Another Graphite look! Excuse the hair I couldn't be bothered to straighten it today!

Max Factor bronzer just under cheeks and on temples.

From Graphite pallette: The 1st grey on bottom row all over the lid, the bluey colour third from right in the middle, 2nd grey from left in the socket and outer V, and the last purple colour just pressed onto outer edge.
MAC Liquidlast liner

Sleek Graphite pallette

So Sleek released another Limited Edition pallette last week (or was it the week before?) and I managed to pick one up yesterday. This one is for smokey eyes, I love a good smokey eye and I love the Sleek pallette's so I had to have this. I'm sure loads of you will have seen reviews on it this week so I won't go into too much detail with it. Once again it costs less than £5, and the pigmentation is amazing, one thing I will say is to do your eyes before your foundation with this one as the fallout was terrible because of the dark colours.

So you can see you have some pale colours for highlight/base, some silvers and greys, 2 shimmery blacks and 1 matte black, 3 bluey/purples which are gorgeous!

Swatches as shown in the pallette.

And here is a look I created with it today

I think this is a great pallette for the christmas party season! I just wish I had a party to go to :(
Anyway, if your local store happens to have any in grab one as I know they are selling out fast!

Blog award!

Thank you to my sister for her Blog of the Week Award!

If you haven't already go and check out her blog http://make-itmake-up.blogspot.com/

A small haul!

So I mentioned last week that I bought Rimmel Stay Matte foundation, well it completely dried out my skin! Now the past couple of months I have had really oily skin so for it to be dry was really odd, so I decided to go and buy a new foundation! So many people talk about Revlon Colorstay and I tweeted on friday about whether it was worth a go and Dress Junkie http://dressjunkie.com/ convinced me to buy it. I ended up buying a random 17 lipgloss too in Coral queen.

But best of all my husband bought me the Smoke and Mirrors pallette from the holiday collection at MAC!!! I'm still excited. The colours are so gorgeous and very me, they're not very pigmented however. I also got a greasepaint stick from the dsquared collection in the purple colour (I can't remember what its called).

Swatches of the shades shown as they are in the pallette.

I really love the foundation the coverage is amazing and I wish I had tried it earlier! I have only been using it since saturday though so I will do a proper review soon.
