I must say I was very excited to try out these products. I actually wore them when I went to the ISLE OF MTV as I think they’re perfect makeup items for when you find yourselves attending a festival!

Here is my video showing you guys how the products actually test out!

I will now share with you some after thoughts since I filmed that video.

3INA – The UV Collections (Limited Edition) – Products –

3INA The Fluoro Cream Eyeshadow – Shade 401 – €10.95

IMG_0265

IMG_0268

The shade 401 is a fluorescent orange which looks great on the eyes especially if you have lighter eyes! I found that it dried down quite fast however, you have to be patient with this product.

Go in with a steady hand and pat the product with a flat brush onto the lids. It does go a little patchy but in all honesty it won’t show much as you can see from my photos!

IMG_0131

Be aware that this product will go on your lashes. Now this might have happened to me as I am no professional makeup artist and maybe I did not apply it correctly, but it went all over my lashes so I guess they were fluorescent as well. This was the product that was mostly fluorescent.

3INA The Fluoro Eye Pencil – €8.95

IMG_0266IMG_0270

I LOVE this eye pencil. It might not show that it is fluorescent but I love how it applies. I found that with this product I didn’t have any problems when I applied it on my upper lash line.

It’s so creamy, applied so smoothly and wasn’t patchy at all. It also lasted a long time on my lids and the product didn’t transfer.
3INA The Fluoro Palette – €13.95

IMG_0263

IMG_0264

This blush comes in such a fun pink/orange shade and applies so nicely onto your skin. I didn’t find that it was fluorescent on my skin but when I swatched it, it was.

I have enjoyed using this product even on an everyday simple makeup look. Adding this blush to an everyday makeup look, will make your look even more interesting. And I also love the packaging of this product especially because it comes with a mirror.
3INA The Fluoro Lip Gloss – Shade 200 – €9.95

IMG_0267

IMG_0271

This Lip Gloss has such a sweet scent. It reminded me of sweets that I used to eat when I was a little girl! It applies smoothly and isn’t too sticky as well.

IMG_0195

I liked the look it left me and again this doesn’t show to be fluorescent as much as the cream eyeshadow. It also lasts quite long!

IMG_0272
All 4 products tested under the fluorescent torch that 3INA so kindly sent me! From Left to Right – Cream Eyeshadow, Eyeliner, Blush and Lip Gloss. 

So those were my overall thoughts on 3INA’s UV Collection! If you are in Malta, you can visit 3INA at PAMA, Qormi, Mosta, Valletta and the Point, Sliema.

Have you tried out any of these products? If so, let me know in the comments down below!

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!

Lip Monthly – February 2017 Unbagging

Hi Lip Lovers,

How are you all doing? 

img_7923

Today, I shall be writing up a blog post all about the February 2017 Lip Monthly bag. Again, I received this bag so late and I really wanted to do a video about it. However, I think now it is too late to do one as the March bag I hope is going to be sent soon!

img_7944

This month’s bag retailed for $60. It came in a cute pink material type bag. I prefer these types of bags rather than the plastic ones we used to get before. They really had a weird scent to them!

img_7926

This month we got 3 lip products and 1 bonus eye shadow.

The Products were – 

Cargo Eyeshadow – Shade Cyprus – Retails for $16

img_7927

img_7929

img_7928

So this isn’t really a favourite shadow of mine. The formula is quite powder-y yet it isn’t too much. So it’s just the right amount of powder if you get what I am saying! The shade is like a bronze gold colour and I guess it would look great with a brown smokey eye look.

Model Co Lipstick – Shade Kitty – Retails for $17 

img_7933

img_7934

I love the scent that it has – smells of flowers! I also love the name of the lipstick. It has a creamy and shimmery formula and it sits lovely on the lips.

Cosmoholic Gloss – Unnamed – Retails for $10 

img_7931

img_7932

So the Model Co lipstick has a scent but this Cosmoholic Gloss has a richer vanilla and sweet smell! I love this one more. The shade is an everyday dark nude. It isn’t drying yet moisturising on the lips.

Sugar Crayon – Matte as Hell Crayon Lipstick – Shade Poison Ivy – Retails for $17

img_7936

img_7939

I love the colour – it’s a nice wine/plum shade. It isn’t patchy but settles nicely onto the lips. There isn’t any scent to it either.

So this month’s bag was a definite thumbs up. I preferred it to what I got in the Sweet Sparkle box by far!

Have you ever tried any of these products? Are you subscribed to Lip Monthly?

Thank you so much for reading!

Sweet Sparkle – February Unboxing – Kiss of Winter

Hi everyone,

Today’s blog post is all about the Sweet Sparkle February Box. The theme of this month was Kiss of Winter.

17035851_10210671095266190_262153532_o

I did not film a video however, I created a makeup look using all of the products and took pictures in between steps to write up a blog post.

I am really enjoying the fact that now we get a card with all the items written down on it plus a little description on each of them and the retail cost. This really helps in seeing whether the box is worth it!

16990878_10210671096226214_449770099_o
Before applying any of the products

Concrete Minerals – Mineral Eyeshadow – Shade Sweet Catrina – Retails for $8 

This is a 100% vegan and cruelty free product. It has quite a soft texture and is a pink-champagne shade that flatters all eye colors with a light shimmer.

16990137_10210671093226139_1625881541_o

My thoughts – I found that this isn’t really pigmented and you need to apply a lot of product if you want to get the colour onto your eyelid. Although, I have yet to try it with some sort of setting spray which might help the pigmentation pop.

