Sleek Eau La La Liner in 293 Raisin

Sleek liners come in 20 different shades and are for eyes, lips, brows and anywhere else you may want to use it. This is actually my third one and all have been equally pigmented. I think they're a just a great formula and just a complete versatile product. Sleek Eau La La Liners are nice and creamy but they still keep the finish they are supposed to have and are easy to use. 


Raisin- Is a very deep matte wine berry tone with a plum purple touch. I've been using this as a eyeliner and for lips. Both ways have incredible staying power. Applies evenly and opaque, however if you want to soften it on the lip area I line my lips with this and blend in with my finger. 


Overall superior product and at a small price of £4.00.

Collection 2000 Lasting Colour Lipstick in 10 Berry Blast

This is truly a lovely lipstick from Collection 2000 or shall I now say just Collection, yep I still can't get my head round the new shortened name. I kept misplacing this lipstick so I meant to do this review a lot earlier.
Sadly this colour '10 Berry Blast' is hard to find lately and your best bet is Ebay. It doesn't seem to be on their site any more and I haven't seen this particular shade in store for a long time. I wonder why? It's in the new packaging so it's all strange to me.

Lasting Colour lipstick comes in a standard plastic black shiny casing with the little Collection logo on top in pink. Quite sturdy packaging and I like it better than their old style, it's much more classy.

Berry Blast is a deep milky plum purple with a cream finish. It seems to have a slight blue sheen to it. I find this lipstick to be very opaque and pigmented and last for a good 3 plus hours with drinking, it also leaves a nice subtle even stain as it wears off and has a very creamy texture although I wouldn't call it hydrating nor drying.

There is a scent that is like artificial strawberry, I don't really like it but it doesn't seem to be overpowering and once you put it on you don't notice it and no bad taste either.

Overall a good pigmented long lasting lipstick with the same colour on the lips as you see on the bullet.  RRP is £2.99.

BeautyUK Lip Lust in No.9 Cocktail

BeautyUK has two formula's of these glosses one 'Lip Vinyl' which has a white cap and has supposed to have intense colour like a opaque lipstick and the other 'Lip Lust' which is supposed to be a very pigmented lipgloss.

Lip Vinyls come in a sophisticated squeeze tube packaging but it has a sponge wrapped round the slant which most squeezy tubes don't. I find that the sponge if very soft but it just soaks up way too much product for me to appreciate, though it's easy enough to squeeze the lipgloss out to your finger or a lip brush. You get either one of 3 flavours/scents to your gloss which are mint, strawberry or paypaya. The scent is pretty light and I couldn't detect it till I put it close to my nose. I gathering that this one is papaya without a horrid taste.

Cocktail - Is a semi-sheer medium orange coral it's not as pigmented as I thought it was going to be but it's a nice gloss to say the least. The texture isn't sticky nor watery and smooths out your lips, definitely a flattering lipgloss. 

At £2.99 it's a descent gloss and there's 11 shades to choose from not even including the Lip Vinyls. I think I'd like to try a sparkly one next. :)

Superdrug Optimum Super Antioxidant Grape Ultra Protecting Eye Cream

I'm now nearly half way through this eye cream from Superdrug's own brand Optimum and I do see results. However I wish it did a little bit extra like combat dark circles which it doesn't do nor claim to do, so please don't buy it for that reason. 


Super Antioxidant Grape Ultra Protecting Eye Cream contains PhytoCellTec "Solar Vitis" extract from a rare grape, which helps to strengthen the skin's cells and Collaxyl which rejuvenates ageing skin by stimulating collagen synthesis for a smoother firmer complexion. It also contains Vitamin E and Pro-Vitamin B5. 


The benefits from using this eye cream are hydration, protecting the delicate eye area, reducing the appearance of lines, wrinkles and puffiness. It also stimulates collagen production for firmer younger-looking skin. It states that you can expect to results in just 4 weeks.

 
I've been using this product a lot longer than the 4 weeks and I found that I don't suffer from any dry patches under my eyes which sometimes happens to me, my overall under eye looks a lot smoother and I see my puffiness is reduced, although I still see dark circles. I'd rather have an eye cream that does the whole job in one and there are plenty on the market that do. If you don't happen to suffer with dark circles but would like the other problem areas to be worked on this is for you. 

You get 15ml of product which comes in a squeeze tube which I think is much more hygienic than eye creams that are usually packaged in a pot. The eye cream is a light hydrating formula which sinks in very little time, also a little goes a long way and I've been using this everyday and night for over two months and I have a little more than half left. RRP is £9.99 but is currently on offer for £4.99.

The product is is also fragrance free, dermatologically tested, opthamologically tested and also suitable for vegetarians, vegans and against animal testing like all Superdrug's own products.

Etude House Tear Drop Liner in #1 White Tear

After purchasing Korean brand Etude House Tear Drop Powder it made me more eager to try the liquid liners. Tear Drop liners are absolutely nothing like anything I've tried over here, it's a different thing altogether.
The packaging is way bigger and chunkier than I expected with a long handle. The applicator is a brush and I also found that the brush is perfect, it's quite thin but soft and easy to work with.

There are around 4 shades of what I know of. White Tear is a sheer but striking iridescent white eye liner. It has millions of tiny micro glitters that catch the light, it's like glazed fairy tears. It's like a highlighting eyeliner that gives a eye look that extra oomph. I love the fact that it lasts all day and doesn't flake, smudge or budge but is easy enough to remove at the end of the day or night. :)


I'm really happy with this product from Etude House and if you like glitz, sparkle and highlighting products this is for you. You can get these from Ebay around £5.00 including postage and packing.
