Haul Series Part 4 – Sleek and Chambor Makeup!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 18th November 2013

Hello everyone!

Today, I am going to be sharing with you a little Sleek haul and some Chambor products that I got recently.

Sleek is a wonderful makeup brand! It is based in UK but you can get it online at http://www.sleekmakeup.com. Shipping charges apply!

Here is what I got from Sleek :

Image

1. Sleek I-Divine Eye Shadow Palette in “Oh So Special”

Image

Sleek’s eye shadows are beautifully pigmented. This is a very easy and girly palette. Each shade is beautifully pigmented!

Image

2. Sleek I-Divine Eye Shadow Palette in “Ultra Mattes V2 Darks”

Image

It is so hard to find great matte eye shadows at drugstore rates. Sleek does the job, and perfectly! I love each and every shade in the palette and you just need a little tap of the brush to achieve great pigmentation!

Each palette contains a black shade which is one of the most pigmented black eye shadows ever! It can be used for creating smoky eyes or lining them.

3. Sleek Blush By 3 Palette in “Pink Sprint”

Image

This palette is a wonderful collection of pink blushes. There is a plum shade that will go well with most fall/winter lipstick shades. A hot pink that gives that Barbie cheeks look and a dusty pink that is great for everyday. I have already reviewed the Lace Palette.

You can also read my review on Sleek’s Pout Paints.

Here is what I got from Chambor :

Image

1. Chambor Silver Shadow Compact in “RR2 Rose Pale” – Rs. 895/-

Image

This is my all time favorite compact. Plus, you also get a refill along with it so yay! 😀

It keeps me matte for much longer than any other compact and also gives some amount of coverage. It can hide minor imperfections and makes the skin look flawless over foundation.

2. Chambor Powder Matte Lipstick in “175 Sugar Pink” – Rs. 595/-

Image

This is the perfect nude for me! I was ecstatic when I found this! It is a coral nude that brightens my face up and does not wash me out!

The powder matte collection is great for people who prefer matte lipsticks.

This is going to be my everyday color.

3. Chambor Powder Matte Lipstick in “176 Pink Flamingo” – Rs. 595/-

Image

This is a Hot Pink! I am thinking it would look perfect with the hot pink blush in the Sleek palette above! 😛

4. Chambor Powder Matte Lipstick in “177 Crimson Red” – Rs. 595/-

Image

This is a very deep rich oxblood. These type of reds are perfect for the winter time. I prefer bold lip colors to be matte. They’re easier to maintain.

4. Chambor Velvette Touch Lip Liner Pencil in “RD 21” – Rs. 395/-

Image

This is a simple red lip pencil that would go with most red lipsticks.

5. Chambor Jewels Metallic Liquid Eyeliner – Free With Purchase

Image

This is a very pigmented black waterproof eyeliner with gold glitter. It would be great for night time looks and parties!

So this is it for my haul.

October Favorites!

By Aishwarya Kaushal, Monday, 4th November 2013

I hope you had a lovely and safe Diwali! 🙂

Where did October go? In fact where did 2013 go? Well, no point getting into that.

I know I have been MIA lately. October has a lot of birthdays and festival preparations! I have been incredibly busy and didn’t have any time to sit and type! Stay tuned for a lot of hauls because that is what I have been doing! 😛 and this is what the festival season is all about!

This is my first favorites post and I did have some items that I wanted to tell you about.

Image

1. Lakme CC Cream

I have extremely oily skin but since the weather is changing, my skin has been acting weird. It is oily on some days and dry on others. So, on those blah days, I turn to this wonderful product. It is neither too drying nor too emollient. It has a perfect natural finish and feels like nothing on the skin. Keep it mind that it doesn’t have a ton of coverage but yes, it is build able. I use my sunscreen and a primer underneath. If you’re dry skinned then you will definitely need some prepping before this. I am wishing other drugstore brands would come out with CC creams too because I haven’t had any success with BB creams!

2. Florelle Wet & Dry Blush – Marmorized

Image

I received this blush in my October Vellvette Bag

This is a beautifully pigmented blush! It is perfect for fall and will go with any dark lipstick. It gives a believable sheen to the cheeks without depositing chunky glitter!

3. Lotus UV Screen Matte Gel

This is my Holy Grail sunscreen and I never step out in the sun without wearing it. I do not use moisturizer when I use this as sunscreens are emollient enough. This product also acts like a primer. It makes the skin appear smoother and makeup adheres better when I wear this. It will not melt off of your face and it doesn’t flash back! It offers SPF 50 and PA+++ protection. What’s not to love?

4. Sleek iDivine Eye Shadow Palette – Storm

Image

I LOVE Sleek products! I really wish they’d come to India. However you can order their stuff online from their website.

This is my go to everyday palette! I take this palette with me even when I travel and I am set in the eye shadow department. The shades are gorgeous, amazingly pigmented, smooth to apply, easy to blend…. And I can go on and on.

5. Sally Hansen Lip Inflation Extreme – Sheer Cherry

Image

This is another product I received in my August Vellvette Bag

I am not much of a lip gloss person. I prefer lipsticks and lip crayon things.

But this is such a beautiful coral pink color that I want to wear it everyday! 😛 ANNDDDD it makes the lips look fuller. It is non sticky, has a brush applcator and I don’t feel like my hair will stick to my lips. So Yay! 😀

6. Faces Eye Liner in Metal Brown

This is a very creamy liner and glides on easily on the upper lash line. It doesn’t tug on the delicate eye area and stays on pretty well! You can also use it on the waterline.

7. Lakme Eyeconic Kajal

It is pigmented and stays on the waterline. It doesn’t give me raccoon eyes and doesn’t irritate them either!

Image

8. Maybelline Color Tattoo

I know this is a hyped product and rightfully so! I have to admit I was using them wrong before and didn’t quite understand the hype around them but now I absolutely love them! You only need to apply the thinnest layer. They’re pigmented and extremely long wearing + waterproof. They’re available in a multitude of colors but since I am most comfortable with neutral eyes I have been using a bronze shade and a gold one a lot during this month!

Image

9. QVS Flat Top Kabuki Brush

I use this brush for everything! Buffing foundation, applying powder, applying blush, blending bronzer! I own two as of now. Flat top brushes are very versatile and can be used for a variety of things! When I am in a hurry this is a god send because I don’t have to find a blush brush and a powder brush and a bronzer brush!

10. Inglot 17TL brush

Angled brushes are also very versatile. They can be used to apply eye liner, fill in the eyebrows, apply concealer around the lips….

I use this one for my brows and it is perfect!

Image

So that is it for my monthly favorites!

I hope you enjoyed reading and found this helpful!
