sleek contour kit

If you read my latest high street beauty haul (catch up here) then you’ll have seen that I picked up the new Sleek Cream Contour Kit. I was so happy when I heard Sleek were bringing this out as I’d always wanted to try cream contouring but I could never quite justify the £39 price tag of the Anastasia Beverly Hills version when I had serious doubts it was going to work for me. There was just something about cream contouring that seemed much scarier than using a powder and so

You know those days where you just want to sit and cry and you have absolutely no idea why? On Saturday I had one of those days. I love Saturdays, especially now I work full-time because I look forward to them all week long but last Saturday just wasn’t my day at all. Everything just seemed to be going wrong and so I thought what better way to cheer myself up than with a trip to Boots! I can never ever go into Boots and come out with just one

My room has undergone a much needed revamp which involved me saying goodbye to not so attractive purple walls and hello to the cutest grey patterned paper and lots and lots of white! In the process of the revamp I had a bit of a makeup clear out well, when I say ‘clear out’ I actually couldn’t bring myself to throw anything away really, even parting with that lipgloss I never even use was just too heartbreaking to do…anyone get like this?!

My makeup bag is such a mix of high-street/drugstore and high-end products and although I use both in my daily makeup routine, you can’t beat the feeling when you find a high-street product that works just as well or better than it’s pricey alternative.

As soon as I saw a picture of Sleek’s latest addition; the Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette, I just knew I needed it in my life. Eagerly awaiting it’s arrival in store, as soon as I heard it had hit Boots, I headed straight there and managed to bag one of the last ones on the shelf. As a girl who is completely obsessed with highlighters (my highlighter collection has a makeup bag of it’s own…), I fell in love with the gorgeous shimmery shades in the Solstice palette almost instantly

I pretty much spend half my life in Boots and Superdrug these days. Those naughty 3 for 2 or buy 2 for £14 deals are forever catching me out. Even if I walk in needing just one product, about 9 times out of 10 I’ll end up convincing myself that one thing definitely isn’t enough and it’s a far better deal to buy at least 3…Then again, when it comes to makeup, I don’t take much convincing. For a high-street makeup haul with a mixture of new purchases and repurchases,
