January Makeup Favourites!!

Hi everyone, 

So January is over … like how is that possible? I will be trying to do these makeup videos once a month, however I will ask you guys on my social media if you wish to see them before filming the video!! Or else I can do a blog post instead! Anyways, enough rambles and let’s get on with the blog post!

In this month I kind of started using some new things, however I also kept using some old products too that I loved throughout 2017!

#1 – 3INA – The Fixing Spray

IMG_3416

I love using this Spray to set my makeup after having applied it! It just sets so nicely and makes my skin look even better! The only thing I don’t like about is that sometimes the pump is faulty and produces more water than a nice spritz! Also, it has a lovely smell to it!

#2 – PS… Primer Water

IMG_3415

This is a product from Primark and their makeup. I have seen quite a bit of other youtubers mention this in their primark haul. So when I came back to Scotland after my christmas break I went ahead and bought it. I love spraying this on my face before applying any makeup or even on a no makeup day I still spray it. It hydrates my skin and makes it look glow-y!

#3 – Pixi Skin Treats – Rose Flash Balm Instant Skin Booster

IMG_3403

This is such a great product. I would like to thank Pixi Beauty UK for it! It is a 3 in 1 product as you can use it as a moisturiser, mask or primer! I love using it as a primer mostly, it decreases my pores and creates a nice base. When I applied it as a mask I had a lot of redness and my skin felt sticky.

#4 – Makeup Revolution – I Heart Makeup Chocolate Orange Eyeshadow Palette

This is one of the newest releases from Makeup Revolution. I love their palettes, their great quality, some are dupes of other high end brands and they also come in a cheaper price! The colour selection of this palette is great to create a number of looks and I see myself using this in a Valentine’s Day makeup look!

#5 – Colourpop – All I see is Magic Eyeshadow Palette

I thought the palette would be slightly bigger so be aware guys as the size of the palette on the website may fool you! The colour selection in this palette varies and I just love it! The quality of these shadows are amazing and super blendable!

#6 – Max Factor – Healthy Skin Harmony Miracle Foundation – Light Ivory with SPF 20

IMG_3424

One of the newest foundations from Max Factor and I just love it! I love using it to create simple everyday makeup looks but even for a night out its great! It lasts long and is really lightweight! It just makes your skin look flawless!

#7 – Collection – Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer

IMG_3439

This is such a great concealer to highlight and brighten under your eyes! And for the price it is even more amazing! There is a foundation of Collection alongside this concealer that isn’t my cup of tea but this concealer is just great and it is a favourite of mine from 2017!

#8 – PS….Insta Girl Rice Powder

IMG_3422

This is another Primark product and it is just so impressive! I love baking with this, it just sets my concealer so nicely without creasing. It is a loose powder to set makeup and it also helps in absorbing oils.

#9 – Soap and Glory – Archery Eyebrow pencil

IMG_3437

I love this brow pencil to fill in my brows! It also helps me fill them in so easily! I just love it and again this came with me from 2017!

#10 – Max Factor – Natural Brow Gel

IMG_3428

You have heard me mention this product in a number of videos/blog posts! I just love using this to set my brows! It’s my number one setting brow gel!

#11 – Essence Super Last eyeliner in deep black

IMG_3427

This eyeliner creates such a rich and thick black line! It is great for creating that cat wing look and it doesn’t transfer and dries down so fast!!!

#12 – Milani illuminating face powder in Amber Nectar

IMG_3418

I love using this to add some colour to my pale face. When I don’t want to bronze or contour my face I love using this to give me a natural pink colour to my skin.

#13 – H&M Bronzing Powder

IMG_3423

This is a great natural bronzing powder. I love using it on everyday makeup looks, I just think that it leaves me with a nice bronzed face which isn’t too much!

#14 – Rimmel Wonderfully Real Mascara with Keratin

IMG_3419

This mascara is great as it also has Keratin, so it is helping your lashes too! You should be careful of this mascara because it can be a bit too liquidy and can transfer! But it creates nice volume and length.

#15 – L’Oreal Paradise Extatic Mascara

IMG_3436

I absolutely love the effect that this mascara gives to your lashes. It enhances them, lengthens and volumises them. It can get a bit clumpy but overall it is a great product!

#16 – Makeup Revolution Liquid Highlighter in Liquid Starlight

This is a buildable highlight, you can create the tiniest of highlights but use more and you’ll have the shiniest highlight beam out there! The liquid highlighters come in a number of colours so be sure to check that collection out!

#17 – NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream in Stockholm

I love the NYX Soft Matte Lip Creams. Their formula is just the best, very lightweight and not drying. And this shade in Stockholm is just super pretty especially for a natural makeup look!

#18 – Essence Matt Matt Matt Lipstick in shade 03 Wow Effect

IMG_3440

I just love this lipstick, both the formula and the colour choice is great. I love wearing this when I am going for a more natural makeup look!

#19 – Golden Rose Long-lasting Liquid Lipstick in shade 18

Best red in the entire collection and one of my favourite reds that I have in my lip collection! I just love the formula of these lip sticks and they have a tonne of shades so be sure to check them out!

#20 – Gerard Cosmetics Hydra Matte lipstick in Nude

This shade is gorgeous, it’s darker to the Stockholm shade mentioned before. I love the packaging of these lipsticks and they are just amazing! Not too drying or sticky, and last all day!!

#21 – Essence Matt Matt Matt longlasting lipgloss in Shade 11 Drama Club

If you are looking for a gorgeous plum shade then try this out! The formula of these lipsticks can sometimes be a hit or miss depending on the shade. This can be a bit patchy but you can work your way around it!

#22 – Essence soft contouring lip liner in shade 09 going steady

This is a great lip liner, so smooth and it glides on nicely. And the shade is great and mauvey!

#23 – Sand and Sky Purifying Pink Clay Mask

I have done a separate blog post about this so you can check it out by CLICKING HERE. But this mask is great for people who have acne or had too and still have acne scars. It also helps in reducing the appearance of pores!

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?

Thank you so much for reading!

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!

Thank you so much for reading/watching!

Love Kezia
