Yesterday in Superdrug, I picked up an item I had been wanting to get for a while but never got round to buying. It's the Molten Metal Eyeshadow Duo from Sleek, and I got it in 'Pewter' (on the left) and 'Gold Leaf' (on the right).
Apologies for the bad light in the swatches. Winter light. Enough said. Typical Sleek packaging and a perfect size to pop in any makeup bag without taking up too much room. Perfect. I love golds and silvers at all times of the year, but throughout Christmas, there is no better time to wear a pop of glitter or shine, so I know these two shades will come in handy. 'Gold Leaf' is definitely a good name for the shade on the right. The pigmentation in it looks fab and really gives off the brassy gold you get with gold leaf. The 'Pewter' is also a good name, as it's slightly more tinny and has a bronze sheen to it. The texture of the cream shadow is soft and not too sticky like some cream shadows can be. The staying power seems to be quite good at first test but I reckon there will be some slippery creases along the way, but I will have to check that when I wear it tonight! It's my boarding house's Christmas formal dinner tonight, so I've got a new LBD to wear from Monsoon which is just lush, and I'm going to go all out on the makeup and lashes. Who says teaching staff can't look glam? ;) It's the last day of term at school today and I have teacher presents flying in all over the place. The festive cheer really is here and I'm loving it..but definitely can't wait for the holidays to start! One month..yes please!
Let me know what you think of the Molten Metal duos! I might get the silver duo if I like this gold one.
