Blogmas Day 20 – Trying out some new Rimmel Products!

Hi Lovelies,

I hope you are all enjoying your Thursday!!

Today’s blogmas post is all about some new Rimmel Products! I received these as I had participated in a campaign with Rimmel. It was all about beauty cyberbullying and I was so happy to be a part of such a campaign in raising more awareness on beauty cyberbullying.

For anyone who’s reading this, please if you’re experiencing this or know someone who is, encourage them or try to yourself speak up and stand up for yourself. Don’t let anyone take control of how you look at yourself and how you feel about yourself! You are special, you are beautiful and you are amazing !! Take care of yourself and don’t push yourself aside because of someone else’s words!

So yeah, Rimmel London Malta kindly then shared with me these products and would love to share my thoughts on these products with you all! But before I do so, I would love to say a BIG thank you to Rimmel London Malta for this amazing opportunity!!

The products came in this cute makeup bag!! And here are the products we received.

Rimmel Maxi Blush – I received this beauty of a natural pink blush in the shade exposed. I love how it blends out on my skin and is just a cute everyday pink shade!

Rimmel Wonder Wing Eyeliner – I love this eyeliner, my old one was getting a bit old so I needed an updated one! I love that it creates a pitch black line and has a pointed tip.

Rimmel Wonder Swipe 2 in 1 Liner to Shadow – I love this product as it is both a liner and an eyeshadow. It is in the shade Instafamous and is this beautiful gold for the perfect holiday look. I love using it as a liner on top of black eyeliner and I could blend it out to use as an eyeshadow.

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Wonder Wing Mascara – I have tried this mascara before as I bought it back in Scotland and I love it. It has a unique 2-sided brush which helps create a perfect winged look or flared out look. It helps lift up your lashes and is smudge proof. I do notice that it is a little clumpy so you have to be careful of that but apart from that i love it and have been reaching for it!

Rimmel Stay Satin Liquid Lipstick – So I love that they came up with this new line of liquid lipsticks with a satin formula. I love their matte lipsticks but I love this formula even more!! This shade is in For Sure and I think I am going to use it for my New Year’s Look!!! If you didn’t know that Rimmel brought out this formula, then Get To Know!!!

Tomorrow’s video will be featuring these products so stay tuned to see these products live in action!! Until then, I hope you enjoyed reading this and if you tried any of these products, let me know what you thought of them!!! Don’t forget to visit my Facebook Page and Instagram to participate in my Givaways that I have going on!!

Love Kezia

Rimmel #InkMe Stamp & Sticker Tattoo & Eylure Spring/Summer 2018 Collection – Review

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all having a lovely Sunday! Today’s blog post is all about some new products from Rimmel London and Eylure that I recently received! They are also products which are perfect for creating festival makeup looks!!

IMG_5025.jpg

Rimmel London have released Ink Me Stamp Tattoos in the shape of a heart and a star. In just seconds you can use these to create a cute design on your skin. They work so easily and create a patch free heart or star! I love them!

IMG_5023

I also got to try out the Rimmel Ink Me Sticker Tattoos. They remind me of those stick on tattoos you used to find in bubble gums back in the day. I used to be told off by my dad for putting them on. Oh the memories!

IMG_5021

These are so easy to use, you get two sheets in a pack full of different shapes and designs. Perfect for festival makeup looks or a fun and creative one. They can be applied in a matter of seconds. What I did was I cut around the shape I wanted then I took off the transparent sheet and placed the shape on where I wanted it to go on my skin and with a damp cloth I rubbed it on the sheet and I gently peeled it off and voila the shape was right where I wanted it! Was so happy with how easy it was to do!

IMG_5018

Another two products I received were from Eylure. I love the brand for their false lashes, they have so many styles and I actually manage to apply their lashes! I received the set called Enchanted Roses and Thorns & Enchanted Heartbreaker. The first one is more natural whilst the second is more out there. I loved the Roses and Thorns, they applied so nicely with the glue found in the packet!

IMG_4940

IMG_4963

IMG_4962 2

I recommend these products if you are looking for makeup products for festival makeup looks. Eylure Lashes are also perfect for any night out or even for wedding makeup looks especially the Roses & Thorns set!

