April 2017 Favourites – Skincare, Hair products & Makeup

Hi beauty lovers, 

How are you all doing? Hope you are having a great start to the week!

IMG_8611

Yesterday, I released a BONUS video up on my channel and it was all about my April Favourites; ranging from hair products, skincare and makeup!

My April 2017 Favourites – 

IMG_8622

Tangle Teezer 

I love using this to untie my knots that seem to love my hair! I love using in this show before applying conditioner and before rinsing it off. This helps my hair in not getting too tangled after coming out of the shower!

TRESemme’ Salon Sleek Frizz Control Smooth Memory Spray

I love using this before straightening my hair and to keep my hair from frizzing after having had a shower!

Arad Facial Cleansing Milk 

This has been my favourite product to use to remove my makeup! It literally takes off any makeup you could possibly use! It is so soft and gentle on the skin. You can click here to read an entire blog post all about this product!

Arad Mineral Facial Scrub

I have been using this in conjunction with my Vichy cleanser and have loved the combination. It really has helped my pores decrease in size and helped keep my face cleansed and clean. You can click here to read an entire blog post all about this product!

NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer

IMG_8638

I have been using this primer constantly this month – as in April! It helps keep my makeup last longer and also helps create a nice base before applying other makeup products! It also helps decrease the look of pores!

L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Foundation

IMG_8623

I have been wanting to buy this foundation for a while now and now having tried it I can say it was worth the wait and the money! I would say this a medium to full coverage – very buildable! I love how it sits on the skin – not cakey whatsoever!

Collection  Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer

IMG_8639

For the price it is amazing! One of my favourite concealers to highlight the bridge of my nose, my cupid’s bow and chin! And also to conceal under my eyes. It doesn’t crease and lasts all day!

Wycon Prime and Fine Powder

IMG_8640

This sets my foundation and concealer nicely. It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and the shade is perfect and blends well!

Milani Baked blush in Berry Amore 

I love this blush – it’s like a mix of orange, pink and gold altogether! It has tiny glitter speckles which adds to the intensity and glimmer of this blush! I also love the packaging of the baked blushes by Milani!

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

I have been wanting this product ever since I saw Kathleen Lights rave about it so many times! I ordered mine off ebay! I forgot to say in the video that it has an intense summer smell that makes you excited for beach and summer days. It just creates a natural and bronzed look. It is very light weight and not that intense – my favourite!

Sleek Precious Metals Highlight Palette 

The packaging is gorgeous and the highlights are amazing! My favourite shade is Antique Bronze which is a lovely gold cream highlight. Perfect for not pointing out your pores more as a powder highlight would!

Max Factor Natural Brow Styler

IMG_8636

I love this as it settles and tames my brows in place. It keeps them intact all throughout the day and dries clearly.

IMG_8634

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara

This mascara has been an old favourite of mine. It just separates and lengthens my lashes nicely. It also doesn’t transfer on eyelids.

Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara

Yes if you are doing a physical activity and you are wearing this – it may transfer on your eyelids. But it just lengthens and volumises the lashes ever so nicely!

Essence The Cushion Eyeliner

I had never used a cushion eyeliner before and let me just say this small pot really impressed me! It just creates a lovely intense black line!

Essence The Eyeliner Waterproof Pen

You can create a thick or bold line with this waterproof pen. It doesn’t move either! It is not patchy whatsoever although, as the day goes by it does become patchy and you might want to retouch it.

BH Cosmetics Illuminate by Ashley Tisdale- Beach Goddess Palette –

IMG_8616

This palette is just too cute. I love the shades they are all so natural and you can create different looks. My favourite shades from this palette are Fiji – a cream shade , Maui – a copper shade and St. Lucia – a bronze shade. The eyeshadows are also so pigmented and blend nicely together.

MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer – Sizzle

You know that I love these lipsticks! I also includes this shade in my Favourite Spring Lipsticks video and couldn’t resist but to include this in my April Favourites too! I love this shade – it is a beautiful orange/red shade! This one isn’t patchy whatsoever!

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip – Point Zero

I know that this doesn’t look like a spring shade but I loved wearing it this month and found myself reaching it for it more than I thought I would. The wand isn’t my favourite, but once applied I love the shade on my lips. It is like a brown/nude shade and has a bit of a satin shimmer finish. This was one of the collaborations Kathleen Lights did with Colourpop.

Favourite TV Show – 13 Reasons Why

Oh my god – if you haven’t seen this you really should! It is a Netflix TV Show made up of 13 episodes – 13 reasons why Hannah did what she did! It is a different story from what you normally see but worth watching because these things actually do happen and we need to have our eyes opened more!

