Review: Sleek Highlighting Palettes

Morning Beauties!

Today I’m doing a review of the cream and powder highlighting palettes from Sleek Cosmetics. I have seen and heard a lot about both of these and i am excited to share my opinions with you!img_1900

Packaging:

The packaging is super sleek and stylish, the powder compact has a reflective gold case with 4 shades inside while the cream compact has a gun metal coloured case and also has 4 shades. Each case comes with an applicator brush to use which is convenient for any one using these palettes on the go or while travelling. There is also a large mirror on the inside of the lid. The exterior is a sturdy case which i feel is good for protecting the product inside  while its in your handbag or makeup case and again for those travelling with the palette.

Product:

Cream – I am not a huge fan of cream anything really as i feel powder is easier to work with, Although these cream highlighters do have a nice colour pay off and seem to be quite long lasting – they dont budge during my 12 hour days which is great! One of the shades in this palette is a powder which is great if you didn’t want to buy the two palettes. There is a nice variety of shades in here including a frosty cream, a pinkish gold, a pale gold and a darker bronze colour. I feel there is a nice range of colours for all skin types to pick from this palette, this would be a great one to add to a makeup artists kit.img_1902

Powder: One thing i love about this highlighting palette is that it is so different to everything else on the market! The colours are not your ordinary gold, pale gold and bronze, Sleek have mixed it up with this one adding a frosty pinkish lavender shade and a coral orange shade – perfect for anyone who doesn’t like to follow mainstream trends and is a unique individual. The colour pay off is great the only thing i don’t really enjoy is there is a lot of glitter in these colours, i prefer a soft shimmer to give a subtle glow. I also feel like the colours are really light once applied so people with tanned or dark skin may find these shades hard to work with as they will give off a frosty colour. This palette again has one cream shade for variety.img_1903img_1906

Overall:

These palettes are super cute and stylish, have plenty of shades for variety so a lot of people can use these and they are really affordable! You can’t really go wrong with it! These palettes would be great for anyone starting out their makeup collection or kit. Have you used these highlighting palettes before? If so, whats your Favourite shade?

Thanks for reading, have a lovely day!

January Favourites

Hey guys! 

Well the first month of 2017 is done and dusted and it went really quickly! I purchased alot of new makeup this month and have spent quite a bit of money, i go in amd out of makeup buying phases and i am deep in one right now! (Lol) lets get started! 

1. The Balm Voyage Palette – The Balm Cosmetics

I have been absolutely loving the pink and orange toned shades from this palette this month, i have worn them nearly every day. These eyeshadows are super smooth and creamy which is good for me because i can get my eye makeup done nice and quick in the morning before work. I also like that this palette has lip & cheek products too! Perfect for travel.
2. Amazonian Clay 12 Hour Full Coverage Foundation – Tarte Cosmetics

This foundation is amazing! It has such good coverage and gives a nice skin like finish while still looking flawless. It has held up well in the heat we have been having here in Aus lately and i rarely need to touch up throughout the day which is a bonus! Seriously cannot put this down at the moment.


3. Shape Tape Concealer – Tarte Cosmetics

 I will be doing a full review on this one so i dont want to talk to much about it but i have used it everyday for the month on January and it has been amazing! 


4. Master Hi-Light Blush in ‘Coral’ – Maybelline

I have been digging the coral shades in all categories this month and blush is definitely no exception! This coral highlighting blush has been ny go to for that natural peach glow. I find i dont need to use a highlighter with this as it does a great job at that too!


5. Princess EDT – Vera Wang

Princess has been my go to scent this month! Its super fresh and long lasting and i cant get enough of it right now! 


Thats all for my January favourites! I have a heap of new reviews coming that i cant wait to shar so stay tuned for those!

December Monthly Favourites

Hey Guys!

Miss me? It’s been a while! I am kicking this month off with my beauty Fave’s from last Month! Check them out below..

img_1853

1. L’Oreal Infallible 24HR Matte Foundation

This foundation will always be one of my favourite items, i wear it every single day as my go-to base for every look! Its light, and it does not have a greasy feeling at all when applied which is great as i already have oily skin! This bad boy is full coverage.

2. Maybelline Fit Me Concealer                                                                                                                           

I have been loving this concealer for hiding my tired, dark circles under the eyes around the busy christmas period. This product has great coverage and is easy to work with. It does slightly crease if not set with a powder but its nothing i can’t handle!

3. Australis Velour Lips Matte Lip Cream in ‘Phenom-penh’

This colour seriously goes with absolutely everything.. clothes and makeup! I chose this most days for the month of December as it was quick, easy and long lasting. The colour compliments my skin tone and eye colour really well (it also makes your teeth look super white which is always a bonus!).

4. Essence Cosmetics Brow kit Duo

This eye brow duo is so so cheap! I picked mine up for $4AU at Priceline and it is just as good as any other high end brand brow powder. I was enjoying the lighter Ash brown shade in this kit last month.

5. MAC Cosmetics Blush in ‘Warm Soul’

One of my all time favourite blush’s is Warm Soul. This colour gives a natural flushed look and works well with many makeup looks, i normally use this blush on most clients i do makeup for.

There you have it, my top picks for December. I hope everyone has kicked off 2017 with a Bang! xx

REVIEW: Nude Dude Palette from The Balm

Good morning everyone!

It is so incredibly hot where i live today.. day #4 of crazy heat wave! So obviously theres no better way to bare the heat then sitting in the aircon doing a review for you guys. I received the Nude Dude Palette for christmas and i believe i have used it enough now to give you a quick review!

IMG_1625.JPG

Firstly i just want to mention how cute this packaging is! I have always been a fan of the packaging the Balm uses. It is very unique and different from most other brands so it really makes them stand out. The Nude Dude palette has 12 eyeshadows and it has a lot of neutral shades. There are 4 matte shades and 8 shimmery shades. My favourite colour would have to be ‘Flirty’.  It is a light purple/mauve shade with gold reflect.IMG_1620.JPG

The Palette also comes with a small double ended brush (i missplaced mine) and a mirror on the lid, which makes this palette great for travel. This palette was purchased from Target in Australia for $49.99AU.

The quality of these shadows are amazing! They are extremely pigmented and they last all day with a good eyeshadow primer. I believe i will get use out of all these colours as they are very easy to wear being mostly natural shades. This palette would be suitable for most people making it perfect for a gift.

Overall i LOVE this palette and highly recommend it to everyone. It is great quality and reasonably priced. Thanks so much for reading, i will leave you now with a couple of close ups of the colours!

Have a beautiful day!
