May 2017 Makeup Favourites

Hi Makeup Lovers,

How are you all doing? June has arrived, and with June here Malta has gotten a lot of sun and a lot of heat.

IMG_9634

But since May has passed I thought why not do a blog post all about my May 2017 favourites. I have been trying out some of these products for a while now, some have been at me longer than others. But anyways, here we go …

#1 Benefit – The POREfessional Face Primer 

IMG_9647

So as you know, I attended Fashion Week in Malta last week,  and this basically saved me! It is quite a heavy formula and very creamy but it does the job of hiding those yucky pores I so hate!

#2 Urban Decay – All Nighter Liquid Foundation

IMG_9646

Yes, this is quite a heavy foundation, but I really like how it sits and stays on my skin. It has a high coverage formula and just blends on nicely. I love applying this foundation with my Beauty Blender.

#3 NYX HD Photogenic Concealer 

IMG_9644

I love this concealer and have it in 2 shades. The shade I had been using mostly in May was CW 04 – Beige. I love using this shade to cover up my blemishes and any redness I would be having!

#4 Rimmel – Match Perfection Loose Powder – Translucent 

IMG_9645

I love using this powder to bake my under eye concealer. It just sets it so nicely and doesn’t get creased throughout the day. Mine has been at me for a few months now and the tub has gotten all messy! So maybe if this was in a better form of packaging I would love it even more!

#5 Anastasia Beverly Hills – Nicole Gurriero Glow Kit

IMG_9639IMG_9640

I love this highlighting palette, I had saved up for it and was so happy once it had arrived. It includes six gorgeous shades, and wouldn’t change it for anything. When I am going out for a special occasion I always whip this out! My favourite shades are Glo Getter and Day Dream.

#6 Violet Voss – Holy Grail Eyeshadow Palette 

IMG_9641IMG_9642

This is the last makeup product I bought and for now will not be buying more… I hope. But I had been saving up for it for a while and I finally got it. I was either going to buy this one or the HUDA beauty one but decided for this one. The pigmentation of these shadows is amazing and they blend so nicely. I love the colour choice in this palette, you can create so many different looks!

However, I do have one sad thing to say – I thought the packaging would be more of high end quality, instead it is quite bulky and for the price you pay I was a little bit disappointed by the box.

#7 BH Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick – Glory

IMG_9648IMG_9650

This is the perfect red shade! I love it and I love the formula of the BH Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks. They literally last all day and they won’t go anywhere! In fact when removing them I turn into a clown because they really just stay there on the lips!

#8 Urban Decay – All Nighter Setting Spray

IMG_9643

Last week I needed my makeup to not run anywhere, I needed it to remain the way when I finished doing my makeup. And this is the product to keep any makeup going somewhere! I love this, it doesn’t have a scent and it settles nicely on the skin!

Those were my May 2017 favourites!

Have you tried any of these products? 

What were your May favourites? I would love to know!

April 2017 Favourites – Skincare, Hair products & Makeup

Hi beauty lovers, 

How are you all doing? Hope you are having a great start to the week!

IMG_8611

Yesterday, I released a BONUS video up on my channel and it was all about my April Favourites; ranging from hair products, skincare and makeup!

My April 2017 Favourites – 

IMG_8622

Tangle Teezer 

I love using this to untie my knots that seem to love my hair! I love using in this show before applying conditioner and before rinsing it off. This helps my hair in not getting too tangled after coming out of the shower!

TRESemme’ Salon Sleek Frizz Control Smooth Memory Spray

I love using this before straightening my hair and to keep my hair from frizzing after having had a shower!

IMG_8618

Arad Facial Cleansing Milk 

This has been my favourite product to use to remove my makeup! It literally takes off any makeup you could possibly use! It is so soft and gentle on the skin. You can click here to read an entire blog post all about this product!

Arad Mineral Facial Scrub

I have been using this in conjunction with my Vichy cleanser and have loved the combination. It really has helped my pores decrease in size and helped keep my face cleansed and clean. You can click here to read an entire blog post all about this product!

NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer

IMG_8638

I have been using this primer constantly this month – as in April! It helps keep my makeup last longer and also helps create a nice base before applying other makeup products! It also helps decrease the look of pores!

L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Foundation

IMG_8623

I have been wanting to buy this foundation for a while now and now having tried it I can say it was worth the wait and the money! I would say this a medium to full coverage – very buildable! I love how it sits on the skin – not cakey whatsoever!

