Testing out NEW Max Factor Products

Hi everyone, 

Long time no see! I know I apologise for my lack of posts however, if you saw my latest vlog on my Youtube Channel you would know that I embarked on a new adventure. I will tell you more about it once I feel more settled.

Anyways, today’s blog post is about MAX FACTOR and three of their products!! I would like to thank Max Factor Malta and Vj Salomone Marketing for the products, I truly appreciate this lovely opportunity once again!

I have done a previous blog post, testing out some other new Max Factor products, if you want to have a look at that you can do so by CLICKING HERE.

You can watch me applying the products for the first time right here –

The three products are the following –

Max Factor Eyefinity Smoky Eye Pencil in Persian Blue and Radiant Silver

IMG_1525

This Eyefinity pencil is really pigmented! I find that you can easily create a look within five minutes and add a pop of colour to your eyes! I also think that the Persian Blue and Radiant Silver Shade contrast perfectly together!

IMG_1523

The eye pencil is very easy to use and it just glides on nicely on the eyes, even on my waterline. It also includes a water resistant formulation and this also helps as it lasts all day!

Max Factor Creme Bronzer in Shade 10 Bronze

IMG_1514

I was so excited to try out this product! This just helped in creating a natural and sun-kissed glow to my look. It has a “unique formula” with its baked minerals and is easy to blend into the skin. It just has such a creamy and soft formula.

IMG_1517

It also includes Micro-Fine pigments and Multi-Tonal shades which help in adding to that sun-kissed glow!

IMG_1412

I do notice however, that when using powder products with hints of glitter in them, they tend to highlight my pores and imperfections on my skin. Therefore, when using this product I go in with a light hand, to make sure that I do not use a large amount of this product. I guess using a little bit of the product will go a long way!
Max Factor Colour Elixir Lacquer Lip Gloss in Indulgent Coral

IMG_1518

 

I love the packaging of this product, I think it is just so cute! It comes in 8 different shades, from your pinks, to your reds and purples! It states that it has 3 Irresistible Lip Benefits, which are:-

  1. The intense colour of a lipstick
  2. The shine of a gloss
  3. The soft feel of a balm

IMG_1520

The formula is creamy yet not sticky. The gloss does not have a scent and the applicator provides for an easy application.

IMG_1443

The shade I got mine in is Indulgent Coral which is highly pigmented and perfect for a natural makeup look. It adds shine to my lips and it creates a plumper look to my lips. It is smooth as a lip balm and is very moisturising on the lips!

All in all, I loved this product and I don’t normally go for lip glosses, but this one passed the test!

Have you ever tried any of these products? If so, what were your thoughts? And if not, are you intrigued by the products now? Would you like to try any of these? Comment down below!

And there you have it! That was my review on these three Max Factor products! I hope you enjoyed reading this!

Thank you once again to Max Factor Malta and VJ Salomone Marketing for the products and for this lovely opportunity to review them up on my Youtube Channel and Blog!!

Thank you so much for reading!!

April 2017 Favourites – Skincare, Hair products & Makeup

Hi beauty lovers, 

How are you all doing? Hope you are having a great start to the week!

IMG_8611

Yesterday, I released a BONUS video up on my channel and it was all about my April Favourites; ranging from hair products, skincare and makeup!

My April 2017 Favourites – 

IMG_8622

Tangle Teezer 

I love using this to untie my knots that seem to love my hair! I love using in this show before applying conditioner and before rinsing it off. This helps my hair in not getting too tangled after coming out of the shower!

TRESemme’ Salon Sleek Frizz Control Smooth Memory Spray

I love using this before straightening my hair and to keep my hair from frizzing after having had a shower!

IMG_8618

Arad Facial Cleansing Milk 

This has been my favourite product to use to remove my makeup! It literally takes off any makeup you could possibly use! It is so soft and gentle on the skin. You can click here to read an entire blog post all about this product!

Arad Mineral Facial Scrub

I have been using this in conjunction with my Vichy cleanser and have loved the combination. It really has helped my pores decrease in size and helped keep my face cleansed and clean. You can click here to read an entire blog post all about this product!

NYX Angel Veil Skin Perfecting Primer

IMG_8638

I have been using this primer constantly this month – as in April! It helps keep my makeup last longer and also helps create a nice base before applying other makeup products! It also helps decrease the look of pores!