I also uploaded a video using these products whilst creating my very own Festival Makeup Look! Check it out right here –

Have you guys tried out any of these products? Let me know in the comment down below!

I would like to thank Rimmel Malta and Eylure Lashes Malta for the products!

Thank you for reading!

New Rimmel London Face Products – Review

Hi lovelies, 

How are you all doing? It’s a NEW week and my goodness days are flying by!! I am so excited to share with you this blog post today, it’s about one of my favourite drugstore brands and a brand that I have been using for quite a while now – Rimmel London. 

I would like to thank Rimmel London Malta and Vivian Corporation for these products!  Both these products are from Rimmel’s Insta Range! 

IMG_4603

I have been trying these out for a week now. I personally do not have much practice when it comes to contouring with cream products, but I tried. And I hope to keep trying to get better at contouring!

INSTA CONCEAL & CONTOUR PALETTE

IMG_4604.jpg

We are first going to start talking about this Conceal and Contour Palette. It comes with 3 shades – a concealer, a contour shade and a highlight shade. At the back of the palette, it gives you instructions on where to apply the three shades – very helpful!

This palette will help you sculpt and create a naturally flawless complexion with defined features. The best way to use this product is after you prime and apply foundation.

I followed the instructions of where to apply the 3 shades –

IMG_4473.jpg

This product comes in 3 shadesLight, Medium and Dark. The one I have is the medium. At first I was sort of worried because being in Stirling, my Maltese complexion has gone – not that I was tanned before but I have always been on the fair side. But now I am very fair. But when blending out those shades, they really blended out well and I liked the finished look.

IMG_4607.jpg
From Left to Right – Concealer, Contour & Highlight Shade

The highlight shade is very sheer and it isn’t that shiny highlight you would want. I liked the contour shade the most even though the concealer did blend out nicely under my eyes and once I set it with powder it did not crease and lasted all day! 

IMG_4484.jpg

INSTA DUO CONTOUR STICK

IMG_4609.jpg

The second product I will be writing about today is this new Duo Contour Stick which comes with a contour shade on one side and a highlight on the other. I prefer this highlight shade to the one in the palette.

IMG_4610

This product is perfect for contouring your cheekbones, nose and cupid bow. It provides for an easy application and defines facial features. I loved applying this to my skin, it is very creamy. The contour stick again comes in 3 shades – Light, Medium and Dark and I have the medium one. I applied this after I applied the shades from the previous palette but I have also used it on its own after applying foundation. I love how easy it was to apply the product and I prefer using this kind of cream contour product rather than a powder contour.

IMG_4492

I like how they blend into the skin without any trouble and the highlight is very sheer but brighter than the one I mentioned above. It’s a perfect highlight for an everyday makeup tutorial. 

IMG_4499
I really like how the products helped me contour my nose!

And that was my review on these 2 brand new face products from Rimmel London! 

Have you tried either one of the product? What did you think of them? Let me know in the comments down below!! 

Again I would like to thank Rimmel London Malta and Vivian Corporation for these products!  I will surely continue using them to get better at my contouring game!

Have a lovely week!! 

Love Kezia

Review – NEW Rimmel London Products

Hi everyone, 

Cannot believe that today marks the final day of 2017!! I wish you all the best for the New Year and be safe for this evening’s festivities!! Thank you to everyone who has supported me, without you all KezziesCorner wouldn’t be the same!! Love you all!!

IMG_3099 2

Today’s blog post is all about some NEW products from Rimmel London. I would like to thank Rimmel London Malta and Vivian Corporation for the products and the cute little makeup bag!

I tested them out whilst creating a NYE makeup look. You could watch the tutorial (which includes only RIMMEL products) right here –

The products that I tested out where the following –

IMG_3113

Rimmel Magnif’eyes Smoke Edition Palette

IMG_3106

This eyeshadow palette comes with 12 different shades. It’s a palette for those of you who are wanting a smokey shadowed look. I love how the palette includes lots of shimmer shades. The palette also comes with a double-ended applicator. I loved using the brush for my inner corner highlight.

IMG_3105

I found the shades to be very pigmented, very smooth and quite blendable together. The colours are intense and the shades are crease proof and smear proof. The shadows lasted all day and I wet the shimmer shadows to intensify their effect and they worked out perfectly!

