Sleek au naturel palette





I have never brought anything from Sleek before, but after my friend recommended this palette to me, I thought I would give it a try. We were discussing the MUA Undressed Palette, and how the colours are really nice but would much prefer them if they wasn't so glittery. I've only had the MUA palette for a month or so and the eye shadows have already started crumbing and falling apart. So this Sleek palette seemed perfect, the colours are very similar but in a matte finish and paying that little bit extra definitely meant better quality. 

All the eye shadows included in this palette are shades I would wear on a day-to-day basis. I'm not very adventurous when it comes to eye shadow, so nude and basic colours are perfect for me. The top row is filled with nudes, my favourites being toast, honeycomb and nubuck. The lower row are darker shades which I really like for the evening or days when I fancy a darker eye. I really like regal, which is a dark purple shade which is very gothy and cool. Also conker would be perfect for a night out, its a smoky grey with gold speckles in it.  

I have found the quality of the eye shadows so much better than my MUA palette, I've been using this religiously since I brought it and none of the shadows have cracked or began to crumble. I also really love the packing, it makes the product look a lot more expensive than it was, and inside is a huge mirror which is perfect for using it on-the-go. 

Do you use any of the Sleek products, and what do you think?

  1. I don't have a sleek palette but I've been tempted so many times. And now I really want this palette. The colours look really wearable, and I've been on the look out for matte shadows. I'm sure it won't be long until I buckle.

  2. We don't have Sleek in Ireland where I live unfortunately, but I've heard a lot about their various products including this! It seems like a really useful palette since the colours are less sparkley than many shades out today. I really can't wait to try out some of their stuff, their eyebrow kit will be my first purchase when I visit London this summer!

  3. I'd like to try a Sleek palette at some point- I'm torn between this one and the Oh So Simple one. Great review!

  7. Oooh, what a bargain, it looks so pretty too. I have the UD basics palette but it doesn't have that many colours so this might be nice! I like Sleek products, I have a blush that I love! I hope you enjoy this palette!
