January Makeup Favourites!!

Hi everyone, 

So January is over … like how is that possible? I will be trying to do these makeup videos once a month, however I will ask you guys on my social media if you wish to see them before filming the video!! Or else I can do a blog post instead! Anyways, enough rambles and let’s get on with the blog post!

In this month I kind of started using some new things, however I also kept using some old products too that I loved throughout 2017!

#1 – 3INA – The Fixing Spray

IMG_3416

I love using this Spray to set my makeup after having applied it! It just sets so nicely and makes my skin look even better! The only thing I don’t like about is that sometimes the pump is faulty and produces more water than a nice spritz! Also, it has a lovely smell to it!

#2 – PS… Primer Water

IMG_3415

This is a product from Primark and their makeup. I have seen quite a bit of other youtubers mention this in their primark haul. So when I came back to Scotland after my christmas break I went ahead and bought it. I love spraying this on my face before applying any makeup or even on a no makeup day I still spray it. It hydrates my skin and makes it look glow-y!

#3 – Pixi Skin Treats – Rose Flash Balm Instant Skin Booster

IMG_3403

This is such a great product. I would like to thank Pixi Beauty UK for it! It is a 3 in 1 product as you can use it as a moisturiser, mask or primer! I love using it as a primer mostly, it decreases my pores and creates a nice base. When I applied it as a mask I had a lot of redness and my skin felt sticky.

#4 – Makeup Revolution – I Heart Makeup Chocolate Orange Eyeshadow Palette

This is one of the newest releases from Makeup Revolution. I love their palettes, their great quality, some are dupes of other high end brands and they also come in a cheaper price! The colour selection of this palette is great to create a number of looks and I see myself using this in a Valentine’s Day makeup look!

#5 – Colourpop – All I see is Magic Eyeshadow Palette

I thought the palette would be slightly bigger so be aware guys as the size of the palette on the website may fool you! The colour selection in this palette varies and I just love it! The quality of these shadows are amazing and super blendable!

#6 – Max Factor – Healthy Skin Harmony Miracle Foundation – Light Ivory with SPF 20

IMG_3424

One of the newest foundations from Max Factor and I just love it! I love using it to create simple everyday makeup looks but even for a night out its great! It lasts long and is really lightweight! It just makes your skin look flawless!

#7 – Collection – Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer

IMG_3439

This is such a great concealer to highlight and brighten under your eyes! And for the price it is even more amazing! There is a foundation of Collection alongside this concealer that isn’t my cup of tea but this concealer is just great and it is a favourite of mine from 2017!

#8 – PS….Insta Girl Rice Powder

IMG_3422

This is another Primark product and it is just so impressive! I love baking with this, it just sets my concealer so nicely without creasing. It is a loose powder to set makeup and it also helps in absorbing oils.

#9 – Soap and Glory – Archery Eyebrow pencil

IMG_3437

I love this brow pencil to fill in my brows! It also helps me fill them in so easily! I just love it and again this came with me from 2017!

#10 – Max Factor – Natural Brow Gel

IMG_3428

You have heard me mention this product in a number of videos/blog posts! I just love using this to set my brows! It’s my number one setting brow gel!

#11 – Essence Super Last eyeliner in deep black

IMG_3427

This eyeliner creates such a rich and thick black line! It is great for creating that cat wing look and it doesn’t transfer and dries down so fast!!!

#12 – Milani illuminating face powder in Amber Nectar

IMG_3418

I love using this to add some colour to my pale face. When I don’t want to bronze or contour my face I love using this to give me a natural pink colour to my skin.

#13 – H&M Bronzing Powder

IMG_3423

This is a great natural bronzing powder. I love using it on everyday makeup looks, I just think that it leaves me with a nice bronzed face which isn’t too much!

#14 – Rimmel Wonderfully Real Mascara with Keratin

IMG_3419

This mascara is great as it also has Keratin, so it is helping your lashes too! You should be careful of this mascara because it can be a bit too liquidy and can transfer! But it creates nice volume and length.

#15 – L’Oreal Paradise Extatic Mascara

IMG_3436

I absolutely love the effect that this mascara gives to your lashes. It enhances them, lengthens and volumises them. It can get a bit clumpy but overall it is a great product!

#16 – Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighter in Liquid Starlight

This is a buildable highlight, you can create the tiniest of highlights but use more and you’ll have the shiniest highlight beam out there! The liquid highlighters come in a number of colours so be sure to check that collection out!

