How are you all doing? Hope you are all having a lovely Friday! This week flew by so fast!
Today’s blog post is all about liquid lipsticks from Shop Miss A. If you didn’t know Shop Miss A is an online website that sells everything for $1 ONLY! It has makeup brushes, accessories and makeup.
I love their fake lashes and liquid lipsticks! I think they are a true bargain!
If you have not seen my latest video, I showed lip swatches of all the shades that I will be mentioning in today’s blog post!
I tried out three different lipstick collections – AOA Wonder Matte Liquid Lipsticks, Amuse Matte Liquid Lipsticks and Amuse Glam Matte Lipglosses.My favourite by far is the AOA, they have wonderful pigments and they last long. They also have a nice scent to them unlike the others. The other two are slightly patchy but still work fine.
Happy Monday, here in Scotland we have a bank holiday! So I thought it’s a perfect timing to write up a blog post before I start up my day full of studying! Wish me luck!!
I hope you all had a great Easter with your family and loved ones!
Today’s blog post is all about the brand called Anatomicals! I love the concept of this skincare brand that ‘Only Wants You For Your Body’! And it is also a cruelty free skincare brand! They have a variety of products from face masks to lip scrubs to body products too! I would like to thank Anatomicals UK for these products! I had fun trying them out and I really am grateful for this opportunity!
To all my Maltese followers you can order Anatomicals products right here – http://www.anatomicals.com.mt/ – they have FREE SHIPPING for Malta !! However, if you visit their UK website it’s quite unique!! I really invite you to check it out by CLICKING HERE.
I have only tried out the anti-stress face mask because I was having a stressful day so I needed some de-stressing pamper time! I love the smell you find once you open the packet – so chocolate-y –and there is a lot of product in the packet! In fact I saved the packet for another use as I did not use all the mask at one go!
I love how it applied on the skin, felt so refreshing and cool! Left it on for 15 minutesand it dried up really quickly I must say, then gently rinsed it off. It came off easily without making a big messand my skin felt smooth and soft! I loved it and cannot wait to try out the other two!!
#2 Body Lotion (I could not find it online at the time being but keep an eye out for this product!)
I love the name of this lotion!! Smoother butts love coconuts – Coconut and Mango Body Lotion!! I love the smell of this body lotion reminds me of SUMMER!! Loved using it after having washed my body! It made my skin feel super soft and made my skin smell so good!! Love using it and it has become a staple in my shower routine!
This Lip Balmhas saved my very dry and very chapped lips!! Here in Scotland it gets so cold and my lips have become so dry! In Malta, I never had this kind of problem so this product came at a perfect time!! I LOVE …. BUT LOVE the smell of this lip balm it reminds me of hazelnuts! It comes out just like a gloss so your lips not only feel less dry but are glossy too!! WIN WIN!!
#4 Anatomicals Bichotin Charcoal Toothbrush (Could not find it online!)
This is the cutest toothbrush I have ever owned! It’s yellow and pink and comes with a cute pink case too! I loved using it, it helps me get into those annoying spots which are hard to reach whilst brushing my teeth! Really loved this toothbrush – too cute!!
And those were all the products I tried out from Anatomicals! Again, I would like to thank Anatomicals UK for these products!!
Have you ever tried out any of these products? Let me know in the comments down below!!
Thank you so much for reading!! Join me again on Friday for another Blog Post!
Now I don’t know if the colour of both these items would be too much together but you could mix and match these two pieces with other clothing items. Like the top you could wear it with a black high waisted skirt whilst the trousers you could wear it with the same top but maybe in white or black!! I love both styles of these pieces and I am starting to fall in love with trousers like these that I would like to invest in more of these trousers and add more to my wardrobe!
Apologies for bringing another trousers here, but I really love matching these trousers because you can match them with so much. Whilst in the past I did not think this was possible as I was always scared of buying a pair!! This trousers I paired it with the corset like off the shoulder top!! Very summer like and this is more of a night out outfit!
I now will show you some two piece sets from Zaful. I love two piece outfits because you can wear the pieces together or even with other pieces. Like the top alone you can match it with a denim skirt whilst the skirt you can match it with a black crop top! But I love these two pieces together, they are so pink and girly together!
