REVIEW & EOTD: Sleek Snapshots palette...

Here's another palette I've had in my drawer for so long that I forgot all about it. I'm serious - I looked up the order, and it was in September 2014, which makes this baby neglected and untouched for over 12 months! It's so gorgeous, how is this even possible? Well these last few weeks, I've done a major re-org of my horde of unused goodies - main problem was everything was scattered in various locations throughout the house, and even I didn't know what I had lol. Now I have everything in the one room (blogging HQ), and along the way I found a couple of other treasures that had also slipped my mind, which you'll see in the coming weeks 
Back to this truly divine collection of colourful hues - aren't they just so pretty, and there's a beaut mix of mattes and shimmers. I'm already head over heels in love with Tequila Sunrise & Sunset, and you've probably guessed that Purple Haze & Magenta Madness are right up my alley. Humming Bird is a gorgeous aqua/gold duochrome, and hey, I'll probably hit pan on Green Iguana first 


Another important improvement during these holidays was an addition to my photography lighting set up, so now my swatches actually match the pans - yay! As you can see the pigmentation is fabulous - even that pale matte aqua top left is a beauty, and the magenta is nothing short of astounding 


So here's my first look using the palette - Green Iguana & Purple Haze. Like all Sleek shadows, they're buttery and silky soft, and so easy to blend with just a few strokes of a fluffy brush...


My base was Eye Of Horus Goddess Pencils in Teal Malachite (inner half) and Jewel Amethyst on the outer section. Used Teal Malachite also on my waterline, and Sleek Orbit in the crease...


I'm really quite passionate about this Sleek Snapshots palette - it's awesome value for just under $12, and boy am I glad I found it again! And there'll be heaps more looks to come - I plan on making up for lost time 

Take care of you,

  3. I think it's the EoH base which makes these colours pop even more. This palette looks so much more enticing in your pics than when I was last shopping for Sleek palettes. I've heard rumours that Sleek will be coming to Target (on the beautyheaven forum), but so far, it seems to be just rumours. I'm really crossing my fingers!
