Sleek – Oh so Special palette swatch / spidermetrix

Hello again dolls!

(Greek version here)

After one month of my order (Amazon.co.uk), it finally came. Took lots of time, compared to other orders from there, and other shipments from UK.
Sleek – oh so special on my hands, finally! I’ve been flirting with this pallete for quite some time.

 

Before writing about the pallete, I want to tell you how I got this palette.
Long time ago, my brother asked me to sign up in a poll site. Its called Spidermetrix.
What’s that? You complete polls and you get points as rewards which when they will be enough, you can cash out . Either by cash, donation or amazon voucher.
I collected enough all those months, so I got an amazon voucher..
And here I am …
Whoever wants to sign up, can do it from this link. There is no spam mails , so don’t worry.
 
 Back to our subject now…
I decided to get it from amazon, since the shipping from Sleek’s site is 9 euro, which is extrememely high.
Like the blushes that I swatched recently, so the palette, has great pigmentation.
Bow – Organza – Ribbon – Gift Basket – Glitz – Celebrate
 
Pamper – Gateau – The mail – Boxed – Wrapped up – Noir
Bow – Very very light beige. A color that I use only to the brow-bone.
Organza- I love it. Its a shimmering pink. Although I love matte shades.
Ribbon – Pinky / Salmon.
Gift Basket – Bronze.
Glitz – Blue-grey. Not my favorite, too dark for me.Μπλε-γκρί να το πω? Θα το πω. Δεν τρελαίνομαι ιδιαίτερα, δεν μπορώ να χρησιμοποιώ και τόσο σκούρο χρώμα.
Celebrate – Black/coffee with red shimmer. Me likey.
Pamper- Pinkish, a lighter version of Ribbon.
Gateau- Shimmery lilac. Perfect.
The Mail-Taupe ?
Boxed- A matter brown.
Wrapped UP – Can’t describe it . Like a purplish,brown?
Noir – Black. Perfect black.
Half and half.
 
My two favorites.
What’s suprising is that, except the amazing pigmentation (its not that obvious in the pics, after all, I suck at taking photos, so is my camera), the eyeshadows also apply very smoothly. They are not chalky, not even the shimmery ones.

The brush is awful, but the mirror on the top, is great.

See the swatch in my hand. I haven’t used primer (I will from now on)
Bow – Organza – Ribbon – Gift Basket – Glitz – Celebrate (Bow is non-visible here.)
         
Pamper – Gateau – The mail – Boxed – Wrapped up – Noir
         

I love it. the colors are all fantastic, and you can use it both for everyday make up and night one.

You are gonna love it.

Any of you have it already? What do you think?

 

Lots of love

My litle new stuff

Hello Dolls!

Ηere I am, backkk!

I know I m kinda(??) lost, but I have no time, really.

For the time being, I ll just update you with my new belongings (already made this post in Greek language , here ).

My very very first new belonigng is the first thing I have ever won. Ever. Its a beautiful red dress, from the brand mumuorganics , a very special brand that only uses organic , and friendly to the enviroment fabrics, in very bright colors.

Since I won, I contacted Mrs.Bendila Athina, where I found out that she is the desginer of these beautiful goodies.! κ.Μπεντίλα Αθηνά, που ανακάλυψα οτι είναι και η σχεδιάστρια αυτών των υπέροχων κομματιών!

She is very sweet, polite and ready to help you. Ask whatever you like, about where it ships, costs,sizes and everything. She will help you rigth away.

I won the dress called Marylin (the names of the dresses are names of fame fattales , like Marylin, Audrey, Sophia..etc). My dress is lenghted to the knee, it ties in the back, strapless…

You can see it here in the girl-model of the site, but I won’t put the photos directly here, to avoid any comparison with the clumsy model of myself.

   

The dress is very sex, fresh and comfy.

And looks every more sexy if another person is wearing it.. Lolz.

🙂

Next, is a set of sunscreen and hat, that Loreal sent to me….

I waited to try it first, before saying my opinion. Because I am milky white, and I have to wait a lot to put an oil for tanning, the sunscreen is what I need. And with +30 protection, th ebest!

