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

Screen Shot 2017-11-23 at 12.38.27

Here is what the November Beauty Plait consisted and my review on the products –

#1 Narciso Rodriguez for her – Body Cream

IMG_2596

This body cream comes in the cutest packaging and it is going to look great on my vanity. The cream states that it should leave the skin nourished and intensely scented. It is rich, creamy and has a smooth texture. It leaves the skin feeling silky and has Vitamin E. 

IMG_2597

I liked the packaging of the product more than I liked the actual product. The scent for me is too too strong but it does leave the skin feeling smooth and silky.

#2 Shiseido Bio-Performance Glow Revival Cream

IMG_2600

This cream states to resolve multiple skin concerns and leaves the skin with a fresh glow! It is a velvety texture and melts on the skin. It helps maintain the ideal moisture balance for a radiant glow.

IMG_2602

In my opinion I liked how it moisturised my skin and left my skin with a glow however, when using the product I noticed it was a little sticky. All in all I enjoyed how it left my skin and created a good base before applying my makeup. I did not notice the product to have any impact on my skin’s imperfections.

#3 Versace Bright Crystal

IMG_2598

This fragrance comes in the cutest little bottle. It has a Floral scent that is, “voluptuous for the Versace Woman who is strong and confident yet feminine, sensual and glamorous!”

I love the scent and was so happy to have it in my Beauty Plait!

#4 Makeup Studio Eyeshadow Moondust in the shade Green Galaxy

IMG_2593

IMG_2594

IMG_2595

The Moondust Eyeshadow is a baked eyeshadow and Makeup Studio has them in a range of colours. All of these shades have a black or pastel undertone so as to help the intensity of the colour and the glitter increase!

23949493_10213049058793792_685472923_o
What the shade Green Galaxy looks like on the eyes …

I loved this eyeshadow and I loved the shade I got! I think this is a perfect shade that I can use for a Christmas Makeup Look paired with a red lip! The shadow blends well however, there is a lot of fall out so I would suggest that when using this shadow to first apply your eye makeup and then move on to your face makeup.

#5 Invisibobble The Traceless Hair Ring

IMG_2625

I really love my invisibobble it just makes using a simple hair tie boring now. What’s better is that it comes with a little chain and it also has the Breast Cancer Awareness logo, which I think makes it even more special.

IMG_2627

The November Beauty Plait also included a Franks Discount!! That is amazing!! I will be using mine when I come down to Malta for Christmas!!

Here is the video I did unboxing the products –

To conclude … if I had to choose which box I preferred between the October or November box, I would have to say October box in my opinion was better because it included mostly makeup products and one hair product. But that is my opinion.

What did you receive in your November Beauty Plait? Comment down below!! 

Anywho’s I best get going!! I really hope you enjoyed reading!! Thank you so much for doing so!!

Love Kezia

Cut Crease Makeup Tutorial ft. SOPH X Makeup Revolution

Hi everyone, 

I am currently in Malta for a little trip but on Sunday will fly back to Stirling. But I couldn’t miss my weekly blog post! And like I wrote, this week you got two blog posts and not just one!

So here is the second one of the week!

Screen Shot 2017-11-17 at 15.54.48

It is all about a Cut Crease Makeup Tutorial using Soph X Makeup Revolution’s Eyeshadow and Highlighter Palette.

IMG_2441

I love both products. The eyeshadow palette has a variety of colour choices and you can create so many looks out of it! It is only £10! That is such a great price! The packaging is so cute too however, the open it, it is such a hassle!!

IMG_2443

The shadows applies well, there is some fall out so if you prefer to not do your foundation before your eye makeup then do so! But I honestly don’t mind and you can brush off the fall out and just re apply some concealer. The shadows blend well and are so pigmented.  I used the shade fairy lights which is a shimmer shade all over my lid, and I dampened my brush to up the effect of that shadow and it worked out great!

