It’s fall LE & palette have fall colors.

Palette is in my eyes sectioned in 3 parts. Four shades in fall colors, next 4 are neutral/skin-toned colors that can be used for contouring & next 4 are orange-red-pink colors that can be blushes..at least 2 can be cuz they have matte finnish.

2. JAMES BROWN — Brown color with shimmer.
3. ROBERTA BLACK — matte black, smoky black..not so powerful black, it’s toned down.

Sleek Glory Palette

Some posts ago I wrote about Sleek collection inspired by Olympic games. Today I got it!! Super cute!! I order it at Moja Drogerija. It’s inspired by Olympic games but colors are named after Tube line. I never been in England or London, so this is what I read. Lot of girls describe that colors are also connected with line colors. Well it might be but I don’t agree with this. It’s inspired by Olympic Games so colors are connected with Olympic Games not by some train that is in UK! I’m fan of Olympic Games (Summer & Winter edition) so you won’t convince me that it’s not like I say =p

So my explanation of colors is like that (only grey & red are matte, others are with shimmer):

FIRST ROW – Natural colors

TUBE –> Light gold or light champagne color. Even thou in palette don’t look like gold, I saw on my hand that it looks like gold more than color next to it. Have strong gold shimmer that makes it like Gold medal. Hope Slovenia will get some \o/

OVERGROUND –> This color is like mix of gold and bronze in palette but on hand looks like beige. It’s like 2012 Olympics torch.

BAKERLOO –> Bronze color. On skin looks more like brown. It’s for Bronze medal.

JUBILEE –> Silver color for Silver medal.

PLATFORM –> Matte grey color. Hmm I don’t know what in Olympics could be gray. Maybe buildings and gray fog in London.

NORTHERN –> Black with blue shimmer. Sad that blue it’s not so visible on skin 😦 but it’s better than usual matte black that Sleek puts into their paletts. One of 5 Olympic rings is in black. On one of the versions black represents Africa.
Olympic rings were designed by Baron Pierre de Coubertin in 1912. Colors blue, yellow, black, green, and red were chosen cuz in every flag in the world is at least one of this colors. Later they came up with theory that colors represent each continent. Even thou this version might not be true, I like it =) So black is for Africa.

SECOND ROW – Bright colors

DISTRICT –> Green color. Color of Olympic ring for Oceania.

HAMMERSMITH AND CITY –> Pink color. Logo for Paralympics is in Pink.

PICADILLY –> Dark blue. Color of Olympic ring for Europe.

CIRCLE –> Really bright yellow. Color of Olympic ring for Asia.

VICTORIA –> Bright sky blue. Olympic Logo for London 2012 exist in different colors. One version is in this kind of blue.

CENTRAL –> Matte red. Color of Olympic ring for America.

I didn’t use this palette yet but I do have some ideas for make up.
I can’t wait for Olympics to start \o/ As I said I’m a fan =) You can read more about it here –> London2012

If you have Twitter you can help Slovenian Paralympic team. Some Slovenian company’s will give 1€ for every twitt that will have tag #oi2012si Goal is to twitt 10000 so they’ll give them 10000€. OI stands for “Olimpijske igre”, that is Olympic Games in Slovene. SI stands for internet code for Slovenia, like is “.com”, “se” for Sweden, “br” for Brasil. You can see number of twitts here –> #oi2012si

Sleek The Limited Edition 2012 Collection

Just saw blog post about Sleek new collection. It’s about Olympic games. This year they are in London. In collection will be new palette, blush and Pout polish. Colors in palette are awesome. Collection will come out on 4th July. Hope it will come till 27.7.2012 to Slovenia. That’s the day when Olympics start and would be awesome to watch them with this colors on =) I’m huge fan of Olympic games, summer and winter edition. That’s the only time I watch all sports xD And cheer as much as possible for Slovenians \o/

Sleek Glory palette, Blush in “Honor”, Pout Polish in “Pride”

You can see how palette looks and swatches here –> The Sunday Girl

In first row I see gold, silver and bronze..colors of medals. Then there is black as in almost all Sleek palettes, just this time is with shimmer. They added matte grey and silver-gold color.

