The Berry Christmas Collection from Sleek! Review and swatches

Hi everybody!

When I saw first reviews of The Berry Collection from Sleek I knew I had to buy it! It went on sale on 23 November and I picked it up straight away :) The gift set costs £9.99 but if you have some Superdrug receipt, complete their online survey and you'll get 25% off Sleek products. You can also get it at

What Sleek says: "Sleek MakeUP’s gift to you this party season is the limited edition Berry collection! Get berrylicious this Christmas with this three piece collection featuring rich, sultry berry tones. Add a flush of warmth to your cheeks with Fenberry blush, for the perfect wash of crimson rose. Flattering festive eyes will be yours with, Kohl Pencil in Mossberry, a deep burgundy chunky liner that is easily smudged for a cloud of berry-hued smokiness around the eye. Finally finish the look with True Colour lipstick in Cranberry, a matte mulled wine toned shade that will add a kick of spiciness to your party look!"

Kohl Pencil in Mossberry - the pencil is quite hard but I hope it is only the first top bit and then it will be better. The colour is in my opinion more suitable for lips than eyes but I'll give it a chance :)

True Colour lipstick in Cranberry is very nicely pigmented. it is quite dry but on the other hand it didn't 'bleed' on me and had nice rich matte colour. If it's too dark for you, just lightly dab it on you lips and spread the light colour wwith your finger. I like the colour, it reminds me Estee Lauder in Sarong or Mac Rebel.

Fenberry blush is very nicely pigmented it looks to me like it will be good for contouring or just adding a little colour to my cheeks. I had a little problem to get into the packaging, I had to use my nails to open it which I hate :-/ I have the same problem with Illamasqua packaging.

Swatches L-R: lipstick in Cranberry, Kohl Pencil in Mossberry, Fenberry blush
I find the swatches quite colour accurate in comparison with the pictures above.

  1. Wow, the Lipstick looks amazing!

  2. This collection looks lovely~ Especially the lipstick!

  3. I wasn't sure on this...but the lipstick looks lovely!

  4. I adore Sleek, and the set looks delish! But I think the colours would not suit me :(



  5. Thank you girls, the lipstick is really nice. I will have to use it just lightly because the colour is too strong for me. The whole set is a great value, I already use the blush :) Just don't know how I will use the eyeliner...

  6. The Fenberry blush is a gorgeous color. I have never heard of Sleek until now. Looks like a nice product to try.

  7. Girlie Blogger: It is a gorgeous colour and it is insanely pigmented! Definitely look for a Sleek but I would recommend you to do a swap with UK blogger because I heard their international posting service is not great :-/

  8. I cannot wait for a few bob to order this. How long did it take to arrive?

  9. Ilove the lipstick:)
