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

Rimmel London Sexy Curves Full Figure Extra Volume Mascara Review

Hello beauties,

IMG_7632
Rimmel London Sexy Curves Full Figure Extra Volume Mascara

Yes I am back to blogging and it feels really great to write again from where I started. You are right..I started from product reviews and here I am writing on a mascara which was on my mind from quite some time. I love wearing wearing make up and I always keep on trying new products. I feel with the booming beauty industry we have lot of products to explore, some brand always leading , some competing and some getting better than the Best! Well, that’s Life! Need is the mother of Invention as they say! So today I present to you one such product which can give tough competition to other mascaras in the market. I love RIMMEL products, I really love this brand from the Stay matte powder to their lipstick and gloss. I tried it all and it never failed me. I have finished almost 8-9 pans of the STAY MATTE powder and its my Holy GRAIL till date.  Coming back to RIMMEL LONDON SEXY CURVES FULL FIGURE EXTRA VOLUME MASCARA… Hushhh! That’s quite a long name to remember! Well… longer the name longer the benefits with this product!

My Experience with Rimmel London Sexy Curves Full Figure Extra Volume Mascara

So here is the story I was really ready to spend on a good mascara. Because, I finished my previous one which was Rimmel Scandal eyes mascara and so I ran to the beauty store to look for a very good infact best one. I assumed Loreal Volume Million Lashes Mascara was one of the best mascara’s in the market. But when I tried it at the beauty centre it didn’t appeal me that much and then I dragged myself to Rimmel Counter again. There I tried this mascara and immediately loved the effects of it. I never knew that my second mascara will also come from Rimmel. But whatever works for you is BEST for you Right? 😉 This mascara is jet black and waterproof, doesn’t smudge, doesn’t clumps, and doesn’t irritate the eyes. It comes out easily with any make up remover. So you don’t have to wrestle with your lashes. The wand is little complicated but that’s ok as far as it does the job well. Like you would see in the picture it helped me in giving a better volume and curved my lashes perfectly. I don’t have long lashes. But I have decent volume and this mascara worked well with my features. All in all I would say it is a great mascara for both daily wear as well as for occasions. The only thing is I don’t get the desired long lashes like I want. But it never said it lengthens the lashes anyway. Also I hate going to the beauty store in Bandra especially to get Rimmel Products. I know you get Rimmel products on Nykaa.com. But they are mostly out of stock. The availability is a huge problem. They used to serve at PARCOS, INFINITY MALL, MALAD, MUMBAI. Unfortunately, Parcos has shut down and again no Rimmel. I wish someone could just go and tell them to come back. Well all in all if you love a good everyday or anyday mascara do try this ladies you won’t regret. It’s a good buy for sure.

PROS

  • Jet black mascara
  • Smudge free
  • Waterproof
  • Doesn’t irritate eyes
  • Comes out easily with any make up remover
  • Gives your lashes that curvy fuller look
  • Good for everyday anyday wear
  • Stylish glossy packaging

 CONS

  • Doesn’t lengthen as required (never claimed though)
  • Availability is a big issue

Rating- 4/5

My Recommendation – I really want you to try this mascara. It’s great for daily wear and party wear both so you get a two in one deal here. I am sure you won’t regret your purchase. Infact, you might just come and hug me for the advice who knows 😛
