SmashBox Master Class Palette


I AM BACK! And with a vengeance! After taking a long break (over a month.. Eek!), it’s time to get back into the flow of things! I’ve been away since my brothers wedding which had occupied me immensely but I’ve missed blogging SO SO SO much, I promise to never take such a long break again!

To get back into the flow of things, I thought I’d show you a new palette that arrived at my disposal around 3 weeks ago! I had seen this crazy fun-filled palette on a few YouTube channels a while back and so badly wanted it and thought I had missed it because it was limited edition! That was.. Until I saw it on sale at a random shop where it was completely unused! It was meant to be! I then saw on eBay that there were tonnes of these palettes flying around!

What is it? Meet the Smashbox Master Class Palette (1)! There has since been the release of another but these colours seemed to appeal to me more! This palette is full of eyeshadows, blushes and a bronzer! From a range of finishes including ultra pigmented matte, to uber shimmery glitters, it’s really versatile and so compact too!

You can see from the swatches that the pigmentation is superb! As well as that, the powders blend effortlessly and seamlessly. There are no lip products in this palette but I would have loved even 1 lip colour to make it an all- rounder- travel- friendly palette! Other than that I have no regrets! For the price I paid, I practically made money!

The colours are mega versatile and I could use them all year around! What I love is that all the colours are totally ‘me’! I’ve been loving: no eyeliner and just a simple wash of colour over the lid recently.. Just like I loved it last year and this palette makes colour choices simple!

To buy this palette, you’ll have to search on eBay but, there are LOADS available! I don’t want to recommend a certain seller because I don’t want to be responsible for a bad experience (should it happen). However, this palette is limited edition and exclusive to Sephora so if you see it floating around in there, grab it! I really like the second version, too! Happy shopping!

Sleek Candy Collection Make Up


20130611-180915.jpg

If you guys have seen my make up collection post or follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I LOVE SLEEK EYESHADOWS (I have almost all of them!)

So when they came out with a Limited Edition collection, I couldn’t say no!

The collection consists on their usual 12 colour eyeshadow palette in Candy, Blush by 3 in Sweet Cheeks and Pout Paint in LOL-Lip-Pop (clever, ehy?)

The eyeshadow palette consists of 12 eyeshadows ranging in matte, shimmer and pearl finishes! As with all Sleek eyeshadows, the pigmentation and colour range is FANTASTIC! Considering the whole palette comes in at £7.99, even if you only like 1 shade, it’s cheaper to buy this whole palette than a single MAC eyeshadow (even in pan form)!

I love the pink and purple shades and the shimmer colours are just the right intensity. I find that some brands have shimmer eyeshadows which fade in colour and leave an awkward glitter after them but not with Sleek shadows.. They last on your skin for a long time and fade off beautifully. This palette has not failed to impress me.

If I could change anything about this palette, I would have liked to have seen a brown rather than black (perhaps to represent Cola Bottles). Mint Cream and Apple Sour are too similar and there are 3 green toned colours in the palette.. Which they could have swapped with a yellow (to represent banana candy) and because it is limited edition.. How about a pan with 2 colours in it? That would be fantastic too! Just all suggestions for improvement or individuality from other brands!

This Blush by 3 palette is definitely different to what we’re used to because it hosts a cream blush! The colours couldn’t be more vibrant and I love the way they used 3 blushes rather than their individual ones and it costs £9.99 for all three! I love Sleek blushes because of their unique colour range!

The cream is so pigmented and isn’t a Cream to Powder formula so is fantastically dewy and has a glow- like finish on the skin perfect for the summer time! The middle colour in the shade Dolly Mix is my favourite because I love purple shades!

I love Sleek packaging because of its sleek look (oh I see where the name comes from now)! The applicator isn’t something that I’d use for eye makeup but I love using these for nail art!

Sleek are available in Superdrug in the UK and they also have a website where they deliver internationally.
