NYX EXCLUSIVE BLOGGERS PREVIEW!

Image
HEY DOLLS! Last Wednesday I went to the NYX exclusive bloggers preview -  even though the shop has been open for a couple of days,  but it was a fun event - and after years of online shopping  I could see the whole range of NYX products in person!



I swear it's more fun than I ever thought it would be.  The prices are similar to the prices on the NYX UK WEBSITE - only they're at times cheaper but you'd have to bear in mind there are shipping costs on the NYX website. 
They have such a huge variety of makeup - no need to tell you about that though,
NYX is quite famous already so I'm not going to bore you with the details -

I'll just show you a few photos.
In case you're wondering it's located opposite Morgan at Tower Road, Sliema.
and they have 3 floors total.

It was such a fun event- got to catch up with some of the other bloggers because
it's been a long while since we had a meet up
and we even got a goody bag.

They have cute shopping baskets which the…

ESSENCE quattro eyeshadow in 01 CIAO BELLA! | Review w/ Swatches !

Image
HEY DOLLS!
I have had this eyeshadow palette for quite a while now,
I got this in a swap actually.. and I'm pretty sure this got discontinued, because in all honesty - I lost count with Essence and Catrice products.  Now sometimes, companies discontinue products that are worth discontinuing.  Was this one of them?

ABOUT THE PRODUCT The eyeshadow are nicely pigmented and quite buttery, but a tad powdery, too.  The shades are such a beautiful combination -  I've done my whole eye makeup using just these eyeshadows. There are two light shades and two brown shades.  None of the shades are matte but the finishes vary.  The eyeshadow shades include:  A cream slightly glittery colour,  A frosty peachy shade,  A satin cool toned brown shade  A glittery warm toned brown shade BOTTOM LINE I quite like this eyeshadow palette, I don't get why they discontinued this palette,  but it's quite a nice eyeshadow palette. 
 That's it for this post!
and till the next.. take care!

MUA Love Hearts Sweet Kiss Lip Balm | Review w/ Swatches !

Image
HEY DOLLS!
I hope you're having a great day..  I have already reviewed one of these -
you can check out the review HERE
And I loved it so much I got a second shade!

ABOUT THE PRODUCT This is part of a line from the MUA range.  It says it's a lip balm,  but it's more of a tinted lip conditioner if you ask me.  I don't find it has any hydrating qualities,  but it feels nice and soothing on the lips,  making it the perfect texture for summer.  The packaging reminds me of the Sleek Pout Polishes,  and even size-wise, they're more or less similar.  They also open with screw-like packaging, just like the Sleek ones.  I have tried the Sleek ones,  and as much as the Sleek ones are raved about,  I think these lot are better for my tastes.  If I buy a tinted lip balm, I expect a tinted lip balm, not a stain.  The Sleek ones sometimes act as a stain,  which I get can be something positive - but I don't like that in a tinted lip balm.  It has a lovely vanilla scent, simi…

WJCON Gitter Eye Liner in Gold | Review w/ Swatches !

Image
HEY DOLLS! A few months back I was invited to a WJCON meet up thing -  and I got some products from their brand.  In case you've never heard of it -  WJCON is an Italian brand available in Italy and Malta for the time being.  The price range I'd say is quite wide but still very much affordable.  The brand provides great quality products that deliver. 




ABOUT THE PRODUCT This gold glitter eyeliner was in my goody bag.  I was quite pleased about it because  I normally love gold glitter eyeliners.  But did this one deliver or what?  Depends the way you see it.  If you're looking for a gold chunky glittered eyeliner,  this will probably not fit your bill.  But if you're looking for a gold shimmery eyeliner,  you'd probably love this. I love using both shimmery and glittery eyeliners  and I found this to be very pigmented, non watery, and beautiful when applied on the inner lashline.


I used this in the following tutorials:

BOTTOM LINE A great liquid gold eyeliner,  I w…

HEY DOLLS! We had been dying to find out if we're having a boy or girl  and in my previous doctors' appointment we were told whether our baby's a boy or girl, but it was a "probably" so we weren't quite sure. 
This morning we had the appointment again, and we found out we're having  a BABY GIRL!  We are both very excited to welcome our little princess and hold her.  But till then she's stuck in my belly kicking mummy like there's no tomorrow :D
We love you little one - Mummy & Daddy xx

MUA NEW Cover and Conceal | Review w/ Swatches !

Image
HEY DOLLS ! MUA recently launched two new concealers - a liquid one - Cover and Conceal  and a creamy stick one - Hide and Conceal.  I got both but in this post I will be reviewing the Cover and Conceal. 
ABOUT THE PRODUCT This is a liquid concealer in a lipgloss type tube,  with a doe foot applicator.  I have the shade fair , which is the lightest shade.  Pigmentation is sheer to light - so it fails to deliver as a concealer.  I sometimes use it as a form of liquid highlight.  But it doesn't do much for my under eye circles. 
 and check out how it rated against other concealers:
BOTTOM LINE I didn't like this concealer,  and I honestly don't recommend it. 
I got this for £2 because I got this with the 50% OFF but it originally costs £4 from  www.muastore.co.uk.  Check out their fanpage HERE for promotional offers and updates! That's it for this post!
and till the next.. take care!
