Pixi Pretties – Pixi X Chloe, Pixi X Weylie and Pixi X Dulce – Review

Hi Lovelies! 

I hope you are all doing well!! Today’s blog post is an exciting one! I cannot believe the package I received a few weeks ago! I never believed that I ever deserved such a package!

IMG_4827

IMG_4824

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!

IMG_4800
Blush Swatches

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_4802
The shadow swatches
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 –

IMG_4781

IMG_4782

So I would like to thank Pixi Beauty once again for the most amazing package I have ever received! I have no idea how I ever deserved such a package but THANK YOU so much! You made my day!!

New Rimmel London Face Products – Review

Hi lovelies, 

How are you all doing? It’s a NEW week and my goodness days are flying by!! I am so excited to share with you this blog post today, it’s about one of my favourite drugstore brands and a brand that I have been using for quite a while now – Rimmel London. 

I would like to thank Rimmel London Malta and Vivian Corporation for these products!  Both these products are from Rimmel’s Insta Range! 

IMG_4603

I have been trying these out for a week now. I personally do not have much practice when it comes to contouring with cream products, but I tried. And I hope to keep trying to get better at contouring!

INSTA CONCEAL & CONTOUR PALETTE

IMG_4604.jpg

We are first going to start talking about this Conceal and Contour Palette. It comes with 3 shades – a concealer, a contour shade and a highlight shade. At the back of the palette, it gives you instructions on where to apply the three shades – very helpful!

This palette will help you sculpt and create a naturally flawless complexion with defined features. The best way to use this product is after you prime and apply foundation.

I followed the instructions of where to apply the 3 shades –

IMG_4473.jpg

This product comes in 3 shadesLight, Medium and Dark. The one I have is the medium. At first I was sort of worried because being in Stirling, my Maltese complexion has gone – not that I was tanned before but I have always been on the fair side. But now I am very fair. But when blending out those shades, they really blended out well and I liked the finished look.

IMG_4607.jpg
From Left to Right – Concealer, Contour & Highlight Shade

The highlight shade is very sheer and it isn’t that shiny highlight you would want. I liked the contour shade the most even though the concealer did blend out nicely under my eyes and once I set it with powder it did not crease and lasted all day! 

IMG_4484.jpg

INSTA DUO CONTOUR STICK

IMG_4609.jpg

The second product I will be writing about today is this new Duo Contour Stick which comes with a contour shade on one side and a highlight on the other. I prefer this highlight shade to the one in the palette.

IMG_4610

This product is perfect for contouring your cheekbones, nose and cupid bow. It provides for an easy application and defines facial features. I loved applying this to my skin, it is very creamy. The contour stick again comes in 3 shades – Light, Medium and Dark and I have the medium one. I applied this after I applied the shades from the previous palette but I have also used it on its own after applying foundation. I love how easy it was to apply the product and I prefer using this kind of cream contour product rather than a powder contour.

IMG_4492

I like how they blend into the skin without any trouble and the highlight is very sheer but brighter than the one I mentioned above. It’s a perfect highlight for an everyday makeup tutorial. 

IMG_4499
I really like how the products helped me contour my nose!

And that was my review on these 2 brand new face products from Rimmel London! 

Have you tried either one of the product? What did you think of them? Let me know in the comments down below!! 

Again I would like to thank Rimmel London Malta and Vivian Corporation for these products!  I will surely continue using them to get better at my contouring game!

Have a lovely week!! 

Love Kezia

Testing out Profusion Cosmetics – Review

Hi lovelies, 

How are we all doing? I am coming back with another blog post! I hope you enjoy it!!

This time it’s all about a fairly new UK brand called Profusion Cosmetics. However, this brand has been in the US for quite a while so it is now branching into Europe!

To all my Maltese followers, at the time being the website doesn’t ship to Malta however, it will in the future. There are ways you can still order from their website like using Maltapost Send On instead.

Their website can be found right here – https://profusioncosmetics.co.uk/

They have a variety of products and lots of them come in box sets! The prices of these products are amazing!

IMG_4425

So I would like to thank Profusion Cosmetics for these products!! I did a video reviewing an eyebrow palette and 2 eyeshadow palettes! You could see my first impressions and first reactions to how the products tested out right here –

And now I will give a review as I have been using them for the past week!

