IMG_3984.jpg

Today’s blog post is all about liquid lipsticks from Shop Miss A. If you didn’t know Shop Miss A is an online website that sells everything for $1 ONLY! It has makeup brushes, accessories and makeup.

I love their fake lashes and liquid lipsticks! I think they are a true bargain!

If you have not seen my latest video, I showed lip swatches of all the shades that I will be mentioning in today’s blog post!

I tried out three different lipstick collections – AOA Wonder Matte Liquid Lipsticks, Amuse Matte Liquid Lipsticks and Amuse Glam Matte Lipglosses. My favourite by far is the AOA, they have wonderful pigments and they last long. They also have a nice scent to them unlike the others. The other two are slightly patchy but still work fine.

NEW The Longwear Lipstick Shades from 3INA!

Hi everyone, 

Happy Friday! I hope you are all doing great. Here in Scotland a storm is just making itself comfortable. I have been stuck in me little room, scared of going outside! But it’s ok because I have a NEW blog post for you all!

Screen Shot 2018-03-01 at 18.52.16
(These photos were taken in Malta, hence the sun)

Today is all about the new Longwear Lipstick shades from 3INA. I would like to thank 3INA Malta and Hudson Group Malta for these lovely lipsticks! 3INA is an animal cruelty free and paraben free brand, they have a variety of products and each come in every shade you can imagine!

Screen Shot 2018-03-01 at 18.52.26

The Longwear Lipstick formula provides us with a creamy application that leaves a gorgeous matte finish. I love the way the lipsticks dry on the lips, they are not sticky or drying and feel so lightweight on the lips. Nonetheless, they last all day and the shades I have here today are perfect to end the Winter season with your lips popping an amazing colour!

Screen Shot 2018-03-01 at 10.22.39

They also come with an amazing applicator that allows us to have a smooth and easy application. I have been loving these type of flat applicators right now! And just one last note before I tell you which shade is my favourite, I LOVE their smell, they just smell so sweet! I promise I am not lying!

Screen Shot 2018-03-01 at 18.51.51

My favourite is shade 520, it kind of also reminds me that Spring is right round the corner and I cannot wait to see if I can ever change me wardrobe here in Scotland. I know that if I were in Malta I would be preparing my crop tops and off the shoulder floral tops right about now! But I doubt I would be wearing those clothes any sooner in Scotland.

Anyways, here are the swatches of each the shades.

Testing Out NEW Golden Rose Makeup Products

Hi everyone, 

How’s it going? Here is my first ever video taken in my new little room back in Scotland. How am I adjusting you might say? Well, not bad actually. I am loving the greenery, the fresh air and well maybe not the weather but all in all, I am doing ok!

Today’s blog post is all about some new GOLDEN ROSE products that were gifted to me from Beauty Cosmos Malta which is a cute shop filled with a variety of Golden Rose makeup products in Fgura. Definitely give it a visit if you would like to try out some of these products.

The products mentioned were – 

Screen Shot 2017-10-05 at 17.11.20

CC Cream Color Correcting Primer in Violet and Yellow – €14.75

IMG_1901

The yellow primer is for correcting and neutralising purple/blue tones and correcting any redness on your skin. It prepares your base for a flawless makeup application.  I personally love this over the Violet one as my skin has quite a bit of redness going to it!

The violet primer neutralises dull yellow undertones and it’s good for medium skin tones and again prepares the base for a flawless makeup application.

Both primers help in smoothing, evening and brightening skin tones and hiding dullness and dark spots. I think they do a perfect job in hiding any imperfections you have got going on also.

They contain a Pure Moisturiser Complex and Vitamin E. They also have SPF 30 which is perfect for your skin and no parabens are added. They can be used alone or under foundation. 

Contour Kabuki Brush €11.00

IMG_1902

The brush is designed in the shape of a S shape and that means it is perfect to sculpt and contour with. It helped me quite a bit as I am no master of the contour technique.

It blended out the shades perfectly and the shape helps me figure out where is it that I need to place my contour!

Stylist Duo Liner 2 in 1 Eyeliner Pen €8.50

IMG_1906

This eyeliner pen has two tips that allow for the perfect liner look! Both sides are pigmented and are deep black. The pen is said to be smudge proof and made up of a longwear liquid formula.

IMG_1913

I have used this pen with both sides multiple times and I love it! It lasts all day and just glides on so smoothly. It has a semi-matte finish and it is enriched with Aloe Vera and Vitamins.

Both the tips allow for the perfect liner look.

IMG_1904

The thin tip in the Tulip Shape is made of a flexible felt-tip in the shape of a tulip and it allows for an easy application.

IMG_1905

The ball tip which has a round shape is a flexible felt tip in the shape of a ball and this shape allows for an easy classic eyeliner look, perfect for beginners.

I first use the Thin Tip and then go over it with the ball tip to finalise my look and to make sure that the line is straight.

