Testing out NEW MUA COSMETICS!!

Hi everyone, 

Boy I haven’t written here in a while. I miss it so much. I should be posting a couple of blog posts in the coming week. . . So STAY TUNED!!

I hope you all had a lovely Easter! Mine was spent in London with my mum so yes expect a Primark Haul soon!

Today’s video is all about some NEW MUA products that recently came out. I bought them a while ago and managed to film a video for you guys. This was my First Impressions of the products as before having filmed this video I never tried them out! I created this look with copper pink eyes and rosey dark pink lips.

I noticed that MUA have recently came out with some other NEW products! I am so wanting to get my hands on them and am so disappointed that I didn’t notice them in Superdrug while on holiday!!

Here are the products mentioned in the video and also a little written summary of my after thoughts –

Face Products –

IMG_8031

I love using this powder to set my overall foundation. Yes it is a little too powder-y but it does the job in setting all your face products and settling them down nicely. When taking pictures I find that my face doesn’t come looking as white as can be therefore there isn’t any flashback. I prefer however, using this only to set my under eye concealer rather than applying it all over my face.

Finally, this is a bargain as you get a lot of product for only £4!

This is the product I prefer to set my overall face products with rather than the fine loose setting powder. It doesn’t move my foundation all around and the blush, bronzer and highlight settle down nicely on this product. This is a great product and is very affordable at only £4!

I did not use this product on camera however I did use it after. Besides there only being half of the product in the tub it is an okay primer to start off your makeup look. It doesn’t make my skin red and helps in decreasing the look of my pores. It isn’t shiny as well!

However, again I did not like that the product came half empty and it was £5! I don’t think I would buy this product again!

  • MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighters –

I love these highlighters. I have others in my collection and would like to get the other new shades that they recently came out with as well (Peach Diamond, Ice Sparkle, Pearlescent Sheen) . They create a bright highlight across your cheekbone which can be seen a mile away. I love how they don’t emphasise any lines or pores on your skin but settle nicely on my face. I absolutely love these highlighters and they are also so affordable at £3 each!

From Left to Right – Rosewood Glimmer, Golden After Glow, Golden Scintillation

I showed the following shades in my video – 
Golden After Glow  – literally a golden glimmer highlight!
Rosewood Glimmer – a rosey/pinky/pinkred, original highlight!
Golden Scintillation – a softer and lighter yellow golden glimmer highlight!

  • Illumination Highlight Kits 

IMG_8037

MUA also released two illumination Highlight Kits. The first I totally dig as even though the highlights are quite light they still come up as very natural on my skin. The second kit I think is for those who have darker skin tone as some shades are more like a contour, bronze and dusky rose shade rather then a highlight for us fair kinda gals. But I think they would look amazing on those who darker skin tones and want a natural looking highlight!

The shades are powders and matte and can be layered together to create an effortless highlight. These palettes however are a little bit pricey for £6 but you do get 6 different shades so I guess a £1 for each!

Eye Products –

This eyeshadow palette was so difficult to work with. The shades are all shimmer-y and are so difficult to pat onto your eyelid. I used that one ember shade all over my eyelid and I do not know how many times I had to go back and forth and add more product for me to be completely happy with the end result.

In the end I did get a good enough look however, I would not buy this palette again. I loved using the palest of shades to highlight with but that’s it! I guess for the price being £3.50 you really don’t get much from this product.

 

Lip Products –

  • MUA Velvet Lip Lacquers –

You all know how much I love these velvet lip lacquers! They were the first matte liquid lipsticks I ever bought and applied onto my lips! I love them, some colours are misses but some are amazing! I will be doing a separate video showing you lip swatches of each of these shades .. so STAY TUNED for that!

Happy weekend!

Primark Haul

Hi everyone,

A new video was uploaded yesterday and I was so excited to share it with you all!

It was of what I got from Primark last September!

I really hope you enjoy watching!

I always love watching other primark hauls, so I was so excited to have my very own one up!

Primark is just an amazing shop which caters for everything you might need!

I always go in there with the feeling as though I am going to shop like crazy!! Infact I needed two baskets which I filled up in the end.

I honestly do not buy that many clothes, in fact  I can go a whole year without buying any new clothing but then when I go abroad, that is where the magic happens!

I guess I love the bargains that I find ! I think they really are worth it!

My favourite items were by far the star wars Pjs and the pink tote bag ❤ I absolutely cannot wait to wear the Pjs as it still is not too cold for it!

I also have been looking for black simple strappy heels for ages and these are bliss!

I also loved my It’s not me It’s you cat pillow! I obviously had to get it!

Anyways, this was a short post just sharing with you my latest clothing haul video!

I really hope you enjoyed it, don’t forget to like & subscribe !!

I love using this blush, it is not a blush I would use every day as it is a bit on the pink side. But I loved interpreting it with this look. This again I ordered from the Maltese online shopping website.

New products on the MUA website!!

Hi everyone, 

So a few days ago I posted on MUA releasing new products – one of them being 3 new shades in the Velvet Lip Lacquer line.

You can visit MUA (Makeup Academy) on http://www.muastore.co.uk 

(All images are from their website.)

Well, they have been released, along with a few other products.

I of course already made an order – no I did not buy everything but only what I wanted 🙂

So in this blog post I am going to share with you guys all the products that came out plus what I bought. Hopefully this week or next week I receive my order and will be able to try the products out.

I think the products that I was most excited for were the new MUA Luxe Velvet Lip Lacquer shades. There are 3 new shades in the collection.

One of them is the base lip coat you can call it. It basically is a pure white colour where you put this first on your lips as the base. Then you should apply the other colour – maybe one of the other two shades – as the next layer.

The white shade will help the other colour become more emphasized on the lip !! As is called a colour enhancer, therefore it should enhance the lip shade that you would put on top of it!

The other two shades are summer shades.

We have one called Sugar Coated and once you see it, it truly reminds me of the colour of candy floss. It looks like a nice frosted pink.

The other shade is quite unique and it is called Iced. This shade is one which you cannot wear on an everyday however I guess if you are brave enough to apply this colour, then go for it! I truly believe that with this shade comes a bold look!

I of course bought all these three shades and cannot wait to try them out. I am also excited to try Iced and Sugar Coated together to see what lip effect I can come up with!

These are £3 each.

Another complete new product is a new range of lip liners. They are called the MUA Luxe Precision Lip Liners. I personally didn’t buy any as I don’t tend to reach for lip liners as much. But I am curious of how the formula is.

These come in 5 shades and they actually go hand in hand with there Vivid Intense Lipsticks because they have the same shades and names.

The packaging of these lip liners is too cute ! These are £3 each.

MUA also released 2 new eyeshadow palettes. I am always so excited when they release new eyeshadow palettes. I only chose one and will tell which I’ve chosen after I have written about both palettes.

On their website – as I have not tried this out yet – it states that the shades are soft, silk shades which makes them easier to create a well blended look.

Screen Shot 2016-07-31 at 7.19.27 PMScreen Shot 2016-07-31 at 7.19.34 PM

The first one is the MUA Luxe Eyeshadow Palette called Enchanted.

Let’s start off with the cute packaging it comes in!! The colours are all blended in so perfectly.

Also the colours in the palette all go so well together!

Screen Shot 2016-07-31 at 7.20.50 PMScreen Shot 2016-07-31 at 7.24.07 PM

The second palette is called Enrapture. This includes eyeshadow shades that are more dark whilst the other one has soft and gentle shades.

This is definitely a palette to use for smokey eye looks.

They both retail for £6. And I of course went for the Enchanted palette as I saw myself reaching for that mostly. I am not saying that the Enrapture palette is not nice, I just tend to prefer softer tones!

Screen Shot 2016-07-31 at 7.26.01 PM

They also released the MUA Luxe Ombre Shimmer Stick which is perfect to create a summer glowing look. I however, did not see myself needing this so I opted out from adding it to my cart.

But because I am showing you everything that MUA released I will still include a small piece on this. And just by writing it I am thinking to myself – Kezia why did you not buy this product?

So on the MUA website it states that it adds a beautiful shimmer and shine with the 3 shade ombre highlighter. Which from the picture I cannot see how it comes in three shades all in one.

Anyways, these 3 shades are said to compliment one another and have a creamy consistency. They are easy to blend and can be applied to the face and body to add that gleam and highlight that you are wishing upon.

Again I am asking myself – WHY DID I NOT BUY THIS?!?!

This retails for £5. (oh now I remember – I actually purchased a highlighter that I have been looking at for a while – so I guess I still got that highlight in my shopping cart just not the newest one – I will share this product with you when I receive it.)

Screen Shot 2016-07-31 at 7.30.55 PM

The last new product I noticed on the website was MUA Profession 8 Wedge Makeup Sponges. 

These are said to work well with both liquid and cream formulas. I did not buy these just for now as I do not need them. But they only are £2 and you get 8 of them so I think it is quite a bargain!!

Anyways, that is all from me today!

I would like to tell you that TOMORROW a new video will be released on my channel – http://www.youtube.com/KezziesCorner as this week the schedule is not the same as usual as tomorrow the video is a collab with 2 of my friends 🙂 So stay tuned for that!!!

Hope you are having a lovely Sunday.

Love Kezia

$1 QIBEST LIQUID LIPSTICKS from EBAY

Hi Lip Lovers,

How are you all doing?

I am super excited to share with you these new lip faves of mine!

They are the QI BEST LIP SERIES LIQUID LIPSTICKS. You can purchase yours through ebay.com and I am sure you can find them through aliexpress.com too. But I bought mine from ebay!!!

These are 2 links you can check the upcoming lip products out –

http://www.ebay.com/itm/HU-SU-Waterpr…

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Beauty-Waterp…

I like the formula of this liquid lipstick. The smell of them, some are good but some are sort of chemically. This is a Chinese Brand so it is no replica of any kind.

For the price it actually does a great job. The lipsticks are pigmented however, there are certain colours like the bright pinks and dark reds that are patchy. So, you have to be extra careful when applying those and just try to work with them so you can get the best possible pay out of the lipstick.

In my opinion you should give them a try. One of my most favourites shades is shade number 18 (as they don’t have names but are each given a number). It is a mauve purple shade!

The lipsticks do dry completely to a matte finish even though on the tube it says lip gloss. It certainly is NOT a lip gloss but a MATTE LIQUID LIPSTICK!