I love my stripes during Spring and Summer. And again these you can totally wear them with different pieces. Like the top you can match it with a high waisted ripped jeans and the trousers you can match it with another coloured off the shoulder top – like the mustard one I showed you guys above!! But I love these two together as well, and you can match these with a denim jacket or oversized black blazer if you would like to make the outfit look a little smart too!
This is such a cute date night outfit for the hot summer months! I love this, matching it with a pair of sunnies and sandals! It would look great for a BBQ night too! Those round sunglasses in the photo also looks great with this outfit!
Another striped two-piece but this time with a pair of shorts. I think this would be a great outfit if you are going to have cocktails for lunch or you’re going shopping. So you will feel comfortable and it will be easy when trying on clothes at the shops! And you also will look stylish and cute! This also comes in two other shades – green striped with white and blue striped with white!
This is quite similar to the grey two-piece I showed above. However, the colour is totally different, it’s this gorgeous sky blue which would look great on your sun kissed tan! I would also pair it similarly to how it is paired on the photo! A pair of brown sandals with a bag in a similar shade of brown! And gladiator sandals or heels would look cute with this outfit too!
This is a cute off the shoulder mini dress and with a floral pattern! If you don’t know me I love my florals during the spring time! Be it on my top or trousers but I would love the floral print on a dress too! You can either wear this dress with strappy black heels or even a pair of sandals! This outfit would look great for Spring/Summer!
This is a cute floral jumpsuit which would look cute on date night going out to eat at a fancy restaurant. I love the design it comes with and the pink flowers. However, my only concern is how it would stay on my chest. But I guess it looks very pretty and I would love to add this to my wardrobe! It also comes in a pink colour rather than black, with blue flowers!
The final outfit is a romper and it looks as though the material is suede like! I love the flowers on the chest and it just looks like a gorgeous night out outfit for during the spring/summer time! You can either take it on a night out of cocktails followed by a lot of dancing at the club or even a date night at a restaurant looking gorgeous!
And those were the outfits I found from the NEW section from the Zaful website! I think they have an amazing variety of clothing pieces which you could easily mix and match. Their prices are great especially for the two piece sets which you have to remember you are getting two pieces which you can mix and match for that one single price! They also have lovely accessory pieces which I recommend you checking them out! Also, the website always have discount codes going on so you could save even more on your purchases!!
What did you think of the outfits I picked? Do you like any? Ever ordered off Zaful? Let me know in the comments down below!!
Anyways, so I wanted to come on my blog and create a post where I share with all, you my thoughts on Sleek products which are all cruelty-free. I have been using them for the past week since I received them! Before we start, a reminder that you can buy Sleek products either from Boots or Sleek’s website.
This foundation comes in several shades and the shade that matched my skin the most was LP02 which is a fair shade with cool pink undertones. You can find your shade of sleek foundations right here. This foundation stated that it was sweat-proof, oil-free and has a medium to full buildable coverage intensity.
My thoughts …
I personally loved this foundation as it gave me greatcoverage. I did have to use concealer for underneath my eyes and my imperfections but apart from that, it really set a nice makeup base to my look.
It has soft-focus powders which create a blurring effect and helps in reducing the appearance of fine lines. From applying this foundation, I immediately saw my pores decrease in appearance … so that’s a major plus for me! Also, because it is oil-free, it helped my skin remain shine-free. I also noticed that it lasted all day.
This foundation again comes in different shades and my shade was VF02 which is a fair shade with neutral undertones. This is a lightweight foundationwith a semi-matte finish. It has hydrating ingredients including lotus flower, bamboo and water lily extracts that help in leaving your skin flawless. Like the other foundation it has soft-focus powders that help in smoothing your skin.
My thoughts …
The Life Proof foundation I felt that you would use it on a night out but the Vitality Fresh foundation could be your everyday foundation. It is very lightweight and has quite light coverage but it is buildable. It is oil-free which I love as my skin requires oil-free foundations.
What I loved the most is that even after a whole day of errands my skin still looked the same from the morning, the foundation didn’t move around or get patchy, so it is very long lasting! I love this foundation too but for more natural makeup days.
