Eye Makeup On Point… with Nyx Cosmetics

A few day ago I received some Eye Makeup from Nyx Cosmetics.  Well I must say, I am not the best when doing eye makeup, and I see lots of tutorials to always improve my techniques.  The three products I’m going to show you here help to achieve some stunning eye makeup looks and without lots of effort or expert techniques.

Also Nyx Cosmetics are giving a free Chunky Dunk when buying these 3 eye products.  This is a moisturizing lipsticks.  It is suitable for  our everyday busy lives and can be used as a lipbalm, but having a touch of colour at the same time.

The first eye product I’m going to show you is the Glazed and Confused Eye Gloss.  This will create a smokey eye effect without all the pressure of blending the right colours.  Apply black eyeshadow and then add the Glazed and Confused Eye Gloss on top of it.  It has a creamy texture and it doesn’t feel heavy on the eyes.  It is available in 5 different shades.

The shade in the photo is No. 2 Toxic

It’s time for Glitter!  The Shimmer Down Pigment is glitter powder which is highly pigmented,  I loved the way I could play with its texture.  I also mixed it with the Eye Gloss and it sort of gave me a chrome effect look.  The texture is very fine.  These pigments are available in 6 different colours.

The shade in the photo is No. 6 – Walnut

The last product I am going to talk about is the Faux Whites Inner Eye Brightener.  My first thought where… What is eye whitener exactly?  I never used an eye brightener!  Well with the help of the Nyx Professional Makeup Artists, I was thought that Eye Brightener makes your eyes look bigger.  You apply it like your eyeliner on your waterline.  I also tried and experimented a bit with it and added some black eyeliner with it and it sort of gave me an ashy look.  There are 8 different shades available.

The one I have is No. 3 – Linen.

All these products are available in all Nyx Cosmetics Stores.

3INA Just For Fun Collection

In this post I will give my review for the 3INA Limited Edition Just for Fun Collection.  A collection full of life and colour.  Even the packaging itself speak the word FUN!   

IMG-9686

This collection consists of an Eyeshadow Palette, 2 Longwear lipsticks, a highlighter and an eyeliner.  It’s a colourful and bold collection, which helps you to experiment in whatever personality you want to have for the day.  

The Eyeshadow palette includes highly pigmented shades and great for the adventurous ones.  Personally I think that these colours can be applied for every skin tone.

IMG-9687

The Just For Fun Highlighter is a liquid highlighter.  I was dying to try a pinkish highlighter.  I love this highlighter, its texture is very easy to blend.  For an intense, enchanted kind of look, apply on the cheekbones using a sponge.  If you want a luminous look mix with your foundation and apply all over.

This became my all time favourite eyeliner.  Its applicator is amazing!!! It has a dual width paddle to adjust for different widths, depends on how you like your eyeliner.  This eyeliner is saving me lots of time.  You can also use it on eyeshadow, and still colours perfectly.

The longwear lipsticks are the same as the previous posts, but with different shades. (Checkout the 3INA Longwear Lipsticks post ♥️)  You can opt for a hot pink or a more metallic shade.  Keep scrolling for swatches 💄

Skinny Coffee Club

In this post I am going to speak, about a diet plan.
And no, it is not one of diet plans where you starve till death.  This diet plan involves a meal plan, which in my opinion includes a variety of food (including recipes), an exercise plan and drinking coffee.. The Skinny Coffee Club.  

IMG-8237

Example of a breakfast from the Skinny Coffee Club Program.

This coffee contains 63mg of caffeine, which is less than a normal cup of coffee.  These are some ingredients which this coffee contains, which will help in weight loss:
Garcinia Cambogia – this is a tropical fruit and the active ingredient in this fruit, Hydroxycitric Acid, boosts fat-burning and cut back appetite.
Siberian Ginseng – used to improve strength when doing physical activities.
Spirulina Powder – This type of Algae contains lots of vitamins like Protein, Vitamin B and Iron.  It also helps in reduction of cholesterol and prevents you from health diseases. 

IMG-8054

Each package also includes instructions of how to prepare your coffee and how much you have to add.

My opinion: I have to be honest that I deviated a bit from the plan when it came to exercise and food.  My aim was to keep the weight I have, and it actually worked.  I like the fact that my cravings reduced a lot.  When it comes to exercise, even before starting the program, I try to train at least 4 times a week, so I did more exercise than instructed.  Personally I really liked the food given in this program, believe me, it is not boring at all and includes any type of food you can imagine… it even includes cheat days!

