Sleek MakeUP Bohemian Palette Matte FOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 17 - 2010

A quick (quick? who am I kidding, took me ages!)  FOTD showing off a couple of the matte shades from the new Sleek MakeUP Bohemian Palette:

Marron on the lid and lower lashline
Wafer in the crease
Moto-X on the upper lashline and outer V

gah… hooded lids…

oh well, you can at least see Marron UNDER my eyes right?

Dude, I honestly CAN blend!  The camera has totally washed out wafer which I blended into the socket line to ease the transition between browbone and lid.

I was surprised by how much I’m enjoying playing with some mattes, they’re looking more sophisticated and I feel like they’re blending less ‘muddily’ than shimmer shades.  Am I imagining things oh matte addicts?  I’ve really not worn mattes much before, but I just seem to be creating more polished looks with these than normal (not that you could tell from my photos).

And here’s a brighter EOTD with the Bohemian Palette:

Emperor on the lid
Sanguine in the crease
Moto-X into the socket to darken

Ok, that’s enough badly executed FOTDs from me for at least a year, apologies for any nightmares you may suffer as a result of viewing this post.  Hopefully though, it will help you decide whether or not you’ll be spending your lunchbreak today in Superdrug or Boots ;)

    That’s it, I’m sold. As soon as it comes online, I shall be purchasing. I could trek all the way into Milton Keynes and get it there, but then I have to find parking, fight my way through the crowds and knowing my luck, the darned thing would be sold out… so online it is! (Just checked and it isn’t on there yet, hope it will be soon…)

    The sanguine emperor look is to die for. What a gorgeous vibrant combination. Ab-so-lu-te-ly loves this. You were born to wear brights. Have you received by any chance any insider information on the release date for the circus palette?
    I am sorry for my big rant about sleek makeup yesterday by the way xx

    I think they’re pretty good actually!
    I love that you’ve made your own shadow names and are sticking to them haha, maybe Sleek should take the hint!

    I love the second one! Mattes are goooood… Come over to the Matte Side…

    I went into Superdrug to get mine today but they had the display for it all out, just no palettes. Thought they’d sold out but no just late delivery on it. Rubbish. It took the salesgirl ages to work this out as well, she should have just checked stock numbers first?!… Will pop in Montag methinks.

    She did tell me they’re available for four weeks, so that’s probably useful for people :)

    These eyeshadows are gorgeous and I especially like the second look. Hooded eyes are a bit hard to handle but in order to see more of the eyeshadow you could extend it above your crease a bit and then blend it towards the eyebrow. Try to do this part with your eyes open. It makes a lot of difference!
    My eyes are not totally hooded, but my right eye is a bit more hooded than the left! That’s a true eyeliner challenge!!! LOL! :)

    @Sparklz and Shine – thank you! I got on there last night and my purchase will be winging its way to me shortly! Did consider trekking into town to Superdrug, but it seems loads have either run out or don’t have, so online is the safest option.

    @Pasiphae – I’ve also got one eye slightly more hooded than the other one. So glad I’m not the only one :-)

    Is it sad that I have now actually labelled my palette with those names so I know which colours you’ve used to make those EOTDs?!

    looking at this again with awe. have you got a photo of the Sanguine Emperor look (how cool is those 2 names together!!!) with eyes half opened or 3/4 opened? (Oh dear is 3/4 open = 1/4 shut? ^_^) Maybe some cast offs you were not hoping to never show the public?