Sleek has 10 different shades of blush in this formula, they are all highly pigmented, long lasting and give a dewy radiant glow. The shade I received is Rose Gold and OMG the pigmentation of it is UNREAL!
My thoughts …
When applied, it blended so nicely on my skin and gave me a gorgeous pink natural blushed look. I love the shade, it’s such a gorgeous rosy pink with gold shimmers! It’s ideal for all skin tonesand also can be used as a golden pink highlight. Oh, and I love the packaging of this cute blush, as it also comes with a mirror!
Sleek has 3 different shades of this contour kit and mine came in the Light one. You get a contour and highlight shade in this one palette. I love Sleek’s packaging and love how they put mirrors in these palettes.
My thoughts …
I love both the contour and the highlight. I first applied the contour shade to the hollows of my cheeks and the powder blended in nicely giving me a natural contoured look. However, I love the highlight shade that comes in this palette, it gives my cheek bonessuch a lovely glow!
I already have this palette in my collection and I think it was one of the first ever highlighting palettes I bought! I simply love it, this is what made me get into highlight! It helps enhance your complexionand helps add a radiant skin glow!
My thoughts …
The packaging of this palette, I mean yes it gets filled with my fingerprints but I simply love it! It is just so sleek! Even though it comes with a brush I don’t like using that one but I love using a simple fan brush. But, if you want the shades to be more intense I noticed that using the Real Techniques Setting Brush gives the shades more intensity!
My favourite shades are the golden yellow one and the one next to it which is sort of gold/peach-ish. I wish this palette came with names for the shades, because they deserve names as they are so amazing! You can also use them as shimmers on your body … perfect for the Summer months!
This is an ‘oxblood red’ or a vampy red that is perfect for the winter months.
My thoughts …
This shade required two coats and not one to get the intensity of the colour right. That is why I prefer the lighter shades from this formula. But it is a stunning vampy red that is perfect with a simple winged liner makeup look, such as the one I created, attached in these photos! You just have to be a little patient with this shade!
You could apply this strobe cream either before applying any foundation to give your skin a lovely natural glow or else you could just apply it as your cream highlight on your cheekbones. I have tried it both ways and found that applying it before anything else, really does help with giving a nicer glow to your skin and to your overall makeup look! It can be a little sticky but after setting your face with some powder, I think you will be all good!
The shade that I was sent was a banana shade and this meant that it kind of was too dark for me. I mean you could use it to help cover redness or set your concealer but I prefer to use light skin shades rather than yellow tones. But when I applied it underneath my eyes, even though I did not like the colour I still felt that it set my concealer right without any creases.
The Get Gorgeous Highlight range is so cute and pigmented from Technic. Pink Sparkle is literally a glittery pink highlight. I don’t like glitter sparkles in my highlight and I preferred the one that I will be mentioning next!
I prefer this shade from the Get Gorgeous Highlighter range for sure! I think this highlight during summer with your summer sun tan will look great. It doesn’t have any glitter specs running around but it just glides onto your cheekbone and gives you a pop of colour and a glow! You could also apply it to your collar bones! It works perfectly and isn’t patchy at all!
The scent of this spray isn’t that nice BUT I love the way it sets all my makeup. It just helps me makeup last all day and if you feel your skin tacky or sticky, this will help reduce that feeling. How it sprays is good too and so is the packaging but the scent I am not too keen on. I prefer this to the primer spray that I tried from Technic.
This palette has such lovely tones of browns and reds and matte shades as well as shimmer shades. You can create a number of looks from evening makeup looks to morning ones too! It is a perfect starter palette and it also comes with a double ended brush. One side is a blending brush which I loved using and the other side is a flat shaded brush which I am not too sure about! But this palette blends well, is not too powdery and lasts long!
I love this blush palette, honestly I do and out of all the products I will mention today, this has to be my FAVOURITE product out of them all!! You can mix different blush shades to create your choice of blush for the day. You have natural blush shades whilst you also have more intense ones. I found them to work well and apply well on my skin and they blended nicely too!
