I am a Bad Girl

Some cheap and chirpy drugstore stuff that I've been loving having a play around with this week.

On the top being the The Bad Girl palette by Sleek. It's one of their newest offerings for the coming season along with The Good Girl palette which is an invasion of pinks and reds. 

As usual I am in love with this palette and the possibilities with the 12 colours in here are endless! Let me warn you that it is not any closer to the much loved Graphite palette, dare I say much better indeed. 

The colour coordination of the palette is very well thought of. It lies on the concept of dark smokey eyes but using more indigo's, mysterious greens and purples rather than the typical black and greys. It does have a few greys and blacks though, along with some gorgeous all over lid colours.

I have to mention that Sleek Makeup is definitely improving in the quality of their shadows as they are no longer chalky, crumbly or uber shimmery-metallic that used to give it a slightly drug store feel. These are gorgeously smooth and the texture resembles some of the Nars single eyeshadow's I have tried.

Just something wearable for the day time I came up with using pinks and purples from the palette.


Eyeko's London Lips in Knightsbridge looks so much like OCC lip tars but prettier. It is the most gorgeous milky pink that feels so light on the lips and stays on for a good 2 hours. It is pretty translucent but works very well when I want to tone down the colour of my lips to something neutral without going for a nude lip.

A soft clear pink with a hint of uptown shimmer, perfect for ladies who lunch. 

They have more colours available, cutely named after some of the places in London. Soho and Shoreditch look stunning!

Remember those Fat Balms that Eyeko are known for? Well I did not like the ones I tried before but the newer colours seem reformulated and are much lighter and easily blendable. Or maybe its the colour I have which is so easy to wear that I will run out of the tiny little thing soon.

I have the one in Minty but I cant smell the mint at all - maybe its the cold I have? Anyhow, it is a sheer pink with a silver sheen to it that looks so pretty natural. I like it much better than any other highlighters I have tried before.

And here I am wearing some colours from the Sleek Bad Girl palette, a bit of the Fat Balm in Minty and London Lips Lipgloss in Knightsbridge.

Bored of an FOTD in every other post? Let me know lol.

Agnes said...

I wish they sold that palette here! And the other one too, because it would be nice to use the colours as blushes :)

Small Old Bean said...

Im thinking of getting the eyeko minty balm as a christmas present , but after you said you cant smell the mint..maybe not?
Could you also use it as a lip balm? or is it quite solid? (if you know what i mean?) ;D

Kat O said...

I'm definitely picking up the this palette, looks like the purple shade is quite light/pinkish x

Get Gawjus! said...

@Kaushal - It is not drying at all.

@Small Old Bean - I think all the new colours they have got out are really pretty and would be fab for xmas :) I don't bother much about its smell so its fine that way.

They work pretty well tbh on cheeks and on lips. It is formulated to be used both on cheeks and lips so yes you can use it as a lip balm :) It is not very solid, pretty easily blendable in fact.


Get Gawjus! said...

@Kat O - Oh no, they are dangerously pigmented :S It's the flash that's washing it off. I used a teeny bit and blended it a lot :) I should have done swatches for you guys.

kali said...

I love your look! Did you use other eyeshadows for the eyes or was it all the Sleek Palette?

Stavroula @drugstoreandbargainlover said...

I want that palette as well, it's gorgeous!!! :) Can you please do some swatches? :) You look so pretty btw! :) I like your FOTDs :)

birminghamlady said...

wow! I wasn't very impressed with the look of Bad Girl before, but the eyeshadows you used simply look stunning! and I also love that fat balm, have been wishing for it for some time.
and a far as the Sleek pallettes concern, yeah, I just bought the Sunset pallette (I just loved the colors) and I am a bit disappointed in the quality of the eyeshadows. some are really chalky and messy. i've just reviewed it today (*sigh*)

Adorable On Your Vanity said...

OOH! I love it. I really want some sleek palettes, they look so awesome! And I love your face of the days. Not overdone/OTT but really pretty, someone everyone can do :)

Get Gawjus! said...

@birminghamlady - I wasn't much fond of the earlier sleek palettes too. But the stock they produce now is of great quality for the price.

I love bohemien, circus and safari. I havent ever tried sunset really so I cant comment on that :( You should try the bad girl one though, all you need for a smokey eye!

and thanks you ladies for you lovely comments. I will keep the fotds coming :D
