Sleek Face Form Blush and Contouring Palette

I can't seem to get enough of the Sleek Face Form Blush and Contouring Palette lately and have been using it religiously since I got it. The powders are soft and pigmented and blend easily and the palette itself is so compact it fits perfectly in my makeup bag. 

The bronzer is mostly neutral with a slight red undertone - this only became noticeable when I used it as a brow powder. I use this bronzer as a natural everyday eyeshadow also so it is definitely a multi use product. The highlight shade is quite subtle but build-able  for a more glowy finish. 

My least favourite of all three is the blush shade as it contains flecks of shimmer and is slightly less pigmented than the other two powders and you need to apply much more to achieve the same colour pay-off. However, in spite of this the Sleek Face Form Blush and Contouring Palette is a current beauty favourite of mines! You can buy it on Superdrug for £9.99.

MUA Velvet Lip Lacquer

Whilst going in to repurchase my favourite liquid concealer by MUA, I was intrigued by their Velvet Lip Lacquers. They have a fantastic shade range and are from the MUA Luxe line so the packaging is much more sleek than the standard range. I decided to buy Dare, a berry purple shade, and Reckless, a classic dark red. I also loved Kooky, a grey toned purple colour, but unfortunately it was out of stock. These are quite easy to apply and very matte. However they feel quite drying on the lips in comparison to the Maybelline Velvet Lip Pencils which feel much more smooth and creamy but have a very matte finish. I would definitely recommend applying a thin layer of lip balm over the top of the MUA Lacquers for a smoother consistency. MUA is available in Superdrug and for £3 they make a brilliant stocking filler for Christmas!
