I read so many fabulous beauty blogs and a common trend among them all is Sleek MakeUP. I'll be honest, until I got into blogging and reading blogs, I'd never heard of this UK cosmetic brand before. After seeing the colors available and hearing so many positive things about the line, I made my first Sleek online purchase.
I must say, their prices are fantastic and they have such a wide range of color palettes. Needless to say, I couldn't make up my mind on colors and bought WAY too many eye shadows. Here's what I got: Storm i-Divine Palette, Monaco i-Divine Palette, Bad Girl i-Divine Palette and the Molten Metal Metallic Eye Shadow Duo. Whew, I know right? So many eye colors....
The Storm Palette seems to be exceptionally popular as it's the one I always read about on everyone's blog. I liked this palette (like everyone else) because it's filled with more neutrals: bronze, grey, brown, burgundy and black. All are colors I love to wear on my eyes AND, the best part is, they are so pigmented. Seriously, for a $10 palette, you would never expect to get this quality. I love it.
The Monaco Palette is filled with exceptionally bright colors and reminds me of being on an island. (Hence the name I guess...ha). I haven't worn most of these colors before but can not wait to dabble in and see if I can pull off magenta eyelids. Though the Storm Palette didn't have a "name sheet", this one did. The colors (left to right; top then bottom) are Bamboo, Aquamarine, Midnight Garden, Sunset, Washed Ashore, Magenta Madness, Summer Breeze, Sand Walker, Kiwi Zest, Lotus Flower, Humming Bird and Moors Treasure.
The Bad Girl Palette is my absolute favorite!! It contains beautiful deep blues, purples, silvers, and blacks that create the perfect "bad girl" smoky eye. The palette contains (left to right; top then bottom) Innocence, Gullible, Blade, Gun Metal, Underground, Noir, Intoxicated, Envy, Obnoxious, Abyss, Twilight and Rebel. Eek...I can't wait to put this palette to good use.
Lastly, the Molten Metal Cream Eye Shadow Duo. As you all know, I adore metallic eye shadows and I am so glad I bought them. These colors are super creamy, extremely pigmented and glide on like butter. Definitely worth the $10.50
I am super happy to say that this will not be my last online purchase from Sleek MakeUP because I'm blown away by their quality and prices. However, next time, I'd like to buy some other items aside from eye shadows.
Have any of you tried Sleek before? What are your thoughts?
