Sleek | Precious Metals Highlighting Palette

I've really been loving highlighters lately, I think the love began to grow after I purchased the Sleek Contour & Highlight Palette as I fell in love with the highlight shade and couldn't stop wearing it everyday! Anyways so I was casually browsing in Superdrug on my lunch break when I saw the Sleek Precious Metals Palette which contains 3 cream highlighters and 1 powder highlighter.

I'm in love with this palette, the highlighters are so pigmented, creamy and blend in nicely into the skin giving you the perfect natural highlight. Creamy highlighters always tend to look much more natural compared to powders which is great for everyday wear. I'm not too sure why there is only one powder highlight in the palette (Antique Bronze) but it's a great palette for all skin tones. That's probs my fave thing about Sleek, they cater for all skin colours from their individual products to their palettes. 

Renaissance Gold is by far my fave shade from the palette and is my go-to for everyday! The palette is £9.99 and is available from Boots or Superdrug. You get a small brush with the palette which is cute, however I use my Zoeva brush to apply this just above the cheekbones. The packaging is very sleek, love what you did there Sleek! The palette just gets a big thumbs up from me, yet again another great palette that I recommend you buy!

Sally Hansen | Miracle Gel Greyfitti

It's fair to say, I am in love with the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel in Greyfitti. Miracle Gel is a fairly new product on the scene which is a two-step nail polish which offers a gel finish without the salon fuss. It's such a nice neutral colour which goes with everything, I literally can't stop wearing this and will need to stock up! 

When I first tried Miracle Gel, the manicurist told me it tends to work better and last much longer when you don't apply a base coat. After oohing and ahhing, and trying the polish with and without the base coat I've noticed a big difference in the finish and wear. So step 1 is basically the colour and step 2 is the gel finish top coat. Now I'm a big fan of Sally Hansen top coats, their Insta-dry top coat is the best invention ever and I always find them quite shiny even after a few days of wear. Miracle Gel gets a big thumbs up from me, and I think the majority of the vote comes from the colour! 

Miracle Gel is available at Boots here.

Makeup Forever | HD Primer

So it's official Makeup Forever is coming to the UK this year and are yet to announce a date. The brand will be available at Debenhams. I literally cannot wait, as this brand is seriously amazing and I've only ever got my hands on it when I'm on holiday. Can't wait to get colour matched for their most known product; HD Foundation.

As you do when in Paris, I purchased their HD Primer which is a Micro-perfecting primer. It's a lightweight, oil-free, complexion correct which preps the skin for an even, long-lasting and seamless makeup finish. There are 7 variations of the primer, from what I can remember there is: neutral, green, pink, lilac, caramel, apricot and blue. I have the neutral and lilac primer. The neutral one is an all-rounder, whereas the lilac one is to even the skin tone. 

I love Makeup Forever's HD complexion range, as it really gives you HD looking skin! Skin that looks good enough in real life and on camera is a winner for me. As with every primer, it minimises the appearance of fine lines, pores and deeply moisturises the skin. I wear the neutral primer everyday, and the lilac one for when I'm going out as I know my foundation will especially look good on camera.

Pricey? Yes. The primer costs around £29 when converted to GBP. However, it's a 30ml bottle and one pump everyday is more than enough. It's been a month and a half now, and I still have more than half in my bottle. A strong 8 outta 10 from me!
