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…

Hair

I died my hair, again!!♥

Hi beauties. ☼

The other night I was dying my hair & thought ‘why don’t I do a blog post about it’. So here it is, this is me re-dying my hair. I’ve just refreshed my roots, I naturally have dark blonde hair but dye it lighter.

My hair is very thick, as I said I’m naturally dark blonde, my hair is medium length & is in a pretty healthy condition as I like to look after my hair.

If you’d like a post on how I keep my hair healthy then please let me know.

Anyway on with today’s post. The hair dye I have always used is the Garnier Nutrisse Ultra Colour in 10.1 (when I first started dying it lighter I didn’t jump straight into this very light shade so bare that in mind!). I absolutely love this dye, it looks so natural & leaves my hair feeling so nourished, it’s amazing!

image

I only ever used a different dye once, it was a L’Oréal one which I absolutely hated it didn’t do anything to my hair. Complete waste of money!! 

image

image

Here you can see my dark, natural roots showing through. Obviously this was the worst part of my hair so I always start by applying most product in the roots & spread the rest throughout the lengths of my hair.

image

This is everything you get in the dye box. If you’ve never used this dye before there’s instructions, so don’t fear 🙂 To begin you mix the tube of colour to the bottle, shake well & apply to the hair. I apply this thickly to my roots & spread whatever is left through the lengths!

image

It looks pretty gross when it’s on, as you can see above. But it’ll turn out just fine, I promise. Well mine does anyway 😉

image

Once you have waited the allotted amount of time, depending on how you do it. I always leave mine on for 25-30 mins!! You need to wash it out, I usually wash the dye out until I cannot feel it in my hair, you’ll know what I mean. It feels very greasy & claggy!! I then just use the conditioner which comes with the dye to put moisture back into my hair.

Here’s how it turned out. What do you beauties think? Let me know if you have any more questions, I’m always happy to answer them ♥

Thanks for reading beauties, have a fabulous day xo

Lots of Love Natasha ❤
