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!!
