Lipstick -Sleek MakeUP -Lip V.I.P. Lipstick

I bought this in Show Off, which is a soft burgundy/brown. I'm not totally set on the colour any more, I bought it while i was in an adventurous mood, but I hardly get a chance to wear it comfortable as it's a bit dark for me, but it does go nicely with my light olive skin tone.

It comes in a matte black case which feels secure although it doesn't have a "click" - I feel safe having it roll around in my bag!

It feels very comfortable on - it's not heavy, but you can feel it on and it has a nice creamy consistency but it doesn't slip or smudge.

The only problem with this is that the blue base comes through sometimes after wearing it for a long time and that can be hard to remove.

I would definitely buy it again though, it's a really nice formula and such good value. I'll be getting it in a few more colours.

Blush -Sleek MakeUP -MakeUP Blush - Rose Gold

on 10/14/2018 5:39:00 PM

I bought this because a lot of people say that it is a perfect dupe for Nars Orgasm, and I can't afford that stuff!

The packaging is nice, it comes with a little mirror in the compact, and doesn't come with a useless brush. Very cheap, nice formula.

The colour is like a soft peach and has a kind of gold sheen if you put a lot on. Good pigmentation.

The problem is that it shows up imperfections under my skin, even when I've covered them up with foundation, so I can't put it on unless my skin is flawless underneath.

Blush -Sleek MakeUP -Blush by 3 Sugar

overall: 10/10

I adore this blush palette. It's my everyday blush. I use all 3 shades often. The left and right shades are matte and the centre one is shimmery. All 3 apply evenly to the face and blend out beautifully. The shades are flattering on me also. It was a total impulse buy, I was in Superdrug and they were doing a buy 2 get 1 free on Sleek. Very serendipitous. It's an inexpensive product anyway.

Palettes -Sleek MakeUP -Ultra Matts V2

on 8/31/2018 4:46:00 AM

Sleek is known for having many shimmers in their eyeshadow palettes. Force of Nature had awesome matte colors, Ultra Matts V1, too and this one is no exception. They are not pigmented as heck, but buildable. They stay long on a primed eyelid. While doing a neutral eye makeup with their Ultra Matts V1 is not possible for everybody, many will find they can do natural makeups with V2. You can do a look for night and day. I'm not sure if it is still avaible though. I didn't find it online anymore, only in some exclusive online shops.

Palettes -Sleek MakeUP -Bad Girl iDivine Eyeshadow Palette

on 8/26/2018 3:24:00 AM

"Bad Girl" is a perfect eyeshadow palette for creating bold nighttime looks. Whether it's a dark, hot, smokey eye or a sparkling, noble look, you get both in one palette. Pigmentation ist very good and the colors are beautiful. I'm glad they made this permanent since it used to be limited edition. There was another one, "Good Girl", but that one was not as popular as "Bad Girl" (it had many reds and pinks -> even for me as a Sleek eyeshadow palette freak that's a no go). So look no further, grab this palette and get sexy!


Palettes -Sleek MakeUP -Arabian Nights #320

Tbh, I love and hate this palette. I want to wear it day and night, yet it offers me shades for nighttime. I don't rate it worse because of that. All shades are beautiful but if I wear this daytime it's too much. But if you like smoky colors have a lool at this gorgeous palette.

Palettes -Sleek MakeUP -Ultra Mattes V. 1 Brights

on 8/25/2018 5:00:00 PM

This is a great dupe for UD Electric Palette. Anyone who wants or needs bright colors, grab this palette. It doesn't hurt to spend max. 10-15€/$... on an eyeshadow palette which offers great quality. Pigmentation is very good plus all shades are matte, so I'm very happy with my purchase.


Palettes -Sleek MakeUP -Au Naturel

on 8/25/2018 4:50:00 PM

foto

This is one of my least favorite Sleek eyeshadow palettes. The pigmentation varies alot, the darker shades are the only shades that show up. Plus, the colors look very similar to each other. Overall, if you don't have much money but don't care about all these things, you can have a look at it. It was my first Sleek eyeshadow palette and thank God, I ordered some other of their eyeshadow palettes or else I would have said: Goodbye, Sleek.