IMG_2951
The look I created using this palette

All in all it’s a cute little palette to have in your collection, perfect for a beginner starting in makeup and wants to enhance their smokey shadow looks.

Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colour in Firestarter

IMG_3107

I have tried these lipsticks before and also wrote a little review on them which you can read here

However, I can add that I LOVE this shade, it’s a perfect red in the perfect formula. It lasts all day and doesn’t transfer onto your chin whilst eating as it dries down completely matte.

IMG_3108

It is also not a drying formula at all and it is very creamy! There are other different shades from this liquid lipstick line like nudes, pinks and a plum shade too! I really recommend these liquid lipsticks as I think they are one of the best ones found at the drugstore.

Rimmel Lip Art Lip Top Coat in Blush Gold

IMG_3109

I love the concept of this lip topper. I applied this shade – Blush Gold – after Firestarter dried down. I applied it to the centre of my lips and then blended it out using my fingertips. I love the effect it gave and it is a perfect lip topper for the holidays!!

IMG_3110

It isn’t sticky at all and it feels so lightweight! Love the effect it gave and it also made my lips look more plump!

And those were the NEW products I tried out thanks to Rimmel London Malta and Vivian Corporation.

I really liked the two lip products and using them with the Smoke Edition Palette helped me create a NYE makeup look perfect for this evening. What do you guys think? Comment down below and also tell me what you will be doing on New Year’s Eve! 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!! 

Thank you so much for reading!!

Blogmas Day 1 – New products from Rimmel – Review

Hi Everyone, 

It is officially the 1st of December!! I cannot believe that December is already here!! Excited for Christmas Eve, Christmas Lunch and THE NEW YEAR!! 

And like I said last week, I will be attempting to do Blogmas right here on my blog as I have done for the last 2 years!!

I love writing here on my blog and Blogmas is a good excuse to get to write a blog post a day. Although, I hope I will manage this year as I have an exam on the 11th and a thesis proposal due, so yeah!! Fingers crossed I will though!!

IMG_2603

So the first Blogmas Blog post is going to be about some new products from Rimmel. I would like to thank Rimmel London Malta and Vivian Corporation for the products, I am ever so so grateful!!

IMG_2607

So let us begin with reviewing the products. All four products are based around the EYES!!

#1 Brow this way – Brow Pomade – Fix & Fill – Shade 003 Dark

IMG_2609

I really liked the formula of this brow product, it filled in my brows so quickly and was so easy to use. If I did make a mistake, I could fix it easily.

I wish it was a product that you can simply roll up instead of having to sharpen it especially because I don’t have a sharpener in Stirling for this product’s size … Must bring/buy a sharpener!! 

My brows remained set all day as it has up to a 24 hour wear formula and it is smudge proof, waterproof and fade proof. All in all, I loved using this product!

#2 Scandal eyes – 24 HR Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eye pencil – Shade 003 Brown

IMG_2610

I love the formula of this eye pencil – it is so creamy and easy to apply. I loved applying it to my waterline and it just applied perfectly.

IMG_2611

I love the shade mine came in – 003 Brown, I think it is a makeup essential for your makeup collection!

#3 Wonder Wing Eyeliner – Shade 001 Black

IMG_2612

As you know I am quite picky when it comes to eyeliner pens. However, the Wonder Wing from Rimmel has passed my test! It has a stamp applicator developed by Rimmel and is made up of a smudge-proof formula.

IMG_2613Again this product was easy to apply, created a pitch black wing eyeliner and lasted all day!

IMG_2614

#4 Wonderfully Real Mascara with Keratin

IMG_2615

When I saw that this mascara contained Keratin I was intrigued! It also contains argan oil, so when applying this mascara you are also helping protect your lashes!

IMG_2616

I think this has been by far the softest mascara I have ever applied to my lashes! It has a rich and creamy formula, is flake proof and lasts all day. It has a wonder brush that helps with creating longer and fuller lashes. 

I have been applying this mascara on a daily basis and simply love the wear of it!

Here is an eye look using all 4 products!! 

Have you bought these products? Or are you now intrigued to do so? Comment down below and let me know!! 

Again thank you once again to Rimmel London Malta andVivian Corporation for the products!!

Thank you to everyone for reading!! Don’t forget to follow my blog!! This month I will have a blog post a day = BLOGMAS!! 

