Here is what the November Beauty Plait consisted and my review on the products –

#1 Narciso Rodriguez for her – Body Cream


This body cream comes in the cutest packaging and it is going to look great on my vanity. The cream states that it should leave the skin nourished and intensely scented. It is rich, creamy and has a smooth texture. It leaves the skin feeling silky and has Vitamin E. 


I liked the packaging of the product more than I liked the actual product. The scent for me is too too strong but it does leave the skin feeling smooth and silky.

#2 Shiseido Bio-Performance Glow Revival Cream


This cream states to resolve multiple skin concerns and leaves the skin with a fresh glow! It is a velvety texture and melts on the skin. It helps maintain the ideal moisture balance for a radiant glow.


In my opinion I liked how it moisturised my skin and left my skin with a glow however, when using the product I noticed it was a little sticky. All in all I enjoyed how it left my skin and created a good base before applying my makeup. I did not notice the product to have any impact on my skin’s imperfections.

#3 Versace Bright Crystal


This fragrance comes in the cutest little bottle. It has a Floral scent that is, “voluptuous for the Versace Woman who is strong and confident yet feminine, sensual and glamorous!”

I love the scent and was so happy to have it in my Beauty Plait!

#4 Makeup Studio Eyeshadow Moondust in the shade Green Galaxy




The Moondust Eyeshadow is a baked eyeshadow and Makeup Studio has them in a range of colours. All of these shades have a black or pastel undertone so as to help the intensity of the colour and the glitter increase!

What the shade Green Galaxy looks like on the eyes …

I loved this eyeshadow and I loved the shade I got! I think this is a perfect shade that I can use for a Christmas Makeup Look paired with a red lip! The shadow blends well however, there is a lot of fall out so I would suggest that when using this shadow to first apply your eye makeup and then move on to your face makeup.

#5 Invisibobble The Traceless Hair Ring


I really love my invisibobble it just makes using a simple hair tie boring now. What’s better is that it comes with a little chain and it also has the Breast Cancer Awareness logo, which I think makes it even more special.


The November Beauty Plait also included a Franks Discount!! That is amazing!! I will be using mine when I come down to Malta for Christmas!!

Here is the video I did unboxing the products –

To conclude … if I had to choose which box I preferred between the October or November box, I would have to say October box in my opinion was better because it included mostly makeup products and one hair product. But that is my opinion.

What did you receive in your November Beauty Plait? Comment down below!! 

Anywho’s I best get going!! I really hope you enjoyed reading!! Thank you so much for doing so!!

Sweet Sparkle – February Unboxing – Kiss of Winter

Hi everyone,

Today’s blog post is all about the Sweet Sparkle February Box. The theme of this month was Kiss of Winter.


I did not film a video however, I created a makeup look using all of the products and took pictures in between steps to write up a blog post.

I am really enjoying the fact that now we get a card with all the items written down on it plus a little description on each of them and the retail cost. This really helps in seeing whether the box is worth it!

Before applying any of the products

Concrete Minerals РMineral Eyeshadow РShade Sweet Catrina РRetails for $8 

This is a 100% vegan and cruelty free product. It has quite a soft texture and is a pink-champagne shade that flatters all eye colors with a light shimmer.


My thoughts – I found that this isn’t really pigmented and you need to apply a lot of product if you want to get the colour onto your eyelid. Although, I have yet to try it with some sort of setting spray which might help the pigmentation pop.

Be a Bombshell – Baked Blush – Shade Teacher’s Pet – Retails for $6


This is a baked mineral refined into a powder formula for the ideal baked blush. It enhances your cheekbones with its lightweight glimmer of pink and gold.


My thoughts¬†– Since it has shimmers in it, your pore friends on your skin are going to speckle through and I personally do not like it! The colour is cute, the packaging is great; but as a product it isn’t my favourite.

Kokie Cosmetics – Dynamic Due Eyeliner – Retails for $8



The products entails to be a long wear, intense black and smudge free eyeliner. It is a double-ended liquid liner used to create a matte finished look that will last all night.


My thoughts – I loved the eyebrow pencil we got from Kokie in January however, this isn’t a favourite product of mine. The felt tip pen side is great however, the other side isn’t. When I try to go over the line, the black becomes patchy. It is true that it doesn’t smudge and it is quite long lasting. However, it doesn’t create an intense black look.