Favourite Movie – Beauty and the Beast

This is such a cute movie. I normally do not like movies which have songs in them like musicals do. But I didn’t mind the songs in this movie! The costumes and the hair was amazing and I love the little cutlery dancing around the objects being animate. Watching this movie also brought back childhood memories of when I used to see the cartoon movie on tape!

What were your favourites of April 2017? Have you tried any of the above products?

Thank you so much for reading!

August 2016 Favourites

Hi everyone, 

Hope you are all having a lovely week!

Today’s video that was uploaded is about my August Favourites of 2016.

I tried to include a variety of items that I use on a daily basis. And in the end I also included a favourite book of mine that I read this past month and 2 TV shows that I am hooked on watching!!

Here is my video – 

The products mentioned in this video:

Herbal Essences Beautiful Ends Shampoo
Herbal Essences Ignite My Colour Conditioner

IMG_4339

I think the Shampoos and Conditioners from Herbal Essence are lovely products and leave your hair not only smelling like strawberries but also leaves your hair feeling smooth and healthy.

Makeup Revolution Pro Base Blur Primer

IMG_4344

This is a good primer to start off your makeup. It is a good base and helps decrease those nasty pores from being seen. It may not hide them completely but it does decrease them.
L’Oreal Paris Infallible 24HR Foundation in Rose beige

IMG_4341

I have been loving this foundation this summer! It has been one of my favourites as it makes me believe that my face actually looks flawless! And that is saying a lot from me who has acne scares and pores galore!
ZOEVA Defined Buffer Brush N. 103

I loved applying my l’Oreal foundation with this brush. I think it blends out foundations really well especially if they are creamy and liquid-y!
Rimmel Clear Complexion Clarifying Powder in Transparent

IMG_4345

I have replaced my Rimmel Stay Matte Powder for this one! I think it is just a perfect, lightweight powder to set all your makeup.
Milani Illuminating Face Powder in Amber Nectar

IMG_4337

I love using this as my blush as it contains different shades that when blended together make a perfect natural blushed look.
MUA Mosaic Bronzer in Sunkissed Glow

IMG_4335

Again this has different browns all blended together which can give you that natural bronzed looking effect that we all crave during these hot summer months!
BH Cosmetics HD Brow Pencil in Blonde

IMG_4372

I absolutely love this brow pencil! It is by far the best out of all my eyebrow products in my collection. It just fills your brows in the most natural and perfect way ever. It is also a dupe for the Anastasia Beverly Hill HD Brow Whiz!
BH Cosmetics, Illuminate by Ashley Tisdale Eyeshadow Palette in Night Goddess

IMG_4342IMG_4343

I have been using this palette all throughout these summer months and have been loving the palette. Even though this includes a blush, contour and highlight shade; they are not my favourite. However, the eyeshadow shades are super pigmented, easy to blend and are not too powder-y!
My Favourite Eyeshadow shades are Wild Child and Moon Light ❤ mixed together they are super sweet!
Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl Mascara

IMG_4347

This mascara besides coming from the brand called essence which is an animal cruelty free brand is an amazing product! The wand of the brush allows you to hit all your lashes from left to right! It is not clumpy and gives your lashes volume and length.
LIPS:

IMG_4350 (1)

IMG_4376

As you know I am an LIP LOVER!! So of course I could not just choose one lip shade ! Now I already did my favourite top ten lipsticks during the summer but I wanted to give 5 more a shot to star in my videos/blog posts!!

My favourite recently were:

Review – L’Oreal Infallible 24 Hour Foundation

Hi lovelies,

Happy Sunday !!

Hope you are having a great one!

Yesterday I uploaded a video on the L’Oreal Infallible 24 Hour Foundation.

This foundation has the following:-

  1. An AIR LIGHT texture with a DEMI MATTE FINISH.
  2. A SUPER GLIDING MATTIFYING FORMULA with a high water content for maximum comfort that lasts.
  3. It contains shine defy blotting spheres that act like blotting paper to mimic makeup artist gestures – instantly absorbing sweat and oil without disturbing color pigments.
  4. Medium Coverage
  5. Comes in 12 shades!!
  6. It promises to hide the appearance of fatigue and blemishes

IMG_1084IMG_1075IMG_1064

I love this foundation as it really does not leave your face looking solely matte left without a trace of shine!

The only problem I find with this foundation is that it does tend to Highlight my PORES .. so I have to make sure to blend well and try to hide them as much as possible !!! Since it is a matte foundation it dries quickly, so you have to be QUICK at applying it.

Hope you enjoy watching my video.

And I hope you enjoyed reading my blog post!!

Love Kezzie