#17 – NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm

I love the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. Their formula is just the best, very lightweight and not drying. And this shade in Stockholm is just super pretty especially for a natural makeup look!

#18 – Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipstick in shade 03 Wow Effect

IMG_3440

I just love this lipstick, both the formula and the colour choice is great. I love wearing this when I am going for a more natural makeup look!

#19 – Golden Rose Long-lasting Liquid Lipstick in shade 18

Best red in the entire collection and one of my favourite reds that I have in my lip collection! I just love the formula of these lip sticks and they have a tonne of shades so be sure to check them out!

#20 – Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte lipstick in Nude

This shade is gorgeous, it’s darker to the Stockholm shade mentioned before. I love the packaging of these lipsticks and they are just amazing! Not too drying or sticky, and last all day!!

#21 – Essence Matt Matt Matt longlasting lipgloss in Shade 11 Drama Club

If you are looking for a gorgeous plum shade then try this out! The formula of these lipsticks can sometimes be a hit or miss depending on the shade. This can be a bit patchy but you can work your way around it!

#22 – Essence soft contouring lip liner in shade 09 going steady

This is a great lip liner, so smooth and it glides on nicely. And the shade is great and mauvey!

#23 – Sand and Sky Purifying Pink Clay Mask

I have done a separate blog post about this so you can check it out by CLICKING HERE. But this mask is great for people who have acne or had too and still have acne scars. It also helps in reducing the appearance of pores!

Essence Autumn/Winter 2017 Collection!

Hi everyone, 

I am coming with a very exciting blog post all about the upcoming Essence Autumn/Winter 2017 collection! 

Screen Shot 2017-07-16 at 18.30.48.png

Here are some of the products that you will be seeing on the Essence stands in the coming Autumn/Winter months!! I am only mentioning the products that intrigued me as the collection will include many other products that I have not written about in this blog post!

Also I have NOT tried out the products yet as these haven’t been released yet! But I hope to be able to pick some up when the products will be released and will hopefully come back and update you on how the products tested out!

Disclaimer – Last but not least Pictures are all thanks to Cosnova Beauty as I am on the Blogger Distribution List. 

Metal shock eyeshadow

Creamy, highly pigmented eyeshadows that will light up the eyes with a fascinating metallic look. Colours with glitter particles will also be available. There will be 7 different shades and I am so excited to get my hands on these!

Here is a little sneak peak of some of the shades –

The Rain or Shine Eye & Face palette & The Superpower! Eye & Face palette

The two “eye & face” palettes will be coming in a cool metal box. The “rain or shine” version will have holographic pastel shades while the “Superpower!” palette will unite light, colourful shades.

The Superlast Eyeliner

ess_Superlast_Eyeliner_matt-black_opend.jpg
‘In Matt Black’

This eyeliner will be focusing on long durability. Essence wrote that, “with a hybrid of silicon and flock applicator, the eyeliner can be applied with just one stroke”.

There will be 3 different eyeliners in this formula – Matt Black, Deep Black and Waterproof

Cannot wait to test this out!

Three NEW Mascaras!!

As you know I LOVE Essence mascaras!! They will be releasing 3 new mascaras!

Screen Shot 2017-07-16 at 17.49.14

1 – The Instant Volume Boost Mascara (smudge-proof and intense black)

The intensive black mascara will allow for maximum lash volume. The volume brush will consist of flower-shaped fibers. Application will just take ten seconds!

2 – The Instant Volume Boost Mascara (smudge-proof and waterproof)

This will provide us with lots of volume that will last all day and is waterproof, too!

3 – The #Lashes of the Day Super Volume Mascara

essence #lashes of the day super volume mascara

This will help us achieve perfectly curled lashes for a gorgeous look. Also, what cute packaging!!

Superlast 24h Eye Brow Pomade Pencil

 

 

essence superlast 24h eyebrow pomade pencil waterproof 10

In the Shade Blonde

It is said to be waterproof, creamy and it will be a twistable eye brow pomade pencil to shape and emphasise the brows. This will come with an integrated sharpener and silicon brush.

Brow Marker

essence brow marker 10
Blondie

I have never ever seen anything like this. This will be a, ‘cool eyebrow pen with a text marker look.’ It will be longlasting (on the marker it says ‘semi permanent’!) thanks to its tint effect, so it will accentuate the brows accurately and intensively.

