SLA is a range of professional, natural and organic makeup created by the French make-up artist Serge Louis Alvarez which is produced, manufactured and distributed from the South of France – Ooh La La.
The SLA Makeup Studio in Sydney is an Australian first, opening in 2009. Its home to an amazing array of SLA products which are available in a large variety of shades and colours and are richly pigmented as most of SLA’s products are of 55-60% pure pigmentation (anything over 60% is permanent) and claim to have great staying power.
After negotiating the city traffic I arrived at the event just in time for the makeup demonstration of the new Sunlight Collection set to be released for Spring/Summer 2011. I fell in love with this collection which screams summer with its mixture of blues, greens and a gorgeous vibrant orange which was demonstrated on fellow blogger Amy from The Makeup Case and made her blue eyes pop! Not a colour I would normally reach for but thanks to SLA I’m loving orange for summer.
I also loved the lip gloss duo palettes which can be worn separately or together to emphasize and create a fuller lip by outlining the lips in the darker shade and filling in with the lighter shade.

SLA have an amazing selection of professional and organic eye shadows that can be purchased in a pre packaged palettes or on their on. For the adventurous beauty, SLA also stock a funky range of chunky glitter pigments and shadows to create a glamorous stage look and I was also drawn toward the beautiful mother of pearl shimmering pigments which are made from crushed mother of pearl – very beautiful.
As I’m going through a lipstick obsession, I couldn’t leave the studio without purchasing a lipstick of my very own. I purchased number 11 from the Rich Bio Lipstick range which is created from all natural ingredients and is dusty pink rose colour - so far so good.

To end the day, the lovely girls from SLA provided us bloggers a gift bag which included a bronze Pulpy Gloss lip gloss (also from the Bio Organic range), a SLA French manicure kit and two pairs Lummiere Eyelashes – so a huge thank you to Hannah and Nicole from SLA :)