In second row are 5 shimmers and one matte red. Green,blue,yellow,red and black are colors of olympic rings. They put one darker and one lighter blue. There’s also one darker shimmery pink. I would like if red would also be shimmer. Have some matte reds in other palettes and don’t use it, but shimmer red I guess I would =)

Blush is in bronze color ( at least I read so). These are Summer Olympic games, so you can make nice natural summer look with it.
Pout polish is also in more natural color. On photo looks darker that the one from Au Naturel collection. I guess it’s also bronze natural color.

All in all I like this collection! My favourite is palette =) Blush I don’t use and lipglosses/lip pouts in natural color I already have. I’m in stage when I prefer bright lips.
My favourite colors in palette are colors of medals, green and pink.
I see that palette have all colors that we have in our flag..White (silver-gold in this case), blue,red and yellow ( stars in coat of arms). So I could do flag inspired look o/

New Sleek Products

Brand Sleek will launch new Palettes on 9.5.2012 \o/ And they already have new colorful eyeliners (y)
Palettes are all matte. I don’t like matte eyeshadows, all that I tried so far were in bad quality :/ I know Sleek have good eyeshadows and that’s why I’m really looking forward to try them. I like matte look on others, specially with white eyeshadow but u need good eyeshadows to make it 🙂
Eyeliners are in 20 different colors. They are smudge proof. On their page they cost 4,79€..will see how much it will be in Slovenian shop jajajaj

Photo from Diary Directory

First one is Sleek Ultra Matte i-Divine V2 Darks Have darker shades.
Second one is Sleek Ultra Matte i-Divine V1 Brights Have brighter shades. I’m guessing pink & yellow will be neon.
I prefer Brights palette even thou I like 6 eyeshadows in Darks palette… Can I buy half of the palette? xDD

Sleek PPQ Me, myself and eye

Today I got my new Sleek palette. It’s LE & u can order it on Sleek web site. In Slovenia we can buy it only on Moja Drogerija I have to congrats to the owner of this web shop! Palette was made with London fashion house PPQ and was everywhere promoted as accessable only on Sleek web page. She manage to convinced them to alow her to sell it on her web shop.

Palette have 12 colors (as all of their palettes), 6 of them are matte others are pearl. As all of their new palettes they have cute names \o/

1. BARRY WHITE its pearly white
2. BACK BOX it’s matte black that u can find in almost every Sleek palette =)
3. SALT ‘N’ PEPPERMINT matte mint color with small glitters that u can see only in palette :/
4. FADE TO GREY silver pearls color that is one of my favourites from this palette, will be perfect for New Year.
5. BLUE MONDAY pearls color. They named it blue but to me this is black with a lot of dark green and blue glitters. In palette looks like dark forest green but in swatch u see that have black base color.
6. SUPERNOVA it’s matte taupe. Another of my favourites \o/ Looks the same as taupe nail polishes =)

Swatches of first 6 colors:

7. SIMPLY RED as name says it’s simply matte red 🙂 It’s great, one day I would like to have pearl red, matte is not so much for me.
8. PINK SORBET it’s matte light coral with pink under tone. In palette to me looks like light coral but on eyes pink comes out.
9. PRIMAL GREEN pearl color. It’s aged olive-green. Reminds me on old paintings. One of my favourites also.
10. CHRIS DE BURGUNDY it’s matte burgundy red. Color that it’s now IN for lips. Lovely color that I love on lips but don’t know how will work on eyes. I’m afraid of “omg are u sick/ill?” look xD
11. LILAC ALLEN it’s light lila pearl color. Good for winter and spring.
12. GOLDEN SILVER it’s gold pearl color. I expected more gold.

All colors are well pigmented ( well for me gold could be lil bit more) The more I watch this palette more color combinations I see \o/ It’s awesome palette with eyeshadow for each season… Like Peppermint+red+pink for summer, Lilac+golden+green fro spring, blue+taupe+burgundy for fall and white+silver+black for winter.
Only thing I don’t like so much about this palette is red envelope. They had something similar with Circus palette. I think they could do it better. maybe they spoiled us with beautiful Curacao & Monaco envelops =)
