Blush Pro sent me a palette and a mini brush set to try out. Here’s a little lookie…
The 88 Earth Toned Palette…
And the 7 piece brush set….
I look forward to giving the palette a try.
I have been promising swatches of The Body Shop’s spring palettes for ages and I completely forgot.. better late than never eh! :) It’s probably time for their summer launch at this stage but the Spring palettes are still on sale.
Palette 02 – A La Mode
Shades: Minimalist White, pret-a-pink, futuristic silver and black dress
Eye definer in o1 black and brush (which is good quality!)
Some swatches…. (taken in natural light)
And Palette 01 Boho Beauty
Eye definer in 02 Rich Brown and eye brush
And some swatches… (both taken in natural light – one near the window, one away)
The second palette is great for blue eyes, the shades really make blue pop. Personally, I prefer the A La Mode palette, it’s more fun.The liners are great quality, rich in pigmentation and handy to throw in your make-up bag.
Rather surprisingly, the little brush that accompanies the palettes is excellent.
I recorded a 5 minute make-up tutorial using some of the eyeshadows from the palettes, I will upload it early next week.
What do you think of The Body Shop’s make-up?
A few weeks ago on Twitter I gave out about the fact that Sleek make-up was not available in Ireland. It was mainly their palettes that I was interested in as I have heard so many people rave about them. For those of you that haven’t seen Sleek products, like me, it’s sold in Superdrug in the UK.
A friend of mine on Twitter swept in unexpectedly and offered to do a swap with me. My swap package arrived this morning :)
I love when packages come wrapped so prettily, it made me smile :)
I proceeded to gently unwrap the pretty paper and look what I found…
All four palettes! I am so excited to try them out. I’ll get swatching and get back to you later on.
But that’s not all, I was spoiled a little…
L to R: Sleek Pout Polish, Sleek Kajal Eyeliner, MeMeMe Poppy Tint, Frizz Ease, Gosh Primer
I’d love to know your thoughts on any of these products and any tips for use since I plan to have a lot of fun with them today. I feel a Sleek inspired tutorial coming :)
I am working on another post simultaneously (aren’t I efficient!) so I’ll see you back here at about 11.30 if you can make it :)
Wow, I must be happier than usual today – There is a definite over-use of smiley faces in this post! Have a good morning everyone – if you’re bored pop into my forum and chat with me, it’ll stop me getting bored too haha!
So what do you think of Sleek make-up?
I’m always on the lookout for makeup storage solutions. Enter Z-Palette. I first heard about these on Kandee Johnsons channel, they seemed like a great idea so I have just checked out their website and thought I’d share.
I have quite a few floating eyeshadows. I find I neglect them because they’re not in a palette. This won’t be the case for much longer, all of my eyeshadows will get the attention they deserve.
The Z-Palettes are magnetic with clear lids, genius! I love the idea of being able to see whats inside. They come with stick on magnets for the back of your eyeshadow pans.
I think I might order one and give them a try.They come in different sizes, the large costs $20.
You can find them here or you can buy them in London at Make-up Provisions (thanks to Emma aka Computergirl for telling us)
