May 2017 Makeup Favourites

Hi Makeup Lovers,

How are you all doing? June has arrived, and with June here Malta has gotten a lot of sun and a lot of heat.

IMG_9634

But since May has passed I thought why not do a blog post all about my May 2017 favourites. I have been trying out some of these products for a while now, some have been at me longer than others. But anyways, here we go …

#1 Benefit – The POREfessional Face Primer 

IMG_9647

So as you know, I attended Fashion Week in Malta last week,  and this basically saved me! It is quite a heavy formula and very creamy but it does the job of hiding those yucky pores I so hate!

#2 Urban Decay – All Nighter Liquid Foundation

IMG_9646

Yes, this is quite a heavy foundation, but I really like how it sits and stays on my skin. It has a high coverage formula and just blends on nicely. I love applying this foundation with my Beauty Blender.

#3 NYX HD Photogenic Concealer 

IMG_9644

I love this concealer and have it in 2 shades. The shade I had been using mostly in May was CW 04 – Beige. I love using this shade to cover up my blemishes and any redness I would be having!

#4 Rimmel – Match Perfection Loose Powder – Translucent 

IMG_9645

I love using this powder to bake my under eye concealer. It just sets it so nicely and doesn’t get creased throughout the day. Mine has been at me for a few months now and the tub has gotten all messy! So maybe if this was in a better form of packaging I would love it even more!

#5 Anastasia Beverly Hills – Nicole Gurriero Glow Kit

IMG_9639IMG_9640

I love this highlighting palette, I had saved up for it and was so happy once it had arrived. It includes six gorgeous shades, and wouldn’t change it for anything. When I am going out for a special occasion I always whip this out! My favourite shades are Glo Getter and Day Dream.

#6 Violet Voss – Holy Grail Eyeshadow Palette 

IMG_9641IMG_9642

This is the last makeup product I bought and for now will not be buying more… I hope. But I had been saving up for it for a while and I finally got it. I was either going to buy this one or the HUDA beauty one but decided for this one. The pigmentation of these shadows is amazing and they blend so nicely. I love the colour choice in this palette, you can create so many different looks!

However, I do have one sad thing to say – I thought the packaging would be more of high end quality, instead it is quite bulky and for the price you pay I was a little bit disappointed by the box.

#7 BH Cosmetics Liquid Lipstick – Glory

IMG_9648IMG_9650

This is the perfect red shade! I love it and I love the formula of the BH Cosmetics Liquid Lipsticks. They literally last all day and they won’t go anywhere! In fact when removing them I turn into a clown because they really just stay there on the lips!

#8 Urban Decay – All Nighter Setting Spray

IMG_9643

Last week I needed my makeup to not run anywhere, I needed it to remain the way when I finished doing my makeup. And this is the product to keep any makeup going somewhere! I love this, it doesn’t have a scent and it settles nicely on the skin!

Those were my May 2017 favourites!

Have you tried any of these products? 

What were your May favourites? I would love to know!

TESTING OUT some NEW Rimmel Products, are they Spring Worthy?

Hi everyone,

IMG_8588

Today’s blog post is all about three new Rimmel products that you can purchase and try out. I received these from Rimmel a few days ago and I have tested them out a couple of times and am all set to give my honest opinions on the products.

Rimmel Waterproof Scandaleyes Bold Liquid eyeliner – 

IMG_8596

Now I am a big fan of their Glam Eyes Liquid Eyeliner! So when I saw that I get to try this out I was excited. However, I was not prepared for the ball tip applicator which is what I found when I opened the product.

IMG_8601

I am not used to applying liner with this applicator, so it was a little bit of a challenge. My arm shook a little but I still managed to create an even lined look on my top lash line! It has a lovely glossy black colour going to it and doesn’t transfer on the eyelids; even after having it on for a couple of hours.

IMG_8513

IMG_8602

I even went to dance with it and it didn’t transfer nor smudge and it is waterproof. It did fade a little but it wasn’t that noticeable. When it came to taking it off, it wasn’t much of a hassle either!

So apart from the ball tip applicator which I still have to get used to, I like the formula of this eyeliner and lasts throughout the day! But, I still think I prefer the Glam Eyes liquid liner over this one only because of the applicator!

