2 Looks with the Sleek Acid Palette

I have had so much fun trying this stuff out the last 2 days... I have no doubt I will go to it for my makeup tomorrow morning too. I love these shadows, they are so soft and creamy feeling, and so damn pigmented! I haven't even tried the eye burning neons yet! Me wants more Sleek palettes @_@ I am so loving pressed shadows right now. In the first look I am also wearing NYX lipstick in Georgia (the only good color for me of the 4 I've bought), Twilight I blush by I Touch Roses, Covergirl eyeliner in brown black, and mark Scanda-lash mascara. Revlon ColorStay underye concealer & PhotoReady Translucent Finishing Powder. It's nothing super exciting, but I wanted more toned down makeup than the bright ass melon look I did the other day (the last look from my previous post). I did silver on the ball of my lid, and used the really metallic blue for the inner lid, and the darker blue for the outer lid. It looks like the same blue in the picture, but it's not. I also used silver under my waterline, but only part way. This next one was something I did today, over NYX jumbo pencil in Cottage Cheese as a base. I thought "Oh, those two colors will look nice together", but they look WAY better than I even expected! I kept looking into the mirror at my eyes when I was hanging out with my boyfriend. We watched Are You Afraid of the Dark! This post of Blix's reminded me my DVD set of it has been sitting untouched for quite a while. Oh the nostalgia! I used a Milani Powder Mosaic in Sweet Cheeks, L'Oreal Collegen Mascara, Fyrinnae's Pink Guitar lip lustre, and Too Faced sparkler gloss over that in Violet Vapor. Revlon ColorStay underye concealer & PhotoReady Translucent Finishing Powder. I love this palette! And I love blush now you guys! I never used it before blogging. ;] I haven't done an HKOTD in a while, so here ya go. My big kitty and my little kitty ^_^ That picture understates how huge that Hello Kitty is... exhibit B. I'm sitting. I have a million cute pictures of my kitty. I know there's a lot of cat fans out there, would you be interested in a post of some kitty pictures? Answer honestly cus I don't want to spend time resizing them all if you're gonna be like "Omg get on with the makeup already you crazy cat lady weirdo..." :P Ps Rachel, I ate the chocolate bar today while watching a movie ^_^ So yummy!

  1. Woahh. Both looks are so pretty :) Especially the second one. Dear goodness it is so bright and pinkish purle-ish goodness! I love that kind of color combo. Sleek why are you based in the UK and not the US. PLEASE come to the US!

    That Hello Kitty is.... wow. HUGE. The first picture really does make it look small. Is your cat HUGE or is that just a camera trick there? Hahaha.

  12. Hee hee! I have two kitties so I appreciate kitty pictures! Post 'em! I do videos of my kitties being weird and even hide the camera to secretly video them. Especially my black cat, Maya. She does some things when she thinks she's alone. Like dragging random objects (my bras, clothes, socks, boots that are bigger than she is etc.) around the house while making mama calls. So we get up in the morning to find a bunch of weird things in the hallway. The best thing is she does some major ninja kicks in the hallway. Jumps up in the air, then kicks off of the wall and launches herself down the hallway! We've only managed to catch it on video twice and it is freaking hilarious! She also likes to hide behind my curtains. You don't even know she's there. She'll just jump out through the curtains so the whole curtain moves all at once and it totally scares the crap out of me. I swear she does it on purpose too! If I had known she was this way when we adopted her, she would have been named Ninja!
    The second look is so... *drool* Simply beautiful!

  13. Yay Cadbury's chocolate nom nom nom. I was gonna send you a Cadbury's Creme Egg because they're really exciting, but that would have made the parcel a really funny shape!

    I'm so glad you like the palette. Sleek shadows are so good aren't they?! The pink/purple look is beautiful, especially. I havn't actually tried the silver, but it looks really lovely on you :)

  17. @Ciao: Thank you! There was more pink in the middle irl, it didn't translate to camera as well. My kitty is actually really tiny even though she's full grown, I think the big kitty is just at a weird angle in the picture.

    @Painted Moogle: Thank you so much!

    @Simone: Totally, it's the reason I wanted the palette in the first place :D

    @SilhouetteScreams: Oh please do, I always steal everyone's looks, lol. My DVDs are bootlegged from a company that got shutdown, hahahahaha.

    @Lillian: Thanks! :D

    @Caitlin: Aw, thanks! I love it too, palettes are so handy.

    @KittenMittens: Little kitteh is pissed I used flash, I think. :P Thank you! Are You Afraid of the Dark is totally amazing...

  18. @Janet: Thank you! I will :3

    @Phyrra: thank you :)

    @Julissa: Thanks! I actually used it for a photography assignment once, and I put one of my shirts from a couple years ago on her. It totally fit :P

    @Blix: Who DOESN'T love kitty pictures? Your kitty sounds so cute! My cat always hinds behind the curtains in my room too, I see her tail sticking out and it's so funny. She likes the fabric that suitcases are made out of, she'll sleep on suitcases when we have them out. The other day when I was doing my makeup she sat next to me and stared into the mirror, it was so cute :3 &thank you :D

    @RaeRae: I love the texture of the shadows, they are so smooth and creamy! Thank you :)

    @Hendrix: aw thanks! I will soon, heehee :)

    @Vanilla: thanks, I painted it myself!
