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!

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.

IMG_3007
The look I created using these products

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!!

My Favourite Nail Polishes –

#5 Catrice Brown Collection Nail Polish in Shade 02 Sophisticated Vogue 

20171210_154135

I love this nail polish shade, it really reminds me of the autumn months and the leaves that change colour! I love pairing this with a dark red nail polish too!

#4 Rimmel London Rita Ora Collection in Shade 812 Pedal to the Metal

20171210_154203

This is a pigmented and metallic grey and I just love the effect it gives to my short nails. Makes them look better than they actually are!! My nan loves this shade also hehe!

#3 Studio London Nail Polish (No Shade Number Sorry!) 

20171210_154147

This is a lovely mauve purple shade with specs of glitter. I love this on it’s own or else pairing it with a pastel pink but I would do that not during these cold months!

#2 Studio London Nail Polish ( No Shade Number Sorry!) 

20171210_154156

This is a cute glittery light brown with a bit of pink … I don’t know how to describe it but it is perfect for the Christmas time in my opinion.

#1 Rimmel London Super Gel Nail Polish in Shade 45 Flamenco Beach 

20171210_154216

I of course had to include a red here because it is Christmas time and I guess it is a must plus this is a Blogmas Post so why the heck not! But I love this red shade – perfect for the holidays!

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

New Products from Rimmel & Eylure – First Impressions

Hi everyone,

Hope you are all doing well!

Today I am coming to you with a REVIEW on some products from two brands – Rimmel and Eylure.

Some products were sent to me and I would like to thank Rimmel Malta and Eylure Malta for sending me these products and giving me the chance to review them for you guys! I really enjoyed trying them out!

So let’s begin! 

IMG_1034

I created a summer-y eye look thanks to the Jaclyn Hill Eyeshadow palette and then tamed my brows thanks to the Rimmel Brow this Way – 3 in 1 Soft Powder in Medium Brown. I ordered this of Feelunique. I had never tried out any powder brow product, but I really loved using this one.

IMG_1364

IMG_1024.JPG

I filled in my brows so fast and the product just went on smoothly. The powder is pigmented so go in with a light hand.

IMG_1368.JPG

 

IMG_1046

I then tested out on one eye the – Eylure New Patented Effect – Layered Lash – 3 Dimension in number 119 Lashes. [These were sent to me] These lashes are layered and thanks to that they give more length and volume.

The pack also came with a glue and I love the glues that come with these Eylure sets as they stick the lashes on well and they also last long. What I loved about these lashes is that they were easy to apply and they had a natural effect to them.

;ashes 2

I had to cut a piece off the fake lash as they were a little too big for my eyes; so make sure to measure them to see if they are a good size fit.

IMG_1366

IMG_1051

I then tested out the Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara on the other eye. [This product was sent to me] I shook the mascara and when you shake it, this will help it to remain clump free. The mascara lengthened and separated my lashes ever so well.

It didn’t transfer on my eyelid and it volumised my lashes nicely. I love the concept of shaking it in order to remain clump free, do it every so often.

Here is a photo that shows the lashes on one eye and the mascara on the other eye –

e

I then stuck the Eylure lashes on the other eye and used the Rimmel Volume Shake Mascara to set my lashes together with my real lashes on the right eye – as you can see you will notice immediately the difference between the two eyes.

I then also got to try out the Rimmel Radiance Brick Multi Tonal Shimmer Powder in 001 Light. [This product was sent to me]. The powder contains speckles of glitter, it is a mix of light beige to darker brown tones.

IMG_1075

IMG_1360

IMG_1361

I love how it applied on the skin, it is a simple and natural bronzer that just gives you a slight sunkissed look. So if you are like me and don’t like those chalky brown bronzers then this is the one for you. You can also use the lighter shade if you want a very subtle highlight.

IMG_1127

I then also tested out the NEW Rimmel Stay Matte Liquid Lip Colours. I managed to get my hands on them from Feelunique. I am so happy that Rimmel came out with these new matte liquid lipsticks!

IMG_1096

I got 5 different shades and with this look I used Be My Baby!

It’s a lovely nude shade. I find these lipsticks to creamy and not drying. They last long and have a very moussey consistency. There are lots of shades, mostly nudes. If you are a liquid lipstick lover then I highly recommend you trying them out!

The other shades I got were –

IMG_1358

Fire Starter – Gorgeous Red Shade

Blush – Baby Pink Shade

Rose & Shine – a Darker Pink Shade

Pink Bliss – Lighter Pink Shade

Overall finished makeup look –

And the final product I shall be reviewing is the Eylure Body Tape – Pre Cut Adhesive Stripes. [This product was sent to me] They come in 2 shapes and in total you get 27 strips. I prefer the curved strips.

IMG_1370.JPG

They stick on really well and last long too. If you are wearing a top that might not allow to wear a bra or a stick on bra I really recommend these as these are another alternative. They are easy to use, long lasting and you can use them more than once!

I hope you enjoyed reading this blog post! I really enjoyed writing this up and also creating this look! Thank you so much for reading it!

Have you ever tried out any of these products from Rimmel or Eylure? Comment down below!

Again, thank you to both Rimmel Malta and Eylure Malta for these wonderful products!

Until next time,

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!

Love Kezia

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!

Love Kezia