What I loved the most, no matter how stupid I might sound, is the smell. Due to the huge amount of tourists in my area, I hate the coconut smell that almost all of the sunscreens have.

I haven’t wear the hat yet, though..

Next is a bracelet I won from  ADA Collection Style,
I purple leather bracelet, with gold clasp. Its very very nice.

I like it because I can wear it , just this, or with my watch, or together with other bracelets and its very elegant.

   

Next thing I won is a giveaway I won from 2 Greek beauty bloggers. Eleni and Anna from  ticklemepink
A beautiful silver pendant. I haven’t wear it yet (and get a photo).Eleni also send me a pallete and a lipgloss because she … ”’ delayed” to sent me the prize. Like if she had to sent it asap. Such a lovely girl. Thank you 🙂

 
That’s for now, honeys.

I ll be write back with the Sleek’s -oh so special pallete review/swatch, soon..

Lots of love

February Goodies / hauls and presents.

Hello beauties,

Back to base, and hopefully I ll post more often now.

I want to post what I got for presents for my birthday, my Elf Haul and a palette that was in a magazine.

 ♥

Elf goodies

There was an 30% off, and I didn’t miss the chance to order them. I was going to anyway, using my free shipping code (by Fenzy app) , but that was even better.

The awesome moment when you open the box to get your goodies

And put them all together in front of you

More specifically I ordered the following — white a bit of comments (no reviews or swatches yet)

Eye Widener in White – Its not white, its pearly white. I wanted it to be matte white, but no harm,  its okay

Kabuki Brush – Love it

Blush Brush – Its for a friend, didn’t test it , but I am sure it rocks :p

All Over Color Stick in Pink lemonade – Nice, lovely color and great application

Lipstick in Voodoo – Beautiful color, I love the smell of the lipstick

clarifying pressed powder in Rosy Beige – I am the most dissapointed by that. Darker than it looks. But won’t go wasted, maybe I d use as a contour.

Tinted Moisuriser SPF 20 in Porcelain – Fits my skin nice, like it . (haven’t test it all over my face though)

luscious liquid lipstick in Ruby Slipper – I though I m gonna hate it , coz it has glitter (that is not visible in the site photos), but turned out to look very nice .

And day to night beauty on the go palette. – Beautiful pallete. I prefer the natural colors more.

Tinted Moisturiser SPF 15 in Rosy beige – Not my color at all. Way more darker, and.. yellowish! I picked the rosy, to avoid yellow. :S This will go wasted. Can’t use it at all.

Shimmer Eyeliner Pencil in Precious Pink – Nice.

Studio Blush in Tickle Pink and Candid Coral – Love – love – love them ♥

 Presents.

20 something years ago, at 28th of February, a little girl was born…

This lil girl grow up, had many friends, and some of them that were in her hometown, got her some presents (all of them, shirts).

My lovely Katerina, got my this shirt. Its a lovely shade of green, sporty style, that will be great with sport trousers, or jeans and chucks.

My other lovely friend, and future sister in law (she is my brother’s amazing girlfriend) , Aphrodite , got me this cartoon shirt.

My love of cartoons is not a secret 🙂

Last but not least, my friends Artemis and Dimitra, got me another present, a pink shirt, with grey/pink animal prints as a stamp.

But I went and change the shirt. The shirt was amazing, the color was fantastic, but… I don’t wear extra small. Even though I d like to fit even in Small, I don’t.

My boobs were going to explode in there, and the belly was extra visible. Sorry girls for changing it, but there was no pink or other sizes in other colors of the same shirt available.

So I got this dress (its beige and BLUE in reality) and a pouch instead. I was so sad that couldn’t have the same they got me 😦

Magazine gift – Avon Pallete

My last new thing, was this palette from Avon (I think it was in Vogue gr)

And here is swatched in my arm. Its is supossed to be White – purple – grey and dark purple/greyish.

Needless to say that the dark purple is a fail, and looks like grey. The other are quite nice.

I will be back soon, swatching  – probably – the elf goodies 🙂

Lots of love babies
