What are they?

Longer lasting sort of ‘liquid lipsticks’… Gorgeous.

 

The Review:

There are 8 shades in the collection ranging from nude to bright vivid red. There is definitely something for everyone and there are some great wearable every days pinks too. The packaging is lovely and you can see the product in the tube which is fantastic!

Application is a dream with a doe foot like applicator with a twist – the product collects in a little hollow in the applicator (see the above picture). Genius! You can use the colour straight like that for the full on gorgeously pigmented colour or wipe it off a little for a more natural colour. They apply with a gloss like shine and then settle to a subtle sheen.

The pigmentation is beautiful, colour range is fantastic and the the product is long lasting – perfect for night out, especially as the colours don’t bleed at all. An added bonus is that they are so comfortable to wear, they don’t dry my lips out like some other long lasting lippies I’ve tried. Can’t fault them!

Collection Glam Crystals Dazzling Gel Eyeliners

What Are They?

Glitter gel eyeliners to add a bit of sparkle to your look.

 

The Review:

I originally bought the silver colour for my auntie as she was going to a silver themed party. As she didn’t use it, she gave it back to me so I decided to put it on over the liner I already had and it looked so pretty!

The first thing I noticed is the nice, fine brush on the applicator, it made applying the product easy and went on nice and neatly. The second thing I noticed was how pigmented the liner was.

My past experiences with other high street brands of glitter liners have not been very positive as I find that you get a lot of clear gel liner and perhaps a few specs of glitter – hardly the lovely solid glitter line you buy the product for.

These liners however, are beautifully pigmented and give you the full line of glitter. Not only this but it lasts a long time too and after wearing it a few more times, it easily lasts a good 6/7 hours on me.

Anything past that I cannot comment on as I haven’t worn it for longer but it looked exactly same as when first applied after that length of time, AND, without any glittery fallout falling onto my face.

The colour range is great and I now have 4 shades, a silver (Hustle) , a gold (Funk), a black and silver (Rock Chick) and a bright purpley blue (Shake It Up!).

Here are the colours swatched for you

Worth the Money?

These retail for an amazing £2.99 each and are readily available on the highstreet in places like Superdrug and Boots.

If you ask me, these are an absolute bargain and so pretty on the eyes. ¬†Affordable, gorgeous, readily available and an excellent shade range – what’s not to like?

You can also find these dazzling liners on the Collection website:

Sleek Eyeshadow Palettes

What is it?

A highly pigmented eyeshadow palette that comes in several different colour ways and contains 12 eyeshadows. The one pictured above is called ‘Sunset’.

The Review

I was so impressed the first time I tried these eyeshadows that I now own four of these palettes! The colours are VERY pigmented, easy to blend and go on the skin really smoothly. The palette comes with 12 shadows and a double ended sponge applicator that sits in a smooth black case with a large mirror on the inside.

The majority of the shadows in each palette are shimmery with a couple of matte ones thrown in – you may be able to tell in the picture that the only matte in the Sunset palette is the black, this however doesn’t bother me in the slightest as they also do a natural palette.

The natural palette contains plenty of matte browns and soft neutral colours which is fantastic for every day use!

There are several palettes to choose from depending on what you’re looking for, some contain crazy acid brights and others are more neutral but there is definitely something for everyone.¬†

Worth the Money?

These palettes are ¬£6.49 each from Superdrug or Sleek’s official website so I firmly believe they are well worth the money – that’s not even ¬£1 per eyeshadow and the quality of these are amazing!
