Surprisingly all shades work beautifully on my NC30 skin. They don’t show up colorfully on my cheekbones. Very wearable! And the formula is beautiful

Blush -Sleek -Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette

on 6/30/2018 4:54:00 PM

Got this in Fair, the lightest of the 4 available palettes, for around a tenner at some point last year. It contained a matte powder contour, a powder highlighter, and a powder shimmery blush, all full size pans packed into the palette case with a mirror on the underside of the lid. I bought this on a whim, keen to find a nice enough powder highlight & contour duo, so the blush seemed like an added bonus. Swatching the tester on the back of my hand, I'd thought it looked alright on me - but my sleep-deprived brain failed to take into account that the yellow-toned shop lighting wasn't exactly going to show colours the same as natural daylight. When I used it the next day, the contour was too orange and looked like rusty mud, and the highlighter wasn't pale enough so that just looked like shiny loose powder half a shade too dark. The blush was a very nice colour, a rich coral pink grapefruit with gold shimmer - reminded me of shimmery Nars blushers, but even heavier on shine. Used alongside the highlighter, it was overkill on me - my face probably could have been used as a bike reflector panel at that point.

After a single use I gave it to a friend who had warmer undertones and was slightly less pale than me (around NC15-20), and seemed to suit her much better. So if your skin also leans warm, you love shimmer, and you want an affordable face colour powder palette, it might be worth a look. But those with cooler tones will probably want to give this a miss.

This is an amazing, wet looking highlighter! All colors are wearable and look stunning! They are not chunky and glittery and they make your skin look healthy and shiny. True definition of ''blinding'' highlighter.

Blush -Sleek -Powder Blush in Show Down 921

Show Down is a pretty beige with a hint of peach, making it a very nice daily-use nude blush. I recently returned a different blush to Ulta that was too dark and pigmented to be a nice true nude on me, and I happened to stumble across this one--it was not on my list of items I was interested in at all. It is not super-pigmented, but it does apply and blend nicely, and it can be built up. The packaging is nice and sturdy, though it is quite small; the pan takes up the entirety of the inside, but it is not difficult to get even a fluffy brush into it to pick up product. Sleek also produced a nude-ish blush called Suede with the same number (921), and I don't know if this is just the same thing renamed or not. I am glad that I picked it up, since it works much better as a straight-up nude blush on me than the $30+ one that I returned.

Lipstick -Sleek -Matte Me Lip Cream

on 6/22/2018 2:53:00 AM

These are rubbish. I really tried to like the one I bought as the colour is amazing but it’s so uncomfortable to wear. It goes on reasonably well, dries quick and this where the problems start. Can dry patchy, even if it does go patchy, it will go crusty, and the longer it stays on, the more the lips look dry... and the feeling - I mean I use other matte lipsticks but this one - like some weird coating, I cannot stand this.
And it is a shame because the colours are nice, packaging is nice but for the price the quality is shocking.

Best affordable highlighter out there! The peachy pink shade is my favourite so far. This costs $24.99 AUD and it’s worth it. The packaging is sturdy and a shiny finish. It does need to be cleaned often as the palette gets dirty and fingerprints go on it easily. This highlighter can be metallic and intense, and if you’re not into that, apply it sparingly. It will show up high shine in pictures and it does need to be layered a bit to reach its full glaring potential. Also, it does emphasise your skin texture but I find most highlighters do. The peach highlight lasts a while on me.

Blush -Sleek -MakeUP Blush - Rose Gold

Very pretty strong peach pink blush. Absolutely nothing like Nars Orgasm!
The texture is smooth and stays on well but it lacks transparency and subtlety. Which is why people say it is better than Nars.
Because you can see it in a Wham Bam! way. The gold shimmer is there but the colour is warmer and tends toward the apricot side.
So you see the colour first. However it is lovely, bloomin' cheap and I will use both palettes of it I bought ( accidentally bought two).
BUT just be aware it is NOT a dupe for Nars... If I had a choice, I would have Nars which is lighter and veil like and more pink rose. This is more Coral Rose.

Palettes -Sleek -Au Naturel

This isn't the best selection of neutral and natural colours out there.

