Look forward to a huge-ass entry ; D
A while back I received my package from Yinnie (♥) in London. Along with loads of stuff, she sent me a Sleek MakeUP palette from their i-Divine collection called 'graphite'. I never actually heard about Sleek before, but I check out their website and has now officially fallen in love with especially their eyeshadows.
The palette looks like this. It's a super dark palette with many shades of dark grey and a VERY black eyeshadow. It also has a beautiful purple in there, which is a great contrast to the other bleak colors. Mine sadly came with a broken shadow, but nothing a coin couldn't fix ; D
I honestly had a hard time differencing some of the very dark greys and two of the lighter grey/silvers. They look extremely alike, and I think one would have to really dab it on to ever find out what the difference actually is.. Maybe a microscope can tell, but the swatches definitely cannot. The bottom third on the last photo is SUPER dark though (obviously it's the black), and as you can see, the purple is VERY pigmented and VERY vibrant. I am wholeheartedly loving the purple color. I mixed some of the purple with the broken charcoal color in the crease a while back and it really looks AMAZING when blended together. Just sayin... : P
Anyway, to make a long entry longer, I also wanted to show you the makeup I did on Tanja, when she was here. I'm not quite satisfied with the color payoff. Coastal Scents made a great palette, but I'm missing the vibrance. Also I got the MATTE palette. How come almost all my shadows have a sheer finish? Hmmm.... -__-" Either way.. This is how it turned out:
I'm used to playing with colors for green eyes, but to me, Tanja's are more grey/blueish - maybe with a slight hint of green. Also her lids are rather mono and don't show the look very well. -__-" But she looks beautiful as always (if you ask me anyway). I like the brown/copper color that worked as the definer of her crease, but the bottom color of her lower lash line was just not.. right. I don't know. I'll try some purples and pinks next time, that's for sure : D Maybe even some olive or mint colors.
Btw, I just discovered some cool-ass youtubers lately : D
Sharing the love:
Argh crap.. I found so many and now I can't find them again -_-" god dammit. I'll add more links later on, if I run into their channels again. But yeah, three for you to check out. Go go go : D
And btw.. Shopcraze shipped out my order! Weeee :"D
LaterZ guys ♥
