December Makeup Favourites

Hi everyone, 

So December is over and I am not going to repeat how quick it passed and how we cannot believe its 2017 already, as I am sure that I am not the only one who is aware of this!

I have loved so many products and have tried out so many new ones too.

img_6936

But the products I shall be mentioning are all products I have used throughout the month of December, ones that I love.

These are all makeup products.

Would you like to see a non makeup related blog post? Let me know in the comments down below!

My December 2016 Favourites are – 

The Beauty Treats Roses Eyeshadow Palette

img_6924

I received this palette in a Sweet Sparkle Box. I didn’t think I would still use this palette however I have and did!

img_6925

The shades are all so pretty and from the photo you could see which are my favourite! I love that dusty pink/red it is gorgeous especially loved using it during the Christmas Season! The shadows all blend well and even though there is fall out it is something I can deal with!

ELF Blush – Tickled Pink

This is a fave oldie I have had for years! I love this blush, it is so subtle and natural. I love adding it to an all natural makeup look, you know to just add colour to the face. I miss ordering from elf, it was such a good and reasonable brand. I really must check again to see if the shipping rates have lowered, but last time I checked they were sky high!

Max Factor Smooth Miracle Primer

img_6914

I love this Primer, I don’t really understand primers sometimes, but I can see that this does something! It really helps minimise my pores, reduces shine and creates a lovely base for my foundation and the rest of my makeup look!

Max Factor Miracle Match Blur & Nourish Foundation

IMG_6917.JPG

This goes hands in hands with the primer. I have tried the primer with other foundations, however I never tried this foundation with other primers. The primer as I said really sets a nice base, and the foundation settles so well with it. I love the coverage that it has, it also lasts long and yes there is some shine after a few hours, but nothing a little powder can even it out!

Rimmel London Clear Complexion Transparent Powder

img_6918

This is a monthly favourite. I used to love the Rimmel London stay matte powder however I now switched to this one. I feel this is less heavier and more gentle on the skin. I love setting my under eyes and eyelids as well with this powder. And who wouldn’t love it for its inexpensive price!

Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl Mascara

img_6919

This is an oldie too and I absolutely love it. The wand is just good enough to hit all them lashes! It doesn’t transfer on the lid and creates such nice volumed lashes!

City Color Highlight Trio Palette

img_6920

This highlight palette I have found myself to levitate to a lot recently. I also got this from my Sweet Sparkle box! So yes thanks to the Sweet Sparkle box I have found new items that I adore!

img_6921

As you can see from the photo I LOVE those 2 lightest shades, I like mixing them in together to create that natural highlight glow!

Milani Matte Lipstick in Naked

img_6929

I have been loving this lipstick for work, for running errands, going to appointments; basically for an everyday makeup look that is natural and quick! This just gives the right amount of pink shade to my lip. The formula is all matte and lasts for a while too. Yes of course you will need to reapply it after eating as it does brush off.

Essence XXXL Longlasting Velvet Matte Lipgloss in Silky Red

img_6926

This is such a cute lipstick. I actually got this at the Essence event I attended with my friend Christabel and she actually got two of these. She was so nice as to give me one and I thank her for that! The formula of this lipstick is so nice and creamy. Yes you need to reapply it constantly throughout the day as it is not long lasting however it gives the loveliest of shades. That pinky red! Also it smells like a vanilla cupcake!

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Point Zero

img_6927

This was one of the lipsticks Kathleen Lights made! I love this it is such a lovely dusty brown perfect for autumn/winter. I guess if you are used to pinks everyday, this would be different. The formula of the satin lips is amazing and lasts long too!

So those were my December favourites, what were yours? 

Thank you so much for reading!! 

Love Kezia

My Favourite Autumn Lipsticks

Hi everyone,

How are you all doing?

I currently am sick at home and so I decided to come here for a bit and write up a blog post on my latest video that was uploaded on Wednesday.

