Sleek Blush By 3 palette in the shade 'Pink Sprint 366'

 I'd never tried a blush by Sleek before, so being a blush obsessive, I felt like it was time to try one and get my first blush palette. I chose a more berry pink toned palette called 'Pink Sprint'.

 As you can see by the packaging, Sleek really does live up to its name...incredibly slim and delicate packaging.
 I thought the names of the blushes were adorable and were fun. Nothing worse than numbers or unoriginal names for beauty products. Sleek did a great job here!
 Here are the colours in the palette. My favourite is the one on the far right which appears to be a mix of the two shades on the left of it. It's a wearable berry pink tone which would be perfect for Autumn/ Winter seasons. The bright pink shade in the centre, 'Pink Ice' is the most neon of the trio and would be amazing for Spring/Summer times. These shades are so wearable and diverse, that they could even be used as eye shadows!
 These are extremely pigmented. I was in shock at how strongly coloured these were. They're easy to work with, blendable and have a lovely smooth and creamy texture. No chalkiness! The blushes are long lasting and don't smudge. I tend to find that some blushes and eye shadows tend to fallout or drop onto other parts of your face - these definitely don't do that! I would say however, that you should apply these lightly and then build them up! Don't go in heavy-handed or with your brush loaded or these will definitely be difficult to work with or blend out for a more natural look.
 (L-R) Pink Parfait, Pink Ice, Pinktini.

As you can see they are bright in colour and easy to blend! I think that Pink Parfait might be a struggle to wear for paler and fairer skin tones such as myself, but the other two shades are perfectly wearable!

This was originally retailed at £9.99 however, it was on the Sleek website sale for £4.99

70's Fashion trend

It's a blast from the past! It seems that we're in a time warp and we're back in the 1970s. It's the return of the platform, suede mini skirts and crochet. 70s fashion has made a return and it's time to embrace it!

Here are some of my top picks from the latest fashion trend.

Boots Essentials: 3-minute clay mask (Cucumber for all skin types)

I've not usually been one for face masks. The effort, finding the right one and most importantly, discovering a face mask that doesn't give my extremely sensitive skin a reaction is often a big problem. After using a fruit peel mask as a teen and having bright flushed cheeks liked I'd been slapped on either side of my face, I've tended to avoid them...for obvious reasons.

However, since my exam-fuelled, stressed-out and tired, dry skin has been a pain recently, I decided to give face masks one more chance. So I took a little wander into Boots and spotted this £1.50 beauty.

This refreshing cucumber mask is the best thing I've ever used. It's perfect for leaving me with hydrated and soft skin, as well as not irritating or burning my face. It's easy to clean off, which I often find is a major pain with face masks as they are too stubborn on the face. As well as this, it also gives me a great laugh staring at myself in the mirror as I apply this. Everyone looks hilarious wearing a face mask.

If you have sensitive skin and are desperate for a face mask, don't let the fact that it's not branded put you off. This is a total skincare gem!
