Testing out Iris Beauty NYC – Makeup – Review

Hi everyone,

I hope you are all having an amazing day! Today’s blog post is a review on Iris Beauty. This brand is well known for their contact lenses. However, the products I am reviewing for you all today are all eye makeup products.

4

I would like to thank Iris Beauty for this opportunity to review their products. They also gave my lovely followers a 15% Discount Code! Simply enter kezia45 at checkout to get 15% off your next order.

The products I tested out are –

Flirtatious Look Magnetic Eyelashes

3

I never tried magnetic lashes before until I tried out these. This concept is amazing, false lashes without the need to apply glue – such an amazing invention!! They are less messy to apply and connect together thanks to the magnets which are on the sides of the lashes. To see me apply the lashes watch my video on my Youtube Channel, I linked it down below!

I still need to keep practising on how to apply the magnetic lashes as I do not yet apply them well or quick. But I think there is room for improvement and with practice I will hope to get better.

The set I got were called the Flirtatious ones and they are just gorgeous and give a natural looking effect. I recommend these and if I ever get good at applying these I might be very happy to not have to apply glue with false lashes!

Perfecting Eyebrow Brush 

2

I love this eyebrow product and have been using it in my everyday makeup routine! This product is smudge proof, fade proof, waterproof and is long wearing. The tip of the pen makes it easier to fill in your brows and create any bold or wide or thin shapes that you desire.

What is interesting is that it has coconut oil which helps the formula! The shade I got is chocolate mousse but there are other shades that you can choose from!

Ultra Defining Eyeliner 

1

This eyeliner is amazing. It is super pigmented, waterproof and dries down so fast! It is creamy, smooth, glides so easily and has a precision tip that helps with the application. This helps in creating a perfect cat eye!

It is available in three shades – a blue/brown/black. The one I got is the black one called Jet Black! A great pen eyeliner!

So these were my thoughts on these products. Here is the video I did showing you guys how exactly they test out! Hope you enjoy watching!

Hi everyone!

I know I haven’t written a blog post in a while but I was back home for Christmas and then once I came back to Stirling I needed time to adjust and I have some visitors with me so am trying to show them a good time in Scotland!

Screen Shot 2018-01-18 at 21.17.15

Nonetheless, here I am today with a blog post on Golden Rose Cosmetics. I would like to thank Beauty Cosmos Malta for the products and for giving me yet another opportunity to try out the products!

If you are Maltese like me you can purchase Golden Rose Cosmetics from Beauty Cosmos which is found in Fgura. You can visit their facebook page for more information.

Screen Shot 2018-01-18 at 20.35.23

The products I am reviewing for you guys today are found in the Metals Collection. I uploaded a video on Wednesday testing out all the products. You can watch it right here –

The products that I tried out are the following – 

Golden Rose Lip & Blush Velvet Touch – Shade 02

Using the Lip & Blush Velvet Touch as a blush and a lipstick!

This is a lovely lipstick and blush all in one. I loved applying it as a blush as it gives the cheek a natural pinky look. And it also blended nicely on the skin with my fingertips. I also liked applying it as a lipstick, it is very lightweight on the lips! It retails for €8.50.

Golden Rose Metals Matte Metallic Lip Crayon – Shade 02 and Shade 05

I loved these metallic lip crayons especially the one in shade 05! They are so easy to apply and so moisturising on the lips! I loved applying them on their own however, I also loved the look of them applied on a liquid lipstick. They retail at €6.50 each

Golden Rose Smart Lips Moisturising Lipstick – Shade 04 and Shade 12

These are again so fast and easy to apply. They are so soft and moisturising on the lips and have great colour pay off! If you are looking for that non drying lip product, I highly recommend this line of lipsticks! They retail at €7 each.

Golden Rose Metals Liquid Glow Highlighter – Shade 04 Sunlight 

IMG_3089

IMG_3090

IMG_3033
Using the highlight!

This is such a lightweight highlight. It blends nicely on the skin and creates a subtle glow. If you want a more intense highlight this may not be the one for you however it is quite buildable. But if you are like me I enjoy a more natural glow! This retails at €7.50.

Golden Rose Metals Metallic Liquid Eyeshadow – Shade 105 Mink 

IMG_3092

IMG_3093

Using the metallic liquid eyeshadow at the base. 

