The Beauty Club Malta, a new one stop shop for leading beauty brands, shall be opening its doors to the public tomorrow! How exciting is that?! Today, together with other bloggers, I was invited to see the shop and its amazing products, before they opened and I thought I’d share a sneak peek of The Beauty Club on the eve of its opening.

Walking into Debenhams, opposite the MAC counter, one can find The Beauty Club; with a dreamy yet minimalistic display, one can see all the brands beautifully showcased. Brands include Clinique, Estee Lauder, Aerin and the awaited Tom Ford which will be newly launched tomorrow and only available at The Beauty Club.


Aerin, which is also being launched tomorrow and is exclusive to Debenhams, is a brand owned by the grand-daughter of Estee Lauder. From this brand, at The Beauty Club, one can find the most gorgeous of perfume bottles! I took a liking especially to the ones with the semi-precious stones on the cap – so girly and lush!


Tom Ford Beauty is a luxury beauty brand that created cult favourites like their signature Lip Colour range as well as Traceless Foundation, Cheek Colour, and Cream Colour for Eyes. My favourite product from those available at The Beauty Club has to be the Reflects Gilt Sheer Highlighting Duo but the bronzer compact and lipsticks also caught my eye (they’re beautiful, both texture and packaging wise!)



I also uploaded a glimpse on instastories so you can check that out by searching @thereseannesammut.

They’re launching tomorrow at Debenhams so go check them out!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

Event | People&Skin in collaboration with Rosemarie Abela Fashion Studio

Last week, I was kindly invited to an After Summer Launch at People & Skin, one of Malta’s leading med-aesthetic clinics in collaboration with Rosemarie Abela Fashion Studio.

The event marked the launch of the new Juvéderm Volite rejuventation treatments at the clinic, a showcase of the AW17/18 collection from Rosemarie Abela and the unveiling of the painting Skin Diptych by an artist known to be one of Malta’s best female artists, the late Isabelle Borg.



The event kicked off with some prosecco and a brief introduction by Dr Joanna Delia and Ms Michelle Degiorgio. They spoke a bit about the clinic and launched a new treatment at the clinic, Juvéderm Volite by Allergan. I had already been to the PR launch of this treatment, courtesy of Vivian Corporation so I will give you some information about the treatment below.



Juvéderm Volite is the first minimally invasive injectable treatment designed to improve skin quality for up to 9 months with just a single treatment session. It aims to improve skin smoothness (skin that is smooth and lacks fine lines), hydration and elasticity (firm and supple skin), with minimum swelling after injections and longer and more natural looking results. Containing hyaluronic acid (which is a natural substance in skin that has the stunning capacity to attract and hold vast amounts of moisture), Juvéderm Volite can be used to treat the face, neck, décolletage and hands.




I also browsed a bit around the clinic, where they had products on display for different skin problems as you can see.

After a brief information clip about the treatment, we saw a glimpse from Rosemarie Abela’s collection, La Cupola inspired by the Mosta Dome, the Maltese sky-line and the Neo-Classical Period. The color scheme screams autumn/winter with accents of gold and navy blue. It was a fantastic collection overall. I’ll insert some photos below so you can see for yourself. Well done Rosemarie!

Rosemarie has also designed the uniforms for the staff at People&Skin. The uniforms are the epitome of class and sophistication as can be seen on Michelle in the photo above (I have to admit, before telling us that they were uniforms, I thought it was the prettiest little black dress!) So another well done goes to Rosemarie!


To end this wonderful night, we saw the unveiling of the painting Skin Diptych at the clinic's reception area by Dr. Joanna Delia. She explained how the late Isabelle Borg is one of her favourite local artists and she couldn't pass on the opportunity of having this painting hanging at the clinic since it embodies the concept of the clinic, which like the painting, revolves around skin



Thank you People&Skin for the invite - it was a lovely and informative night!
Looking forward to return to the clinic to get one of their treatments done.

Happy Sunday!

Love, T

Review & Swatches: Guerlain Fall 2017 Collection | KISSKISS Matte Lipsticks & Intense Liquid Matte Lipsticks

Review & Swatches: Guerlain Fall 2017 Collection | KISSKISS Matte Lipsticks & Intense Liquid Matte Lipsticks

With Autumn being less than a month away, brands worldwide start launching their new collections inspired by the upcoming season. And what better way to start preparing for my favourite seasons (obviously being Autumn and Winter) than by starting to dig in the new collections?

Franks, one of my (and most Maltese people’s) favourite one-stop-shops when it comes to beauty, just launched the new Fall 2017 collection by Guerlain Paris. As everyone knows, Guerlain is a high-end, luxury makeup brand so it’s slightly on the more expensive side but let’s admit it, everyone deserves to treat themselves once in a while, no? Well, the new collection revolves mainly around the lips, launching the KISSKISS Matte Lipsticks, Intense Liquid Matte Lipsticks and as you saw in my latest giveaway 2 lip contouring palettes. On that account, let me tell you about 2 of these newly launched products!



The KISSKISS Matte Lipsticks boast a hydrating and plumping formula; they’re opaque and pigmented while being comfortable and lightweight on the lips as though a balm. I have just one tip; before applying it I recommend exfoliating your lips so you get the perfect application. I have the shade M377 in Wild Plum. Berry and plum colours are always a must have for Fall and this lipstick just ticks all the boxes. This shade is just somewhere between a plum and a berry shade, as it has a hint of pink in it. It’s also not that vampy so it is a perfect shade for transitioning from Summer to Autumn. Another thing I should mention is that I’m obsessed with the packaging! The gorgeous, matte soft gold packaging makes it such a luxurious statement accessory in ones’ bag. Definitely something you’d want to show off!