#1 Brows Pro Makeup Case – £7.95

IMG_4429

I love this Brow palette. First off let’s talk about the packaging. Both products that I will be talking about today come in this tin packaging which reminds me of the Naked 2 Palette from Urban Decay. I kind of like it and not like it because yes it has lots of different products but it can seem bulky and not that travel friendly. 

But this Brows Case has everything you need to create those perfect brows that you desire. It has a double ended brush with the brush to apply the eyebrow powders with (which is amazing) together with a spoolie on the other side.  It includes a wax that helps you sit your brows in place. Then it includes 4 different brow powder shades which is amazing !! And finally it also includes a highlighter you can apply on your brow bone and an eyebrow pencil to end the brow look!

IMG_4374
Brow Case applied !!

I love this palette and doing my brows with all these products really helped with a quick and easy application! The powders work really well and I love the brush! This palette is perfect for beginners!!

#2 Eyes Pro Makeup Case – Nude Palette – £7.95

IMG_4436

I love this eyeshadow palette, it comes with both everyday shadow shades but then in the end it has darker shades which you could use for smokey eye looks! I loved these shadows, they blended nicely, they are so pigmented and they are not too powdery, there barely was any fallout from them being applied! The palette includes both shimmer and matte shades.

I simply love the finished look I created in the video and I also tried the palette off camera for everyday natural makeup looks where I mixed some of the lighter shades! But yeah it is a great palette and for only £7.95 you cannot go wrong!! You get so much shadow shades!!

#3 Eyes Pro Makeup Case – Amber Palette – £7.95

IMG_4438

This palette is similar to the one above meaning the shadows perform the same. However, I LOVE the shades of this palette. They remind me of Modern Renaissance shades from Anastasia Beverly Hills! And this palette is so much cheaper and still performs well!! I love this and I loved mixing some of these shades with the Nudes Palette to create the look I created in the video. However, I have also used it on its own off camera and loved it nonetheless.

IMG_4402
The finished look created in the video!

Similar to the previous palette, the shadows blended well, they were not powdery and they are so pigmented. The palette again includes both shimmer and matte shades and I love making my brush a little bit damp before applying the shimmer shades so to pop the colour up more of those shades! Love it!! 

And basically that’s it. Overall I was impressed by these products and look forward to trying out more from Profusion Cosmetics!! Thank you once again to Profusion Cosmetics for these products!! 

Have you ever tried Profusion Cosmetics or intend to? Let me know in the comments down below!!

Happy Monday, here in Scotland we have a bank holiday! So I thought it’s a perfect timing to write up a blog post before I start up my day full of studying! Wish me luck!!

I hope you all had a great Easter with your family and loved ones!

IMG_4441

Today’s blog post is all about the brand called Anatomicals! I love the concept of this skincare brand that ‘Only Wants You For Your Body’! And it is also a cruelty free skincare brand! They have a variety of products from face masks to lip scrubs to body products too! I would like to thank Anatomicals UK for these products! I had fun trying them out and I really am grateful for this opportunity!

To all my Maltese followers you can order Anatomicals products right here – http://www.anatomicals.com.mt/ – they have FREE SHIPPING for Malta !! However, if you visit their UK website it’s quite unique!! I really invite you to check it out by CLICKING HERE.

You can find Anatomicals products in Superdrug, ASOS, Boots, Harvey Nichols, Top Shop, and more! To see the full list CLICK HERE.

Today I will be sharing my opinion on some of the products from Anatomicals that I have tried out in the past week! So let’s begin!

#1 Anatomicals Face the World Masks (€2/£1 each)

IMG_4454

I love the titles of these masks!

I have only tried out the anti-stress face mask because I was having a stressful day so I needed some de-stressing pamper time! I love the smell you find once you open the packet – so chocolate-y – and there is a lot of product in the packet! In fact I saved the packet for another use as I did not use all the mask at one go!

IMG_4456

I love how it applied on the skin, felt so refreshing and cool! Left it on for 15 minutes and it dried up really quickly I must say, then gently rinsed it off. It came off easily without making a big mess and my skin felt smooth and soft! I loved it and cannot wait to try out the other two!!

#2 Body Lotion (I could not find it online at the time being but keep an eye out for this product!)

IMG_4448

I love the name of this lotion!! Smoother butts love coconuts – Coconut and Mango Body Lotion!! I love the smell of this body lotion reminds me of SUMMER!! Loved using it after having washed my body! It made my skin feel super soft and made my skin smell so good!! Love using it and it has become a staple in my shower routine!