I liked using this all over my eye lid, it just makes your eye look pop even more. I found that blending it with my fingertips worked well. i just loved the effect it gave to my look.

Blogmas Day 18 🎅🏻☃️🎄 – Christmas Makeup Looks over 3 years!!

Hi everyone!! 

I apologise, however I had to miss a couple days of blogmas!! I hope that the final week of Blogmas I will be all caught up … fingers crossed.

I am back in Malta and just had my final week in Stirling that passed super quickly. I enjoyed going to Glasgow and Edinburgh, I might do a little blog post about that !!

But now I am back home, back in me room on my bed, I just love it!!

Today’s blog post is all about the three makeup looks for Christmas that I have done on my Youtube Channel for the past three years!!

I cannot believe that I have kept on uploading weekly on my channel  – so happy wit h that – and I have over 2k subscribers! I am truly grateful to everyone who has subscribed to my channel!

Anyways I just wanted to put together a blog post with all the three christmas makeup look videos. I never really took any makeup classes and only learnt everything from youtubers like Kathleen Lights, Zoella, Carli Bybel, Shaaanxo and recently Imogenation. So yeah, thanks to youtubers I have gotten some makeup skills over the years and I also love trying out new looks and I especially did so in this year’s Christmas Makeup look (I think).

Anyways here are the makeup looks in the three years – including this year’s – I would love to know which one was your favourite?

2015: 

2016:

2017:

 

One thing did remain constant …. the red lip!! I don’t know how many red lipsticks I bought over this month in a red shade … I am obsessed!

Thank you so much for reading!

Love Kezia

Testing Out NEW Golden Rose Makeup Products

Hi everyone, 

How’s it going? Here is my first ever video taken in my new little room back in Scotland. How am I adjusting you might say? Well, not bad actually. I am loving the greenery, the fresh air and well maybe not the weather but all in all, I am doing ok!

Today’s blog post is all about some new GOLDEN ROSE products that were gifted to me from Beauty Cosmos Malta which is a cute shop filled with a variety of Golden Rose makeup products in Fgura. Definitely give it a visit if you would like to try out some of these products.

The products mentioned were – 

Screen Shot 2017-10-05 at 17.11.20

CC Cream Color Correcting Primer in Violet and Yellow – €14.75

IMG_1901

The yellow primer is for correcting and neutralising purple/blue tones and correcting any redness on your skin. It prepares your base for a flawless makeup application.  I personally love this over the Violet one as my skin has quite a bit of redness going to it!

The violet primer neutralises dull yellow undertones and it’s good for medium skin tones and again prepares the base for a flawless makeup application.

Both primers help in smoothing, evening and brightening skin tones and hiding dullness and dark spots. I think they do a perfect job in hiding any imperfections you have got going on also.

They contain a Pure Moisturiser Complex and Vitamin E. They also have SPF 30 which is perfect for your skin and no parabens are added. They can be used alone or under foundation. 

Contour Kabuki Brush €11.00

IMG_1902

The brush is designed in the shape of a S shape and that means it is perfect to sculpt and contour with. It helped me quite a bit as I am no master of the contour technique.

It blended out the shades perfectly and the shape helps me figure out where is it that I need to place my contour!

Stylist Duo Liner 2 in 1 Eyeliner Pen €8.50

IMG_1906

This eyeliner pen has two tips that allow for the perfect liner look! Both sides are pigmented and are deep black. The pen is said to be smudge proof and made up of a longwear liquid formula.

IMG_1913

I have used this pen with both sides multiple times and I love it! It lasts all day and just glides on so smoothly. It has a semi-matte finish and it is enriched with Aloe Vera and Vitamins.

Both the tips allow for the perfect liner look.

IMG_1904

The thin tip in the Tulip Shape is made of a flexible felt-tip in the shape of a tulip and it allows for an easy application.

IMG_1905

The ball tip which has a round shape is a flexible felt tip in the shape of a ball and this shape allows for an easy classic eyeliner look, perfect for beginners.

I first use the Thin Tip and then go over it with the ball tip to finalise my look and to make sure that the line is straight.

Smokey Lashes Mascara – Defining Volume and Intensely Black €7.50

IMG_1909

This mascara is said to add volume and fullness to the lashes. However, I believe that it lengthens them mostly and separates them ever so evenly.

