Pupa Bronze Fever Collection

This year highlighters have been all over the place. I was never a big fan of highlighters but I was really surprised by the new Pupa Face and Body Highlighter from the Pupa Bronze Fever Collection.

The Face & Body Highlighter has a very interesting texture. 

To be honest when I saw it  I said to myself "Oh no this is going to be oily, slippery and super sticky". On the contrary, it has this almost gel like consistency which dries quickly and is not sticky. It feels fresh and lightweight and it gives this gorgeous glow to the face and body. I use it usually either with a small stipple like brush or honestly even your fingers will work perfectly.

Shade 2 Intense Gold

There are 2 shades available

001 – Light Gold
002 – Intense Gold

You all probably know by now how I love my eyeshadow sticks. Waterproof ones that is. The Pupa Made to Last Waterproof Eyeshadow sticks truly last the whole day through. 

They don't crease and they can be worn on their own or even under shadows as bases, which is my favourite way to wear them. They are very pigmented and are smooth and easy to to apply. 

Shade 13 Golden Rose
There are 6 shades in total in this collection:

013 – Golden Rose
014 – Rose Bronze
015 – Copper Brown
016 – Chocolate
017 – Golden Taupe
018 – Light Gold

I have been looking for a good overnight Lip Balm for ages. I am all about lip balms and so. This product sits right on my vanity table and I use it just before I go to bed. It has a really good feel without being too oily. The formula combines the shine of a gloss and the comfortable effect of a balm with a  touch of color to enhance the lips. The restoring qualities of the raspberry seed oil nourish lips deeply.  

Four shades are available:

001 – Sunny Honey
002 – Orange Sunset
003 – Tropical Fuchsia
004 – Juicy Cherry

Artdeco Hello Sunshine! Summer 2016 collection Review

I am always so excited for new collections from Artdeco and I feel like it is such an underrated brand and it's not featured that much. This collection is all about the Summer, the sun and the feel good factors which summer brings with it. As much as it gets too hot here in Malta in summer, there is nothing better than some sun during the day.

"Goodbye, winter! Hello, sunshine! The new bronzing collection awakens a desire for summer, sun, beach and sea. Say goodbye to pale winter skin and refresh your face with summery radiance. In the "Hello Sunshine" collection, intense aqua mingles with sparkling peach and warm red on fine bronze. Vibrant colors that exude a pure summer feeling."

The 2 products which I bought are the Sun Blusher and the Lipshine lipstick.

This blusher gives me life! The 3 colours, peach, nude with a touch of pearl conjure up a sun-kissed freshness on your cheeks. The gorgeous sun design makes you crave for summer, sun, beach and sea.
I love to mix the 3 shades together to create a  perfect blend of colours with a gorgeous hint of shimmer which  together give this gorgeous colour on the cheeks.

The colours can be used individually although it can be a bit challenging. However, I absolutely love the highlighter! It is just gorgeous, without making you look like a disco ball. The Blusher also lasts quite a long time on the cheeks. Also, remember that the blusher is Paraben- and lanolin-free. Mineral oil-free. Perfume-free.

The Color Lip Shine lipstick is the other product which I bought. It is Shade 06 Shiny Bronze.

The Color Lip Shine lipstick has a soft and light, creamy gel texture which is very comfortable to apply and delivers delicate freshness and brilliance for a unique finish. It is quite pigmented  and it is combine with a soft shine  and hydration which makes it a perfect product for the lips.

The lipstick contains shimmering polymers that naturally accentuate and beautify the lips without being too much shimmery. Having said that is not glitter. The lipstick is also free of parabens, fragrances and silicone.

Have you tried anything from Artdeco? Let me know below.

Sam Selby - The Sirena Collection

Sam Selby is an innovative designer from the UK with a passionate creative streak. Recently Sam Selby featured the launch of  her new line, The Sirena Collection during the Malta Fashion Week 2016. 
The bright and bold statement pieces are reminiscent of the sea sediment. Each item holds its very own unique pattern and shade. The designs are a balance of ergonomics and aesthetics, as Sam believes that each is as important as the other. Each necklace sits and frames the colour bones so that they accentuate the natural lines of the wearer. The perfect combination of the colours with the sterling silver, or gold plated silver, allows versatility to the wearer which creates a statement look for any classic or plain outfit.

A recent photoshoot which happened at MedAsia playa featured this collection. The model, Lorena Jaramillo showcased a number of statement pieces. Below are some of the shots of the collection:

Niumee Malta Concept Esthetique Opening

Last month featured the opening of a brand new concept here in Malta.

Niumee Concept Esthetique situated in Mriehel is a new concept, which is situated in a brand new and modern place. At Niumee one finds a group of well established professionals from various areas.

Services include:

Med Aesthetic Treatments
Beauty Treatments
Hair Salon
Semi-Permanent Makeup
Nail Bar
Eye & Lash Bar
Pedi Suite
Plastic Surgery Consultations
Male Treatment Room
Juice Bar

I was impressed by how easy the place felt. One can decide to dedicate a day and do nails, hair, facials and even a massage. This can be done in just one single place, which is quite convenient.You don't really have to go to the hairdresser, to the nail technician, all in separate places.

Below are some photos of the event. Make sure you check the NIUMEE Facebook Page for more details.
