Review: Sleek "Au Naturel" Pallete


So as a lover of all things beauty I like to try as many different beauty products as within my reach. As with being "new" to beauty products, at the moment I am concentrating on building up a healthy (or as most would see it unhealthy" make up collection) A staple everyday eyeshadow pallette was something I had been looking for, for quite sometime now and I think I may have found it; in the form of the Sleek "au naturel" pallette.

The pallette consits of 12  neutral shades both a mixture of matt and shimmer. There are 8 matt shades: Nougat, Nubuck, Cappuccino, Honeycomb, Toast, Bark, Regal and Noir; and 4 shimmery shades:Taupe, Conker, Moss and Mineral Earth.

Personally I tend to prefer more matter shades so this pallette is perfect; although I find that the shimmery shades are actually really wearable as the glitter is quite fine and not too chunky which I somethimes find with other shimmer eyeshadows. These shadows have good pigmentation and also find they have good staying power even without a eyeprimer, which is great! The texture of shadows is lovely; they have a silky creamy-like texture and are not chalky at all.

Sleek have also done a great job of making the packing look, well, sleek. For me a major part when buying makeup is the packaging. The pallette contains a large mirror, which is great, it also feels really well made and sturdy, which if your anything like me is an added bonus!

Overall I'd say this is a lovely pallete, especially for the (available for £7.99 at Superdrug, Boots or the Sleek website its self). I would also recommend having a nosey at the other 14 coulour options availble: if your a naturals kind-of -a gal like myself I  would also recommend checking out the "Storm" and "Oh So Special" palletes (well theres another 2 items added to my beauty wish list!)

I'd love it if you guys could let me know your favourite eyeshadow Pallettes, I always love discoving new Products!

Soap and Glory Pulp-Friction Foamy Fruity Body Scrub Review

I have a love for all Soap and Glory products (well more of an obsession to tell the truth) and have recently acquired another product to my growing collection as a gift. So since I've started blogging now I thought I would write a cheeky little Review about it, so here goes...

Every Soap and Glory Product I come across I seem to instantly love and this product is no exception. The scrub contains fig powder, pumice, peppermint oil, lemonade tree liquid, orange waterjuice and vitamin balls (whatever they are haha). The tiny particles of pumice do a great job of getting rid of dry, rough or dead skin. I personally have pale and sensitive skin so an awful lot of body scrubs often leave my skin a bright blotchy red and feeling sore and irritable, However I have been used this product multiples and it has done neither which is great. After I have used this product I can instantly tell the difference in my skin after one use (I am guessing this is down to the exfoliation of the pumice or the vitamin balls). The only down side to this product is that I only use it in the shower as the tiny particles of pumice gather at the bottom of the bath and don't leave a great feeling for the remainder of your bath, this could be resolved by using this product last (which I didn't when I tried). This being said I still love this product and now just use it in the shower as I have other exfolents  I can use in the bath.
The Fragrance of this product "Fruitigo Fragrance" lives up to the amazing scent of all the Soap and
Glory Products which is a massive part of why I love these products soo much. With Frozen yuzu, Orange oil, green fig and jungle pomelo essence it has a really fresh and "zingy" fragrance so I personally use in the morning as it perfect because of its bright scent and is super refreshing, it has a real "wake me up" feel to it. I would have to say that the dominant sent would have to be the jungle pomelo essence as their isn't a strong smell of orange oil which I love as I'm not a massive fan of orange scented wash or scrub products.
I would also say that because of it foamy soap like texture it could also act as a kind of wash as well (Personally I use both)
Like all Soap and Glory Products it is available at Boots with a £8.00 Price tag. For some people this may be relatively expensive for a body scrub (as it is for me) but a little goes a long way (especially as it foams up when added to water and worked into the skin)- two £2 coin sized pieces (3 at the max) should be all you need per go which I don't think is to bad!
I really advise that you give this product a go as it is amazing or at least pop into Boots and give it a sniff (like a weirdo ;) ) to experience the amazing smell which if your like me will probably tempt you to buy it haha

My First Blog Post...

So here I am writing my first ever blog post (exciting isn't it!). I have been toying with the idea of starting a blog for several months now but I  just couldn't pluck up the courage to start one myself because of that small chance that someone I know in real life would happen to come across it and judge me (stupid I know). But this morning I had a YOLO moment (did I actually just use YOLO? ohh dear) and thought "Why do I care what someone else would think of it?" so I'm not caring and going to do it anyway!

I will be writing about all manner of girly things (clothes, makeup, fashion etc) but I'm also planning to write about life in general and my opinions.

So here we go, I'm jumping in right at the deep end (splash!) and I hope that some of you will join be in doing so.

Also as I am completely new to this I would grateful for any advice/tips you could give me and would love to check out your blogs or blogs that you love, you could let me now by commenting below.
