Quick Rave – Liz Earle Hair Products – Full Review coming soon!

haircare

Quick intro:

I’ve been using the Botanical Shine Shampoo (for all hair types) and the Botanical Shine Conditioner for oily hair for a little while now. I don’t have oily hair but I made a large order and got a full size of the product free of charge and as it’s so yummy, am working on using it all up before purchasing the one for either normal or damaged hair as I use a lot of heat on mine.

The shampoo is great as instead of using SLS and SLES, which are foaming agents present in most well-known hair cleansing products, they use a cleansing agent that comes from coconut yay! Many scalps are sensitive to SLS and SLES and this coconut and plant-based shampoo is suitable for all scalp and hair types. It’s even safe for coloured hair due to the lack of SLS and SLES as these can be harsh and are known to fade colour.

Initial Thoughts:

I am already a HUGE fan of Liz Earle and as you all know by now, the majority of the skincare products I use are from the brand so I was super excited to try the hair care goodies.

The shampoo is unlike the usual ‘better for you’ kind of shampoos as it lathers beautifully, smells deliciously natural and good for you BUT actually effectively cleans your hair. It. Is. Amazing.

The conditioner, despite not necessarily for my hair type as I got it free with a rather large order is also amazing! It smells yummy, leaves my hair super soft and shiny and doesn’t weigh it down either. Top Marks Liz Earle, as usual!

Sleek Blush By3 Palette – Initial thoughts

 

 

sleekblushby3

 

 

What is it?


A Sleek blusher palette containing 3 shades of blusher – 2 matte shades and one shimmery shade. The one I have is shown here and is the orange/peach/coral palette.

 

Initial thoughts:

These palettes come in a few different colour ways and contain 3 highly pigmented blusher colours all in a sleek black palette ideal for travelling.

These are highly pigmented, smooth, blendable and great value for money. In the palette I bought, there are two matte shades – a bright orange and a bright coral – and a shimmery peach too. I can’t say I know about the other colour ways as I didn’t look at them properly in the shop but I believe that there’s a pink toned palette and also a brown/bronze coloured one. I would assume the ratio of matte to shimmery shades would be the same for the other palette but perhaps not. If you have any of the others then feel free to comment below and let us all know!

 

Worth the money?

As with all the Sleek make up I own, I was thoroughly impressed. The matte shades are pigmented and smooth, these colours aren’t chalky and it’s great to have a shimmery shade and matte shades all in one palette. The packaging is great for travelling, sturdy and yet not to bulky – sleek, slim and simple with the added bonus of a large mirror.

These palettes cost £9.99 here in the UK and are available from the Sleek website or Superdrug.

MAC Eye Brows in Lingering

CindySherman-EyeBrows-Lingering-72

What is it?

A very thin twist up eye brow crayon (no sharpening needed) in a medium brown ash colour.

The Review:

I honestly have no idea why I haven’t done a blog post on this product before. I use this every day and have done for several years now. It’s a very thin brow crayon (I say crayon as you don’t sharpen it so I guess it’s not a pencil? ).

It’s perfect from getting a really precise brow or for creating those realistic fine ‘hair’ strokes for a naturally full brow.

This product comes in a wide range of colours and is my all time favourite brow product, I would be lost without it.

The only complaint I have is that you can’t tell when it’s going to run out so it’s wise to have 2 at a time (they last quite a while anyway) so that you don’t suddenly run out completely. There is no clear part or indication of how much of the product you’ve used.

Worth the Money?

Yes, absolutely. This product comes in several shades including ideal colours for blondes and those with auburn hair as well as several browns. For £12.50 this is worth every single penny to me, nothing works as well as this and the shade range is really good.

This product is available from department stores and MAC :
