Sleek Eau La La Liners

Sleek Make-Up have recently come up with some wonderful Liners and have very funkily named them Eau La La, oh-so-typical of Sleek and their bold and loud theme.

They are available for £4 each in 20 shades and claim to be not only waterproof and highly pigmented in formulation but also for all over use on the face including lips, eyes and cheeks which is so convenient in my opinion as you get full value for money!

I have three basic primary shades in Moulin Rouge, White Noise and Cobalt Blue. I didn't feature them any earlier as I was figuring out how to use such basic bright and bold shades.

Without doubt, my two favourites are White Noise and Moulin Rouge. White Noise is a stark white but not a paper white, its a bit of a chalky white with some hint of blue in it if you know what I mean. 

Moulin Rouge is a warm toned, bright orange-y red which is always great to have in the collection as a girl cannot have enough shades of red ever. 

When I started using them as a liner, I knew they would work well as that's what they are designed for. The formulation of these remind of the Urban Decay 24/7 Liners, just not as soft that they smudge all over.

They are creamy enough not to drag on the lid but sturdy enough to set and stay put, without smudging. As for the pigmentation, I guess the pictures speak for them self. 

So I thought I'd create an artsy, creative look using all the three liners here. Of course I wouldn't wear this out but it was quite fun to play with. I am not a fan of Cobalt blue as its a milky, pastel, quite a retro blue which is difficult to pull off on its own. They have an indigo blue available in the range which you should check out!

I wanted to wear the coral red all over the lid, so I incorporated some thick black winged out liner, a warm taupe-y crease and the end result looked quite pretty on my warm skin in my opinion. 

They also don't crease on the lid as they are more waxy like a crayon than creamy like a cream eye shadow, so feel free to slap the colours all over the lid. 
And just to test out Sleek's claim of them being an all-round pencil, I slapped 'Moulin Rouge' all over the lips and it worked pretty well at giving a full on, opaque and matte red lip which I loved! You need this shade in your life. 

It felt a bit heavy on the lip as compared to when I wore it on the eye, leading me to assume that they are primarily meant for use on the eyes and not on the lips. But if you have a shade that can be used all over, like a pink or a red, it shouldn't be a problem.
It goes without saying that I am eyeing some plums, purples, pinks and browns from the range below. For £4 a pop, it's hardly going to affect the wallet eh? 

I'll let you know how I get on with the other shades. I'm really into Eye Liner these days, regardless of the colour so if you have any suggestions, especially for good liquid black liner, do let me know in the comments.