Until tomorrow … 

Love Kezia

December Makeup Favourites

Hi everyone, 

So December is over and I am not going to repeat how quick it passed and how we cannot believe its 2017 already, as I am sure that I am not the only one who is aware of this!

I have loved so many products and have tried out so many new ones too.

img_6936

But the products I shall be mentioning are all products I have used throughout the month of December, ones that I love.

These are all makeup products.

Would you like to see a non makeup related blog post? Let me know in the comments down below!

My December 2016 Favourites are – 

The Beauty Treats Roses Eyeshadow Palette

img_6924

I received this palette in a Sweet Sparkle Box. I didn’t think I would still use this palette however I have and did!

img_6925

The shades are all so pretty and from the photo you could see which are my favourite! I love that dusty pink/red it is gorgeous especially loved using it during the Christmas Season! The shadows all blend well and even though there is fall out it is something I can deal with!

ELF Blush – Tickled Pink

This is a fave oldie I have had for years! I love this blush, it is so subtle and natural. I love adding it to an all natural makeup look, you know to just add colour to the face. I miss ordering from elf, it was such a good and reasonable brand. I really must check again to see if the shipping rates have lowered, but last time I checked they were sky high!

Max Factor Smooth Miracle Primer

img_6914

I love this Primer, I don’t really understand primers sometimes, but I can see that this does something! It really helps minimise my pores, reduces shine and creates a lovely base for my foundation and the rest of my makeup look!

Max Factor Miracle Match Blur & Nourish Foundation

IMG_6917.JPG

This goes hands in hands with the primer. I have tried the primer with other foundations, however I never tried this foundation with other primers. The primer as I said really sets a nice base, and the foundation settles so well with it. I love the coverage that it has, it also lasts long and yes there is some shine after a few hours, but nothing a little powder can even it out!

Rimmel London Clear Complexion Transparent Powder

img_6918

This is a monthly favourite. I used to love the Rimmel London stay matte powder however I now switched to this one. I feel this is less heavier and more gentle on the skin. I love setting my under eyes and eyelids as well with this powder. And who wouldn’t love it for its inexpensive price!

Essence Get Big Lashes Volume Curl Mascara

img_6919

This is an oldie too and I absolutely love it. The wand is just good enough to hit all them lashes! It doesn’t transfer on the lid and creates such nice volumed lashes!

City Color Highlight Trio Palette

img_6920

This highlight palette I have found myself to levitate to a lot recently. I also got this from my Sweet Sparkle box! So yes thanks to the Sweet Sparkle box I have found new items that I adore!

img_6921

As you can see from the photo I LOVE those 2 lightest shades, I like mixing them in together to create that natural highlight glow!

Milani Matte Lipstick in Naked

img_6929

I have been loving this lipstick for work, for running errands, going to appointments; basically for an everyday makeup look that is natural and quick! This just gives the right amount of pink shade to my lip. The formula is all matte and lasts for a while too. Yes of course you will need to reapply it after eating as it does brush off.

Essence XXXL Longlasting Velvet Matte Lipgloss in Silky Red

img_6926

This is such a cute lipstick. I actually got this at the Essence event I attended with my friend Christabel and she actually got two of these. She was so nice as to give me one and I thank her for that! The formula of this lipstick is so nice and creamy. Yes you need to reapply it constantly throughout the day as it is not long lasting however it gives the loveliest of shades. That pinky red! Also it smells like a vanilla cupcake!

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Point Zero

img_6927

This was one of the lipsticks Kathleen Lights made! I love this it is such a lovely dusty brown perfect for autumn/winter. I guess if you are used to pinks everyday, this would be different. The formula of the satin lips is amazing and lasts long too!

So those were my December favourites, what were yours? 

Thank you so much for reading!! 

Love Kezia

Best Friend does my Voiceover Challenge!!

Everyone, it’s 2017!!! 

I hope you all had a lovely New Year’s! Mine went by in a blur! Literally it flew by, I didn’t realise how quick a day can pass when you are so tired from all the dancing that you did the night before!!

Anyway’s back on Saturday – the last day of 2016 – I uploaded a video and never got a chance to share it here on my blog. As I share every video I upload here on my blog I thought that this video couldn’t be the first one that I forget to share here!