Smokey Lashes Mascara – Defining Volume and Intensely Black €7.50

IMG_1909

This mascara is said to add volume and fullness to the lashes. However, I believe that it lengthens them mostly and separates them ever so evenly.

IMG_1910

It is smudge proof and has a quick dry formula with a unique soft fiber brush.

Soft Kiss Lip Marker Flocky Tip  – Kiss Proof and smudge proof with Vitamin E and Aloe Vera – Shade 01, 05 – €8.50

I love how most of these products have vitamins and Aloe Vera!! Now I must say that I am not a fan of lip markers in general. These ones provide us with a lip stain that when applied feels so refreshing on the lips and lasts so long. I love shade 05, it has a such a cute rich red shade!

What I also like about these is that you could use these lip markers before applying regular lipsticks or lipglosses to make them last longer!

Matte Lip Crayon Shade 23 and 25 – €6.25

I love these matte lip crayons. They are so easy and creamy to apply. Shade 23 is such a gorgeous red shade, perfect for the Christmas time!

I really recommend these if you are like me and love matte lipsticks!

Have you ever tried any of these products? Comment down below!!

I would like to thank Beauty Cosmos Malta once again for these products!!!

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.

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 09.03.21

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 

21267648_10212406859699216_1733171655_o

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 –

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!

The shipping does take a while so be patient if you do order. However, the website is very user friendly and they have great customer service!

I am also sharing a 10% discount code you could use in checkout on all original priced items. The discount code is – KEZZH10.

18120569_10211197879715472_845397538_o

I would like to thank bornprettystore for giving me this opportunity of testing out 5 items. Here is me trying them out on video –

18110210_10211197879755473_983590763_o

Here is a further review on the products –
Fan Brush

18052359_10211197903556068_1863801926_o

I love this brush, it feels so soft on the skin. It also blends the highlight nicely on my skin. This is a great highlight brush on a budget.

Lip Balm 

18111226_10211197901356013_276613983_o

I simply love the packaging of this lip balm it is just too cute! It simply refreshes the lips just a little bit but doesn’t really moisturise them all that well.

 Matte Liquid Lipstick Shade Number 36 

This may be a little dry on the lips even though I applied the moisturising lip balm which should have helped it to make it less dry. But ignoring that aside, it is a lovely matte lipstick.

The shade is a gorgeous dark plum and purple shade and it isn’t patchy. It is quite long lasting, just needs a retouch after eating!

Eyeshadow Palette Number 4  

18110991_10211197902636045_236520547_o

There are better drugstore eyeshadow palettes out there. Even though I created a good enough look I still think it isn’t that worth it.

I also damped my eyeshadow flat brush to apply a shade all around my eye base which helped in enhancing the eyeshadow shade. The shadows are quite powdery and they aren’t that pigmented.

Fake Eyelashes 

18083603_10211197901916027_1470136463_o

Now I am not a big fan of eye lashes simply because I am not that good at applying them! I applied these with my Ardell lash glue and the lashes applied nicely. They looked natural with my real lashes and I have used them multiple times since the video.

I really recommend these lashes however, they were a little bit too big for my eye shape but all you simply need to do is trim to your length.

 

Have you ever ordered from this website? Have you ever tried out any of these products? If so, then comment down below! 

If not, what are your thoughts on this website and these products? I would love to hear from you guys!

Ebay $1 ‘Danimer’ Liquid Lipsticks Review & Swatches

Hi everyone, 

It seems like forever that I wrote a blog post!

I have started working again, so back into my daily routine. However, I am also trying to gain so much psychology wise experience so I can have a lovely application for my Masters that I will be applying to for the coming year !!

Fingers crossed!!

Anyways, yesterday I uploaded a new video and per usual I always write a blog post about it without a miss! So here is that blog post !

As always, here is the video if you guys have not seen it already!!

So like everybody else I was browsing through eBay and I stumbled onto these lipsticks. I have read so many reviews about these lipsticks some good, some bad. I know that lots of different types of these liquid lipsticks exist but the batch I got were pretty darn good!

I bought mine from eBAY but the listing has been removed. But if you search liquid lipsticks, I am sure you will stumble upon these.

13730696_10208599704122706_130908873_o

13728424_10208599701762647_311113564_o

13718056_10208599698842574_1233044127_o
If you are looking for a bargain and for multiple shades, I HIGHLY recommend these!!!

The formula of these lipsticks is a good one overall. Some tend to go patchy and some don’t. Some do feel sticky but they are not drying onto the lips.

When I first took off the first swatch it took me some time to remove but then the other swatches were so easy to remove. So be sure to apply a lip moisturiser underneath.

They dry really quickly, and they dry to a complete matte finish. So don’t believe what it says on the tube – long lasting lip gloss – as it certainly is a matte lipstick and not a lip gloss!

The scent is confusing as some of them have these nice pleasant fruity scents but others are more chemical-y.

The shades vary, there are pinks, nudes, reds!