Be a Bombshell – Baked Blush – Shade Teacher’s Pet – Retails for $6

17036623_10210671096746227_797663587_o

This is a baked mineral refined into a powder formula for the ideal baked blush. It enhances your cheekbones with its lightweight glimmer of pink and gold.

17035911_10210671092066110_1692375775_o

My thoughts – Since it has shimmers in it, your pore friends on your skin are going to speckle through and I personally do not like it! The colour is cute, the packaging is great; but as a product it isn’t my favourite.

Kokie Cosmetics – Dynamic Due Eyeliner – Retails for $8

16990114_10210671096866230_675105015_o

17015475_10210671098426269_814700988_o

The products entails to be a long wear, intense black and smudge free eyeliner. It is a double-ended liquid liner used to create a matte finished look that will last all night.

17036835_10210671098066260_98760527_o

My thoughts – I loved the eyebrow pencil we got from Kokie in January however, this isn’t a favourite product of mine. The felt tip pen side is great however, the other side isn’t. When I try to go over the line, the black becomes patchy. It is true that it doesn’t smudge and it is quite long lasting. However, it doesn’t create an intense black look.

Crown Cosmetics – Pro Volumizing Mascara – Retails for $4.99 

17016593_10210671094346167_9136488_o

The mascara entails to lengthen, volumise and define lashes. The large wand akes your lashes to new lengths without clumping them.

17035881_10210671092026109_557902020_o

17016618_10210671096386218_247952537_o

My thoughts – The wand is pretty harsh on the edges so it isn’t my favourite wand. However, I love the effect of this mascara on my lashes. It doesn’t clump them together and the formula doesn’t transfer to my eyelids.

LA Splash – Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick – Shade Cookie Dough – Retails for $14

17015146_10210671097466245_624331066_o

The shade is dessert like and it has a velvet matte formula and is waterproof. It also exfoliates, moisturises and applies for a long lasting sultry look.

16990764_10210671095186188_178114170_o

My thoughts – I love the rose gold packaging it is just adorable! The dofer applicator is perfect to help us achieve the perfect lip look. The smell though isn’t my favourite as it has this weird scent! But it really does last long, it isn’t patchy and it isn’t drying!

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

Max Factor Malta Event

Hi everyone, 

I hope you are having a fantastic Sunday.

Yesterday I stopped by the Max Factor Malta pop up stand at Tigne, Point in Malta.

I also met up with Stefy Pugislivech who is a well known Maltese Blogger/Youtuber. I personally love watching her videos. It was such a pleasure to meet her, she also gave me some of her opinions on various products from Max Factor and was very helpful.

The only products I honestly have tried from Max Factor was the Face Finity All Day Flawless 3 in 1 Foundation, which is one of my all time favourite foundation. I still reach for it as it has great coverage.

I have also tried the Creme Puff Face Powder which sometimes I like and sometimes I don’t. I guess you can say I have a love and hate relationship with it. Sometimes I see that it set all my foundation in place and gives a nice finished makeup look however, other times I see that the foundation would have moved so the coverage decreased.

I don’t know if it makes sense. This also could be because I am still learning on how to apply makeup everyday!

Screen Shot 2016-11-27 at 19.55.10.png

(Image taken from www.maxfactor.com)

But I have been seeing lots of reviews on 2 of their new products which are on my Wishlist. And they are from their latest face range – Miracle Touch. Yesterday, I had the opportunity to swatch products from this range and others; and Stefy was so kind and showed me some of these products.

Screen Shot 2016-11-27 at 19.56.18.png

(Image taken from www.maxfactor.com)

One product that I swatched was the Smooth Miracle Primer. When I swatched it against my skin it felt super soft and had a thick consistency. I would like to try it out and see how it would look on my skin and see if it will minimise my pores, as that is what my main skin issue is when applying foundation.

Screen Shot 2016-11-27 at 19.57.20.png

(Image taken from www.maxfactor.com)

From the Miracle Touch range, there’s also a new Miracle Match Foundation. This has a medium to full coverage. It should create a natural, dewy complexion and blurs imperfections. I hope to try out this foundation with the primer and see what the results are.

Screen Shot 2016-11-27 at 19.58.07.png

(Image taken from www.maxfactor.com)

There’s also a new Miracle Touch Foundation. It does’t come in a liquid form but is more of a solid to liquid formula and comes in a tub. It should help in covering uneven skin textures. Personally, I think I would prefer to try out the Miracle Match one over this one.

Screen Shot 2016-11-27 at 19.59.38.png

Besides the new range, the Max Factor pop up stand was also showing the new mascara which has a wand that I have never tried before. I have heard mixed reviews about this but I guess you never know unless you try. And the mascara I am talking about is the False Lash Epic Mascara.

A product that I also want to try out one of is from their Marilyn Monroe Lipstick range. I know right, a lipstick that I haven’t tried! And I am supposed to be a lipstick junkie?

Stefy was wearing Cabernet which I loved. I also swatched Berry Red (as seen on above photo).

15231628_10209794571433642_645186349_o

I also swatched a lipstick from the Lip Finity Long Lasting Lipstick range (I forgot the name!). I liked how it swatched.

I have yet to try out both these lipstick ranges.

I do hope you enjoyed reading my post.

Have you tried any of these products that I mentioned? If so, can you share your thoughts about them?

Hope you have a lovely week ahead!

Love Kezia
