Sleek i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in Sunset | Swatches and Review

My first ever Sleek purchase was a blusher and I remember collecting a few as well as the infamous contour kit. Sleek have grown so much since then and now I can safely say that their eyeshadow palettes are something worth talking about! I was sent this to try out and I couldn't help but swatch this to share with you all.

Product description:
Sleek MakeUP’s legendary i-Divine palettes are 12 shades of super-pigmented, longlasting, mineral based eyeshadow, designed to suit all. Each i-Divine contains pearlescent shades, which contain mica particles that highlight and illuminate giving an overal radiant effect.Available in a variety of colour ways, your i-Divine is waiting for you.
Sunset shades represent the sun, sea and sand. With a blend of shimmering golds, reds and blues, this palette is perfect for that sun-kissed look.

Meet this beautiful palette! The i-Divine named Sunset. This palette boasts of a collection of warm hues coupled with smooth and metallic finishes.
The palette is so travel friendly! A sturdy black case that houses all 12 eyeshadows. There's a huge clear mirror inside too! The palette also includes a dual ended sponge applicator but I never use those anymore, I prefer using an actual brush to apply and blend eyeshadows.
The eyeshadow colours are insanely PRETTY! When you open this up, you can definitely see that the colours of a sunset are captured well and match the theme perfectly. Each eyeshadow does not have a name or number so I'll try my best to describe the colours.
There is one matte shade (black) and the rest of the colours have a shimmery/pearlescent finish. I think it's great that Sleek have added a black shade into the product since it's great for intense smokey eyes and you can really play around with all of the colours. There's warm berry tones to beautiful rose toned pinks. All of the shimmery shades have fantastic colour pay off that are not only intense but long lasting too! The rose gold and cool blue colours are my favourites from this palette. 
The formulation is so buttery and so easy to blend and work with. It adheres to the skin well without much fall out.
I have swatched them without a primer so that you can see the intensity of the colour. I would still recommend that you do use a primer so that the colour is enhanced and that it stays put. 

I couldn't recommend this palette enough, if you are into warm, fiery shades then this is perfect for you! I can't wait to wear this more often and play around with more of the colours. From the beautiful glittery pigment to the long-lasting wear, this palette truly has it all!

NEW I Heart Makeup Lipbalms

When blogger packages are done right... Recently this beautiful pink package landed on my doorstep and I was so so excited to see what was inside. I could smell the lovely sweet like scents from the outside and just like pick n mix sweets, I was delighted to find these inside...

Product description:
Replenish, hydrate, soften and protect your lips with these luscious lip balms. Great lip care in 5 fab flavours. The unique capsule design are perfect for your handbag.

Meet the new five lipbalms from I Heart Makeup. The younger sister brand of Make Up Revolution. These lip balms really remind me of the EOS balms but alot more affordable. Packaging-wise these are very travel friendly. The rubber casing houses the actual lip balm. When you twist and pull the lid, the lip balm appears in a bullet form. All lipbalms are clear and are very easy to apply. 
They're more hygienic too since you do not have to dip your finger into the balm and apply.
The scents are incredible. Each one smells so realistic which is lovely! My personal favourite is the Raspberry Fizz, partially due to the fact that it's PINK! It's also the one that is the most strongest out of all of the scents. I definitely recommend givin' these a good ol' smell because they all have been scented beautifully.
The formulation is good. After a few applications my lips felt more softer and moisturised. In the ingredients, Shea Butter is included along with Paraffin which is derived from Petroleum (think Vaseline lip balm). I think I would prefer it more if the lipbalm just contained Shea Butter rather than having paraffin mixed in.

A cute release but I've loved previous releases alot more, nevertheless it's still worth checking out these balms if you're after a fun lip product!

Mini Hema Haul

What I bought:
Mint Green Ballpoint Pen - 75p
Soft Nougat not pictured, all eaten. Oops... - £1

So last week, me and my other half were walking around Birmingham central and we was just randomly going through some stores but this particular place caught my eye and it was the pastel pretty stationery that I could see from afar and well, I am so glad I ended up discovering this gem of a store because it's a stationery's lover heaven.
I have heard of Hema before but I wasn't sure of it's exact location in the UK but luckily the new store in Birmingham is just perfect for those accidental trips.

I needed a new little notebook. A smaller sized one so it's easier to carry around for on the go note taking or list writing. I just love the cute colourful bottle print and the pink paper makes this the girliest book ever!

I was eyeing up the sticky notes section but I didn't want the standard pink, orange, yellow and green block that you practically see everywhere! I was amazed at the price of the sticky book markers. I instantly added this to my basket. The cute pastel sticky notes are perfect for any important dates/times and planning towards my lil blog.
The heart stickers and pens are an essential for me since I love collecting both. I can use the stickers to decorate anything I want and the pens are cute to just throw into my bag or keep on my bedside table.

Have you been to Hema before?
