This eyeshadow is a mix of shimmer, metallic and matte eyeshadow. The brown shadow in the top row end is a great transition color. All the eyeshades are superbly pigmented and I didn’t experience any fallout with them yet. This eyeshadow is perfect for fall/winter makeup and also for smokey eyes. I enjoyed playing with this palette and I see myself using a lot of this.

The medium face contour kit is not a hidden gem. Its been all over the blogosphere and has been a favourite choice contour kit to many. So I don’t have to say much about it. This contour kit includes contouring powder and a highlighter and this kit is perfect for daily wear.

Sleek Face Contour Kit In Medium

This lipstick is a semi matte finish red that provides full coverage and pigmentation. The formula is very smooth and buttery but transfers easily. This lipstick include properties of Vitamin E, Shea Butter and Coconut oil to moisturise and nourish lips.

Sleek Lip Vip Lipstick In Guestlist

This twist up eye pencil in midnight can be used both on the lashline and waterline. The pigmentation is quite intense and it didn’t smudge as yet.

Sleek Twist Up Midnight Eye Pencil

I love this particular eyebrow stylist in medium. It looks so natural on the brows and best to use on-the go. The angular shape gives a perfect outline to the brows and the spooley side clears any dust and groom the eyebrows neatly.  I am so glad I got this in the kit.

Sleek Eyebrow Stylist In Medium

This solace highlighting palette is life! I think this is the best palette in the kit. I can easily compare it to any high end highlighter to this palette and this will turn out to be a winner. I have benefit whatsup highlighter and this works better than the former. One shade on top row is creamy while the other three is in powder form. I also love the classy golden case packaging, it looks so classy and the mirror in it is bigh enough to do your makeup anywhere. Absolute love material.

Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette

This Sleek Matte me liquid lipstick in “Shabby Chic” is a pretty petal rosy kinda shade. It will suit fair to medium skintone very well. However, darker skintones should stay away from this shade. But you can work it out by mixing with another shade and you are good to go.

Sleek Matte Me In Shabby Chic

Sleek Full Fat lash mascara is an everyday mascara. I won’t say that it is the best mascara I have used because I have used better mascaras than this. However, it does a decent job for an everyday mascara. It helps in separating the lashes clearly without any clumps. It doesn’t lengthens the lash or add much volume but it opens up the eyes. Its the only miss in the kit.

Sleek Full Fat Lash Mascara

The blush by 3 lace is a bestseller trio from the Sleek. Again I do not need to talk about it in details as there has been detailed review about it online. These blush are insanely pigmented and gives a healthy glow and color to the cheek. Out of the three two shades are matte and the mid shade is slightly shimmery but not OTT.

Sleek Blush By 3 In Lace

I used the products from the kit and I loved how it turn out on me. I didn’t get to use the red lisptick as it wouldn’t match my eyemakeup. Rest everything is from the kit apart from my base makeup.

Hope you like the Sleek Box of Tricks Makeup Haul. I am in love with this kit, it is perfect for a gift as well as for personal use. This kit is a bargain at its a price, you get to use 9 products for around 2000 INR. These are all full size products and there is no mini product included in this kit. If you want me to review any particular product from this kit, please let me know and I will be glad to do a detailed review. Overall, I would say if you still wish to buy it keep an eye on the boots sale. As of now it is out of stock but you never know when it’s restocked.

Lots of Love,

Ric <3

P.S- This is not a press review. I have purchased the product and the post written is honest & unbiased.

 

 

Dress your Best with Modabridal.co.uk

Hello Divas,

Wedding Guest dresses 2016
Wedding Guest dresses 2016

Dresses are my weakness! I enjoy buying dresses from international websites because I am so sure I will never find the print, pattern, quality in Indian market. Don’t get me wrong! But you may already know how difficult it is to get a beautiful gown in Indian market. So my birthday is approaching and I am collecting things for myself. If you know me already every year I’ve been wearing a beautiful evening dress/one-piece on my birthday. That’s because birthday is the only day when you are pampered more often than unusual (unless you have a Prince Charming or something :-P) Also I loveeee to dress up like a Princess on my birthday  even my birthday cake comes with the name “Princess” on it. I spent crazy hours on the internet to buy any stuff. You know being a blogger makes you a research expert looking out for reviews and images etc. So today, I want to talk about this website called Modabridal.co.uk. I have been drooling over the collection on their website. They have everything from Wedding dresses for the Brides to Special Occasion dresses like a Prom dress, cocktail dresses or a simple maxi dresses. Apart from dresses they have a wide collection on shoes and accessories like Veils, Tiaras, Jewellery sets. Isn’t that awesome? This is like buying your whole outfit from a website without running to different shops.

