Sleek MakeUp Molten Metal & Swatches

Afternoon sweethearts!

How are we all? Looking forward to New Years Eve?

As you can probably tell from the title, this post is dedicated to a new launch from Sleek MakeUp in the new year which is one of their Molten Metals.

This little beauty popped through my letter box on Christmas Eve so it was a lovely little festive surprise.
Molten Metal is a intense coloured cream metallic eyeshadow duo, which i am sure is going to be compared to the Illamasqua liquid metals as they are very similar. The Molten Metal is a long lasting cream which can be used on the cheek bones, the lips, the eyes and as a highlighter.
They are housed in a sturdy sleek packaging, with a mirror which is always a bonus.

The two shades are 'Cool Pewter' and 'Gold Leaf' which I'm sure will be perfect for Spring/Summer but feel as though these would have been perfect as a festive release. I must admit they are highly pigmented! I am yet to use them in a look but i will be sure to update you with the longevity.

Sleek MakeUp's Molten Metal launches on the 5th January 2011 and will be permanent. You can purchase yours for £6.9 from Superdrug Stores Nationwide as well as on the Sleek MakeUp Website.

Will you be picking up the new Molten Metals in the new year?

Liz Earle Conditioner for Dry/Damaged hair
 
Styling products:
Loreal elvive diamond hold hairspray & Aussie take the heat leave in sray & leave in cream (LOVE both of these, they smell amazing!)

None at the minute, but when i do it is the 3 minute miracle by Aussie :) (of course!)

Shower gel:
 Snow Fairy shower gel by lush - love this time of year so i can use this!
 
Body moisturiser:
Currently giving Liz Earles superskin body lotion a whirl
 
Deodarant:
 Nivea
 
Fake tan:
 None currently, i am feeling very pale at the minute but its too cold to apply! When i do its Xen Tan dark lotion! LOVE!

 
Face
 
Cleanser:
 Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish - There is no other!
 
Eye makeup remover:
 None - Cleanse & polish does the trick!
 
Exfoliator:
 I am using the Lize Earle gentle exfoliator which i am loving, can you see a pattern here?

 
Makeup
 
Primer:
I have a small sample of the MAC primer which i am currently using but dont really notice much difference so usually go without!
 
Foundation:
 I change between Nars Sheer Glow in 'mont blanc' to MAC studio fix fluid foundation in 'NC15'.
 
Foundation brush:
 I am using the Sigma F80 flat top kabuki to stipple on my foundation, then using the Sigma  F82 round top kabuki to buff my foundation in - love these brushes! Would highly recommend!
 
Concealer:
Not using any concealer at the minute!
 
Powder:
 MAC MSF Natural in Light/Medium - this is holy grail powder, no matter what i use i always come back to this
 
Blusher:
The Accessorize Blushes, these are gorgeous and super similair to the MAC mineralize blushes for a fraction of the price! Blog post coming soon
 
Bronzer:
MAC Mineralize skinfinish natural in Deep Dark - I find that this is a perfect bronzer for my skin tone and it is matte which i love
 
Highlighter:
 Not using a highlighter at the minute but when i do its usually MAC vanilla pigment
 
Eyeshadow base:
 MAC paintpot in painterly, i find that this primes my lid well and looks amazing under eye shadow and makes the colour stand out more

Eyeliner:
 The Illamasqua Precision Ink Liquid Liner - this is love, amazing product!

The Liz Earle Event!

Afternoon sweetpeas :)

How are we all? Hope you are well!

A few weeks ago i was invited to a Liz Earle event by the lovely Andrea over at Liz Earle. As you are probably well aware i am in love with Liz Earle products especially their cult classic cleanse & polish & of course their wonderful hair care! So i practically snatched Andreas hand off when she sent me the invite! I was literally so excited and couldnt wait!

It was to celebrate the opening of the first Liz Earle store up north, in Leeds to be precise and in the gorgeous Victoria Quarter!
Come Friday last week, 5 of us beauty bloggers met before the event to have a couple of glasses of wine and a bit of a chit chat before the event! We then hot footed it over to the store and met up with a fellow beauty blogger, Sarah!
L-R
Nicoletta, Ellie, Me, Charlotte & Emily
The gorgeous girls & beauty bloggers i met were:
Charlotte ♥
♥ Emily ♥
Ellie
♥ Nicoletta  ♥
♥ Sarah ♥

We were greeted with a glass of champers and asked to go upstairs where we were greeted with the rest of the team (& a stand full of cupcakes! Yum!)

Us girls were all shopped out and hand coats and bags galore! When i asked if there was anywhere we could leave our bags we left that near the wall and were told that they would bring up a security guard to watch our bags! You read correct ladies a security guard! My Louis Vuitton was very well looked after indeed!

Not 1...
But 2!
I especially love the picture of the view from their Isle of Wight store! Gorgeous!
Then the lovely Louise, who works alongside Andrea gave us a tour of the store and handed us a basket so that we could chose 5 products of our choice! Wow! Which were helped picked by Louise as she talked us through each product individually.

My picks were:
♥ Cleanse & Polish (A girl can never have enough!) ♥
♥ Superskin Body Lotion ♥
♥ Skin Repair Moisturiser ♥
♥ Deep Cleansing Mud Mask ♥
♥ Gentle Exfoliator ♥

Lucky lady or what? I have wanted a exfoliator to incorporate with my Liz Earle skincare routine for a long time so i am super excited to try that! Reviews to come of course!

Products chosen we then sat down in the chill out corner and got to meet THE lady herself, Liz Earle! Wow! Slightly overwhelmed, herself and Jennifer (The head of botanical research) talked us through the brand itself and the products. Liz and her team are all truely wonderful ladies and it was an absolute honour to meet them!


The store is absolutely gorgeous, based over 2 floors. Downstairs there is a quick stop area where you can grab and go where upstairs you can have a more thorough look round and there is even a library corner with lots of Liz's books, comfy chairs and also a tv!

When it was time to leave the lovely Jennifer packed up all of our goodies into a gift bag including a sneak peek of a new product that will be hitting the shelves of  the Liz Earle stores and online at the end of the month (just after christmas!), a Energising Body Lotion. I will be testing this out and a review will follow!

As you can tell i throughly enjoyed the event, i had a blast! If you are in or around Leeds i urge you to check out the new Liz Earle store! It is perfect! The staff within store couldnt be more friendly and helpful and the atmosphere is amazing!

Thank you again Andrea for the invite, the gorgeous girls i met on the day and of course all the team at Liz Earle!