L’Oreal True Match Super Blendable Foundation

IMG_8623

I have been wanting to buy this foundation for a while now and now having tried it I can say it was worth the wait and the money! I would say this a medium to full coverage – very buildable! I love how it sits on the skin – not cakey whatsoever!

Collection  Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer

IMG_8639

For the price it is amazing! One of my favourite concealers to highlight the bridge of my nose, my cupid’s bow and chin! And also to conceal under my eyes. It doesn’t crease and lasts all day!

Wycon Prime and Fine Powder

IMG_8640

This sets my foundation and concealer nicely. It doesn’t feel heavy on the skin and the shade is perfect and blends well!

Milani Baked blush in Berry Amore 

I love this blush – it’s like a mix of orange, pink and gold altogether! It has tiny glitter speckles which adds to the intensity and glimmer of this blush! I also love the packaging of the baked blushes by Milani!

Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer

I have been wanting this product ever since I saw Kathleen Lights rave about it so many times! I ordered mine off ebay! I forgot to say in the video that it has an intense summer smell that makes you excited for beach and summer days. It just creates a natural and bronzed look. It is very light weight and not that intense – my favourite!

Sleek Precious Metals Highlight Palette 

The packaging is gorgeous and the highlights are amazing! My favourite shade is Antique Bronze which is a lovely gold cream highlight. Perfect for not pointing out your pores more as a powder highlight would!

Max Factor Natural Brow Styler

IMG_8636

I love this as it settles and tames my brows in place. It keeps them intact all throughout the day and dries clearly.

IMG_8634

Rimmel Lash Accelerator Endless Mascara

This mascara has been an old favourite of mine. It just separates and lengthens my lashes nicely. It also doesn’t transfer on eyelids.

Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara

Yes if you are doing a physical activity and you are wearing this – it may transfer on your eyelids. But it just lengthens and volumises the lashes ever so nicely!

Essence The Cushion Eyeliner

I had never used a cushion eyeliner before and let me just say this small pot really impressed me! It just creates a lovely intense black line!

Essence The Eyeliner Waterproof Pen

You can create a thick or bold line with this waterproof pen. It doesn’t move either! It is not patchy whatsoever although, as the day goes by it does become patchy and you might want to retouch it.

BH Cosmetics Illuminate by Ashley Tisdale- Beach Goddess Palette –

IMG_8616

This palette is just too cute. I love the shades they are all so natural and you can create different looks. My favourite shades from this palette are Fiji – a cream shade , Maui – a copper shade and St. Lucia – a bronze shade. The eyeshadows are also so pigmented and blend nicely together.

MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer – Sizzle

You know that I love these lipsticks! I also includes this shade in my Favourite Spring Lipsticks video and couldn’t resist but to include this in my April Favourites too! I love this shade – it is a beautiful orange/red shade! This one isn’t patchy whatsoever!

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip – Point Zero

I know that this doesn’t look like a spring shade but I loved wearing it this month and found myself reaching it for it more than I thought I would. The wand isn’t my favourite, but once applied I love the shade on my lips. It is like a brown/nude shade and has a bit of a satin shimmer finish. This was one of the collaborations Kathleen Lights did with Colourpop.

Favourite TV Show – 13 Reasons Why

Oh my god – if you haven’t seen this you really should! It is a Netflix TV Show made up of 13 episodes – 13 reasons why Hannah did what she did! It is a different story from what you normally see but worth watching because these things actually do happen and we need to have our eyes opened more!

Favourite Movie – Beauty and the Beast

This is such a cute movie. I normally do not like movies which have songs in them like musicals do. But I didn’t mind the songs in this movie! The costumes and the hair was amazing and I love the little cutlery dancing around the objects being animate. Watching this movie also brought back childhood memories of when I used to see the cartoon movie on tape!

What were your favourites of April 2017? Have you tried any of the above products?

Favourite Spring Lipsticks 2017

Hi lip lovers, 

As you may know I am crazy about lip products! So if you have been following my Youtube channel and blog for a while you would know that I always do my favourite seasonal lipsticks!

And as Spring has just rolled in I had to do my Favourite Spring Lipsticks. However, this video was a collab with Daisy Taveras. You should really visit and support her channel as she does amazing makeup videos!!

