Sleek Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette

Hello Lovlies!

This is my last post on the Sleek products I brought in the 3for2 offer!

The 3rd product I brought was the Sleek Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette - Light 373. I have always been fascinated with contouring and highlighting but have also been a little afraid, does that sound crazy?! I was worried that I would end up looking stripy so choose to stay away from it. However when browsing the Sleek stand the Face Form Palette really caught my eye, and I decided to be brave a buy it!

As soon as I got home I tried it out and was very surprised at how easy it was to use and how good it actually looked on, no stripes!!! 

The palette incudes a contour, highlight and a blush.

The contour is a light matte brown with no shimmer, I feel that this is the perfect colour for very subtle conturing. I use this contour very lightly and love how it looks!

The highlighter is a lovely champagne shimmer which give a nice glow.

The blush is so amazing! A gorgeous rose gold shimmer, i feel that this blush is prefect for everyday and I get lots of compliments when I wear it!  You can also purchase the Rose Gold Blush separately if you didn't want the palette. 

Overall I love this palette and would really recommend it for anyone a tad nervous about contouring! 

Have you tried the Sleek Face Form Palette? Do you love contouring?

Lots of love,

Sleek True Colour Lipstick - Papaya Punch 782

Hello Lovlies,

Following on from my last Sleek post, the second product I got part of the 3for2 offer was the True Colour Lipstick in Papaya Punch 782.

I fell in love with this lipstick as soon as I saw it! It is such a beautiful colour, a pinky, coral,

orangey colour, BEAUTIFUL!! I had never tried any of Sleeks lipsticks before and being obsessed with orange/coral makeup I knew this colour was right for me ! Papaya Punch is a matt lipstick which I was very excited about as I LOVE the Rimmel Kate Moss Matt Lipsticks.

I have to admit I was very disappointed with this lipstick at first, the lipstick dragged on the lips when applied and as my lips get very dry (so annoying!) showed these dry patches up and just overall looked terrible! However as I loved the colour I was not giving up on it. Out came the lip balms and lip exfoliator, and as soon as my dry patches cleared up I gave it another go, and I am so glad I did!! With my lips being smooth the lipstick looked amazing! The colour looked great and was extremely long wearing. 

Overall I am so happy I didn't give up on this lipstick, as it has quickly became one of my favourites! After trying out my first Sleek True Colour Lipstick I am definitely going to get some more. The colours I am next getting my hands on are Amped, Fuchsia, Tangerine Scram and Peaches & Cream.

Have you tried Sleeks True Colour Lipsticks? Which colours would you recommend? 

Lots of love,

Sleek Blush By 3 - Pumpkin 363

Hello Lovlies, 

I have always heard great things about Sleek makeup but had never tried any of their products, until a few months ago while I was shopping with my boyfriend I saw that Superdrug had a 3for2 on all Sleek products! I was very lucky and my boyfriend let me choose 3 items and brought them for me! The first thing I choose was the Blush By 3 in Pumpkin 363, as soon as I saw this palette I knew I had to have it! I was attracted right away to the colour P Pie because I am obsessed with Orange!  The Pumpkin palette is made up of 3 HIGHLY pigmented blushes, all 3 have a different finish - 

Lantern - Shimmer (Left)

Lantern is a bright red/corral shade with a gold shimmer running through

Squash - Satin (Middle)

Squash is a beautiful pink shade

P Pie - Matte (Right)

P Pie is the most gorgeous orange shade

The first thing that impressed me with the Sleek Blush By 3 was the packaging, I love simple black packaging, looks very classy. I also love how the palette comes in a cardboard outer. Inside you get a huge mirror which is very handy.

Overall I have fallen in love with this palette and am dying to get hold of their Lace and Pink Sprint palettes. At £10 the price is very good for such an excellent product! I tend to use Squash every day but P Pie is definitely my favourite! 

Have you tried the Sleek Blush By 3 blushers? Which are your favourite colours?

Look out for my next Sleek review :)

Lots of love,
