Seeing RED this Valentine’s Day

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 28 - 2011

Is it just me or are we seeing a bit of a theme emerging? 😉

First up…

Hot.  Hotty Hot Hot.

Blush – Scandalous (£4.29)
Pout Polish – Scandal (£4.29)
NAILED – Geisha’s Seal (£3.89)

Due to be released exclusively to Superdrug on February 14th.

All For Eve and all for a very good cause indeed.

All For Eve have joined forces with London florist OnlyRoses in time for Valentine’s Day.  Above is the “ultimate in red” package.  Priced at £90, it includes a dozen red roses, an award winning lipstick from celebrity make-up artist Daniel Sandler, the Sophy Robson Nail Polish and the clutch bag essential of a Swarovski Crystal Nail File.

Orders are being taken online at allforeve.co.uk and www.only-roses.com from 27th January with 100% of All For Eve’s net profits going directly to The Eve Appeal.

If you haven’t seen or read about this collection 100 times already then you truly are in love and should stop snogging your beau before your lips drop off.  C’mon, the makeup’s this-a-way!

Illamasqua Throb is their nod to the season of lurve and the cheekily-named pieces reflect this.  I picked up the lipstick in Sangers last week and can’t wait to give the true red it’s first outing!

Nail Polish – Load, Scorn, Throb (£13.50)

Lipstick – Sangers (£15.50)

Intense Lipgloss – Succubus (£13.00)

.

Any of those take your fancy?  They’re less maintenance than a fella!

  1. I am in love with the Sleek items. I love red blush and red lips! I’m definitely going to ask The Boy to haul those for me while I’m away.

    I’ve not tried All For Eve but ouchies at that £90 price tag!

  2. MADEIN1985 says:

    Red generally makes me look like I’ve got a rash, but I’m loving the Sleek Pout Polish & Blush!

  3. Belle says:

    Re Sleek… red blush? How do you wear that and not look like the creepy clown from It? Am I missing some beauty secret here?

  4. em x says:

    I NEED them all 😀
    love the look of the pout polish, the blush looks a bit scary though and red polish is always a winner
    never tried Illamasqua but the look yummy

    stop trying to make me spend money :-)

  5. Sarah says:

    i swatched that Sleek blush today, HORRIFIC!

    in-fact its still on my hand and my mum asked where i cut myself, go figure!

    throb looks great though!! xxxx

  6. Jen says:

    How lush is Illamasqua? I love that brand!

  7. Patricia says:

    jesus christ on a red motorbike, how DO you wear that blush???
    Oh and makeup brands giving iffy 5% and 10% of their sales to some good cause? THIS is how you do charity. Kudos to All for Eve for giving 100% of the profits from this campaign!

  8. Laujoyee says:

    It should be noted that the Sleek Valentine’s collection is limited edition – very limited.

  9. Anitacska says:

    I saw the Sleek collection out in my Superdrug, so it’s already launched. 😉 I only tested the Pout Polish, it’s VERY pigmented and so is the blush, but that’s something I wouldn’t use for sure.

  10. Phoebe says:

    The sleek blush looks amazing! It’s so rare to see a really true red blush! xxx

  11. konni says:

    I wouldn’t get away with Sleek’s red blush as I’m super fair, but I’m sure darker skinned folk might do better with it than I.

    I will have to get the Pout Polish. I love Pout Polish, so very excited that there’ll be a red one.

  12. Debbie says:

    Loving Load and Scorn a whole big lot.

  13. beautydiarist says:

    Hmmm I like red, but feel that to pull off a superb red lip look, one needs perfect skin – no check, and be able to do the flicky eyeliner thingy – no check. So am disadvantaged from the start. Am off to sulk, but on the bright side have a new bridge camera to have a play with! Jan x

  14. Julia Arenas says:

    I’m wondering if that pout polish will be like an OCC lip tar…ooo I like the look of that Illamasqua lipstick!

  15. LeanneOCD says:

    I’ve just seen the Sleek stuff in Superdrug on the way home from work. Not sure how to wear red blusher without looking like coco the clown. Hmmm I’ll have to ask Kenneth Soh – he is bound to know… *mooches off to Twitter*

  16. stacie says:

    I want the pout polish and nail polish from Sleek. I guess red is the colour right now. I don’t think it suits me though xoxox

  17. LionLovingTiger says:

    I saw the Sleek collection in Superdrug… the pout polish is lovely but I’m not a big fan of the scent so I passed. I did however pick up the gloss and lipstick from the Illasmasqua and both are absolutely gorgeous with amazing staying power. xxx

  18. Erin says:

    Maybe I will break out of my comfort zone and try a red this Valentine’s Day. On the lips though, no way on the cheeks. They are red enough!

  19. RED is my favorite color, that’s why i’ll say YAY!!! 😀

  20. tass says:

    I swatched the Sleek blush and as lovely as it looks, I don’t get how you would wear it. It’s VERY bright! xx

  21. Claire says:

    The sleek blush looks scary!! I won’t be buying anything red though, my cheeks are already rosy enough. I start to look clownish if I use true reds :(

  22. Cassie says:

    I got the Sleek blush and love it so much! Hot pinks and reds seem to do it for me (Mac’s Blooming Cheek, anyone?). It’s necessary to use a very light hand and blend well but I achieve a really nice flush, as if I’ve just exercised.

    It’s rare to see blushes so intense so I was really excited :D. Seems like I’m one of the few who can get away with wearing it, lol.

  23. Sophie says:

    argh these all look great but i always look an idiot in red but i love it !!! my second favourite colour and its sooo sexy :( but ive tried so many shades of red lipstick and still cant seem to pull it off, maybe it’s because im not use to it, hmm i dont know :( any tips? xxx

  24. Marie says:

    At last! A reason to look forward to valentines day this year, majorly lusting after the Sleek goodies.
