My Favourite Winter Lipsticks

Hi everyone, 

How are you all doing? 

screen-shot-2017-02-15-at-20-52-44

I am so excited to be sharing with you this Youtube Video. As you know lip videos are my favourite ones to film. I have previously filmed my favourite seasonal lipsticks however, never did one for Winter until now!!

screen-shot-2017-02-15-at-20-52-51

So here are my favourite 10 lipsticks that are all reasonably priced as all of them are drugstore as I now have realised!!

MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer in Harmony

2

As you know I love the MUA Velvet Lip Lacquers. Even though they aren’t long last and need a constant re application especially when food or drink is involved, their range is great. They have so many shades in their collection including four new SPRING shades1!!

Colourpop Ultra Satin Lip in Point Zero

1

This was one of the collaborations that Kathleen Lights did with Colourpop and of course I had to get my hands on it! I love the formula of their satin lips and this lip shade screams winter!! Kathleen also released a new set of three lipsticks with Colourpop called Aquarius Bundle!

Essence XXXL Longlasting Velvet Matte Lipgloss in Silky Red

6

The formula isn’t the best but the scent of this lipstick is AMAZING! I have only managed to get my hands on one of these shades from this range. I love the formula as it is very soft and creamy!

Focallure Matte Lips in Shade 03 Burnt Amber

5

I purchased these off Ebay and I love the range. They are a little patchy and a little bit sticky but when I apply some sort of lip moisturiser before hand it definitely helps!

3ina Lipstick Shade 102

8

3INA is a brand that we recently got in Malta, there are 3 branches and I love the shop and the way it is designed! I love their products, and they are well priced too! The only thing that I don’t like about this lipstick is the bullet is so annoying to apply with!

BH Cosmetics Bh Liquid Lipstick in Clara

3

I absolutely love the formula of these lipsticks! They dry to a matte perfect finish and they have the fastest drying formula that I have ever tried! They are also long lasting as well!

NYX Soft Matte Lip Creme in Copenhagen

9

I love the Soft Matte Lip Range from NYX  I think they have such a lovely range of shades! The scent that these lipsticks have is AMAZING!! I like this shade however you have to be so careful around it as it tends to get patchy!

HUDA Beauty Liquid Matte Lipstick in Vixen – Ebay Replica

10

So I cannot lie and tell you that this is the original products but no it is a knock off from Ebay. And I was hesitant in trying these out but I did and actually like how the colour pay off truly is! They do have a scent to them not a chemically one as you would expect off ebay! They are a little patchy and need constant re application but apart from those factors I love this lipstick!

Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme in Magnetic

7

The Milani Amore Matte Lip Creme’s are by far my favourite liquid lipsticks! They have the sweetest scents from all these lipsticks I have mentioned! They are not that long lasting but are so soft and creamy! They apply so well and smoothly across the lips !! The applicator is helpful in creating a precise shape onto your lips!

Jeffree Star Velour Liquid Lipstick in Dominatrix – Ebay Replica

4

Again, this is a knock off and yes I did not want to spend all that money on the real thing, and was I happy with my decision? YES!! I love it. It is a little bit drying but again applying some moisturiser or lip balm before applying this lipstick definitely helps!! I love the shade it’s sort of a dusty mauavey brown and pink mixed together!!

I hope  you enjoyed this post!

What was your favourite lipstick and lip shade?

Thank you so much for reading!! 

Happy Wednesday!!

♡ Golden Rose Liquid Lipsticks Lip Swatches – Ladymakeup.eu – 10% Discount Code

Hi everyone,

It’s WEDNESDAY!! Which means I have a NEW VIDEO for you all!! And I am so excited to be sharing this video with you all as it was one of my favourites to film.

As you know I LOVE lip products and so here is a LIP SWATCH VIDEO showing you all 12 SHADES from the brand called GOLDEN ROSE!

I would like to personally thank Ladymakeup.eu for giving me the opportunity to review these products for all my followers!!

I also would like to add that ladymakeup.eu is an online makeup shop which holds a lot of different drugstore brands from ELF, Makeup Revolution, MUA, Real Techniques, Sleek, NYX and many more!

They even ship to MALTA which is great, however they do charge a shipping fee!

They even gave me a discount code for all my followers to use!

Use – Kezia10 – at checkout and get 10% off your order!!

So anyways going back to the lipsticks I have never tried anything from Golden Rose so I was excited to try out these new lip products. They are called the Longlasting Liquid Lipsticks which are Matte and Kissproof!!