The wand of this mascara is great for gripping all your lashes and giving them volume. It doesn’t lengthen my lashes all too much but it does give them volume. It doesn’t transfer and it is waterproof! I love the packaging of it too!
I prefer this shade to the one I will be mentioning after this one! It is a little patchy if you are going to apply it on its own but I like applying it on top of a matte lipstick, I find the colour is much better than applying it on its own! It has a sweet smell and even though it is a gloss it isn’t that sticky!
Like I wrote, I prefer the shade Aphrodite, but this one I guess is a perfect colour for summer or for those festivals like Coachella! I think they will spring a pop to your makeup look!
And those were the products I had to review for today. If you want you could check out my video down below where I show you how these products applied and also some other products from the brand which I bought myself!
Have you ever tried Technic Cosmetics? What do you think of the brand? Comment down below!!
I thought today’s Blogmas should be a little different. Ever since I moved from Malta to Stirling I have been probably experiencing something new everyday and I wanted to dedicate a blog post to Stirling.
I have been here for a little over 3 months already and boy does time fly! I remember my first week feeling like a lost sheep in such a new country full of green grass and beautiful trees and surrounded by a lake.
Back in September I felt cold and now it is just too too cold where I even don’t feel my nose or lips whilst walking outside in the cold crisp air! Stirling is quite a quiet town and it’s not as big as I thought it would be although I was warned but I love it here!
There’s the cute little town with the Thistles shopping centre with shops like Superdrug, Primark, H&M, Lush, Boots which you will see me go in every time I go there. It is just a bus away from the student accommodation I am living at. I also chose the perfect student housing it is SO CLOSE to the lecture halls … I LOVE IT. It is like a classy hotel with the reception and a lift and a cleaning service. The University of Stirling campus is BEAUTIFUL and MIND BLOWING and so so big … like ten times the size of that one University we have in Malta. Also, the lecturers here are just wonderful in my course, they are helpful and so kind and answer to emails so quickly and we also get our marks in a timely manner unlike Malta’s university which takes a lifetime!
But thank goodness I did not choose an accommodation which was farther away from the university because I like my 10 minute walk to and from lectures especially on a cold day! We also have our own book shop, pharmacy and loads of food shops with our local grocer which is a tiny bit priced but when you’re in a rush for something, it is a great place to go to rather than catching the bus to go and do a shop at Tesco.
And it doesn’t matter that Stirling is a small town as you can simply catch a train and go anywhere that you would like. So far I have only been to Glasgow and Edinburgh but I want to explore more. Of course my studies stops me from doing this but since now I finished my exams and have a few more days until I go back down to Malta for Christmas, I hope to use these last few days left to explore and visit the Christmas Markets in Edinburgh and Glasgow. Next semester I would like to visit St. Andrews, Aberdeen and Dundee and maybe go to an isle of Sky or some other one. Hopefully will get to do that then.
Oh and something else I still have yet to properly experience is SNOW. The one time it did snow was for 5 minutes and I was inside doing my placement. When I went into my placement everywhere was green when I came out everywhere was white. It was something that I had never seen or experienced and it just felt magical! However, I was so gutted I missed it all! Although, it didn’t snow a heavy amount so we couldn’t do snow angels or a snowman, so that was disappointing too.
Ever since then, I have been checking the weather everyday waiting for it to snow and I think if my weather indicator is right today it should snow. I will keep you updated on my social media!!
I have come to visit lots of food venues whilst I have been here like Nandos, Wetherspoons, The Alannwater Cafe – best fish and chip place ever, an Indian place that I forgot the name of, Boozy cow, Kilted Kangaroo which I love and some others! Hope to visit more in the next semester!
Anyways, so yeah I am loving Stirling, it is definitely different from Malta with respect to the air, weather and cleanliness. I love the little town here and have gotten used to life here. However, yes I miss home and my parents’ cooking and my boyfriend and friends and not to forget my cat. Oh that is another disadvantage with Stirling, that there aren’t any cats here!
But I am thankful to be having this experience! And thank you to my mum and dad as without them it wouldn’t be possible!! Thank you for allowing me to take this opportunity, I think I am growing more and learning more about myself. I have also met so many different people from different countries and have made some really good friends here … so yeah I am happy and excited to continue this experience and learn more from it and more about myself!
