Golden Rose – HD Foundation & The Diamond Breeze Collection

Hi Lovelies, 

How are we all doing? I hope you are having an amazing weekend!!

Today’s blog post is all about Golden Rose and some of their new products as well as one of their latest collections – the Diamond Breeze Collection!

IMG_5334

I would like to thank Beauty Cosmos Malta for the products! If you are from Malta, you can purchase Golden Rose Cosmetics from Beauty Cosmos found in Fgura! You could also visit their website by CLICKING HERE to see their products as well as order online (This feature is available worldwide!).

Here is a video showing you how the products that I will be mentioning in this post test out –

Products mentioned and a little about them –

IMG_5377

HD Foundation

This HD foundation is just amazing! it offers High Coverage as it is a high definition soft focus foundation. It also helps provide a flawless finish and has SPF 15! It retails for €14.25 and comes in a variety of shades!

I tested it out for a whole day and found that by the end of the day my face was slightly oily so I needed to mattify it with a setting powder to set everything in place! But overall am happy with this foundation and as you saw in my video I loved how it immediately covered my red spots so well!

HD Concealer

Like the foundation this concealer also has SPF 15 which I find to be so interesting! I don’t think I had ever had a concealer with SPF or if I did, I never noticed! This concealer retails for €7.50 and helps create a soft focus effect under the eye because of its unique formula which diffuses light to brighten the skin, soften and blur the look of fine lines and imperfections and gives a smooth finish to the skin!

Once I applied the concealer, it blended and covered my under eyes well but it did crease a little! I wish that it didn’t come packaged with a sponge where you have to click for the concealer to come out like a pen but other than that I quite like this product!

Diamond Breeze Liquid Eyeshadow

IMG_5339

The shades I tried were 24k Gold and Iconic Copper which is a lovely dusty red! These retail for €6.50 each and come in other shades! I love how they are so pigmented and dry up fast reducing the chances of it transferring above your lids! And if you saw my video they blended nicely into each other. Their great pigments to create a lovely metallic look! The Iconic Copper shade really gives me Autumn vibes so cannot wait to add it to an autumn look of mine with other shadows!

Diamond Breeze Shimmering Eye pencil

IMG_5378

The pencil that I tried was in the shade Bronze Sparkle which was a lovely deep gold shade and these retail for €5.50 each! I applied this on my waterline and it applied well even brightening up my eyes!

Diamond Breeze Glitter Top Coat Mascara in 24K Gold

IMG_5342

I never tried glitter mascara until now! It retails for €7 and I first applied normal black mascara and then I topped up my lashes with this gorgeous glitter mascara! You can see in my video how the glitters do actually transfer on my lashes! I was worried because of the glitters getting into my eyes throughout the day but that was not the case and it was easily removed at night!

Diamond Breeze Shimmering Highlight

IMG_5338

I tried the highlight in the shade called Champagne and this retails for €7.50. I loved this highlight and thought it blended into my skin easily and smoothly! It did not intensify my pores on my cheeks and was happy with how it looked! It made my skin glow-y just like I liked it!

Diamond Breeze Shimmering Lip Topper

IMG_5341

I love these lip toppers which are like lip glosses. I tried the shades Golden Nude and Nude Sparkle, both had speckles of glitter! They retail for €6.50 each! I loved Nude Sparkle on its own rather than applying on top of another lipstick. I love their scent as well, it reminds me of the same scents they have on their golden rose matte liquid lipsticks! I love the description they give on the website for this, to make your lips shine like a diamond, love that!

Left to Right – 24k Gold and Russet Sparkle

Plum Sparkle

This set of lipsticks all come with glitter speckles and I tried the shades Plum Sparkle, Russet Sparkle and 24K Gold. I think 24K Gold would look lovely on top of a dark purple matte lipstick applying the gold lipstick on the centre (sidenote for future makeup look during the winter months!!) I love the plum sparkle shade and they have a hyper shimmering finish! These retail for €6.50 each !!

