Review: My re-found love:- Deborah Liquid eyeliner

Heyy Beauties,

Hope you had a great start to the week :)

So, a couple of days ago I used up my MUA gel eyeliner, (Review click HERE), and I did not have a backup. Whilst rumaging through my collection I found my Deborah Liquid liner which I had totally forgotten about.

Deborah Liquid Precisione Eyeliner
I got so used to applying eyeliner with a brush that I forgot how to use a liquid eyeliner hahaha. However, for my first time after so long I applied it quite good,

Using Deborah Liquid Eyeliner
Although I really like using Gel Eyeliner, I had forgotten how much I used to love liquid eyeliner. It is true that when applying Gel liner you have more control over the application, however I find that no Gel Liner is as dark and black as a Liquid Liner is.

The downsides of this product is that the brush is very flimsy and frayed. However, this may be because of how long it has been in my makeup collection hehe :)

Overall, I really like this product. It is very black and it has remained liquid and not dried out even though it has been unused for so long.

I wish to try other similar products, which is you favorite Liquid Eyeliner?

Until next time,

Jessica :)

Collective HAUL

Heyy Beauties,

How are you all doing? :)

As promised on our Facebook page, here is a Collective Haul of products I bought online.

First off, I had been contemplating for quite a some time, to buy some false lashes and good lash glue. So, I went searching on e-bay last week and found the Duo Lash glue, that everyone raves about on Youtube and some lashes. I found the glue for 7 euro including shipping, and 10 pairs of lashes for about 3 euro with shipping. Great deal in my opinion.


Last Saturday I was browsing around the ELF Cosmetics site and I noticed that they were offering free shipping during that weekend, therefore I could not pass up that opportunity and bought some ELF products, since it was about 6 months from my last ELF purchase.

My first two choices were two lipsticks, Gypsy and Flirtatious. Love both colors and I have to say I was impressed by their quality; very pigmented, apply smoothly and also have a pleasant smell.

Gypsy and Flirtatious

The following are swatches of these two lipsticks:


Then I chose two blushers and a bronzer because I noticed that I really do not have almost any blushers and bronzers, and the only one I had broke. The first blush is Blushing, then Bronzed and Sun Kissed.

 The following are the swatches, in order mentioned above:

Next, I decided to try out the Makeup Remover Pen, that Dyna at Dyna's Random Blog, raves about, and I must say it really does work. Last but not the least, I picked up and Angled Blush Brush because I needed one for contouring.

Those were all the products that I bought,

Hope you enjoyed this post,

Until Next time,

Take Care,

Jessica :)

Review:- MUA Gel Eyeliner

Hey Beauties,

It is a great idea to try new products every now and then. Therefore I decided to try out MUA Gel eyeliner. In fact, a couple of days ago I bought MUA Gel eyeliner in ‘Underground’.

This product claims that: 

“They are intensely pigmented and are completely smudge proof once the product has dried.”

I have to say that I concur whole heartedly with this statement. This Gel eyeliner is pigmented and does not smudge. It has a creamy consistency and glides on nicely

It has a small eyeliner brush embedded in its cap. The brush is not that bad however I prefer using the Elf Eyeliner brush.

Apart from the color underground, it comes with three other shades: Fairground, On Move and Tribe. It also is a very affordable product, I paid approximately 3 to 4 euro including shipping. 

The downturn of this product is that it is very small. From the pictures I expected it to be bigger. However, the fact that it is a good quality product and affordable at the same time makes it a very good purchase. I recommend this product to anyone.

What are your view regarding this product?

Have you tried it before?

Until next time,

Take Care

Review: NYX double sided eye pencil

Hi Beauties,

One of my favourite online makeup brands is NYX. It is amazingly cheap 
and good quality. Browsing through the NYX cometics website I found these pencils in the clearing section and decided to try them out.  This product is discontinued on the NYX website,  but it can be found on cherryculture and joy cosmetics on ebay. (Links will be linked down below).  The Double Sided is an eye Liner & Shadow which makes it easier to create an easy and fast smoky look. The brown eyeshadow side is smooth, glides on and wears well without creasing with a primer.   However, the black has a hard texture but if one rolls it between their hands it will be softer and easy to apply. I use both sides as an eye liner. It stays on the waterline for good 2 hours if set with an eye shadow. I like the brown side more since it gives more of a natural look instead of harsh black. If I were to see them in different colours, I would buy them in a heart beat.

Dress Haul

Hello Beauties :)

Today I did some damage. I lately sworn not to shop anymore but we all know that that type of promise to self is never kept. 

I bought all the following pieces from a local boutique called She Fashion wear in Mosta Malta. This outlet offers every type of clothing and shoes at affordable prices. 

I bought 4 dresses and a clutch bag. I thing they are perfect for the Summer time since they are light and flowy, perfect for the hot weather here in Malta. 

The first dress I bought is a High Low type of dress. This trend has become very popular and I think it is trendy and classy at the same time. 

The next one is a strapless type of dress. Its coral color caught my eye immediately and I could not pass it up :) It can be worn both in a casual way and also more formally by adding cute heals and a clutch.

The next two dresses are form fitting type of dresses, on the upper part, but then the skirts are quite flowy and light. The blue one has a very cute cut out detail on the back which I taught was very pretty.

The last item that I bought is a white clutch bag. It is simple but it can be matched and paired with almost every outfit. It is a basic item that every girl should have in her closet.

Hope you like this haul. Till the next post,

Take Care
