Sleek Eau La La Liners...






Sleek Eau La La Liners - £4.99 Superdrug

I think I can some up this whole review with this one sentence "I like them but I also hate them". This review is probably going to sound all over the place to be honest.
I love the idea of these pencils, a cheaper version of the illamasqua pencils that you can use all over your body. So you can use them as eyeliners or lip liners etc.
However the packaging is absolutely shocking, the ones in the photos are actually the second lot that I bought. The first ones were all snapped inside. After getting these home too, they are no different. When you pull the lid off the force you have to pull with takes the "Inner" part flying out of the pencil. 
The brown is actually a really nice eyeliner when you can get it to apply properly because the pencil bit has snapped it moves around too much.
The same goes for the other two colours as lip colours. They are nice, a little on the dry side, but to apply them is so much effort it just feels not worth it.
I really wish I hadn't bothered with these to be honest!
Sorry for such a down review - but honesty is best policy.

  2. So many people have said the same, and reported the 'snapped inside' business. Such a shame. I am in love with the lingerie and all the browns. That cocoa is my one of my favourite browns but I had to force myself not to buy it after the bad experience people had. Unfortunately, I had already bought the white before hearing about all this. I have not yet used it but expecting the same thing happening to me. This shambles reminds me (a little bit) of their nude palette to be honest. For me the best promising palette ever and in real life, the top row is totally inusable and the last one hardly better :/ What lovely swatches, though. Argh, it kills me slowly :/ liloo/@tsunimee xx

  3. That brown would have been gorgeous if it actually worked properly! What a shame. You should definitely contact Sleek, maybe they will offer to send you out something else to make up for it!
