Sleek Make-Up Au Naturel Palette Review With Swatches

I know im probably like the last person to do a post about this palette but it honestly took me longer than planned for mw to get my hands on it as every single superdrug i went into didnt seem to have any in stock but luckily i managed to grab the last lonely one to add to this ever growing collection of sleek palettes i have....17 to be exact!! Think im set for eyeshadows for a very long time!!

What Sleek Say: Sleek MakeUP’s Nude collection wraps up your autumn beauty look in one warm, earthy and wearable collection. The Au Naturel i-Divine provides an array of matte and pearlescent eye shadows providing a subtle yet contoured effect for day, that can be built up for a smoky glamorous effect using velvety browns and shimmering fawns. 

L-R... Nougat, Nubuck, Cappuccino, Honeycomb, Toast, Taupe,
Conker, Moss, Bark, Mineral Earth, Regal.
 
This palette contains 8 matte and 4 pearlescent shadows... I must admit i am slightly disappointed with this one as compared to other neutral eyeshadow palettes i own its nothing special and i much prefer Sleeks Storm palette to this one as i find the matte eyeshadows dont show up very well on my skin tone and they were rather chalky so i most probably wont use it much at all but i do quite like 'Taupe' and 'Conker' and 'Mineral earth' so stay put for a look coming soon!

Mac Me Over Mini Haul.

I've not purchased anything from a Mac collection for a while now....mainly because ive been trying to cut back on the amount i spend on make up and nothing has really caught my attention and made me think 'OH I NEED THAT IN MY LIFE!'
Im going through a big Burgundy/Maroon phase fight now...dont know why i jus LOVE it ...anything that colour i just have to have so when looking through what the 'Mac Me Over' collection had to offer as soon as i seen 'Dark Diversion' Fluidline i was very interested!
Since buying it ive not actually properly used it with a full look, i swatched it in store and liked it then once i got it home i swatched it for this post and tested it on myself without any primer/eyeshadow and in all honesty i cant say i was really that impressed...it kinda goes on a bit patchy and needs to be built up using very small strokes for the colour to really stand out.

I didn't plan to buy anything else but as im a big sucker for a nice lipstick i swatched a few while in store and fell in love with 'Oh, Oh, Oh' ...i've been after a deeper reddish coloured lipstick for a while but i dont think i can pull them off too well as they tend to just drain the colour from my face but this is brilliant as its not a very strong colour and the gold shimmer in it adds just a nice amount of highlight!!! 

Both were priced at £13.50 which is a bit more than i've spent on such little make up in a long time but i was in the mood to treat myself!! :)

Mini Shopping Haul #2

Thought id make a quick post on a few new bits of jewellery i picked up whilst on a trip to Primark! I will always pop in once a weak or whenever to see what new inexpensive goodies they have for sale because personally i think you cant beat them for the price..so what if the quality isn't always the most amazing but for a £3 pair if earrings as long as you get a few good wears out of them you cant really complain!! I must admit some of Primarks stuff can bit a bit on the cheap & tacky side but if you have a good eye for these things you can usually find some nice things.   

The suede straps & the stone which has an almost petrol kind of two toned effect on this necklace are what really caught my attention i dont own anything else like it and have yet to wear it but im sure i will do eventually :) 

Now dont you just LOVE that orange...i wore these out on the weekend with peachy/cream one sleeved slightly floral dress and they looked great...Also seen about 3 other people wearing the same earings as me! You know what they say ...great minds and all that! 

Im forever buying braceletes like these and sticking them all in a draw together so i can just grab a random handfull if i ever need to!! :
