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 –

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!

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

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 –

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!!

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!!

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

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!!

Carbon Coco – Teeth Whitening – An Honest Review

Hi everyone, 

Hope you are all doing well! Today’s post is all about Teeth Whitening!

I am quite self conscious over my teeth as they aren’t straight at all. However, I do have very healthy teeth and I brush daily. 

Have I ever wanted to do braces? Yes, but due to financial reasons I couldn’t afford to do so for now. Maybe in the future I don’t know, but for the time being I have come to accept the appearance of how my teeth are. 

IMG_0408

Carbon Coco approached me a few weeks ago, and asked me whether I was interested in doing a review on their Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish and I accepted.

Carbon Coco sells a variety of items to keep those teeth of your white & clean! They are a 100% natural company and are animal cruelty free.

Their Activated Charcoal Tooth Polish helps remove plaque, keep your teeth and mouth clean and helps removes toxins in your body.

IMG_0417

Therefore, besides whitening your teeth it also promotes for clean hygiene.

IMG_0416

Carbon Coco also kindly sent me a brush along with the Whitener. I first dampened the brush with a little bit of water and dipped the brush in the charcoal. I then brushed my teeth for 3 entire minutes and then spat and rinsed my mouth. (You can watch the video to watch me brushing away and get a closer look of the end result!)

Besides the charcoal leaving some black coloured leftover around my teeth, I loved the product. I do believe that you have to use the product for a number of times especially if you have yellow stains but the end result is a good one.

I think that if you are interested in a cheap and safe alternative to whitening your teeth, then you should give Carbon Coco a go.

Their website also has individuals who are there to help, and their customer care service responds ever so quickly. So whatever you need to ask, do ask them and they will happily give you an answer.

ARAD Dead Sea – Black Mud Soap – Helps with Psoriasis

Hi everyone, 

Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday!

I wanted to come here and write up a small blog post all about the Black Mud Soap from Arad.

If you haven’t done so already, I regularly post reviews about products from Arad, and you can check the previous blog posts right here –

Also if you are Maltese you could also check out the Arad Dead Sea Malta Facebook Page!

Before starting the review I would like to share with you all that I have Psoriasis. It’s when the skin cells multiply up to 10 times faster than normal.

‘As underlying cells reach the skin’s surface and die, their sheer volume causes raised, red plaques covered with white scales.’

I usually get this on my scalp however, I now am getting this on the spine of my back. It is very irritating and if I do not use the correct products it only gets worse.

IMG_7705

Thankfully a product from Arad has calmed my psoriasis down. With that I am talking about this Black Mud Soap. This natural soap is enriched with minerals that helps in cleansing the skin and removing excess oils and dirt from your skin.

It is recommended for those who have normal to oily skin.

How do I use it?

17268913_10210796061870277_587152322_o

I do not use it every time but only every other time. Whilst waiting for the conditioner to set in my hair I apply this soap only to the regions whereby my skin is affected by Psoriasis; that is on my spine on my back. And I gently rub it onto it, leave it settle and then rinse it off. I then go ahead and shower as per usual.

My thoughts – 

17273486_10210796060110233_974433867_o

I find that this soap has helped calm down my psoriasis leaving my skin as normal as it can get!

For those of you who have Psoriasis, I know that it isn’t treatable but will stay with you for the rest of your life, so the only thing you can do is to keep it calm! And for that is the reason why I love this soap as that is what it does, it is so gentle on my skin and helps my skin breathe!

Have you ever tried this product or any other products from Arad? Comment down below would love to read your comments!

Happy Sunday and thank you for reading!

Love Kezia
