Hiya Guys

Today I went shopping in Meadow Hall in order to buy my holiday clothes :D (4 weeks to go and then Cyprus here I come, eeeek :oD). Of course I accidentally on purposely ended up having a so called 'browse' in Superdrug (Yeah right ). This is where I discovered a whole new make up range called 'Sleek', that I some how haven't seen before today!

The variety of makeup available within this brand was quite vast and the prices were very affordable. I think the most expensive product was still under £10 which is fantastic, given the fact that majority of us gals are currently undergoing a Spending Diet :/

I decided to allow myself to purchase just one Item from the store (thats self disapline for you!), so my selection had to be a worthy one! In the end I selected a Divine mineral based eyeshadow palette in shade 'Storm'. There were 3 other palettes available but I opted for this one, as it consists of both neutral and smokey colours, which personally I Love with a capital L!

The shades are quite shimmery, but just the right amount in my opinion. In the past I have opted for Matt colours, as shimmers generally end up all over my face!? (We have all been there I'm sure lol). When I swatched the shadows when I returned home I was really surprised at how nicely pigmented the shades are. This is I think is mainly due to the soft mineral texture of the product which is all the range at the moment. The palette was an absolute bargain, costing just £4.87 would you believe! There are 12 shadows within the palette, a double ended sponge applicator and last but not least a large mirror. Now, I'm sorry but if that is not an absolute bargain, Then I really don't know what is :)

I have included some pictures above of the outer packaging, the palette itself and also some swatches of the shades included within the palette. I really think I will be making a return trip to Superdrug very soon, to buy some more product from this range.
I would be really interested to here if any of you guys have already tried these products or not, if so I would be really interested to here your view :)
