Review: Sleek Makeup Major Morphosis Eyeshadow Palette

I’ve had this Sleek Major Morphosis eyeshadow palette for a while, I think it was way back in March when I bought it, but it disappeared off the Boots site so I wasn’t sure about posting it. Apparently it’s back and in Christmas offers so thought it’d be a good time to share as it’s got such a range of colours and finishes in it. You can find it for £12.99 on the Sleek website or on the Boots site, though I haven’t seen it in stores it might be available in your local if it’s got a larger Sleek Makeup display.

Most sleep palettes have 12 eyeshadows in them, this one has 18 so some extras, it’s also got a different style front of the plastic palette itself, but still has that big mirror that fills the lid and the nice click closure. It’s got a range of finishes, from mattes to foils and one with a matte base and tiny glitter in it. There’s a few of the shades that have a duochrome that are a nice wash to use with others, I think they’re the ones that give it the Morphosis part of the name.

Review: Makeup Revolution Halloween Rainbow Eyeshadow Palette

When I think of Halloween themed products I tend to think of creepy haunted houses or ones like the eyeball highlighters I did a review of the other day. However, Makeup Revolution also do a limited edition Halloween range that’s more unicorns and rainbows than ghosts and graveyards.

I don’t use many colourful eyeshadows but the slightly grungy look to a few of the colours in the Rainbow Shadow Palette. It’s £10 and has eighteen eyeshadows in it with a mix of duochrome, shimmers, mattes and a couple of metallics that have a foil finish. There’s a few more neutral shimmers in there but I’d say these are definitely mainly bright colours, perfect for a Halloween makeup look. As with all Makeup Revolution products this is cruelty free so hasn’t been tested on animals, this palette is also vegan.

Makeup I’ve used in July

I’m not really sure what to call this, everything I come up with either seems too long or doesn’t fit. It’s sort of a mix of favourites, decluttering and a bit of a look into parts of my collection even I don’t look at very often. After my last declutter, I think it was around March, I decided to start getting out makeup at the beginning of each month and putting it in my dresser to see which products I would actually use rather than thinking I will or things I keep that have seen better days.

This month I haven’t really gone much beyond my standard makeup so it’s just eyeshadow palettes but I’m hoping in the future there will be a bigger range. In this heat trying new things and older products isn’t very fair as everything just melts off my face anyway!

Review: Sleek Makeup Dream a Little Dream i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette

Sleek-Makeup-Dream-a-Little-Dream-eyeshadow-palette-1

I bought three Sleek Makeup eyeshadow palettes recently and have been playing around with them for the last month, this Dream a Little Dream i-Divine palette is one of them. It’s the most recent of the Limited Edition palettes though I’m not sure how limited it will be, some of the ‘limited edition’ ones are there from over a year ago whereas others disappear quickly so if you’re interested in this palette and you can get it then I’d suggest you do it as soon as you can in case it disappears.

As with all Sleek i-Divine palettes it has twelve mineral based eyeshadows in it and cost £8.99 on the Sleek website. I can’t find an official description on what the exact combination for this one is but I’d say all of them are a shimmer of some kind. Six of them I’d call standard shimmers, four obvious duochromes (one of these with glitter in a fairly matte base), a silver foil finish and one that’s a shimmer base with fairly bit glitter particles in it. The colours are so pretty and all cool toned pastels, mainly in the blues, silvers and purples with a green and two cool toned pinks mixed in there.

Review: Primark PS… Get Lippy Metallic Lip Kit in Molten Lava


Until recently the Primark I go to hasn’t had that much of a range of the beauty products that have been seeing everywhere on blogs, so when I went in and they had some colours I liked the look of I got them. They didn’t have a huge range, I think this was one of two metallic lip kits and there were two mattes, but enough to try them out and at £3 each for a set with a lip liner and a liquid lipstick it seemed like a great deal to give them a go.

The colour I’ve got is from the Get Lippy Metallic Collection and is a sort of coppery coral kind of metallic colour called Molten Lava. The liquid lipstick and lip liner are both the same colour, I’m assuming they’re both called Molten Lava as well, and I haven’t seen any of these available separately. Unfortunately Primark don’t sell online so it’s either risk paying over the odds on eBay or a similar site or go into the stores and see what they have in stock.

Review: Makeup Geek Havok Duochrome Eyeshadow

MUGduochromehavocheader

I recently made my first Beauty Bay order and, having read so many great reviews of their eyeshadow pans, I had to get at least one of the Makeup Geek eyeshadows. I fortunately most of the ones I wanted were out of stock but the Havok duochrome eyeshadow was available and, as it’s one of the main ones I wanted I got this. The colour is so pretty and one of the combinations I tend to think if as showing off duochrome the best as it has that almost petrol colours combination of brown and green.

I think it wasn’t long before I made the order that the Makeup Geek range seemed to get a price reduction in the Beauty Bay website so these individual duochrome eyeshadows cost £4.95 each. I think the rest of the range with the different finishes is also this price. They aren’t the cheapest eyeshadows out there and I tend to go for palettes over individual pans but it’s such a pretty colour I thought it’d be a great one as a first eyeshadow from the company.