Diamond Breeze Shimmering Body Glow 

40483851_513776992383934_7912416312943443968_n.jpg

This shimmering body glow adds gold glitters to your skin! It is very creamy and has a light texture and can be easily applied and dries quickly! I noticed how it blends so nicely into the skin, giving you a glow-y look! This retails for €11!

Diamond Breeze Shimmering Nail Colour – Russet Sparkle

IMG_5335

I also received a nail polish and have tried it out, it is a gorgeous orange shade perfect for the autumn months!

Here was the finished look I created using these products!

My Favourite Summer Lipsticks

Hi everyone, 

Apologies for not writing the blog posts I promised last week! I guess dissertation stress is taking over! But I want to continue uploading regularly, be it on my blog or my youtube channel. When I am having a bad day, I just love sitting down at my vanity and apply makeup, it is just my sort of therapy to help me relax and get back at thinking more positively.

Anyways, going away from the deep talk as Eyal does on Love Island (Who watches the reality show??), today’s blog post is about my favourite summer lipsticks! I shared a video where I showed you swatches of my choices. So you could either watch that or read this blog post … or do both!!

In summer I love wearing bolder and brighter lipstick colours. I wear less makeup yes but that doesn’t stop me from wearing a vibrant lip shade! My top 10 choices cover pink nudes to fun reds and oranges to a stunning hot pink and even a purple shade. Play around with colours, step out of your comfort zone and have fun with makeup!!

Here were my choices –

Golden Rose Cosmetics – The Metals Collection

Hi everyone!

I know I haven’t written a blog post in a while but I was back home for Christmas and then once I came back to Stirling I needed time to adjust and I have some visitors with me so am trying to show them a good time in Scotland!

Screen Shot 2018-01-18 at 21.17.15

Nonetheless, here I am today with a blog post on Golden Rose Cosmetics. I would like to thank Beauty Cosmos Malta for the products and for giving me yet another opportunity to try out the products!

If you are Maltese like me you can purchase Golden Rose Cosmetics from Beauty Cosmos which is found in Fgura. You can visit their facebook page for more information.

Screen Shot 2018-01-18 at 20.35.23

The products I am reviewing for you guys today are found in the Metals Collection. I uploaded a video on Wednesday testing out all the products. You can watch it right here –

The products that I tried out are the following – 

Golden Rose Lip & Blush Velvet Touch – Shade 02

Using the Lip & Blush Velvet Touch as a blush and a lipstick!

This is a lovely lipstick and blush all in one. I loved applying it as a blush as it gives the cheek a natural pinky look. And it also blended nicely on the skin with my fingertips. I also liked applying it as a lipstick, it is very lightweight on the lips! It retails for €8.50.

Golden Rose Metals Matte Metallic Lip Crayon – Shade 02 and Shade 05

I loved these metallic lip crayons especially the one in shade 05! They are so easy to apply and so moisturising on the lips! I loved applying them on their own however, I also loved the look of them applied on a liquid lipstick. They retail at €6.50 each

Golden Rose Smart Lips Moisturising Lipstick – Shade 04 and Shade 12

These are again so fast and easy to apply. They are so soft and moisturising on the lips and have great colour pay off! If you are looking for that non drying lip product, I highly recommend this line of lipsticks! They retail at €7 each.

Golden Rose Metals Liquid Glow Highlighter – Shade 04 Sunlight 

IMG_3089

Using the highlight!

This is such a lightweight highlight. It blends nicely on the skin and creates a subtle glow. If you want a more intense highlight this may not be the one for you however it is quite buildable. But if you are like me I enjoy a more natural glow! This retails at €7.50.

Golden Rose Metals Metallic Liquid Eyeshadow – Shade 105 Mink 

IMG_3092

I liked using this all over my eye lid, it just makes your eye look pop even more. I found that blending it with my fingertips worked well. i just loved the effect it gave to my look.

Testing Out NEW Golden Rose Makeup Products

Hi everyone, 

How’s it going? Here is my first ever video taken in my new little room back in Scotland. How am I adjusting you might say? Well, not bad actually. I am loving the greenery, the fresh air and well maybe not the weather but all in all, I am doing ok!

Today’s blog post is all about some new GOLDEN ROSE products that were gifted to me from Beauty Cosmos Malta which is a cute shop filled with a variety of Golden Rose makeup products in Fgura. Definitely give it a visit if you would like to try out some of these products.

The products mentioned were – 

Screen Shot 2017-10-05 at 17.11.20

CC Cream Color Correcting Primer in Violet and Yellow – €14.75

IMG_1901

The yellow primer is for correcting and neutralising purple/blue tones and correcting any redness on your skin. It prepares your base for a flawless makeup application.  I personally love this over the Violet one as my skin has quite a bit of redness going to it!

The violet primer neutralises dull yellow undertones and it’s good for medium skin tones and again prepares the base for a flawless makeup application.

Both primers help in smoothing, evening and brightening skin tones and hiding dullness and dark spots. I think they do a perfect job in hiding any imperfections you have got going on also.

They contain a Pure Moisturiser Complex and Vitamin E. They also have SPF 30 which is perfect for your skin and no parabens are added. They can be used alone or under foundation. 

Contour Kabuki Brush €11.00

IMG_1902

The brush is designed in the shape of a S shape and that means it is perfect to sculpt and contour with. It helped me quite a bit as I am no master of the contour technique.

It blended out the shades perfectly and the shape helps me figure out where is it that I need to place my contour!

Stylist Duo Liner 2 in 1 Eyeliner Pen €8.50

IMG_1906

This eyeliner pen has two tips that allow for the perfect liner look! Both sides are pigmented and are deep black. The pen is said to be smudge proof and made up of a longwear liquid formula.

IMG_1913

I have used this pen with both sides multiple times and I love it! It lasts all day and just glides on so smoothly. It has a semi-matte finish and it is enriched with Aloe Vera and Vitamins.

Both the tips allow for the perfect liner look.

IMG_1904

The thin tip in the Tulip Shape is made of a flexible felt-tip in the shape of a tulip and it allows for an easy application.

IMG_1905

The ball tip which has a round shape is a flexible felt tip in the shape of a ball and this shape allows for an easy classic eyeliner look, perfect for beginners.

I first use the Thin Tip and then go over it with the ball tip to finalise my look and to make sure that the line is straight.

Smokey Lashes Mascara – Defining Volume and Intensely Black €7.50

IMG_1909

This mascara is said to add volume and fullness to the lashes. However, I believe that it lengthens them mostly and separates them ever so evenly.

IMG_1910

It is smudge proof and has a quick dry formula with a unique soft fiber brush.

Soft Kiss Lip Marker Flocky Tip  – Kiss Proof and smudge proof with Vitamin E and Aloe Vera – Shade 01, 05 – €8.50

I love how most of these products have vitamins and Aloe Vera!! Now I must say that I am not a fan of lip markers in general. These ones provide us with a lip stain that when applied feels so refreshing on the lips and lasts so long. I love shade 05, it has a such a cute rich red shade!

What I also like about these is that you could use these lip markers before applying regular lipsticks or lipglosses to make them last longer!

Matte Lip Crayon Shade 23 and 25 – €6.25

I love these matte lip crayons. They are so easy and creamy to apply. Shade 23 is such a gorgeous red shade, perfect for the Christmas time!

I really recommend these if you are like me and love matte lipsticks!

Have you ever tried any of these products? Comment down below!!

I would like to thank Beauty Cosmos Malta once again for these products!!!

Favourite Spring Lipsticks 2017

Hi lip lovers, 

As you may know I am crazy about lip products! So if you have been following my Youtube channel and blog for a while you would know that I always do my favourite seasonal lipsticks!

And as Spring has just rolled in I had to do my Favourite Spring Lipsticks. However, this video was a collab with Daisy Taveras. You should really visit and support her channel as she does amazing makeup videos!!

