Sleek Makeup Blush in Flamingo is a highly enriched and vibrant pink shade from an exceptionally well known brand for any make-up lover which, in my opinion, needs no introduction. This review has been a long time coming and I just saw this in my long stash of drafts and decided to resurrect it from the dead. So, without further ado, here we go:

Flamingo, as the name suggests, is a bright pink colored blush with high pigmentation and thus only requires the tiniest amount of product on the brush. Blushes, in my opinion, should always be built from less to more to the amount you would want. I absolutely love the staying power and definitely each out for this product for when I want a subtle yet highly visible blush look. Given that I am not much of a dark eye person this goes extremely well paired with natural eyes. Even though at first glance the color seems a bit intimidating, it really is blendable so that I don't end up looking like a circus clown.

The thing about Sleek Makeup that I enjoy the most is the packaging. Seems high-end, is really sturdy and matte black which is all win but to sweeten the whole thing is the big bad mirror attached to the product, so travel friendly. It is safe to say I always keep it in my bag. With that, what's not to love?

I hope reading this you'll get going to your beauty stash, take this cult product of yesteryear out and enjoy it again. Sounds like I am advertising, haha, but I just really like it.

What were your other cult blushes over the years and did you enjoy this one? Let me know!

Capri Soap - *PR Sample

2 new Aloe-Nurture Moisturizing bars

Contents of Goody Bag

One fine day, a parcel reached my doorstep. You know those when you wake up and you have a mail waiting for you and you do that little dance of joy? I am sure you all have experienced that sheer excitement. What did it contain? Capri's latest Aloe-Nurture moisturizing soaps!

This all natural soap ensures that no chemicals go onto your skin and only organic ingredients are in play. This moisturizing bar has honey and milk protein in it which helps make you skin silky smooth. I have to say, it really does feel like silky smooth due to the milk proteins in it as it claims, so 10 points for that! Also, what I love about this soap is the smell of it. Before I actually started using it, it was sitting under my desk for a while (after I had pictured it, so one was open), my room smelled amazing. Every time I sat on my laptop or for studying, it refreshed me with the smell of honey in it.

We constantly are using many chemical products on ourselves, quite a few times daily on our skin, so it is a welcome to add something natural in the routine. Capri is focusing with this new launch on the natural beauty factor and really who wouldn't like to be just that? Though personally I do not use soap on my face, so I did not venture into that but did use it on my hands and body to see how it performs. But I think it is  worth trying out for those of you who do so.

The package was just too beautifully wrapped (see pictures on my Instagram)  and also included apart from two soap bar a beautiful soap box, a pack of 10 tealight candles and a SweetTouch nail polish in Yellow.

This product is available in the market at PKR 42.00 plus GST with a net weight of 115g. Here is to confidence of our natural beauty!

Have you tried this product or any other from Capri? Do let me know how you found it to be?

*The product was a PR Sample and part of a care package but in no way did influence the review and is only the honest review of the product. Read full disclosure.
