Sleek Oh So Special Palette & Swatches!♥

Hi beauties. ☼ After purchasing my first Sleek Makeup eyeshadow palette I decided to create a swatches post so you can see what shades this palette includes. I also wanted to share with you my love of Sleek & I highly recommend you try the brand if you haven’t (especially their eyeshadows). However, there is one product I cannot get along with (more about this in an upcoming post!!) Anyway, here we go…

Firstly, here’s the packaging for the palette, I love the idea of the loose eyeshadow design on the front, it looks fab! There are also tips on how to apply the eyeshadow on the back of the box. I think this is great, especially if you’re a beginner with makeup 🙂

The packaging for the actual palette is very ‘Sleek’, as the name would suggest. It is a soft plastic, which tends to cling to other makeup & get dirty, but hey-ho, it looks pretty!

Here are the colours in the palette. As you can see there is quite a wide range of colours, which I love, it means I can get a shed load of looks just from this palette 🙂

In the first half of the palette we have pinky purple shades & the other half has more wearable browns & taupes to make the look more wearable or deepen it up for an evening look!

In this palette there are 5 shimmery shades & 7 matte shades. This is great as the darker crease shades are matte, I prefer this as matte shadows are better at giving definition to the eye. Also, the white colour is matte, I love using this as a subtle highlight!

If you’d like to see a look I created with this palette, then go to my previous sleek post here.

Here are the swatches of the top line of eyeshadows…

Sleek Makeup 3 for 2!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

So Sleek Makeup was on 3 for 2 & I couldn’t resist buying a few things 🙂

So to show you which 3 products I bought I have done a makeup look. If you’d like to see how I did this look comment below (I could also do a YouTube video!!)

The first thing I bought was the Luminaire highlighting concealer, from this first impression it’s not what I was hoping for! But I’ll keep you all posted about it 🙂

The second was the ‘oh so special’ I divine palette. This is the most beautiful palette ever!! It has a mix of both glittery colours & matte shades, it is a pinky palette, but is very unique. It is also very pigmented & don’t crease on the lid (even without a primer, on me!!..

image

Last but not least it’s the Matte Me lip cream in Rioja Red. Wow, what can I say these are great. They go on like a cream but dry to a matte making them long lasting. It is also very  pigmented 🙂

As I said, let me know if you want a tutorial on this, either on here or YouTube (or both!). Just let me know below beauties ❤

Have you tried any Sleek Makeup? What do you think of the brand?

Thanks for reading beauties, have a fabulous day xo

Lots of Love Natasha ❤

TAG: I ♥ Drugstore/Cheap Makeup!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

The lovely mammulikes tagged me to do this amazing I ♥ Drugstore/Cheap Makeup TAG 🙂 I cannot wait to share with you guys what drugstore products I love. Most of my makeup collection consists of drugstore/highstreet products so this is going to be difficult!

p.s. I have already done this but it was back in May so lets call this an updated I ♥ Drugstore Makeup TAG! xo

1. What is your favorite drugstore/cheap makeup brand overall?

My favourite drugstore/highstreet makeup would probably have to be either Maybelline or Revlon! I always seem to love a wide range of their products 🙂

2. What are your favorite face, cheek and lip products?

wpid-20140719_190536.jpg

My fave face products are L’Oreal True Match Foundation & the Rimmel Matte BB Cream. They are such great products, if you’d like a review on the Rimmel BB Cream let me know, or checkout my review for the L’Oreal Foundation here.

My fave cheek product from the drugstore has to be my Sleek Blush in Rose Gold. I adore this blush, it looks gorgeous & has a beautiful shimmer to it.

For lips, as you can see, I’ve got a few faves, however they are all from Revlon. I’ve been loving the Colourburst Matte Balm Lipsticks in the shades Audacious & Showy Flamboyante. The next Revlon lippys I love are their Lip Butters in the shades Sweet Tart, Raspberry Pie & Candy Apple 🙂

3. Least favorite product?

wpid-20140719_191010.jpg

After hearing so much hype about the whole colour match service No7 were offering & over the foundation itself, I took the plunge & bought the No7 Stay Perfect Foundation. At first I did quite like it but after using it for a while I started to dislike it more & more. It’s a weird ash-y colour, although it looks alright on the skin it looks weird when applying, it’s pretty sheer & doesn’t have a very good staying power.

4. What is the best makeup bargain?

wpid-20140719_190754-1.jpg

Hands down, MUA! MUA has such amazing products for so cheap. These single eyeshadows are just £1, so are their lippys & they’re fab too. This palette was an astounding £4, their eyeshadows are so pigmented & easy to blend. They almost seem like a luxurious product but for a very affordable price!!

5. What is your favorite underdog product? (Something you love that often gets overlooked?)

wpid-20140719_190838-1.jpg

Sleek in general, but in particular their lipsticks. Sleek (& their lippys) aren’t very talked about here in the beauty community, people have recognised their fab shadows & blushes, but their lippys still remain an underdog product.

6. A drugstore product that is overpriced?

I’d probably have to say the No7 Stay Perfect Foundation (£14.50), again, or the L’Oreal Glam Shine Lipglosses (£7.99). They just aren’t worth the money I paid for them.

7. Show your best drugstore dupe(s)!!

wpid-20140719_191212.jpg

I would say that the Gosh Velvet Touch Primer is a great dupe for Benefit Porefessional, in my eyes it’s better!

Tanya Burr Lipgloss in Afternoon Tea is a pretty good dupe for MAC Creme Cup Lipstick.

Maybelline Gel Liner in Black would be a dupe for MAC’s Gel Liner.

Lastly, Maybelline’s Colour Tattoos are a dupe for MAC’s Paint Pots 😀

8. Drugstore product that isn’t worth the hype?

Rimmel Kate Moss Lipsticks, I don’t have mine anymore as I binned it. It really was rubbish, so drying on the lips & just did not apply smoothly!

I tag…

Thanks for reading, I can’t wait to read everyone else’s TAG post. Also, as I’ve said I’ve previously done this so if you’d like to read my original post, click here.

Lots of Love Natasha ❤