IMG_2447

IMG_2451

I also loved the highlighter palette that comes with a variety of highlight shades. They are so pigmented and you should definitely mix and match to brighten up that highlight!! The highlighter palette is £8. All in all I really loved using both palettes and think that they are worth the buy!!

Here is the makeup tutorial –

Here are the products I used in the makeup tutorial on the video!

IMG_2461.JPG

  • Essence Colour Correcting Liquid Concealer in Green
  • Benefit Porefessional Primer
  • Benefit Porefessional Pore Minimizing makeup

Thank you so much for reading!!

Happy Weekend!

Testing out Beauty Big Bang Makeup Products!!

Hi everyone, 

How are you all doing? I am having a break from doing assignments and so here I am coming to you with a NEW blog post!! 

Screen Shot 2017-10-26 at 13.47.44

Today’s blog post is all about some makeup products from BeautyBigBang! I would like to thank BeautyBigBang for giving me another opportunity to test out their products. And stay tuned as some time soon there will be another video/blog post testing out some new lipsticks!! So thank you BeautyBigBang!!

Make sure to visit their website which is full of makeup products from eyeshadows to lipsticks to makeup brushes!! They also sell other items such as nail products!!

All products are at a cheap price and I also have a Discount Code you guys can use!! Simply enter KEZZ10 at checkout!!

You could also check out BeautyBigBang’s social media right here –

I have already done one other video testing out some of their metallic liquid lipsticks, you can check that video out by CLICKING HERE. (And a blog post on those products is RIGHT HERE).

Today’s products are not only lipsticks but I tried out Mermaid Brushes and an eyeshadow palette. Here were my thoughts on the products –

The Mermaid Brushes 

IMG_1592

This is a set of 5 brushes, they retail for £5.34 and they look aesthetically so pretty! I love their unique shape and the bristles are soft and gentle! My favourite brush out of them all was the blending brush.

IMG_1588

I loved using that with the eyeshadows. The rest of the brushes are alright but I think I would simply prefer to just keep them on my vanity making it look even cuter with the brushes!!

The Eyeshadow Palette 

IMG_1679

This palette comes with 40 different shades and retails for £6.10 only!! I think this is an ideal palette for those makeup lovers who are just going to start using makeup – perfect for beginners. They are slightly powdery and you would think that they are pigmented but once you are blending them with the brush the shade is sort of brushed off and you have to continuously go back and forth with them.

IMG_1603
The eyeshadow look I created using this palette!

But hey at least you increase your blending skills!! I love the colour variety and with all of the shades you can create a number of different looks!! Also, there are 2 palettes you can choose from, I chose set 1 which is more natural whilst the other set has lots of colours!

The Matte Lipsticks 

IMG_1680

IMG_1681

IMG_1701

There are 10 different shades and they each retail for £3.35. There is a variety of lip colours that you can choose from – pinks, nudes. reds and purples. I got six shades of them and I absolutely love love the formula!

It is a matte formula and it just dries down so quickly!! It isn’t sticky or tacky and no problem is caused when trying to remove it! It also lasts long but obviously needs reapplication after eating! But I love this and I love the packaging they come in too!

Here are the swatches of the lipsticks –

Unboxing – Beauty Plait – October 2017

Hi everyone,

Hope you all are doing great. Today is such a lovely day in Stirling, I couldn’t help but sit down at my desk and write a blog post.

I am so excited to share with you all Malta’s very first Beauty Subscription Box thanks to Plait. Plait is a subscription box website which have 5 different boxes ranging from Maltese food, snacks, beer, wine and now even makeup!

22429191_10212723792902348_931295335_o

What’s exciting is that because most of the other subscription bags worldwide don’t ship to Malta, but we finally have our very own beauty box called Beauty Plait. Now, the Beauty Plait doesn’t ship internationally, however the rest of the boxes do.

You can choose from 3 different subscription types:

  • Month subscription – €21
  • 3 months subscription – €19
  • 6 months subscription – €17

What does the Beauty Plait box consist of? 

