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

Benefits of Olive Oil

Hi Beauties,

I use a lot of natural products in my beauty regime and decided to share my remidies with you. One of products I cannot live wthout is olive oil. It is pure and natural and healthy for the skin and body. From my personal experience I recommend using Extra Virgin oilve oil since it's more natural and scentless.

Regardless where olive oil is applied – Face or body, it provides moisture to keep the skin looking healthy and beautiful. This natural moisturizer is best used on damp skin, since it reduces greasiness.

Olive oil works with dry and oily skin types since everyone has to moisturize. However, if one has acne-prone skin, one has to use olive oil in smaller amounts, due to the fact that is can lead up to blocked pores.


If one has dry and scaly skin, one should mix some sea salt, with the olive oil, and gently message it into the affected areas, to remove the dead skin, and enrich the layer beneath it.


For those who have dry nails and cuticles, olive oil is the answer. Simply, rub the cuticle area and around the nail, with a few drops of olive oil. This provides the cuticles to stay moist, and thus giving the nails a natural shine.

Eye makeup remover

One can simply add a few drops of olive oil onto a cotton pad and gently remove eye makeup without producing any irritation to the delicate skin around the eye. If regularly used, olive oil shall soften the skin, and smooth out any wrinkles. Then, procede with toner to remove the oil residue.

Hair care

When olive oil used on hair and scalp, it could provide the benefits of a deep conditioner. This is done, by coating one’s hair with olive oil, and leaving it for at least 30 minutes – The longer it’s left onto the hair, the hair shall be smoother and shiner. I, personally leave mine during the night. Afterwards, shampoo regularly twice to remove the film of olive oil, and continue with conditioner.

Avoid stretch-marks, treat dried-out skin and eczema by rubbing oil into affected region straight from the bottle.

Hope you found it helpful.

What's in my everyday make up bag?

Hi beauties,

I keep my everyday's essentials in a small Makeup bag on my vanity, since it's much easier to reach in the morning rather than going through loads of products.

E.L.F Mineral Infused Face Primer

This primer is amzing. It helps to keep oil at bay, therefore no retocuhing is needed throughout the day.

Rimmel Match Perfection in shade 040 Soft Beige

I use this concealer under my eyes to conceal my under eye circles.

Urban Decay Primer Potion

I use this primer in order to keep my eyeshadow stay put throughout the day.

Sigma F30 brush

With the sigma F30 (a large powder brush with the powder), works perfectly to set my concealer and mattify my face.

Rimmel Stay Matte Pressed Powder  

Inglot 330M (Matte)

This eye shadow is a light beige. I use it in the inner corners and brow bone.

Eyelash curler 

Rimmel Glam Eyes Day 2 Night mascara

I'd curl my eyelashes first, then put on mascara.

NYX Blush in the shade PB03 Angel 

I apply my blush with a small stipple brush in order to achieve a natural finish.

Summer Natural Eye Makeup Look

Hello Beauties :)
Beauty and inspiration is all around us. If we look around us and learn to really look at the nature and environment that surrounds us we really start appreciating the beauty of our world. 

During the past weekend my friends and I went to Comino, it is one of the islands that make up the Archipelago of Malta and it also has one of the most beautiful beaches.

The following eye makeup look has been inspired from this photo. Hope you like it.

Step 1:- I concealed my under eye dark circles with Yellow ELF corrective concealer and Deborah Milano concealer.

Step 2:- In the Inner corner of the eye I applie NYX Jumbo Eye pencil in Milk and the rest I applied Maybelline Color Tattoo in Turquoise Forever as bases so as to make the eyeshadow colors last longer and look brighter.

Step 3:- On top of the Jumbo eye pencil I applied expensive pink eyeshadow by MAC and on top of the Maybelline color Tattoo I applied Steamy eyeshadow by MAC with and eyeshadow brush. Do not forget to blend the two colors together in the middle of the eyelid so as to eliminate that harsh line.

Step 4:- I applied the peachy color in the crease and the dark brown color in the outer corner of the eye and blended the two colors together. 

Step 5:- I applied Urban Decay 24/7 eye pencil in Binge on the lower eye lid on the out corner.

Step 6:- Last but not least, I applied eyeliner and mascara.

And this is the finished Eye look:

These are all the products that were used:
