Cut Crease Makeup Tutorial ft. SOPH X Makeup Revolution

Hi everyone, 

I am currently in Malta for a little trip but on Sunday will fly back to Stirling. But I couldn’t miss my weekly blog post! And like I wrote, this week you got two blog posts and not just one!

So here is the second one of the week!

Screen Shot 2017-11-17 at 15.54.48

It is all about a Cut Crease Makeup Tutorial using Soph X Makeup Revolution’s Eyeshadow and Highlighter Palette.

I love both products. The eyeshadow palette has a variety of colour choices and you can create so many looks out of it! It is only £10! That is such a great price! The packaging is so cute too however, the open it, it is such a hassle!!

The shadows applies well, there is some fall out so if you prefer to not do your foundation before your eye makeup then do so! But I honestly don’t mind and you can brush off the fall out and just re apply some concealer. The shadows blend well and are so pigmented.  I used the shade fairy lights which is a shimmer shade all over my lid, and I dampened my brush to up the effect of that shadow and it worked out great!

I also loved the highlighter palette that comes with a variety of highlight shades. They are so pigmented and you should definitely mix and match to brighten up that highlight!! The highlighter palette is £8. All in all I really loved using both palettes and think that they are worth the buy!!

Here is the makeup tutorial –

Here are the products I used in the makeup tutorial on the video!

♡ Golden Rose Liquid Lipsticks Lip Swatches – Ladymakeup.eu – 10% Discount Code

Hi everyone,

It’s WEDNESDAY!! Which means I have a NEW VIDEO for you all!! And I am so excited to be sharing this video with you all as it was one of my favourites to film.

As you know I LOVE lip products and so here is a LIP SWATCH VIDEO showing you all 12 SHADES from the brand called GOLDEN ROSE!

I would like to personally thank Ladymakeup.eu for giving me the opportunity to review these products for all my followers!!

I also would like to add that ladymakeup.eu is an online makeup shop which holds a lot of different drugstore brands from ELF, Makeup Revolution, MUA, Real Techniques, Sleek, NYX and many more!

They even ship to MALTA which is great, however they do charge a shipping fee!

They even gave me a discount code for all my followers to use!

Use – Kezia10 – at checkout and get 10% off your order!!

So anyways going back to the lipsticks I have never tried anything from Golden Rose so I was excited to try out these new lip products. They are called the Longlasting Liquid Lipsticks which are Matte and Kissproof!!

A basic summary – I tried 12 shades however on the ladymakeup.eu website there are 5 NEW SHADES!

There are a lot of pinks mostly and I simply love them! They have a scent and their formula is very creamy. They remind me a lot of the Milani Amore Matte Lip Cremes.

They are very soft to the lips and not drying! They are quite long lasting however, if you are anticipating a snack or food I would recommend you keeping it in your bag to reapply!

In the video you will see me testing out whether or not they are kiss proof by kissing the back of my hand. And let me tell you they are however they have to completely dry down to a matte finish or else there would be SOME transfer!

They also don’t take that long to dry!

The sad thing is that they are not named and only have a shade number given to each one!

Here are a closer look to the 12 shades! 

And here is the video – 

Have you ever visited the ladymakeup.eu website?

Have you ever tried these lipsticks? Do you like Golden Rose?

Which was your favourite shade? 

Thank you so much for watching my video and reading my blog post!

Happy mid week!! 

Love Kezia

Arad Dead Sea Malta – Fluffy Liquid Soap Mousse Review

Hi everyone,

This is my fourth post reviewing an Arad product!

I truly am impressed by what these products are doing to my skin. I love the feel of them on my face and now even all over my body!

If you would like to see the other three posts (with the first one giving you a summary of what the Arad brand is all about) then have a look on these posts –

Arad Dead Sea Malta – The Facial Cleansing Milk Review

Arad Dead Sea Malta – Facial Mud Mask – Review

Arad – Hydro Light Moisturizer for Oily Skin – Review

Also, for those of you who are Maltese you can head on over to Arad Dead Sea Malta‘s Facebook Page.

images-6

Today’s review is on a body product called The Fluffy Liquid Soap Mousse. It is one of the new products from Arad. I was so hesitant on using this as my body is so sensitive and when I change products it would just set an alarm all over my body; and I could end up with red patches on my skin!