IMG_2014

The beauty box comes with 5 products, not sample sizes but full size products and is worth over €40!! I also liked how the box came with a quote that said, “Happy girls are the prettiest”, from Audrey Hepburn.

Now the November box is already SOLD OUT but you can order the next box, which is the December box on November 1st 2017.

And you can order it right here – https://plait.com.mt/beautyplait/?rf=?748dv90d

You can also follow Plait on their Social media to know more about them and their boxes:

I would like to THANK Plait for giving me the opportunity to review the Beauty Plait!! Thank you so much!! 

Now I will write about the products that were in the October box and my thoughts on the products. You can also watch my video right here of trying the products out for the first time too – 

The products that were found in the October box were:

IMG_2022

TEOXANE Advanced Perfecting Shield

IMG_2028

This is quite a high quality kind of product, sold at a high price. It has SPF 30 which I love because Malta needs that SPF to protect us against UV rays!! It is a tinted face cream that you can apply alone or before applying foundation. It contains Hyaluronic Acid and peptides which helps our skin. It states that it should create a smooth, radiant base for makeup.

My Thoughts – 

I found the product to leave my skin with a glow. I loved the way it made my skin feel. I like wearing it on its own but I also like wearing it alongside foundation and a full face of makeup. It creates a nice base for when you apply the rest of your makeup!

Milkshake Whipped Cream Leave in Foam

IMG_2027

I love Milkshake products mostly because of that amazing vanilla scents they come in!! This leave in foam conditioner contains milk, wheat germ and casein proteins that help strengthen the hair whilst detangling agents help in adding smoothness and shine.

My Thoughts – 

This product has been added to my Hair Routine. I just love applying it to my ends of my damp hair after a shower. And then I style it by making it wavier. It just leaves my hair feeling soft and shiny!

EVAGARDEN Glaring Eye shadow – Shade 261

IMG_2025

IMG_2026

This is a powder eye shadow that leaves us with a pearled and ‘metallized’ effect. It is also long lasting as well.

My Thoughts – 

IMG_2035
The finished eye look.

Shade 261 is a gorgeous metallic dark brown with speckles of glitter. I loved applying it as my shade in the outer corner to finish off my brown smokey eye makeup look. I found the shadow to blend well and it was not at all powdery.

Pupa Diva’s Lashes Mascara Maxi Volume

IMG_2030

IMG_2031

This mascara states to have a volumising effect and creates “defined, sculpted and perfectly combed eyelashes.” It thickens lashes without adding weight.

My Thoughts

I loved how the mascara applied and it separated my lashes well. It did not transfer on my lids and simply lengthened my lashes. I did not find it to create that much volume, in my opinion it is more of a lengthening mascara rather than a volumising one.

Mac Dazzleglass – Shade – Get Rich Quick

IMG_2029

I love the name of this gloss! This gloss contains “large particle pearls that reflect and refract light to mimic the brilliance of quartz and opal crystals.” It provides us with shine and states to apply smoothly and is a non-sticky, non-tacky, lightweight and moisturising formula. You can wear alone, or layer over lipstick or lipglass for dramatic effect.

My Thoughts –

IMG_2038
The finished look with the Dazzleglass 

I was so excited for this product but I was disappointed with it. It states that it should have a vanilla scent yet I do not smell one. It is a little sticky and not moisturising on the lips but what I was mostly disappointed was that it wasn’t as pigmented as I hoped it would be. This product didn’t dazzle me at all. However, I preferred using it on a lipstick rather than on its own.

So those were my thoughts on this month’s Beauty Plait. Was it a hit?

I think so – I loved 4/5 of the products – so of course it is a hit! My most fave products out of them all had to be the Milkshake Leave in Foam Conditioner and the EVAGARDEN Glaring Eye Shadow – I was so impressed by them!!

I cannot wait to see what the next box will bring in Beauty Plait!!

Have you guys tried the Beauty Plait? If that’s a yes, what did you think of the products? If that was a no, will you subscribe for the next box? Comment down below!!