Rimmel Oh My Gloss Oil Tint – 

IMG_8590

I don’t usually like lip glosses nor do I wear them a lot however, I was impressed by this gloss’ formula!

This is unlike any other gloss I have tried out as it has a blend of oils mixed in its formula. It claims to help care and comfort your lips which can sometimes be dry and cracked!

IMG_8597

IMG_8599

It has a lovely glossy finish and isn’t a sticky formula whereby I would get annoyed with it on my lips. It is a very lightweight formula and isn’t drying whatsoever. The shade that I have is 200 Master Pink and it just reminds me of a baby pink bubble gum! It also smells like one too!

IMG_8531

 

The finished look

Rimmel Rita Ora 60 Seconds Super Shine Nail Polish – 

IMG_8603

Now I get my nails done so I could not try this on my finger nails. However, that didn’t stop me from not trying it at all. So I got my toe nails prepped (I don’t really like my toes in general, my big toes especially are growing in the wrong direction!).

IMG_8549

The shade that this nail polish is in is 812 Pedal to the Metal. Can we just take a moment and focus on the name – love it and it goes perfect with the shade which is a bold and metallic grey. I love the brush of the nail polish as it is quite big and can easily cover all your nail at one coat.

IMG_8607

It has a shine finish and with this shade it shows even more, since the shade is metallic! The formula is so quick to dry (goes well with the name i.e. 60 seconds) and it therefore is perfect for those people who are impatient at waiting for their nail polish to dry!!

I really hope you enjoyed reading this blog post of mine. Have you ever tried any of these products? If so, then comment down below. And if you haven’t then tell me, are you intrigued of getting any of these items if not all?

Thank you so much for reading!

Blogmas Day 13 & 14 – Christmas Makeup Tutorial

Hi everyone,

Christmas is getting closer and closer, and what better way to prepare for the lovely holiday then plan a look?

15451366_10209966094521612_639740160_nHere is my Christmas Makeup Look that I would love to wear on that day!

Something really simple to do.

I love simple looks, meaning without any false lashes, not too much contour and just the right amount of highlight. That’s my style.

15451398_10209966094681616_267517699_n

The false lashes part is something I am trying to include but I get too nervous to even think about applying any false lashes. I have a pair locked up in my makeup collection waiting for me to use! But I just get so nervous of messing it up so I don’t even bother with the stress … one day … one day!!

Anyways, for those of you who are interested in the Christmas Look I created then here is the video for you to watch! I really hope you like it!!

Huge London Makeup Haul

Before I start this blog post I would like to remind everyone that I live in Malta. Therefore, stores like Urban Decay, Benefit, Makeup Forever and Huda are not found here where I live.

That is why I ended up buying quite a handful because I wanted to make sure that some stuff on my wishlist which is usually hard to order from Malta, I bought whilst I was in London.

I don’t do this type of shopping on a regular basis, so when I found myself in London surrounded by all these amazing stores, I splurged and I guess treated myself.

Anywho’s if you have not realised this blog post is going to be about my latest Youtube video found on my channel – http://www.youtube.com/KezziesCorner

It shows you what I got whilst I was in London back in December. But I also included an order I had made on Feelunique a few days before as there was a good sale going around.

So I put everything in one not to do two haul videos after one another!!

screen-shot-2016-11-16-at-22-05-15

I have had time to try out these products. So whilst giving swatches in the video I also gave a mini review.

So be sure to check out my video if you would like to know more about the product. As what I am going to be writing in this blog post may just be a sentence or two on the products.

Here is the video – 

The products that were mentioned – 

  • Benefit Porefessional Primer

img_5275

I have been wanting this primer in forever! I am so happy I got it and let me just say I only use this when I need to cover up my pores like crazy. I do not want to use this on a day to day basis or whenever I come to apply my makeup.

Besides it being an expensive primer, for me it is more difficult to get so I have to take care of this baby and make it last for a really long time !!

  • Urban Decay All Nighter Liquid Foundation

This foundation is perfect! It gives you a nice coverage and is a very nice foundation to have on your skin. It does not feel heavy or cakey whatsoever.

