A little Haul...

Today I have been running round like a mad woman with my mum trying to get everything together for our Halloween party tomorrow night. However, I asked my lovely mum to stop at Superdrug on our way home to grab a Bad Gal palette from Sleek. During my mad dash in there I spotted the Accessorize stand!!

I was so happy (which is pretty sad) as our Superdrug until recently was really rubbish but we acquired the Sleek stand and now Accessorize.

Anyway I decided to just grab two polishes today and I picked up Notorious and Magical Mocha! Hopefully I'll have swatches up for you tomorrow of both. But for now I'll show you the new Sleek palette.

This is a new improved Graphite palette and - good news- its part of the main line. Hoorah! I love my Graphite palette and like to use it whenever I do a smoky eye so I was sort of on the wall about this. However I saw swatches last night on Deborah's blog I decided I did indeed need to purchase it as they have taken out some of the greys (which are all very very similar) and replaced them with greens and indigo blues.

Hello orange hand and sausage fingers!

What's great about this palette is they have decided to name the shades. They're written on the plastic sheet that they place over the shadows which I usually throw away so I'm not sure how long it will be around for before I get fed up and chuck it.

Names of the each are (L-R)
Top Row - Innocence, Gullible, Blade,Gun Metal, Underground,Noir
Bottom Row- Intoxicated, Envy, Obnoxious, Abyss, Twilight, Rebel

I'm unsure of the texture of Underground and Envy, they don't feel as soft and smooth as the usual Sleek shadows. However, this is a lovely palette and one I'm sure I'll get lots of use out of.


  1. I wish we had Sleek here in the states! Barry M too. Great palette! <3

  2. I really like the look of this. But i'm not really very good at doing a smokey eye plus i have dark circles and I try and cover them up but i still look like I have being punched

  3. I love Sleek!! I've got the sunset pallette and the colours are laverly!!

    must get this one too!!!

  4. Oh my goodness, this is the best news I've heard all day (does that make me sad?!) the Graphite pallet is back?! I didn't manage to get one when it first came out as it was limited edition and I heard about it quite late I think. I definitely need to get my hands on this, the colours are gorgeous! x

  5. i really want to try sleek palette xD

  6. That palette looks great, nice shades and pigmentation!!


  7. Its a gorgeous palette! Hopefully will have a FOTD using it soon (when my rather swollen lip goes down) x
