Christmas 2019 at The Body Shop

Hi everyone,

How are you all doing? It seems finally in Malta the weather is finally getting colder! In fact, I am writing this blog post whilst hearing rain pouring outside. Best feeling ever!!

November is soon coming to an end, which means that December is right around the corner. This means that Christmas is soon with us – with a month to go!

I cannot believe it, time really does fly by!

So today, I am writing up this blog post to share with you what The Body Shop have in store for us this Christmas 2019! So if you love pampering your bodies and love smelling AMAZING, then continue reading!!

I would like to thank The Body Shop Malta for giving me a tour of their Christmas 2019 products!

This year’s CHRISTMAS SCENTS at The Body Shop!

I will not repeat this in each one but THE PACKAGING of each of these items is AMAZING!!

Juicy Pear – This includes the Body Yoghurt, Shower Gel, Body Butter, Bath Bomb, Body Scrub and Hand Cream. I love this fruity scent! I have been using the hand cream almost every day but have been using another scented one on alternate days.

Rich Plum – Fun fact – the first ever body shop product I bought was a plum body butter! This scent comes as a Body Scrub, Shower Gel, Bath Bomb, Body Yoghurt and Body Butter. And of course as a Hand Cream as well – this is the other one that I have been loving!!!

Warm Vanilla – Vanilla lovers out there I bring you the scent you are most definitely going to love! This comes as a Shower Gel, Body Yoghurt, Body Scrub, Body Butter, Bath Bomb and Hand Cream.

Vanilla Pumpkin – I LOVE this scent!! It mixes what I love about Fall and my love for vanilla – you cannot ask for more! This comes as a Body Butter and Shower Gel.

You can buy all these as individual items, however, The Body Shop have also created the cutest gift sets with these products!!

They also created these festive sacks of the Juicy Pear, Rich Plum and Warm Vanilla scents – they would make amazing Christmas Gifts for your loved ones!!!

Also ….. The Body Shop have released a WIDE selection of ADVENT CALENDARS! I love their designs – they show the first ever The Body Shop Outlet which had opened up in Brighton! There’s also a female santa clause to promote inclusion of everybody! It’s just amazing! So if you love The Body Shop and are looking for your advent calendar for 2019 I would recommend heading over to The Body Shop!

What do you think of The Body Shop? Why not treat yourselves with any of the above? What would you wish on your christmas wishlist from the four scents mentioned above? Will you be picking up something that I mentioned on today’s blog post? I would love to know!!

Thank you so much for reading and I wish you all a lovely weekend!

Again, thank you to the Body Shop for giving me a tour of their Christmas Joy at the Body Shop!!

Love Kezia

Malta Fashion Week 2019 – Ritienne Zammit

MFWA – 29/05/2019

Hi everyone,

I hope everyone is doing great! It’s official, Malta Fashion Week 2019 is OVER! Yesterday there were the fashion week awards – congratulations to all the nominees and winners!

Today, I am sharing with you this post on the last fashion show that was on Wednesday! It was truly one amazing show by Ritienne Zammit.

Ritienne Zammit

Ritienne Zammit participated in Malta Fashion Week before and back in 2017 when I attended my first fashion week I had seen her show and had enjoyed it – the outfits were stunning and as a designer she is amazing! As Malta Fashion Week’s website states, “Ritienne’s dark edge implores to be seen beneath the historical motifs, strong political messages and poetic metaphors, on which her collections are strongly based.”

An interesting fact about Ritienne – She was awarded,‘The Most Outstanding Student of the Year’ Award 2009-10 at MCAST Institute of Creative Arts in collaboration with the Malta Society of Arts, Manufacture and Commerce as well as the ‘New Designer Award’ in 2013 at the Malta Fashion Awards. 

My thoughts on the show … 

WOW ….. just WOW!!!! I was amazed at her show, at her designs, at the hair, the makeup, the jewellery (by Yana’s Jewellery!). She had a dog in the show and then she had a baby! She had an amazing Queen and King! My god her designs, featuring feasts which are a Maltese Tradition in her outfits she created! She took me to Game of Thrones vibes too, I just was in awee throughout the show! Here are some pieces which struck me –

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 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!!

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!!

Pixi Pretties – Pixi X Chloe, Pixi X Weylie and Pixi X Dulce – Review

Hi Lovelies! 

I hope you are all doing well!! Today’s blog post is an exciting one! I cannot believe the package I received a few weeks ago! I never believed that I ever deserved such a package!

IMG_4827

IMG_4824

So a few days ago I received this amazing box from Pixi Beauty. I truly appreciate it so much, the packaging is amazing and the products found inside are just exquisite!

