Pupa Paris Collection MULTIPLAY Eyeliners Review!

I get way excited when I find an eyeliner which is perfect. Let me explain. I do not wear certain colours on my eyes. For example blue and green are shades which I tend to avoid unless it is dark navy blue. So, when I was sent these gorgeous eyeliner and swatched them I almost fainted.

These are the Pupa Milano Multiplay eyeliners from the Paris Collection limited edition. Check this edition here. The Multiplay liners come in 2 gorgeous shades 64 - Deep Purple and 65 - Peacock.



The eyeliners can be used in basically 3 different ways as outlined here

I find that the 2 shades are just perfect for the Christmas time and winter time in general. We tend to go all monochrome and kind of dark in winter, however, I honestly love to wear a coloured liner just to add more fun and more character to the makeup.

The liners themselves are super pigmented and the colour payoff is intense and what's just perfect is that the intensity stays on throughout the day i.e. it doesn't fade or smudge or anything. 


Having said that I do have quite oily lids but these liners stay on all day without smudging. In all fairness I am not a big fan of using liners as eyeshadows but these liners do blend really well with the smudger to create a soft look. One can always intensify the look by applying more layers and applying a matching eyeshadow.

I seriously adore these liners and I haven't stopped wearing them. They cost 8.90 euros and if you're from Malta they can be found in these locations:

Attard: Transforma
San Gwann: Lourdes
Sliema: Drug store (ferries)
Msida : Deby’s pharmacy
Qormi: Evans Pharmacy
Zebbug: Diva’s H salon
Fgura: Chain (Perfumery section)   
B’Bugia: Martins Pharmacy
Zejtun: St. Catherine’s Pharmacy
Marsaxlokk: Epoca Beauty
Gozo: Hair Flair   


Do not forget to check their facebook page for more information on all the products that they carry.

Hope you found this review helpful!

Happy Holidays!!!!

Dr.Organic Organic Royal Jelly Night Cream | Review

It is definitely getting cold here in Malta. Mind you I do love winter quite a lot. With the change in temperature comes a change in the skin care I use. I have quite oily skin on my face but in winter it tends to become somewhat drier.

A couple of weeks back I was invited to an event organised by Dr.Organic . This first review is that of the dr.organic Organic Royal Jelly Night Cream.



Royal Jelly is a substance which is used to feed the Queen Bee. Normal working bees are only fed this during the first few days of their larvae stage. The Queen bee is continued to be fed this Royal jelly. It has been used since ancient times as an anti aging product. 

Royal jelly has moisturizing, nourishing, rejuvenating, soothing and healing properties due to its rich and precious composition consisting of  variety of nutrients, plants hormones, minerals  and vitamins essential to the body. Royal Jelly contains the essential amino acids which are the building blocks of collagen which supports the skin tissue and is very important in maintaining the skin's firmness.
 It helps with tightening fine lines and reducing the appearance of wrinkles. Royal jelly also assists in keeping the skin hydrated  and hence the skin is soft, supple and smooth.

I can go on and on about the benefits of Royal Jelly but I am just going to add some info about the product itself. 

It is an overnight repairing and rescue cream with a rich, luxurious texture containing a rich blend of Organic Royal Jelly, Aloe Vera, Jojoba Oil, Calendula, Macademia Oil, Papaya Oil, Japanese Fruit Wax, Irish Moss, Shea Butter, Honey, Red Clover, Heather, Vitamin C plus Cedarwood, Lemon, Geranium, Patchouli, Petitgrain and Sandalwood Essential Oils. The skin is nourished and hence it is more radiant, firm and has a smooth appearance. Overnight, skin cell renewal is stimulated and this helps to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

This cream may be my next favourite thing. I am quite picky when it comes to night creams as a lot tend to be quite thick and oily and do not really do anything. I feel my skin supple and more radiant the morning after. It also feels more hydrated and nourished. I feel that it's jelly/cream consistency makes this product ideal for all the skin types. It doesn't feel oily on the skin although it takes a while to be absorbed through the skin.

What is more good about this product is that is readily available in various stores around Malta (check this link here to check the nearest store) and it doesn't really break the bank like some expensive night creams. It costs 9.49 euros. 

Hope you found this review helpful!

A must buy for winter!

Dr. Organic Malta Event

At last! I am writing a blog post. I had a quite stressful week at work that now I have lots of things to write about in my blog and videos to film and upload because I haven't had any time!

So, earlier this week I was invited, along with my fellow bloggers, to an event organised by Dr. Organic. I have been quite into simple organic skin care and hair care products lately which lets just face it, is always a good thing to try.

Below is a brief introduction on the brand itself:



In Dr. Organic products one finds organically grown ingredients. The products contain the finest natural and organic raw material where possible. These products are thoroughly tests to ensure that they conform to the strict quality guidelines. Bioactive extracts are used to ensure each product is truly functional by nature. Dr. Organic products contain no harsh chemicals such as parabens, SLS (Sodium lauryl sulphate), perfumes or artificial fragrances.The products are not tested on animals and most of the products are non animal derived, with the exception of honey, beeswax, propolis and royal jelly. No minerals are included in the ingredients and hence petro-chemicals such as paraffin and petroleum are avoided. Instead plant based oils and extracts are used.  No genetically modified or genetically engineered organisms are used and where necessary only high grade preservative are used.

The event itself was quite an intimate one and it took place at the lovely Villa Bologna in Attard. The lovely Teri gave us an overview on the ranges which Dr. Organic carry. We also got the opportunity to try out several products. And I can also say that I have set eyes on some products already! Very generously, at the end of the event we were given the opportunity to take home with us 3 products to try out for ourselves.

Here is what I took home with me:
