Sleek Storm palette & Sleek Rose Gold blush

     Comanda asta am dat-o undeva in jurul zilei de 14 februarie. Site-ul de pe care am cumparat produsele avea o promotie de Sf Valentin asa ca m-am ales cu oglinda gratis (mijloc).
     I ordered these products around 14th of February. The site from where i bought them had a special promotion for Valentine's Day so i got the mirror for free (middle).

     Al 3lea fard de pe randul de sus, precum si ultimele doua de pe cel de jos sunt singurele mate din toata paleta.
     The 3rd eyeshadow from the upper row and the last 2 from the bottom one are the only mattes in this palette, the rest being shimmer.

     Nu sunt o persoana innebunita dupa blush-uri, principala mea manie fiind fardurile de ochi; pana mai acum ceva timp nu le foloseam absolut deloc. Problema este ca sunt foarte palida si daca foloseam si o pudra matifianta pentru a-mi fixa bb cream-ul, pielea mea lua un aspect usor nenatural. M-am vazut deci nevoita sa introduc blush-ul in machiajul de zi cu zi. Iar cum vroiam sa-mi cumpar o noua paleta Sleek, am decis ca si blush-ul sa-l iau tot de la ei. Asa ca m-am pus pe urmarit reviews, cautat swatches si in cele din urma m-am oprit asupra nuantei Rose Gold.
Sincer imaginea de mai sus nu-i face dreptate deloc. Nu prea ma pricep sa descriu culori, dar hai sa incercam: Rose Gold este un roz cu o usoara tenta de piersica si irizatii aurii. Nu este mat asa ca ar fi bine sa-l evitati in cazul in care aveti pori mariti sau alte semne asupra carora nu doriti sa atrageti atentia. Despre aceasta nuanta se spune ca ar fi dupe-ul perfect pentru Nars Orgasm. Cantitatea de produs este mai mult decat generoasa, probabil o sa-mi ia o vesnicie pana o sa il termin, pigmentarea este la fel ca si in cazul fardurilor Sleek, foarte buna, iar cutiuta este asa de draguta!!.. :)
     I'm not a big blush person, my primary obsession are eyeshadows; i didn't even used blushes until recently. The thing is that i'm pretty pale and if i used a mattifying powder to set my bb cream, then my skin would look a bit unnatural. So i was forced to introduce a blush in my daily make-up routine. I already wanted to get a new Sleek eyeshadow palette so i decided that i'll buy a Sleek blush as well. So i started watching reviews, looking for swatches and in the end i chose Rose Gold.
The above images doesn't do it justice tbh. I'm not really good at describing colors, but let's try: Rose Gold is a pink with a bit of a peachy tone and gold shimmer. It's not matte so it'd be best to avoid it if you have large pores or any mark that you don't want to become obvious. It is said that this blush is the perfect dupe for Nars' Orgasm. The quantity is more than enough, it'll take forever to use it all probably, the pigmentation is very good and the packaging is sooo cute!!.. :)

     Despre paleta n-am multe de zis: culori frumoase, puternic pigmentate, se blend-uiesc usor. Marca Sleek este destul de faimoasa pentru fardurile lor de o foarte buna calitate, oferite la un pret modic. Unele au ceva fall out, dar nu este un lucru peste care nu se poate trece. Cu Storm se pot realiza atat machiaje de zi, neutre, cat si de seara. Singura mea problemuta ar fi ca Sleek nu pare sa se inteleaga asa bine cu primer-ul de la ELF ca alte farduri. In special nuantele metalizate. Dupa amiaza cam incep sa se adune in pliul pleoapei. Am incercat si NYX HD Eyeshadow Base si rezultatul a fost semi-dezastruos. Deja de la aplicare incepusem sa vad semne de creasing. O sa-i mai dau cateva sanse acestui primer insa, macar pentru review-urile bune pe care le-am citit despre el. Dar paleta este atat de buna, mai ales raportat la pret incat faptul incepe sa se adune fardul putin in pliul pleoapei cu o ora doua mai devreme decat altele nici ca mai conteaza. O singura observatie mai am: in  poza culoarea 3 de pe randul de jos bate spre charcoal, dar este de fapt un verde inchis foarte frumos.
     I don't have much to say about the palette: beautiful colors, with good good pigmentation and that are easy to blend. Sleek is very well known for its good but inexpensive eyeshadows. Some have a bit of fall out, but nothing that you can't live with. With Storm you can do day, neutral looks as well as night, smoky and more intense ones. My only tiny problem would be that Sleek doesn't seem to get along so well with my ELF eye primer. Especially the more shimmery colors. In the afternoon they start to crease. I tried NYX HD Eyeshadow Base too and the result was pretty bad. I noticed creasing almost immediately after applying the eyeshadow. But i'm willing to give another chance to this primer at least for the good reviews that i read about it. The palette is so good though, especially if you look at the price, that the fact that your eyeshadow starts to crease one or two hours earlier that others really doesn't matter. I have one more thing to say: in the pic the 3rd color from the bottom row looks a bit like a charcoal, but is in fact a very beautiful dark green.

     Pret: Paleta Storm m-a costat 34,99 Ron, iar Blush-ul 28,99; ambele le-am cumparat de pe
     Price:  Storm palette is €8.50 on the Sleek website (, while the blush is €7.

  1. The Canon refurbished cameras are able to provide this
    quality and reliability because they have been checked, repaired and serviced by their manufacturers.
    The Canon products are not only high in quality but
    also available in worthwhile cost range. But there are only a few that put
    out top quality cameras.

    Have a look at my weblog ... canon 6d

  2. In other words, it enables you to carry on working when not connected to the
    internet, a feature being introduced in the next few weeks.
    5 hour battery life you aren't going to find anything that lasts longer on one charge and is still able to offer a full range of applications and net connectivity. The Samsung Chromebook is essentially a laptop that can only surf the internet and run apps.

  3. But you can also enjoy it through another innovations feature of
    Playbook. It consists of the 1GHz dual core processor
    with the RAM of 1GB, in order to operate most complicated and challenging applications.

    These efforts are incredibly obvious when it
    comes to the Playbook's strengths as a traveling device.

  4. Not sure if you need more insulation on your water heater.
    Sometimes, the bargains can be found at different
    stores, so shop around in your neighborhood stores for the best
    deal. To save energy, the aim was for residents to program their
    schedules for regulating home temperatures, which
    proved to be complex and not popular in use.

  5. ) However, by the same token, the bigger the scope, the harder it is to
    haul it around and set it up. Spec-wise, this $220 7-inch
    tablet is inferior to the $200 16 GB Nexus 7 in pretty much every way, except for having expandable memory and a rear-facing camera.

    there are types that are for a single phone or data card and
    there are types for multiple, simultaneous, phones and data cards.