IMG_4793

Pixi collaborated with three Beauty Youtubers, one who I have been following ever since I started watching beauty youtubers online! They are 3 amazing ladies, three women who inspire me to continue doing what I am doing – Weylie Hoang, Chloe Morello & Dulce Candy!

Here is a video where I tested out all the products –

Products from the Collaborations

Pixi + Chloe – Palette Chloette – Romantic Radiance

IMG_4795

This romantic palette features some must haves from Chloe Morello. It includes three super silky blushes and six eyeshadow shades. It is also then includes a trio of two eye brow powders and a liner shades. The eyeshadow shades are so pretty and so pigmented!

IMG_4800
Blush Swatches

I love the palette, yes I don’t get the small mirror they included in it but it is a cute palette for multi-use!

IMG_4802
The shadow swatches

IMG_4803
The 2 eyebrow and 1 liner shade!

 

In the video I used the shades Knot and Unity for my eyebrows. And the Romance Shade as my blush! I loved the blush Romance shade, so beautiful and such a radiant and healthy pink on my cheeks!

Pixi + Chloe – Lip Icing – Cake –

IMG_4798

This liquid lip product adds an amazing 3D glimmer! You could use it on its own or you could use it on top of a lip colour for a gorgeous instant glow boost!! It is infused with nourishing rose hip and marula oil!!

I love using it on top of another lipstick, it just sits so well! I love the scent of it it’s amazing!!

Pixi + Weylie – Eyeshadow Palette Let’s Talk

IMG_4813

This palette includes beautiful shimmers and matte shades. I love this palette, it includes pigmented, blendable eye shadows! It is also a cute small palette, which is travel friendly!

IMG_4817
The shadow swatches

In the video I used the shades Potato and Beautis in the crease. I then used Bomb in my outer corner and blended everything together! I finally used Itty Bitty as my inner corner highlight and brow bone highlight. The Itty Bitty shade is a gorgeous colour, I love it and it gives the most radiant glow!

Pixi + Weylie Black Liner Duo – Felt Tip Liner + Kohl Liner

IMG_4819

This 2 in 1 Black Kohl pencil and liquid eyeliner duo is the perfect liner to add to your everyday eye makeup essentials!

IMG_4820
Kohl Liner and Liquid Liner Swatches

I love the liquid liner, it is so pigmented and creates the most deep black winged eye lined look! But I also loved the kohl liner and love using it on my waterline!

 Pixi + Dulce – Cafe con Dulce – Sweet Glow –

IMG_4805

This is just a beautiful palette with glowing shades which can be used as blushes, cheek highlights or lid hues to enhance and add luminosity!

IMG_4807
Cafe Con Dulce swatches

The colours in this palette are just so beautiful, so shimmery and just super pigmented! I love it! In the video I used Bon Bon as my eyeshadow base shade and then I used Brillante as my cheek bone highlight! I loved this as my cheek highlight, I love the natural glow it gives! Simply beautiful! 

Pixi + Dulce Cande – Dulce’s Lip Candy – Sugar & Spice Palette

IMG_4811
Dulce’s Lip Candy Swatches

Again, this palette has some stunning shades chosen by Dulce! They are a velvety rich colour to both your lips and cheeks as a blush! The multi-use formula has antioxidants and minerals to help keep the skin soft and hydrated! That sounds amazing, doesn’t it?

The shades apply easily and smoothly! I love the shades, they are so beautiful! The shade I used in the video was Enamorada! It is such a cute pink shade!

 

Here is the finished look I created using all these products –

IMG_4781

IMG_4782

So I would like to thank Pixi Beauty once again for the most amazing package I have ever received! I have no idea how I ever deserved such a package but THANK YOU so much! You made my day!! 

And thank you to you guys my followers, who support me and who read my content and watch my videos! Thank you so much as without you guys KezziesCorner won’t be the same!!

Testing out Beauty Big Bang Makeup Products!!

Hi everyone, 

How are you all doing? I am having a break from doing assignments and so here I am coming to you with a NEW blog post!! 

Screen Shot 2017-10-26 at 13.47.44

Today’s blog post is all about some makeup products from BeautyBigBang! I would like to thank BeautyBigBang for giving me another opportunity to test out their products. And stay tuned as some time soon there will be another video/blog post testing out some new lipsticks!! So thank you BeautyBigBang!!

Make sure to visit their website which is full of makeup products from eyeshadows to lipsticks to makeup brushes!! They also sell other items such as nail products!!

All products are at a cheap price and I also have a Discount Code you guys can use!! Simply enter KEZZ10 at checkout!!

You could also check out BeautyBigBang’s social media right here –

I have already done one other video testing out some of their metallic liquid lipsticks, you can check that video out by CLICKING HERE. (And a blog post on those products is RIGHT HERE).

