Soap & Glory LID STUFF WHAT'S NUDE Review and Swatches

Hey Beauties,

I got this eyeshadow quad which is called "LID STUFF WHAT'S NUDE" 
as a christmas present and since then I used it quite a bit.
You can purchase Soap & Glory products in boots in the UK. 
I think this quad costs about 10 pounds and contains 5 x 1.5g / 0.005 Oz of product.
Three of the four eyeshadows are matte and one has shimmer.
They have a pretty good pigmentation. The shimmery one is more pigmented than the matte ones.
They are easy to apply and also easy to blend.
The colours are really nice for a daytime look but 
you could also wear them for a night out or something like that.
You could probably use the dark brown colour for your eyebrows if you
have dark brown hair.
I like the design. It's simple and nice.
On one of the eyeshadows has Soap & Glory written on it and there is also a little star on it.

I really like this eyeshadow quad. Have you tried it yet?
If so what do you think about it?

China Glaze and O.P.I. Swatches and Review

Hello Beauties,

today I'm showing you three nail polishes from China Glaze and one from O.P.I. which are called "SUZI SAYS DA! (NL R60 O.P.I.), TRAFFIC JAM (992 China Glaze), LOFT-Y AMBITIONS (994 China Glaze) and CONCRETE CATWALK (998 China Glaze).

(The colours.)

(The names.)


 (Concrete Catwalk - no glitter/shimmer) 

(Loft-y Ambitions - with shimmer)

(Traffic Jam - no glitter/no shimmer)

(Suzi Says Da! - no glitter/shimmer)

(Suzi Says Da!)

The swatches look a bit lighter than they normally look. I think that's because of the flash.
The colours actually look like in the bottles in the first picture.

All of them went on really well and smooth.
The consistency of the nail varnishes is amazing. 
I always put on two coats although one thick coat would have probably been enough.
The China Glaze nail polishes were from the Metro Collection (Autumn 2011). 
I don't know if the O.P.I. nail polish was from a certain collection.

I really like the nail polishes.
I hope I could help you.

Sleek True Colour Lipstick Mulberry 788 Review

Hey Beauties,

today I'm going to show you the "True Colour Lipstick" from Sleek in the colour "788 Mulberry" which I purchased in Superdrug.
It is a very dark purple colour without shimmer or glitter. 
The Lipstick contains 3.5 grams (0.12oz) of product and it also says that it contains Vitamin E. 
It has a nice creamy consistency, is pretty easy to apply and stays on for quite a while. 

The packaging is nice and simple.
The design from the lipstick is black and matte and it says 
"Sleek MAKEUP TRUE COLOUR" on it in a shiny finish. 
It also has a shine line in the middle around it. 

I think the lipstick is nice to wear on it's own but it's also a nice colour to make other lipsticks darker.
Of course you have to be more careful with this lipstick (the way it wears off, especially in the middle of the lips) but then I suppose you get that with most of the darker colours.
I can't remember the price but it wasn't overly expensive. 

(This is what the packaging and design looks like.)

(The name.)

(Swatches - Normal swatch on the top and  smudged swatch at the bottom)

(Here you can see the lipstick applied.)

I hope my review helped you. I might buy some different colours.
