Love their blending brushes, small stipple brush works dang good to apply and blend concealer! And my absolutely love brush from them is flat top brush. Seriously they did wow job for the price they sell for!

Sleek Makeup i-Divine Oh So Special Palette

Hey everyone. Another makeup palette i recently got. This particular purchase actually was free from points i had from Swagbucks . For those who doesn't know what Swagbucks is and might interested to join, here is quick explanation. is the Web's premier rewards and loyalty destination. allows web and mobile members to earn virtual currency (called Swag Bucks) for doing what they already do online every day- watching videos, searching the web, playing games, participating in market research and shopping online. Swag Bucks can then be redeemed for valuable rewards, including gift cards to the world's online and offline retailers. 

Click here if you interested to join! Swagbucks program i believe is only available whole around US and Canada. You might wanna check and see if they are work on any other countries by now.  Honestly i got my naked 3 palette for free too because of all points i got from Swagbucks! So yes why not save money for makeup. :)

Anyway into the palette. I heard so many good things about Sleek Makeup. They are based in UK. I checked the website that they do ship internationally. I got mine from Amazon which the seller was Sleek Makeup company and this was sent to my home from UK and took about 10-12 days. When it arrived, i was so excited and none of the shadows get damaged.

Packaging : it's so slim, simple, and elegant. It snap close so tight and secured! Also, It has big size of mirror which is always a big plus for me in makeup application routine.

Texture : soft and buttery but i find it gives bit fallouts during application. So i do my eye makeup first before anything else. But however, the fallouts isn't too bad.

Pigmentation : amazing! The black shade is so intense. Truly dead black! I love when black eyeshadow appears true black cause i like using dark shadows as my eyeliner. Some shades are not as pigmented as others  like bow and boxed. I had to swatched them couple times to get the intensity i desire.

Price : $11.99 ( from Sleek Makeup Website )

My fave shades are glitz, organza, gateau, and noir. They appear on the lid so beautiful and pigmented!

Pros :
  • Majority of shades have great pigmentation
  • Great mixtures of matte and shimmer
  • Wearable colors for everyday 
  • Wearable colors for special occasion 
  • Slim and elegant packaging 
  • With primer, these shadows lasts a long day
  • Price is great for quality
Cons :
  • A bit fall outs during application 
  • Name of each shadows printed in separate clear sheet. 
Which shade is your fave?

Hey everyone! As you know this girl cant refuse any cutest packaging when it comes to makeup and i do realize, it's such a silly excuse to do a makeup purchase. I cant help it :/ And honestly i never really looked into mac stuff before until they released Alluring Aquatic Collection that caught my eyes so much.

So yes from the blush and lipsticks i purchased, they were actually my first Mac stuff i've ever own. Im so excited to try it.

Packaging : it has water drops details which is so special to me.  I find it so unique and never seen anything like that from any makeup items out there in the market. It's sturdy, i feel it has great quality and i can see it's worth my money to pay the whole products.

Longetivity : last a long time. Some lipsticks may need to re-apply after meals.

Extra Dimension Blush "Sea Me , Hear Me" ( $27.50)

  • I really wanted to loving this blush. Look at the swatch on my arm, how gorgeous the color turned out, for some reason, it doesn't show much on my cheeks at all. I usually build up the color by re-applying it like 3-4 times on my cheeks and it gives such beautiful glow that looks so natural and well matched sit above and blended with my bronzer. So don't be afraid applying this blush, it's not so pigmented, it suits for daily basis for no makeup makeup look. 
Bronzing Powder "Refined Golden" ($27.50)
  • I heard many people saying this is looking too orange-ish for a bronzer. For me, it don't really matter as long as it looking good on my skin and i think this bronzer such a hit for me. I love how the bronzer warms up my face. The pigmentation is great for some serious contour and i like that kind of look. It has golden sparkles where i was hesitant to pack it on my face but when i do, gosh i love how my skin looks! It looking so beautiful and i dont really notice bunch of sparkles going on my face. Totally a LOVE for me. 
Cremesheen Lipstick "Mystical" ($17.50)
  • I am so bad describing colors. But ok i wanna try to describe this lipstick. To me, it's like slight red mauve or maybe red plum that gives sheen finish. Days you wanna rocking red lips but dont wanna looking over the top, this has it. It reminds me of typical red you would find in most "rambutans" fruit. When you first apply it, it gives a tiny red pigment but after a while, the colors look more vibrant and im feeling a lady like. And this lipstick smells great!
Frost Lipstick "Pet Me, Please" ($17.50)
  • When i swatched this at store, i had no clue how i would wear this shade. But i still decide to pick this and find out later how to make it work lol. When i had my makeup done, oh it didnt look to weird! It gives strong frost finish but i always layer it up with another lipstick to make myself look not so dead. It works good with tanned skin tone in my opinion. Fair skin, im not so sure. And this lipstick smells great! 
Which one is your fave item from this collection?