Thank you for everyone who has read this! And thank you for all the support!!
I hope you are all doing well!! Day 6 is here! I hope you have been enjoying my blogmas posts!
But I did say that I will be trying out something else which I never have done. And that is VLOGMAS!
I have missed vlogging so much and Vlogmas was my excuse that I should start vlogging again. Before moving to Stirling I had every intention to vlog but as I got here and time really flew past quick, lots of things happened which influenced my choice in not vlogging until now.
I really enjoy vlogging and I just love having memories of where I go and what I do and who I meet. So now that I am in Stirling, living abroad and having a new experience every day … like cooking and cleaning and doing laundry and travelling to new places and of course learning a lot because the reason as to why I moved was to do my Masters – I would love to have a memory of all of it.
Last September like I wrote I had every intention to vlog, and well things happened and this had nothing to do with Stirling, and it just lowered my motivation on everything. Thankfully I still filmed my main channel videos that I love doing. But vlogging is more personal and I just didn’t feel myself to vlog.
I hope to one time open up about my story and will one day do it most probably. It basically evolves around my future in psychology. It is such a vast area yet so tough to get a career in. And I am already 24 years old so yeah seeing time pass and seeing that I still have a long way to go it just puts you down sometimes! Having doors constantly shut closed can really do a number on you!
But anyways !!!! My motivation came back to vlog and so here I am bringing you a Vlogmas this year! Mine won’t be uploaded per day but per week. So in this vlogmas week 1 you will get day 1, 2 and 3 of vlogmas. The next vlogmas, which will be uploaded next Monday the 11th, will include a whole week of vlogs – 7 days!! So in total I will have 4 Vlogmas videos on my channel and the last one will be uploaded on the 26th of December and by then I would be in Malta because yes I am going home for Christmas!
So in this Week 1 you simply will see me heading out to attend my placement that I have to do along with my course, study at the library and bake coconut balls. Yes my vlogmas won’t be that Christmassy until next Monday as I have an exam then but hopefully after I will get to do more exciting things!!
So I hope you like my Blogmas and Vlogmas this year!!
I really enjoy creating content and this really helps me and motivates me and sets my day in a more positive state!!!
I hope you all have a lovely Day 6 into December and thank you so much for reading and/or watching my videos!!
I would love to know what you are doing today !! Comment down below!!
This palette has been talked about a lot and in my opinion has the loveliest of shades. (I just got mine and cannot wait to play around with it!) But I think this would make for a perfect Christmas gift as it has vibrant shades, the quality is just amazing and you just get so much in the palette! You can create so many looks!! I think this would be an amazing Christmas gift!
If you want something slightly cheaper than the gift above, any eyeshadow palette from Makeuprevolution would honestly be great! But one that I know you cannot go wrong with is this one right here. I just made a makeup tutorial using this palette and I think it is just so pigmented, the shadows blend well, you get a great variety of colours and it is only $10! What more can a girl want!! And it comes in the cutest packaging and if your friend/girlfriend/daughter/whoever loves watching Youtubers then she would definitely love this as this was a Collab with SophDoesNails!
There are 8 different shades of these lipsticks and they all look stunning. I personally haven’t tried these but I think giving any JeffreeStar Liquid Lipstick would be amazing. In this collection you can choose from either a matte or metallic finish. I think they are a great Christmas Gift Idea!
Yes this is a little pricey, but wait I will give you a cheaper alternative don’t worry! But this mask I think is perfect for those girls who love face masks, love having their weekly chill session and relaxation time! It is a great face mask that brightens and clears your skin! It dries so quickly and feels amazing after rinsing it off!
I told you I would give you an alternative face mask which is much cheaper. You can buy different types of these Garnier face masks and they are amazing too. You can reuse these and they are so hydrating and refreshing on your skin!! You can make a cute little gift set with these!! These could also be stocking fillers!