#3 Stop Cracking Up Lip Balm (€3.50/£2.49)

IMG_4447

This Lip Balm has saved my very dry and very chapped lips!! Here in Scotland it gets so cold and my lips have become so dry! In Malta, I never had this kind of problem so this product came at a perfect time!! I LOVE …. BUT LOVE the smell of this lip balm it reminds me of hazelnuts! It comes out just like a gloss so your lips not only feel less dry but are glossy too!! WIN WIN!!

#4 Anatomicals Bichotin Charcoal Toothbrush (Could not find it online!)

IMG_4444

This is the cutest toothbrush I have ever owned! It’s yellow and pink and comes with a cute pink case too! I loved using it, it helps me get into those annoying spots which are hard to reach whilst brushing my teeth! Really loved this toothbrush – too cute!!

And those were all the products I tried out from Anatomicals! Again, I would like to thank Anatomicals UK for these products!!

Have you ever tried out any of these products? Let me know in the comments down below!!

Thank you so much for reading!! Join me again on Friday for another Blog Post!

Aliza 3 in 1 Face Cleansing Paper! Review!

Hi everyone,

How are you all doing? I hope you are having a great week. Before we get started with today’s blog post, I wish you all a Happy Easter!! I hope you enjoy eating lots of easter eggs and you Maltese enjoy a ‘Figolla’ or two!!

Today’s blog post is all about the skin care brand called Aliza Naturals which hosts a variety of skin products, one of which is the Aliza 3 in 1 Face Cleansing Paper!

IMG_4331

That’s right face cleansing paper! This product was sent to me, so I thank Aliza Naturals so much for this product!

Basically, it is a three in one cleanser and makeup remover that helps purify and hydrate your skin, leaving it soft and clean. It is free from artificial fragrances, colours, gluten and ethanol alcohol. It is a new revolutionary way of washing your face! The product right now costs $24.95!!

IMG_4324

If you would like to see me use these cleansing paper, then you can watch the video I posted this week on my Youtube channel!

 

Benefits of the Ingredients found in the Aliza 3 in 1 Face Paper Cleanser –

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Extract – 

Great for moisturising and calming the skin.

Arnica Montana Flower Extract –

Improves the skin’s overall health and also moisturises the skin.

Royal Jelly Extract – 

Helps in reducing inflammation while also improving the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It also helps prevent skin looking dehydrated and boosts firmness and elasticity.

Witch Hazel Extract – 
This helps with the cleansing process and prevents blackheads and acne whilst also smoothing out the skin’s appearance.
Rose Flower Oil – 
Helps in soothing and nourishing the skin whilst also keeping it radiant.
Citric Acid – 
Helps rid dead skin cells and speeds up new cellular process, promoting new skin growth that can help alleviate the appearance of age spots.

How to use:-

Photo taken from www.alizanaturals.com
  1. Place 1-3 cleansing sheets in the palm of your hand.
  2. Moisten with water.
  3. Gently rub together until melted into a silky foam.
  4. Gently apply the foam to your face in circular motions.
  5. Rinse with water and pat skin dry.

IMG_4333

Which skin type is it good for?

  • Normal
  • Oily
  • Combination
  • Dry
  • Sensitive

My thoughts – 

IMG_4334

I find the concept so fascinating, that these three sheets can be washed away in soap and the soap just remove your makeup so easily. In the video, you saw what heavy eye makeup I had. But it went off in seconds! I have used this a couple of times now, and may I remind you that each pack comes with 50 sheets! It also is so compact and so easy to carry around!! Brilliant for packing on holiday because it isn’t a liquid!!

IMG_4322

But from all the times I used it, I love how soft it left my skin and it did not cause any irritation on my skin. I have combination and sensitive skin, just in case you are wondering! So yeah it did wash off my makeup and left it all clean and soft! And one final thing about the product is the packaging it comes in! It is so sleek and high quality, I love it!!

IMG_4325
How my skin looked after using the Aliza Naturals 3 in 1 Face Paper Cleanser

Anyways, so there was my thought on the Aliza Naturals 3 in 1 Face Paper Cleanser. Thank you so much to Aliza Naturals for this product! Have you guys tried it or want to try it after reading my blog post or watching my video? Leave me a comment down below!!

Thank you so much for reading!