A basic summary – I tried 12 shades however on the ladymakeup.eu website there are 5 NEW SHADES!

There are a lot of pinks mostly and I simply love them! They have a scent and their formula is very creamy. They remind me a lot of the Milani Amore Matte Lip Cremes.

They are very soft to the lips and not drying! They are quite long lasting however, if you are anticipating a snack or food I would recommend you keeping it in your bag to reapply!

In the video you will see me testing out whether or not they are kiss proof by kissing the back of my hand. And let me tell you they are however they have to completely dry down to a matte finish or else there would be SOME transfer!

They also don’t take that long to dry!

The sad thing is that they are not named and only have a shade number given to each one!

Here are a closer look to the 12 shades! 

And here is the video – 

Have you ever visited the ladymakeup.eu website?

Have you ever tried these lipsticks? Do you like Golden Rose?

Which was your favourite shade? 

Thank you so much for watching my video and reading my blog post!

Happy mid week!! 

Love Kezia

Arad Dead Sea Malta – Fluffy Liquid Soap Mousse Review

Hi everyone,

This is my fourth post reviewing an Arad product!

I truly am impressed by what these products are doing to my skin. I love the feel of them on my face and now even all over my body!

If you would like to see the other three posts (with the first one giving you a summary of what the Arad brand is all about) then have a look on these posts –

Arad Dead Sea Malta – The Facial Cleansing Milk Review

Arad Dead Sea Malta – Facial Mud Mask – Review

Arad – Hydro Light Moisturizer for Oily Skin – Review

Also, for those of you who are Maltese you can head on over to Arad Dead Sea Malta‘s Facebook Page.

images-6

Today’s review is on a body product called The Fluffy Liquid Soap Mousse. It is one of the new products from Arad. I was so hesitant on using this as my body is so sensitive and when I change products it would just set an alarm all over my body; and I could end up with red patches on my skin!

But due to the ingredients being so natural such as Aloe Vera and Vitamin extracts, those red patches I feared never showed up! I was so glad and so I tried it a couple of more times and here I am now being able to write up this review for you guys!

It is described as a “special soaping experience!” It comes out as a “cloud of fluffy soap” that should melt on your skin whilst cleaning and nurturing it. It is enriched with Dead Sea minerals such as Aloe Vera extract and Vitamin E.

It also states that it may be applied to all skin types.

 How did I apply it?

images-7

Well, on the bottle it states that you have to shake it and then turn it upside down and simply push the handle. Honestly, it truly did come out like a cloud of fluffy soap!! You could compare it to when you push out whipped cream out of the can! Then you simply rub it all over your body and rinse.

The soap itself is so soft and when you glide it onto your skin it just feels so gentle on your body.

Now it does have a weird smell of men’s after shave when you put it on BUT this smell gradually lessens as you rinse it off your body. Therefore, if you do not like men’s after shave then do not use it as you might not like it!

For me personally it did not bother me!

images-5

My thoughts – 

I can say that I have replaced my everyday body wash with this product as I am so happy with it! Not only does my body not flare up into red patches of mayhem but my skin feels so smooth and soft!

I definitely recommend this product, and it is a perfect product to use when you are having that spa day in the comfort of your own home; while taking a bubble bath to get rid of all the stress of the week!

Have you tried any of the Arad products? What do you think of this product?

Thank you so much for reading!

Love Kezia

Sweet Sparkle – Naughty or Nice Unboxing

Hi everyone, 

So yes today is Thursday and I am a little tardy – by a day – of posting a blog post related to the video that I uploaded on Youtube yesterday!

But …. it still is here just 24 hours later.

Today’s video is the Sweet Sparkle Unboxing of the December box! I know I am so late having already received the January box. Although I am thinking that for the January box I will only do a blog post related to it!

14562030_214578932283687_4616189506385608704_n.jpg

The December box is a definite hit for me unlike the November one.

I simply love what we received and am so happy with what we got!

screen-shot-2017-01-19-at-21-12-40

The products mentioned – 

L.A Colors Day to Night Eyeshadow Palette

Now the colour choice is a good one as you can create a number of looks with them. However, they are not at all easy going when it comes to blending them out!

J.cat Beauty Lovestruck Blusher & Bronzer in Babe

I absolutely love this blush and bronzer combo! I have reached for this product a number of times ever since I filmed this video. You have to be so careful to not apply a lot and try and blend it as fast as possible as it does tend to stick to one place if you apply it wrongly/too much!

