Sleek Makeup Haul (Finally!!)

Saturday, January 08, 2011

Hi ladies!
My Sleek Makeup order (made during the 50% off sale) has finally arrived!!
As I already expected, the Bad Girl palette has been replaced by the LE Sparkle Palette, but I have to admit that, when I opened it, I was really surprised and pleased by it! After all, I'm glad I found it in my package!


Here's a quick haul of what I've purchased:

Two Blushes: "Pixie Pink" and "Rose Gold"


They're soft and quite pigmented. I prefer Rose Gold and I think it's the perfect dupe for Nars Orgasm! Pixie Pink is a little more on the sheer side, a dupe for this is the Studio Blush "Pink Passion" by ELF, which is more pigmented and less "powdery". Overall, I like these babies!


ONE water based Finishing Powder





I purchased this because I thought it was a "matte" powder to fix foundation. However, I've discovered that it's almost like an highlighter! In fact it's a nude shimmering powder with golden reflections. Although it's gorgeous once applied and blended on the skin, I was expecting something different! I'll probably use it as highlighter...


Translucent Pressed Powder


This powder was another disappointment, because even if I've picked up the LIGHT shade, it's still too dark! This means I'll use it as a contouring powder or as a blush because it's really dark for me! However the texture is really fine and comfortable making it easy to blend!


Nailed Polish in "Royalty"
A gorgeous ruby/burgundy color with micro shimmers. Lovely! And it dries up very fast!! I wish I had bought other shades!

iDivine Palette Original and Sparkle
I'm sure you already know the Original palette: it's lovely! I already own the Storm one so I was expecting pigmentation, great texture and gorgeous shades... and I was right! This palette is lovely!



The Sparkle palette has pleasantly surprised me! As soon as I opened it I was caught by the sparkling colors (of course LOL!) and the intensity of the shades! I'll review it in a specific post because this palette is, in my opinion, underestimated! The colors are very nice and pigmented and the sparkles aren't annoying at all! Well done Sleek! ;)




That's all for now! I'm planning to make a video review (the first one!) on YouTube for these products, to show you each one and what I think about it, as soon as my camcorder arrives, that is to say this Monday, so this means I'll be testing these products during the weekend!

Stay tuned for my reviews then!
Have a great weekend!
Besitoss!!