But due to the ingredients being so natural such as Aloe Vera and Vitamin extracts, those red patches I feared never showed up! I was so glad and so I tried it a couple of more times and here I am now being able to write up this review for you guys!

It is described as a “special soaping experience!” It comes out as a “cloud of fluffy soap” that should melt on your skin whilst cleaning and nurturing it. It is enriched with Dead Sea minerals such as Aloe Vera extract and Vitamin E.

It also states that it may be applied to all skin types.

 How did I apply it?

images-7

Well, on the bottle it states that you have to shake it and then turn it upside down and simply push the handle. Honestly, it truly did come out like a cloud of fluffy soap!! You could compare it to when you push out whipped cream out of the can! Then you simply rub it all over your body and rinse.

The soap itself is so soft and when you glide it onto your skin it just feels so gentle on your body.

Now it does have a weird smell of men’s after shave when you put it on BUT this smell gradually lessens as you rinse it off your body. Therefore, if you do not like men’s after shave then do not use it as you might not like it!

For me personally it did not bother me!

images-5

My thoughts – 

I can say that I have replaced my everyday body wash with this product as I am so happy with it! Not only does my body not flare up into red patches of mayhem but my skin feels so smooth and soft!

I definitely recommend this product, and it is a perfect product to use when you are having that spa day in the comfort of your own home; while taking a bubble bath to get rid of all the stress of the week!

Have you tried any of the Arad products? What do you think of this product?

Thank you so much for reading!

Love Kezia

Sweet Sparkle – Naughty or Nice Unboxing

Hi everyone, 

So yes today is Thursday and I am a little tardy – by a day – of posting a blog post related to the video that I uploaded on Youtube yesterday!

But …. it still is here just 24 hours later.

Today’s video is the Sweet Sparkle Unboxing of the December box! I know I am so late having already received the January box. Although I am thinking that for the January box I will only do a blog post related to it!

14562030_214578932283687_4616189506385608704_n.jpg

The December box is a definite hit for me unlike the November one.

I simply love what we received and am so happy with what we got!

screen-shot-2017-01-19-at-21-12-40

The products mentioned – 

L.A Colors Day to Night Eyeshadow Palette

Now the colour choice is a good one as you can create a number of looks with them. However, they are not at all easy going when it comes to blending them out!

J.cat Beauty Lovestruck Blusher & Bronzer in Babe

I absolutely love this blush and bronzer combo! I have reached for this product a number of times ever since I filmed this video. You have to be so careful to not apply a lot and try and blend it as fast as possible as it does tend to stick to one place if you apply it wrongly/too much!

Kasina Professional Fake Eyelashes – 100 % Human Hair with Tapered Ends

OMG!! You guys know my struggle when it comes to false lashes! But these didn’t give me that sense of impatience and anger rather the opposite! I used my lash glue from Ardell and simply applied them correctly in one try! SUCCESS!

LA Girl Flat Velvet Matte Lipstick in Runway

This shade is just gorgeous!! I love this so much !! Even though I do not like the shape of the bullet lipstick as it makes it difficult to apply I still love it nonetheless! You do have to be careful with darker colours as they can be sheer and patchy but this didn’t give me much trouble either! Love how it settled onto my lips!

Bella Piere Cosmetics Clear Eye liner Base

I don’t really know the exact job of this eyeliner but its supposed to make the job of applying eyeliner easier. Now I don’t know if it was because the black eyeliner was good but it was a piece of cake to do some winged eye liner!

Bella Piere Cosmetics Noir Eye Liner

As I said above, the eyeliner went on perfectly and I really love how black this product is! It isn’t sheer just jet black so to say!! I love it!

screen-shot-2017-01-19-at-21-12-24
The look I created using these products!

So as you can see the products this month were a cuppa tea when compared to the November ones!!

I can already tell you that the January products are a hit however I did not try them! But I really think I will like them!!

Let me know in the comments down below whether I should do a blog post about the January box or a video !! 

Have you tried the Sweet Sparkle subscription? Have you tried any of the products?

MUA New Velvet Lip Lacquer Shades – Review & Swatches!!

