I can't believe its taken me so long to get photos of all these gorgeous things that i have to show you (a whole WEEK). I've had such a busy time since getting back from London this time last week and, as a result i'm now a little poorly and spent last night being looked after by my mummy (yes, I'm 29yrs old.... HA). However, i already took the photos for this post and i'm going to share my Sleek purchases from last weekend with you all. Sorry it's late haha...
I ended up with quite a few new Sleek items purely because they were at Salon International and its a GREAT place to pick up a BARGAIN!! I did pick up a new palette from Superdrug on my way through to catch the train from Chesterfield but the rest i picked up as a job lot from Salon for £10 and i think thats AMAZING value!!
The two palettes i brought back from the weekend with me were the Storm palette (which i had been meaning to replace for AGES but kept getting wooed away from it in favour of other palettes. I got it, along with 5 other items in my goodie bag from Salon International. Its just a great staple palette for everyday but you can also put together a great smokey look out of it. I love that it has the dark green and grey shades in it as i always feel they are missing out of a lot of other palettes.
The other palette i got was one that i have ummed and ahhhh-ed about getting for a while as i know its not one that i am going to get too much use out of but i just HAD to get it in the end. And that is the Acid palette. I think i may be a teeensy bit too old to pull off a look with this but its not going to stop me from playing with it!! The colours are gorgeous (if not a little RAWR) and i can't wait to start plastering them on and seeing what looks i can get out of it. I did have a little accident with it en route home from London and the blue shade on the top right has shattered a little but its still totally usable.
The next item in my bag of goodies was the Glo Highlight kit for face and body. I haven't got round to trying this out yet and, if it hadn't been included in the price, it probably isn't something i would have bought as i'm more than happy with my MAC Goldstone MSF as my highlight of choice. However, i do like the look of this and look forward to using it.
Next in the bag of tricks was some false lashes. I'm still a bit of a newbie with falsies and i've only just started to figure out how to put them on properly but these Sleek ones look a lot like the Eylure ones with the Invisible band that i loved out of the Cosmo mag a couple of months back so i'm pretty sure i'm going to like these. Can't wait to find an excuse to wear them!
I also got a new Pout Polish in the shade Chocolate Kiss. I love this shade! The Pout Polishes aren't something that SCREAMS at me when i go to the Sleek stand in Superdrug but i do really like this one. Its a rich nude brown shade that leaves my lips lovely and glossy. And that is all.
These brushes were the thing i was most excited about when i picked up this lot. Its just an excellent little 5 piece mini brush set in a cute case. Perfect for travelling around with. They're lovely and soft and seem like REALLY good quality. The eyeshadow brush is getting me very excited because i LOVE the shape of it (its tapered so can be used all over the lid, to blend, or to pack colour into the crease more precisely). You also get a foundation brush, a blush/powder brush, a liner brush and a lip brush. What more do you need? And in such a handy size too. So excited to use these.
Definitely going to be doing some eye looks with the palettes and i can't wait to let you know how i get on with the highlighter too.
What Sleek products have you been loving lately?? What are your favourite looks with the Storm/Acid palettes??