Again, I would like to THANK Plait!! 

Thank you so much for reading!

3INA – The Best Sellers Collection – Review

Hi Everyone, 

Hope everyone is doing great!

IMG_1923

IMG_1926

Today’s blog post is all about 3INA and three products from their Best Sellers Collection.  I would like to thank 3INA Malta and Hudson Group Malta for giving me another opportunity to test out these products. Stay tuned as I will be reviewing another collection of theirs in the coming weeks!!

Here is the video of me testing them out – 

Now, I will give a review of how they tested out once I used them a number of times after filming the video.

IMG_1927

The Cream Eyeshadow in Shade 313

IMG_1936

I have tried out two other cream eyeshadows from 3INA but I think this one in shade 313 is the one I preferred the most. It was easy to work with, having applied it all over my lid, it wasn’t patchy and blended in nicely with the other shades!

IMG_1943

I found it long wearing and it wasn’t cracking. I just love the colour, and once you pair it with a red lip and use it alongside a brown smokey eye – I think you’ll be all set with a Christmas makeup look!!

IMG_1947

The Highlighter in Shade 201 – 

IMG_1933

This is such a radiant and shimmery highlighter. Yes, it doesn’t give you that, “Oh my gosh, what a highlight look!” But I like quite natural looking highlights and this is perfect in keeping your makeup natural yet it adds a gentle glow!

IMG_1934

I also used it for my inner corner highlight to add a pop of highlight to my eyes. Simply applying it with your little finger will do the trick!! (I forgot my pointed brush at home back in Malta so yeah…)

The Longwear Lipstick Shade 505

IMG_1930

This shade is just a lovely dark pink perfect for the autumn months! The longwear lipstick formula, “is designed for those who love the application of a lip gloss but want the colour payoff of a longwear lipstick.” 

IMG_1931

It isn’t patchy and at first you think it’s glossy but then it dries down to an opaque matte lipstick. It lasts longs and its applicator is made for an easy application.

IMG_1820
The Finished Look

Flormar Makeup Haul

Hi Everyone, 

Hope you are all doing great!! I cannot believe that KezziesCorner has been going on for 2 years now!! Thank you to everyone who has supported my blog and my Youtube channel. Without you all, KezziesCorner wouldn’t be here today!! So THANK YOU!!

This year is a slight challenge for me, as I am embarking with my studies in a Masters in Health Psychology at the University of Stirling! The challenge is, that I had to move away from home as the psychology system in Malta is not the best and abroad have finer qualifications than in Malta anyways!! So I am excited, scared and anxious haha about the year ahead, but KezziesCorner will still be regular!

Today’s blog post is all about a makeup haul of products from a brand called Flormar.

In Malta, I love how the makeup community is growing!! More brands are coming along and we even have our first BEAUTY BOX COMING SOON thanks to Plait!! So excited!! Yes, even though I am not in Malta, I am still going to keep myself updated with the makeup gossip happening there!!

Anyways here is the Flormar Makeup Haul video – 

Anywho’s here were the products I mentioned in the video and what I bought – 

With my purchase I also got these free sunglasses that I absolutely loved wearing!!

Flormar Round Cotton Pads €1.95

What can I say, I needed some cotton pads. I found these to be of good quality and were inexpensive.

IMG_1376

Flormar Makeup Remover Wipes – €3.95

I found these to be soft and gentle on my skin. They removed my makeup easily and even my eyeliner and mascara were wiped away.

Flormar Tropical Sun Bronzing Powder – Shade – Maldives – €11.95

IMG_1380

I love this bronzer, I think it is one of those essential bronzers one should carry for Summer. I found that it blended well on my skin and just created a natural, not so harsh bronzed look.

Flormar CC Cream in CC02 – Neutralises the redness like pimples, rashes, blotches to give a natural look – €11.95

IMG_1382

I love this CC cream and it really does conceal the redness that you might be having on your skin. I really recommend this product.