Firstly, I would like to say that this is a collab and it is with my friend Jodalys Marie – you can check out her channel right here –

https://www.youtube.com/user/MiissFashionista

And here is the video I made –

In this video, I am showing you my favourite autumn lipsticks. I picked ten as I had to set a number or the video would have lasted way longer!!

14923054_10209581196579404_1896109309_o

14971594_10209581193339323_1599922129_o

The first few shades are nudes/pinks/pink nudes. And then I continue to more darker shades.

The Lipsticks I love for fall are – 

14970990_10209581193259321_2054011673_o

Milani Matte Lipstick in Naked

img_5427

This shade is a cute pink nude shade. It is perfect for an everyday lipstick. The formula of these lipsticks are soft and opaque on the lips!!
Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip in Time Square

img_5500

As you already know, I love Colourpop’s Ultra Matte formula. I think they are just amazing and last for such a long time! This shade is a dusty nude and again you can wear this with nothing on the eyes, maybe some mascara and you are good to go!!
Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme in Honey

img_5428

Let me just say that they have an amazing smell, I swear like fairyfloss or bubble gum. I prefer this formula over the Colourpop’s Ultra Matte as they are less drying. However, they do not last as long as the Ultra matte ones. This shade is a nice dusty nude light brown with a dark pink undertone.
MAC Liptensity Driftwood

img_5429

I only have this one from the Liptensity line and I am glad I got this one because I could pull off this colour on a day to day basis. They are very glossy and creamy and apply well onto the lips.
Too Faced Melted Matte Replica in Sell Out

img_5432

Now this is a replica and I hope I will not be judged from wearing this. I got this off Aliexpress. Of course this is not as good as the original Too Faced lipsticks. I cannot compare as I do not own the real ones but I can only imagine that of course those would be much better.

However, I think for a replica it worked well. It dries down to a nice matte finish. And it comes in a cute everyday pink mauve shade.
Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Femme

img_5431

I of course had to include a purple in this video. What I like about this purple, is that it also has hints of mauve, grey and a dusty purple tone to it. I am horrible at explaining colour ranges but I am trying to get better at it!

As I always say, if the Colourpop Ultra Matte lip line bother you then I would go with the Satin ones.
MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer in Firecracker

img_5501

This is such a gorgeous red shade I probably will also use it for the Holiday season as it brings about that perfect holiday red.
MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer in Hustle

img_5435

This colour reminds me so much of fall and the brown leaves. It is like a warm nude brown shade. I love it!
Milani Matte Lipstick in Love

img_5436

Again, I love the formula of these lipsticks. This has slight purple undertones to it in addition to the red shade that it is.
Imagic Lipstick shade number 12

img_5437

I love this, lovely dark and deep vampy red. Perfect for these fall/autumn months!!

So I hope you enjoyed reading/watching what are my favourite autumn Lipsticks!!

theBalm Makeup Tutorial ft. Meet Matt(e) Trimony Eyeshadow Palette

Hi everyone, 

Hope you are all doing great!

Yesterday, I uploaded a new video and of course here I am writing up a blog post on it.

I finally uploaded a Makeup Tutorial, a video I hadn’t done in a while!

I used my new favourite matte Eyeshadow palette from theBalm cosmetics.

If you are Maltese like me, I ordered this palette off http://www.thebeautypixiestore.com if you want to go and have a look. They offer free shipping to all us Maltese out there!!! That’s great!!

