Blogmas Day 14 – PixiGlow Cake – Review

Hi everyone, 

How are we all doing? It’s another Friday, yet again!! Days are flying by!! 

Today’s blog post is about a PR package I had received from Pixi. They always surprise me and send the cutest of packages. I am so grateful to receive from them and never thought that I would receive such things!! Thank you Pixi!! You made my day when I had received this!! 

This package included a selfie light – which I need!! So thank you so much for that Pixi!! And it also included the two PixiGlow Cake palettes. 

These light-diffusing palettes help achieve a natural, radiant and healthy complexion with flushed apple cheeks, subtle contouring and a glowing highlight. The shades in this palette are made to look like a gradient effect, which make it easier to create a sheer wash of luminous colour that enhances what Pixi call a PixiGlow

I love the idea of having a 3-in-1 palette consisting a blush, a highlight and a contour shade. Its formula is silky soft and provides with a nice natural complexion. It also includes some interesting ingredients – 
• Ceramides – which help restore the skin’s moisture barrier. 
• Peptides  – which plump and firm your skin. 
• Grape Seed Extract – which improves skin’s elasticity. 

How to apply – 

Use each colour of this pressed power combo individually or blend them together to achieve the perfect seamless PixiGlow. I have not tried using them altogether but I am intrigued to!!  

There are 2 different palettes – the GildedBare Glow and the PinkChampagne Glow.  Both palettes are super pigmented. 

The GIldedBare Glow is more subtle if you ask me and presents us with more natural looking shades. I love the highlight of this palette as well as the blush. As I said, I haven’t tried all three shades together at once, but I am intrigued to do this with this one. I would call this one the everyday PixiGlow if you ask me.

Whilst the other one in PinkChampagne Glow would be the night time version! The PinkChampagne Glow has a richer deep pink toned blush and contour shade. I think I prefer using these shades individually. 

Have you tried out these palettes? What do you think of them? If not, are you intrigued by them to do try them out eventually? Let me know in the comments down below!! Thank you so much for reading and for supporting my blog! 

I would like to thank Pixi once again for the beautiful products and package, I am forever grateful and you always surprise me!! I genuinely appreciate it from the bottom of my heart!

Love Kezia

My Favourite Summer Lipsticks

Hi everyone, 

Apologies for not writing the blog posts I promised last week! I guess dissertation stress is taking over! But I want to continue uploading regularly, be it on my blog or my youtube channel. When I am having a bad day, I just love sitting down at my vanity and apply makeup, it is just my sort of therapy to help me relax and get back at thinking more positively.

Anyways, going away from the deep talk as Eyal does on Love Island (Who watches the reality show??), today’s blog post is about my favourite summer lipsticks! I shared a video where I showed you swatches of my choices. So you could either watch that or read this blog post … or do both!!

In summer I love wearing bolder and brighter lipstick colours. I wear less makeup yes but that doesn’t stop me from wearing a vibrant lip shade! My top 10 choices cover pink nudes to fun reds and oranges to a stunning hot pink and even a purple shade. Play around with colours, step out of your comfort zone and have fun with makeup!!

Here were my choices –

Pixi Pretties – Pixi X Chloe, Pixi X Weylie and Pixi X Dulce – Review

Hi Lovelies! 

I hope you are all doing well!! Today’s blog post is an exciting one! I cannot believe the package I received a few weeks ago! I never believed that I ever deserved such a package!

IMG_4827

IMG_4824

So a few days ago I received this amazing box from Pixi Beauty. I truly appreciate it so much, the packaging is amazing and the products found inside are just exquisite!

IMG_4793

Pixi collaborated with three Beauty Youtubers, one who I have been following ever since I started watching beauty youtubers online! They are 3 amazing ladies, three women who inspire me to continue doing what I am doing – Weylie Hoang, Chloe Morello & Dulce Candy!