Correct to Perfect CC Multi-benefit Pearls

essence correct to perfect cc multi-benefit pearls 10

These multi-functional pearls will help even out any skin irregularities and ensure a flawless skin tone. I never tried anything like this so I am curious how this product will test out!

Strobing & Contouring Palette

ess_Strobing-Contouring-Palette.jpg

Essence will be releasing this contouring palette! It will include TEN creamy shades that you will be able contour or highlight with.

Brighten up! Banana Powder

essence brighten up! banana powder 10

This will be a, “translucent, mattifying powder” which will come in a very soft yellow; and is ideal for the “concealer baking” technique, or for setting “matt highlights”.

The Fresh & Fit Awake Primer

essence fresh & fit awake primer

You will be able to use this either solo or with foundation underneath. It will come with a light texture  with light-reflecting pigments which will ensure a smoother, fresher complexion and will help extend the durability of make-up. It includes vitamins and cranberry water.

The Fresh & Fit Awake Make-up 

essence fresh & fit awake make up 10
In Fresh Ivory

“Enriched with a vitamin complex and cranberry water”, the foundation “wakes up” the skin and will give it a healthy look. It will include delicate light reflecting pigments that will ensure a smooth complexion with a fresh touch. It will come in 4 shades.

Holo Rainbow Nail Polish

Five new nail polishes will be released with a holographic look and glitter particles! I would love to try these out!

Vibrant Shock Lip Paint

Cool colours like blue, pink and grey with velvety-matt results and a non-sticky texture. Here is a sneak peak of 3 of the 6 upcoming shades!

The Ultra Last Instant Colour Lipstick

I love ESSENCE lipsticks, their matte range is amazing!! This lipstick range will have 20 NEW shades. The lipstick will come with a creamy texture is longlasting and won’t dry out the lips.

Super Beauty Sponge

essence super beauty sponge

With its unique shape, the sponge is said to be ideal for the application of powder, foundation, primer, blush and cream – even in those hard-to-reach areas. Am curious to try this out and see whether my beauty blender will be replaced by this one!

Time to Clean Face Cleansing Brush

essence time to clean face cleansing brush

The brush will come with soft bristles, and will help in gently removing make-up and cleansing the skin down to the pores – for a natural, fresh face. I would love to test this out!!

I hope you enjoyed this post and are getting excited for the upcoming items from Essence!!

Something really simple to do.

I love simple looks, meaning without any false lashes, not too much contour and just the right amount of highlight. That’s my style.

Huge London Makeup Haul

Before I start this blog post I would like to remind everyone that I live in Malta. Therefore, stores like Urban Decay, Benefit, Makeup Forever and Huda are not found here where I live.

That is why I ended up buying quite a handful because I wanted to make sure that some stuff on my wishlist which is usually hard to order from Malta, I bought whilst I was in London.

I don’t do this type of shopping on a regular basis, so when I found myself in London surrounded by all these amazing stores, I splurged and I guess treated myself.

Anywho’s if you have not realised this blog post is going to be about my latest Youtube video found on my channel – http://www.youtube.com/KezziesCorner

It shows you what I got whilst I was in London back in December. But I also included an order I had made on Feelunique a few days before as there was a good sale going around.

So I put everything in one not to do two haul videos after one another!!

screen-shot-2016-11-16-at-22-05-15

I have had time to try out these products. So whilst giving swatches in the video I also gave a mini review.

So be sure to check out my video if you would like to know more about the product. As what I am going to be writing in this blog post may just be a sentence or two on the products.

Here is the video – 

The products that were mentioned – 

  • Benefit Porefessional Primer

img_5275

I have been wanting this primer in forever! I am so happy I got it and let me just say I only use this when I need to cover up my pores like crazy. I do not want to use this on a day to day basis or whenever I come to apply my makeup.

Besides it being an expensive primer, for me it is more difficult to get so I have to take care of this baby and make it last for a really long time !!

  • Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation

This foundation is perfect! It gives you a nice coverage and is a very nice foundation to have on your skin. It does not feel heavy or cakey whatsoever.

  • Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Spray

I actually have not tried out this spray yet as I am using another one.

  • Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer

I have tried this concealer with the foundation and it really does cover dark circles under your eyes or any blemishes. I love this and finds that it settles down nicely with the foundation.
 

