Berry Merry Xmas with Sleek Makeup!

Sleek have recently launched this gorgeous box set which is great value for money at just £10 and right on trend with its bold berry shades.

The Berry Collection

The set includes:
Cranberry Lipstick which is a deep vampy matte red shade. 
Fenberry Blush which id describe as a berry plum.
Mossberry Kohl Pencil which is a deep Burgundy shade which can be used on both the eyes and lips.

Swatches from top to bottom: Eyes, Lips & Cheeks

Of course i had to try them out for myself. No Deep red lippy gets past me without a venture onto the lips

The lipstick is a stunning dark red and although its matte i didn't find it drying at all and its not one of those lipsticks that clings and emphasises every tiny line either which is a nice change. I do like matte lips but some are not particularly flattering but I'm pleased to say this one is.

For me the blusher is the stand out product of all three in this box. I am a big fan of the Sleek blushers anyway and this one is a gorgeous colour that seems to warm my complexion up without looking overly flushed or made up. You only need a tiny amount as you do with most of the Sleek blushers.

This would make a lovely stocking filler for a friend or a little pick me up treat for yourself when you are doing the Xmas shopping :)

Are you rocking the deep shades this time of year?


  1. It looks gorgeous on u! Wish we had sleek here n the states.

  2. I have this lippie, it really is gorgeous!
    The blusher is very pretty too :) xx

  3. Holy bejesus, the lipstick looks amazing on you! I'm tempted by this kit, but can't see myself using the blush or eye pencil :/

  4. That's quite a lot of red to wear at once but must say the lipstick is stunning and would suit so many if not all skintones!

  5. Oh, I love that! how does the liner look on the lips? I couldn't carry it off on the eyes, but maybe as a lip colour though...
