Sleek Candy Collection Make Up

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.

SHOES.. Of Prey!


20120824-141903.jpg

If you read my previous posts, you’ll know I have an obsession with SHOES!! I was reading daily mail
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-2186436/Steal-Victoria-Pendletons-red-white-blue-shoe-style-180-pair-heels-design-yourself.html

When I saw these shoes, I obviously went mad for them! I went straight on the website and was in awe of their class! They do some amazing shoes!

Wedges £180

The idea behind it is that you get different staple shoes that you can customise! You can choose your own style, colours and textures with any shoe you choose! This is definitely one for those people who can’t find find a pair of shoes to match their outfit.. The solution.. MAKE YOUR OWN! I’m thinking of making a few staple shoe designs in colours I think are terrible to find! E.g. A sexy black pair, a perfect nude and an all rounder to wear with everything!

Heeled Oxfords £210

They also do worldwide shipping, so there’s need to worry about that! Topped with the fact that they do half sizes too, I’m sold!

Sandals £100

The shoes are a bit more pricey.. The oxford heels I have shown cost £210 but if you make your staple designs, you’ll definitely get your wear out of them! I haven’t tried them for comfort just yet as I haven’t purchased a pair but am looking for an occasion where I can create my own pair!