Hi everyone, 

I am so excited to share with you all today’s video! As you know I am a big fan of MUA – Makeup Academy.

They sell such good quality products, a variety of products and they are all so inexpensive!

Today’s video is all about 5 new shades from their Velvet Lip Lacquer range that they had released last Autumn.

The Velvet Lip Lacquer range include a variety of products. I also recently purchased two more which aren’t in this video. But maybe I could do a haul of what other new products I purchased from them recently!

11.jpg

The formula of these lipsticks dries to a complete matte look and doesn’t have a strong scent. They however, do not last that long although this varies with colours. Another distinction is that some colours  – mostly darker ones – are extremely patchy so you have to be careful on how you apply them.

Also, it was my first time trying a blue lipstick and I have mixed feelings about it! It also took the longest to dry as the others dried quickly.

The shades are – 

Posie – A cute light nude brown shade

img_5908

Hustle – A dark pink/red shade

23.jpeg

Firecracker – A fun pinky red

2342

Splash – A not too dark or not too light blue – just in between – shade

fsg

Flair – A vampy red

To see the entire video with swatches and in depth review then watch the video below –

Have you ever tried this range? What’s your favourite shade? 

Thank you so much for reading !!

Sweet Sparkle Unboxing – November – Precious Metals (Better late than never!)

Hi everyone,

Yes I KNOW! This unboxing is a tad late! I know it is late because November was 2 months ago and I already received my December box which I still have yet to try out.

The look I created with the November Box

Unlike Lip Monthly I like doing full videos related to Sweet Sparkle because if you don’t know, the box sends out a couple of products whereby you can create an entire look! So I like just opening the box and filming myself to see what look I create with said products. However, I do not think that is going to be the case for the December box.

Comment down below if you want to see a video of me unboxing the December box as well as doing a makeup look with those products!

Anyways, so here is my video, 2 months late of the November Sweet Sparkle Unboxing.

You could visit their website right here on – http://www.sweetsparkle.com

A Month Subscription costs $24.50 so it is a little bit pricey however, we get products from drugstore brands (such as Jordana, Wet n’Wild, LA Girl etc… ) which for us Maltese we don’t see much of.

However there are different plans you could sign up to and if you want to have a look you can click here.

15878213_10210182455370498_692778562_o

The November month’s theme was Precious metals and so we got a pure metals fluid eyeshadow and metallic lipstick which I was excited about because I don’t own anything metallic in my collection!

BUT I was disappointed with this box because unlike the previous boxes we did not receive a MASCARA and I don’t think it was worth the money. I didn’t even receive the Precious Metals theme card we get every month. So it was a THUMBS DOWN for me.

Here is the video –

Here is what we received – 

Beauty Treats – Roses Eyeshadow Palette

This is an eyeshadow palette which I have used this eyeshadow palettes on other occasions besides for this video. That means that I liked it especially the rose pink shade I used in the video.

The eyeshadows are quite powder-y however I was not bothered by it.
Absolute New York Products – Pure Metal Veil Fluid Eyeshadow – in Champagne

I loved this product and loved experimenting with it. It emphasised my lines on my eyelids but concealing them and setting the concealer it should help.
LA Girl -Glide Gel Eyeliner

For the makeup look I created I wish I never used this product. But applying this product on its own with maybe one coloured eyeshadow on my eyelid would be great!
Jordana – Coral Sandy Beach Blush Powder

The blush is not my favourite colour however, it applied well on my cheeks.
City Color – Highlight Trio Palette

This highlight I LOVE! I love using the 2 lightest shades in the palette. Cannot see that yellow one as a bronzer as it has chunks of glitter inside.

I don’t like bronzers like that. But I love love love the last two light shades; they give a lovely highlighted look.
Klean Color Metallic Lip Gloss

I have never ever tried a Metallic lipstick before until tryout this one. It is a little sticky and it is not my favourite colour however the brand’s formula is amazing as it dries completely matte and lasts quite a long time!

How the metallic Liquid Lipstick looked on my lips

So what did you think of this month’s box? Are you subscribed to this subscription? 

Thank you so much for reading, and I wish you a lovely day/evening!

Love Kezia
