Today's post has two looks, Sleek Original, Safari and Sunset palette swatches, and MAC Pandamonium palette swatches.
So I'll start with my yesterday's look, I wanted to try if Violet Trance really was so bad as I've heard.
Well, it mostly is. Sure the color is awesome, but it's REALLY hard to work with.
But anyway, here's the look:
MAC Painterly paint pot
NYX Jumbo pencil Milk
MAC Violet Trance (lid, blended upwards)
MAC Cloudbound (highlight)
Deep Plum gel liner from MakeupGeeks Store (upper lashline, waterline)
MAC #34 lashes
Make Up Store Virgo glitter
But how about the Pandamonium palette then?
I actually bought it just because of the Violet Trance, but there is also 3 other shadows.
They are :
Cloudbound / Up At Dawn
Violet Trance/ Pandamonium
Up At Dawn is kinda similar with Seedy Pearl, except that Up At Dawn is more lilac than Seedy Pearl which is more pink.
Violet Trance is, like said, very hard to work with. It isn't very pigmented, and it's really hard get color out of it. It has the same problem as MAC's Full Force Violet pigment. Sure it sticks better with ie. NYX jumbo pencil, but that technique is problematic too: if you apply it over NYX Milk, it changes color. It kinda gets "wet", and the color darkens a lot. You then have to try to add a dry layer over it.
Pandamonium is really pretty metal grey with silver sparkles. Really close dupe to UD's Gun Metal.
Over all, I think it's a great palette, even though Violet Trance isn't very good, but it's still awesome color.
Then my Sleeks.
I've heard so much good from these, that I just had to try them.
And when Elle In Wonderland had a blogsale with 3 Sleek palette, I know my chance had come.
So I got the MAC palette, and Sleek Original, Safari and Sunset.
Before I say anything else, I wanna say that I've probably never seen eyeshadows that would be as pigmented as Sleek's.
Really the pigmentation is amazing.
So here are the palettes:
Not only the colors are really pigmented, they are also really pretty. My favourite is Sunset, I just LOOOOOVE the red and orange from it. They are seriously amazing.
Also, they all have black shadow, so you basicly have all eyeshadows you need in one palette. Except that Sunset hasn't got a decent highlighter. :/
AND good news for people outside UK!

I sure checked their site, and now I have their Bohemian palette, as well as the Acid palette on the way:

But then to my today's look.
I wanted to use both Pandamonium and Sleek Sunset, so I came up with this:
Not so gothic:
It's really a combination of everything :D
MAC Blackground paint pot (lid)
MAC Pandamonium e/s (lid)
