Sleek Vintage Romance palette swatches and review





PROS:

>Great pigmentation
> Very blendable
> Affordable
> Colours are very wearable

CONS:
> Not widely available
>Packaging seems fragile.

OVERALL:
I love this sleek palette. I think that it's by far my favourite palette by sleek. It has a lot of wearable colours as well as colours for nights out. The shadows are all really great and have great colour payoff. I would definitely put this on my list of things to check out when abroad. I got mine at Boots in London.

Laneige Power Essential Skin Refiner - Light



PROS:
> Lightweight
> Does not leave residue
> Refreshing
> Smell is nice
> Skin feels smoother after usage

CONS:
> 200 ml bottle comes with a difficult to use bottle. --> If you really like this product, I suggest getting the 400 ml which has a pump (I recently just purchased it)
> A bit pricey and hard to get ahold of

OVERALL:
I love the Laneige brand in general and this has quickly become a staple of mine. If you can get it on the cheap, I would definitely give it a go!

Rimmel Scandal Eyes Waterproof Kohl - Nude - Swatch and Review




PROS:

> Affordable
> Creamy
> Not smudgy
> Medium tone for most skin types
> Easy to get ahold of

CONS:

> A bit too opaque for waterline use
> Colour may not match darker skin tones or fair ones

OVERALL:

This product is an affordable way to open up your eyes by brightening your inner tear duct. I find that it is not as brightening as some of the pricier alternatives (MAC etc) however it will do the trick for some girls with medium complexion. I personally like to use it as a brightening base under some eyeshadows.
