Makeup of the day — Sleek Bad Girl Palette 

So, I had a bit of a makeup fail today.  I tried out the Sleek Bad Girl eyeshadow palette today for the first time.  This was a gift from a friend and I was so excited!  I did not realize, however, that these are basically pressed pigments and SUPER rich and have tons of fallout.  It’s not the fault of the product, really; pigments are just like this!  But I had already done my foundation when I went crazy with the dark blue and purple colors in the palette…which blend much easier than I thought they would…and I looked like Tammy Faye Baker circa 1992.  NO, NO PICTURE FOR YOU.  (Kristin was dying.)

So, I took all my makeup off with some Simple Micellar Water and started again…and this time I used the less challenging silver and grey shades from the palette.

I still probably should have done my eyes first, but regardless, I had a much easier time using these shades.  Honestly, even as bold as I like to go with my makeup, the dark blue and purple in this palette are fairly impossible to work with because they’re so dark and become muddy easily if you blend a lot. Perhaps I can use them wet as eyeliner?

Here I am after my second attempt!


I’m in the U.S., so the only way to get Sleek that I know of is to order on Amazon, but I must say the prices are awesome!  I’m thinking of trying some other products.  Any suggestions?