Going by the picture, left to right:
Top row - matte ivory, matte light grey, matte milk tea brown, matte light lemon, matte apricot, shimmer light rose gold
Bottom row - shimmer dark mahogany, matte mid brown - leaning yellow, matte dark brown, matte olive brown, matte mahogany, matte black

I do like the rose gold, shimmery mahogany, and matte apricot shades. Strangely, the shimmer shadows do go on more opaque than the matte ones. You'd think it would be the other way around. The matte shadows are quite chalky and dusty when applying but look a little better over primer. The shimmer shades are less chalky and contain fine pearl particles instead of glitter, so no stray glitter to annoy my eyes. Anyway as for the colours, the lemon yellow is hard to pull off and doesn't really go with the rest of the palette. Same for the grey. The brown shades on the bottom row all look similar to each other, and I would have liked it if there were less browns and more midtone neutral colours. And even though I like the apricot shade, that doesn't go well with the majority of the rest of the palette as they clashed too much. I feel that the warm tones in some of the colours next to other neutral ones make them look a little off.

As for the packaging, it's a non-descript black oblong case with the brand logo on the front - nothing special at first glance. But inside, there is a mirror the size of the oblong case! It allows me to check my appearance/hair etc as it has a wider field of vision than small round compact mirrors. I can easily see my whole face in the mirror even close up - and I know you're probably laughing at me now. But I can't do that with smaller mirrors and so can't accurately gauge the overall look of my make-up - like whether the lip colour I picked doesn't look as good nextt to that eyeshadow that I first thought and so on.

I recently dropped the case and the hinge broke, so now I just take the mirror around with me. One good thing though is that there was minimal crumbling of the shadows themselves even after dropping it. Gets points for resilience, I think!


Blush -Sleek -MakeUP Blush - Pomegranate

This is my second Sleek blush as I was absolutely bowled over by the Rose Gold (which dented after a week's use). I had uummed and aahhed before purchasing as the colour looked so dark in the pan, but decided to take a punt anyway after checking out a few swatches online.

As many reviewers and bloggers have said, Sleek blushes can be incredibly pigmented and Pomegranate is no exception. It looks like it might have a slight metallic finish in the pan, but it shows matte on me when applied. Rather unexpectedly, I thought it would be a cooler-toned berry colour, but actually shows up quite warm (like a red-russet) on my skin.

Despite having a tanned complexion, I still have to apply with a very light touch to get a pop of colour. The colour lasts for a good 6-7 hours but it seems to oxidise a bit after that (although I don't feel the need to re-touch during an average wear time of 14-16 hours).

I would definitely purchase again, but am not sure when that might be as one pan could probably last me for a few years of daily use!

Contour -Sleek -Face Contour Kit

I guess with the contouring product in most of the cases you get what you're paying for.
All three contouring shades are warm toned and warm colors aren't suitable for contouring, only for bronzing. And light one is way too dark to be used as a bronzer on my fair-medium skin. I also don't like shimmery powder highlights, so this kit is a total pass.

Powders -Sleek -Suede Effect Pressed Powder SPF 15

foto

Looks like I'm the first to review this. It retails for 6£ and comes in a nice packaging with a puff and a mirror. It also has SPF 15 AND contains Vitamin A, C and E all for 6£ !! I live in the UK so Sleek is quite big here but I never found a powder with such good quality at such a low price, well done Sleek! The texture is suede velvety hence the name and I love the finish. Recently, I have been reaching out for it the most despite my higher end powders and I know I'm gonna use it more in the summer with its additional SPF.

I’m a blushaholic but I still held off buying this as it just looked SO dark in the pan. I eventually bit the bullet and was genuinely knocked out by how good this is. It’s soooo good.
Lovely plum colour with a mild sheen (like a deeper Rockateur) and NO glitter. It blends like a dream and you can of course intensify the colour to your liking. I’m NW15 so just a light sweep does it for me but would be stunning on darker skin.
Lovely compact with a mirror too, if a little hard to open :(


Palettes -Sleek -i-Divine Original Eyeshadow Palette

I really wanted to give this palette a good review because of how pretty the colors are but I've use it and just can't. You really REALLY need a good primer with this or they will not stay on your eyes for longer than an hour or even show up and in order for a palette to be good I feel like it should be usable without a primer to some degree.
With a good primer the shades are nice but have terrible fallout and don't swipe away well. The yellow is unusable as it crumbled immediately after first use.
