The Sleek Series: Hard as Graphite

24 Apr

Another palette, another eye make up. Actually, the i-divine palette in Graphite isn’t one of my favourites. No, it’s not due to the quality, which is perfect as always. It’s just because the majority of the shades are too dark or let’s say they aren’t deep set eyes friendly. Honestly, it’s a pity as the consistency of all eyeshadows is amazing again. Believe me, I can’t complain about any shade. But don’t be wrong, I try to use all colours as they are no make up limits. Especially the purples are HOT and yeah, I can’t wait until Sleek Make Up releases a mere purple coloured palette with a dupe of MAC’s Young Punk mineralize e/s. 😉 Anyways, on to the pics!

By the way, enjoy your weekend, guys!

Auf Deutsch: Eine andere Palette, ein anderes AMU. Tatsächlich zählt die Graphite Palette aber nicht zu meinen Favoriten. Keineswegs liegt dies in der Qualität begründet, die wieder einmal perfekt ist. Es liegt eher daran, dass die Mehrheit der Farben zu dunkel geraten sind bzw. nicht für tiefliegende Augen geeignet sind. Dies ist besonders bedauerlich, da die Textur wieder unglaublich ist. Ich kann mich ungelogen über keine Farbe beschweren. Aber denkt jetzt bitte nichts Falsches, ich versuche weitestgehend alles Nuancen zu verwenden, weil ich keine Grenzen bzgl. Make-up kenne. Speziell die großartigen Lilatöne haben es mir angetan und ja, ich gestehe, dass ich es nicht abwarten kann, bis Sleek Make Up eine Palette mit unterschiedlichen Nuancen von Lila herausbringt, darunter auch ein doppeltes Lottchen des MAC Young Punk Minerallidschattens der Style Black LE. 😉 Wie wär’s mit Bildern? Genießt übrigens Euer Wochenende!

    Hey dear!! Thanks for getting back to me! The nail design is pretty easy to do, it’s just a stamp, no skills needed!! You should try it yourself! =)
    Ofc that I had to go and like a palette that’s a 4day limited edition! xD Have you ever ordered from online before? Do you know if it’s safe?

    Graphite isn’t one of my fave palettes either. I didn’t get it because the colors look too similar for my taste but wow, that purple is so pretty! And I love what you did with the palette, the look is amazing as always.

    actually i got my eye on this palette 1st in superdrug in the x’mas before last, as i was very into smoky eyes at that time. lol

    This is a Sleek palette I don’t have yet as I thought the colors where so similar to eachother, but the look you created now shows me that it’s worth to buy 🙂

    @ Andreia: Thanks so much!

    @ Gio: Thanks, dear! Yeah, you’r absolutely right. The grey shades are very similiar but the puples are the real winners of this palette. But is ist worthwile to buy one palatte just for 3 colours? No, I don’t think so. 🙂

    @ Kyanvi: *lol* Are you still into smokey eyes? Hope not.

    @ Kim: I’m curious to see a look done by you if you order it!
