LOOK and Review: Sleek MakeUP Berry Collection






I haven't been THIS excited about makeup in a while!

I admit -- I am IN-LOVE with Sleek MakeUP's latest offering - the Berry Collection. This is a trio berry-toned shades: Mossberry eye kohl, Fenberry blush and Cranberry lipstick. At first, I thought a trio of dark berry shades were too much for a whole look; turns out, they're perfect together, especially for this cold winter season! The quality of these three products is fantastic; I foresee a lot of use of these products - especially the liner and the blush. Keep reading for my review, swatches - and a look wearing all three. :)



Mossberry eye kohl looks like a dark maroon on the pencil, but it swatches like a dark red violet, cranberry like. It looks very similar to Cranberry lipstick in swatches. It applies well on the lids, doesn't particularly glide or tug, and it lasts at least 4 hours on my oily lash line without smudging, fading or transferring. Its pretty good actually!




Fenberry blush is a dark pinky nude blush. At first I was intimidated by the colour, but it applies like a natural flush on my cheeks. Its darker than the blushes I usually wear, so I tend to apply this on the hollows of my cheeks for a contouring effect, as well as on the apples of my cheeks. It's quite pigmented so be sure to blend well!




Cranberry lipstick is a dark berry red colour. It's a matte, but seems to apply with a bit of a sheen. Because its a matte, you need well moisturised and flake-less lips (not like mine!). Dark colours like this tend to be more difficult to apply straight from the tube; a matching lip liner would be useful to help define your lip line.

Here are swatches: L to R: Mossberry, Cranberry, Fenberry



My look wearing all three, with MAC Blot PowderMaybelline Colossal Volume Mascara and Etude House Brow Pencil. 
 







For £9.99 this is a fantastic deal, you should definitely pick it up before it sells out!
This would make an awesome stocking stuffer or Christmas gift for that trendy friend of yours ;)
I believe you can purchase this at your local Superdrug or the Sleek MakeUP website.
