A look with Humming Bird from Sleek Snapshots

Hello again!

I try not to forget my promises, so I would like to keep one I made to you guys in my Minty post from a while ago.

I promised to do a makeup look where the e/s Humming Bird from the Sleek Snapshots palette can shine in its full glory. Humming Bird is a beautiful satin finish aqua blue colour, which looks almost duochrome when you apply it. A bit if blue, a bit of green…It definitely deserved a special post!

I paired it with the Sleek eye dust Hypnotic which I swiped along the lower lash line, just to intensify the blue feeling of the look 🙂 (if I may put it that way). This is how it turned out:



Snapshots is like a box full of gems; each time I open it, I find a new treasure! Definitely a purchase I will never regret.

What I used:

  • Essence I love stage e/s base
  • Sleek Snapshots palette
  • Essence colour art pigment Be my Brightsmaid
  • Sleek eye dust Hypnotic
  • Essence eyeliner pen black
  • Max Factor black kohl pencil
  • Max Factor Wild Mega Volume volumising mascara

What do you think about this look? Do you like this colour combination?

Essence “Black Sparrow” colour art pigment look

And here it comes, my dramatic look for today!

I found another Essence pigment for an euro deal…what made me even happier (apart from the discount), is that this pigment seems to be a duochrome!!! 😀 I will not dare compare it to Blue Brown from MAC or Insomnia from MUG, at this point, because I don’t have either of those…but when I do, I will let you know whether the resemblance is indeed there.

I took out my Sleek Snapshots palette, put my new Essence pigment on the table, some falsies… and hoped for the best 🙂

This is the result:




And this last photo I add because I like the effect of the light.


The thing is that in real life the colour of this pigment seems different depending on the light you look at it…it can be sort of brown-grey-ish..or dark dark green. That’s how I see it at least..either that, or I am hallucinating 😛 I also think the base you use would make a huge difference. Here, I only used the e/s base…but on top of black, or dark grey…or white..who knows..I will try and let you know!

List of products used:

  • Essence I love stage e/s base
  • NYX JEP Milk (base for Sleek e/s)
  • Sleek Snapshots palette
  • Essence #20 Black Sparrow colour art pigment
  • Essence gel liner #05 Miami’s Ink
  • Catrice Glamour Doll volume mascara
  • Eye Candy False Lashes #003

Let me know how you like this look, and this pigment. Did Essence do a great job, or yes?! 🙂

See you soon!