And again, I wish you all a Happy Easter!!

Love Kezia

Zaful Spring Wishlist – KezziesCorner

Hi Everyone, 

Today’s blog post is all about Zaful – an online shopping website for clothes. You can visit Zaful right here – https://www.zaful.com/?lkid=13506609 . They also sell accessories from chokers, sunglasses, earrings and makeup too!

I love doing these types of blog posts, checking out what these websites have in stock right now !! I am aware that the material of Zaful is a hit or miss but they have the cutest things!!

And I have come across some amazing NEW PIECES from their website of Spring clothing that I would only wear in Malta! But here is a blog post of 10 outfits I think would look great this Spring!!

I will first share 2 outfits that have a separate top and trousers. The rest will then include two piece sets/dresses/romper styles! (Please note that all photos were taken from Zaful’s website!)

Outfit #1 

Screen Shot 2018-03-25 at 15.37.29-side1. Long Sleeve Off The Shoulder Crop Top – $16 – http://www.zaful.com/long-sleeve-off-the-shoulder-crop-top-p_520364.html?lkid=13506609

2. Striped Wide Leg Palazzo Pants – $22.99 – https://www.zaful.com/striped-wide-leg-palazzo-pants-p_517365.html?lkid=13506609

Now I don’t know if the colour of both these items would be too much together but you could mix and match these two pieces with other clothing items. Like the top you could wear it with a black high waisted skirt whilst the trousers you could wear it with the same top but maybe in white or black!! I love both styles of these pieces and I am starting to fall in love with trousers like these that I would like to invest in more of these trousers and add more to my wardrobe!

Outfit #2 

Screen Shot 2018-03-25 at 15.34.43-side

1. Wrinkle Lace Up Crop Blouse – $21.54 – https://www.zaful.com/wrinkle-lace-up-crop-blouse-p_518624.html?lkid=13506609

2. Striped Velvet Wide Leg Pants – $23.06 – https://www.zaful.com/striped-velvet-wide-leg-pants-p_495753.html?lkid=13506609

Apologies for bringing another trousers here, but I really love matching these trousers because you can match them with so much. Whilst in the past I did not think this was possible as I was always scared of buying a pair!! This trousers I paired it with the corset like off the shoulder top!! Very summer like and this is more of a night out outfit!

Outfit #3

1

Off Shoulder Floral Top And Button Up Skirt Set – $20.49 – https://www.zaful.com/off-shoulder-floral-top-and-button-up-skirt-set-p_520681.html?lkid=13506609

I now will show you some two piece sets from Zaful. I love two piece outfits because you can wear the pieces together or even with other pieces. Like the top alone you can match it with a denim skirt whilst the skirt you can match it with a black crop top! But I love these two pieces together, they are so pink and girly together!

Outfit #4 

2

Stripes Tube Top And High Slit Wide Leg Pants – $29.99 – https://www.zaful.com/stripes-tube-top-and-high-slit-wide-leg-pants-p_396863.html?lkid=13506609

I love my stripes during Spring and Summer. And again these you can totally wear them with different pieces. Like the top you can match it with a high waisted ripped jeans and the trousers you can match it with another coloured off the shoulder top – like the mustard one I showed you guys above!! But I love these two together as well, and you can match these with a denim jacket or oversized black blazer if you would like to make the outfit look a little smart too!

Outfit #5

3

Bralette Plaid Top And Slit Mini Skirt Set – $16.99 – https://www.zaful.com/bralette-plaid-top-and-slit-mini-skirt-set-p_520311.html?lkid=13506609 

This is such a cute date night outfit for the hot summer months! I love this, matching it with a pair of sunnies and sandals! It would look great for a BBQ night too! Those round sunglasses in the photo also looks great with this outfit!

Outfit #6 

4

Striped Camisole With Wide Leg Shorts – $19.99 – https://www.zaful.com/striped-camisole-with-wide-leg-shorts-p_520181.html?lkid=13506609 

Another striped two-piece but this time with a pair of shorts. I think this would be a great outfit if you are going to have cocktails for lunch or you’re going shopping. So you will feel comfortable and it will be easy when trying on clothes at the shops! And you also will look stylish and cute! This also comes in two other shades – green striped with white and blue striped with white!

