Beauty Haul – Sleek Palettes A New Day, All Night Long & Enchanted Forest, Olay Anti-Wrinkle Gift Set

Hi there! Sleek launched two new palettes in February – A New Day and All Night Long. So I was waiting for the next 3 for 2 deal to get my hands on these two palettes and the Enchanted Forest palette from last autumn. Both Boots and Superdrug run a 3 for 2 promotion at the moment – that’s why these three palettes are mine now! 🙂

Now let’s have a closer look at the A New Day palette below. It bursts with wearable neutral shades. I love it!

The All Night Long palette below is just as pretty as the A New Day palette. It’s full of very wearable eyeshadows. Perfect!

I’ve been lusting after the Enchanted Forest palette for a few months now. I know it’s not an expensive palette. But considering all the beauty stuff I’ve got, I couldn’t justify buying more palettes. However, a 3 for 2 offer is my licence to go nuts. 🙂 Anyway, isn’t the Enchanted Forest palette incredibly pretty?

And the super star of my shopping spree is Olay’s Anti-Wrinkle gift set. It contains Olay’s Firm & Lift Day Cream (50ml = full size) and a pocket mirror. This gift set was £5 only at Tesco’s!

I haven’t used these products yet. But as soon as I’ve tried them, I’ll review them all. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!

Sleek i-Divine Garden Of Eden Palette

Hi there! I finally got around to swatch one of my favourite palettes, Sleek i-Divine Garden of Eden. I love this palette because it’s full of neutrals and greens and it’s perfect for spring or autumn.
Garden of Eden
Like every other Sleek palette this one’s got a mirror and it contains 12 shades:
Top: Gates Of Eden, Eve’s Kiss, Paradise On Earth, Python, Forbidden, Flora
Bottom: Entwined, Adam’s Apple, Fig, Evergreen, Fauna, Tree Of Life

Flora, Adam’s Apple and Tree Of Life are matte shades, everything else is shimmery. My favourites are Python, Flora, Fauna and Tree Of Life – shades 4, 6, 11 and 12 in the swatch below.
Garden of Eden
11 of the 12 eyeshadows in this palette are highly pigmented and easy to work with – it’s only Adam’s Apple, the matte light green, that comes across as a little pale. However, on the other hand side, Tree Of Life, the matte dark green, is incredibly intense and more than makes up for Adam’s Apple’s paleness.

I strongly recommend this palette if you love neutrals and greens or if you want to unleash your inner Poison Ivy. 😀 Sleek i-Divine Garden of Eden palette is available for £7.99 at most larger drugstores. As always, look out for a 3 for 2 offer!

Sleek i-Divine Au Naturel Palette

Hi there! I finally got myself this pretty eyeshadow palette: Sleek i-Divine Au Naturel (scroll down for swatches). Every time there’s a 3 for 2 offer, this palette is usually sold out on day one, but this time I was lucky!

I wanted this palette for quite some time because the shades – most of which are mattes – are simply stunning, but considering that I’ve got other eye palettes, this one wasn’t a priority. However, with the 3 for 2 offer, I thought I’d treat myself to it (and two more palettes, by the way, but those will be looked at separately)
Sleek Au Naturel 1
This i-Divine palette comes with a mirror and it contains the following shades:
Top: Nougat, Nubuck, Cappuccino, Honeycomb, Toast, Taupe
Bottom: Conker, Moss, Bark, Mineral Earth, Regal, Noir

Taupe, Conker, Moss and Mineral Earth are shimmery shades, everything else is matte. My favourites are Cappuccino, Conker, Bark and Regal – shades 3, 7, 9 and 11 in the swatch below.

Just in case you think I swatched 11 of the 12 eyeshadows only… no, all 12 are shown in the swatch. Nougat, the first shade, simply doesn’t show much on my pale arms.
Sleek Au Naturel
I like this palette very much. The neutral shades are perfect for beautiful everyday looks. But the shimmers are a nice addition to this mainly matte palette because they can add a touch of subtle glamour in an instant.

The shimmery shades are incredibly buttery – they’re a dream to work with. The mattes are not as buttery, but I wouldn’t call them chalky either. They’re actually quite blendable. To sum it up: Yes, I do recommend this eyeshadow palette!

Sleek i-Divine Au Naturel is available for £7.99, but keep your eyes peeled for offers!
