Products worth the hype #1

Sleek Face Contour Kit, Benefit They're Real Mascara and Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer
Today it's all about three certain products that, in my opinion, are worth all the hype that they get from the Blogging and YouTube world. Before I start I just want to reiterate the fact that what works for me may not work for you and vice versa, everyone's different and that's okay! Here's some products that I bought purely due to the hype that surrounds them and personally think that they live up to their name...

Sleek's 'Face Contour Kit' // (read full review here) Now I hadn't seen a overly massive hype with this product, but a lot of YouTubers that I was watching at the time seemed to really rate this, especially Tara from tarmartales. I was uneducated in the art of 'contouring and highlighting' when I received this for Christmas but after trial and error I've finally got the hang of it. I love how contouring can give you a lot more structure & definition and how highlighting gives you that 'healthy glow' everyone seems to wish for. Buy it here.

Benefit's 'They're Real' Mascara // I was lucky enough to get this gem last October for my birthday and it's undeniably up there with the most talked about mascaras in the beauty world. Promising to give you a false lash effect that looks real, this definitely delivers. Even though the plastic wand may sometime put people off, I think this makes my lashes look great. The only downfall being that it's a bit on the pricier side of mascaras, nevertheless it's a fantastic treat for those special occasions! Buy it here.

Collection's 'Lasting Perfection' Concealer //  I don't need to go into detail about this because we all know that this is definitely the most hyped drugstore concealer to ever grace the planet but it's definitely hyped for a reason. This makes my under-eye bags pretty much non existent and my face almost as clear as a whistle all for around £4. Thank you Collection for making this very cheap and cheerful product, myself and the blogging community salute you! Buy it here.

So which hyped up products lived up to their name for you guys? Or infact, which ones didn't? I'll save my opinion on that for another day! Let me know what you think, thanks for reading!

  5. The collection concealer is defo worth the hype, it's amazing stuff! I really want to try the they're real mascara, but the price tag is a bit off putting. I'm sure I'd love it but not sure my bank balance will ha ha.

  10. I love the Get Real mascara, mine's sadly run out. Seche Vite is another product that for me has massively lived up to the hype x

  26. I don't think they have Collective in America or rather I haven't seen it. That is one thing that's been so hyped that I really want to try! I heard it's similar to Maybelline FIT me concealer, which I have. Do you think so?