Collection  Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer

IMG_8639

For the price it is amazing! One of my favourite concealers to highlight the bridge of my nose, my cupid’s bow and chin! And also to conceal under my eyes. It doesn’t crease and lasts all day!

Wycon Prime and Fine Powder

IMG_8640

This sets my foundation and concealer nicely. It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and the shade is perfect and blends well!

Milani Baked blush in Berry Amore 

I love this blush – it’s like a mix of orange, pink and gold altogether! It has tiny glitter speckles which adds to the intensity and glimmer of this blush! I also love the packaging of the baked blushes by Milani!

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

I have been wanting this product ever since I saw Kathleen Lights rave about it so many times! I ordered mine off ebay! I forgot to say in the video that it has an intense summer smell that makes you excited for beach and summer days. It just creates a natural and bronzed look. It is very light weight and not that intense – my favourite!

Sleek Precious Metals Highlight Palette 

The packaging is gorgeous and the highlights are amazing! My favourite shade is Antique Bronze which is a lovely gold cream highlight. Perfect for not pointing out your pores more as a powder highlight would!

Max Factor Natural Brow Styler

IMG_8636

I love this as it settles and tames my brows in place. It keeps them intact all throughout the day and dries clearly.

IMG_8634

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara

This mascara has been an old favourite of mine. It just separates and lengthens my lashes nicely. It also doesn’t transfer on eyelids.

Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara

Yes if you are doing a physical activity and you are wearing this – it may transfer on your eyelids. But it just lengthens and volumises the lashes ever so nicely!

Essence The Cushion Eyeliner

I had never used a cushion eyeliner before and let me just say this small pot really impressed me! It just creates a lovely intense black line!

Essence The Eyeliner Waterproof Pen

You can create a thick or bold line with this waterproof pen. It doesn’t move either! It is not patchy whatsoever although, as the day goes by it does become patchy and you might want to retouch it.

BH Cosmetics Illuminate by Ashley Tisdale- Beach Goddess Palette –

IMG_8616

This palette is just too cute. I love the shades they are all so natural and you can create different looks. My favourite shades from this palette are Fiji – a cream shade , Maui – a copper shade and St. Lucia – a bronze shade. The eyeshadows are also so pigmented and blend nicely together.

MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer – Sizzle

You know that I love these lipsticks! I also includes this shade in my Favourite Spring Lipsticks video and couldn’t resist but to include this in my April Favourites too! I love this shade – it is a beautiful orange/red shade! This one isn’t patchy whatsoever!

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip – Point Zero

I know that this doesn’t look like a spring shade but I loved wearing it this month and found myself reaching it for it more than I thought I would. The wand isn’t my favourite, but once applied I love the shade on my lips. It is like a brown/nude shade and has a bit of a satin shimmer finish. This was one of the collaborations Kathleen Lights did with Colourpop.

Favourite TV Show – 13 Reasons Why

Oh my god – if you haven’t seen this you really should! It is a Netflix TV Show made up of 13 episodes – 13 reasons why Hannah did what she did! It is a different story from what you normally see but worth watching because these things actually do happen and we need to have our eyes opened more!

Favourite Movie – Beauty and the Beast

This is such a cute movie. I normally do not like movies which have songs in them like musicals do. But I didn’t mind the songs in this movie! The costumes and the hair was amazing and I love the little cutlery dancing around the objects being animate. Watching this movie also brought back childhood memories of when I used to see the cartoon movie on tape!

What were your favourites of April 2017? Have you tried any of the above products?

My Favourite Winter Lipsticks

Hi everyone, 

How are you all doing? 

screen-shot-2017-02-15-at-20-52-44

I am so excited to be sharing with you this Youtube Video. As you know lip videos are my favourite ones to film. I have previously filmed my favourite seasonal lipsticks however, never did one for Winter until now!!

screen-shot-2017-02-15-at-20-52-51

So here are my favourite 10 lipsticks that are all reasonably priced as all of them are drugstore as I now have realised!!

MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer in Harmony

2

As you know I love the MUA Velvet Lip Lacquers. Even though they aren’t long last and need a constant re application especially when food or drink is involved, their range is great. They have so many shades in their collection including four new SPRING shades1!!