Here is a video where I tested out all the products –

Products from the Collaborations

Pixi + Chloe – Palette Chloette – Romantic Radiance

IMG_4795

This romantic palette features some must haves from Chloe Morello. It includes three super silky blushes and six eyeshadow shades. It is also then includes a trio of two eye brow powders and a liner shades. The eyeshadow shades are so pretty and so pigmented!

Blush Swatches

I love the palette, yes I don’t get the small mirror they included in it but it is a cute palette for multi-use!

The shadow swatches

IMG_4803
The 2 eyebrow and 1 liner shade!

 

In the video I used the shades Knot and Unity for my eyebrows. And the Romance Shade as my blush! I loved the blush Romance shade, so beautiful and such a radiant and healthy pink on my cheeks!

Pixi + Chloe – Lip Icing – Cake –

IMG_4798

This liquid lip product adds an amazing 3D glimmer! You could use it on its own or you could use it on top of a lip colour for a gorgeous instant glow boost!! It is infused with nourishing rose hip and marula oil!!

I love using it on top of another lipstick, it just sits so well! I love the scent of it it’s amazing!!

Pixi + Weylie – Eyeshadow Palette Let’s Talk

IMG_4813

This palette includes beautiful shimmers and matte shades. I love this palette, it includes pigmented, blendable eye shadows! It is also a cute small palette, which is travel friendly!

IMG_4817
The shadow swatches

In the video I used the shades Potato and Beautis in the crease. I then used Bomb in my outer corner and blended everything together! I finally used Itty Bitty as my inner corner highlight and brow bone highlight. The Itty Bitty shade is a gorgeous colour, I love it and it gives the most radiant glow!

Pixi + Weylie Black Liner Duo – Felt Tip Liner + Kohl Liner

IMG_4819

This 2 in 1 Black Kohl pencil and liquid eyeliner duo is the perfect liner to add to your everyday eye makeup essentials!

IMG_4820

I love the liquid liner, it is so pigmented and creates the most deep black winged eye lined look! But I also loved the kohl liner and love using it on my waterline!

 Pixi + Dulce – Cafe con Dulce – Sweet Glow –

IMG_4805

This is just a beautiful palette with glowing shades which can be used as blushes, cheek highlights or lid hues to enhance and add luminosity!

IMG_4807
Cafe Con Dulce swatches

The colours in this palette are just so beautiful, so shimmery and just super pigmented! I love it! In the video I used Bon Bon as my eyeshadow base shade and then I used Brillante as my cheek bone highlight! I loved this as my cheek highlight, I love the natural glow it gives! Simply beautiful!

Again, this palette has some stunning shades chosen by Dulce! They are a velvety rich colour to both your lips and cheeks as a blush! The multi-use formula has antioxidants and minerals to help keep the skin soft and hydrated! That sounds amazing, doesn’t it?

The shades apply easily and smoothly! I love the shades, they are so beautiful! The shade I used in the video was Enamorada! It is such a cute pink shade!

 

Here is the finished look I created using all these products –

PIXI Glow Tonic, Rose Caviar Essence, Rose Flash Balm and Matte Lipsticks – REVIEW

Hi everyone!!

Hope you are all doing well! So I am back with another blog post! Today’s blog post is all about some Pixi Beauty UK products! I am so blessed and grateful to have received them from Pixi Beauty UK! Thank you so much I truly appreciate them! And the packaging they came is just adorable!!

Screen Shot 2018-02-08 at 09.34.40

IMG_3393

IMG_3397

The first product I will be writing about is the Pixi Skin Treats Glow Tonic. It came in the cutest box which I am never ever getting rid of! This is an amazing exfoliator for the skin with Glycolic Acid. It includes Aloe vera which soothes and hydrates the skin. Additionally, it has Ginseng which improves circulation and energises the skin!

