Oh no, Not my shade and it's a little too pigmented for my taste. As the colour dries it changes shade slightly. it does look ok with a thin layer of lipgloss over it.


Lips -Sleek -Matte Me Metallics

I have been hunting for the perfect shade of lipstick for years. I have tried liquid lipcolours like this one before but so far this is Sleek's most innovative range. It seems like they are still releasing colours or it may have taken a while for them to hit the shelf. I first saw this range in the shades Roman copper, Anodized Ruby and Volcanic. I bought all three but Roman Copper did not work well with my skintone at all. Volcanic and Anodized Ruby are lovely shades, Volcanic is very sheer and gives a subtle iridescent glow. (There is a reason why Im describing the colours that I will get to in a sec) Anodized Ruby is perfect for the festive season but it tends to get slighty darker as it dries and its more pigmented than some of the other shades.
A few weeks later they had added Molten Topaz and Electroplated Nude to their collection. Molten Topaz is a sheer red shade with golden overtones and Electroplated nude is a pink shade also with gold overtones making it a soft warm rose-gold. These matte metallics look a some what different in real life than they do in the picture on Sleeks website, or on other internet retailers pages. I would highly recommend checking-out the product in store before ordering anything online. If that's not possible try to find pictures of actual swatches of the product I have included one here. The lip-cream consistency is good and it doesn't flake and crack. The applicator in the bottle picks up way to much product in order for it to be effective, so its best to use a lip brush. My personal favourites are Molten Topaz and Electroplated Nude they work really well as "day" colours. Volcanic is nice for a wintry frosty/ powdery look. They have added even more shades but they are too dark and too "cool" for me I have a warm undertone to my skin.
These colours are as described on the packaging: Matte Mettallic so they are not overbearingly bold or garish and I think some shades will complement mature skin.


Makeup Brushes -Sleek -7 Piece Brush set

This brushet is great if you are a makeup noob like me. I was drawn to it because it has narrowed it down to the 7 most essential brushes, which avoid confusion if you are just learning about makeup application. The brushes are of a decent size and quite easy to clean. Im not a big fan of the size of their eyebrow brush, way to big and long for my personal taste but all in all its money well spent. Also makes for a great budget gift for a young lady i her mid teens



The set contains 7 handy brushes of synthetic fibers.

Foundation brush
Perfect for use with all liquid foundations.
To achieve a flawless complexion, apply foundation using the brush, ensuring you buff and blend as you go to avoid any harsh lines.

Powder brush
Perfect for use with all pressed or loose powders.
To set and complete your flawless finish, sweep the desired amount lightly over the face for an even, smooth natural finish.

Blush Brush
Ideally used to apply your blush. For a perfect application, gently sweep the colour to the apples of your cheeks for that all day long rosy glow.

Eye Shadow Brush
Perfect for use when applying eyeshadow.

Eye Contour Brush
Perfect for use with applying eyeshadow, and creating contour across the eye area.

Eyeliner/Brow Brush
Add definition to eyes and brows using this angled brush designed for ultimate precision.

Lip Brush
Perfect for when applying lipgloss or lipstick. For a perfect pout, apply a small amount of product to moisturised lips, building up the colour as desired.
How to use
Brushes need to be cleaned once every 8 weeks to maintain the quality of your 7 Piece Brush Set, and for hygiene purposes.

Highlighters -Sleek -Barekissed Illuminator

A good illumintor for glowing dewy cheeks. Its great value for money I find it a little difficult to apply Its very light but with a bit of patience it works well. I prefer wearing it over my blusher for a subtle highlighting effect.
Love the product but not too keen on the consistency


Foundations -Sleek -CC Cream

on 11/8/2017 6:07:00 PM

I recently bought Sleek CC cream in Medium and so far Im really impressed. I have been hunting for the perfect foundation shade and found this product in superdrugs. Its almost a perfect match to my skin. Its a really good quality cc cream. Its light weight and it gives a velvety/dewy finnish. I apply it with a beauty blender on clean, moisturised and primed skin. Its perfect for barefaced "makeup-no makeup" look. I actually prefer this one instead of foundation.
Great for those who are aiming for a natural airbrushed look and I can highly recommend it for those with darker skin tones. Some cc creams can give a slightly white cast and a lot of flash back. But this cream actually add warmth and radiance to the skin.
Great value for money and I will definitely purchase again

Brows -Sleek -Brow Kit

on 11/7/2017 7:40:00 PM

I love it. For a skin tone like mine or similar to mine I'd recommend using the colors Black or Extra Dark.

