Sparkle!

Look at what we have here..

The limited edition 'SPARKLE' palette for Christmas from Sleek MakeUp.

I got this in the post this morning and was quite excited to unwrap it from the packaging as it looked very delicate. I expected it to be packed full of different shades of white, gray and silver sparkly eye shadows which would have been SO appropriate but was faced with a wide range of colours which wasn't necessarily a bad thing, but my vision was different, I get very imaginative. However, I think this palette is quite special and so I had to share.


They are almost your typical Christmas colours but with a few extras.


All of them apart from 'Noir' (matte), 'Gold Ribbon' and 'Tinsel' (Shimmer) contain chunks of silver glitter which is finely milled. All of the colours are extremely pigmented and wearable despite the glitter but there is some fall out. This palette is mainly suited for night time looks, parties and any other special occasion during the festive season.


My favourites are the 2 purples on the end.


I don't really like 'Gold Ribbon' mixed with these colours, it throws it off for me and I would have preferred a neutral matte shade instead. I really like the concept of these new glitter shades and would love to see a palette which would be a 'Basics' palette that contain matte, shimmer and glitter shades suitable for day and night use.


These kind of remind me of pressed glitter pigments and some of the night series eye shadows that Nars do too.
Overall this palette is a hit and one to check out, just thought I would give you a heads up.

Available on November 24th online and at Superdrug for £5.99.

Have you picked up a Sleek palette lately and will you be picking this up?

Star Light looks really nice.
But do they all have the same kind of silver sparkles or are some with other colour glitter? It would be nice if that Light Star had kind of blue and purple glitter.

@Mercedes - It only has silver sprakles, there's no variation. It would have certainly been nice with purple glitter :) xxx

MsNana_ said...

i love their eyeshadows especially these palettes. i think the texture is quite metalic and its hard to get off when it smudge. but it stays on the lid well. and always look absolutely stunning.
