I couldn't resist this palette... So much so I used it before I photographed it. But you're not here for product photos, right? So far I especially love the matte dark blue (Midnight Garden) and matte burgundy red/brown (Moors Treasure). There are some really unusual colours in here, and I appreciate the different textures and the broad colour range. Most people know that the cheapness of these makes them a nice little pick me up... they're about £6.50 for twelve shadows. Sometimes I bemoan that I can't get Wet n Wild eyeshadows or the full range of Sally Hansen nail colours (just to pluck two examples out of the air). But then I remember that Sleek is available to me and breathe a sigh of relief (not really, but I'm almost this bad).
I bought this when I bought the bleach for my hair, because I knew it had just been released. As usual, my local Superdrug didn't have the blush - not sure if it sells out fast or if they don't get any stock. They had the tester and that was that :(
I wore this palette for the past two days at work, and for me it's the most versatile of the Sleek palettes I have - Acid, Sunset and Paraguaya (although I have considered all of them at some point or another, and will probably buy more in the future). The one I wish I hadn't passed up was Circus, but I was buying so many higher end shadows at that time, I thought it'd go to waste. (It's better to have loved and lost and all that.)
Now onto the make-up...
Saturday I wore the matte light blue (Summer Breeze) over Illamasqua cream pigment in Bedaub (which kinda turned it very very pale green... next time I'll use Jumbo Pencil in Milk), Bamboo to blend and highlight inner corner (matte cream colour, my first matte cream and very useful!), Midnight Garden in the crease, Sunset (a rich metallic copper) on the lower lash line, over UD 24/7 liner in Baked, and a little of Moors Treasure to darken the outer corner. Thick black liquid liner and mascara finished the look.
Today I used Lotus Flower (a frosty lilac) on the inner corner and lid (over UDPP and a dab of Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy), Aquamarine (a satin - almost matte - teal) in the crease and Kiwi Zest (a metallic lime) on the lower lash line. Black mascara and liner to finish.
Have you bought this palette? Do you want it (sir?! Suits you sir! ... I'm in a silly mood, I'll go now...)
Oooh PS. I have used the No7 SPF 50 facecream a few times now and I think it's really lovely. I'll probably buy another bottle with one of my vouchers, because at £6 it's sooo cheap. It doesn't seem to make my nose oily (which a lot of things do), and I like it very much.
