First of all let me start with apologies for the picture heavy post. Over the last few weeks I've been on a shopping kick and ordered a few things from the Sleek website, All Cosmetics Wholesale and also bought another Maybelline Color Tattoo in Tough as Taupe ($11.95) from Priceline. I am completely obsessed with the other Color Tattoos that I have and decided I would pick up another neutral shade from the range. I am yet to wear this as is looks a bit darker and scarier than it does in the pot but I've seen it on other people and it looks gorgeous.

From All Cosmetics Wholesale I couldn't resist adding to my Nars collection with the Angelika/Laguna duo ($34.99) and Sin blush ($26.99). I only received these in the mail today so I haven't worn them yet but from the swatches I LOVE Angelika- it's gorgeous. I'm a little concerned to whether Laguna will be too dark for me but I will hopefully make it work. Angelika is a 'cotton candy light pink with gold and silver sparkle' while the cult favourite Laguna is a light-medium bronzer with a very subtle shimmer. I also picked up Sin which is described as a 'berry with gold shimmer'- definitely my type of colour. It's very similar to MAC's Plum Foolery which I already have but I will use it nonetheless.

I also decided to buy a few things from the Sleek website considering I don't own any Sleek products. I bought the Sleek Blush by 3 palette in Lace ($12.49) which has three colours- Crochet, Guipure and Chantilly. Crochet is a warm matte orange, Guipure is warm pink with gold shimmer and Chantilly is a matte reddish-coral colour. I'm haven't worn these yet either but I've heard great things. From swatching them the pigmentation doesn't seem to be as great as people say and they are quite powdery but I definitely need to try them properly. I also bought the i-Divine palette in Oh So Special ($9.99) which has 12 different shades in a variety of finishes. I won't describe each colour as we'll be here forever but from swatching they have decent pigmentation and also seem a bit powdery.

Have you tried any of these products?

  1. Lovely post. What I love about sin is that it's such a versatile color! It suits every skin tone I feel.