  • Urban Decay All Nighter Makeup Spray

I actually have not tried out this spray yet as I am using another one.

  • Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer

I have tried this concealer with the foundation and it really does cover dark circles under your eyes or any blemishes. I love this and finds that it settles down nicely with the foundation.
 

  • HUDA Lip Contour – Icon

This is a gorgeous shade and perfect for fall! I love it !

  • HUDA Beauty Liquid Matte – Bombshell

I did not like the shade at first, but then grew to love it. The formula of it is so amazing and not drying at all!!

img_5296

  • Kiko 30 Days Extension Mascara

I have tried this but not stuck with it. So I cannot say if it works or not. I should finish the 30 days and so I should start again and see if I can finish my task!!

  • Kiko Long Eyes Active Mascara

I love this, it gives you natural looking long lashes.

  • Kiko Extra Sculpt Waterproof Mascara

This gives you the extra volume, and is my favourite between the 2 kiko Mascara that I tried so far!

img_5295

  • Vichy Purete Thermale waterproof eye makeup remover

This eye makeup remover works so well and removes all your eye makeup !! So you will not be waking up looking like a PANDA !!

  • Boots Hair Tangle Teezer

I love my hair detangler !! Love using it in the shower to spread out my conditioner and love using it after I come out of the shower to remove any knots!!

  • Sleek Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip creams – Fired Up, Vino Tinto, Birthday Suit, Petal and Velvet Slipper

img_5287

This formula of liquid lipsticks is very creamy. Even though it is not long lasting it is one of my favourite formulas nonetheless.

If you would like to see all the swatches of the shades please watch the video!

If you would like me to do a lip swatch video, let me know in the comments down below!!

  • Maybelline Vivid Matte Liquid Lipsticks – Nude Flush

I love this shade, such a natural everyday pink.

  • Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

I have been wanting this mascara in forever as I see so many bloggers using this! And I love the result it gives, not clumpy, doesn’t transfer on the lids and gives great results!

img_5273

  • Real Techniques Blending Sponge

I bought this as a backup as I already use one. I love it especially for blending out the concealer.

  • Elizabeth Arden Flawless Finish Perfectly Satin 24 HR Foundation

Even though I bought mine in the wrong shade it still settles nicely on the skin and gives great coverage!

img_5289

  • Makeup Forever HD Foundation

I love love this foundation. Between the All Nighter by Urban Decay and this, now that I have tried both equally I love them equally. They have similar finished results in my opinion!!

img_5274

  • Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer

I love this concealer. So many of these products were influneced by Kathleen Lights for me to buy !! And she was right about this one !! I love it as an under eye brightener!

  • Revlon Colorstay Makeup Foundation Normal to Dry Skin

Have not tried this out yet, but have had another one before. And I used to love it and only wear it for special occasions as it has full coverage.

img_5288

  • Rimmel Fresher Skin Breathable Natural Finish Foundation

When applying this it truly feels so refreshing on your skin. Very light coverage, perfect for a natural look.

  • Rimmel Clear Clarifying Powder

This was a backup, so because of that you all know that I love it! And it was super cheap on feelunique !!

  • Rimmel Fix & Perfect Makeup Primer

I have done a review about this primer on my blog. So if you want to check it out click here.

  • Rimmel Day to Night Mascara

I love the mascara and love the idea of having two wands!!

  • Rimmel Volume Colorist Mascara

Beautiful mascara but sometimes it clumps my lashes together.

  • Rimmel Scandal Eyes Thick & Thin Eye Liner

I don’t quite like this, it is uneven and not a lot of product comes out.

img_5276

  • theBalm Marylou Manizer Highlight

I saw all the hype on this so of course when I saw it at Superdrug I had to get it! And I love it! I feel that it is not chalky, and gives a lovely highlight. It blends very well too.

img_5280

  • Mac Lipstick – Lustering

Cute pink shade !!

  • Mac Lipliner – Soar

Love this as a fall shade and love the lip liner formula of Mac. Again if you would like to see swatches please watch my video !!

img_5285

So that is it!! Hope this wasn’t that long!!

Thank you so much for reading !!
