Review: Sleek "Au Naturel" Pallete

So as a lover of all things beauty I like to try as many different beauty products as within my reach. As with being "new" to beauty products, at the moment I am concentrating on building up a healthy (or as most would see it unhealthy" make up collection) A staple everyday eyeshadow pallette was something I had been looking for, for quite sometime now and I think I may have found it; in the form of the Sleek "au naturel" pallette.

The pallette consits of 12  neutral shades both a mixture of matt and shimmer. There are 8 matt shades: Nougat, Nubuck, Cappuccino, Honeycomb, Toast, Bark, Regal and Noir; and 4 shimmery shades:Taupe, Conker, Moss and Mineral Earth.

Personally I tend to prefer more matter shades so this pallette is perfect; although I find that the shimmery shades are actually really wearable as the glitter is quite fine and not too chunky which I somethimes find with other shimmer eyeshadows. These shadows have good pigmentation and also find they have good staying power even without a eyeprimer, which is great! The texture of shadows is lovely; they have a silky creamy-like texture and are not chalky at all.

Sleek have also done a great job of making the packing look, well, sleek. For me a major part when buying makeup is the packaging. The pallette contains a large mirror, which is great, it also feels really well made and sturdy, which if your anything like me is an added bonus!

Overall I'd say this is a lovely pallete, especially for the (available for £7.99 at Superdrug, Boots or the Sleek website its self). I would also recommend having a nosey at the other 14 coulour options availble: if your a naturals kind-of -a gal like myself I  would also recommend checking out the "Storm" and "Oh So Special" palletes (well theres another 2 items added to my beauty wish list!)

I'd love it if you guys could let me know your favourite eyeshadow Pallettes, I always love discoving new Products!

So... That was 2013

So another year is nearly at an end, and how was it for you guys? I have to be honest and I've had better, and certainly worse!

For me 2013 just seemed to consist of allot of stress, deadlines, pressure and decision making (none of which I am a big fan of). I completed my GCSE's this and didn't end up too shabby (to be perfectly honest this is where the majority of the stress and misery of 2013 came from) and didn't end up too shabby; the end of 2013 really started to get better from their on out; i started my a-levels and am doing all the subjects i wish i could do and am really enjoying it, even though there is a hefty workload accompanying by this!!!

I have decided that I'm not going to make a "New Years resolution" but instead think about what place in my life i want to be next year, things i want to do and achieve by this time next year. I am also determinded to not let the little things in life bother me so much and have a more "C'est la vie" outlook on life.

I also plan to blog alot more, possibly thinking a blog post every week or so aswell as I do like writting blog posts (when I find the time) so i am going to try to make time. I would also like to discover and read some new blogs so please leave the name of your blog of a link in the comments and i'll be sure to "pop-over" and have a read.

I hope that everyone who reads this has a very happy new year.

Roll on 2014!!!
