Blogmas Day 2 – First Christmas Giveaway

Hi everyone,

How are you all doing? How have you been settling into a new month?

Today was a busy day and then I got a little confused with some changes in my day. I am a planner, so when things change from my plan of the day, it takes me some time to adjust and adapt to these changes happening. Something I might need to work on … next year though, far too tired for this year!

Anyways, as I said today’s post would slightly be more Christmas-sy!! And so here it is!!

Each year during the month of December I am so thankful as I get to collaborate with some of my favourite brands of the year and together we produce some lovely giveaways for you all! I just wish to give back something to a community who supports me everyday! I am so grateful for the corner I have built and I feel blessed each day! Thank you so much for supporting me on whichever social media platform, so here is something small to thank you!

The first giveaway is with a shop called Beauty Cosmos which is found in Fgura, I love working with this store! If you want to participate either visit my INSTAGRAM or FACEBOOK PAGE for more info and of course to participate!!!

And stay tuned on my social media and youtube channel for more surprises to come!!

For today, that will be all. I am exhausted and I think I am going to get cosy and watch a tv show, might watch an episode of For Life. Who watches that show? Absolutely love it and cannot wait to watch this episode as a big shift was made in the show!!

I hope you all had a good day, I wish you all to take care, stay safe and have a good rest of day, or a good night!

Love Kezia


Blogmas Day 2 – Cranberries & Chocolate Palette – Review

Hi everyone, 

How are you all doing? Are you excited to see more of Blogmas? I thank everyone who has checked out Blogmas Day 1 already, and for those of you who are just joining me on Day 2 … WELCOME!! 

Today’s blogmas is all about an eyeshadow palette I recently received in the I Heart Chocolate Vault from Makeup Revolution. I had done a video on this box, you can check it out RIGHT HERE. And basically, in this box you will find this palette. However, I now know that you can buy this palette separately too! 

I have done a video showing you exactly how the palette tested out and what not, but since I am doing a blog post a day, I will include the videos I upload on my Youtube Channel as part and parcel of my Blogmas … you know what I am saying? 

Also, my first XMAS giveaway went up on my fb page, you can check it out right here –

My thoughts on the Cranberries and Chocolate Palette – 

I love the packaging of the Chocolate palettes, and I love the shade this one comes in! I think it’s a very christmas-sy colour, so this palette is perfect for a blog post, don’t you agree? I also like how the shadows come with names and you get a great sized mirror!

The palette has a mixture of shimmers and mattes. It also has this gorgeous black shade called Rich which is perfect for that smokey eye. It also has this beautiful dark pink/berry shade called Wine which is a great shade for the crease and a berry look! Which is like the look I did in my video! 

The matte shadows worked out well and are so pigmented and blend nicely even with each other. Yet the shimmer shades I had to work with them more. Number one I cannot use them without wetting my brush. Example Tasteful worked well all over the lid applying it with a flat brush which was wet. Yet gratification which is the white shimmer shade didn’t go on as pigmented as i would have hoped in my inner corner even though my brush was wet. 

So I wish the shimmer shades worked out better but apart from that, I love this palette. It’s a perfect autumn/winter palette with a variety of brown, pink, shimmer shades and even a dark brown and black! And if you’re looking for an inexpensive palette to create a berry toned look or a brown toned too you can use this for those looks!!

The makeup look I created using this palette!

Here is my video if you would like to see how it tested out – 

Thank you so much for reading!! Have you tried this palette out or are you interested in doing so? Let me know in the comments down below!!

Happy Blogmas Day 2!