Staying on topic of lip products; also joining the Fall line-up are the Intense Liquid Matte Lipsticks. I guess we haven’t seen the last of matte liquid lipsticks, and although I’m not a fan of liquid lipsticks, this one seems to be more wear-friendly in my opinion. For someone who suffers with chronic dry and flaky lips, the formula doesn’t seem to dry out my lips further and does not stick and accentuate dry patches, which is amazing.

They have a creamy/velvety texture and applies like a lip gloss but after a few minutes, it dries down to a gorgeously pigmented and comfortable opaque matte lip. The reasons behind the comfort of this product is in the ingredients; it contains hyaluronic acid and tiger grass which apparently give the formula of this liquid lipstick a hydrating effect. As you can see I have the shade W69 in Attractive Plum which is the most gorgeous autumn colour. Also a plus is the packaging. The tube has an ombre effect starting from black and fading into the colour of the lipstick which makes it both easy to find when searching for it in your drawer and pretty to keep in your bag.


You can find Guerlain Paris in any Franks Outlet. 

I can’t wait for colder months, rainy days, cosy sweaters and of course bold plum lips!

Wishing you all a wonderful week!

What's New at Rimmel London

What's New at Rimmel London

Considering the amount of new products that come out every season from a multitude of high-end and drugstore brands, I’m still never able to resist trying them out. Luckily, from time to time I get to receive new products to try out from some of my favourite brands, which I’m tremendously grateful for.

This Summer, Rimmel London came out with loads of new products and courtesy of Rimmel London Malta, I got to try them out so I could share my thoughts with all of you lovelies.

So let’s delve into it!



Starting off this post, we have the Magnif'Eyes Palette in the shade London Nudes Calling. It contains 8 different rosey-nude shades ranging from matte to shimmery. Now to be honest with you the mattes are not as pigmented as I hoped they would be, but the shimmery ones make up for that – they are super pigmented and creamy so they blend like a dream on the lid. The palette is also quite compact and travel-friendly, having a nice sized mirror which you can use on the go.



Moving on, we have the Scandaleyes Bold Eyeliner. After reading some negative reviews, it got me really intrigued in giving it out a try myself. The liquid liner has a ball-tip applicator which I thought would make it harder to make a precise line, but boy was I wrong! It is so easy to use, and as you will see in the photo further below, it applies a mean winged liner. It boasts to be waterproof and stays on for a good 24 hours which I have not tested out myself so I can’t comment on that. But as a liquid liner, it's quite good. 


Next up we have the Radiance Shimmer Brick. It comes in 2 shades – 01 which is for lighter skintones, and 02 which is for more bronzy-olive skin tones. Since I’m quite fair, I got mine in the shade 01. It gives a nice bronzy glow to the skin without being over the top. I just love it for everyday use – for that healthy glowing look. 


At last we have my new found holy grail mascara. The Volume Shake Mascara packs the pigment while giving your lashes the volume they need – I was even asked if I were wearing false eyelashes when wearing this mascara! It does not clump and has a new shaking-system which refreshes the formula each time you shake it.  Overall, I think it’s a wonderful mascara.



All items have been used in the look below 


Have a lovely Sunday!

Self-Tanning with the Payot Elixir Range | Review & Demo*

Self-Tanning with the Payot Elixir Range | Review & Demo*
Monday, 24 July 2017
Read post

We’re in the middle of the summer season, and who doesn’t like getting that luminous summer tan? Well, if we’re talking about sunbathing in the scorching sun to get a tan, then I’ll be the first one to admit that I don’t like sunbathing. The main reasons being that I like my pale skin and secondly, the effects of sun exposure on the skin are something that I’m really afraid of – remember that the effects will not show now or tomorrow but in the long run.

However, nowadays, the beauty industry has come up with a way for us to tan safely – sunless tanner! So in collaboration with Franks – The Art of Living Beautiful, today I’ll be sharing with you how I self-tan when I have that special event where I want to look all nice and sun kissed.  


Let’s get into it!

So after I hop in the shower and wash myself with some shower gel using a pair of mild exfoliating gloves and rinse myself, it’s time to exfoliate using a deep scrub. Today I’m using the Payot Elixir Gold Scrub. Like the tub it comes in, the scrub itself is gold (how cool is that?!). This is because it is rich in golden sugar cane grains mixed with jojoba oil. I take a good amount of the scrub and rub in circular motions all over my skin. Although it is quite a deep scrub, it’s still nourishing and creamy leaving your skin feel as soft as silk. And the scent, don’t get me started! It smells divine – it contains notes of myrrh and amyris so it’s quite wood-scented yet florally if you get what I mean. It comes in a pot of 200ml and despite it is slightly pricier than other scrubs, it’s a huge tub that will last you for quite a while, and in my opinion it’s quite worth it.


Now moving onto the tanning part. This was my first time self-tanning so I must admit I need some practice. However, the Payot Elixir Sublimant Mist comes in a spraying can which makes it for easy application. You only have to spray onto dried skin at a distance of around 40cm and leave it to dry without spreading. Just a warning; as soon as you spray it, it comes out as an oily sheen which you’d think won’t make a difference colour-wise but after a couple of hours the colour starts developing so I suggest waiting for the colour to develop before going in for another round. It applies quite uniform (so no patches) and leaves you with quite a natural tan. On my first application, the only issue I had is on my foot as I applied it too closely and quite heavily without waiting for it to develop so I was left with quite an orange foot HA! However, practice makes perfect and now I learned my lesson that I have to apply it from a distance and wait for it to develop. It also contains extract of black rose which leaves quite a luminous and soft effect on the skin.


As you can see, the difference is quite noticeable from one leg to another yet it still looks quite natural. Just in case you’d like to know, I applied 3 layers of tanner.  


Phew! If you made it this far, than thank you for reading through such a long and detailed post! If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