Screen Shot 2018-02-08 at 21.52.28

It also helps in refining the appearances of pores and helps cell renewal to reveal brighter and more glowing skin! It balances and heals skin for a radiant and healthier glow to the skin! It is alcohol free and suitable for all skin types and most importantly it is NOT tested on animals as all of Pixi products are cruelty free! What more could you want?

Screen Shot 2018-02-08 at 21.52.09
It also came with my NAME!!! AHHH!!

How to use: 

Preferably use it on face however I find that it worked well on my body however, I only use twice a week on my body. If applying it to the face, use it after you have cleansed your face and then get a cotton pad and apply the toner to it and rub it gently into the skin.

My Thoughts on the product … 

So basically this is a facial toner however I kind of use it all over my body. I mean the size it came in was HUGE. And if you buy it you get a total of 250ml so like I found ways to use it. I have dry skin especially on my back and thanks to the Pixi Glow Tonic my back is back to being smooth and non patchy so I love it! I have introduced it to my skincare routine and wouldn’t change it for the world! Definitely a must have and skincare essential.

Pixi Rose Caviar Essence

IMG_3400

This comes in the cutest of smells I just love it!! This is due to the encapsulated flower oils it has together with its weightless serum-essence that melts on the skin delivering fresh botanicals which help in hydrating and restoring skin’s brightness.

It includes antioxidant rich natural oils that help soften, refine and tone the skin and is suitable for all skin types. Again of course it is NOT tested on animals and is paraben free!

How to use:

Apply after having cleansed and toned your skin. Apple a pea size amount and gently rub it into the skin letting it get absorbed!

My Thoughts on the product … 

Ok this product like I said has a lovely smell! It helps brighten up my skin and helps make it not look dull. I love how it refreshes my skin and works well with the Glow Tonic and Rose Flash Balm which I will be talking about next!

Pixi Rose Flash Balm 

IMG_3403

The balm helps with tired skin and helps with signs of fatigue! It is a 3 in 1 product which is oil free. It can be an instant moisturiser which helps brighten the skin. Or else as a mask which helps to revitalise your skin. And finally it can be a primer to prep the skin for a perfect makeup look! It is suitable for all skin types, NOT tested on animals and is paraben free. 

How to use:

You could use it in the morning or evening when needed. As a moisturiser just apply a small layer after you cleanse your skin. As a primer you only need a pea size amount so apply a thin layer to the face and neck after you have cleansed your skin. Do not rub and follow with foundation if you would like. To use as a mask, apply a thicker layer and leave it on for 5 minutes. You could use this 2 to 3 times a week as a mask!

My thoughts on the product … 

My favourite way of using this would be as a primer. I guess it would act as my moisturiser too because you are applying it in the same way. As a mask I found that it left my skin red, however, I did like the after effect that it gave my skin of making it look more awake and brightened! So maybe I will try and give it a shot again!

Pixi Matte Last Liquid Lip

IMG_3404

These lipsticks are longwearing and comfortable plus they are infused with rosehip oil! The quickly set into a matte finish whilst also leaving the lips hydrated! Colours are universally flattering and wearable and they apply smoothly in a single stroke! The applicator is a unique Pixi Petal applicator which helps with an easy and precise application. It is NOT tested on animals and is paraben free. 

My thoughts …

I just love wearing these lipsticks. I love matte finishes and these dry so quickly and are so hydrating that you don’t feel as though you have a matte lipstick on! The shades are beautiful and can I just say the SCENT is amazing!! I love them! And the packaging so cute!!

Here are lip swatches of each of the shades!

Collective Makeup Haul

Hi Makeup lovers,

How are you all doing today?

I simply had to come here and share with you all my latest video! This time it was all about the latest makeup products to my collection.

Now I purchased these all throughout autumn/winter so I did not purchase these all at one go!!