  • HUDA Lip Contour – Icon

This is a gorgeous shade and perfect for fall! I love it !

  • HUDA Beauty Liquid Matte – Bombshell

I did not like the shade at first, but then grew to love it. The formula of it is so amazing and not drying at all!!

img_5296

  • Kiko 30 Days Extension Mascara

I have tried this but not stuck with it. So I cannot say if it works or not. I should finish the 30 days and so I should start again and see if I can finish my task!!

  • Kiko Long Eyes Active Mascara

I love this, it gives you natural looking long lashes.

  • Kiko Extra Sculpt Waterproof Mascara

This gives you the extra volume, and is my favourite between the 2 kiko Mascara that I tried so far!

img_5295

  • Vichy Purete Thermale waterproof eye makeup remover

This eye makeup remover works so well and removes all your eye makeup !! So you will not be waking up looking like a PANDA !!

  • Boots Hair Tangle Teezer

I love my hair detangler !! Love using it in the shower to spread out my conditioner and love using it after I come out of the shower to remove any knots!!

  • Sleek Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip creams – Fired Up, Vino Tinto, Birthday Suit, Petal and Velvet Slipper

img_5287

This formula of liquid lipsticks is very creamy. Even though it is not long lasting it is one of my favourite formulas nonetheless.

If you would like to see all the swatches of the shades please watch the video!

If you would like me to do a lip swatch video, let me know in the comments down below!!

  • Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks – Nude Flush

I love this shade, such a natural everyday pink.

  • Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

I have been wanting this mascara in forever as I see so many bloggers using this! And I love the result it gives, not clumpy, doesn’t transfer on the lids and gives great results!

img_5273

  • Real Techniques Blending Sponge

I bought this as a backup as I already use one. I love it especially for blending out the concealer.

  • Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin 24 HR Foundation

Even though I bought mine in the wrong shade it still settles nicely on the skin and gives great coverage!

img_5289

  • Makeup Forever HD Foundation

I love love this foundation. Between the All Nighter by Urban Decay and this, now that I have tried both equally I love them equally. They have similar finished results in my opinion!!

img_5274

  • Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer

I love this concealer. So many of these products were influneced by Kathleen Lights for me to buy !! And she was right about this one !! I love it as an under eye brightener!

  • Revlon Colorstay Makeup Foundation Normal to Dry Skin

Have not tried this out yet, but have had another one before. And I used to love it and only wear it for special occasions as it has full coverage.

img_5288

  • Rimmel Fresher Skin Breathable Natural Finish Foundation

When applying this it truly feels so refreshing on your skin. Very light coverage, perfect for a natural look.

  • Rimmel Clear Clarifying Powder

This was a backup, so because of that you all know that I love it! And it was super cheap on feelunique !!

  • Rimmel Fix & Perfect Makeup Primer

I have done a review about this primer on my blog. So if you want to check it out click here.

  • Rimmel Day to Night Mascara

I love the mascara and love the idea of having two wands!!

  • Rimmel Volume Colorist Mascara

Beautiful mascara but sometimes it clumps my lashes together.

  • Rimmel Scandal Eyes Thick & Thin Eye Liner

I don’t quite like this, it is uneven and not a lot of product comes out.

img_5276

  • theBalm Marylou Manizer Highlight

I saw all the hype on this so of course when I saw it at Superdrug I had to get it! And I love it! I feel that it is not chalky, and gives a lovely highlight. It blends very well too.

img_5280

  • Mac Lipstick – Lustering

Cute pink shade !!

  • Mac Lipliner – Soar

Love this as a fall shade and love the lip liner formula of Mac. Again if you would like to see swatches please watch my video !!

img_5285

So that is it!! Hope this wasn’t that long!!

Thank you so much for reading !!

Lookbook – Beanie Wonderland !!! NEW VIDEO

Hey guys, 

I am so excited to share with you my new video!!

I had been thinking about doing this video in such a long time but I wanted to make it perfect!!

It shows you guys ALL my beanies that I own – I cannot believe I own so many!!

I started collecting beanies I think about 3 or 4 years ago and love wearing them in winter.

In fact since I am working, I miss the feeling of just putting on a beanie and going to work. Because I cannot wear most of them to work but whenever I get the opportunity to wear a beanie I would.

I hope you like my video – don’t forget to give it a thumbs up if you like it!!

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

Here are some photos I took:
