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?
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!!
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!!
I haven’t written a blog post in a while and I miss writing on here. However, I have been regularly posting on my other social media sites such as my Instagram, Facebook and Youtube. So if you miss me and do not know that I have these channels too, would love it if you could support me there too!
Today’s blog post is about some products I received while attending a launch hosted by Korres Malta. It was the cutest decorated launch I had ever attended, hosted at VIlla Arrigo. I met some other talented people and we all enjoyed a lovely presentation by Stephanie Briffa who is the brand manager of Korres here in Malta. Korres have recently landed in Malta and can be found at Remedies pharmacies in Ta’ Xbiex, Birkirkara, Mellieħa, Sliema (OPENING SOON) and Siggiewi. As well as from Central Pharmacy in Rabat and St.Andrew’s Pharmacy in Swieqi.
We were given a back story of the brand and how it came to be developed and then we were introduced to the new collection – the Wild Rose Collection. Wild Rose oil offers antioxidant, moisturising and softening properties. And in combination with Vitamin C, helps repair fine lines and pigmentation while improving the overall texture of the skin.
I am so grateful to have been invited to an event and then to also receive three of there products from their Wild Rose Collection! And since the event I have adopted these products into my skincare routine and have so far used them for 2 weeks. And now here I am writing a blog post on how I felt these products have helped my skin since I started using them!
I love the packaging on all three products, it is just so beautiful, luxurious and I like how they look in my bathroom.
Brightening & First Wrinkles Day Cream – Normal/Combination skin –
First off I would like to say that besides this cream product coming out for normal to combination skin, they also have one for oily skin or dry skin. I LOVE the smell of this day cream, it just smells so lovely and is nice to use early in the morning as you are about to start off your day.
I apply this after having moisturised and I only use it in the morning (Apparently this is a moisturiser in itself so yeah you don’t have to moisturise before using this product). It offers 24 hour hydration, brightening and first wrinkles. It has a water cream texture that blends nicely into the skin. This cream besides containing Wild Rose oil, also has Vitamin C, turmeric extract and hyaluronic acid which helps improve the signs of premature ageing and evens skin tone to reveal smoother, younger looking skin.
Brightening & First Wrinkles Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial –
I use this everyday at night and again after having moisturised. It’s a lightweight cream that offers hydration and helps even skin tone with its corn powder that helps to absorb oiliness which results into a nice matte finish.
This is a sleeping face mask sort of that helps your skin be brighter by morning.
15% Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Bi-phase Booster –
I use this everyday in the morning and evening before moisturising and I apply 3 drops – 2 on either cheek and one on my forehead and rub it in. It is an intensive brightening and anti-fatigue skin care product that has a potent 15% Super Vitamin C brightening bi-phase booster to improve the appearance of first wrinkles, dark spots and dullness. The Vitamin C and Wild Rose oil helps in reducing signs of premature ageing and fatigue to reveal spotless skin.
Research showed that 94% of women who used this for 7 days claimed that they noticed improved skin’s overall appearance.
My thoughts ….
So I have combination skin and sensitive skin. These products did not cause any breakouts nor were there any bad reactions from having used them. As I wrote, I have only used them for 2 weeks and have not missed a day where I didn’t use all three of them.
I do find my skin to have gotten softer and brighter and in the mornings after having added these products in my routine. I noticed how the Brightening & First Wrinkles Advanced Repair Sleeping Facial, resulted to waking up with less dull looking skin. I think the most noticeable thing I also have noted is how smooth my skin always feels now which is a super positive from me.
As you can see when taking the photo i had quite a large spot and this is completely due to the fact that it’s my time of the month next week and I always notice a spot or two as that time approaches! But other than that annoying spot, I haven’t had much breakouts which I am super happy about! I hope that as I continue using it, it only will keep my skin smooth and soft. The issue with my skin that annoys me the most are my acne scars but these products are not associated with helping them and am still on the hunt with something to help decrease my scars! (If you know of anything please do leave me your replies in the comments down below!!)
So overall, do I recommend these products? If you are looking for products to help your skin be healthier, smoother, softer and brighter then yes I recommend them! For me, these were the results I noticed!
Have you guys ever tried out skincare products from Korres? Let me know in the comments down below!!
I hope you enjoyed my post, thank you so much for reading and for your support!!
How are you all doing? I hope everyone is having an amazing week!!
Today I am bringing you a blog post all about Sudio!Sudio is a company that sells a variety of earphones! I am not that person who understands in earphones but I can say that from now on if I or anybody I know is looking for a pair of new earphones, I will definitely recommend Sudio!
Sudio are a Swedish company which provide products with good sound! There are several earphone styles with different names likes – Nivå, Regent, Klar, Tre, Vasa Blåand some others! They not only come in these different styles but also provide us with a cute colour range for everyone! You can visit – https://www.sudio.com – to view all their styles and get more information!
I am so grateful to Sudio for allowing me to collaborate with them a few times and I wanted to come here and give you my thoughts on three of their styles! Sudio have also provided me with a discount code for you guys! Simply enter ‘KezziesCorner” and get 15% off your order from www.sudio.com!
Their postage is fast and their packaging is so well done! I always love how they arrive! Also, at the moment they have an offer that with every purchase they are giving away 4 coasters which are aesthetically pleasing! They also have FREE WORLDWIDE shipping!
All earphones are so easy to use and connect in the same way. You will always find three buttons, 2 for playback or sound adjustment and the one in the middle you press and hold until the button starts flashing blue which means it’s on and red it is ready to connect! They also turn off when not being used!
I love the colour these come in and I never owned wireless headphones with a microphone in them! I found this so amazing and out of this world haha … yes I am a little late to the party! The microphone is really good and the sound quality for me is great! They also connect to your phone or laptop through bluetooth, and like all Sudio’s earphones are compatible with iOS and Android! They also are so good to use whilst exercising!
I find these comfortable to wear and they last long after being charged! These come in 4 other colours however, at the moment they only have the rose gold black and blue in stock apart from the rose gold white! I also love that they come with the cutest case to keep them in!
These are unlike any other earphones I have tried! They have a charging pack which you put them inside to charge! You instead charge the charging pack rather than charge the earphones themselves! These come in 3 other shades however, white and pastel pink besides the black ones are the one in stock at the moment!
These also come with a microphone! I know right, fascinating!! I find them comfortable, however, I am constantly worried they will fall out! I actually passed these on to my boyfriend who is in love with them!
These are my favourites and they are my babies! I use them to edit my videos and listen to music! I just love them! They are wireless, they are so sleek and cute in photos and they also come in black! There ear padding is so comfortable and they aren’t heavy and can adjust to your wanting. They have a play time of 24 hours plus so that’s perfect means that they don’t need a lot of charging!
They also come with interchangeable caps and one of them is the colour of the headphones and the other is in marble which I love!! There sound is amazing and microphone works so well!! I love them!!
Have you guys ever tried earphones from sudio? Are you interested in trying a pair out? Let me know in the comments down below! If you have any questions let me know or you can visit sudio’s website and contact them!!
Thank you so much for reading and for your amazing support!!
However, this time I tried out the Sweet Mint Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish! And I just want to say from the start, that I prefer this one than the other because this has such a sweet mint flavour!! I love it!! This is available for A LIMITED TIME ONLY!!
Before I start, I would like to thank Carbon Coco for sending this out to me for me to try out!! I really appreciate it!!
Let me tell you guys what it includes first!
This Sweet Mint Tooth Polish is just like the original with active charcoal which helps in naturally whitening your teeth. It absorbs stain-causing debris and bacteria and removes stains without any toxic ingredients! It also helps in providing good oral hygiene and prevents bad breath!! The only difference than the original one, is that it has an added sweet mint flavour to increase the fresh mouth feel!
How do you use it?
Step 1 – Wet your toothbrush and damp it lightly into the carbon coco jar and tap off the excess
Step 2 – Brush your teeth for three minutes (I always like doing a timer on me phone – fun fact you should be brushing your teeth for three minutes!!)
Step 3 – After brushing for three minutes, spit out and rinse all that carbon coco away!
Step 4 – Brush your teeth and for best results, use at night followed by Activated Charcoal Toothpaste!!
My thoughts …
In my opinion I LOVE this. It is such an easy, quick and natural way to whiten your teeth. I noticed results immediately however, your teeth will get whiter and whiter every time you use it. I like doing it 2 – 3 times a week at night before I go to sleep! I notice that when I rinse it out I am left with some bits in between my teeth but don’t worry those will be gone maybe not as soon as you rinse it off initially but by the next time I wash my teeth the bits are gone!!
One thing I struggle with is when the product gets fall in the sink when it comes to rinsing it off it kind of gets a little messy. But apart from that I love it and have loved incorporating Carbon Coco into my routine!!
What do you guys think? Have you tried this out or any other teeth whitening products? Let me know in the comments down below!!
Thank you so much for reading and thank you all for your support!!
How are we all doing? Hope you’re all having a lovely week!!
Today’s blog post is all about Born Pretty Store which is a website that sells a variety of makeup products at an amazing price range! I also have a 10% DISCOUNT CODEyou could use at checkout!! Simply enter KEZZH10 and you will get 10% off your order on all original priced items.
So these were the second pair of magnetic false eyelashes that I have ever tried and well I know you need patience with such items however, these I couldn’t get them to stay on properly!
This could be because my eye shape is slightly smaller and so they were larger than my actual eye. And unlike false eyelashes where you can trim them to fit your eye shape, with magnetic lashes you technically cannot because if you trim off one end, you’re essentially trimming of one of the magnets! Sorry, that sentence was long but it needed to be! In the end I just gave up and ditched these lashes!
