Recently I've managed to pick up a couple of things from blog sales, that I absolutely love! So just thought I'd do a quick post on those to show you. :D




First up is the Kryolan Berlin palette that I got from the blog sale Leanne had. I haven't used this as much as I thought I would but that's down to the fact I keep forgetting I have it. I'm an idiot, I know. ;) All of the colours are really pigmented besides the lightest, which can take a bit of work but can look good as a highlighter.



Secondly is the Sleek Graphite palette that I got from Rose. I'd given up looking up for this as I can't get Sleek anywhere around where I live and I was definetly not paying the ridiculous prices it was on eBay for. I know I'm totally late in saying that these shadows are amazing quality but for a fiver they really are!

I'll probably talk about both palettes more in a separate post. :)

I knew as soon as I got my Graphite palette I'd want to do a FOTD with it but since my skin is looking positively gross right now, I decided on just an EOTD. My skin looks a bit yuck in the photos but I'm not wearing anything besides eye makeup. Do forgive me. ;)




Eyes:
M.A.C Fast Response Eye Cream.
Urban Decay Primer Potion.

Sleek Eyeshadows from the Graphite Palette (LE):



1 (highlight), 2 (all over lid colour), 3 (crease), 4 (outer V). (All LE)
M.A.C Liquid Liner - Boot Black (upper lashline).
M.A.C Pearlglide Eye Liner - Rave (lower lashline). (LE)
YSL Singulier Mascara.

Quite a dramatic look but I do love my dramatic eyes. ;) The crease colour I used actually reminds me so much of the base of colour of M.A.C's Grape/Push The Edge pigments. The base colours look identical, it just doesn't have the pink glitter in it. I am loving the Sleek palette so far though.

What do we think of Sleek palettes/this look? Let me know.

Also, happy March! The last two days have been lovely and Spring-y. Let's all hope it's here to stay. I love being able to go outside whenever I want to take photos as I hate doing them indoors.
