Sleek and Glamourous

A couple of months ago I took out a subscription to Glamour Magazine, party because I love the magazine (I'm a magazine addict) and because of the Sleek make-up set offered as a subscription gift. The gift landed on my doormat a few days ago, I'd actually completely forgotten about it so it was a lovely surprise to get a jiffy bag full of Sleek goodies.

Here's what I got:



Sunset Palette
Nail polish in Bare
Pout Polish in Pink Cadillac
Blusher in Flamingo
Eye Dust in Breathless

The Sunset Palette is gorgeous. I'm sure you've already seen hundreds of swatches of the shadows so I won't go into too much detail but will just say that the shades are really pretty and wearable. I think these palettes are around £5 so they're amazing value.

I've never tried a Sleek nail polish before so I'm looking forward to giving this one a go - expect a NOTD soon!

I've been planning on buying the Pout Polish for the last month or so, only to find the pink shade sold out in every branch of Superdrug I went into. I love this product, I've used it everyday since I got it. It smells lovely, sweet but not sickly and is far more pigmented than I was expecting. It leaves my lips feeling soft and glowy rather than glossy.

The blusher looks scarily bright in the pan - seriously bright pink! However, when applied lightly its totally wearable and now that my skins paler I'm using pinky blushers more than my bronzers. I like how this is matte as its hard to find matte blushes in drugstore brands. If I want a shimmery highlight then I layer Mac's Dainty blusher on top.

The eye dust looks quite grainy and chalky in the pot but when applied its really smooth and very pigmented. It's also very long lasting - I swatched some on my hand it it wouldn't wash off with soap and water.

The blusher on. Not as scary as it looks.


A quick EOTD with the Sunset palette. I used the 4 shades on the right hand side of the bottom row. I found that the eyeshadows did cause a little bit of shimmery fall-out on my cheeks, next time, I'll apply a bit more shadow base or try applying them with a damp brush.