Outfit #7 

5

Smocked Crop Cami Top And Skirt Set – $21.99 – https://www.zaful.com/smocked-crop-cami-top-and-skirt-set-p_520038.html?lkid=13506609 

This is quite similar to the grey two-piece I showed above. However, the colour is totally different, it’s this gorgeous sky blue which would look great on your sun kissed tan! I would also pair it similarly to how it is paired on the photo! A pair of brown sandals with a bag in a similar shade of brown! And gladiator sandals or heels would look cute with this outfit too!

Outfit #8

6

Ruffle Floral Off Shoulder Mini Dress – $18.36 – https://www.zaful.com/ruffle-floral-off-shoulder-mini-dress-p_494207.html?lkid=13506609 

This is a cute off the shoulder mini dress and with a floral pattern! If you don’t know me I love my florals during the spring time! Be it on my top or trousers but I would love the floral print on a dress too! You can either wear this dress with strappy black heels or even a pair of sandals! This outfit would look great for Spring/Summer!

Outfit #9 

7

Cami Tied Cut Out Floral Jumpsuit – $28.40 –  https://www.zaful.com/cami-tied-cut-out-floral-jumpsuit-p_518837.html?lkid=13506609 

This is a cute floral jumpsuit which would look cute on date night going out to eat at a fancy restaurant. I love the design it comes with and the pink flowers. However, my only concern is how it would stay on my chest. But I guess it looks very pretty and I would love to add this to my wardrobe! It also comes in a pink colour rather than black, with blue flowers!

Outfit #10 

Screen Shot 2018-03-25 at 15.38.23

Floral Embroidered Choker Off Shoulder Romper – $26.49 – https://www.zaful.com/floral-embroidered-choker-off-shoulder-romper-p_403268.html?lkid=13506609 

The final outfit is a romper and it looks as though the material is suede like! I love the flowers on the chest and it just looks like a gorgeous night out outfit for during the spring/summer time! You can either take it on a night out of cocktails followed by a lot of dancing at the club or even a date night at a restaurant looking gorgeous!

And those were the outfits I found from the NEW section from the Zaful website! I think they have an amazing variety of clothing pieces which you could easily mix and match. Their prices are great especially for the two piece sets which you have to remember you are getting two pieces which you can mix and match for that one single price! They also have lovely accessory pieces which I recommend you checking them out! Also, the website always have discount codes going on so you could save even more on your purchases!!

What did you think of the outfits I picked? Do you like any? Ever ordered off Zaful? Let me know in the comments down below!! 

My next blog post will be coming out this Friday! 

Have a lovely week!

Love Kezia

New Products from Technic Cosmetics – Review

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all doing well! I am back home for a little break but will be back in Stirling in a week! Today’s blog post is all about the UK Brand called Technic Cosmetics. It’s an animal cruelty free brand that sells a variety of products from face products, to lipsticks to highlighters to contour or blush palettes as well as many other products! Not only do they sell a variety of items but they do sell them at very reasonable prices! You can order/buy Technic cosmetics from various different shops such as Bodycare (if you are from the UK), Peacocks, Dorothy Perkins, Pretty Little Things and Boohoo and many others (click here to view the complete list of where Technic products are sold!)

27901685_10213689794451783_2081312067_o

So anyways, let us go ahead and get started with the review. But, before doing so I would like to once again say thank you to Technic Cosmetics for the lovely products!!

Let’s begin with the review –

Technic Strobe FX Cream – Catching Rays – £4

IMG_3605

IMG_3606

You could apply this strobe cream either before applying any foundation to give your skin a lovely natural glow or else you could just apply it as your cream highlight on your cheekbones. I have tried it both ways and found that applying it before anything else, really does help with giving a nicer glow to your skin and to your overall makeup look! It can be a little sticky but after setting your face with some powder, I think you will be all good!

Technic Colour Correcting Setting Powder  – £4

IMG_3603

IMG_3604

The shade that I was sent was a banana shade and this meant that it kind of was too dark for me. I mean you could use it to help cover redness or set your concealer but I prefer to use light skin shades rather than yellow tones. But when I applied it underneath my eyes, even though I did not like the colour I still felt that it set my concealer right without any creases.

Technic Get Gorgeous Highlighter – £3 – Pink Sparkle

IMG_3599

The Get Gorgeous Highlight range is so cute and pigmented from Technic. Pink Sparkle is literally a glittery pink highlight. I don’t like glitter sparkles in my highlight and I preferred the one that I will be mentioning next!

