Testing PRIMARK Makeup – FULL FACE Makeup Look

Hi everyone, 

IMG_0065

This week I uploaded a video all about Primark Makeup. Back in April I picked up some products in the hopes of making a video and a blog post like this … so here goes!

You can watch the video right here of me applying Primark makeup and you can see all my first reactions of the products too.

Now I shall be writing a little about each of these products, after having tried them on other occasions and saw how long they lasted.

Products I bought – 
Primark Liquid Foundation –  Shade – Cool Sand – £2.50

IMG_0098

I did not like the smell of this foundation, it reminded me of sunscreen. It is a very water based formula and applies well with a foundation brush. If your skin is not prepped well then this foundation will bring out your pores so much and create cake face.

IMG_9948

It states that it is a medium coverage foundation. I find that to not be true, I believe it is more of a light coverage. It is an oil free formula and it dries to a semi matte finish. After having applied this product more than once, I have noticed that when it dries to the point it can, it still leaves my face feeling sticky. Nothing some powder cannot fix, but still that’s a point I wanted to share.

Was it worth the £2.50 overall? Meh, but I prefer this than the stick foundation. 
Primark Foundation Stick – Shade – Sand – £2

IMG_0083

IMG_0084

I got this in the WRONG shade. But funnily enough it blended nicely on the skin and it didn’t look that dark on me, as you can see in the video. It’s texture is quite thick, so you need to blend it well or else it will look so cakey on the skin.
Primark Stick Concealer – Shade – Ivory – £0.90

IMG_0096

For only 90p I LOVED this concealer. I think it blended nicely, even though my under eye lines were still a little visible. But it settled nicely and lasted long too. I mean for only 90p I would say it’s a good enough result.
Primark Mattifying Pressed Powder – Shade – Sand – £2

IMG_0068

IMG_0070

At first I thought that this powder wasn’t going to blend well into the skin but after using my brush and brushing it into my skin, it blended well. I liked the after effect that this powder gave on my skin and after using this product it did not leave my skin feeling sticky.

I think it’s a good enough powder for only £2!
Primark Bronze Glow Bronzing Powder – Sundipped – £2

IMG_0080

IMG_0081

I love this bronzer, I have used it multiple times since I filmed this video. It is a lovely chalky brown, very natural and settles so nicely onto the skin.

I have enjoyed using this to create a sunkissed look.
Primark Strobe and Glow Cream Highlighting Palette£4

IMG_0085

IMG_0086

So the formula of this product is quite water-y and sticky … maybe Kylie Jenner stole the idea from Primark when she created her Wet Set of highlighters? I don’t know as I don’t have that Wet Set but this highlighting palette reminded me of that.

IMG_0087

Besides the formula, I liked how the highlights stayed on my skin. They aren’t that pigmented so you would need to go back and forth to create the highlight that you crave. But I like the effect of these highlights. Do I think it was worth £4 from Primark? No.
Primark PRO Tight Lining Pen£3

IMG_0092

IMG_0091

This was a FAIL and it was £3! I tried tight lining with it and nothing comes out. It’s so strange as when I swatch the pencil on my hand, the product comes out and there’s a lovely black line but then when I come to using it on my eyes … NOTHING.

IMG_0093

I tried creating a cat eye look, shaking it, pressing when I applied it but still not enough product was coming out. Therefore, this is such a FAIL!!

 
Primark Volumising Mascara£1

IMG_0088

IMG_0090

I love this mascara. It doesn’t add volume to my lashes but it does lengthen them and separates them really well. And it lasts long and the product does not transfer on my lids! For only a POUND this product is GREAT!
Primark Lip Liner Pencil£1 in Desert Sand

IMG_0094

IMG_0095

I love the shade this lip liner comes in. It’s a cute peachy pink. It applies really well and lasts long on the lips. It isn’t that patchy and it isn’t drying as well. Again, for a pound I think this product passed my test.

IMG_9950
Primark Long Lasting Lipstick £2.50

IMG_0072

IMG_0075

I don’t know what the name of this shade of the lipstick I got is but I like the colour. It is a purple pink dark shade. It isn’t patchy and the colour applies well. The shape of the bullet lipstick made it easier to apply on my lips.

It didn’t last long as I had to retouch it throughout the day but I don’t hate it. Would I buy it again? I don’t think so as you can find other options from the drugstore.

Those were the products I tried and here is the finished makeup look that I created during the video –

IMG_9972

Overall, Primark makeup are packaged so nicely, and some items are hits whilst others are total fails. I quite enjoyed testing these out and I guess we all wanna save a little.