Currently they are running upto 90% off on all dresses which kept in awe. I was keen on trying and shortlisting few dresses for birthday. I kept on discovering more on the website and found that they also have dresses for mothers on the website. That is really cool!  It gave me an impression that they have a dress for every kind of women and occasion. They are definitely not very cheap but I would say they are not even expensive. I remember spending 4,500 INR on my last to last birthday dress. I am not saying go buy a dress for 5k. Not at all, but you can consider buying on special occasion like if you are a bridesmaid or on Christmas, a cocktail party of your bestie etc. Let me show you a glimpse of few dresses that I liked from every section.

One of the important factors while doing international shopping is the shipping policy. They have two shipping methods and they ship worldwide, one is DHL and EMS. DHL usually takes 2-4 business days while EMS takes 3-8 business days. Also if there is any quality issue with product they give a refund if supported with evidence like a photo/video of the product. Alternatively, you can live chat or send a mail to customer service for any doubts or clarifications. If you wish to buy any of the dresses above you can get it on Modabridal-Dresses Online UK.

Hope you like my post. Let me know which dress is your favourite and what is the occasion you would like to wear it?

Lots of Love,

Dress like a Diva with Promtimes.co.uk

Hello Divas,

Today I want to introduce Promtimes.co.uk which is an amazing online shopping destination for dresses. I know you would say, “We don’t even celebrate Prom here in India.” Trust me; our culture has revolutionized so much over the years. I wouldn’t be surprised if we end up adding a date for Prom night. We Indians are leading when it comes to celebration. We have started celebrating “Halloween.” There is a festival of every season and reason. Gone are the days where we used to wear lehenga choli for every function. Now a day’s everyone wants to wear a cocktail/Indo-western dress for an event. Then there are bridesmaid and wedding dresses for reception party. One of my closest friend is getting married and while she is throwing her bachelorette party. We both are hunting for good dresses in budget and everything at the shop here looked so tacky to wear. There is just no variety when it comes to dresses in Indian market.

Promtimes.co.uk has some breath taking dresses for every occasion. There are long, short, evening maxi dresses, dresses for brides and bridesmaid, dresses according to colour, size and shape, dresses under £50 and £100. You cannot just help pick one. Also they have amazing offers and deals running around the year. Currently they have Upto 75% off + Free Shipping over £200.  Fab, Isn’t it?  I am a sucker for cheap dresses because I know I am not going to wear it frequently. They have to be good quality yet cheap. This website looks great if you want to make a group order for your girlies during wedding season. All the dresses are unique and one of a kind. There is absolutely no chance of “being common” which we girls threat about. They have huge collection to pick from and the patterns and cuts are absolutely creative. My favourite amongst the lot is the one with sequence. Check out my picks below :

Where to Shop Beautiful Formal Gown Dresses this Wedding Season? Beformal.com.au

Beformal.com.au

Hello gorgeousness,

I’ve been too busy with the wedding season lately. Always running out of clothes to wear, I have so less when it comes to ethnic and almost nil when it comes to gown and formal dresses. So the other day my bestie asked me where she can find Formal Dress Shops? As she is getting married soon, she wants one or two for a cocktail party and reception. Honestly, I didn’t know any place and I thought being a beauty & fashion blogger it would be a shame if I cannot help her out. C’mon she trusted me to advice her with a good place to shop. So I thought this will be a good opportunity to do a little homework plus it will be helpful for my marriage too. I searched a lot online for plus size formal dresses as she is plus size (No, I am not). It’s a task to find dresses for plus size. After a lot of research work and help from blogger friends, I came across this website called http://www.beformal.com.au/ This website was started in the year 2013 and serves across the world. They have got millions of products and customers who purchases from their range of Formal dresses Australia, wedding gowns, mother of the bride dresses, prom dresses etc.. You would now think that it is going to be expensive to purchase dresses online. I have compared the prices myself and they offer the best dresses in wholesale rate.

The best part is they have dresses for all age, size and occasion. I was shocked to see the plus size formal dresses Australia variety on this website. They have some breathtaking formal dresses and gowns. My friend was puzzled looking at their collection. It was difficult for her to pick just ‘one’. In India, its absolutely difficult to get good plus size formal dresses and gowns for a bride. Usually, the collection is too tacky, too tight or too old-fashioned. The good thing about getting a dress from this website is that they customise the dresses according to your size. Yippie! What a sigh of relief isn’t it? If you are a plus size woman and looking for formal dresses go follow this link http://www.beformal.com.au/list/plus-size-formal-dresses-c113338/

Did you see that? Just imagine the collection at the website for us. They have the latest trends in beautiful shades for us beauties. Its next to impossible to find such gowns in the Indian market. They have all possible colours with good detailing work.  If you’re looking for a dress/gown to ‘rock’ at your friend’s cocktail party. Do follow this link http://www.beformal.com.au/list/formal-dresses-c113329/

So what do you think about the collection? If you have any query regarding the price, shipping etc. Do let me know, I would help you in the best possible manner.

 PR sent but my review is honest, best of my knowledge!