Technic Get Gorgeous Highlighter – £3 – Peachy Candy

IMG_3600

I prefer this shade from the Get Gorgeous Highlighter range for sure! I think this highlight during summer with your summer sun tan will look great. It doesn’t have any glitter specs running around but it just glides onto your cheekbone and gives you a pop of colour and a glow! You could also apply it to your collar bones! It works perfectly and isn’t patchy at all!

Technic Setting Spray -£3

IMG_3609

The scent of this spray isn’t that nice BUT I love the way it sets all my makeup. It just helps me makeup last all day and if you feel your skin tacky or sticky, this will help reduce that feeling. How it sprays is good too and so is the packaging but the scent I am not too keen on. I prefer this to the primer spray that I tried from Technic.

Technic Pro Finish Eyeshadow – Toffee Edition – £8

IMG_3596

This palette has such lovely tones of browns and reds and matte shades as well as shimmer shades. You can create a number of looks from evening makeup looks to morning ones too! It is a perfect starter palette and it also comes with a double ended brush. One side is a blending brush which I loved using and the other side is a flat shaded brush which I am not too sure about! But this palette blends well, is not too powdery and lasts long!

Technic Colour Fix Blush Palette – £5

IMG_3597

I love this blush palette, honestly I do and out of all the products I will mention today, this has to be my FAVOURITE product out of them all!! You can mix different blush shades to create your choice of blush for the day. You have natural blush shades whilst you also have more intense ones. I found them to work well and apply well on my skin and they blended nicely too!

Technic Mega Lash Waterproof Mascara – £4

IMG_3611

The wand of this mascara is great for gripping all your lashes and giving them volume. It doesn’t lengthen my lashes all too much but it does give them volume. It doesn’t transfer and it is waterproof! I love the packaging of it too!

Technic Metallic Lipgloss – £4 in Aphrodite

IMG_3602

I prefer this shade to the one I will be mentioning after this one! It is a little patchy if you are going to apply it on its own but I like applying it on top of a matte lipstick, I find the colour is much better than applying it on its own! It has a sweet smell and even though it is a gloss it isn’t that sticky!

Technic Metallic Lipgloss – £4 in Bling

IMG_3608

Like I wrote, I prefer the shade Aphrodite, but this one I guess is a perfect colour for summer or for those festivals like Coachella! I think they will spring a pop to your makeup look!

And those were the products I had to review for today. If you want you could check out my video down below where I show you how these products applied and also some other products from the brand which I bought myself!

Blogmas Day 5 🎄🎅🏻☃️ – Christmas Gift Ideas 2017 (For Her)

Hi everyone, 

We are already 5 days into BLOGMAS!! Going Strong!!

So today’s blog post is all about Christmas Gift Ideas (For Her). I will be mentioning 10 ideas that I think would be great Christmas Gifts.

#1 Morphe – 35O2 – Second Nature Eyeshadow Palette – Retails for $23

Screen Shot 2017-12-04 at 19.39.15

This palette has been talked about a lot and in my opinion has the loveliest of shades. (I just got mine and cannot wait to play around with it!) But I think this would make for a perfect Christmas gift as it has vibrant shades, the quality is just amazing and you just get so much in the palette! You can create so many looks!! I think this would be an amazing Christmas gift!

#2 Makeup Revolution – Soph X Eye shadow Palette – Retails for $10 

IMG_2441

If you want something slightly cheaper than the gift above, any eyeshadow palette from Makeup revolution would honestly be great! But one that I know you cannot go wrong with is this one right here. I just made a makeup tutorial using this palette and I think it is just so pigmented, the shadows blend well, you get a great variety of colours and it is only $10! What more can a girl want!! And it comes in the cutest packaging and if your friend/girlfriend/daughter/whoever loves watching Youtubers then she would definitely love this as this was a Collab with SophDoesNails!

#3 Jeffree Star Cosmetics – Velour Liquid Lipstick Holiday Collection – Retails for £16 each 

Screen Shot 2017-12-04 at 19.53.50

There are 8 different shades of these lipsticks and they all look stunning. I personally haven’t tried these but I think giving any Jeffree Star Liquid Lipstick would be amazing. In this collection you can choose from either a matte or metallic finish. I think they are a great Christmas Gift Idea!

