Revlon Highlighting Palette.

The last few months or so I have really fallen for Revlon cosmetics.
The quality of the products are brilliant and affordable and I love the packaging.

Looking around in Boots a few weeks ago I caught sight of their new highlighting palettes.

Now, I'm a sucker for highlighting and have quite a few ranging from Benefit to MUA and Nars.
So I was all over this when I saw it.

I opted for Shade 002 - Rose Glow.
There is also another palette Shade 001 - Bronze Glow available, but I've tried hundreds of times to get a bronzer to look good on my face and it never works, so I decided to go for the flushed, shimmery look for the spring.

There are 5 shades in with this palette, which when swept together create a gorgeous healthy glow for your cheekbones and brow.

I have already used this palette so much already and my brush hasn't even made a dent yet, you really just need to sweep your brush across the palette and sweep over cheekbones and your brow.
The shimmer is really beautiful as well, not sparkly but very subtle.

Its such a lovely palette and really ideal for the Spring months coming up when you need that fresh faced, healthy glow.

These palettes retail at £8.99 each at all Boots stores and available online here.

Sleek i-Divine Vintage Romance Palette.

I've heard a lot of great things about Sleek and up until last week I hadn't bought anything from this particular range.
I originally went for their contouring palette after hearing good things about it and fancied giving contouring a shot, but alas, the palette was (and still a week later!) out of stock in both my Wolverhampton and Walsall Superdrug
So I started looking at the other products they had to offer.
I already have so many lipsticks to try out that I have bought the last few weeks so I thought I would give it a rest.
I have loads of eye liners and mascara's too so I skipped past those shelves.
The eye-shadow palette's caught my eye so I started pulling out the tester trays to have a look.
The first one I saw was called 'Garden of Eden' which were earthy greens, browns and a beautiful dusky pink.

But then I spotted this little beauty:

This is the Vintage Romance Palette.
I'm truly in love.

The packaging certainly lives up to its name, coming in a sleek black case, complete with a mirror in the lid and the eye shadows come in individual round discs.

The eye shadows themselves are very highly pigmented and are mineral based which I was pleased about.

Here is a little bit about the palette wrote on the Sleek website:

'Create stunning eye makeup with 12 shades of our super pigmented eye shadow. i-Divine palettes are suitable for all skin tones adding a touch of stylish sophistication to take you from day to night. Each palette includes a matte dark colour, ideal for definition or perfecting that classic smoky effect'

The shadows are absolutely beautiful and I couldn't wait to photograph them for this post.

Here are all the colours in the palette, with the names of the shadows which I loved:

 I have to say that at the moment 'Bliss in Barcelona' is easily my favourite, a shimmery purple which is simply gorgeous.

These palettes retail at £7.99 at Superdrug or on the Sleek website here.
The website also explains on the i-Divine section how to use the shadows and which ones are great for blending, highlighting and defining your eyes which I found really helpful.
 They are well worth the money and I will be purchasing the 'Garden of Eden' palette soon ready for the spring.

Have you tried the i-Divine palettes before?
What did you think of them?
