Events- New Coccinelle store in Malta

Hello Guys,

Recently a lot of great events have been going on lately but unfortunately I had to miss them because it was raining like crazy in Malta. I get sick very easily with change of temperature so I didn’t want to risk getting sick because it was extremely windy too. The two events I ended up missing is of the new Italian High-end, handbag shop called Coccinelle at Tower Road Sliema, and the launch of the new Premium Nail bar at Tigne point. Even though I missed the launch I was able to visit the store on a better day and I have to say it’s beautiful, not just the elegantly designed store but also the luxurious handbags it holds.  Even though I missed the event, some other fellow bloggers have made it to the Coccinelle event, and I thought of sharing the posts with you guys, enjoy 🙂

All thing’s fabulous:

NYX- The Ultimate Pearl Shadow – Bronze Pearl

Hello guys, Today I will review another product I got from NYX which is this Ultimate pearl shadow in Bronze Pearl . This eye-shadow is one from the vast selection of colours from this range. All seem to be very vibrant and have that pearl-like pigmentation that can make your eyes stand out. NYX  have been creating very good quality shadows for a while now and this pearl shadow definitely keeps up with the standard.

Pros:

  • Very good Pigmentation, i love the texture of this shadow
  • I like the black sleek packaging with it’s transparent lid
  • It has a good amount of product so it will probably last me for long time
  • It is easy to blend and it is also buildable.
  • The price of this eye-shadow is about 5 euros which can be seen as a little pricey for some being that it’s a single eye-shadow, but as I said before it has a lot of product.

Cons:

  • It is a little bit too glittery for my taste, some of you might like the glitter but for me it doesn’t do it.

e3
Will I ever buy this product again? Well I’m not sure if i’ll buy the same colour but might purchase another one in a different colour.
Do I recommend it? I do recommend them especially if you like shimmery glittery shadows, but if you don’t check out some other great shadows which NYX have, they are worth every penny. For the Maltese they are available at Tower Road, Sliema.

Have you tried these shadows? give me your opinion down below 🙂 thank you for following, keep posted

Anatomicals – Exclusive Pre-Launch in Malta

Listen up men and women, Anatomicals are available in Malta :).If you aren’t familiar with this brand, you are about to be. I honestly wasn’t familiar with them until last month but since I saw these products, I couldn’t wait to try them out. Anatomicals consist of a range of skin care products from soaps to facial creams for men and women. What struck me the most is their colorful packaging, and wicked sense of humor. Each product has a funny name and a tag-line which will definitely put a smile on your face.

Anatomicals

You can’t help but notice, that these products sell for a very cheap price. I haven’t seen any skin care products this cheap anywhere.They currently sell at Asos, Tesco and various drugstores in the UK and are also massive hit in Germany. But the best thing is, that now they are available to everyone in Malta and even internationally thanks to a new website called Anatomicals which you can check out here. This website is run by a friend of mine which also has another successful website with products for Men, called Men in Malta. So do check them out.

MeninMalta

I always make sure to research about every products brands, and from what I read people love these products because they are good and inexpensive. The words “Cheap” and “Good”, ring happy bells to us beauty addicts. The awesome thing is I get to try these products first hand :), and once I have truly tested them out, I will give you a more detailed review. All I can say for now is they smell very nice, and I can’t wait to pamper myself with these products. I think they are also a great Idea to give as a birthday present, or maybe stock up for Christmas gifts.

I had a chat with the founder of Anatomicals website in Malta and got to know more about this cool brand. Check them out:

How where you introduced to the brand?

Well it was by chance really I came across their products while I was doing some research online for my other store Men in Malta. Their style of branding caught my eye immediately.  And I could not resist, the sometimes ‘rude’ wording on the backside of the product. I first bought some of their products as testers and I was impressed even more when they arrived. You might as well say it was love at first sight. Despite the fact that they were inexpensive they still delivered to my standards. From there onwards I decided to share these great products with all the cool people in Malta.

What drove you, to start selling them in Malta?

Apart from what I mentioned before, the main reason was that there are so many boring and unappealing products out there, that these are a breath of fresh Air in such a saturated market.  What makes these products unique from the other products in the market is that they are targeted to those that have a cool and wild attitude. So be part of our WILD team one and join our facebook page 🙂

What product do you use a lot?

