The Stunning Sleek MakeUP Fall 2015 Collection and 24 Karat Gold Collection

I have some products from the Sleek MakeUP Fall 2015 Collection and 24 Karat Gold Collection to share with you today. I am so impressed with Sleek. I can't believe the quality of the products for the price. No wonder this brand is such a cult beauty lover favorite. I must say, I love the "sleek" packaging of the Sleek MakeUP cosmetics line. Matte black, slim lined, and sturdy. The Sleek MakeUP i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in Enchanted Forest ($11.99 US) is such a great eyeshadow palette for fall and winter. Inspired by a

My Recent Beauty Splurge | Huge Colourpop Haul!

Today the Makeup Wars team is sharing a recent beauty splurge. My most recent, and slightly heart stopping, splurge was on Colourpop cosmetics. I couldn't resist trying Colourpop any longer and placed two very large orders back to back. The Colourpop line is incredibly affordable but factor in the US to CAD exchange rate, shipping fee, duties and taxes, and the quantity of what I ordered and it turned out to be a very large splurge. I am not disappointed with my purchases. You really can't beat the price and the quality, shades,

The palette features a dimensional web of facets that shift in colour thanks to an oil slick effect metallic finish. It is so freakin cool. It comes with a zippered makeup bag that you can store the palette in, or use separately, that has
