Let’s dance into the review and swatches!

sleek enchanted forest palette swatches and review

I’ve been dying to try Sleek’s palettes since they took the beauty realm by storm.

The Sleek Enchanted Forest palette is a new release, fairytale inspired – oh my! – and each colour is has a name I’m sure many of us can relate to. Inspired by fairytales and enchantment, it’s filled with mauves, dreamy blues and earthy tones. It features a good balance of light and dark shades, shimmers and mattes.

How does this pretty little thing perform? Let’s find out!

Picked up this Maybelline the Colossal Volum’ Express Waterproof Mascara in Denmark. Its name is quite the mouthful. Is it just me, or is the Maybelline mascara selection here wider than usual? Hmmm. The quest for a holy grail mascara is on.

Let’s see how this baby fares!

Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara Review

Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara Review

The Maybelline The Falsies Big Eyes Mascara – a mouthful – seems an extension to our top favourite original The Falsies. A dual-ended mascara that promises to “amplify lashes 360” for “all around lash glam”. Gotta love the marketing fluff XD

It’s a lightweight, quick drying formula which I generally find to hold curl better. Will this be a hit like our original The Falsies? Let’s see!

Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo

Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo

Picked this up from Watsons recently (the ubiquitous Singapore drugstore) in dark brown. It’s a new item from Maybelline. Normally, I wouldn’t think of reviewing a brow item. But hey, I found this useful and wanted to share!

Maybelline Fashion Brow Duo

Don’t mind the low eyeliner wing! It’s a Korean trend that’s all over Asia now. It gives a softer, feminine feel that’s different from the sexy va-va-voom cat-eyes we’re used to ;)

I have naturally not-so-pretty reversed/triangular (what do you call them?) brows. Thin in the front and thick at the arch. I never touch the front of my brows – they’re naturally skinny and sparse. The bane of my existence! Okay, maybe not :P

The duo-ended brow pencil is surprisingly useful! I nearly wrote it off on first glance…