My top 10 lipstick picks for this season are –

MAC Amplified Lipstick – Fast Play

IMG_8207fast play 1

I love this as it has such a lovely pink and creamy finish! Perfect lipstick for an everyday Spring Makeup Look!
Sleek Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream – Birthday Suit

IMG_8215birthday suit 1

This is such a gorgeous pink shade! I absolutely love this and the formula from Sleek!
Max Factor Velvet Matte Lipstick – Blush

IMG_8206blush 1

This is such a gorgeous fun pink to wear. It isn’t light or bright but just in between! I love the formula of these lipsticks too – they are so moisturising!
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Prague

IMG_8210prague 1

I love the Soft Matte Lip Cream’s from NYX! And this is quite similar to the shade Blush from before. However, this shade is more matte than the other and it is slightly darker!
Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Lipstick – Summer Lovin’

IMG_8211summer lovin' 1

This is an out there kinda’ pink!!! Something that is bold and fun to wear! Reminds me of Nicki Minaj! Nonetheless, you can rock this on a night out makeup look.
(EBAY DUPE) Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick – Double Date

IMG_8212double date

Even though this is a dupe it is still a pretty shade. I had to reapply it a couple of times to get the finished look. But then it settles nicely on the lips!
Essence Matt Matt Matt Longlasting Lipgloss – Shade 5

IMG_8213shade 5 1

This is such a gorgeous pinky red! I love the way it settles on the lips and it isn’t all that matte but has a slight sheen to it.
Milani Amore Matte Lip Cream – Amore

IMG_8214amore 1

I love the scent of these formula lipsticks! This pink red shade is just GORGEOUS! Wear some eyeliner and mascara and add this, and you’re good to go!
MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer – Sizzle

IMG_8216sizzle 1

This is a lovely burnt orange shade. I guess orange is a more autumnal colour however I like this for spring as it isn’t dark!
Golden Rose Liquid Lipstick – Shade 8

IMG_8208shade 8 1

This again is a lovely pink shade – very fun and bright!

What is your favourite spring shade? Comment down below !!

♡ Golden Rose Liquid Lipsticks Lip Swatches – Ladymakeup.eu – 10% Discount Code

Hi everyone,

It’s WEDNESDAY!! Which means I have a NEW VIDEO for you all!! And I am so excited to be sharing this video with you all as it was one of my favourites to film.

As you know I LOVE lip products and so here is a LIP SWATCH VIDEO showing you all 12 SHADES from the brand called GOLDEN ROSE!

I would like to personally thank Ladymakeup.eu for giving me the opportunity to review these products for all my followers!!

I also would like to add that ladymakeup.eu is an online makeup shop which holds a lot of different drugstore brands from ELF, Makeup Revolution, MUA, Real Techniques, Sleek, NYX and many more!

They even ship to MALTA which is great, however they do charge a shipping fee!

They even gave me a discount code for all my followers to use!

Use – Kezia10 – at checkout and get 10% off your order!!

So anyways going back to the lipsticks I have never tried anything from Golden Rose so I was excited to try out these new lip products. They are called the Longlasting Liquid Lipsticks which are Matte and Kissproof!!

A basic summary – I tried 12 shades however on the ladymakeup.eu website there are 5 NEW SHADES!

There are a lot of pinks mostly and I simply love them! They have a scent and their formula is very creamy. They remind me a lot of the Milani Amore Matte Lip Cremes.

They are very soft to the lips and not drying! They are quite long lasting however, if you are anticipating a snack or food I would recommend you keeping it in your bag to reapply!

In the video you will see me testing out whether or not they are kiss proof by kissing the back of my hand. And let me tell you they are however they have to completely dry down to a matte finish or else there would be SOME transfer!

They also don’t take that long to dry!

The sad thing is that they are not named and only have a shade number given to each one!

Here are a closer look to the 12 shades! 

And here is the video – 

Have you ever visited the ladymakeup.eu website?

Have you ever tried these lipsticks? Do you like Golden Rose?

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

Happy mid week!!
