Peachy, Peachy, Peachy FOTD

Hello Ladies,

On Saturday I decided that I want to experiment with Sleek's Avoir la Peche Paraguaya palette again. I briefly mentioned that I'm not that impressed with it before and I still stand by what I say. Mostly it is because most of the shades are matte, and I HATE matte shades with a passion! The color payoff on two of the shades was not great either, at least on my skin... and I was trying to use those shades! BUMMER!

But regardless, I decided to do an unthinkable and use ALL matte shades for Saturday's look! 

My unimpressed look

I used Redstone all over my lid, Blush in the inner corner, Cameo on outer corner/side, and Stone for bottom lash line and eyeliner. The shades I tried to use but failed were Sandstone and Bittersweet. Boo.

I've read at some blogs that this palette might look best on darker skin tones, but I disagree. I think it will look great on fair skin tones too with the right application (which I clearly had not mastered). Next time I will try using some of the shades as blushes, I think they will work great with my skin tone :)

What do you think? Will you be buying this palette or do you own it already?

  1. I bought this palette too and I LOVE it (but I love mattes). Oranges, corals and peaches are also some of my favourite colours, too. I suppose they would make good blush colours. This is only the third sleek palette I've bought - acid and sunset being my others... I bought those for the oranges, too, that's a weird realisation.
    Keep the looks coming lady x

  2. Ruthy, I'm a Sleek fiend lol. I bought every single palette I could find since November, and even ordered some off Ebay. I might be missing 1 or 2.. I love oranges too, Sunset is my fav so far :) But I love them SPARKLY lol. Well, I love reds for eyeshadows period :)

  3. I love the look, the colors work so well together.

    I don't have the palette!

  4. I know I won't be buying this palette. None of the colors would work on me at all. :(

  5. Love the colour combo, and the mattes look great!

  6. I like it :)
    I want this palette!
