NYX- Za Za Zu Mascara

Hello guys,

Since NYX opened in Malta I have been loving all of the products I bought and given. As I am always on the look for a new mascara to fall in love with and when I saw this mascara with its huge wand, I knew I had to have it  however it failed to impress :(. I really don’t like giving bad reviews about products but unfortunately this has to be one of them. I am always 100% honest in my reviews and if I don’t like a product I wouldn’t want others to waste their money on products that aren’t so good.

Pros:

  • The mascara comes in a  nice black sleek packaging
  • I love the brush, it’s big and thick and I imagine with a good formula it will give gorgeous lashes.
  • A good way I found to use this mascara is as a primer, you apply it first to give it that slight thickness than apply another good mascara for the final result.

Cons:

  • The formula just does nothing for me, it doesn’t give any me any sort of volume and it definitely doesn’t lengthen my lashes.
  • I have applied it with two coats and it like I didn’t apply any mascara at all, it just made my lashes a bit darker.
  • I also hate the nylon fibers in this formula it seems to be flaking off and it gets stuck in my eye.

Will I ever buy this product? I am sorry but definitely not, it just didn’t do it for me.

Do I recommend this product? I don’t, but I do recommend you try some of their other mascaras from NYX because I’m sure they do a better job.

Eyebrow Tutorial

Hello beautiful people,

Last week I was watching a lovely eyebrow pictorial from the lovely Nicole from Nicole’s Beauty blog which you can visit here. She did this lovely eyebrow pictorial and transformed her eyebrows to perfection. I have to admit, I do not give a lot of attention to my brows :O shame on me hehe. Being that now eyebrows are given a major importance in make up looks, I shall show you my own method of creating the “perfect” brows.

Eyebrow

  1.  In the first picture you are seeing my natural brows with some Vaseline to help them stay put. I start by applying a dark brown almost black, kohl eyeliner.
  2. Then I use a white eye pencil and outline my eyebrows, to give them a defying shape.
  3. I blend the white pencil and apply come concealer that matches my skin colour.
  4. Finally I bend the concealer and use some powder to help the liner stay put and not smudge.

I do hope you like the eyebrow tutorial, unfortunately the pictures aren’t great but that will do for now. Hopefully in the future I get to purchase a good camera.  Do check Nicole pictorial as it is by far better than mine.

Thank you for following and keep posted as tomorrow I have a new look coming up for you guys. I do hope you like it 🙂

Wjcon -Bloggers Event

Hey guys,

So last Friday I was invited at the new Make up shop called Wjcon for a bloggers night. It was such a fun event and I was honored to be part of it.  As I walked right in I was immediately welcomed by Angelo an Italian Make-up artist and all of the people that made Wjcon happen.

Angelo and Marisa

The lovely Marisa introduced us to this Italian brand and explained that Wjcon stands for We are an Icon. Also explained that the products are cheap not because their quality is cheaper but because they wanted to make it,very affordable for everyday woman to still look great and like an Icon.

The shop has 2 levels, the ground level is filled with gorgeous make up and the first floor (which they call funky bars) is like a small beauty salon where you can get you eyebrows fixed and your nails done.

They also offered to get my make up done, and because I wanted to fully absorb the Wjcon experience, I went for it. One of their lovely make up artist did my full make up and explained what products she used on me. I loved the final look but being that I had smokey eyes, I would have toned it down on the lips, but a very well done.

Last but not least we were given a small goodie bag with some of their products and I also ended up buying 2 products that really caught my eye. I will review these products further on, once I have fully tested them out.

It was a great even, I enjoyed every minute of it and the make up is just fabulous, and they have anything you could ever imagine to pamper yourself, including skin care and tools. If you are looking for good quality make up and cheap price go to Naxxar Road, Birkirkra, Malta and get some Wjon products.
