Mini Sleek Haul...

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Hey girlies,

Hope you're all having a lovely Tuesday so far, I have spent my first day of freedom by popping to town and cleaning the flat. How exciting eh.

I popped into Superdrug whilst in town and very much had a little impulse buy around the Sleek counter, I honestly need to stop spending (and eating chocolate) it's getting out of control. I would like to put myself on a ban but it's not going to happen.

Anyways like I mentioned in my nude lipstick post, I had been craving a brighter lip, with it basically being summer and I always get bored really easy so I wanted to try something new. I decided to give some bright colours a whirl, so I purchased Sleek's true colour lipsticks which are currently 2 for £6.00 so for £3.00 a lipstick, it won't matter too much if I don't like it. I decided to opt for the shades Babydoll and Coral Reef.


I also bought the Light contouring kit, I have wanted this ever since it came out but just never got round to purchasing it, so I decided to get it today. I love the contoured cheek look but can never achieve it with my bronzer and I would like the illusion of cheekbones as I have a little round face!





So back to the lipsticks, I came home and basically ripped them out the boxes to try them on, Babydoll is my favourite out of the two. It's a sheen finish and is a baby pink colour. It reminds me of Barry M's baby pink lipstick but not chalky. I really like it and think it's a nice little alternate to my nude lipsticks!

Onto Coral Reef- I'm not sure. It's a bit of a shock going from nude lipstick to a shocking coral- I don't know if it suits me or not but I'm having one of those self- loathing days if you get me. I guess with simple make up, it would look more suited. Let me know what you think though, I'm also in the process of whitening my teeth again so maybe would look a bit better once I've done that!


Coral Reef

Hope you all have a lovely evening, I'm trying to summon the energy to do the 30 day shred!