IMG_0066

In my opinion you should try and get yourselves to Primark, if you live in the UK or anywhere else that has Primark; and try out their range of makeup. You might be surprised what you can find at such a little price! 

Have you ever tried any makeup from Primark? What are your thoughts? Comment down below!! 

Thank you so much for reading!

Collective Makeup Haul

Hi Makeup lovers,

How are you all doing today?

I simply had to come here and share with you all my latest video! This time it was all about the latest makeup products to my collection.

Now I purchased these all throughout autumn/winter so I did not purchase these all at one go!!

Here were the products I purchased – 

MAC Retro Matte – Ruby Woo

A perfect red matte lipstick – love the red shade of this lipstick and it is one of the most popular shades of Mac lipsticks!
MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick – Topped with Brandy

MAC recently came out with new shades in their Retro Matte liquid lipstick line and I had to pick this shade! It’s a lovely a deep brown shade.
Purchased from Cult Beauty –
Pixi – It’s Judy Time Eyeshadow Palette

I love this eyeshadow palette. The shadows are very pigmented and last all day. They are also easy to blend.
NYX Strobe Genius Illumination Palette

I love this palette. I love the powder highlights and they have a lovely finish.
Purchased from NYX Malta –
NYX HD Photogenic Foundation

I tried this once and was a little disappointed as I had high hopes for this foundation! I thought it would have high coverage but it isn’t so. In my opinion it’s more of a foundation with medium coverage. Will try to test it out more.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Stockholm & London

I love the formula of these lip creams. They don’t last long but they are so small so you can easily take them with you wherever you go to reapply.
NYX HD Photogenic Concealer – Fair

I love this concealer. It stays nicely on the under eye regions of the face and is long lasting. It also has a lovely finish and doesn’t crease when set well with the right powder!
Sleek – Precious Metals Highlighting Palette

I love this highlighting palettes. I love the cream highlight and just by using my fingertips I apply it to my highest parts of my cheekbones. It just have the perfect golden shimmer highlights!
Purchased from ladymakeup.eu

Don’t forget that I have a 10% discount code that you can use at checkout – KEZIA10
NYX High Voltage Lipstick – Wine and Dine

Love the shade of this lipstick – such a gorgeous deep wine.
MUA – Velvet Lip Lacquer – Passion

This is a gorgeous coral peach shade – perfect for the summer season!
L’Oreal True Match Foundation

Ever since I tried this foundation I absolutely fell in love with. It is such a lovely foundation with buildable coverage! Lasts for a while but you will definitely need to retouch it after a couple of hours. It is also not heavy on the skin.
L’Oreal Color Caresse Shine Stain – Berry Persistent and Lilac Everafter

I don’t like these much – they are very patchy and sticky.
Golden Rose Lipstick – Shade 12

Have’t tried this out on the lips yet!
Catrice All Matt Plus Foundation

I haven’t tried this one out yet but when I do I will surely let you all know!
Catrice Liquid Camouflage Concealer – Porcelain

I have been loving this concealer! It sits well and doesn’t crease! However I prefer the NYX one over this.
Catrice Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder – Shade 10 Light Infusion

This is such a pretty highlight and you can work it out to be an intense one too!
Catrice All Matt Shine Control Powder

This powder works great and I can mattify my foundation and help it last longer. It has a lovely finish!
Purchased from Flormar Malta –
Flormar Matt Touch Foundation

I love this foundation – love that it has ingredients that also helps the skin! I love the finish of this foundation and it isn’t tacky either!
Flormar Loose Powder

This powder works well with the foundation from Flormar! It just sets everything so nicely and helps it last longer.
Flormar Ultra Black Eyeliner

I am embarrassed to say this but I haven’t tried this out yet.
Flormar Silk Matte Liquid Lipstick – Dark Violet and Fall Rose

I love these matte lipsticks – they honestly last long. They don’t have a strong scent to them but I love the finish look of these 2 lipsticks!
Purchased from Kiko (Rome) –
Kiko Universal Fit Hydrating Foundation

This is a great everyday natural foundation. It is a little sticky at first but do not worry it will settle down nicely!
Kiko 30 days extension night treatment booster

I haven’t tried this out yet!
Kiko Volume Attraction Mascara

I love the effect of these mascaras, they really lengthen and volumise my lashes!
Kiko Matte Lipstick – Shade 319 Velvet Passion

This I actually haven’t tried out yet!
Purchased from Wycon (Rome) –
Wycon Midnight Holiday Blush – Vintage Babe

OMG I love this blush. Besides the fact that it has amazing packaging, it also blends nicely on the skin! I love the two pink shades of the blush they blend nicely together.
Wycon Prime & Fine Powder

I love this powder, it was one of my monthly favourites of April. I just love the finished look it gives!
Wycon Champagne Party Lips – Monroe

This lipstick is goals – it just have a lovely red shade to it – the perfect signature to a Marilyn Monroe look.

