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 – https://www.facebook.com/KezziesCorner/posts/1136505859850828

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!

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!

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_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 –

Review – NEW Rimmel London Products

Hi everyone, 

Cannot believe that today marks the final day of 2017!! I wish you all the best for the New Year and be safe for this evening’s festivities!! Thank you to everyone who has supported me, without you all KezziesCorner wouldn’t be the same!! Love you all!!

IMG_3099 2

Today’s blog post is all about some NEW products from Rimmel London. I would like to thank Rimmel London Malta and Vivian Corporation for the products and the cute little makeup bag!

I tested them out whilst creating a NYE makeup look. You could watch the tutorial (which includes only RIMMEL products) right here –

The products that I tested out where the following –

IMG_3113

Rimmel Magnif’eyes Smoke Edition Palette

IMG_3106

This eyeshadow palette comes with 12 different shades. It’s a palette for those of you who are wanting a smokey shadowed look. I love how the palette includes lots of shimmer shades. The palette also comes with a double-ended applicator. I loved using the brush for my inner corner highlight.

IMG_3105

I found the shades to be very pigmented, very smooth and quite blendable together. The colours are intense and the shades are crease proof and smear proof. The shadows lasted all day and I wet the shimmer shadows to intensify their effect and they worked out perfectly!

IMG_2951
The look I created using this palette

All in all it’s a cute little palette to have in your collection, perfect for a beginner starting in makeup and wants to enhance their smokey shadow looks.

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Firestarter

IMG_3107

I have tried these lipsticks before and also wrote a little review on them which you can read here

However, I can add that I LOVE this shade, it’s a perfect red in the perfect formula. It lasts all day and doesn’t transfer onto your chin whilst eating as it dries down completely matte.

IMG_3108

It is also not a drying formula at all and it is very creamy! There are other different shades from this liquid lipstick line like nudes, pinks and a plum shade too! I really recommend these liquid lipsticks as I think they are one of the best ones found at the drugstore.

Rimmel Lip Art Lip Top Coat in Blush Gold

IMG_3109

I love the concept of this lip topper. I applied this shade – Blush Gold – after Firestarter dried down. I applied it to the centre of my lips and then blended it out using my fingertips. I love the effect it gave and it is a perfect lip topper for the holidays!!

IMG_3110

It isn’t sticky at all and it feels so lightweight! Love the effect it gave and it also made my lips look more plump!

And those were the NEW products I tried out thanks to Rimmel London Malta and Vivian Corporation.

I really liked the two lip products and using them with the Smoke Edition Palette helped me create a NYE makeup look perfect for this evening. What do you guys think? Comment down below and also tell me what you will be doing on New Year’s Eve! 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! 

Thank you so much for reading!!

TESTING OUT bornprettystore.com Cosmetics + 10% Discount Code

Hi everyone, 

Hope you are all having a LOVELY DAY!!

Today’s blog post is all about bornprettystore cosmetics. This is a website which sells a variety of products such as makeup, jewellery, mobile phone covers and other things! The shipping does take a while so be patient if you do order. However, the website is very user friendly and they have great customer service!

I am also sharing a 10% discount code you could use in checkout on all original priced items. The discount code is – KEZZH10.

18120569_10211197879715472_845397538_o

I would like to thank bornprettystore for giving me this opportunity of testing out 5 items. Here is me trying them out on video –

18110210_10211197879755473_983590763_o

Here is a further review on the products –
Fan Brush

18052359_10211197903556068_1863801926_o

I love this brush, it feels so soft on the skin. It also blends the highlight nicely on my skin. This is a great highlight brush on a budget.

Lip Balm 

18111226_10211197901356013_276613983_o

I simply love the packaging of this lip balm it is just too cute! It simply refreshes the lips just a little bit but doesn’t really moisturise them all that well.

 Matte Liquid Lipstick Shade Number 36 

This may be a little dry on the lips even though I applied the moisturising lip balm which should have helped it to make it less dry. But ignoring that aside, it is a lovely matte lipstick.

The shade is a gorgeous dark plum and purple shade and it isn’t patchy. It is quite long lasting, just needs a retouch after eating!

Eyeshadow Palette Number 4  

18110991_10211197902636045_236520547_o

There are better drugstore eyeshadow palettes out there. Even though I created a good enough look I still think it isn’t that worth it.

I also damped my eyeshadow flat brush to apply a shade all around my eye base which helped in enhancing the eyeshadow shade. The shadows are quite powdery and they aren’t that pigmented.

Fake Eyelashes 

18083603_10211197901916027_1470136463_o

Now I am not a big fan of eye lashes simply because I am not that good at applying them! I applied these with my Ardell lash glue and the lashes applied nicely. They looked natural with my real lashes and I have used them multiple times since the video.

I really recommend these lashes however, they were a little bit too big for my eye shape but all you simply need to do is trim to your length.

 

Have you ever ordered from this website? Have you ever tried out any of these products? If so, then comment down below! 

If not, what are your thoughts on this website and these products? I would love to hear from you guys!

Thank you so much for reading!
