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?
