Recently this Sleek eye shadow palette – Au Naturel has become an everyday favourite of mine, here’s a quick review and swatches of the palette!
This palette is great for an everyday natural look or a beautiful smokey eye look for a night out! I’d say this palette is a great dupe for Urban Decays Naked 2 Palette, the colours are quite similar and it’s a cheaper alternative, great for those on a budget.
The top six shades are very neutral toned, when I use them everyday I have go back and reapply a few times to see any real colour (this is probably down to my skin tone though) and the shades pick up really well on my Real Techniques shadow brush.
The bottom six have really earthy tones, kind of reminds me of Autumn colours, these are really great for creating natural smoky eyes or the shades are buildable to create a dramatic look. The pigmentation of the bottom colours are excellent, a little goes a long way!
The texture of the shadows are a cream to powdery, when I use my fingers it feels really silky and smooth. They lift very well onto the brush and it glides and blends effortlessly but I found that the shimmery eyeshadows don’t really lift well or blend very easily. It takes me a lot longer to create the desired look and I really have work to get any product on to the brush.
Available at Superdrug.com for £7.99
Overall it’s a great palette, colours are lovely and neutral and for £7.99 it’s a great price! Looking forward to trying the other eyeshow palettes now!

Hello my lovely ladies,
Just a quick post about a few products that I loved in May. Gosh I can’t believe its mid June already! Where has time gone!!
Sleek Blush – Pomegranate
I’m really loving Sleek products at the moment and particularly their blushes. They are highly pigmented and you only need the tiniest amount on your brush. I love the packaging as well, as you can see its really small so you can just pop it into your handbag and it has a little mirror as well which is really handy.
The Body shop – Brow and Liner Kit – 03 – Brown & Black
I have been looking for a brow kit for my dark brows for a long time and usually I can only ever find brown to dark brown shades, which for me don’t really work as I have jet black eyebrows. So I found this in the Body shop and just had to get it and I absolutely love it. I mainly use the Black shade, the applicator I find it really good, it’s stiff and picks up the product really well and application is quick and easy. It lasts all day and I couldn’t be without it!
Gosh Intense Eye Liner Pen – 03 Brown
I have this eye liner in Black as well but lately I have been reaching for the brown for a natural day time look and I think it’s brilliant. It’s so easy and quick to use, no mess and dries quickly. The tip of the liner is fine and produces a lovely thin line so I can get it close to the lash line for a beautiful look.
The Body Shop – Radiant Highlighter
I’ve been looking for a liquid highlighter for quite some time and again I came across this one when browsing online and after reading really good reviews on the product I just couldn’t resist. It’s light and leaves a beautiful shimmer. It’s just perfect to finish off any look to give you a fantastic radiant glow. I love it!
