I've never disguised my passion for Sleek i-Divine eye shadow palettes, and I'm sure not going to hold back how I feel about their blushes either ♥ I bought these on sale at the end of last year, and once I'd opened them, I put them aside because to be honest, I thought the colours were just a wee bit too bold, even for me! But after wearing some of them this past week, I've realised my initial impression was misplaced - these are just so fabulously fresh and enlivening, I feel kinda dumb that I've had them locked away for all this time...
This first trio is called Flame, and the swatches below are over the top of a thin layer of foundation. The beauty of these pigments is that you can use as little or as much as you like, and if you think you've gone a bit overboard, a gentle buff with a clean kabuki brush will bring the intensity back to where you want it to be, without any unevenness...
Looking at the palette, I thought that the middle matte shade (Bon Fire) would be the boldest, but in fact that honour goes to the slightly shimmery one on the far right (Furnace). Oh what Autumn stunners they are! The first shade is called Molten, and will be perfect when I'm wearing apricot tonings. I paid $7.49 with free shipping, so I'm definitely a happy kat ♥
And here's the other - Pink Sprint. I'm lucky that I have an overall warm colouring, but I'm a bit of a mix of warm and cool as far as skin and eyes are concerned, so I can get away with pinky shades as well as orange. I'm wearing the third pan colour today, and it's ever so flattering...
These pinks are all mattes, which I prefer as I'd rather have the option of adding a little highlighter along the top of my cheekbones rather than have the gleaming happening all over. That middle one is going to be perfect for my magenta and purple looks, which I usually put together at least once a week. I might even try that first shade as an eye shadow - whoa!
From left to right the shade names are Pinktini, Pink Ice and Pink Parfait - don't they sound delicious?
I'm enraptured with these blushes, and will be buying more of these trios - there are 8 combos to choose from, and I have my eye on Sweet Cheeks for my next purchase when it's back in stock. If you're keen, be quick as both of the above palettes are still on sale for half price on their website here ♥
Take care of you,