You can visit the Skinny Coffee Club Website to see the full range of products they have.  All Style Syco readers benefit from a 20% Discount, simply by adding ‘FITSYCO’ at Checkout.

Uriage Water Sleeping Mask – Review

How do you feel about night masks? Have you ever tried one?
An advantage of night masks is that after leaving them to work during the night, one will see immediate results, because the skin will look so fresh in the morning.
I was given the chance thanks to Uriage to try their Water Sleeping Mask.  This mask smooths, moisturizes and gives glow to the skin during the night.

IMG-8408

To give hydration this masks acts on the cornecyte cement.  The cornecyte is a layer on the Epidermis (the outer layer of the skin) and by its high mechanical strength, it helps the Epidermis to perform its functions, therefore as a barrier from physical objects, chemicals and environmental factors.  So in a simple statement: A non-functional cornecyte will results in a weak Epidermis.  A weak Epidermis will results in a dull looking and unhealthy skin.

Apply before going to sleep on a clean face and let it work during the night.  In the morning wash your face with your normal skin care routine.
My Opinion: I loved the texture of this mask, it did not feel uncomfortable and or like I have another layer on my face.  Don’t worry that you might stain your bed sheets, because it didn’t.  In the morning I could feel that my skin is hydrated and fresh.  I think it is very effortless as well, because basically you are taking care of your skin in your sleep!

Uriage products are found in local pharmacies.

Denim Pastel

One of the fashion trends for spring 2018 is Denim in Pastel Colours… well you don’t necessary have to put your blue jeans on know! 

Personally I find this trend useful, since sometimes Spring is not as hot as expected, but yet not that cold, and denim is the perfect material.  Even it is so casual and these colours great for an afternoon outing.

These are some ideas to have some of this trend in your wardrobes.  All photos include links ❤

Stellar Cosmetics Makeup

Have you ever heard of Stellar Cosmetics?
Stellar Cosmetics is a start-up brand based in Malta.  They specialize in compressed glitters and pigments.  All there makeup is handcrafted.  It is vegan and cruelty free.  I had the opportunity to try some of their products.

– Highlighter ‘Daddy’s Girl’
– Pressed Glitter ‘Cherry Cola’ and ‘Rose Gold’

The highlighter is one of my favourites, and if you are the glow in the dark kind of girl, well you know what I’m talking about.  It is highly pigmented, so apply stroke by stroke so you don’t end up with unequal amounts.  I wear it lightly during the day, but love adding a bit extra during the night.  (Follow me on Instagram – my stories are highlighted a lot with this one :D) 

The pressed glitters can be used as a statement to your makeup look.  I suggest to apply glitter primer, for a more bold look.  Keep a separate brush for them, because I am not exaggerating, these compressed glitters they are literally saying.. you want pigmented makeup and here it is!  They are very long-lasting as well.

Regarding price for these cosmetics is 10/10, since they are very reasonable and also brand owners are very helpful.  Do not except any fancy packaging, respect the fact that they are a start-up and also you are paying very reasonable prices.  Don’t worry, postal packaging is totally safe guarding, so items will not get broken or lost.

You can visit the Stellar Cosmetics online shop here: https://tictail.com/stellarcosmeticsmalta
and as a gift Stellar Cosmetics are offering all Style Syco followers as 5% Off when using ‘MARIA5’ at checkout.

Exfoliation – In Collaboration With Uriage

It’s been a while since I posted a skin care post.  I hope you are finding these posts useful… Feedback Appreciated!!

In this post I am going to write about Exfoliation.
Exfoliation is used to remove dead skin cells.  If exfoliation is not performed as part of our skin care routing, the result is a pile up of cells on our face (and body) and skin will become dry and look dull.  Exfoliation makes the skin looks smoother and healthier.  Consult with your beauty therapist or if you have any medical issues, with your dermatologist, and they will help you choose the right scrub for your skin.  During this step I am using the Uriage Gently Jelly Face Scrub which is ideal for Normal to Dry Skin. 

unnamed

It contains exfoliating micro-beads which gently removes dead skin cells and makes space for new ones to regenerate.  For the best results use a Cleanser before and Moisturizer after.  You can also check out all the Uriage Range on their website!