As a good honorable man that I am, I generally keep a very moderate grooming lifestyle. This consists of a face wash routine, a good scrubbing every 3-4 days and some very basic use of oil control moisturizer. Since these last 9 months I can say that i have constantly been using the memorable daily face wash which is a unisex kind. I made vast use of the man range funnily named manatomicals. In fact I have become quite addicted to their body wash products for men. So good and manly. Another main product was the headache balm which is surely my best friend on bad days. It reduces my ‘throbbing headaches’ to bits which is also great also for hangovers. I am also addicted to the peachy shampoo and most of the hand washes available.

What is the product that you would suggest women to buy?

Well limiting this to one is impossible.. as yet I have not received a negative remark from any woman as they represent a perfect price vs more than average quality for such product. I could easily recommend all the great lip balms and the hottle tottie range.

What is the product you would suggest men to buy?

If you’re a guy like me than I would highly recommend all of the manatomicals range.

So what are you waiting for, go and check these product out on www.anatomicals.com.mt. If you are spending over €20 you get free delivery in Malta and Gozo, so what are you waiting for? 😛

Have you tried any of their products yet ? If so would love to read your comments down below 🙂

NYX – The Curve Eyeliner

Hey guys,

On my last visit to the NYX store I bought this new Curve eyeliner which I have been using for the last month. The eyeliner comes into this amazingly designed tool with a sponge pen applicator. If you have read my previous reviews on eyeliners, with this type of applicators, you would know how much I actually dislike them. However this product changed my mind completely.

N1

First of all let’s talk about the packaging of this eyeliner, what is there to say but “well done”. Finally design and make-up are coming together to create a comfortable way for us to apply make-up not only on ourselves but even on our clients. I love how the eyeliner is designed for the index finger to fit in perfectly, so that it makes the application way easier. The eyeliner can be a bit difficult for some to apply, so this definitely will help. “Design” does definitely “meet it’s function”.

N2

Now let’s talk about the eyeliner itself, finally an eyeliner that comes out of a sponge applicator that works properly. Usually eyeliners with this type of applicator do not transfer well, smudge and you cannot apply a thin liner because the product doesn’t come out well. However to my surprise this is the opposite, it transfers well and it is a very nice dark black. You can apply a thin layer if you don’t want a heavy liner and it doesn’t smudge. Did I mention that this eyeliner is also waterproof? yes it is and a very good one. It is great to take with you on holiday as it takes only a few minutes to apply.

N3

This lovely liner retails for about €14 which can be seen a bit pricey for an eyeliner but believe me it’s worth it. I am really loving the eyeliner and I will purchase this eyeliner again once it finishes. I really have nothing bad to say about this eyeliner, I am truly loving it :). For all the Maltesers you can find this gorgeous eyeliner at the NYX store in Sliema, do check it out.

Have you tried this gorgeous liner ? would love to read your comment down below. Thank you for following, keep posted for more

Event- The New Dean Gera HairCare in Collaboration with the Make-up Store

Hello guys,

1

This beauty blogger has been quite busy these past 3 weeks, with events and new openings which means that great things are happening in Malta :). I was lucky enough to be invited to the gorgeous new Dean Gera hair salon. The Salon is actually connected to the beautiful Make-up store at the Point shopping complex in Sliema. I have been to the Make-up store a couple of times when it first opened. I have been in love the quality of their make-up and now you can get to have your hair looking good too.

It was a lovely event and we were greeted with some tasteful Martini Royale Cocktails and nibbles. The salon is beautifully designed with the same sleek black and while design as the make-up store has. Me and some other bloggers tried the nice leather Salon chairs and we definitely liked the idea of getting our hair pampered in these comfortable chairs.

Being the make-up addict that I am, I ended swatching most of the make-up store products and ended up buying some of their amazing products. We were given a goodie bag with some nice hair products sample which I can’t wait to try out and also a product from the Make-up store. I will do a  short separate post to show you all the goodies and products 🙂

Price wise Make-up store is very similar to Inglot not too expensive but not cheap either, however in the end you are really paying for the quality you get. Dean Gera Hair Care treatments are quite similar to any other hairdressers I have been to as seen from the list of prices we were given, and they seem quite reasonable.

I hope you enjoyed this post, I highly recommend for you visit both Make up store and the Dean Gera Hair care as you will definitely will enjoy it.