Here were the products I purchased – 

MAC Retro Matte – Ruby Woo

A perfect red matte lipstick – love the red shade of this lipstick and it is one of the most popular shades of Mac lipsticks!
MAC Retro Matte Liquid Lipstick – Topped with Brandy

MAC recently came out with new shades in their Retro Matte liquid lipstick line and I had to pick this shade! It’s a lovely a deep brown shade.
Purchased from Cult Beauty –
Pixi – It’s Judy Time Eyeshadow Palette

I love this eyeshadow palette. The shadows are very pigmented and last all day. They are also easy to blend.
NYX Strobe Genius Illumination Palette

I love this palette. I love the powder highlights and they have a lovely finish.
Purchased from NYX Malta –
NYX HD Photogenic Foundation

I tried this once and was a little disappointed as I had high hopes for this foundation! I thought it would have high coverage but it isn’t so. In my opinion it’s more of a foundation with medium coverage. Will try to test it out more.
NYX Soft Matte Lip Cream – Stockholm & London

I love the formula of these lip creams. They don’t last long but they are so small so you can easily take them with you wherever you go to reapply.
NYX HD Photogenic Concealer – Fair

I love this concealer. It stays nicely on the under eye regions of the face and is long lasting. It also has a lovely finish and doesn’t crease when set well with the right powder!
Sleek – Precious Metals Highlighting Palette

I love this highlighting palettes. I love the cream highlight and just by using my fingertips I apply it to my highest parts of my cheekbones. It just have the perfect golden shimmer highlights!
Purchased from ladymakeup.eu

Don’t forget that I have a 10% discount code that you can use at checkout – KEZIA10
NYX High Voltage Lipstick – Wine and Dine

Love the shade of this lipstick – such a gorgeous deep wine.
MUA – Velvet Lip Lacquer – Passion

This is a gorgeous coral peach shade – perfect for the summer season!
L’Oreal True Match Foundation

Ever since I tried this foundation I absolutely fell in love with. It is such a lovely foundation with buildable coverage! Lasts for a while but you will definitely need to retouch it after a couple of hours. It is also not heavy on the skin.
L’Oreal Color Caresse Shine Stain – Berry Persistent and Lilac Everafter

I don’t like these much – they are very patchy and sticky.
Golden Rose Lipstick – Shade 12

Have’t tried this out on the lips yet!
Catrice All Matt Plus Foundation

I haven’t tried this one out yet but when I do I will surely let you all know!
Catrice Liquid Camouflage Concealer – Porcelain

I have been loving this concealer! It sits well and doesn’t crease! However I prefer the NYX one over this.
Catrice Glow Mineral Highlighting Powder – Shade 10 Light Infusion

This is such a pretty highlight and you can work it out to be an intense one too!

This powder works great and I can mattify my foundation and help it last longer. It has a lovely finish!
Purchased from Flormar Malta –
Flormar Matt Touch Foundation

I love this foundation – love that it has ingredients that also helps the skin! I love the finish of this foundation and it isn’t tacky either!
Flormar Loose Powder

This powder works well with the foundation from Flormar! It just sets everything so nicely and helps it last longer.
Flormar Ultra Black Eyeliner

I am embarrassed to say this but I haven’t tried this out yet.
Flormar Silk Matte Liquid Lipstick – Dark Violet and Fall Rose

I love these matte lipsticks – they honestly last long. They don’t have a strong scent to them but I love the finish look of these 2 lipsticks!
Purchased from Kiko (Rome) –
Kiko Universal Fit Hydrating Foundation

This is a great everyday natural foundation. It is a little sticky at first but do not worry it will settle down nicely!

OMG I love this blush. Besides the fact that it has amazing packaging, it also blends nicely on the skin! I love the two pink shades of the blush they blend nicely together.
Wycon Prime & Fine Powder

I love this powder, it was one of my monthly favourites of April. I just love the finished look it gives!
Wycon Champagne Party Lips – Monroe

This lipstick is goals – it just have a lovely red shade to it – the perfect signature to a Marilyn Monroe look.
