On Sunday, I also received the latest Sleek eyeshadow palette in Sparkles from Amy who ordered everything online. Thanks Amy for the quick twit-spree!
This is a limited edition palette, and as the name suggests, everything in this palette is sparkly, and all festive for this season. The colors are all very wearable, and the glitters very pretty (they don't fall out like crazy either). I think the lone matte shade might be the black one. In fact, in almost all the Sleek palettes I own, there is always a matte black eyeshadow.
I noticed that only the recent sleek palettes have names for each of the colors, in my older ones, they just come without any individual names for the eyeshadows. This might make it easier for those who want to look for dupes, and can quickly want to identify a certain color.
Decided to do two very impromptu looks with the palette, and also a newbie which Sarah gifted to me last week (among many other goodies!) Thanks to Sarah again!!
The first look, I reached for the colors which I normally would not put on my eyes, like the reddish purples, and that bright pink shade. This is what I ended up with. It is actually quite pretty, though I don't know if I would actually wear it out.
Illamasqua liquid metal in Enrapture --- here, I am using it like a cream colour base for my eyeshadow. It is a very coppery shade, and very pigmented. Not too wet and creamy, and easy to blend out. Because I am doing this for the purpose of playing around and taking some pictures, I am not sure if this will crease on me hours later. Maybe I should leave the eyeshadows on and see if the liquid metal will last a few more hours without creasing.
MAC Bronze seems to be a perfect match for the cream colour, and the colored base intensified the overall payoff of the eyeshadow, giving it a metallic sheen.
That's all, and thanks for looking!