Today’s products are not only lipsticks but I tried out Mermaid Brushes and an eyeshadow palette. Here were my thoughts on the products –

The Mermaid Brushes 

IMG_1592

This is a set of 5 brushes, they retail for £5.34 and they look aesthetically so pretty! I love their unique shape and the bristles are soft and gentle! My favourite brush out of them all was the blending brush.

IMG_1588

I loved using that with the eyeshadows. The rest of the brushes are alright but I think I would simply prefer to just keep them on my vanity making it look even cuter with the brushes!!

The Eyeshadow Palette 

IMG_1679

This palette comes with 40 different shades and retails for £6.10 only!! I think this is an ideal palette for those makeup lovers who are just going to start using makeup – perfect for beginners. They are slightly powdery and you would think that they are pigmented but once you are blending them with the brush the shade is sort of brushed off and you have to continuously go back and forth with them.

IMG_1603
The eyeshadow look I created using this palette!

But hey at least you increase your blending skills!! I love the colour variety and with all of the shades you can create a number of different looks!! Also, there are 2 palettes you can choose from, I chose set 1 which is more natural whilst the other set has lots of colours!

The Matte Lipsticks 

IMG_1680

IMG_1681

IMG_1701

There are 10 different shades and they each retail for £3.35. There is a variety of lip colours that you can choose from – pinks, nudes. reds and purples. I got six shades of them and I absolutely love love the formula!

It is a matte formula and it just dries down so quickly!! It isn’t sticky or tacky and no problem is caused when trying to remove it! It also lasts long but obviously needs reapplication after eating! But I love this and I love the packaging they come in too!

Here are the swatches of the lipsticks – 

Shade 1

Unboxing – Beauty Plait – October 2017

Hi everyone,

Hope you all are doing great. Today is such a lovely day in Stirling, I couldn’t help but sit down at my desk and write a blog post.

I am so excited to share with you all Malta’s very first Beauty Subscription Box thanks to Plait. Plait is a subscription box website which have 5 different boxes ranging from Maltese food, snacks, beer, wine and now even makeup!

22429191_10212723792902348_931295335_o

What’s exciting is that because most of the other subscription bags worldwide don’t ship to Malta, but we finally have our very own beauty box called Beauty Plait. Now, the Beauty Plait doesn’t ship internationally, however the rest of the boxes do.

You can choose from 3 different subscription types:

  • Month subscription – €21
  • 3 months subscription – €19
  • 6 months subscription – €17

What does the Beauty Plait box consist of? 

IMG_2014

The beauty box comes with 5 products, not sample sizes but full size products and is worth over €40!! I also liked how the box came with a quote that said, “Happy girls are the prettiest”, from Audrey Hepburn.

Now the November box is already SOLD OUT but you can order the next box, which is the December box on November 1st 2017.

And you can order it right here – https://plait.com.mt/beautyplait/?rf=?748dv90d

You can also follow Plait on their Social media to know more about them and their boxes:

I would like to THANK Plait for giving me the opportunity to review the Beauty Plait!! Thank you so much!! 

Now I will write about the products that were in the October box and my thoughts on the products. You can also watch my video right here of trying the products out for the first time too – 

The products that were found in the October box were:

IMG_2022

TEOXANE Advanced Perfecting Shield

IMG_2028

This is quite a high quality kind of product, sold at a high price. It has SPF 30 which I love because Malta needs that SPF to protect us against UV rays!! It is a tinted face cream that you can apply alone or before applying foundation. It contains Hyaluronic Acid and peptides which helps our skin. It states that it should create a smooth, radiant base for makeup.

My Thoughts – 

I found the product to leave my skin with a glow. I loved the way it made my skin feel. I like wearing it on its own but I also like wearing it alongside foundation and a full face of makeup. It creates a nice base for when you apply the rest of your makeup!

Milkshake Whipped Cream Leave in Foam

IMG_2027

I love Milkshake products mostly because of that amazing vanilla scents they come in!! This leave in foam conditioner contains milk, wheat germ and casein proteins that help strengthen the hair whilst detangling agents help in adding smoothness and shine.

My Thoughts – 

This product has been added to my Hair Routine. I just love applying it to my ends of my damp hair after a shower. And then I style it by making it wavier. It just leaves my hair feeling soft and shiny!

EVAGARDEN Glaring Eye shadow – Shade 261

IMG_2025

IMG_2026

This is a powder eye shadow that leaves us with a pearled and ‘metallized’ effect. It is also long lasting as well.

My Thoughts – 

IMG_2035
The finished eye look.

