Hello my dearest ones,

did you have a good week? I definitely had a lot to do with my research paper and university stuff. I think I won't do anything this weekend although I had the time but I rather use them again for the paper and everything.. I just think I need the time to get to a good result. Although I must say I'm pretty confident now that I took the time and worked over the first try I did :)

Despite everything I finally managed to take some pictures to FIIINALLYY review the SLEEK OH SO SPECIAL nude palette. You remember when I went to London last September...? Naw, me neither. I promised you reviews but somehow.... winter came, it was dark for months and I never really managed to do it. My apologies! But here it is and I hope you find this helpful :)

The palette and swatches in same order. This palette contains of mostly nude and pink colors going darker with the last 4 colors. There are 4 shimmery ones and 8 matte shades. I have to admit that I loooove all the shimmer colors; the second from left are by far my most used allday shadows! I love the champaign and rosé with golden sparkles in it. Perfect for work, noticeable yet not too much! As for the matte nude colors, I dislike them a lot. All matte nude colors with exception of that one bright pink color (third from left) are extremely sheer; you can barely see them on your skin. Plus, the matte nude colors look like I had too dark make-up on :(  I sometimes use the pink color as a blusher because I think this color works better on the cheek than on the lids.
So, a YAY for the insanely beautiful and pigmented shimmer ones but a NAY for all the light matte colors (the matte black works fine as you can see :p )

I usually use one of the two light shimmer colors for work and blend a bit of that dark shimmer plum into the corner of my eye to deepen the look a bit. What I like about this palette is, that the colors work really well together! The only thing I really don't get... just WHY the hell did they put that chrome greyish blue color in the palette? It's a great color but seriously, it doesn't work with any other color despite the black. Don't get that.  Here's my everyday barista working look! :D

Sorry that it looks a bit uneven, the light was strange, as always u_u" You can see how I used the plum color on the right eye, somehow it vanished from the left one at least in the photo XD And I really need a new eyebrow pencil the one I have is too dark >_< But since I'm basically broke in March such things will have to wait til April :'D So this is how I look everyday when I have to work and have no other inspiration. We shouldn't habe too much make-up at work but I can't live without eyeliner. I think I may have used eyeliner for 5 years straight now, without any exception ^3^ And I just love that eyeshadow color, it's so pretty! And it looks so natural! I usually don't tend to natural things but for work, you know...

Hope you liked this very very belated review! Next one will be a super nice recipe and the story why I fail at making cupcakes. Yes, I do. But I managed it, somehow. I will work today and tomorrow so hopefully I'll talk to you guys soon! 

Much love & See you soon,

oh, hello there. i'm yasuhiro mochizuki and i'm the cool kid who made this layout. i'd rather you not attempt to take this code and alter it or take this code, strip it down, and use it as a base code. if you really need a base code that badly, feel free to send me an email with what type of base code you need and we can talk about it. that said, i can't take credit for absolutely everything here. so here are all the dope resources i used here: all of the fonts used in this layout can be credited to google fonts save for calibri, which is a system font. the social media sidebar links were created using an icon font from we ♡ icon fonts. most scripts used can be found through a good google search, except for the script that gives the page it's tabs; i don't remember whether i hand coded that or if i found it through another blogger. if you're privy, you can find me predominantly on twitter and occasionally on my blog. toodles!