Products used – 

img_4435

Maybelline Baby Skin Instant Pore Eraser
L’oreal Skin Perfection BB Cream in Fair

img_4440


L’oreal Infallible 24HR Matte Foundation in Rose Beige

I loved using this foundation during the Summer months! It did not feel drying on my skin! It gave me a lovely coverage one which I was happy with.
Maybelline Fit Me Concealer
Rimmel Match Perfection Silky Loose Face Powder
Elf Eyebrow Treat & Tame
Elf Eyeshadow Primer in Sultry Satin
Rimmel Clear Complexion Clarifying powder

I love this palette. I recently started using this and I find that the shades it includes are the basic shades one would use. They are easy to blend and have lovely pigmentation.
Shades Used:
Toffee/Caramel
Soft Light/ Douce Lumiere

img_4441
Milani Baked Blush in Berry Amore

I love using this blush, it is not a blush I would use every day as it is a bit on the pink side. But I loved interpreting it with this look. This again I ordered from the Maltese online shopping website.

img_4442

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Alyssa

I love the Ultra Satin formula from Colourpop. Alyssa is one of the shades from the Kathleen Lights collab she did with them and one of my favourite colours from that collaboration!!

Colourpop Haul/Review/Lip Swatches

Hi Lip Lovers,

How are you feeling?

Ah!!! It’s the first day of the month of SEPTEMBER!! Summer is nearly OVER!!!

Yesterday I uploaded a NEW video up on my youtube channel.

If you are not already subscribed to it, then what are you waiting for – head on over to http://www.youtube.com/KezziesCorner 

Recently I ordered from Colourpop as they now also do international shipping.

I have ordered twice from their website. Once using “Send On” which is a Maltese company from Maltapost – our national postal company.

What this basically does, is it has PO boxes in America, so you can order from those websites that do NOT ship to your country and first have it send them to these PO boxes then the company will ship them out to you.

I used that the first time, and the second time I used Colourpop’s shipping as it is now available to ship to Malta too.

However, when having it shipped directly here from Malta, I risked paying for customs as well as already having paid the shipping fee on their website which is $25 which is a lot. Unfortunately, I was selected to pay a custom fee of €7 too! Which is kind of ridiculous. When I ordered with Maltapost’s Send On I only had to pay €18 for shipping. As shipping in the US is free, so I did not have to pay any shipping to Colourpop but only the Send On service.

The only negative thing that I can think of coming from send on is that it takes longer to arrive. But if I had to do it again I think I would just opt to use send on. Of course the price of the shipping which you have to pay is determined by the weight of the package. So I had ordered six lipsticks and for those I only paid €18 shipping.

Anyways, enough post talk… here’s my video that I posted.

The products that I mentioned –

Ultra Glossy Lip – Finders Keepers

IMG_4520

This is a perfect natural gloss on my colour of my lips. It is not sticky which actually may make it not so long lasting. Therefore further applications of the gloss probably would be needed throughout the day.

But that does not bother me, as lip glosses are so easy to apply … if there is no wind brewing around!!!

Lippie Stix – Lumiere

IMG_4492

IMG_4519

I love the Lippie Stix formula. If you think that the matte lips are way too drying then I would choose these instead.

I love the finish that it gives, it runs smooth on my lips and makes me feel as though my lips are bare but in fact have a lippie stix on them! The packaging is super cute with a roll in to adjust the applicator.

The shade is a nice everyday pink shade.

Ultra Matte Lips – The formula of this collection is AMAZING. It is so long lasting and you can eat whatever you want because let me tell you – the product doesn’t come off! Yes it may get lighter at the centre of your lips but the overall colour will remain stuck on your lips!

It could be drying, so I recommend that you would apply a lip balm before using them to keep lips moisturized and prepare them for the Ultra Mattes!

Lumiere 2

IMG_4493

IMG_4522 (1)

This is a lovely deep pink toned shade. It is a little dark.

StingRaye

IMG_4494

IMG_4522

This has been stopped and I don’t know the exact reason why. It was a collaboration with Raye Raye who is a famous youtuber !! I love her and have been watching her videos for years now!

This shade is a deep nude/brown.

Beeper

IMG_4497

IMG_4524

This can be seen as a dupe for Dolce K from the Kylie Lip Kits. Gorgeous everyday dark nude shade.

Bad Habit

IMG_4498

IMG_4525

This is such a fun shade! Hints of pink and red to it! Perfect for a nice formal event!

