Sleek & Barry M Dazzle Dust haulage

Yesterday I popped into my local Superdrug, which is an approximate 3 min walk from my house (dangerous) and came out with a few bits.

The guy at the till overcharged me and I had to go back and argue that I'd been charged for an extra Dazzle Dust which resulted in me being caught in the thunderstorm that hit us unexpectedly.

Despite having what was quite possibly the largest golf umbrella in London over my head, I still got wet, my flats were flooded, jeans soaked to my mid calfs and I didn't realise rain was leaking through the top of my brolly so my hair got wet too - arrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrgh!!!!!!

Grrrr! That'll teach me to pay attention when handing my card over for payment in future.

"It's raining, it's pouring ...."

Drenching aside, my new purchases soon distracted me after I'd dried myself off

Sleek Acid I-Dive Palette (LE)
Barry M Dazzle Dusts :

Top row: Old Gold (24), Pink Gold (3), Petrol Black (98), Crystal Blue (81)
Bottom row: Not on the website, both LE and can't remember the shade names!
Matte purple (LED2), Hot pink with very slight shimmer and almost matte (LED1)

LOVING Old Gold and the two LE dusts. Old Gold has the most amazing sparkle. My crap camera couldn't pick it up and I'd urge you to check this particular dazzle dust out for yourselves. It's beautiful. The purple is just what I've been looking for lately too - bright, intense and matte so I'm very pleased with that :-)

Sleek Acid palette swatches, courtesy of Miss Virtue/Patience @ The Virtues Of Beauty cos I'm feeling too lazy to swatch it again myself.

The 3 for £9.99 offer on Barry M Dazzle Dusts and Fine Glitter is still on in Superdrug & Boots so stock up while you have the chance.

Yay! New toys to play with :-)

I've not thought of it till now, but the LE purple DD looks like a dupe for MUFE's #92!

Belle Du Jour said...

LaaLaa Monroe said...

Yuuuuuup i love old gold dazzle dust. There dazzle dust's are def good for the prize in my eyes..and girl get to it with the sleek palette =]

Sarah said...

Nice! I missed the rain but I was watching from my window. Thunder and lightning too, I loved it but I don't envy you being outside in it.

Is Old Gold anything like MAC's Old Gold? I don't remember swatching it - it was kind of overshadowed by Petrol Black for me.

Also I agree about wanting to see some looks with the Sleek palette

Yinka (VexInThecity) said...

Doma-Nikki - I had a gay old time at the display swatching the dusts and glitters.

Mama Mish Mash - You'll be able to buy Sleek as soon as they go online. They'll be shipping to the States.

GWTGT - This is the 2nd week the offer's been on as far as I'm aware, fingers crossed it's still on come payday.

LaLaa - I'll do a look with the palette soon :-)

Sarah - It wasn't fun being outside in it. I thought I was gonna get struck by lightening!

I'm not sure re: Old Gold. I don't have the MAC one. The BM one is rally, really nice though. The sparkle is just mesmorising.

Will do an 'Acid' look, promise :-)

Helen said...

In love with the matte purple dust <3 Went to look at it in the flesh today with no joy.

Fab haulage, look forward to seeing the goods in action!

Yinka (VexInThecity) said...

@ Helen -If you want me to get you one, lemme know as my store had about 3 purple ones left.

Lisa said...

Fab haul, I love the look of that matte purple dazzle dust and the petrol black is already on my wishlist. Meant to pick it up the other day actually but forgot *grrrr* I have Old Gold and love it, sooo sparkly. One of my fave dazzle dusts actually, such a great colour.

Saw the neon palette in Superdrug and loved the look of it but there's just no way it would suit me - I bet the colours look gorgeous against your skintone though <3 I bet that pink dazzle dust looks fab too. Can't wait to see some FOTD's x
