Blogmas Day 6 – Gift Ideas for HER for Xmas.

Hi everyone!!

I hope everyone is doing well!! It’s Thursday which means that tomorrow is FRIDAY and hello weekend!! I am exhausted so I cannot wait for some Netflix and Chill over the weekend. But until the weekend comes we still have two more days of the week! 

Today’s blogmas post is 5 Gift Ideas for HER. So here is what I personally think a girl would enjoy, I am not going to focus on one area such as makeup but will try and share ideas which are on various interests that a girl might have. 

#1 – Instagrammable Letter Board

I have seen them all around instagram, in backgrounds of videos on Youtube and well they just make a photo. And it’s also a nice way where a person can express a quote they love or a feeling they are having and hang it in their room. My mum/nan – mum ordered it from ebay but then nan paid her for it cos she couldn’t find one from Malta – got it for me and I love it!! You can easily find one from Ebay, check it out now

#2 – Sudio Earphones/Headphones

Sudio is a website that sells earphones and headphones. They are of great quality, wireless and have microphones embedded in them! I have reviewed some of there earphones you can check out my blog post all about them right here – https://kezziescorner.com/2018/10/16/my-thoughts-on-sudio-com-earphones/ So if you know someone who loves listening to music and is in need of new earphones/headphones, I would recommend Sudio! I also have a promo code (I don’t get anything from it, it’s just for you guys!!) you could use to get 15% off your order. Simply enter KezziesCorner at checkout!! 

#3 – Jewellery 

You can never go wrong with jewellery. Mvintage have some nice options of what you can add to a necklace and lots of lovely pendants. Also, layer necklaces are a thing so maybe you can look into that too as she could have days where she wears one necklace and days where she layers 2 or 3! I think something simple, cute and small such as a necklace is always sweet to receive! Mvintage also have a section on their website for gift ideas so might be cute to check it out here. (P.s. They have a branch opened in Malta at the Point, Sliema) 

#4 – Watch 

Ok so another cute idea would be getting a girl a watch. I love watches I think they add a statement to the outfit. Mind you I wasn’t always like that! Luke got me a watch and ever since have been wearing one when I go out! And I recently tried out a Daniel Wellington watch and I love it! They have a variety of styled watches that come in the cutest packaging! 

#5 – Makeup – Drugstore vs. High End

Ok, so I kind of had to mention this, cos like I am a girl who likes receiving makeup! And I have a few choices she might like this Christmas. If she is someone who enjoys drugstore makeup, Makeup Revolution always have nice gift sets you can check out that your girl/friend might enjoy! Chocolate bar palettes are a good option too if you want to get her some of them too, they are inexpensive but are of good quality. Check out my video where I unboxed some of the latest chocolate bar palettes right here

Or you can then opt for a high end choice. You can check out toe see what Cult Beauty have but something that may catch a girl’s eye right now is the Huda the New Nude Palette. It’s one of the top palettes being sold on cult beauty at the minute, so yeah you could try that! (Cult Beauty ship to Malta 🙂 )

Ok so those were my Gift Ideas for HER! I really hope you enjoyed reading this and if you have any comments leave them down below!! Thank you so much for reading and for your amazing support!! 

Love Kezia

Blogmas Day 2 – Cranberries & Chocolate Palette – Review

Hi everyone, 

How are you all doing? Are you excited to see more of Blogmas? I thank everyone who has checked out Blogmas Day 1 already, and for those of you who are just joining me on Day 2 … WELCOME!! 

Today’s blogmas is all about an eyeshadow palette I recently received in the I Heart Chocolate Vault from Makeup Revolution. I had done a video on this box, you can check it out RIGHT HERE. And basically, in this box you will find this palette. However, I now know that you can buy this palette separately too! 

I have done a video showing you exactly how the palette tested out and what not, but since I am doing a blog post a day, I will include the videos I upload on my Youtube Channel as part and parcel of my Blogmas … you know what I am saying? 

Also, my first XMAS giveaway went up on my fb page, you can check it out right here – https://www.facebook.com/KezziesCorner/posts/1136505859850828

My thoughts on the Cranberries and Chocolate Palette – 

I love the packaging of the Chocolate palettes, and I love the shade this one comes in! I think it’s a very christmas-sy colour, so this palette is perfect for a blog post, don’t you agree? I also like how the shadows come with names and you get a great sized mirror!

The palette has a mixture of shimmers and mattes. It also has this gorgeous black shade called Rich which is perfect for that smokey eye. It also has this beautiful dark pink/berry shade called Wine which is a great shade for the crease and a berry look! Which is like the look I did in my video! 

The matte shadows worked out well and are so pigmented and blend nicely even with each other. Yet the shimmer shades I had to work with them more. Number one I cannot use them without wetting my brush. Example Tasteful worked well all over the lid applying it with a flat brush which was wet. Yet gratification which is the white shimmer shade didn’t go on as pigmented as i would have hoped in my inner corner even though my brush was wet. 

