Sleek - The Berry Collection

Sleek have come up with a berry berry vampy yet feminine collection inspired by A/W runway trends. It contains three products, based on various shades of berry to do a full face with, without looking overdone.

I love the fact that it comes in a cute little package instead of having to purchase these products separately. Also, there is no Pout Polish in this collection, which is also a refreshing surprise and should be done by Sleek more often with their limited edition collections. 

Here we have a Kohl Pencil in Mossberry, a Blush in Fenberry and a True Colour Lipstick in Cranberry.

Aren't the names simply adorable?

Another thing that Sleek has kept in mind is that the colour scheme is quite deep and bold hence have kept the pigmentation of products slightly more workable and easy to blend, compared to their permanent line of products.

My favourite is without doubt the Kohl Pencil, which at first instance I mistook for being a lip crayon of some sort. 

I have no similar shade in my collection to give this baby a competition hence I simply love it! It does not have a reddish tone to it hence does not give that swollen eye effect. Personally, I feel the shade will suit Asian, Tan and Olive skin tones much better than the pale, blonde ladies out there. 

I like to wear it smudged all over the lid and slightly darker as I get closer to the lash line. It applies well on the waterline too. 
Oh I cannot stress how difficult it is for me to pull off reddish, berry blushers but this is quite warm and wearable and is literally the only one of its kind in my vanity.

It is moderately pigmented and easily blendable, just how you'd want it to be, to be suitable for a 'just jogged' look everyday. 
Cranberry is a matte plummish, berry colour with some red undertones to it. It works quite well as a stain dabbed all over the lips and some gloss on top.

I don't have the guts to wear it as a full on lip colour but again those of you who are used to wearing such shades are going to love this.
Overall, I have to say this is most exciting collection from Sleek in my opinion. Yes, even more than the Au Naturale one. Plus for £9.99, it surely is a steal!

Available from 23rd November(or earlier depending on your Superdrug!) in stores officially for a limited time only.

A look with this is inevitable so keep your eyes peeled lovelies.

I love the look of the blush, I agree the packaging on this is the best I’ve seen, not sure I can pull off the lippie though, but still might be tempted!

I love the colour of the kohl pencil and the lipstick! I have a Nars blusher in the same colour as this sleek one and it looks lovely on the cheeks. I think I may have to just get this set for myself as it is only £9.99!

Oh no... Sleek makes it so hard for me, time after time again. I so told myself I have enough, really, but that blush... Now that I've seen it my life simply is incomplete without it. I need to get into some Sleek Addicts Anonymous Club...

OK, this is fabulous. Until you told me, I had no idea that this wasn't a lip crayon...I agree with you in that it's probably better than Au Naturel. Damn, Sleek. Talk about upping your game!
