Later this month Sleek Makeup is releasing their Berry Collection which for the first time (I think) it comes boxed up and would make a perfect Christmas present.
In the set comes three products an eye kohl in Mossberry, Lipstick in Cranberry and blush in Fenerry. All the products are matte and are also full sizes. I have been trying out the products over the last couple of days to see what I think I love the colours as they are perfect for autumn and winter!
The blush is matte as I mentioned above and quite nice however I’m not really sure if it works for me. I think if you have darker skins this would be perfect but if you are paler apply it with a very light hand and it does add a very natural flush.
The eye kohl is my least favourite product in the range and I almost feel like Sleek didn’t quite think it through enough. The kohl is hard and difficult to use but my biggest problem is that it is too red for the eye area! It leaves my eyes looking sore and bruised instead they should have gone for a more plum colour in my opinion.
The product I was most excited about was undoubtedly the lipstick! I have been looking for a dark lipstick for a while and am still looking. I love the colour of this lipstick and I even like the finish but for me it it simply too drying and you can see all the dry patches on my lips, which is not attractive!
I really wanted to love this collection but it fell a little short. I loved the box idea especially as it is coming up to Christmas but very few people I know are daring enough to wear such dark colour. Also the products weren’t quite as great as I had hoped. This is probably my least positive Sleek review but it may simply have been because I wanted to much from the collection.
I really hope that they do bring out some more boxed collections! They are a great price though at just £9.99 from Superdrugs, available next week.
What do you think of the collection?
