Sleek MakeUP Pout Polish

We discovered Sleek MakeUP when it first started to arrive in our Glossybox… we’ve always been impressed with the great value of the products and the Pout Polish is no exception.

Figs & Rouge Coco Rose Lip Balm

We adore the Figs & Rouge packaging… so lovely and giftable. The Coco Rose Lip Balm is a pale pink with plenty of shimmer, so if you like tinted balms you may want to give this a try. Application-wise it’s a bit gloopy for applying with fingers, it smooths on ok with a brush and it’s just very messy straight from the tube! It’s a little slimy and slightly sticky – the overall feel was not like a balm, so it didn’t feel very nourishing. Overall it’s the packaging and colour we liked best – if you’re looking for a gloss this is good, but if you’re wanting a balm we wouldn’t choose this. At £4.95 (from FeelUnique) it’s not a bad price for an everyday gloss. Pin...

Too Faced New Romantic Peacock Palette

When we opened the parcel containing the Too Faced palettes we were so excited! The packaging of all their products is just gorgeous!! The New Romantic Peacock Palette is a fabulous pink with a black peacock silhouette design… inside you’ll find lovely pinks and minky browns. There are three eyeshadows: a shimmery mocha, a raspberry pink and a shimmery mink. I liked them all, but the most wearable, for day and night, is the mink. The raspberry pink is a bit daring on the eyes – be careful not to look like you’ve gone ten rounds with Ricky Hatton! As a blush it’s really good though!! The shadows are easy to apply and blend, they feel very light and silky on the skin. Alongside the three eyeshadows are three lip glosses – I wear them all. There’s a raspberry pink, a neutral beige shimmer and a pale shimmer gloss. The raspberry pink is very versatile – you can wear it sheer or build it up for a wow-factor. The other two are lovely for daily wear. And finally there’s a bronzey blush – if you’re very pale watch out, it can look a bit dirty if you put too much one, so build it up gradually. Overall I was very, very pleased with this – it has become my main daily make-up and I will use all the shades (though maybe not much of the raspberry shadow), which is rare for me with a palette as I often find I don’t use half the shades. The packaging makes this ideal for a gift… I’m sure most girls will be...