Flormar Dramatic Volume Mascara – €11.95

IMG_1383

I got this with me to Scotland and simply love using it. Yes it has a higher price then I usually spend on mascaras but I think that it is worth it! It just separates my lashes nicely and volumises them too!

Flormar New Age Matte Liquid Lipstick – in Carnation Red and Pretty Plum – €3.95

IMG_1387

These Matte liquid lipsticks aren’t my favourite formula. From the two shades I love the Carnation Red one I think it just has a lovely gorgeous red shade!

Flormar Silky Matte Liquid Lipstick in Autumn Timber and Claret Red – €6.95

IMG_1391

I love the formula of these lipsticks, they aren’t drying and last so long. They come in a variety of shades and Autumn Timber is my all new favourite shade for this season!

Flormar HD Invisible Cover Foundation – in Ivory – €12.95

IMG_1389

I love love love this foundation. It isn’t heavy nor caky just sits nicely on the skin. It is a very medium sort of coverage but it is buildable. What’s bad is that it comes in a glass bottle so I wasn’t able to bring it with me to Scotland, I miss it so much!!

Have you ever bought anything from Flormar? Comment down below and tell me what you recently bought or what products you have from Flormar!! 

Thank you so much for reading!!

One Brand Makeup Look – Essence

Hi everyone, 

If you have been following my Facebook page, you would know that I am currently collaborating with 4 other Maltese bloggers in the #endofsummercollab.

Be sure to check out the other 4 Blogger‘s websites and support them!!

Pocalocca Makeup Artist 

Attaire 

Distorted Priorities 

Every Beauty Addict’s Bible 

We are each sharing a blog post every day for this week and we are also hosting a giveaway where a person will win the Naked Heat Palette from Urban Decay!!! Visit my FACEBOOK PAGE for more information.

IMG_1761

IMG_1751 2

My blog post is all about Essence. I created this look using ONLY ESSENCE products. Ever since I started buying makeup, the first brand I ever bought from was Essence. Yes it was the cheapest and the only brand I could afford back when I was 15 and I started playing around with makeup!!

Here are the products used –

Essence Instant Makeup Foundation

This foundation claims to last for 18 hours, it is said to be super long lasting and contains mineral powder. It is a matt foundation and mine is in the shade 10 matt ivory.

IMG_1764.JPG

Do I think that it lasts all day? No, but I like the formula of it and I love using it as my foundation for my ‘school makeup looks’.

Essence Colour Correcting Liquid Concealer

I got all three shades and each shade has a different purpose.

IMG_1765.JPG

IMG_1766

Green- neutralises redness

Pink – visibly brightens tired looking skin – gives you a ‘wake up effect’

Yellow – conceals dark circles

For this look I only used the Yellow Shade. As you can see from the photo it did crease a little and make sure to not use a lot of the product.

Essence 2 in 1 Highlighting and Contouring Stick for lighter skin in shade 10 blondie

IMG_1769

IMG_1770

I am no expert when it comes to contouring, so I have no idea if I did it right. What I can tell you is that it blended nicely into my skin. The highlight shade of it was not visible, but the contour shade I liked.

Essence All about matt! Fixing compact powder

IMG_1767

I love this powder and this is one powder I have heard a lot about! I love using it to set my under eye concealer and I only apply a little to set the rest of my face. I like matte finishes although now I am kind of wanting more of that glow-y skin. But my skin has a lot of imperfections and am still working on how I could possibly get the glow-y effect.

Essence Make me Brow Duo Eyebrow Powder

IMG_1774

I loved this eye brow powder to fill in my brows. It is so natural and so easy to use. Gently tap an eyebrow brush into the product and fill in your brows. There are two shades and what I do is I apply the lighter shade in the inner part of my brow whilst the outer part I use the darker shade.

Essence make me brow eyebrow gel mascara

IMG_1776

I love using this brow gel to set my brows. I don’t have anything else to say about this apart from saying how much I love this product!

