I'm sure you've all seen the outside of a sleek palette so there is no need for a picture, but this is what it contains. Ive lost the colour name sheet but im sure if you're interested you can google it. The first 3 colours in the palette are the more pinky/peach shades, and other than a couple of goldy nudes and the grey and black the rest are all peach or orange. There are 4 shimmer shades and 8 matte.
Swatches, 1st row:
As you can probably see from the swatches, the colour payoff varies from colour to colour. I think this is due to the fact that the matte colours have more payoff than the shimmery.
FOTD:Eyes: In my FOTD I am wearing number 2, 3 and 6 in the palette, along with a little Mac- Sushi flower in the crease. I also used the grey in the palette along the top and bottom lash lines. Face: Maxfactor weightless foundation- light ivory, Bobbi brown corrector and concealer, Mac cream colour base-hush. Lips: Gosh lip marker- 003 Berry

You may have seen the new Gosh lip markers advertised, and I'm sure you've all come across the maxfactor ones. I havn't tried the maxfactor ones (other than swatching) and to be honest when I saw the Gosh ones advertised at £4.99 each (with a 3 for 2 deal also on Gosh cosmetics) I decided to check them out. What I found is that the packaging and the colours appealed to me much more than the maxfactor ones which I havn't felt a particular urge to buy. I'm glad I made the purchase and I am also glad that I chose two such pretty, bold colours. And of course the gorgeous free nailvarnish was an added bonus.
The Sleek pout polish is something I have seen praised on Vivianna's favourite lipgloss youtube video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yVlROZfAK70&feature=player_embedded so I decided it was time to try for myself.
Gosh lasting lipmarkers in:004 Berry & 001 Red (although I would call it more of a bright orange/red)
Sleek pout polish- Electro peach
There is a reason that I put the Gosh markers and the pout polish in the same post, and that is because I discovered that Electro peach pout polish looks gorgeous over the Red (orangey) marker.
Im sorry I havn't done any photos with them on my lips, they are a little dry today but I can supply you with a swatch photo to demonstrate. (I do love the lipmarkers so I'm sure they will be featuring in up and coming FOTD'S)Left to right: Gosh lipmarker- Red, Sleek pout polish-electro peach, Electro peach over red marker. As you can hopefully see, layering the two enhances the colour and adds a nice gloss.
I love all of these Lip products, the markers are super-longlasting and the pout polish adds a subtle hint of colour with a pleasant scent. All 3 of these lip products will be becoming handbag regulars of mine.
And now for a pretty self explanatory NOTD:
Gosh nail laquer- 001 Lavender love
Such a pretty coloured polish. My first Gosh polish and I found it very easy to apply and so far no chips.

Left: Mac all that glitters, Right: Hush.
The shade of Hush reminds me of a Slightly lighter, pinker (and obviously cream) version of Mac all that glitters e/s. The two actually compliment eachother really nicely and I am wearing them both now :)
One thing that I really like about Mac's cream colour bases is that you can use some of them (including this one) on the lips and eyes as well as face. (there is a mini leaflet inside informing you which shades can be used where) This means for example that I could use a dab of Hush along the brow bone paired with All that glitters on the lid :)
Any of you tried Mac's cream colour bases?

-I have also been searching High and low for some yummy smelling coloured hair shampoo now my GHD stuff is reaching its end (I am brunette at the moment but considering a change back to red), and bored with what boots had to offer I turned to the internet where I found a cheeky Bedhead discount website. I chose the Colour godess shampoo & conditioner for brunettes & reds.
Verdict: The smell is AMAZING! smells strongly of caramel/ chocolate...i may have even tasted it. Leaves my hair soft as expected but a little greasy...but I think that may be down to my poor diet/how I'm styling it at the moment.
Now for the makeup part of this haul. I have also been searching for a natural, light-medium wear foundation and after swatching a few of the higher end and drugstore ones I stumbled apon Maxfactor weightless foundation in 40 light ivory. Being a sucker for a free gift I took advantage of maxfactors spend £15 and get a free makeup gift deal. (the foundation was £9.99 and I bought the pretty pink eyeshadow trio with it) the gift came in a naff makeup bag but did contain the three minatures in the pic above, which isn't too bad,Verdict:The feel of this foundation is pretty unique, it's really soft and I agree with the weightless description. The colour match for my skin is near perfect, which is hard to find as I am lighter than Mac's NW15. However, it did leave my skin a tad itchy. My skin is abit rubbish at the moment so I have discontinued use untill my skin clears up when I will do a propper review.
-And now for my favourite part of the haul! I was furious When lush discontinued the Sonic death monkey showergel so when I heard my Lush employee friend Kelsey http://glitterandgloss.blogspot.com/ was placing a retro order I had to get in on it. The parcel arrived today (there is nothing more exciting than opening a Lush package) and I was excited to see that Kelsey had thrown in a couple of treats, fizzbanger ballistic and Mask of Magnimity.
Verdict: Sonic death monkey remains a favourite Lush product of mine with is amazing terrys chocolate orange-esque scent. I would reccomend you buy it if it weren't so outrageously priced on the website :( as for the extras, they are right up my street! My skin was in need of a serious cleansing and I love the toffee apple scent of the ballistic.

As You can hopefully tell from the swatches below, this palette contains some really pretty colours. I noticed when swatching that the colour payoff is brilliant, I only had to lightly dab my finger in the product to get these swatched. Also they are super metalic, similar I suppose to Macs Mega metal eyeshadows. Cant wait to try these colours out on my eyes.
I really like this topcoap. The glitter flakes are irridescent and sparkle orange, yellow, green & blue when u move your fingers around. I coated this over Rimmel 60 seconds- deliciously dark (a matte colour)
Have any of you picked heard of of used any Andrea Fullerton polishes?
