Sleek Circus

A while back I won the Sleek Circus palette from Simone. Thanks Simone! These shadows go on easily, blend well, and are super pigmented.
In each photo the top row is over primer and the bottom row is over bare skin.

The first shadow is a pale matte lilac, slightly lighter than these photos show, but closest to the flash pic. Then there is a bright, matte yellow (which goes amazingly with Fyrinnae's Bifrost to add some glitter); a matte white that doesn't show up in these pictures, but is somewhat visible in real life; and, a matte black that is incredibly pigmented and has amazing staying power (even on the waterline!). There is also a bright matte red that has some pink-orange undertones, but nowhere near as pink as the top photo or orange as the bottom.

This green is gorgeous. It's a light, pearlescent chartruese green that almost looks foiled when you brush it on. I'm not generally a green eyeshadow fan (although I loved it with my auburn hair) but this colour is an exception. Then we have a matte sky blue, nearly matte fuchsia, and matte bright orange.

The no-flash pic is super blurry but is does show the colours accurately (though not the finish). The blue is actually a bit darker and it is shimmery, and foil-y and another standout in this palette. The dark purple has that same finish. Last, but not least, matte medium pink.

The pearlescent green, dark blue, and dark purple are definitely my favourites in this palette. I always find myself saying I need more matte shadows but the shimmers, glitters, and metallics are always the ones that catch my attention.

Yesterday, I showed you one of my dogs and I don't want to play favourites, so here is the other. This is Sergeant (aka Sarge or, affectionately, Sargie Muffin). Yeah, I like giving my dogs cute (or annoying) nicknames.
Sarge is a four-year old boxer but still acts like a puppy. It can be tough to get a picture of him not looking goofy. Want proof?

They are amazing dogs. High energy and always getting into something, but also the biggest sweethearts.