My top 10 lipstick picks for this season are –

MAC Amplified Lipstick – Fast Play

IMG_8207fast play 1

I love this as it has such a lovely pink and creamy finish! Perfect lipstick for an everyday Spring Makeup Look!
Sleek Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream – Birthday Suit

IMG_8215birthday suit 1

This is such a gorgeous pink shade! I absolutely love this and the formula from Sleek!
Max Factor Velvet Matte Lipstick – Blush

IMG_8206blush 1

This is such a gorgeous fun pink to wear. It isn’t light or bright but just in between! I love the formula of these lipsticks too – they are so moisturising!
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Prague

IMG_8210prague 1

I love the Soft Matte Lip Cream’s from NYX! And this is quite similar to the shade Blush from before. However, this shade is more matte than the other and it is slightly darker!
Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte Lipstick – Summer Lovin’

IMG_8211summer lovin' 1

This is an out there kinda’ pink!!! Something that is bold and fun to wear! Reminds me of Nicki Minaj! Nonetheless, you can rock this on a night out makeup look.
(EBAY DUPE) Kat Von D Liquid Lipstick – Double Date

IMG_8212double date

Even though this is a dupe it is still a pretty shade. I had to reapply it a couple of times to get the finished look. But then it settles nicely on the lips!
Essence Matt Matt Matt Longlasting Lipgloss – Shade 5

IMG_8213shade 5 1

This is such a gorgeous pinky red! I love the way it settles on the lips and it isn’t all that matte but has a slight sheen to it.
Milani Amore Matte Lip Cream – Amore

IMG_8214amore 1

I love the scent of these formula lipsticks! This pink red shade is just GORGEOUS! Wear some eyeliner and mascara and add this, and you’re good to go!
MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer – Sizzle

IMG_8216sizzle 1

This is a lovely burnt orange shade. I guess orange is a more autumnal colour however I like this for spring as it isn’t dark!
Golden Rose Liquid Lipstick – Shade 8

IMG_8208shade 8 1

This again is a lovely pink shade – very fun and bright!

Testing Out/ First Impressions on NEW Max Factor Makeup Products

Hi everyone!

Hope you are all doing well. Today’s blog post is all about 3 new Max Factor Makeup Products.

IMG_8170

Here is my video showing you all how the products actually apply –

The three products I tried were – 

Max Factor Natural Brow Gel 

IMG_8186

This transparent brow gel comes with a twisted wire brush which helps to spread out the gel all over your brow hairs. You could either use it on its own or else apply it after having filled in your brows with a powder or an eyebrow pencil. Personally I prefer using it after having filled in my brows in order to get more of a natural looking brow.

IMG_8172

The gel is shiny at first however, then it just dries down and settles nicely on your brows. I find that it helps to my hairs in place and it helps keep them tidy and tamed! I also apply this first in my inner brows and then moving it to the outer parts!

Max Factor 2000 Calorie Curl Addict Mascara 

IMG_8176

The packaging of this mascara is so cool and retro! The brush of this mascara is a short curved brush with dense fibre bristles which helps them to get in between all of your lashes!

I love this mascara because you don’t need to curl your lashes beforehand with a lash curler, the mascara does the job itself. I find that it can be messy, so apply it with a steady hand and just in case keep a cue tip next to you to help clean out any mistakes that you might have done.

IMG_8190

This mascara lasts throughout the day and keeps your lashes long and curled! It is not tacky and clumpy.

Max Factor Velvet Matte Lipstick – Shade Blush

IMG_8180

Max Factor have released a new lipstick formula, that is the Velvet Matte Lipstick. There is a slight scent to the lipstick however, it isn’t that clear. The packaging is so sleek and compact!

IMG_8184 2

The shade I got mine in was Blush and it is a rosey pink shade perfect for Spring! The formula is simply amazing as it is quite moisturising having oils and butters that makes it rich in moisture. It is easily applied onto the lips and glides smoothly. It isn’t patchy at all and it just looks amazing on the lips.

IMG_8061 2

There is a slight shine on it however, it gradually decreases. It is also quite long lasting however, you do need to have it in your bag if you are going to go out to eat to touch it up a little.

Have you tried any of these products?

Did you like my review?

What is your favourite Max Factor product? 

Mine has to be the Velvet Matte Lipstick!