I use the color in Black and it doesn't wash me out or look too strong or too thick. The formula seems to be quite long lasting even through my oily skin and my perspiration. The two tiny little brushes in the kit are the key. They seem fiddly or awkward but they do give you the very natural look.

I bought the Sleek Makeup Brow Kit because although I do love Kevyn Aucoin The Precision Brow Pencil in Dark Brunette it is quite a splurge.
Sleek Makeup Brow Kit does have lovely packaging and a mirror and mini tweezers along with the two mini brush applicators.

I wear Nars Velvet Matte Skin Tint in Seychelles.

Palettes -Sleek -Ultra Mattes V. 1 Brights

on 11/4/2017 8:57:00 PM

I love Sleek as a brand. Their blush and eyeshadow anyway - since that's what I own. This is one is my most disappointing purchases though.

I have semi-hooded eyes and I bought this mainly to blow out all over my hood-crease. It does fine at this.

Where it breaks down is when you build it up to full intensity (white powder base and multiple layers), it fades badly within a few hours. If you wear it as an all over look it also looks wet and creasy all around the crease area. I have oily lids so I always wear primer.

So, I will look for better bright mattes (likely more expensive - these are terribly affordable) when I run out of these...if I can find any! Taking suggestions for when that day arrives.

Highlighters -Sleek -MakeUP Solstice Highlighting Palette

This product is grotesque. I'm shocked at the glowing reviews. All the highlighters look the same, silver. I expected to see some of the purple or orange that you see in the pan, but they all just look straight up silver when swatched or on the face. They're VERY glittery and chunky and don't blend well at all. They're very patchy when applied and have a dry texture, they feel like sandpaper, honestly. I returned it immediately after one use. If I hadn't bought it from Walgreens I'd honestly think I'd purchased a fake. It was THAT bad.

Lipstick -Sleek -Matte Me in Birthday Suit

I don't like it. Bought it based on raving reviews online. Firstly, I strongly dislike the shade. According to the reviews I read it was supposed to be a nude shade, mine is very pink. The applicator is loo long and not good, although it does help with a precise application, I don't like it. It's not longlasting as it flakes off. Very uncomfortable on the lips.

Not impressed. Expected a lot more based on reviews of Sleek eyeshadow palettes. It's a very dry and powdery formula with some fallout. Pigmentation is dissapointing. It's really a shame because this palete looks beautiful and has a lovely diverse shade range. I never reach for it.

Highlighters -Sleek -MakeUP Solstice Highlighting Palette

This looked so beautiful when swatched and I loved the colors! Also, beautiful packaging and amount for the price. BUT- it emphasizes everything on my skin. dry patches, pores, redness. I do have dry skin but this does not happen with other highlighters but with this one. I also feel, that this removes the foundation underneath. I really wanted to like this- i feel like you need flawless,perfect skin to make this wearable..

Blush -Sleek -Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette

I have this in Medium, which I feel is a better fit for my colouring than the Light kit would have been. The first time I tried this kit, I was a little dumbstruck at the quality... and then deflated. It is SO. MUCH. BETTER. than my NARS Laguna/Orgasm Duo compact, which set me back more than three times what this cost. The upshot is that at least I can use the bronzer in this anywhere I feel I need a touch of colour. The highlighter is a gorgeous champagne which can get a little blinding, but if that's your thing, hey you're going to love it. The blush is super-similar to Orgasm, minus the chunky glitter particles, which is also a plus. I love this compact.