Crown Cosmetics РPro Volumizing Mascara РRetails for $4.99 


The mascara entails to lengthen, volumise and define lashes. The large wand akes your lashes to new lengths without clumping them.



My thoughts – The wand is pretty harsh on the edges so it isn’t my favourite wand. However, I love the effect of this mascara on my lashes. It doesn’t clump them together and the formula doesn’t transfer to my eyelids.

LA Splash – Velvet Matte Liquid Lipstick – Shade Cookie Dough – Retails for $14


The shade is dessert like and it has a velvet matte formula and is waterproof. It also exfoliates, moisturises and applies for a long lasting sultry look.


My thoughts – I love the rose gold packaging it is just adorable! The dofer applicator is perfect to help us achieve the perfect lip look. The smell though isn’t my favourite as it has this weird scent! But it really does last long, it isn’t patchy and it isn’t drying!

The Finished Look

Have you ever tried any of these products? 

Thank you so much for reading!

Sweet Sparkle – January Unboxing – Hello Beautiful

Hi everyone,

I decided that for the Sweet Sparkle January box I shall just simply do a blog post all about the products. It will also include photos I took of using the products on a makeup look that I created!

If you would like more information about Sweet Sparkle then visit their website Р 


Every month Sweet Sparkle choose products according to a theme. January’s theme was called Simply Beautiful. It basically revolved around beauty that is kept natural. In fact we didn’t get an eyeshadow palette as we usually do; instead we got a single pigmented shadow – which I can just say is just lovely and simple yet gives the right amount of colour to your lids!

I also liked that this month’s card came with the list of products we received plus how much they costed and a little description about them! I hope that this will be done in future boxes!


The products we received were –¬†

Kokie High Brow Angled Eyebrow Pencil in Blonde


For the first time ever we received a BROW product! And I really love this pencil as it is angled so it helps you attain the eyebrow look that you might want.

I am still brushing up on my eyebrow skills but I think I am getting better. I love the bigger brows (kind of like Cara Delevingne’s!) I found that with this pencil I managed to create what I wanted to!

This retails for $10!

Nicka K Contour Kit

Now this palette confused me as there were three shades. I know that the one on the left is a contour shade whilst the one on the right is the highlight shade. But then what is the one in the middle? I used that shade as a sort of blush to give my cheeks some natural colour!


I actually liked the contour shade, it is different to other contour powders I have used as this one is sort of an ashy brown! But it blended well same as the other 2 powders. They all gave more depth to my face!

This retails for  $3.99 Рthis is quite a bargain as the quality is quite good!

Bella Pierre Shimmer Powder – Beige


This was such a cute pigment to get. I found it set well on my eye lid and did not move in any sort. It also blended well and you could easily create an eye look with just this shade!

With my eye look besides using this powder I also used the highlight shade from the Nicka K Contour Kit!

(A photo of the eye look I created is below with the Hikari Mascara)

The Bella Pierre shimmer powder retails for $15!

Hikari MascaraJet

I did not quite like this mascara as it left my lashes all clumpy and did not separate them well. It also did not curl them if you know what I mean so I would not recommend this Mascara.


This retails for $15

J.Cat Beauty Wholly Addiction Lip Liner – Acorn


I absolutely loved both lip products in this box! The lip liner is such a nice mauve-y shade I love it. It also was not drying on my lips! I applied it all over my lips.


This retails for $2.99 – I highly recommend these lip liners!

Cailyn Art Touch Tinted Gloss Stick РLove Stamp 


I am trying to wear more lip glosses and I love having this in my collection.

The shade goes perfectly with the lip liner – it is like a dark pink glossy shade. It also isn’t that sticky!


This retails for $19. 

The total price of the box therefore was Р$65.98 Рthis is amazing as I only paid $24 for the box! 

So this month’s was definitely a good splurge!

Have you ever tried any of these products?

Happy weekend!

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!


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!


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! 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!

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!!

Sweet Sparkle Unboxing – November – Precious Metals (Better late than never!)

Hi everyone,

Yes I KNOW! This unboxing is a tad late! I know it is late because November was 2 months ago and I already received my December box which I still have yet to try out.