Kasina Professional Fake Eyelashes – 100 % Human Hair with Tapered Ends

OMG!! You guys know my struggle when it comes to false lashes! But these didn’t give me that sense of impatience and anger rather the opposite! I used my lash glue from Ardell and simply applied them correctly in one try! SUCCESS!

LA Girl Flat Velvet Matte Lipstick in Runway

This shade is just gorgeous!! I love this so much !! Even though I do not like the shape of the bullet lipstick as it makes it difficult to apply I still love it nonetheless! You do have to be careful with darker colours as they can be sheer and patchy but this didn’t give me much trouble either! Love how it settled onto my lips!

Bella Piere Cosmetics Clear Eye liner Base

I don’t really know the exact job of this eyeliner but its supposed to make the job of applying eyeliner easier. Now I don’t know if it was because the black eyeliner was good but it was a piece of cake to do some winged eye liner!

Bella Piere Cosmetics Noir Eye Liner

As I said above, the eyeliner went on perfectly and I really love how black this product is! It isn’t sheer just jet black so to say!! I love it!

screen-shot-2017-01-19-at-21-12-24
The look I created using these products!

So as you can see the products this month were a cuppa tea when compared to the November ones!!

I can already tell you that the January products are a hit however I did not try them! But I really think I will like them!!

Let me know in the comments down below whether I should do a blog post about the January box or a video !! 

Have you tried the Sweet Sparkle subscription? Have you tried any of the products? 

Thank you so much for reading!!

Arad – Hydro Light Moisturizer for Oily Skin – Review

Hi everyone,

I am writing another post on a skin care product that I have been trying out from the brand Arad.

For those of you who are Maltese you could check out the Arad Dead Sea Malta Facebook Page.

You could check out my previous 2 blog posts on a summary of the brand Arad and a review of 2 products right here –

Arad Dead Sea Malta – Facial Mud Mask – Review

Arad Dead Sea Malta – The Facial Cleansing Milk Review

Today’s product that I shall be reviewing is a Moisturizer. Specifically it is called the Hydro Light Moisturizer for Oily Skin.

download

Now I have combination skin however, it is mostly oily. I do get a little dry around my nose – that is mostly it. I also have acne prone skin.

download-1

The moisturiser is an extra light textured cream and is specially formulated to regulate the moisture of oily and problematic skin.

download-2

Arad’s Dead Sea Minerals in this product enhanced with other natural ingredients and calming extracts should help to reduce irritation and keeps the correct moisture level.

My thoughts – 

images-13

I use this product daily in the morning. I cleanse my face as I do every day and night however, in the morning I would apply this right after. I apply the cream – as it is formulated like a cream – all over my face and neck.

It feels soft and gentle on my skin and as with all products that I have tried so far from Arad, it refreshes my skin.

There is one thing I do not like about this product and that is the smell. It has a weird scent that is not quite my favourite.

I do like the feel of my soft skin right after I apply this.

Even though this is for oily skin, where my skin usually gets dry i.e. my nose – it really hasn’t gotten dry, but still feels moisturised.

Therefore, I like the overall formula of this moisturiser apart from the weird scent.

Have you ever tried out this product? Did you ever try out a product from Arad? 

Thank you so much for reading !! 

Love Kezia

MUA New Velvet Lip Lacquer Shades – Review & Swatches!!

Hi everyone, 

I am so excited to share with you all today’s video! As you know I am a big fan of MUA – Makeup Academy.

They sell such good quality products, a variety of products and they are all so inexpensive!

Today’s video is all about 5 new shades from their Velvet Lip Lacquer range that they had released last Autumn.

The Velvet Lip Lacquer range include a variety of products. I also recently purchased two more which aren’t in this video. But maybe I could do a haul of what other new products I purchased from them recently!

11.jpg

The formula of these lipsticks dries to a complete matte look and doesn’t have a strong scent. They however, do not last that long although this varies with colours. Another distinction is that some colours  – mostly darker ones – are extremely patchy so you have to be careful on how you apply them.

Also, it was my first time trying a blue lipstick and I have mixed feelings about it! It also took the longest to dry as the others dried quickly.

The shades are – 

Posie – A cute light nude brown shade

img_5908

Hustle – A dark pink/red shade

23.jpeg

Firecracker – A fun pinky red

2342

Splash – A not too dark or not too light blue – just in between – shade

fsg

Flair – A vampy red

Have you ever tried this range? What’s your favourite shade?

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!!
