My sweet friends, how’s life? I’m ok now though I still feel tired. I don’t think that the current weather (it’s freaking cold and stormy outside) supports my convalescence but who cares. Have I already mentioned that Germany celebrates a historic day today? No, it’s not the Day of Goethe and Schiller. Nooo! It’s the Reunification Day. If I lived in Berlin I would join the party but actually I live in the back of beyond.*sigh* No special event, no fireworks. *double sigh* The only good thing about it is that I can show you my latest haul. Are you interested in seeing it? Well, come closer, listen and see! Once upon a time there was little Mylanqolia who wished for a miracle. Influenced by many British blogs and yt-vids she wanted to get her hands on Sleek. Sleek? What the hell is that? It’s a London based cosmetic brand with wonderful products that are only available at African stores or at Superdrugs in the UK. See for more details:
Unfortunately, I don’t live in the UK, so I had to search for alternative ways to buy my first Sleek product. As I’m not a lucky girl I couldn’t expect that one of my friends would travel to the “holy beauty land”. Furthermore, I don’t have any swapper mates over there, which is quite disappointing. Anyways, I needed another plan. An online shop would do great but the shop of the Sleek website is still under construction. The next step was the Google search but it wasn’t successful in the end. Thanks to a fortunate coincidence I discovered the yt-channel by Ateyaaa [smuve complexions] where she mentions an online shop that offers Sleek stuff. After having assured myself that this online shop is reliable or let’s say no fake (I love Google sometimes) I had to order my first Sleek items at
The conditions and prices (for products and shipping) were excellent and Claudine was very nice and patient with me though I asked many annoying questions. Anyways, the delivery of the most-wanted package turned out to be very fast. Unfortunately, two e/s broke but I couldn’t return the palette with the shattered e/s as I touched another e/s with my fat finger. I’m too clumsy sometimes.*blush* But I didn’t despair. I pressed the e/s again (not in a professional way) and all is fine now. 🙂 Onto the shopping list and pics:
- Sleek i-divine Mineral Based e/s palette Chaos 577 [C]
Sleek Ink Pot Eyeliner Gel with Applicator Espresson 496 [E]
Sleek i-divine Mineral Based e/s palette The Original 594 [O]
Sleek i-divine Mineral Based e/s palette Chaos 577: It’s my fave palette so far. The bright colours are highly pigmented and well blendable. Besides, the texture is super soft, matte and long-lasting with a primer. The only e/s I really don’t like is the white one as the colour pay off is lame.
Sleek Ink Pot Eyeliner Gel with Applicator Espresson 496: It’s my second drugstore gel liner (no cream liner) and I like it very much. Though it looks very dry in the small pot its texture is smooth and pigmented. Besides, the small brush is superb! I thought it was shit but hey, it’s THE liner brush! It’s a pity that it’s so small. It could be bigger.
Sleek i-divine Mineral Based e/s palette The Original 594: The e/s looks awesome as they are shimmery and iridescent. Two of them broke and the reason is pretty easy. Violent postmen in the UK and Germany. No, just kidding! 🙂 It’s the texture who makes them fragile because it’s very crumbly. I feared that the fallout would be a mess but fortunately, it was ok. The trick is: Load your brush with a tiny amount because the colours are very rich pigmented except for the gold one.
All in all, I fully understand the hype around Sleek. It’s a superduper hot drugstore brand and I need more of their fab products! By the way, see for more and better reviews:

But don’t worry! My heart still beats for German drugstore brands, as e.g. P2. Do you know that there’s a new LE available? It’s called Stylish Geisha. The Asian inspired themes always lure me and therefore I had to buy two lovely items.
- P2 Stylish Geisha LE cherry blossom e/s 030 Sake
- P2 Stylish Geisha LE tea ceremony eyeliner 020 Green Tea
My first impression on:
- P2 Stylish Geisha LE cherry blossom e/s 030 Sake: The pigmentation of the berry-coloured e/s is ace by all means. Paddy of Innen und Außen [see link bar] compared it to a MAC e/s, which means a nobilization of this cute low-budget e/s. Look at the ornamental pattern, by the way! It’s pure eye candy! 🙂
- P2 Stylish Geisha LE tea ceremony eyeliner 020 Green Tea: Well, though I’m more into gel liners I couldn’t keep myself from buying it. It’s because of the wonderful colour. The pigmentation is ok and the small brush is fine though it’s too small. Why the fuck can’t they add bigger brushes? I’m an adult, not a dwarf (though I might look like one). 🙂 Altogether, the liner is lovely.
It’s no suprise that I had to experiment with my new toys. So I’ve done one eye with some colours. And yes, I was inspired by the cute ornamental pattern of the P2 Sytlish Geisha LE e/s . 🙂
That’s all for now. Thank you for your patience. 😉 Have a fab weekend, lovelies!