So I wish the shimmer shades worked out better but apart from that, I love this palette. It’s a perfect autumn/winter palette with a variety of brown, pink, shimmer shades and even a dark brown and black! And if you’re looking for an inexpensive palette to create a berry toned look or a brown toned too you can use this for those looks!!

The makeup look I created using this palette!

Here is my video if you would like to see how it tested out – 

Thank you so much for reading!! Have you tried this palette out or are you interested in doing so? Let me know in the comments down below!!

Happy Blogmas Day 2!

Golden Rose – HD Foundation & The Diamond Breeze Collection

Hi Lovelies, 

How are we all doing? I hope you are having an amazing weekend!!

Today’s blog post is all about Golden Rose and some of their new products as well as one of their latest collections – the Diamond Breeze Collection!

IMG_5334

I would like to thank Beauty Cosmos Malta for the products! If you are from Malta, you can purchase Golden Rose Cosmetics from Beauty Cosmos found in Fgura! You could also visit their website by CLICKING HERE to see their products as well as order online (This feature is available worldwide!).

Here is a video showing you how the products that I will be mentioning in this post test out –

Products mentioned and a little about them –

IMG_5377

HD Foundation

This HD foundation is just amazing! it offers High Coverage as it is a high definition soft focus foundation. It also helps provide a flawless finish and has SPF 15! It retails for €14.25 and comes in a variety of shades!

I tested it out for a whole day and found that by the end of the day my face was slightly oily so I needed to mattify it with a setting powder to set everything in place! But overall am happy with this foundation and as you saw in my video I loved how it immediately covered my red spots so well!

HD Concealer

Like the foundation this concealer also has SPF 15 which I find to be so interesting! I don’t think I had ever had a concealer with SPF or if I did, I never noticed! This concealer retails for €7.50 and helps create a soft focus effect under the eye because of its unique formula which diffuses light to brighten the skin, soften and blur the look of fine lines and imperfections and gives a smooth finish to the skin!

Once I applied the concealer, it blended and covered my under eyes well but it did crease a little! I wish that it didn’t come packaged with a sponge where you have to click for the concealer to come out like a pen but other than that I quite like this product!

Diamond Breeze Liquid Eyeshadow

IMG_5339

The shades I tried were 24k Gold and Iconic Copper which is a lovely dusty red! These retail for €6.50 each and come in other shades! I love how they are so pigmented and dry up fast reducing the chances of it transferring above your lids! And if you saw my video they blended nicely into each other. Their great pigments to create a lovely metallic look! The Iconic Copper shade really gives me Autumn vibes so cannot wait to add it to an autumn look of mine with other shadows!

Diamond Breeze Shimmering Eye pencil

IMG_5378

The pencil that I tried was in the shade Bronze Sparkle which was a lovely deep gold shade and these retail for €5.50 each! I applied this on my waterline and it applied well even brightening up my eyes!

Diamond Breeze Glitter Top Coat Mascara in 24K Gold

IMG_5342

I never tried glitter mascara until now! It retails for €7 and I first applied normal black mascara and then I topped up my lashes with this gorgeous glitter mascara! You can see in my video how the glitters do actually transfer on my lashes! I was worried because of the glitters getting into my eyes throughout the day but that was not the case and it was easily removed at night!

Diamond Breeze Shimmering Highlight

IMG_5338

I tried the highlight in the shade called Champagne and this retails for €7.50. I loved this highlight and thought it blended into my skin easily and smoothly! It did not intensify my pores on my cheeks and was happy with how it looked! It made my skin glow-y just like I liked it!

Diamond Breeze Shimmering Lip Topper

IMG_5341

I love these lip toppers which are like lip glosses. I tried the shades Golden Nude and Nude Sparkle, both had speckles of glitter! They retail for €6.50 each! I loved Nude Sparkle on its own rather than applying on top of another lipstick. I love their scent as well, it reminds me of the same scents they have on their golden rose matte liquid lipsticks! I love the description they give on the website for this, to make your lips shine like a diamond, love that!

Diamond Breeze Shimmering Lipstick 

IMG_5336
Left to Right – 24k Gold and Russet Sparkle

IMG_5337
Plum Sparkle

This set of lipsticks all come with glitter speckles and I tried the shades Plum Sparkle, Russet Sparkle and 24K Gold. I think 24K Gold would look lovely on top of a dark purple matte lipstick applying the gold lipstick on the centre (sidenote for future makeup look during the winter months!!) I love the plum sparkle shade and they have a hyper shimmering finish! These retail for €6.50 each !!

Diamond Breeze Shimmering Body Glow 

40483851_513776992383934_7912416312943443968_n.jpg

This shimmering body glow adds gold glitters to your skin! It is very creamy and has a light texture and can be easily applied and dries quickly! I noticed how it blends so nicely into the skin, giving you a glow-y look! This retails for €11!

Diamond Breeze Shimmering Nail Colour – Russet Sparkle

IMG_5335

I also received a nail polish and have tried it out, it is a gorgeous orange shade perfect for the autumn months!

