries down so fast! It is creamy, smooth, glides so easily and has a precision tip that helps with the application. This helps in creating a perfect cat eye!

It is available in three shades – a blue/brown/black. The one I got is the black one called Jet Black! A great pen eyeliner!

So these were my thoughts on these products. Here is the video I did showing you guys how exactly they test out! Hope you enjoy watching!

Have you guys ever tried anything from Iris Beauty? Let me know in the comments down below!!

Hope you enjoyed reading, thank you for doing so!! 

Love Kezia
