Sleek Cosmetics Berry Collection Review and Swatches

I know that I am ‘supposed’ to write about the sweet pastel shades as it is Spring…

But I just want to show you this set from Sleek which is still available (I’ve just checked) and which is their ‘Christmas collection’. I just had to get it as the colours are very beautiful!

This set is called the Berry collection, retails for £10/€12 and includes three berry products:

  • Fenberry blush, crimson rose
  •  Kohl Pencil  Mossberry, a deep burgundy
  • True Colour lipstick in Cranberry, a matte mulled wine  colour

Now I have pretty mixed feelings about this set. Although I LOVE it a lot, there are things that I don’t like that much.

Fenberry blush

This is my first blush from Sleek and I really like the quality: pigmentation, staying power and the shade are amazing. I am definitely getting more blushes from them in the future. Have you seen their amazing trio blushes?

Kohl Pencil Mossberry

This is actually  a wearable shade although it may look scary to some people. This liner was the main reason why I wanted the set to badly.  It is not the softest liner and it does not ‘glide on’ plus doesn’t have the most amazing staying power but I love it anyway. If you are afraid of the shade – try adding a thin black line on top and lots of mascara! It would look amazing on green eyes but I love it on my (brown) eyes, too.

True Colour lipstick in Cranberry

This is the lipstick that I was wearing for my Birthday which actually says a lot. I absolutely adore  the

Inglot AMC Matte Eyeliner Gel in 90 Dark Brown Review and Swatches. Rave

Today I want to show you this incredible product from Inglot which is their AMC Matte Eyeliner Gel in 90 which I’ve  called Dark Brown. They also have a 89 brown shade which looks different.

Here is how it looks like in the pan. You get a top quality product for a decent price ( 5gr £10/12, and I think it was even cheaper some time ago).

As for the quality, this may be the best matte gel liner I have ever tried. It doesn’t move, smudge or budge at all. Seriously once it’s put, you have to try hard to take it off, so work fast.

Although it is so long-lasting, it is

Sparkling Eye Liners I Am Loving

My favourite beauty product over the holidays was definitely Illamasqua’s Ore pigment, a glittery bronze which is so-so gorgeous, I highly recommend. But, besides the shimmering eye shadow, I’ve re-discovered some of my festive-appropriate eye liners. And my top two were:

Sparkling Eye Liners I Am Loving Illamasqua and Rouge Bunny Rouge

Rouge Bunny Rouge Quartz Eyeliner Devotion Ink in Tanzanite Essence (review and swatches)

Illamasqua Precision Ink in Wisdom (review and swatches)

They are just  extremely beautiful. Both are easy to control, have a gorgeous sparkling effect and nice pigmentation.  Wisdom is described as

Clarins Graphik Ink Eyeliner Review and Swatches

Since I am wearing an eye liner (almost) every single day, it has to be the best possible product on the market which meets all my expectations.

And Clarins Graphik Ink Eyeliner does.

I honestly cannot think of anything I did not like about this liner. It is ultra black, glossy, glides on like a dream, does not drag the skin. It also stayed on pretty well on me, I did not have any smudges during the the day.

A special shout out to the tip. It is the only type that I use on myself, and it allows both thin and thick application. While I love using  thinner liners  on others,  I  myself have hooded eyes so want my liner to be relatively thick without going over numerous times.  It truly allows any type of lines.

Needless to say I’ve used it up completely.

I am a big fan and would definitely repurchase at some point. When I get bored of trying new ones. Currently I am using byTerry one, and it is also incredible.

The price is £21/$27, and considering that it will last you for a few months, I find it to be a good deal. Clarins is available from Selfridges,HarrodsEscentual.com,  Nordstorm,  Sephora, Bergdorf Goodman.