IMG_1726.JPG

Essence The Cushion Eyeliner

IMG_1778

This replaced the gel eyeliner I used to use also from Essence. I love using this eyeliner to create a cat eye or a simple lined look as in the case of today’s look. It is just so pigmented, it doesn’t smudge or transfer and is so easy to apply!

Essence Volume Stylist 18 hr Curl and Hold Mascara with Micro Styling Waxes

IMG_1781

If you don’t already know, I LOVE Essence mascaras and this has been a new favourite of mine to replace the Lash Princess. And you guys know how much I and everyone else loved that mascara! This one has micro styling waxes which elongate the lashes more, gives them more volume and separates them so well!

Essence Luminous Matt Bronzing Powder for lighter skin in shade 01 Sunshine

IMG_1782

This is just a lovely and natural bronzer. I don’t know if it picked up on camera but it just isn’t too heavy and perfect for an everyday makeup look.

Essence Pure Nude Highlighter shade 10 Be my highlight

IMG_1783

IMG_1785

I love this highlight and I got to know about this from Kathleen Lights. Again it doesn’t pick that much on camera but it is a gorgeous natural looking highlight!

IMG_1734.JPG

Essence Matt Matt Matt lipstick in shade 06 Kiss me if you can

IMG_1786

IMG_1787

I love this lipstick brand, I think it is one of the best lipstick ranges that they have out of all the Essence Lipsticks. It lasts all day, it isn’t drying and it is so pigmented! There are so many colours to choose from, so I am sure that you will definitely find a shade for you!

IMG_1743.JPG

 

And that was my take on a one brand makeup look. Don’t forget to check out my FACEBOOK PAGE to enter our #endofsummercollab GIVEAWAY!! 

I really hope you enjoyed reading this!!

New Products from Rimmel & Eylure – First Impressions

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all doing well!

Today I am coming to you with a REVIEW on some products from two brands – Rimmel and Eylure.

Some products were sent to me and I would like to thank Rimmel Malta and Eylure Malta for sending me these products and giving me the chance to review them for you guys! I really enjoyed trying them out!

So let’s begin!

I created a summer-y eye look thanks to the Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow palette and then tamed my brows thanks to the Rimmel Brow this Way – 3 in 1 Soft Powder in Medium Brown. I ordered this of Feelunique. I had never tried out any powder brow product, but I really loved using this one.

I filled in my brows so fast and the product just went on smoothly. The powder is pigmented so go in with a light hand.

I then tested out on one eye the – Eylure New Patented Effect – Layered Lash – 3 Dimension in number 119 Lashes. [These were sent to me] These lashes are layered and thanks to that they give more length and volume.

The pack also came with a glue and I love the glues that come with these Eylure sets as they stick the lashes on well and they also last long. What I loved about these lashes is that they were easy to apply and they had a natural effect to them.

I had to cut a piece off the fake lash as they were a little too big for my eyes; so make sure to measure them to see if they are a good size fit.

I then tested out the Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara on the other eye. [This product was sent to me] I shook the mascara and when you shake it, this will help it to remain clump free. The mascara lengthened and separated my lashes ever so well.

It didn’t transfer on my eyelid and it volumised my lashes nicely. I love the concept of shaking it in order to remain clump free, do it every so often.

Here is a photo that shows the lashes on one eye and the mascara on the other eye –

I then stuck the Eylure lashes on the other eye and used the Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara to set my lashes together with my real lashes on the right eye – as you can see you will notice immediately the difference between the two eyes.

I then also got to try out the Rimmel Radiance Brick Multi Tonal Shimmer Powder in 001 Light. [This product was sent to me]. The powder contains speckles of glitter, it is a mix of light beige to darker brown tones.

I love how it applied on the skin, it is a simple and natural bronzer that just gives you a slight sunkissed look. So if you are like me and don’t like those chalky brown bronzers then this is the one for you. You can also use the lighter shade if you want a very subtle highlight.

I then also tested out the NEW Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colours. I managed to get my hands on them from Feelunique. I am so happy that Rimmel came out with these new matte liquid lipsticks!

I got 5 different shades and with this look I used Be My Baby!

It’s a lovely nude shade. I find these lipsticks to creamy and not drying. They last long and have a very moussey consistency. There are lots of shades, mostly nudes. If you are a liquid lipstick lover then I highly recommend you trying them out!

The other shades I got were –

Fire Starter – Gorgeous Red Shade

Blush – Baby Pink Shade

Rose & Shine – a Darker Pink Shade

Pink Bliss – Lighter Pink Shade

Overall finished makeup look –

And the final product I shall be reviewing is the Eylure Body Tape – Pre Cut Adhesive Stripes. [This product was sent to me] They come in 2 shapes and in total you get 27 strips. I prefer the curved strips.

They stick on really well and last long too. If you are wearing a top that might not allow to wear a bra or a stick on bra I really recommend these as these are another alternative. They are easy to use, long lasting and you can use them more than once!

I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post! I really enjoyed writing this up and also creating this look! Thank you so much for reading it!

Again, thank you to both Rimmel Malta and Eylure Malta for these wonderful products!

Until next time,

Shimmery Makeup Tutorial ft. Born Pretty Store

Hi everyone,

Today’s blog post is all about a Shimmery Makeup Look I created thanks to some products from Born Pretty Store.

Born Pretty Store is a website that sells a variety of products, from makeup to nail items and mobile accessories etc. I have made previous videos & blog posts about their website and you can check them out right here –

I also have a 10% DISCOUNT CODE that you could use at checkout and on non sale items – KEZZH10

I would like to thank Born Pretty Store for giving me yet another opportunity to collaborate with them!

The products I reviewed this time from their website were – 

2 Piece Face Brush Set 

IMG_0484

These retail for $2.59. I found that these brushes are a little small to apply any foundation or powder. I tried blending out my concealer which I liked how they blended it for me. And I also tried applying bronzer and highlight with them.

However, I didn’t get the finished effect I usually get with my other products. The highlight applied better than the bronzer but I think that these brushes look really cute on your vanity with their rhinestone packaging.

6 Piece Gradient Rainbow Unicorn Colorful Handle Eye Makeup Eyeshadow Brushes Set

IMG_0483

This retails for $3.99. I think these brushes are so cutely decorated with that perfect unicorn print. You get a brush for your brows, eyeliner, 2 flat brushes, a crease brush and a pointed brush perfect for the inner corner. 

I loved these brushes more than the other face brushes of before. I found that the brow brush and eyeliner one applied the products well. There is no proper blending brush in this set however the flat brushes are great to work with. Overall I think you can get good use out of them and they are so cute too!

1Pc Glow Shimmer Liquid Highlighter

This retails for $2.59. I applied this not as a highlight but as my base colour on my eye look. So I applied it using the flat brush from the unicorn brush set.

I felt that this product was a little patchy when applied and took a little long to dry. However, I loved the finished effect and how it made my eye look pop even more!

1 Pair Handmade False Eyelash Black Long Thick Curly Artificial Eyelash

IMG_0486

These retail for $2.99. I found that these lashes were so easy to work with. The packaging they came in was really practical too.

I love how these applied and that they had a natural effect to them. They lasted long and when I applied mascara on them so to blend my real lashes with them, they stayed on really well. These are my favourite eye lashes that I have tried from born pretty store for sure!

Missy Young Fashion Matte Liquid Lipstick in Shade 5

21268100_10212406859219204_1966671031_o

This retails for $2.59. I loved the colour of this lipstick, it’s such a lovely deep pink shade. I love how it applied, it wasn’t patchy or flakey and it dried down to a complete matte finish.

I tried the kiss proof test, and the lipstick didn’t transfer. For only $2.59 I think these lipsticks are such a bargain!

The final look –
