NEW The Longwear Lipstick Shades from 3INA!

Hi everyone, 

Happy Friday! I hope you are all doing great. Here in Scotland a storm is just making itself comfortable. I have been stuck in me little room, scared of going outside! But it’s ok because I have a NEW blog post for you all!

(These photos were taken in Malta, hence the sun)

Today is all about the new Longwear Lipstick shades from 3INA. I would like to thank 3INA Malta and Hudson Group Malta for these lovely lipsticks! 3INA is an animal cruelty free and paraben free brand, they have a variety of products and each come in every shade you can imagine!

The Longwear Lipstick formula provides us with a creamy application that leaves a gorgeous matte finish. I love the way the lipsticks dry on the lips, they are not sticky or drying and feel so lightweight on the lips. Nonetheless, they last all day and the shades I have here today are perfect to end the Winter season with your lips popping an amazing colour!

They also come with an amazing applicator that allows us to have a smooth and easy application. I have been loving these type of flat applicators right now! And just one last note before I tell you which shade is my favourite, I LOVE their smell, they just smell so sweet! I promise I am not lying!

My favourite is shade 520, it kind of also reminds me that Spring is right round the corner and I cannot wait to see if I can ever change me wardrobe here in Scotland. I know that if I were in Malta I would be preparing my crop tops and off the shoulder floral tops right about now! But I doubt I would be wearing those clothes any sooner in Scotland.

Anyways, here are the swatches of each the shades.

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?

MUA New Velvet Lip Lacquer Shades – Review & Swatches!!

Hi everyone, 

I am so excited to share with you all today’s video! As you know I am a big fan of MUA – Makeup Academy.

They sell such good quality products, a variety of products and they are all so inexpensive!

Today’s video is all about 5 new shades from their Velvet Lip Lacquer range that they had released last Autumn.

The Velvet Lip Lacquer range include a variety of products. I also recently purchased two more which aren’t in this video. But maybe I could do a haul of what other new products I purchased from them recently!

11.jpg

The formula of these lipsticks dries to a complete matte look and doesn’t have a strong scent. They however, do not last that long although this varies with colours. Another distinction is that some colours  – mostly darker ones – are extremely patchy so you have to be careful on how you apply them.

Also, it was my first time trying a blue lipstick and I have mixed feelings about it! It also took the longest to dry as the others dried quickly.

The shades are – 

Posie – A cute light nude brown shade

img_5908

Hustle – A dark pink/red shade

23.jpeg

Firecracker – A fun pinky red

2342

Splash – A not too dark or not too light blue – just in between – shade

fsg

Flair – A vampy red

Have you ever tried this range? What’s your favourite shade? 

Thank you so much for reading !!

October Lip Monthly Bag

 

Hi Makeup Lovers,

How are you all doing?

Before I start my blog post about what I received in my October Lip Monthly bag I just would like to update you on the new Lip Monthly as they updated their website and subscription service.

They do not ship to Malta anymore if you were to join them now. At the time being they are only accepting NEW subscribers from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany and Spain. You will only receive the bag if you live in other countries if you were previously subscribed with them.

However, now free shipping is not going to be done anymore but you will need to pay a shipping fee. I only know that for England the shipping fee will be $3.99 plus the bag itself which is $12.95 and even for me that is how much I am going to be paying.

Personally I am going to try it out for another month and will decide then if I shall keep the subscription or not. In the bag you only receive 4 items. Three of them will be dedicated to the lips whilst the other will be the bonus item that can either be for your hair, face, hands and anything else.

The October bag came in the cutest of fall-y bags. I actually love the design and the colours.

img_5616
Rio

We got a lip gloss from Cargo Cosmetics in the shade Rio. This is the only product I highly disliked in the bag. Why? Because it is a gloss that does not scream autumn/fall for me. It is a bright orange tanned shade and it is a gloss. I don’t like glosses, but that is just me! This gloss retails for $16.

img_5665
Charmed

The next thing we have is a gorgeous smoked orange/brown toned lipstick called Charmed from be a bombshell. Now see this is more my kind of colour during these cold and cosy months. The lipstick formula itself is matte although it does have some shine to it. And it is quite long lasting. There is no scent whatsoever. This retails for $6.

img_5718

img_5719

img_5617
Brick

My favourite lip product in this bag had to be the lip liner from Laritzy. The shade (Brick) of it was perfect and it was like a dark red shade. I love the way I lined and filled in my lips. It retails for $18.

img_5621
Lip Combo

In the video which I will be embedding below you will also see how the lip liner and lipstick also worked so well together and you can create a gorgeous lip shade with them both applied.

The final product was the bonus item which was a baked highlighter in the shade Sunkist. This was from DLS (Dirty Little Secret). It has gold glitter specs to it and I personally feel that I would like it more as an eyeshadow than a highlight. It retails for $14.

Therefore, the retail value of the bag is $54.

Is the bag worth it?

I guess for the products you get and the price you pay it is worth it. But I would have to choose the Sweet Sparkle box over the Lip Monthly bag. As in Sweet Sparkle you get more product for the price you pay.

Here is a video I made showing how the products tested out. 

Have you ever tried out the Lip Monthly bag? Do you want to try it out? 

Thank you so much for reading. Hope you have a lovely week!

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!

Love you all!

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

$1 QIBEST LIQUID LIPSTICKS from EBAY

Hi Lip Lovers,

How are you all doing?

I am super excited to share with you these new lip faves of mine!

They are the QI BEST LIP SERIES LIQUID LIPSTICKS. You can purchase yours through ebay.com and I am sure you can find them through aliexpress.com too. But I bought mine from ebay!!!

These are 2 links you can check the upcoming lip products out –

http://www.ebay.com/itm/HU-SU-Waterpr…

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Beauty-Waterp…

I like the formula of this liquid lipstick. The smell of them, some are good but some are sort of chemically. This is a Chinese Brand so it is no replica of any kind.

For the price it actually does a great job. The lipsticks are pigmented however, there are certain colours like the bright pinks and dark reds that are patchy. So, you have to be extra careful when applying those and just try to work with them so you can get the best possible pay out of the lipstick.

In my opinion you should give them a try. One of my most favourites shades is shade number 18 (as they don’t have names but are each given a number). It is a mauve purple shade!

The lipsticks do dry completely to a matte finish even though on the tube it says lip gloss. It certainly is NOT a lip gloss but a MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK!

LA GIRL Matte Pigment Glosses – Review + Lip Swatches

Hi everyone!! 

It is soon EASTER! So I wish you all a HAPPY EASTER!!! To you and all your family. Hope you will all have a beautiful one full of love and joy!

Last Wednesday I uploaded my video and of course I wanted to share it on here  too.

It was another lip product review. This time on the LA GIRL matte pigment glosses.

I ordered mine off EBAY and they are at such great prices! ($4)

I bought five in all and I love them all.

I feel that they stay on for a long time however you do need to reapply them especially if you are going to eat!

They do feel a bit drying on the lips, however if you apply some moisturiser on your lips it should help.

The worst one to apply was Backstage as the rest were all easy to apply with just one layer.

However Backstage requires a number of layers to get the full affect of the colour.

They have a lovely matte finish in the end.

Here are the swatches:

Thank you so much for reading !!