IMG_1910

It is smudge proof and has a quick dry formula with a unique soft fiber brush.

Soft Kiss Lip Marker Flocky Tip  – Kiss Proof and smudge proof with Vitamin E and Aloe Vera – Shade 01, 05 – €8.50

I love how most of these products have vitamins and Aloe Vera!! Now I must say that I am not a fan of lip markers in general. These ones provide us with a lip stain that when applied feels so refreshing on the lips and lasts so long. I love shade 05, it has a such a cute rich red shade!

What I also like about these is that you could use these lip markers before applying regular lipsticks or lipglosses to make them last longer!

Matte Lip Crayon Shade 23 and 25 – €6.25

I love these matte lip crayons. They are so easy and creamy to apply. Shade 23 is such a gorgeous red shade, perfect for the Christmas time!

I really recommend these if you are like me and love matte lipsticks!

Have you ever tried any of these products? Comment down below!!

I would like to thank Beauty Cosmos Malta once again for these products!!!

Thank you so much for reading!!

Shimmery Makeup Tutorial ft. Born Pretty Store

Hi everyone,

Today’s blog post is all about a Shimmery Makeup Look I created thanks to some products from Born Pretty Store.

Screen Shot 2017-08-31 at 09.03.21

Born Pretty Store is a website that sells a variety of products, from makeup to nail items and mobile accessories etc. I have made previous videos & blog posts about their website and you can check them out right here –

I also have a 10% DISCOUNT CODE that you could use at checkout and on non sale items – KEZZH10

I would like to thank Born Pretty Store for giving me yet another opportunity to collaborate with them!

The products I reviewed this time from their website were – 

2 Piece Face Brush Set 

IMG_0484

These retail for $2.59. I found that these brushes are a little small to apply any foundation or powder. I tried blending out my concealer which I liked how they blended it for me. And I also tried applying bronzer and highlight with them.

However, I didn’t get the finished effect I usually get with my other products. The highlight applied better than the bronzer but I think that these brushes look really cute on your vanity with their rhinestone packaging.

6 Piece Gradient Rainbow Unicorn Colorful Handle Eye Makeup Eyeshadow Brushes Set

IMG_0483

This retails for $3.99. I think these brushes are so cutely decorated with that perfect unicorn print. You get a brush for your brows, eyeliner, 2 flat brushes, a crease brush and a pointed brush perfect for the inner corner. 

I loved these brushes more than the other face brushes of before. I found that the brow brush and eyeliner one applied the products well. There is no proper blending brush in this set however the flat brushes are great to work with. Overall I think you can get good use out of them and they are so cute too!

1Pc Glow Shimmer Liquid Highlighter 

21267648_10212406859699216_1733171655_o

This retails for $2.59. I applied this not as a highlight but as my base colour on my eye look. So I applied it using the flat brush from the unicorn brush set.

I felt that this product was a little patchy when applied and took a little long to dry. However, I loved the finished effect and how it made my eye look pop even more!

1 Pair Handmade False Eyelash Black Long Thick Curly Artificial Eyelash

IMG_0486

These retail for $2.99. I found that these lashes were so easy to work with. The packaging they came in was really practical too.

I love how these applied and that they had a natural effect to them. They lasted long and when I applied mascara on them so to blend my real lashes with them, they stayed on really well. These are my favourite eye lashes that I have tried from born pretty store for sure!

Missy Young Fashion Matte Liquid Lipstick in Shade 5

21268100_10212406859219204_1966671031_o

This retails for $2.59. I loved the colour of this lipstick, it’s such a lovely deep pink shade. I love how it applied, it wasn’t patchy or flakey and it dried down to a complete matte finish.

I tried the kiss proof test, and the lipstick didn’t transfer. For only $2.59 I think these lipsticks are such a bargain!

The final look – 

21170859_10212385630088489_1501483592_o

21198155_10212385630368496_484776583_o

I hope you enjoyed this post! Thank you so much for reading!!

Until next time!

Glasses Makeup Tutorial ft. Firmoo – Buy one and get one for FREE

Hi everyone, 

How are you all doing? Here is a Glasses makeup look. Lots of you may be starting school soon or have already started. And some of you wear glasses on daily basis or like me have to wear your glasses for computers/long distances/driving.

