So if you’ve been following my blog adventure, you’ll know that I’ve been wanting green eyeshadow palette for a while now. J recently found a really, really old £10 Boots voucher while tidying and said I could have it to expand my make-up collection (isn’t he the best?) I think it was really because he couldn’t be bothered to go and spend it himself, but hey, all the better for me, right? It also turns out that Sleek are having a 2 for £10 at Boots at the moment! Coincidence? I think not!
After reading a review of their Garden of Eden palette by Annie Writes Beauty, I decided I really wanted to have it. Of course, Boots didn’t have it; in fact, they didn’t have much Sleek make-up at all, which was really disappointing.
The only palette they had which I didn’t already own was the Original palette which includes TWO GREENS! That pretty much sold me to be honest. I also loved the London names for their colours; Black Cab, Cream Tea and Banksy!
I bought that, along with their Brow Kit (Light). I can’t wait to try it out and see if it creates a more natural look than the pencil I use at the moment! It looks fairly easy to use and comes with two little brushes and a pair of mini tweezers.
The palette is £7.99 and the brow kit is £8.49 – Which would have been £16.48, but it was only £10 on their 2 for £10 offer! (Which was actually free for me, because I used J’s voucher.)
I then popped to Superdrug to see if they had any different Sleek palettes but they didn’t. I did however, pick up the MUA anti-bleed lip liner which I read about on another blog (apologies, but I can’t remember whose blog it was. 🙁 ) It’s a clear lip liner, which is awesome because I’d be crap at working out which lip liners are similar to the only two lipsticks I actually own! It was also £1. Yes, one whole English pound! What a fantastic price! It even comes with it’s own sharpener in the lid.
I also picked up one of their £1 eyeliners in Berry Wine. It’s so autumnal and rich, I can’t wait to try it out properly. I feel I’m weirdly on trend this year, which has never happened before, except by accident!
I then wanted to check out Tanya Burr’s make-up collection, but I couldn’t find it so I had to ask an assistant to help me. There were so many pre-teens in the store, I got weirdly embarrassed and pretended I was buying a present for an 11 year old niece that I don’t actually have! (My nieces are actually 28, 23 and 6) I’m such an idiot 😀 I ended up getting a bottle of nail varnish in Duvet Day (as all the eyeshadows were broken or had been used, grim!)
I can’t wait to try all these out and will be putting up reviews in the very near future 🙂 Do you own any of these products or have been dying to try them? Have any of you ever been too embarrassed to ask for certain products or brands from places? I’d love to know! x