Wycon Liquid Lipstick – Plum Call, All about Love and Wine Word

I love these lipsticks – they really last long and has a lovely finishing look!

Sephora Makeup Haul + Reaching 2k subscribers on my YT Channel

Hi everyone!! 

So excited to share this with you!! 

I cannot believe I have reached 2k subscribers on my Youtube Channel – KezziesCorner!

I am truly so happy for everyone who has subscribed to my channel! 

SO THANK YOU EVERYONE!! 

Now, today as you know it’s Wednesday and therefore time for a NEW VIDEO!

I was so excited to go to my first ever Sephora when I went on holiday to Rome! I never had been so it was such a great feeling to be browsing in a Sephora shop!! We don’t get brands like Tarte, Benefit or Too Faced in Malta so I treated myself a little!

Here is a Sephora Haul from what I got when I went to Rome!

Products mentioned – 

Tarte – Tartelette in Bloom

17035841_10210687940167302_2117944743_o

17091134_10210687939007273_1130047664_o

17091002_10210687939847294_186432085_o

I love this eyeshadow palette! It has such gorgeous shimmery and matte shades! I actually got this off amazon prime as there wasn’t the brand Tarte in the Rome Sephora!
Too Faced – Too Faced Christmas In New York Holiday 2016 Collection

Grand Hotel Cafe – Limited Edition

This is such a cute palette set! I thought it was a great bargain to get! I have to be honest and say I haven’t yet tried out any of these palettes as I simply have others to try out! But alas I will have to try them out soon enough! One thing I must say and I am sure you are all aware about it – they come in such gorgeous scents!
Peppermint Mocha

Gingerbread Coffee

Eggnog Latte Eyeshadow Palettes

Better Than Sex Mascara

17036149_10210687940727316_720834106_o

I also got this Mascara in the set! I haven’t tried it out yet!
Too Faced – Born this Way Foundation

I haven’t tried out this foundation yet. I think I am too scared to open it as once I do I know I will love it and won’t stop using it!

Sephora – Face Masks

17091111_10210687939727291_754917924_o

I have heard so much about these masks. So far I have only used the Algae Mask and I left a review about it on my blog already – Sephora – Algae Face Mask ReviewSephora – Algae Face Mask Review
Sephora – Pearl Eye Mask
Sephora – Avocado Face Mask
Sephora – Algae Face Mask
Benefit Goof Proof Brow Pencil

I love this brow pencil it applies so easily to my brows! Yes it was a little pricey but I guess for the brand, the packaging and the quality it was worth it!
Beauty Blender

17016190_10210687940527311_1278010801_o

OMG – I am in LOVE with this blending sponge! I never have tried this before and I have only used the Real Techniques Miracle Sponge. Now that is good but the Beauty Blender is just perfect! It truly does apply your makeup flawlessly !! Yes it was €18 but I think I will have to buy this again once this gets old!
Sephora – Triple Action Cleansing Water

17101223_10210687937847244_137788109_o

I don’t quite like this! It doesn’t come with a pump which I know, it’s the travel size one but they can do a mini pump with it! No harm would be done! But I don’t think it’s the best micellar water out there!

I really hope you enjoyed this blog post and the video! Have you ever tried any of these products? Comment down below!

Thank you so much for reading and watching my videos! Thank you so much for subscribing to my channel! And thank you also for following my blog!

Collective Makeup Haul

Hi everyone !!

So today I decided to upload a BONUS VIDEO. As my upload schedule is every wednesday’s on my youtube channel – http://www.youtube.com/KezziesCorner !!

But I decided to upload this today as I filmed this I think three weeks ago and it was long over due !!

In today’s video I decided on showing you guys what I recently got from BH Cosmetics and Essence.

It was my first time ordering from BH Cosmetics and I got the Carli Bybel 14 Color Eyeshadow & Highlighter Palette and I also got BH Liquid Foundation. However this I got it in the incorrect shade!

Then I also showed you what I recently purchased from Essence. Essence is a German Brand that does makeup which is not tested on animals !! YEY!