IMG_0296

Here is a simple makeup look which will still make your eyes pop even though they are behind a pair of glasses. This is also in collaboration with Firmoo.

IMG_0441

Firmoo is a website that sells a variety of both vision glasses and sun glasses.
If you would like your own prescription glasses you can order them off this website. You can either enter the details of your prescribed lenses or photocopy your prescription and then let Firmoo do the rest. I feel that this website is a better option from ordering a pair of sight glasses locally. I find that you save money and the glasses are still of good quality!

 

 

IMG_0425
The glasses I ordered – you can get them right here –https://www.firmoo.com/eyeglasses-p-4848.html

They ship fast and you get a pocket for free! I think it really is worth it. The customer care service is amazing, therefore if you require any help simply email them and they will reply immediately!!

I also bought two pairs for me mum and I used the Buy one and get one free offer so I only paid for one then!
Basically you can get the Buy one pair and get one pair for FREE from http://bit.ly/bogofirmooglasses By clicking on this link, you can get your very own coupon code and with this code you can get two pairs from Firmoo for the price of one.
Therefore, you are entitled to one pair of glasses for FREE! This includes the frame and standard lenses.

IMG_0431

But these glasses that I am showing you in the video were kindly sent to me by Firmoo, so thank you so much Firmoo!!

Previous videos and blog posts about Firmoo Glasses  –

In this makeup look I also got to use some of my newer makeup from my collection!

IMG_0453
You can get this palette right here –https://www.muastore.co.uk/mua-pro-eyeshadow-fire-vixen – Retails for £5

IMG_0455
MUA 15 Shade Palette – Fire Vixen – one of my new products – I love this palette, I think the shade selection is perfect! The shadows are slightly powder-y but I don’t hate that about this palette. They blend ever so nicely and they are the same shade as what is represented in the palette. It is so cheap and affordable from MUA and you get a whole palette with 15 shades! Total bargain!! 
Shades used –

IMG_0461
Peach Diamond – You can buy this product right here – https://www.muastore.co.uk/undress-your-skin-highlighting-powder-peach-diamond – retails for £3

IMG_0463

MUA Undress Your Skin Highlighter – peach Diamond applied with Ebay Highlighter brush – a new product and I loved it. It isn’t a very pigmented highlight even though when you swatch it on your hands it appears to be. But when applied to my cheek bone it doesn’t transfer that much. But I love the slight sheen that it gives me, it is just enough for me. It is a little chalky but it doesn’t appear like that on the skin, so don’t be alarmed that when you swatch it on your hands it will be appear to be so but it isn’t!

Lipsticks mentioned –

IMG_0473
Shade 4 – you can buy this product right here – https://www.muastore.co.uk/new/mualuxe-velvet-matte-lipstick – retails for £3
IMG_0474
Shade 4 – second shade
IMG_0477
Shade 12 – you can buy this product right here – https://www.muastore.co.uk/new/mualuxe-velvet-matte-lipstick – retails for £3
IMG_0478
Shade 12 – bottom pink

MUA Luxe Velvet Matte Lipsticks – Shade 4 & 12 – I love this formula of these lipsticks. The formula feels so nice on my lips, not drying at all. But I do NOT like the bullet these lipsticks come with. The application because of these bullets makes it so hard to do a perfect application of these lipsticks. But apart from that, I love these lipsticks. Even the packaging is pretty sleek. 

IMG_0466
Perseus – you can buy this product right here – https://www.muastore.co.uk/mua-luxe-velvet-matte-metallic-lip-lacquer-perseus – retails for £3
IMG_0468
Perseus

MUA Velvet Matte Metallic Lip Lacquer – Perseus – I don’t usually like metallic lipsticks and don’t like buying any. But I thought I would give this a shot, and I really liked it. It isn’t patchy and not drying either. I love how it applied and it is a pretty metallic pink shade! 

 

I used the MUA Velvet Matte Lipstick in shade number 4 for this tutorial. 

Thank you so much for reading. This blog post had a little bit of everything, a review, a haul and testing out new products!!

Have you tried out any of these products? If so, comment down below! What about the Firmoo glasses, have you ever tried ordering from this website?
