Sleek and Solone

I don't think I need to do much introduction on Sleek Makeup, right? Well, it's quite popular in the UK already. If you're unsure, you may always google it up.

I've gotten my Sleek Makeup Palette in Original just 2 days ago but so sorry, I wasn't in the mood to share any of the swatches due to my personal problems.



On the whole, I love the packaging of their palettes - very sleek and posh and of course, sexy! I love packaging in black!

Lemme show you what's inside...



Gorgeous, ain't it?

I regret not getting Chaos and also Graphite. Darn... I should have splurged but nevertheless, I'm good for while. This palette is around 3/4 of Naked's size and it's great for traveling. Well, Naked is great for traveling as well!

On the pigmentation of the eyeshadows...



They're pigmented alright. The eyeshadows feel really smooth and as you can see from the swatches, they glide effortlessly.

Let me do a list of pros and cons.

Pros #1 - good pigmentation.

Pros #2 - affordable.

Pros #3 - great for traveling as you only need one palette.

So, now, it's time for cons!

Cons #1 - not available in Malaysia.

Cons #2 - colours don't stick to brushes! You've gotta use the sponge tip applicator and me no likey! Hate, hate, hate!

Cons #3 - pigmentation can get better - more improvement.

Overall, this is my rating!

Now, comes the so-called pencil liner as being recommended by Taiwan's Beauty Show, Solone Magic Waterproof Eyeliner!



I got two of these eyeliners - deepest black and shimmering purple. The purple eyeliner is beautiful, simply beautiful, what else can I say?



The colours are very pigmented but I just swatched it softly and carefully, well, as usual, I didn't wanna waste them!

As much as this eyeliner claims to be waterproof, I don't think it's waterproof at all. Thus, I agree with Isabel of her review on these eyeliners.

I tried them on my waterlines and they don't stay. They strayed about and within minutes, the eyeliner was transferred onto my lower lashline, making me look like a horrible panda!

Then, I tried it on the corner of my eyes, it smudged! Yes, it smudged pretty badly!

I guess this eyeliner is only suitable for the use on your eyelids and not waterline. It's similar to UD's 24/7 eyeliners.

Let's say if I wanna smudge these eyeliners without the aid of any liquid, well, they don't really budge but if you have them in shimmers, the shimmers will be gone within seconds!

That's it, that marks the end of my reviews!

Be open and receptive to his moves, but let him pursue you.

Let him do the chasing, all you have to do is be appreciative and open to possibilities.

But let him do the chasing. He'll feel manly when you give good respond to his effort of winning you.

Just relax, if he wants you, he'll get you. Relax ;)

If you can get the Sleek palettes for around RM25 to RM30, it's considered cheap. Asked a friend in UK to check the price for me but after conversion and tax and all, it's around RM45++ per palettes. Don't think I wanna spend so much on it :) I wanted Graphite too actually but Graphite is more expensive. I got it for RM28.

Hahahaha... I need dependable falsies more than eyeshadows. UD Naked is still in the closet! Must tahan like you. Hahaha.
