Some VERY exciting news!

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 30 - 2010

I’ll just come out with it shall I?

Sleek MakeUP got in touch, they liked my idea of naming the individual shades in their i-Divine palettes (admittedly probably not original) SO much, that they’re going to name ALL past, present and future i-Divine shadows!!  How cool is that?

Oh, but that’s not the only thing…

They wondered if I’d mind terribly if they used the names I’d already invented for the Bohemian Palette?!  Hmmmm…. do I mind? Um… NO!

So… kinda officially…

I’m not sure how it’s gonna work for future palettes, if the names will be printed on the back or if they’ll just be referenced on the website…. whatever, not really bothered – LOOK!  I named 12 eyeshadows!

I would call this my proudest moment yet, but it might cost me a marriage and motherhood… so I won’t, but well… *squee*

I also have SOME EVEN MORE exciting news to break a little later in the week, so stay tuned!

    *trying my hardest not swear here* How amazing is that. Jaw has just dropped!!! You should be proud of yourself. If it was me, I’be so chuffed with myself, I’d want to wear a t-shirt to say ‘yay, they liked my names so much that they are naming the palette after my names’. I cant believe how great this is!!! Now, get this: imagine they ring you before the release of circus palette and say ‘we liked your names so much last time, would you like to name this one too?’ or or or OR (jumping around like mad here) they make a palette named the ‘leila’ palette. Colours would include ‘mashed carrot’ orange, diarrhea brown… My mind is going wild. I am truly excited about this news! Well done you, you are a star, and shinier than a russet. xx

    Fabulous!!! I had already written the names down and stuck them on the inside of the palette lid so I knew which colours you used when I followed your EOTD. WELL DONE YOU! You’ll be selling your autograph next!

  18. I always wondered who named things like eyeshadows, paint colours and the like…. IT’S YOU!

    That’s so fab. I’m going to order the palette just so I can say I know the amazing chick who named these! xxx