IMG_5374.jpg
Here was the finished look I created using these products!

Those were the products from Golden Rose that I had to share with you all! Which product did you like the most? Have you tried any of these products? Comment down below and thank you so much for reading!! 

Thank you once again to Beauty Cosmos Malta for providing me with these lovely products!!

See you guys next time !! 

Love Kezia

My thoughts on Pepsi & Mentos Lip Balms …

Hi everyone, 

I know it has been a while since I uploaded a post on this website but just in case you aren’t following my FACEBOOK/INSTAGRAM, I just finished my dissertation and returned back to Stirling for a little to hand it in. Now that that’s handed in, I can focus again on KezziesCorner whilst looking for a job!! I hope you are all doing well and I have missed you all!

40330217_649724012087933_8696078485313028096_n

Today’s blog post is about some lip balms that Brandnation sent to me from Amber House. I got to try out lip balms from Pepsi and Mentos! Now that the summer months are soon coming to an end, my lips will start drying up more than usual, therefore, having a lip balm everywhere I go is essential!

40366056_535504430236602_392673084458401792_n

Here’s the Pepsi lip balm which to be honest I struggled to figure out how to open it, only when I did, I found myself to shake my head at my silly-ness for not figuring it out earlier haha !! The scent is a direct Pepsi one and it feels comfortable to have on your lips ! If you love Pepsi then I would recommend this lip balm!!

Mentos also have their very own lip balms and I got to try out the Strawberry and Mint Flavours. These lip balms are not only delicious as they are the exact replica of their flavours scents but are also moisturising. I love the strawberry one and is a must have in my bag!

Hope you enjoyed this flavourful blog post! Have you ever tried these flavoured lip balms? Comment down below and thank you so much for reading my post!

Thank you once again to Brandnation and Amber House!

See you guys in my next blog post!

Love Kezia

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!

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

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!!

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

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!

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!

3INA – Just for Fun Collection – Review

Hi Lovelies, 

How are you all doing today? Hope you are all having an amazing week!

IMG_4581

Today’s blog post is all about a new COLLECTION from 3INA. I have done several videos and blog posts about previous collections from 3INA! I love the creativity in which the products from 3INA help me explore. I love creating new looks with their fun collections and ironically the name of the collection I will be reviewing today is called Just For Fun!

I would like to thank 3INA Malta and Hudson Group Malta for these products that I will be reviewing today.

IMG_4584

You can visit 3INA right here – https://mt.3ina.com/mt and follow their social media to stay up to date with the brand.

3INA is an animal cruelty free brand and is based in a number of different countries! In Malta you can find 3INA at – The Point in Sliema, Valletta, Pama Shopping Village in Mosta and Qormi (next to Kiabi).

Here is the video I did showing you the products being applied –

The Just For Fun Collection consists of – 

The Eyeshadow Palette – 105 – €14.95

IMG_4588

This palette comes with six cute shades, perfect for Spring! I love the pastel shimmery shades! It is a hyper-pigmented palette and comes with shadows that are easy to blend! Perfect for Festival Makeup Looks!

IMG_4589

I love the look I created in from my video! I mixed 5 out of the 6 shades to come out with a lovely, spring worthy look!

The 2 in 1 eyeliner pen – €8.95

IMG_4590

I love this eyeliner and it has become on my favourite eyeliner pens! It has a dual-width paddle applicator that helps with adjusting to different widths, allowing you to draw graphic shapes and bold designs.

 

 

Now I did not experiment with it like that , but I will try again soon! But I loved using it to create a simple winged eyeliner! I found that it made applying eyeliner even simpler!

Just for Fun Highlighter – €12.95

IMG_4594

This is a liquid highlighter with a pearly and luminescent finish. It gives out the cutest baby pink highlight shade ever! It blends nicely and gives out a dewy, ethereal glow that can easily be blended with foundation for an all-over shimmer.

IMG_4595

I loved using it as my cheekbone highlight but will definitely be using it on my collar bone in summer for that nice looking healthy glow!

The Longwear Lipstick – Shade 521 – €7.95

IMG_4599

I love the formula of these lipsticks, I have tried them out before. With some shades you have to be slightly patient to get that lovely deep colour without any patches.

IMG_4600

IMG_4514

Once it dries I promise it will give you the most pigmented lip colour! This shade is a cute hot pink perfect for the summer! I absolutely loved it!

The Longwear Lipstick – 522 – €7.95

IMG_4596

This is a gorgeous purple metallic shade. However, it was slightly more difficult to apply than the pink but the end result was a nice metallic lip colour!

IMG_4598

IMG_4536

I loved it with this look. The formula of these lipsticks is soft and creamy and they come in the most lovely scents! 

What do you think of the finished look?

IMG_4561

Thank you so much for reading! Do you love 3INA and their fun products? Comment down below, would love to know your thoughts!

Thank you once again to 3INA Malta and Hudson Group Malta for the products – I truly appreciate them and am so grateful!
