Sleek I-Divine Garden of Eden

It is a sad, sad day for makeup when one of your favorite palettes is discontinued. That is what happened with this Sleek eyeshadow palette. Lately, Sleek seems to have been discontinuing many of their I-Divine palettes and out of all of them, I am saddest seeing this one go. Garden of Eden is a…

Sleek I-Divine eyeshadow palette Nordic Skies

Last year Sleek released some new I-Divine eyeshadow palettes. On the Horizon was one of them, but they also did a pastel number: Nordic Skies. This light colored palette features lots of mattes which is quite different for Sleek. So, is the quality as we can expect from Sleek? Sleek I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette Nordic Skies

Sleek palette collection

A makeup brand that used to be very popular for their eyeshadow palettes is Sleek. This affordable UK drugstore brand took the makeup world by storm at the start of my blogging career. However, since then, new players entered the market and Sleek is now all but forgotten. But I still like them and over…

Eyeshadow Palette Tag

Let’s talk eyeshadow palettes! I saw this fun tag making the rounds and I figured I could add my two cents.

Sleek I-Divine On the Horizon eyeshadow palette

So many great fall palettes that are released, so little time. But that doesn’t mean I can keep this beauty away from you!

Drugstore warm toned eyeshadow palettes

Today I am sharing with you 4 of my favorite warm toned eyeshadow palettes available at the drugstore.

Sleek I-Divine palettes: Calm Before the Storm & All Night Long

Sleek has been releasing some new palettes and I picked up two that looked interesting to me. One of them isn’t all that new, but the other is a brand new release from not too long ago. In any case, I haven’t heard much about Sleek’s eyeshadow palette as of late and what’s more, I…

Sleek I-Divine eye shadow palettes

For today’s blog post I decided to change it up a bit. This isn’t necessarily a review, but more like a swatch blog post. Back in the day, I used to buy make up, but I didn’t necessarily take the pictures for placement on my blog. The result? A bunch of awesome products I never…

Most used eyeshadow palettes

As a self-professed eyeshadowjunkie, I find it difficult to pan eyeshadow palettes. I simply have so many that I rotate mine in and out of use all the time. This means that there is not one single palette that gets constant use. So for me to have an eyeshadow palette show actual use, is quite…

Favorite eyeshadows for fall

Saving the best for last! Or at least my favorite category of make up products: eyeshadow. I love a good eyeshadow. It was my first make up love and especially during fall and winter I love to put a little bit more effort into my eye looks. It’s when smokey eyes and deeper and darker…

Top 10 under 10

It seems as if budget brands are getting better and better at making good quality products. I remember when I was a teen and budget brands were a) not in abundance and b) usually C-R-A-P. I remember shelling out the money for a Bourjois eyeshadow when I was 15 (which I still have for memory’s…

FOTD: Time to fall in love

Fall has officially started so it’s time to roll out some seasonal posts. The first one is this fall inspired look.