Eye Shadow -Sleek MakeUP -idivine palette

I found my eyeshadow palettes which I'll repurchase again and again.
Many editions are in my home. Their limited editions are the best ones, I think. You have to be fast to get them. I recommend getting more than 1 LE-palette, at least one more. After it's sold out you're gonne have a hard time finding them on ebay or other online shops because Sleek eyeshadow palettes, LE or not, are very popular. I totally understand why:
POSITIV:
- good price (12 beautiful eyeshadows for under 15€/$/etc.)
- available in many shops
- great variety of themes/colors
- good quality
- mirror
- sponge applicator (just in case you forgot your brushes somewhere or want to try a new way of application)
- packaging of their LE are STUNNING

NEUTRAL:
- pigmentation varies -> shimmer shades are always a win, matte shades can vary alot in pigmentation

BAD:
- LE editions are very popular -> if you're too late, good luck finding them in unused condition

Overall, I must admit, I have a huge backup of Sleek eyeshadow palettes at home. For example: Arabian Nights -> opened/using 1 palette, 5 others are stored. Just in case Sleek decides to discontinue it.
If you're looking for a good drugstore eyeshadow palette, don't look further, just grab at least one. I recommend these from my heart:
- A New Day (perm.)
- Oh So Special (perm.)
- Arabian Nights (listed as LE, but I guess it's perm. now)
- Dream A Little Dream (LE)
- Bad Girl (perm.)
- Ultra Matte V1/V2 (perm.?)


Primer/ Corrector -Sleek MakeUP -MakeUP Colour Corrector Palette

For the price, this palette is pretty good! It is a touch oily and I found no use for some of the colours like the pink and blue, which I didn't know what to do with and just had to bin the palette after using the other colours because of this. The formula blends well, is not detectable under foundation, and did a good job of concealing my troublesome acne and eczema. Well worth a try!

Lips -Sleek MakeUP -Matte Me Metallics

foto

To finish off this look I prep my lips with some Vaseline and then apply the Sleek matte me liquid lipstick in metallic copperplate. I’ve always been a big fan of the Sleek matte me liquid lipstick and Birthday suit was my go-to colour, however, that is about to change! This metallic copperplate is rich in colour and sits perfectly with a golden makeup look. The lipstick is longlasting and glides onto the lip with ease and full coverage.

Lip Liners -Sleek MakeUP -Eau la la lip liner

foto

To emphasise my eyes further I go in with the Eau la la liner in white noise. The liner is highly pigmented and can be used both as an eyeliner or lip liner and is available in 20 shades. I use a white liner as it brightens up my eyes and as I have darker skin the white stands out on my skin tone. However, I have to go heavy with my mascara to blend in the white liner.

Highlighters -Sleek MakeUP -Barekissed Illuminator

foto

I then take the Basekissed Illuminator in the colour Casablanca and mix with my foundation and apply. Ilove using illuminators, especially in the summer as I want to have a dewy glow in the sun. The barekissed illuminator is filled with light-reflecting pigments which is suitable for all skin types and tones. However, I feel for this look I should have gone for a more golden tone that Sleek also as in their range. You can also use this illuminator after makeup on the cheekbones and body.

Primer/ Corrector -Sleek MakeUP -MakeUP Colour Corrector Palette

on 7/27/2018 2:14:00 PM

A respectable effort by Sleek to create an affordable colour correcting concealer palette, but unfortunately didn't suit my skin tone or type. There are 6 separate concealer pans in this, with colours as seen in the picture, and a mirror on the underside of the lid. The case is sturdy and closes securely, I've never had an issue with it coming apart and letting all manner of contaminants in to get stuck in the concealers. It comes sold in an outer cardboard covering with the shades listed on the back and what they're for, explaining the green for redness, lilac for dull/sallow areas, and orange and yellow for blue toned dark undereye circles. Forgot what it said about the blue and pink ones.

They are quite oily in consistency, this makes them easier to spread and blend and not just sit there like some bright green paste on your face, but as my skin gets very oily on my t-zone & undereyes, it won't stay in place and settles into crease lines. The other issue is that the orange shade isn't peachy enough to conceal my dark circles, and the pink is so light that it won't really mix to the salmon pink/apricot shade I need. Not that it would really help as this product just slides down over the day as it's so oily and collects into crease lines anyway. For similar reasons, the minty green one also doesn't agree with the red areas of my skin as they're in the t-zone, the oiliest parts. Wouldn't recommend for others with oily skin.


Lipstick -Sleek MakeUP -Lip VIP Semi-Matte Private Booth

on 7/27/2018 12:56:00 PM

I recently picked this up at the Walgreens and I have never disliked a lipstick as much as this one.
I picked up the light nude "Private Booth" the color was alright, almost too pale for me. I am very pale so this may not be an easy nude for many people to wear. But this review isn't about the color.

This is advertised as "semi-matte" but that is not true at all. Application feels like rubbing butter on your lips, which is great and all until you look in the mirror, and see how that looks. This has maybe a 10 min wear time before it looks terrible. It transfers onto everything and simply pressing your lips together can make thin patches. I can only imagine that the darker colors could be even worse, at least this one doesn't stain your lips. If this was a sheer tinted lip balm the formula would make sense, but because this is more tinted it just looks awful as it moves around. I don't know if the other colors have different formulas, but steer clear of "Private Booth".

Save yourself the grief and pick up something else! The color range was very basic, all of these colors can be found from other brands.
