My Lucky Win from The Strawberry Blonde Blog :-)

Hello everyone,

I generally never win much but last week I hit the jackpot with a pretty fantastic win from Nic who owns Strawberry Blonde Beauty Blog and what I was lucky enough to win was 3 Sleek Palettes and a lip gloss!!

I am really chuffed to bits with these products  they are bang on trend from the new Sleek range colour wise….. modern, trendy and very wearable, I still can’t believe i have won this 🙂

The first palette is called Dancing Till Dusk, it has a contour shade a blush and 4 eye shadows, everything is  multi purpose and highly pigmented , all lovely soft buttery textures and i know i will use these eye shadow shades a lot, brown/taupes and shimmers. The cheek shade is a beautiful rose gold (nars orgasm dupe) with a lovely soft shimmer effect, very flattering on the skin !

The See You at midnight again is such richly pigmented buttery formulas, you barely need to touch them to get colour pay off, there is a stunning vibrant purple eye shadow  in this one that i am really drawn to, a  shimmering plummy toned one, a beautiful gold and a slate blue, a deep peony shade of blush (Nars super orgasm dupe) and a light tan for contouring.

I keep taking them all out of their boxes and admiring then they are just so full of colour and life!

The lip gloss is in shade Maria Maria no22, i wasn’t too sure if i would like this or not as i am not very good with bright colours (I’m getting there) it is multi tonal and it lights my whole face up and makes my skin look even better than it really is (bit under the weather), i have taken to my new lip gloss like a fish to water and can’t wait for an excuse to get out somewhere and get it on ……

Last but i think its my favourite as i was actually going to buy this for myself is The Highlighting Palette in Precious Metals, its just perfect and so subtle if you use it lightly or build it up as you need.!

The packaging on this one is very sleek by design, its a bronze shade and if looks and feels very expensive and its just perfect for the highlighters inside.

A HUGE thank you to Nic i really am delighted with my prize and i shall have hours and hours of fun with it!

Bye for now
