Urban Decay 24/7 Glide-On Eye Pencil

Described on the Urban Decay site as; The best Eye Pencil ever, ever, ever! Never before has a pencil this creamy and brilliant been waterproof, too. Velvety-soft, this never-before-seen formula stays soft and creamy for blending (about 30 seconds), then dries down to a long-lasting finish that WILL NOT budge. These eyeliners pretty much do what they say on the tin.

They come in a really good range of colours, from super bright and bold to more subtle neutrals, all of which I happen to own:

They are super easy to apply, have great colour payoff, blend nicely and last for ages once they set. As well as being available individually (£10), you could also buy two sets, each containing 5 pencils, but these seem to have been discontinued now.

Definitely well worth investing in if you are after a decent eyeliner, and probably the only eyeliners I will ever fully use up before getting bored or fed up with and moving onto something new.

Now if they would just hurry up and release the 3 new colours over here that they have in America, I'd be content.

Sleek iDivine Palettes

I found Sleek MakeUP a while back, rather by accident. Superdrug started stocking their products and I spotted a cheap and brightly coloured eyeshadow palette so thought I would give it a go.

It was this one, the original palette;

For under £5 you really can't go wrong, long lasting, bright colours that last really well and are very blendable too.

Best of all Sleek bring out Limited Edition palettes regularly which are the same quality and price but different themes, and therefor colours.

The most recent being Curious, shown below:

The previous edition, Safari, was also lovely and a touch more bold but still wearable, Neon. I'm still gutted I missed out on getting my Neon palette, but I suppose 3 will do for now.

I can't recommend these palettes highly enough, they're great quality, great colours and best of all a great price.

Everyone should have one, at least!

Pie's Eyes - A Fresh Start!

Some time ago, while spending a lot of time on Specktra, I decided to start a a blog with pictures of my eye make up each day, cleverly I managed to forget the log in details and can't work out how to add to it now, so, since I have decided I quite fancy muttering on about my make up again, I thought I'd start afresh here, hopefully this time I will be able to get back in and keep posting.
