I’ve been hearing so much about a makeup range called Sleek recently, so I paid a visit to Superdrug yesterday to see if they had it. I wasn’t actually expecting it to be in the one I went to as it’s in a shopping mall and quite small compared to others, but I was so excited to find it was in there!
One of the main attractions to this brand seems to be their value for money; apparently their quality matches higher-end, more expensive brands. I picked up a few things after spending a good half an hour standing testing things (I was too drawn in!) and I have to say, so far I’m really impressed with them!
The first thing I went for was the i-Divine eyeshadow palette, in “Oh So Special”. I always seem to be drawn to more neutral eyeshadow colours, so I loved this one. To be honest, despite the good comments they’ve already received, I didn’t expect it to be so good! The choice of colours allows you to use it for both daytime and evening wear, and they’re really pigmented! I’d definitely recommend it – if I didn’t live so far away from the city I’d have been back already to pick up another one… I can tell where my money’s going when university starts back!
I also got the Blush by 3 palette in “Lace”. I tend to be kind of fussy with foundations and blushers, mostly driven by sensitive skin, so this one was either going to be a hit or a miss… It was definitely a hit! Again, it’s very pigmented, and I felt that it brightened up my complexion noticeably. I even got complimented on how my skin looked when I had it on – it’s already been added to my makeup bag!
Next to join my shopping basket was two shades of True Colour Lipstick, in “Cherry” (on the left) and “Mystic” (right, obviously). Compared to eyeshadows, recently I’ve found myself looking for darker colours when it comes to lips, which Cherry achieves. This is a sheen, so I found it pretty easy to apply – my only downside is that on me, it looked a bit like it was bleeding (though to be fair, I did apply it in a bit of a rush). Mystic, on the other hand, is a matte. It was definitely a different shade to what I usually wear, which again is soft pinks – this one is more of a purpley-fucshia colour. I liked this one for its application, where I found I could build the colour up to the boldness I wanted it at. I do like the lipsticks for winter just now, so maybe when we start getting into spring/summer I’ll revisit to look at their lip glosses!
All in all, I’m really impressed with this brand! If you want to see their products for yourself, their website is http://www.sleekmakeup.com :)
