Sleek Vintage Romance Look

My Stockholm shopping spree included a visit to the local Sephora. I've many times looked at reviews of Sleek palettes but never purchased one, before that lovely Stockholm day that I encountered Sleek Vintage Romance palette. The shades looked like something I could use easily, so mine it was. This is the first look I did with it.

I used Bliss in Barcelona, a metallic blue-ish purple, on the outer side of the lid and in the crease. On the inner part is Marry in Monte Carlo, a metallic pink. Bliss in Barcelona turned out to be quite tricky to use, it formed a sort of tough surface and would give off almost any color until I scrubbed it hard with a brush. That's why I decided to use another purple on the lower lid, Bliss in Barcelona was just too much hard work ;D So on the lower lid is Forever in Florence, a plum purple. There's also just the tiniest touch of the bright silver shadow on the inner corners of my eyes. The purples, especially the plum one, really set off my green-blue eyes.

On the lips is Topshop Velvet Lips in Plush.

  4. Mulla on kanssa tää paletti, ja se on Sleekin omista ehdoton suosikki! ♥ Se on itseasiassa muutenkin yksi luottopaleteista, sävyt vaan toimii niin hyvin yhdessä, varsinkin nää pinkit ja violetit. :)

    1. Mun täytyy kokeilla lisää tän kanssa, kun kerran sävyt on niin toimivia! En heti keksinyt kovin montaa yhdistelmää, mutta selvästi vaan lisää aikaa ja luovuutta peliin :)
