Sleek Makeup Rio Rio Limited Edition Eyeshadow Palette

Hello hello hello!

Happy Weekend! Whoop whoop!
What have you all got planned for the weekend? :)

Today's post is just going to be about Sleek Makeup's latest limited edition eyeshadow palette that I picked up at Superdrug last week. 

I was on the train back home from work and I saw Sleek post about their latest limited edition palette that is now on sale. Just noticing the packaging at first glance, I was immediately intrigued :)
When I got to my town I went to Superdrug and checked if it would be in store yet and it was! 

Done some swatches and bought it lol. 

I just couldn't resist that colourful box that the palette came in. I love colourful eyeshadows. Even though I have enough makeup to last me a life time, I still keep on adding to my collection. I may have a teeny tiny problem with buying too much makeup! lol

The packaging of this palette is exactly how their usual palettes are. Very sleek as their name suggests! Their palette's are also sturdy enough to carry around with you and because their packaging is so sleek, it does it give it a bit of a classy look due to their 
plain and simple look. 

I really like Sleek eyeshadows because of their pigmentation. 
Look at all that colour!


Below are swatches of this colourful palette



The colours are so pretty! I cannot wait to play with these colour and come up with some nice and colourful looks. This palette comes with 12 eyeshadows which are a mixture of mattes
 and shimmer eyeshadows. 

At a first glance, this may look like a summer time palette with bright colours for day time wear, but you can easily do different looks with this palette to make it suitable for night time. 

There is a black eyeshadow and a very nice dark blue on the bottom row. On the top row there is also a very pigmented cranberry/maroon colour. These dark colours can be used
 to smoke out any look! 

You also have a nice shimmer white shade on the bottom row which you could use to highlight your brow bone or inner tear ducts. The world can be your oyster with this palette :)

I bought this palette at Superdrug for £7.99.

You can also check Sleek Makeup's website for this palette

But remember, this palette is limited edition. So it's on sale
 while stocks last. 

Get it quick! :)


Hope you enjoyed this post :)

Makeup of The Day!

Sunday, 6 July 2014

Hello beautiful people!

The weekend is almost coming to an end. It just goes too quickly! 
I spent the day in town yesterday with one of my good friends and we did the usual which were; get some Starbucks coffee (our tradition), walk around the shops, makeup shopping and eating some lunch. We then also decided to watch a film at the cinema. 

We needed a minute after watching this film because we were crying!!! lol I was crying more than her because I am a really soppy person. But we did share my packet of Kleenex tissues. The name of the film was A Fault in Our Stars. Too too sad! :( 
There was a guy sitting next to us with his girlfriend and even he was crying.

 My friend also has her own blog and you can check her out over HERE if you want to :)
 She loves her lipstick!

Anyways, back to the topic at hand, I took some photos of how I did my makeup yesterday.

I decided to go for something different this time which was using a different colour eyeshadow on the bottom lashes. I decided to go for purple on the lower lash line for a change! 

For the eyes, I used the shade "Taco" by Sugarpill Cosmetics for the white and the turquoise and purple colours were from my BH Cosmetics Day to Night Palette. 

For highlighting the brow bone I used the eyeshadow Vanilla by MAC.
