Sleek Matte Me Lip Cream Review

 sleek matte me lip cream review

I haven't tried out many products from Sleek but I read up a few good reviews on their matte lip creams a while ago, so I thought I'd try one out myself. I bought 'Velvet Slipper (1039)' which is a deep plum colour which I think suits every skin tone. 

This lip cream is a very creamy product - a little goes a long way, you don't need a lot of it to smooth across your lips. So you definitely won't need to buy another one for some time as it will last you a while. Matte me lasts for the majority of the day, although it ends up going quite patchy on the inner lips after eating but I don't find it a huge problem. Also, if you don't apply it right, it can dry up patchy too but you'll soon get used to the application. I've never had it flake away on my lips either which is also a huge thumbs up! 
Have you ever tried the lip creams from Sleek?

L'Oréal True Match Concealer Review

l'oreal true match concealer review

I bought L'Oréal's True Match foundation last month and as I loved it so much, shortly after, I bought the True Match concealer. I have the shade 1.N Ivory which is the perfect shade for me and it's not pink undertoned. L'Oréal stocks quite a lot of shades in their True Match range which is amazing. I love the flexible applicator - it makes it so much easier to apply and get right in the inner corners of the eyes. 

I was expecting the formula to be creamy with a little thickness to it like other concealers. However like the True Match foundation, it's a really thin and runny consistency. I usually give it about 30 seconds to 1 minute before blending it out. If I blend it out straight away, for some reason the coverage isn't as good. But, it is a super blendable concealer - which I love.

The concealer doesn't worm its way into my fine lines either which is a huge positive - I suppose giving it a bit of air for up to 1 minute before blending helps with that too. It also doesn't settle in my fine lines throughout the day either. The concealer does fade under my eyes and on blemishes throughout the day which is a bit of a bummer.

I have sensitive eyes anyway but there's something in the formula that makes my eyes sting and water for a good few seconds. I have searched online and have found other beauty bloggers that had the same problem and it could be due to the scent. There are both pros and cons to this concealer. On the whole, I do like this product but it isn't one I'd jump at to buy again.

DIY Christmas Gift Tags

I have always been a really creative person, I love making things. I actually wanted to make my own gift tags last year but with full-time working life, I just couldn't find the time. I was not going to miss out on it this year, so I took a trip to Hobbycraft and oh my lord, there was so much stuff I wanted to buy! As you can imagine, I found everything really cute. 

Most bits and bobs were in packs for around 75p to £1 which is super affordable. I bought the glitter silver and gold and plain brown gift tags from Hobbycraft too - although, the string didn't come with the tags in the packs so I had to buy them separately. They're super easy, quick and fun to make! It also makes gifts that little more special and thoughtful.
