Sleek Makeup Candy Collection Photos & Swatches

The night before I went to buy these, I had a dream:
A cardboard box came in the mail. By mail, I mean it magically appeared inside our front door. The box was quite big, oven-sized. I was ecstatic, because I vividly remember seeing all my teeth. I opened the box, and saw another smaller cardboard box inside it. I opened the smaller box, and saw a long pink box among some bubble-wrapped things. As I dragged the box to the living room, I clicked photos at the same time. In my mind, I was doing unboxing for the blog. I had no idea what I was unboxing, but I kept clicking and walking towards the bright living room. I was about to unwrap everything and find out what's inside the long pink box, then....
I woke up. I woke up! Why? Why do dreams like this always get cut short???
I felt cheated & irritated when I got up. Later that day, I headed to Superdrug and got some Candy to get over the anticlimactic dream.

Sleek Makeup Blush By 3 Sweet Cheeks ~ This is a palette of 3 blushers- a cream blush Cupcake, a matte blush Dolly Mix & a shimmer blush Candy Floss. This is a Hot Seller, because there was only 1 left that day. I got it only because I called Superdrug, and they kept it aside for me (Phew!) All the colors are so deliciously pretty! Take a look at the swatches below....

A fuchsia pink Pout Paint named LOL-Lip-Pop is also part of this collection, but I did not get it.
This collection is Limited Edition.

I know I went overboard with the macaron photos, but I hope they made you candy happy! =)




NEW! Bourjois Color Boost Lip Crayons ~ Photos & Swatches

My favorite brand has jumped on the bandwagon, and has launched its very own lip crayons ~ Color Boost Glossy Finish Lip Crayons.
"A new generation formula that provides a bare lips sensation thanks to its sensory, light and non-sticky texture. With it silk extract formula, Color Boost ensures comfort and hydration for 10 hours. Plus, it has SPF 15 and Waterproof colour!"
Available in 4 shades (left to right in pic above):
  • Orange Punch
  • Fuchsia Libra or Fuchsia Libre or Fuchsia Free (not sure!)
  • Red Sunrise
  • Peach On The Beach  
Swatches ~ Orange Punch, Fuchsia Libra, Red Sunrise, Peach On The Beach

They are all pretty summer shades, but my favorites are Red Sunrise & Peach On The Beach. I bought Peach On The Beach to try out, will let you know how it is.
Yes, they are different from Revlon Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stains. They feel different, and are fragrance-free. Packaging is the same.

Price ~ £7.99 |  Rs.727 (Will probably be priced lower in India.) From Superdrug.

Are you excited about these, or are you're tired of seeing Lip Crayons? =)
