Hello beautravelers! 😀
Is there any of you who are a big fan of Mediterranean Sea? I mean, who would say no to the idea of a vacation there?
And if you’re a fan of beauty products, then I’ve got a good news for you… Because now on Around The World With Beauties, I will talk about 2 beauty products from 2 countries around the Mediterranean Sea: Greece and Malta!
So next time, if you’re planning a vacation or honeymoon in both countries, maybe you should consider to try their local beauty products. And thanks to Nikoleta Oikonomou who recommends Korres Advance Brightening and Nourishing Face Oil from Greece, as well as Lourdes Gio who took some time to write on Stellar Cosmetics Glitter Eyeshadow from Malta. 🙂
Korres Advance Brightening and Nourishing Face Oil (Greece)
Contributor: Nikoleta Oikonomou
Blogger/Youtuber and proud Aquarius who is obviously in love with fashion. She is inspired by movies, music and pop culture. She tries to create different characters through fashion.
I would like to recommend my favorite Greek product, which is Korres Advance Brightening and Nourishing Face Oil. First of all, Korres is a Greek company that produces organic cosmetics with natural ingredients.
Most of their products are made of herbs, flowers and various plants.
Wild rose is a specific line that includes moisturizer, eye cream, face mask, facial oil, concealer and makeup. It is used to prevent skin from aging and with vitamin C, it helps your skin to be bright and healthy.
I have been using this line for many years, especially the face moisturizer. I have used the brightening oil since last year and never stopped ever since!
During winter time, I use the facial oil as a night cream to dee moisturize, while in the summer I usually use it 2-3 times a week as a serum.
It costs around €15 (around $18 USD) and with its multifunction use, I think the quality comes with the price! 😉
Stellar Cosmetics Glitter Eyeshadow (Malta)
Contributor: Lourdes Gio
She is a 17-year-old, almost 18, from the sunny Malta, a small country in the middle of the Mediterranean. She loves fashion, makeup and traveling. She blogs as well as she vlogs.
In my country, there aren’t many local beauty products, but there is one in particular that always caught my eyes with its products and originality.
I am talking about Stellar cosmetics, a Maltese brand run by Francesca and Liz as they make handmade, vegan and cruelty-free pressed and loose powder glitter eyeshadows and highlighters which, as far as I know, is the only brand that does that in Malta.
I own three different colors of the pressed powder glitters, which come in 26 mm pans. The ones I have are Champagne, Rose Gold and Silver.
Something that I would like to mention is that they are very affordable for the amazing quality as they are only €2.99 (around $3.8 USD)!
To have a good result, one has to apply a glitter base but I personally use moisturizer or water to wet the brush before applying it and it works just as good.
These are two looks that I created recently with Champagne and Rose Gold. As you can see, I don’t like to put a lot of glitters, but if you do, you can always build it up by applying more.
For the first look, I decided to go for a natural makeup look and with a pop of gold glitter using Champagne and then I topped it off by applying eyeliner.
For the second look, I went for a very pink-purple look and Rose Gold glitters on top, and again I didn’t put a lot of glitters as I like the eyeshadow underneath to be visible.
If you consider to try out these glitters, which I think you should if you ever land in the land of Malta, you can also use my discount code LOURDES5, in which you will be eligible for 5% off when placing an order.
Okay, so we all know that Greece and Malta are two beautiful countries in the Mediterranean Sea. But then now that we all know about this Korres and Stellar Cosmetics, I think it’s fair to say that now you’ve got another reason to visit these countries and experience the good local beauty products.
I think for Korres, you can actually find the brand in some online shops in Indonesia as well. But for Stellar, I suppose you should totally go to Malta to get it? 😉
Anyway, that’s all for today. See you in the next feature on Around The World With The Beauties and cheerio! 😀