More Better

IMG_4501

IMG_4526

This one is slightly darker to the previous shade. It is more on the side of the pink and purples! Perfect for a night out!!

I really hope like my blog post and/or video!

Thank you so much for reading and following my blog!

Love you all!

August 2016 Favourites

Hi everyone, 

Hope you are all having a lovely week!

Today’s video that was uploaded is about my August Favourites of 2016.

I tried to include a variety of items that I use on a daily basis. And in the end I also included a favourite book of mine that I read this past month and 2 TV shows that I am hooked on watching!!

Here is my video – 

The products mentioned in this video:

Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Shampoo
Herbal Essences Ignite My Colour Conditioner

IMG_4339

I think the Shampoos and Conditioners from Herbal Essence are lovely products and leave your hair not only smelling like strawberries but also leaves your hair feeling smooth and healthy.

Makeup Revolution Pro Base Blur Primer

IMG_4344

This is a good primer to start off your makeup. It is a good base and helps decrease those nasty pores from being seen. It may not hide them completely but it does decrease them.
L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24HR Foundation in Rose beige

IMG_4341

I have been loving this foundation this summer! It has been one of my favourites as it makes me believe that my face actually looks flawless! And that is saying a lot from me who has acne scares and pores galore!
ZOEVA Defined Buffer Brush N. 103

I loved applying my l’Oreal foundation with this brush. I think it blends out foundations really well especially if they are creamy and liquid-y!
Rimmel Clear Complexion Clarifying Powder in Transparent

IMG_4345

I have replaced my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder for this one! I think it is just a perfect, lightweight powder to set all your makeup.
Milani Illuminating Face Powder in Amber Nectar

IMG_4337

I love using this as my blush as it contains different shades that when blended together make a perfect natural blushed look.
MUA Mosaic Bronzer in Sunkissed Glow

IMG_4335

Again this has different browns all blended together which can give you that natural bronzed looking effect that we all crave during these hot summer months!
BH Cosmetics HD Brow Pencil in Blonde

IMG_4372

I absolutely love this brow pencil! It is by far the best out of all my eyebrow products in my collection. It just fills your brows in the most natural and perfect way ever. It is also a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hill HD Brow Whiz!
BH Cosmetics, Illuminate by Ashley Tisdale Eyeshadow Palette in Night Goddess

IMG_4342IMG_4343

I have been using this palette all throughout these summer months and have been loving the palette. Even though this includes a blush, contour and highlight shade; they are not my favourite. However, the eyeshadow shades are super pigmented, easy to blend and are not too powder-y!
My Favourite Eyeshadow shades are Wild Child and Moon Light ❤ mixed together they are super sweet!
Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl Mascara

IMG_4347

This mascara besides coming from the brand called essence which is an animal cruelty free brand is an amazing product! The wand of the brush allows you to hit all your lashes from left to right! It is not clumpy and gives your lashes volume and length.
LIPS:

IMG_4350 (1)

IMG_4376

As you know I am an LIP LOVER!! So of course I could not just choose one lip shade ! Now I already did my favourite top ten lipsticks during the summer but I wanted to give 5 more a shot to star in my videos/blog posts!!

My favourite recently were: 

IMG_4357
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Abu Dhabi – perfect nude!!

IMG_4365
Colourpop Ultra Matte Lip Color in Lumiere 2 – lovely dark mauve-y pink shade!

IMG_4367
MAC Brooke Candy Liquid Lipstick in Plumful – EBAY replica – lovely pink purple shade!

IMG_4366
Milani Amore Matte Lip Cream in Precious – gorgeous everyday pink shade ! It is also the shade that I am wearing in the video!

IMG_4354
MUA Vivid Intense Lipstick in Punch – stunning deep red toned shade!

Favourite Book –

download
See Me by Nicholas Sparks

This book was amazing! Check out my video to see what I have to say about it!

Favourite TV show –

pll-poster
Pretty Little Liars

Guilt-Promotional-guilt-tv-series-39700477-600-336.jpg
Guilt

These were my favourite TV Shows and again if you want to hear what I said about these 2 TV shows just watch my video 🙂

I hope you enjoyed my blog post & youtube video!

Hope you all have a WONDERFUL week!

My favourite Summer Lippies

Hi Lip lovers, 

It is another lip-tastic post!!

I am quite the collector of lip products and so I decided on sharing with you my favourite summer lipstick shades.

I initially had decided that I would only pick 5 lipsticks however, I failed miserably at that! And I ended up picking … 10!!!

Here is the video –

The first of the bunch is a LIP GLOSS! I know shocking! I hardly ever wear lip gloss but ever since Ashley Tisdale released her very own line I couldn’t resist!!

Her line is called Illuminate and you can purchase any of her products on BH Cosmetics. My favourite shade for the summer months is BONFIRE.

ashley

IMG_3955

The second shade is Wild Watermelon from Revlon. It just screams summer to me !

IMG_3956

The third shade is another lipstick. This time it is from the brand MUA. This is one of their latest releases from their – VIVID LIPSTICK LINE – called Red Alert.

IMG_3957.jpg

The fourth lip shade is one of my first mattes that I ever owned! This is from ELF and it is from the Studio Matte Lip Color Range. My favourite for summer is in the shade called Fuchsia.

elf

IMG_3958.jpg

The fifth shade is a liquid lipstick. Now as a DISCLAIMER I would like to let you all know – as I also included in this in my video – this lipstick is a REPLICA. I bought this off ebay and I was aware that it would not be real. However, because I tried the product and I actually liked it I wanted to share it with you all.

Now I know there will be others who would disagree with me because I use replica makeup but everyone is entitled to their own opinions. And my opinion on the matter is that I actually like how the product turns on my lips.

It is not drying whatsoever nor is it sticky. It does not have any bad chemical smells. Now I know the ingredients I can never find out what it really includes. But just be aware that there are famous brands that nonetheless use harmful chemicals too.

Anyways my favourite shade for the summer is another liquid lipstick this time from Dose of Colours in the shade BARE WITH ME. I had to include a nude.

dose

IMG_3962

The next shade is a favourite of mine and even the formula is AMAZING! That being NYX from their soft matte lip cream line. This time in the shade MILAN.

nyx

IMG_3963

As you can see I love pink in summer!! Now moving on from pink, I had to include an orange coral sort of shade. And I chose MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer in the shade ZEST. This screams summer to me!

mua2

IMG_3967.jpg

The next shade is one that I am obsessed it with. Again this is a replica but it is amazing nonetheless. I love its matte effect that it leaves and it is a perfect orange red toned shade. This is from Mac Retro Liquid Lipstick in Feels so Grand.

mac

IMG_3971.jpg

The ninth shade is from MUA and this time its from again a new range called the Inked Lip Stain in the shade Watermelon. This honestly feels so refreshing on my lips!

And let me tell you, it does leave a lip stain on your lips that no matter if you use and scrub on a makeup wipe to try and take it off it will remain there. You can see my struggle by watching my video!!

mua

IMG_3972

(The swatch I have here is not a true swatch as I did not really leave it to dry so it would be a lip stain. You could see how it really stained my lips on my video)

Now for the final shade I chose Panda from Colourpop from their Ultra Satin Lip. Now because of Watermelon – my previous lip shade – panda came off a little patchy. But I am sure it was because of the stain drama I had on before!!

I had to include a purple here even though purple is usually associated with the winter and cold months. But I love purple nonetheless, be it winter or summer!!

colourpop

IMG_3975.jpg

So there you have it, my favourite summer lip shades!

I really hope you liked my blog post and video !!

Thank you for supporting me both on my blog and on my youtube channel – I truly appreciate it !!

Have a lovely Sunday.

Love Kezia
