Review on Sleek e/s-pallette Chaos (with FOTD)

Finally it was my turn to try out a Sleek palette. I've been wanting to try out some matte e/s's, but it's not easy to find some good ones. And you really can se the difference between matte and shimmery when it comes to the need of good quality. Shimmery e/s's are easy to blend and you can easily get the look you want, but the matte ones are much more work.

This palette comes in a plastic see-through packaging, and for me it looks quite cheap. Don't think I should complain though... It is kind of cheap this palette. (Even here in Norway. Well, it's expensive over here when you just look at the price to compare, but when we in Norway compare with other products...) The cover is black, matte plastic, with Sleek 'written' on the whole lid in piano-black. It looks nice, but I have to get ready for war trying to open it. In other words, it seems like the lid is stuck, but using tuff girl-power... -YOU CAN DO IT! lol...

There are 12 different matte shades inside, and the lid has a mirror all over inside. It's big enough for putting on e/s without being by your make-up-table, and perfect if you have to 'put your face on' on the bus or subway in the morning. The case also contains a dobble-ended applicator, but I really prefer to use a brush.

You see the lovely colour-palette?! I think it's sooo lovely. Don't think I dare using all the colours yet, but today I tried out the white and orange.

I put on my make-up at about ten this morning, and now, eleven houres later the shaddow's just where I put it this morning! It has absolutly fantastic staying-power. Normally I get those nice lines of thick clumpy e/s in the crease after 3-5 houres, so this is... WOW! But to be fair. I've used a e/s-primer underneath.

This is what I've used for todays look...

-No7 Protect&Perfect Daycream
-e.l.f. concealer pen&brush
-BareMinerals foundation (just a littlebit round my t-zone)
-e.l.f. eyelid primer
-Sleek palette Chaos, the white on the whole lid, and the orange in the outer corner and up in the crease.
-e.l.f. waterproof eyelinerpen
-e.l.f. blusher and bronzer (only the bronzer part)
-e.l.f. luscious lipstick (don't remember the colour)

Review on e.l.f. Concealer Pencil & Brush

Yesterday a little brown box was waiting for me when I got home from my excam. Inside I found something I think will be one of my new summerfavourite, the e.l.f. studio Concealer Pencil & Brush in medium. I afraid that the colour if a bit dark for me, but the summer is right around the corner, and I think it will be perfect.

It comes in a black paper box, and on the back you can read: Medicated formula with active Salicylic Acid & Tea Tree Oil heals and clears blemishes. Provides natural looking coverage under or over makeup so blemishes disappear. The actual pencil is matte black as the rest of the Studio-range. In one end you'll find the pencilpart with a clear cap including a pencilsharpener and on the other end a blending brush.

The pencil is quite thick, and easy to hold. When applying I hold the pencil almost like if my hand was behind the pencil. Don't know exactly how to describe... But it made it easy to point the pencil right at the spot, and then I just twisted the pencil. At this point it gives too much of a cover. LOL. Well, you really can see the difference between where you have put on this concealer or not. Now is the time to use the blending brush on the other end of the pencil. And I have to say, It's a really nice thick brush. It's not too soft, but its not too stiff either. Use this in circular motions to blend out the edges form the concealer, and you'll get a soft, naturalcover-up. Me like!

Will I buy it again?! Definatly! Well, there's one thing... Next time I'll get it in one colourtone lighter. Want to try it out?! You'll get it at www.eyeslipsface.co.uk for only £3,50 in the shades fair, light and medium. -It's a bargain!
