Sleek Sparkle palette swatches & EOTDs

Aww, gorgeous... I had to get this LE palette from Sleek makeup! I bought some palettes from London (my swatches here) but this time I tested their webshop. Delivery time was ok, 2.5 weeks to Finland. I've heard they had a lot of problems with the -50% day... I'm in fact glad I didn't notice that :P Hope you got your orders already!

Sparkle palette is sparkly, surprise. LOL. The colors are SO soft & pigmented, the not sparkly ones (Gold ribbon & Tinsel) seem to be excellent, satiny eyeshadows. I haven't tested Noir yet but it feels like matte, not satiny. All the sparkly colors have quite a lot of glitter in them, so if you don't like glitter, don't buy this palette. When there is glitter, there is also fall out... So add some powder (like silk powder) under you eyes. I like the sparkly ones and those are not difficult to use (at least if you are used to glittery colors).

Minun oli pakko tilata tämä Limited Edition Sparkle-paletti Sleek Makeupilta! Ostin tosiaan muutamia Lontoosta (swatchini löytyvät täältä) mutta tällä kertaa testasin tilaamista suoraan verkkokaupastaan. Toimitus oli ihan kohtuullinen, noin 2,5 viikkoa. Sleekillä oli vähän aikaa sitten -50% päivä ja silloin tilatuista suurin osa taitaa olla vielä "matkalla"... Oikeastaan ihan hyvä, etten huomannut tuota päivää, oli kuulemma katastofaalinen :P

Sparkle paletti on nimensä mukaisesti kimalteleva :) Värit ovat pehmoiset ja erittäin pigmenttiset. Mukana on myös muutama satiini-koostumus (Gold ribbon & Tinsel), ne ovatkin ihanat. Noir taas vaikuttaa enemmän mattaiselta, sitä en tosin ole testannut vielä meikissä. Muissa sävyissä on paljon glitteriä mukana, joten jos sellaiset eivät miellytä, ei kannata tietenkään tätä hankkia. Ja aina kun mukana on glitteriä, sitä tippuu myös poskille... Suosittelenkin suojaamaan silmänaluset esim. silkkipuuterilla. En kuitenkaan koe näitä mitenkään erikoisen hankaliksi käyttää (kuten esim Urban Decayn glitterpommit), tottumista toki alkuun vaativat.





Terrible EOTD but I'll publish it anyway, just to show the colors. I used Tinsel (lid), Starlight (crease) & Festive (middle of the lid, lower lashline).





And a look with gold & green (Mistletoe), these were hard to blend together. I loved both colors but other combo would be better!






The green was so pretty, so I tested it with BFTE Lucky Me too:






Hope you liked the pictures, the palette is lovely :D

  4. This palette didn't tempt me at all at first (meh) but seeing the second look you did (perfect color association, it looks exactly like your eyes) changed my mind. In fact, it's a great palette!

    I only own one Sleek palette (Graphite), the pigmentation is great and the colors really vibrant. But damn. All those fall outs... :P

  6. Hmm, you call that terrible EOTD? Puh-lease! Your EOTDs are always beautiful, so I really don't know what you're saying there.

    The colours in this palette are awesome! Pigmentation is certainly excellent. Anyway, I hope you'll have a fantastic and happy New Year, Nea! :)

  8. I love to see your painted eyes, and I'm still awaiting for the neon swatches :P by the way, the colour "Cranberry" is amazing! Will it be one EOTD soon? I really beg you to make EOTD with the neons in Sleek Acid palette and Cranberry from this one, please! I'm so anxious to see those in your eyes!

    Akuma Kanji: Neon looks are coming, but I think later this spring... I don't feel like using them now :/ The cool winter light & neons might be too much for me. LOL. But I'll try to do looks more quickly :)