#4 Sand & Sky – Brilliant Skin Purifying Pink Clay Mask – Retails for £39.50

Screen Shot 2017-12-04 at 19.53.32

Yes this is a little pricey, but wait I will give you a cheaper alternative don’t worry! But this mask I think is perfect for those girls who love face masks, love having their weekly chill session and relaxation time! It is a great face mask that brightens and clears your skin! It dries so quickly and feels amazing after rinsing it off!

#5 Garnier Face Masks – Retails for £2.99 

1-choose-the-mask-for-your-skin-type

I told you I would give you an alternative face mask which is much cheaper. You can buy different types of these Garnier face masks and they are amazing too. You can reuse these and they are so hydrating and refreshing on your skin!! You can make a cute little gift set with these!! These could also be stocking fillers!

#6 Zoella Snowella Fragrance Gift Set – Retails for £14 

Screen Shot 2017-12-04 at 19.51.17

In this set, you get a body lotion and a body set. You can buy them separately but honestly I think buying the set is much more worth both for the quantity you get and for the value of money. I love Zoella’s products and the Snowella body mist just smells so sweet and cute! I think that this gift is perfect for those girls who love spraying anything during anytime of the day!!

#7 Zoella Snowella Brew Me a Bath Gift Set – Retails for £12

Screen Shot 2017-12-04 at 19.54.36

This set is perfect for those girls who enjoy taking baths! The gift set includes a bath tea bag and a bath milk powder! They come so cutely packaged and the girls who love baths would thank you for them !! Maybe they never used a bath tea bag but from then on they would do so! And again it is from Zoella so if the girl you are buying the gift for loves Youtubers then I am sure she would love this! Anything from Zoella is actually a cute Christmas Gift Idea!

#8 Touch LED Light Illuminated Make Up Vanity Mirror – Retails for £8.95 

Screen Shot 2017-12-04 at 19.58.24

This is the cutest mirror that someone could add to their vanity. So many people have talked about and bought it. And so many people loved it. I think it is a cute gift idea and is an inexpensive one too!

#9 Kylie Cosmetics – The Naughty or Nice Kyshadow Palettes –  Retails for $44 each

This gift is for those who are Kylie Cosmetics fan. Both these palettes are currently in stock and their shades look equally cute. Which palette you choose for a gift depends on the person who you are buying it hehe! I think that any girl would love this … but that’s my opinion so I might be wrong!! (Just be careful as they might not arrive before Christmas, I ordered mine on November 27th and they haven’t even been shipped yet 😦 )

#10 Zoella Journal – Retails for £15

Screen Shot 2017-12-04 at 20.03.17

This is for those girls who loves note taking or journaling or writing to do lists! And yes it is another Zoella product but like I said, Zoella has some amazing gift ideas from her collection! I think that this journal had to make it into my list of Christmas ideas for her as it is just too cute!

Blogmas Day 2 – 3INA – The Utility Collection – Review

Hi Everyone,

It’s Saturday 2nd December a.k.a Blogmas Day 2!!

IMG_2726

Today’s blog post is all about the Utility Collection from 3INA. I have done various blog posts on 3INA before and you can check them out right here –

So yeah I have already done a few! I love 3INA because it allows me to come out of my comfort zone and create looks that I would have never imagined of creating! It gives me the confidence and provides me with colours that I thought wouldn’t look good on me!!

IMG_2732

If you are Maltese like me you can find 3INA outlets at the Point – Sliema, in Qormi near Kiabi, Pama Shopping Village and Valletta. 

I would like to thank 3INA Malta and the Hudson Group for the products, I truly appreciate them!!

And thanks to mum & dad for bringing them over when they came to visit me!!

IMG_2735

Any who’s this collection called the Utility collection is an urban style one and all products from 3INA are cruelty free and paraben free. Here are the products that I tried out – 

The shadow paint – Shade 700 – €8.95

IMG_2740

This is a long lasting eyeshadow that gives an intense and magnetic colour, it also lasts all day and is waterproof. It comes in four different shades – white, yellow, green and blue.

IMG_2741

My thoughts – It is not a product that I would go for and the only way I could think of applying this product is by applying a green shade all over my crease and placing the shadow paint on my lids, It was a little difficult to work with and you will need patience with this product. However, after fixing it and blending back and forth I managed to make it work … or I think I did.

When it came to removing the product I found that it was a little hard to remove. This is not a favourite product of mine but it could reflect on my makeup skills and not being a professional makeup artist. Comment down below of what other ways I can use this shadow paint, I would love to know!! 

