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!

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!

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!

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-

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!

Again, I would like to thank Downunder Malta!

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!!

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
