I see Sparkle!

Yes you guessed it right, Sleek is out with another of their cheap yet chic palettes but this time right in time for Christmas baby!

It has all the brilliant colours your would need to create a party look - for friends, family or teens. It will work for all.

Now some may find it a bit too colourful for their liking however trust me it is worth every penny. The pictures do not do justice to the pigmentation and uniqueness of the colours.

Obviously because its called Sparkle - all the colours besides three of them have bits of glitter in them which are quite finely milled. You also get your usual carbon black matte along with a shimmery gold and a silver.

Here are some of my favourite colours from the palette. The dark blues and the green are seriously to die for! They resemble some single and duo eye shadow's that Nars do for an atrocious price tag.

And can you see when I say that the glitter is finely milled. It spreads consistently with the shadow,  forming a nice layer of shimmer over it. Not bits of glitter at random places, get me?

There is some fall out with these shadows but I don't quite mind as it happens with almost all glittery shadows. They also do stain the eye lid so make sure to prime your lids well before using these.

As the possibility of looks with this palette are innumerable, I could not decide what to put up hence I will do a separate post regarding what possible looks you can do with it. 

So, what are you waiting for? This is limited edition and will release on 24th November until 8th of January. I can see this being a lovely stocking filler for just £5.99 or a beginners guide to glittery eye shadows.

Oh my gosh, weeping, crying, want it so bad.

I could concievably wear every single colour in that palette now that the chalky matte white has thankfully vanished from sight.