The Eyeliner Pencil – Shade 613 – €4.95

IMG_2742

This eyeliner pencil comes in a vivid colour, it is super intense and pigmented and helps with creating a precise line and is easy to blend. You can get this product in two shade – green like mine or a mustard yellow. 

IMG_2744

My thoughts – I loved applying this on my waterline, it applied so easily and I love the shade I got mine in – makes your eyes pop especially with that shadow paint all over the lid! I also noticed how creamy the formula! Really loved how this product applied!

The Chubby lipstick – Shade 113 – €8.95

IMG_2737

Great for travelling and applies so quickly and easily. The rounded tip helps with applying over the cupid’s bow and lip corners. It comes in four different shades, a muddy brown like mine, mustard, light pink and dark pink. 

IMG_2738

My thoughts – I loved how this chubby lipstick applied, I didn’t take long to apply the lipstick at all! It is very pigmented, soft and moisturising on the lips and not at all dry even though it is a matte formula. Love the shade it came in – perfect for autumn/winter!! 

IMG_2652
Here’s the finished look using all 3 products!

You can also watch my video where I even showed you how they apply –

Have you guys tried out any of the products from the Utility Collection from 3INA? Comment down below and let me know!! 

Thank you once again to 3INA Malta and Hudson Group Malta for the the products!! 

Until tomorrow,

Love Kezia

Blogmas Day 1 – New products from Rimmel – Review

Hi Everyone, 

It is officially the 1st of December!! I cannot believe that December is already here!! Excited for Christmas Eve, Christmas Lunch and THE NEW YEAR!! 

And like I said last week, I will be attempting to do Blogmas right here on my blog as I have done for the last 2 years!!

I love writing here on my blog and Blogmas is a good excuse to get to write a blog post a day. Although, I hope I will manage this year as I have an exam on the 11th and a thesis proposal due, so yeah!! Fingers crossed I will though!!

IMG_2603

So the first Blogmas Blog post is going to be about some new products from Rimmel. I would like to thank Rimmel London Malta and Vivian Corporation for the products, I am ever so so grateful!!

IMG_2607

So let us begin with reviewing the products. All four products are based around the EYES!!

#1 Brow this way – Brow Pomade – Fix & Fill – Shade 003 Dark

IMG_2609

I really liked the formula of this brow product, it filled in my brows so quickly and was so easy to use. If I did make a mistake, I could fix it easily.

I wish it was a product that you can simply roll up instead of having to sharpen it especially because I don’t have a sharpener in Stirling for this product’s size … Must bring/buy a sharpener!! 

My brows remained set all day as it has up to a 24 hour wear formula and it is smudge proof, waterproof and fade proof. All in all, I loved using this product!

#2 Scandal eyes – 24 HR Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eye pencil – Shade 003 Brown

IMG_2610

I love the formula of this eye pencil – it is so creamy and easy to apply. I loved applying it to my waterline and it just applied perfectly.

IMG_2611

I love the shade mine came in – 003 Brown, I think it is a makeup essential for your makeup collection!

#3 Wonder Wing Eyeliner – Shade 001 Black

IMG_2612

As you know I am quite picky when it comes to eyeliner pens. However, the Wonder Wing from Rimmel has passed my test! It has a stamp applicator developed by Rimmel and is made up of a smudge-proof formula.

IMG_2613Again this product was easy to apply, created a pitch black wing eyeliner and lasted all day!

IMG_2614

#4 Wonderfully Real Mascara with Keratin

IMG_2615

When I saw that this mascara contained Keratin I was intrigued! It also contains argan oil, so when applying this mascara you are also helping protect your lashes!

IMG_2616

I think this has been by far the softest mascara I have ever applied to my lashes! It has a rich and creamy formula, is flake proof and lasts all day. It has a wonder brush that helps with creating longer and fuller lashes. 

I have been applying this mascara on a daily basis and simply love the wear of it!

Here is an eye look using all 4 products!! 

Have you bought these products? Or are you now intrigued to do so? Comment down below and let me know!! 

Again thank you once again to Rimmel London Malta andVivian Corporation for the products!!

Thank you to everyone for reading!! Don’t forget to follow my blog!! This month I will have a blog post a day = BLOGMAS!! 

Until tomorrow … 

Love Kezia