Shade 261 is a gorgeous metallic dark brown with speckles of glitter. I loved applying it as my shade in the outer corner to finish off my brown smokey eye makeup look. I found the shadow to blend well and it was not at all powdery.

Pupa Diva’s Lashes Mascara Maxi Volume

IMG_2030

IMG_2031

This mascara states to have a volumising effect and creates “defined, sculpted and perfectly combed eyelashes.” It thickens lashes without adding weight.

My Thoughts

I loved how the mascara applied and it separated my lashes well. It did not transfer on my lids and simply lengthened my lashes. I did not find it to create that much volume, in my opinion it is more of a lengthening mascara rather than a volumising one.

Mac Dazzleglass – Shade – Get Rich Quick

IMG_2029

I love the name of this gloss! This gloss contains “large particle pearls that reflect and refract light to mimic the brilliance of quartz and opal crystals.” It provides us with shine and states to apply smoothly and is a non-sticky, non-tacky, lightweight and moisturising formula. You can wear alone, or layer over lipstick or lipglass for dramatic effect.

My Thoughts –

IMG_2038
The finished look with the Dazzleglass 

I was so excited for this product but I was disappointed with it. It states that it should have a vanilla scent yet I do not smell one. It is a little sticky and not moisturising on the lips but what I was mostly disappointed was that it wasn’t as pigmented as I hoped it would be. This product didn’t dazzle me at all. However, I preferred using it on a lipstick rather than on its own.

So those were my thoughts on this month’s Beauty Plait. Was it a hit?

I think so – I loved 4/5 of the products – so of course it is a hit! My most fave products out of them all had to be the Milkshake Leave in Foam Conditioner and the EVAGARDEN Glaring Eye Shadow – I was so impressed by them!!

I cannot wait to see what the next box will bring in Beauty Plait!!

Have you guys tried the Beauty Plait? If that’s a yes, what did you think of the products? If that was a no, will you subscribe for the next box? Comment down below!!

Again, I would like to THANK Plait!! 

Thank you so much for reading!

Love Kezia

Vichy Ideal Soleil Anti-Sand SPF 50 – Review

Hi Everyone, 

I hope you are all having a lovely week and a great SUMMER! Here in Malta, it is boiling hot to the point that I get scared when I know that I will have to drive my car round 10 am until 5 pm! My car isn’t Malta Summer Friendly!

As Summer has fully arrived, the UV rays become more harmful to our skin. Therefore, we need to get our sun protection on! I have recently started using the Ideal Soleil Anti Sand sun cream from Vichy which has SPF 50.

Now I do not quite fancy sun creams or sunblocks – they are always so sticky (but it is very IMPORTANT that you apply it during the SUMMER TIME). And if you are like me and first you apply your makeup and then apply suns cream, then forget the time that you worked on your look, because it usually will get messed up by the sunblock.

However, recently I have been given the opportunity to try out the Ideal Soleil Anti Sand sun lotion from VICHY. I found that the product didn’t leave me with a  sticky feeling thanks to its non-sticky formula and just blended nicely into the skin. Which meant, that even though you may have put on some makeup before and then you would apply this product after – it wouldn’t leave you all patchy and white! It blends ever so nicely into the skin, even with makeup on!

A little information about the product –

Like I said it has SPF50 and protects us from UVA and UVB rays. It has a ‘sensorial texture’ which helps in the product being gentler and more effective on the skin. Also. this lotion may be applied on any skin type including sensitive skin. It is Paraben free and Hypoallergenic.

It includes Vichy Mineralising Water, which is a water-resistant formula that helps in keeping the skin moisturised and hydrated. It also protects the skin from becoming damaged by the sun’s rays.

It has a ‘lightweight texture’ that helps the skin in absorbing it without leaving a ‘greasy residue.’ This products also entails to be an Anti-Sand lotion as it has an ‘ultra-dry finish’ which helps the skin to easily brush sand off.

How to apply –

Simply apply this before being exposed to the sun. And then keep reapplying it frequently to maintain protection from the sun especially after swimming.

My thoughts – 

When using this product I found that it worked well with my skin. Like I said the product is easy to rub into the skin and it barely shows on the skin except for a little glimmer.

What I loved the most about the product was it’s unique Sun Lotion scent. As most sun creams have that common scent. However, this one had a lovely fresh scent to it.

When applying it to the skin it feels refreshing and hydrating. I also tried it at a sandy beach and was impressed by how little bits of sand stuck onto the skin. Therefore, this is a perfect product for those who DISLIKE any sand that gets stuck all over their bodies!

It protected me from the sun’s rays and didn’t leave me with that sticky-icky feeling! It has become my new BEST FRIEND for the beach!
