Birthday Haul Part 2 (Haute Hijab and Sleek Makeup)

Birthday Haul Part 2 (Haute Hijab and Sleek Makeup)


This is the part 2 of my Birthday Haul which is being posted 2 months after my birthday. I split this haul into two because not all what I ordered online arrived around the same time. In fact my last parcel arrived just last 2 Thursdays ago. I tried to have this post scheduled for last week as I had promised however I was on a 10 day long holiday out of the country and I just couldn’t finish this post before I left and thus failed 😦   Sorry about that especially since I promised to post this up in my last post. Also if you havent read Part 1 of this post, click HERE to read so you’d be redirected to a new tab/page.

If you are all up to date on Part 1, let’s get started on Part 2. Its kinda weird that I am still hung up on my birthday that was 2.5 months ago. Anyways this is the rest of my haul:

Haute Hijab

If anyones looking for dressy, quality wraps and scarfs I would totally recommend to check Haute Hijab out. I am actually very impressed at how good the materials they use are. I havent actually worn any one of them yet but I am sort of planning to write a proper ‘review’ on it. They ship fast, have good customer service and the products are carefully packed.

I got two colors, Tangerine and Peach which I sort of kind of need.

Sleek Makeup Valentine’s Day Gift Set

 No I did not gift myself a valentine’s day gift ( I don’t care much for the day itself) but I haven’t tried any sleek makeup until this so I was quite confused on what to get so the best option was to try a bit of everything. I kind of the color palette used in the valentines gift set so I opted for it.

I have mixed feelings about this one. For $30 I get an eyeshadow palette,highlighting palette, blush, lipstick and a makeup purse. The shipping took long which is always a a bit of a ugh from my point of view but i didnt have to pay much so I cant really complain. I love how carefully packed the products were and despite being on route for soo long they arrived safe and sound.

Anyhow, It comes with a makeup purse, it’s quite spacious despite how it looks. Its made of synthetic black and had gold details that I think are quite cute. It’s great for travel or for use as that emergency makeup bag in your handbag everyday. It’s very light weight too.

The i-divine: Oh so special palette

IMG_0805I really don’t like this one. The colors feel very dry and some don’t even show up on the skin.

A closer look at the colors:

Swatches:

See how the colors ‘Pamper’ and ‘The Mail’ dont really show. :/ However, there are some colors that can be used especially the darker ones for a smoky eye.

True Color Lipstick in Pink Freeze

This lipstick can be bought separately too so I left a link on top for you guys if you are interested.

I really like the color, it’s a fuschia pink with coral undertones therefore making it less bright and the perfect pink. It is quite aptly named. Its matte which I really like but like most of their other product, very dry which I don’t like. Maybe I should mix it with the Nyx lipsticks from my earlier haul to see if they make a perfect matte. 🙂

Swatch:

Blush in Pomegranate

If I had to pick what I liked the most (if not just like) it would be the blush. It does have a bit of the dryness that every product from Sleek seems to have *sigh* but it’s not as bad . The color is quite pigmented and deep. I never use such a dark color as my blush so im not really sure if I would use this as blush or end up using it as an eye shadow.

Highlighting Palette

The packaging is pretty nice (in fact all their packaging is good).

Swatch: Apologies on the bad lighting.

I’ve never used a cream highlighter before ( that too the shiny kind) so I really can’t comment much on this product. Maybe once I have used this palette a couple of times I might review it. 1,2 and 3 have a creamy texture. However the 4th one which is a bronzer powder and I really really like it. I’m actually waiting to use it.

The palette comes with this applicator, which isn’t too bad. It can come quite handy I guess.

 

I’m still pretty jet lagged while I write this post so I really am hoping it didn’t turn out too lousy.

Hope you guys had a good spring break! I just got back from mine and have sooo much hauls and reviews and stuff to share with you gorgeous people!
