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!

REVIEW: The Body Shop Body Butter

I don’t know about you but moisturising has become part of my night time skincare routine, without it i feel dry and uncomfortable! I have tried so many moisturisers on the market and i have become very particular about which ones i use for certain things. The body shop sell a number of different body moisturiser options but today i will be reviewing the infamous Body Butters. img_1894

The Body Shop is known for its Body Butters, and for good reason! They have a beautiful range of textures and scents to please every body, i picked up Strawberry (one of my all time favourites) and Frosted Berries which is from their Christmas line.

Texture/Consistancy:

These body butters are a heavy cream, when you rub it in you can feel your skin soaking it up and it also last quite a while. I dislike using creams that my skin drinks up and leaves my skin feeling no different to before i applied cream, but that is not the case with the body butter. Your skin is left feeling nourished and silky smooth – just what i need! A little goes a long way with this product so the regular size tub will last you quite a while, i would say 3 months as an average.

Each Body Butter is labelled with a specific skin type for which it would suit, this is just a guide and you can use any of the range but if you are looking for something lighter, go with the body butters for “normal skin” if you are looking for ultimate hydration you should opt for the butters which are for “dry skin”.

Price:

The Body Butters retail for $29.95AU which some people may find a little higher then they would normally pay for a body lotion but the body shop use quality fair trade ingredients which really shine through in their products. I believe it is well worth the price.

Variety:

There is plenty of variety within the body butter range, everyone will find one that they love! A couple of scents include Shea butter, Coconut, Olive, Moringa and many more!

Overall:

I really enjoy using these body butters, they give me the perfect amount of hydration and leave my skin feeling soft and silky. I find using the body butters while i am trying to maintain a fake tan really helps my tan to fade evenly so i can get the most wear out of it which is always a plus! The scents are true to their name and are not over powering. A great product to have or to give as a gift!

Thanks for reading guys, have a beautiful day!
