Sleek Make-Up have added to their hugely popular collection of spellbinding highlighters with the Distorted Dreams palette.  

Made up of five ethereal shades, 3 of which are cream and 2 powder formula, these light reflecting, holographic pigments have your every highlighting need covered.  


Sleek Distorted Dreams Palette, £10.99, Superdrug

With a glimmering variety of duochrome tones in its creamy shimmer shades, Distorted Dreams can be used to illuminate your cheekbones, eyelids and lips. Cream with green glitters, cream with blue glitters, and a gold and pink duochrome cream. The powder shades are amazingly stunning too; a shimmery gold powder and a pale pink with purple-pink glitters, which isn’t dissimilar to BECCA Prismatic Amethyst Shimmering Skin Perfector highlighter.

Matte Me Metallic Lip Creams combine the revival of the 90’s Metallic lip trend with the current liquid lipstick trend.


Sleek Matte Me Metallic Lip Creams (from top: Volcanic, Roman Copper and Rusted Rose), £4.99, Superdrug. 

Three new shades of metallic liquid lipstick are part of Distorted Dreams collection and they are called Volcanic (frosty muted purple toned rose), Roman Copper (red toned shimmery amber) and Rusted Rose (frosty pink rose).  


They apply like normal liquid lipsticks that dry down to a long lasting, velvet matte finish.  Applying a layer of lip balm before applying these will ensure extra comfort and stop the dreaded “matte lip crack.”

It’s time to embark on some colourful adventures this summer with the 12-strong Wanderlust collection from vegan friendly nail polish maestros Zoya.

I was mega excited to hear news of Zoya’s latest collection, which will be available on May 15 on http://www.zoya.com. Wanderlust boasts a bountiful array of colours that look as if they have taken inspiration from sunsets when there are lighter nights. Read on for a reveal of Zoya’s SS17 offerings!

WINNIE is a soft watermelon pink cream which isn’t too pale and isn’t too vivid, this could be the perfect pink for all year round.


BIRDIE is a bold, rich bubblegum pink cream. The type of standout fuchsia shade that has subtle blue undertones to it and would flatter cooler skin tones.


SONJA is a summery crimson red cream. A solid colour that resembles a red-toned pink with warm undertones.


MANDY is the ultimate shimmering berry pink. The soft shimmer turns Mandy into the ultimate glamorous pink with a mysterious depth.


ETSY is a playful looking yet muted fuchsia pink cream that shouldn’t just be reserved for a summer collection but all year round!


SAWYER is a soft taffy orange cream shade, a quieter neutral peach for those looking for a quiet summer mani/pedi.


CORA is the perfect coral cream for SS17, slightly bolder than Sawyer.


JOURNEY is a glimmering strawberry red that could span several seasons.  Very classic with a twist!


RIVER is a cool shimmering cobalt blue. River by name, river by nature!


LOIS is a magenta violet cream.  Zoya know more than a thing or two about creating the perfect tempting purple polish!


ARBOR is a rich olive green cream that may look an odd colour choice for summer.  Even though it resembles Army green, it’s a khaki shade that has been brightened up for the summer.


SCOUT is a fresh moss green that’s been awoken by added shimmer, similar to Arbor, this looks like a gold-toned olive.


There you have it, the Summer 2017 colour collection from Zoya.  If I was to pick a favourite that would be hard because there are several shades I have took a shine to already – River, Mandy and Journey, they’re definitely going right in my cart!