Now I am not saying they aren’t good lashes, but for me they didn’t fit well. The quality of them is good however, the ones I tried from Iris Beauty were slightly more comfortable than these, these felt heavier! They retail for $3.99and come in different styles!
Hope you are all doing well. I am hoping to come out with 3 NEW blog posts this week! So stay tuned and make sure to be following my blog to get notification emails of when I post a new blog post!!
Today’s blog post is all about a brand called Freshly Cosmetics. They recently released their brand in the UK and they have lots of skincare goodies for you to try out! I got the opportunity to test out something from them and I received the Antiox Facial Plan. I am so grateful for this opportunity and I would like to thank Freshly Cosmeticsso much!
I just would like to say that I love the packaging from how it was sent to the packaging of the products themselves!
I have been trying it out for 2 weeks and am happy with the results. Though, I have some good and bad notes to write about this plan.
What I like about it is that it is a 4 simple step plan which basically cleans, purifies and moisturises your skin. The products are made in a way which are simply and easy to use.
#1 You first would start with the Fresh Green Micellar Water and I simply get a round cotton pad and apply it all over my face. You could also spray it throughout the day on your face, to freshen up your skin!
This product helps hydrate your skin and interestingly contains an anti-stress extract, so for those going through their final exams at uni maybe this would help you and your skin relax!
The thing I don’t like about it is the scent, it’s just such a strong scent and to smell it in the morning, it’s just too much.
#2 Then you would use the Purifying Facial Tonic which again has a strong scent but not as much as the Micellar Water. Again I apply this with a cotton pad. I guess yes you would need some cotton pads for this Antiox Facial Plan!
This product helps hydrate, refresh and get rid of dust accumulated through the air. It simply helps remove the impurities and honestly I do feel my skin to be cleaner and softer after using this product. However, I noticed that it did make my skin feel a little sticky but I don’t know if that’s a good or bad thing.
#3 The next product is something I never incorporated in my skincare routine and it is a Multi-Antioxidant Concentrate Serum. I loved applying this, reminded me of being in Science class and having a pipette! Just love that word!
I loved this, it brightened my skin and it gave it a glow! This serum helps to reduce, repair and prevent signs of ageing.
#4 The final product that you would use in this plan is the Multi-Antioxidant Facial Moisturiser. This can be easily applied evenly on your skin and you have to wait a minute or two so that the serum sets and absorbs before applying the moisturiser.
This moisturiser is a hydrating face cream that has antioxidants which helps hydrate your skin and again reduces skin stress.
This plan helps freshen,purifies and balances skin’s pH with lime, burdock and camomile extracts. Believe me the lime is noticeable. It helps with hydration and also includes vegan hyaluronic acid. It is dermatologically tested and suitable for all skin types including sensitive skin.
My final thoughts …
I noticed my skin to be brighter,fresher and had a lovely natural glow to it. However, I also noticed that as I was using these products both in the morning and in the evening, it was making my skin red. Therefore, I might have been having a reaction and so I only completed this plan for two weeks because it was too heavy for my skin and I have combination and sensitive skin.
I am now just using the serum as that was my favourite product from the entire plan and I am using it with my usual everyday skin routine.
They post to a lot of different countries. To my fellow Maltese followers, unfortunately they do not ship to Malta however, they do ship to England so you could use Send On or other ship it to services!
I hope you are all having an amazing day! Today’s blog post is a review on Iris Beauty. This brand is well known for their contact lenses. However, the products I am reviewing for you all today are all eye makeup products.
I would like to thank Iris Beauty for this opportunity to review their products. They also gave my lovely followers a 15% Discount Code! Simply enter kezia45 at checkout to get 15% off your next order.
I never tried magnetic lashes before until I tried out these. This concept is amazing, false lashes without the need to apply glue – such an amazing invention!! They are less messy to apply and connect together thanks to the magnets which are on the sides of the lashes. To see me apply the lashes watch my video on my Youtube Channel, I linked it down below!
I still need to keep practising on how to apply the magnetic lashes as I do not yet apply them well or quick. But I think there is room for improvement and with practice I will hope to get better.
The set I got were called the Flirtatious ones and they are just gorgeous and give a natural looking effect. I recommend these and if I ever get good at applying these I might be very happy to not have to apply glue with false lashes!
I love this eyebrow product and have been using it in my everyday makeup routine! This product is smudge proof, fade proof, waterproof and is long wearing. The tip of the pen makes it easier to fill in your brows and create any bold or wide or thin shapes that you desire.
What is interesting is that it has coconut oil which helps the formula! The shade I got is chocolate mousse but there are other shades that you can choose from!
This eyeliner is amazing. It is super pigmented, waterproof and dries down so fast! It is creamy, smooth, glides so easily and has a precision tip that helps with the application. This helps in creating a perfect cat eye!
It is available in three shades – a blue/brown/black. The one I got is the black one called Jet Black! A great pen eyeliner!
So these were my thoughts on these products. Here is the video I did showing you guys how exactly they test out! Hope you enjoy watching!
