About Sleek Makeup Dip-It Duo Volumising Mascara And Liquid Eyeliner 24 Karat:
A multi-use product that delivers and we couldn't ask for better value than the Dip-It Duo combination from Sleek. On one end is a mascara that thickens and lengthens lashes and on the other is a long-lasting liquid eyeliner which, when combined, accentuates the eyes for a dramatic look. The dual-ended product defines your eyes and the clever design makes it easy to get the look on-the-go!
The Duo's come in three great colours. Jet black, Sterling Silver for a cool slick effect and 24 Karat for a dramatic gold glimmer.

Directions For Use:
Eyeliner: Pull the liner along the eye so you follow the natural curve of your lash line. Use small connected dashes getting thicker towards the outer corner of the eye.
Mascara: Keep your lashes curled longer by wiggling the brush back and forth at the base of your lashes, and then swiping to the tips.
My Experience With Sleek Makeup Dip-It Duo Volumising Mascara And Liquid Eyeliner 24 Karat:
Packaging: The dip-it duo product comes in a long slender cylindrical tube with double sided ends. On one side is the eyeliner and the other side is the mascara. It has quite a nice packaging for travel purpose and easy to carry around especially when you don't want to carry too many items. Thumbs up for the packaging!
Eyeliner: The shade is a shimmery muted golden shade. The gold shade isn't bright but the shimmer makes it stand out. It is a very beautiful gold that I have come across. The liquid eyeliner has the right consistency which is neither runny nor thick and is accompanied with a slanted felt nib. The felt nib works great when you are in a hurry. The only thing that bothers me is that once the liner dries up (within 2-3 minutes), it becomes very uneven and streaky if multi-swipes are used. Also, it doesn't look neat. The pigmentation is good and single swipe gives you proper color. The liner is not waterproof or smudge proof and easily comes off. Another glitch I experienced was that the gold color affects the upper lashes a lot. It is advisable to apply the mascara afterwards to coat the lashes with black. Honestly speaking, I am not quite impressed with the liner as you can get better ones at this price.
Mascara: The color of the mascara is jet black, in fact it is the blackest black. The formula of the mascara is slightly thick – almost like freshly whipped cream. The wand, though looks regular is very effective as well. The result of the mascara is just mind blowing and as amazing as it can be. It not only gives dramatic volume to your lashes but also lengthens your lashes. With just 2 zig-zag coats (and removing the excess), it almost feels as if I am wearing falsies without overdoing it. You just have to make sure that you swipe the second coat when the first is dry or else you might end up with clumpy lashes. Please note that this mascara isn't forgiving. The mascara is waterproof and even if you cry a river or wash your face, it will stay intact for all day without messing up. The mascara reminds me of the L'Oreal mascara which are equally amazing. For its price, it is definitely a winner.

The mascara is next to perfect but the eyeliner isn't that great. I never knew that the Sleek mascara is so amazing. Girls who all are searching for a good combo liner and mascara must give this a try.
