Hello My Lovelies,
Hope you are all doing well and had a fabulous weekend! I had a super lovely lazy Sunday and made sure to relax as i have a few stressful weeks at University. Other than that the count down to my 21st Birthday has officially begun haha, it is something to look forward to amongst all of the Uni stress.
I was recently sent some beautiful Sleek goodies and i had to share them with you all. As Christmas is just around the corner, these would make such cute gifts and stocking fillers as well as be perfect for any makeup collection. Sleek is a brand i really do love and provide some cult beauty items in my makeup collection - one being the ever so amazing 'Face Form Palette'. Even though i really like the brand i have never tried out one of their famous Eyeshadow Palettes - slap on the wrist i know! After trying out this beautiful palette i can really say that i want to add every single palette to my makeup collection. Also, attention to detail is everything and how beautiful are these little diamonds that came with the package?! I do love diamonds and how they reflect on the 'Celestial' theme. I have a huge diamond room decor so i thought i would include that also :D
Sleek | I-Divine Limited Edition Celestial Palette | £7.99*
As soon as i set my eyes on this beautiful Sleek Limited Edition Celestial Palette i knew it would soon become a favourite of mine. The shades are seriously stunning and they all are perfect for the upcoming party season for Christmas and New Years coming up. I am a sucker for sparkle so this palette is right up my street and i cannot wait to dive in and use it throughout the party season and for some Birthday makeup looks also! All of the shades have amazing colour pay off, are extremely pigmented, sparkly and have great wearing time. There are 12 shades that are pretty true to the pan colour and they all keep within the palettes celestial space theme -
Solar - As soon as i saw Solar i instantly thought it would make a perfect dupe for MAC Cranberry, obviously minus the fast it is packed full of beautiful sparkly flecks of glitter. Its a perfect autumnal shade which is going to be perfect for the autumn / winter time.
Astral Blue - Astral Blue is a really beautiful blue shade which looks like a mix between MAC Nile and Moons Reflection. I have a few blue shades in my collection but i don't really wear them as much so i am looking forward to being more creative and using shades i don't typically use.
Aurora - Instantly this reminds me of my favourite Disney Princess Sleeping Beauty minus the fact the green shade has no reference to her haha. It is a pretty mid toned green.
Galactic - Galactic is a beautiful metallic silver shade which is perfect for the Christmas season.
Earth Shine - They do say that navy is the new black and this beautiful navy based sparkly shade is truly stunning. As this is a little darker than some of the other shades the glitter can really be seen as more striking when swatched and worn on the eye.
Dark Matter - As soon as i saw Dark Matter it instantly reminded me of MAC's Black Tied which is one of my favourite eyeshadows in my MAC palettes. Just like Earth Shine the glitter can be seen more as it is a darker shade. This is the perfect dark smokey eye shade.
Stargaze - Stargaze is such a pretty name for such a pretty eyeshadow. It is a really soft almost slightly pastel lilac shade which i really like. It almost reminds me of a shade Barbie would wear.
Saturn's Ring - Saturn's Ring is almost a more darkened version of Astral Blue except this shade is more duo chrome and has a more purple tone to it. I really love duo chrome shades and this one reflects beautiful shades of purple, pink and blue when it is hit by the light.
Meteoric - This copper shade is perfect for the autumnal season, it is a mix between a red, pink and brown shade which creates a lovely coppery shade. This is a true matte shade and has no glitter in the formulation.
Terrestrial - Just like Meteoric this is another true matte shade without shimmer. This is a soft minty apple shade which has a little less colour pay off that some of the other shades within the palette, however, even thought that is the case never the less it is still a pretty shade. I am still experimenting with this shade but i feel if it was used with MAC's Fix+ it would have a true colour pay off.
Lunar - Lunar is another super pretty name which is keeping in the theme of the palette and it slightly reminds me of Lunar from Harry Potter haha. This is one of my favourite shades in the palette and appears to reflect more light that some of the others. It is a stunning light silvery shade with a slight lilacy undertone. It reminds me ever so slightly of MAC's Smoke n Diamonds except it is a lot lighter.
Eclipse - Eclipse is a soft textured metallic shade which reminds me of a mix between MAC Mulch and MAC Club, both favourite shades of mine. Another duo chrome shade which has a gorgeous green reflective undertones.
Mascara is one of my favourite beauty products as it can really transform your eyes and your whole makeup look. You can really build your lashes to new heights with this Lethal Length mascara. I like to curl my lashes and then apply a few generous couts of this lovely mascara to get my lashes looking long, curled, defines and volumous. The formula is really great and provides a long wearing time that does not smudge throughout the day. I feel the brush is really similar to Benefit They're Real which i really like as they work great on my lashes. I have really been enjoying this mascara and i have been using it on a daily basis ever since i received it. For £6.99 i think it is a great steal and you cannot go wrong.
Hope you all enjoyed this fun Sleek post featuring some great products. I would love to know what you think and what your favourite shades in the palette are? If you would like to get your hands on the new Limited Edition Celestial Palette I believe it is being released on the 6th November in all Boots and Superdrug stores and also online. Like always lovelies, if you have any questions, requests or if you just want a chat you can contact me on my social media or leave me a comment below. I love hearing from you and i make sure to read every single comment...they really make my day!
Lots of Love