The look I created with the November Box

Unlike Lip Monthly I like doing full videos related to Sweet Sparkle because if you don’t know, the box sends out a couple of products whereby you can create an entire look! So I like just opening the box and filming myself to see what look I create with said products. However, I do not think that is going to be the case for the December box.

Comment down below if you want to see a video of me unboxing the December box as well as doing a makeup look with those products!

Anyways, so here is my video, 2 months late of the November Sweet Sparkle Unboxing.

You could visit their website right here on –¬†

A Month Subscription costs $24.50¬†so it is a little bit pricey however, we get products from drugstore brands (such as Jordana, Wet n’Wild, LA Girl etc… ) which for us Maltese we don’t see much of.

However there are different plans you could sign up to and if you want to have a look you can click here.


The November month’s theme was Precious metals¬†and so we got a pure metals fluid eyeshadow and metallic lipstick which I was excited about because I don’t own anything metallic in my collection!

BUT I was disappointed with this box because unlike the previous boxes we did not receive a MASCARA and I don’t think it was worth the money. I didn’t even receive the Precious Metals theme card we get every month. So it was a THUMBS DOWN for me.

Here is the video –

Here is what we received –¬†

Beauty Treats – Roses Eyeshadow Palette

This is an eyeshadow palette which I have used this eyeshadow palettes on other occasions besides for this video. That means that I liked it especially the rose pink shade I used in the video.

The eyeshadows are quite powder-y however I was not bothered by it.
Absolute New York Products РPure Metal Veil Fluid Eyeshadow Рin Champagne

I loved this product and loved experimenting with it. It emphasised my lines on my eyelids but concealing them and setting the concealer it should help.
LA Girl -Glide Gel Eyeliner

For the makeup look I created I wish I never used this product. But applying this product on its own with maybe one coloured eyeshadow on my eyelid would be great!
Jordana – Coral Sandy Beach Blush Powder

The blush is not my favourite colour however, it applied well on my cheeks.
City Color – Highlight Trio Palette

This highlight I LOVE! I love using the 2 lightest shades in the palette. Cannot see that yellow one as a bronzer as it has chunks of glitter inside.

I don’t like bronzers like that. But I love love love the last two light shades; they give a lovely highlighted look.
Klean Color Metallic Lip Gloss

I have never ever tried a Metallic lipstick before until tryout this one. It is a little sticky and it is not my favourite colour however the brand’s formula is amazing as it dries completely matte and lasts quite a long time!


How the metallic Liquid Lipstick looked on my lips

So what did you think of this month’s box? Are you subscribed to this subscription?¬†

Thank you so much for reading, and I wish you a lovely day/evening!

Sweet Sparkle October Unboxing – Shades of Fall

Hi everyone, 

Hope you are all having a lovely Sunday.

I have uploaded a new video and am in the mood to write a blog post about it. It could be because the window’s curtains are opened, and sunshine is passing through or because I finally feel so much better.

So since I have this energy mood, that equals me to being able to sit down comfortable on my bed, put a pillow under my laptop, turn on my pumpkin spice candle and I am good to go to write. Ahhh I love this good mood.

So today I uploaded a video of me unboxing the October Sweet Sparkle Beauty Box and the theme of the month was Shades of Fall.



You could visit their website right here if you are interested in subscribing and would like further information. There are three different types of subscriptions from you to choose from.

The products that I got were –¬†

Miss Adoro Blending Sponge

This blending sponge looks cute but I personally feel that it doesn’t do an accurate job of blending out your foundation/concealer to a natural looking finish.

I think the Real Techniques Beauty Blender is much better!

City Color Smokey Nudes Eyeshadow Palette





I preferred this eyeshadow palette to the one we got back in the September box from Jordana. I think this eyeshadow palette has a better colour pay out and the eyeshadows blend well altogether.

I also think that the packaging is so ideal and compact, it is not heavy and it is small so it would be a perfect palette to take with you when you are travelling.

Jordana Fabuliner Liquid Eyeliner in Black

I actually was impressed by this liquid eyeliner. I usually am not a fan of pen eyeliners as I feel that they are patchy and don’t give you the best colour pay off. Even though, I had to go over the line to be happy with the final look, I really liked this eyeliner.

Milani Runaway Lashes Instant Volume Mascara

I LOVE this mascara. I had even loved last month’s mascara by Jordana.

But this one is so good and I have been using it constantly! The wand is a basic wand, it seperates your lashes evenly and does not leave them clumpy. It does not transfer onto your eyelid and I just love it!

Wet n Wild coloricon Blush – shade apricot in the middle

This may not be my favourite colour as a blush – as I more of a pink blush girl – but with the look I created in the video and the theme of the month it goes really well. And I cannot say that the Wet n Wild Blushes aren’t good as that would be a lie. They blend nicely on your cheeks and makes your blush complexion even,

Nicka K New York Duo Highlighter NDO010

I have mixed feelings about the product. I mean I swatched them one shade barely showed and the other was a chalky white. And personally, I do not want a chalky white on my cheek as a highlight. I prefer the gold highlights you know?

But the colour payoff of this palette is quite bleak and you can barely tell that there is any highlight even when applying both shades. So I guess, this palette would be perfect for those people who are looking more of a subtyle and dainty highlight rather than the bright in your face highlights.

Rude Cosmetics Matte Lipstick in Swank

So one thing I have to say, each month the box comes with a card and the card will have a picture of a model probably wearing all the makeup products together with the name of the theme of the month.

The lip colour she is wearing is more of a purple-mauve shade but the lipstick I got is more peach toned rather than purple mauve-y toned. Now I don’t know if the model is wearing the lipstick or not, or because we have different shaded lips but Kezia was disappointed.

I mean when I swatched the lipstick on my hand I was so excited to try it on. But when I did I saw the shade as being a common shade that I already have in my collection. I cannot say that the formula of the lipstick wasn’t good, cos it was. It was not drying on the lips but moisturing and creamy.

So there you have it, those are all the products I received from Sweet Sparkle in the October box.

If you want to see me trying out the products and giving you my thoughts on them then you can watch it right here –¬†

I really hope you enjoyed reading!

Thank you for all the support!!

Happy Sunday!

MUA Haul Spring 2016

Hi everyone,

Ahhhhh!! I have filmed this video AGES ago but I never came to uploading it because I had collab videos and videos that STRICTLY had to go up during the month of April!!

But ALAS, it was finally the day that it would come up!!

I bought these items once the Spring 2016 collection opened on the MUA – MAKEUP ACADEMY online website!

This is such a fun site to shop around! I compare this with elf, I actually found it once elf stopped delivering to MALTA!!


Anyways here is what I got from MUA from their Spring line! I loved mostly the new VELVET LIP LACQUER shades! I got all but one. The one I did not get was a coral shade and I am not that much of a CORAL fan so I said I don’t need it !!!

But I love the rest of the new shades they are amazing!!!!

Enjoy the video:-

Lip Monthly – April 2016 Bag!!

Hi lip lovers,

How are you all doing? I had a really relaxing week so far mostly because I stayed home as I was a little ill. So I did not end up going to work. But today I went back to work, and all those relaxing moments I had seem to vanish away and I am back to being stressed.

Am really not looking forward to tomorrow and Friday simply because I haven’t been to work from morning till 6pm for a week now so I am afraid of it. I do not look forward to coming home and falling asleep and waking up and doing the exact same thing.

Nonetheless, since I work full time at a school this will all be over soon because summer holidays are coming. However mine really will not last long, maybe a week. Because then as one school ends another one opens i.e. Summer School.

Eurh …. hard life!!

Enough chit chat Kezia – Here is the video –

Anyways I am here talk – or in this way – to write about what I received in my Lip Monthly subscription bag this month.

I have to say it is not one of my favourites. The lip gloss it included was super tiny. The lipstick we received was of a similar shade to the one we received in March. And the eyeliner is not that good of a product. And also we got 2 lip glosses and let’s just say I am not too fond of those glosses. I mean come on … who likes it when you put on lip gloss and you are walking near the sea on a romantic date. There is the breeze and the waves of the sea swooshing about. And all you are doing and what you are focused on is the constant irritability of your hair. Constantly sweeping across your lips and getting stuck!!!


Anyways here is a little information about lip monthly –
