Swatch & Review - Sleek Lagoon (Aqua Collection)

     Hello, ladies.

     Sleek has launched this spring a new limited edition makeup collection called Aqua. The collection is comprised of a palette - Lagoon, a blush - Mirrored Pink and four nail polishes - Tropic, Pink Mirage, Deep Coral and Cote d’Azur, together being called Deep Waves.
     If the nail polishes didn't tempted me, I couldn't say no to the palette and the blush, and today I'm gonna talk to you about the first one. 
     Honestly, Lagoon has been a real pleasant surprise for me, especially since the eyeshadows look a lot better applied on the lid than in the palette. 

     Sleek a intampinat aceasta primavara cu o noua superba colectie editie limitata, intitulata Aqua. Colectia contine o paleta -  Lagoon, un blush - Mirrored Pink si patru oje – Tropic, Pink Mirage, Deep Coral si Cote d’Azur, impreuna purtand numele Deep Waves.
     Daca lacurilor de unghii le-am spus pas, n-am putut rezista sa nu-mi cumpar paleta si blush-ul, iar astazi am sa v-o prezint pe prima dintre ele.
     Va spun sincer ca Lagoon m-a surprins mai mult decat placut, mai ales ca unele farduri arata mult mai bine aplicate pe pleoapa decat in paleta.

     As usual, the palette has 12 eyeshadows, all very pgimented. Lagoon has aquatic shades of blue and green, a few complementary shades of purple and neutral, but also a few bright colors which "spice" up the palette. Overall, Lagoon makes me think of an exotic beach, with clear water, bright bikinis and beach dresses and colored cocktails. 
     I love the mix of colors because the bright shades are not neon, but very wearable, perfect to make your eyes pop out especially if you're tan.
     Sassea, Reflection, Emerald, Pink Jewel, Sand Dollar and Underworld are immery shades, Deep Water, Night Sky and Arie are matte, Black Pearl has a hint of shimmer, and Oyster and Sea Shell are metallic. As far as I think, the only shade they screwed up is Ariel: her hair is a birght red, while in the palette we have a more coral one.

     Ca de obicei, paleta contine 12 pastilute cu farduri, toate foarte pigmentate. Lagoon are nuante actavice de verde si albastru, cateva nuante complementare de mov sau nuante neutre, dar si cateva culori puternice pentru a "da viata" paletei. Per total, Lagoon ma duce cu gandul la o plaja exotica, cu ape limpezi, costume de baie si rochite in nuante vii, cocktailuri frumos colorate…
     Ador mix-ul de culori pentru ca nuantele puternice nu sunt neon, ci sunt cat sunt se poate de purtabile, perfecte pentru a-ti scoate privirea in evidenta, mai ales atunci cand esti bronzata.
     Sassea, Reflection, Emerald, Pink Jewel, Sand Dollar si Underworld sunt nuante shimmery, Deep Water, Night Sky si Ariel sunt mate, Black Pearl are o idee de sclipici, iar Oyster si Sea Shell sunt metalice. Singura nuanta cu care au dat-o in bara ar fi Ariel: parul ei este un rosu aprins, in timp in paleta gasim un rosu mai mult corai.

     About the texture, the matte and shimmery shades are creamy, while the metallic ones are kind of "waxy", similar to the ones in Sparkle 2. On the other hand, I think they blend easier than the eyeshadows from other Sleek palettes. 
     Without a primer that last up to 5 to 6 ours, and if you use a primer they last about 10-12 hours.

     Ca si textura, fardurile mate sau shimmery sunt cremoase, in timp ce metalicele par a fi mai degraba “ceroase”, la fel cum mi s-au parut a fi si cele din Sparkle 2 (review AICI). In schimb, mi se pare ca se blenduiesc mult mai usor comparativ cu fardurile din paletele anterioare.
     In ceea ce priveste rezistenta: fara primer le veti avea pe pleoape circa 5-6 ore, iar cu primer pana la 10-12 ore.
     Daca va doriti paleta, Lagoon este disponibila pe MakeupShop.