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Point Zero

1

This was one of the collaborations that Kathleen Lights did with Colourpop and of course I had to get my hands on it! I love the formula of their satin lips and this lip shade screams winter!! Kathleen also released a new set of three lipsticks with Colourpop called Aquarius Bundle!

Essence XXXL Longlasting Velvet Matte Lipgloss in Silky Red

6

The formula isn’t the best but the scent of this lipstick is AMAZING! I have only managed to get my hands on one of these shades from this range. I love the formula as it is very soft and creamy!

Focallure Matte Lips in Shade 03 Burnt Amber

5

I purchased these off Ebay and I love the range. They are a little patchy and a little bit sticky but when I apply some sort of lip moisturiser before hand it definitely helps!

3ina Lipstick Shade 102

8

3INA is a brand that we recently got in Malta, there are 3 branches and I love the shop and the way it is designed! I love their products, and they are well priced too! The only thing that I don’t like about this lipstick is the bullet is so annoying to apply with!

BH Cosmetics Bh Liquid Lipstick in Clara

3

I absolutely love the formula of these lipsticks! They dry to a matte perfect finish and they have the fastest drying formula that I have ever tried! They are also long lasting as well!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme in Copenhagen

9

I love the Soft Matte Lip Range from NYX  I think they have such a lovely range of shades! The scent that these lipsticks have is AMAZING!! I like this shade however you have to be so careful around it as it tends to get patchy!

HUDA Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Vixen – Ebay Replica

10

So I cannot lie and tell you that this is the original products but no it is a knock off from Ebay. And I was hesitant in trying these out but I did and actually like how the colour pay off truly is! They do have a scent to them not a chemically one as you would expect off ebay! They are a little patchy and need constant re application but apart from those factors I love this lipstick!

Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme in Magnetic

7

The Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme’s are by far my favourite liquid lipsticks! They have the sweetest scents from all these lipsticks I have mentioned! They are not that long lasting but are so soft and creamy! They apply so well and smoothly across the lips !! The applicator is helpful in creating a precise shape onto your lips!

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Dominatrix – Ebay Replica

4

Again, this is a knock off and yes I did not want to spend all that money on the real thing, and was I happy with my decision? YES!! I love it. It is a little bit drying but again applying some moisturiser or lip balm before applying this lipstick definitely helps!! I love the shade it’s sort of a dusty mauavey brown and pink mixed together!!

I hope  you enjoyed this post!

What was your favourite lipstick and lip shade?

Thank you so much for reading!! 

Happy Wednesday!!

Vlog #2 – The Week I got new candles !

Hi everyone, 

Yesterday I uploaded my second weekly vlog for 2017!

So far I am managing to keep up and am really enjoying the process of vlogging and editing my weekly vlog! I also love the idea of vlogging every day – this helps in keeping memories!

So here is what I was up to last week – 

Please stay tuned for an in depth post of the candles I bought tomorrow! And for all of you who are Maltese take part in my Giveaway on my facebook page! Click here!

Tomorrow no video will be uploaded onto my main channel as I feel that since I have uploaded quite a bit of videos this past week I wish to wait a bit until I release a new one!

A new video will be up on SUNDAY!! So stay tuned for that and a blog post tomorrow and hopefully another one on Thursday too!

I hope you all are having a lovely week! What were you up to last week? 

Thank you so much for reading my blog posts or watching my videos or both!

Love Kezia

Best Friend does my Voiceover Challenge!!

Everyone, it’s 2017!!! 

I hope you all had a lovely New Year’s! Mine went by in a blur! Literally it flew by, I didn’t realise how quick a day can pass when you are so tired from all the dancing that you did the night before!!

Anyway’s back on Saturday – the last day of 2016 – I uploaded a video and never got a chance to share it here on my blog. As I share every video I upload here on my blog I thought that this video couldn’t be the first one that I forget to share here!

Especially since it is a video that I will constantly watch even in years to come! I never did this before but in this video I was accompanied with Amy who is my best friend and I love her to bits! She even agreed to do this video with me and I am so grateful for her doing so, because not only did it come so good but I really enjoyed doing it with her as well!

Screen Shot 2017-01-02 at 12.12.57.png

So lately I have noticed this boyfriend/best friend does my makeup voiceover challenge and I thought that this would be a fun video to do and share with you guys! I really hope you enjoy watching it!

As a note please remember that we both did the script and she in by no means or ways did she say those things with an intention to hurt me but we both wrote the voiceover to be as funny as possible!!