In this set, you get a body lotion and a body set. You can buy them separately but honestly I think buying the set is much more worth both for the quantity you get and for the value of money. I love Zoella’s products and the Snowella body mist just smells so sweet and cute! I think that this gift is perfect for those girls who love spraying anything during anytime of the day!!
This set is perfect for those girls who enjoy taking baths! The gift set includes a bath tea bag and a bath milk powder! They come so cutely packaged and the girls who love baths would thank you for them !! Maybe they never used a bath tea bag but from then on they would do so! And again it is from Zoella so if the girl you are buying the gift for loves Youtubers then I am sure she would love this! Anything from Zoella is actually a cute Christmas Gift Idea!
This is the cutest mirror that someone could add to their vanity. So many people have talked about and bought it. And so many people loved it. I think it is a cute gift idea and is an inexpensive one too!
This gift is for those who are Kylie Cosmetics fan. Both these palettes are currently in stock and their shades look equally cute. Which palette you choose for a gift depends on the person who you are buying it hehe! I think that any girl would love this … but that’s my opinion so I might be wrong!! (Just be careful as they might not arrive before Christmas, I ordered mine on November 27th and they haven’t even been shipped yet 😦 )
This is for those girls who loves note taking or journaling or writing to do lists! And yes it is another Zoella product but like I said, Zoella has some amazing gift ideas from her collection! I think that this journal had to make it into my list of Christmas ideas for her as it is just too cute!
What did you think of My Christmas Gift Ideas? Where there ones you liked or disliked? Please let me know in the comments down below!
Thank you so much for reading and for supporting my blog!!
And that’s all from me today!! Join me and my blog again today for the next Blogmas!!
So yeah I have already done a few! I love 3INA because it allows me to come out of my comfort zone and create looks that I would have never imagined of creating! It gives me the confidence and provides me with colours that I thought wouldn’t look good on me!!
If you are Maltese like me you can find 3INA outlets at the Point – Sliema, in Qormi near Kiabi, Pama Shopping Village and Valletta.
This is a long lasting eyeshadow that gives an intense and magnetic colour, it also lasts all day and is waterproof. It comes in four different shades – white, yellow, green and blue.
My thoughts – It is not a product that I would go for and the only way I could think of applying this product is by applying a green shade all over my crease and placing the shadow paint on my lids, It was a littledifficult to work with and you will need patience with this product. However, after fixing it and blending back and forth I managed to make it work … or I think I did.
When it came to removing the product I found that it was a little hardto remove. This is not a favourite product of mine but it could reflect on my makeupskills and not being a professional makeup artist. Comment down below of what other ways I can use this shadow paint, I would love to know!!
This eyeliner pencil comes in a vivid colour, it is superintense and pigmented and helps with creating a preciseline and is easy to blend. You can get this product in two shade – green like mine or a mustard yellow.
My thoughts – I loved applying this on my waterline, it applied so easily and I love the shade I got mine in – makes your eyes pop especially with that shadow paint all over the lid! I also noticed how creamy the formula! Really loved how this product applied!
Great for travelling and applies so quickly and easily. The roundedtip helps with applying over the cupid’sbow and lipcorners. It comes in four different shades, a muddy brownlike mine, mustard, light pink and dark pink.
My thoughts – I loved how this chubby lipstick applied, I didn’t take long to apply the lipstick at all! It is very pigmented,soft and moisturising on the lips and not at all dry even though it is a matteformula.Love the shade it came in – perfect for autumn/winter!!
You can also watch my video where I even showed you how they apply –
Have you guys tried out any of the products from the Utility Collection from 3INA? Comment down below and let me know!!
Thank you once again to 3INA Malta and Hudson Group Malta for the the products!!
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!!
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.
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
As you know I am quite picky when it comes to eyeliner pens. However, the Wonder Wingfrom Rimmel has passed my test! It has a stamp applicatordeveloped by Rimmel and is made up of a smudge-proof formula.
Again this product was easy to apply, created a pitch black wing eyeliner and lasted all day!
#4 Wonderfully Real Mascara with Keratin
When I saw that this mascara contained Keratin I was intrigued! It also contains arganoil, so when applying this mascara you are also helping protect your lashes!
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 flakeproof and lasts all day.It has a wonderbrush 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!!
