Brand Focus - Sleek Makeup


It is no secret how much I love Sleek makeup, for me they have some of the best products on the high street.  Even though they are relatively cheap, their products are of very high quality. From the packaging to the contents, most of their products can compare to higher end brands. Here is a break down of some of the best bits that I own. 

Blush
They are highly pigmented, easy to build up and apply very nicely 

Contour Kit/Face Form
I have been using Sleeks contour kit for as long as I can remember and only changed the the face form this year as I ran out. It's a beautiful matte brown shade which looks lovely when applied to the contours of the face. The highlighter is equally as beautiful giving you just the right amount of shimmer. 

Eyes 
I have quite a few of the sleek eyeshadow palette's, I find they are really good value for money. Each palette comes with 12 eyeshadows, normally a mix of matte's, shimmers and satins but there are some kits that are solely devoted to matte and cream shadows. I found the original palette to be a great dupe of the Urban Decay Naked palette. The shadows are highly pigmented and easy to blend. 

Lips 
Again with the lipsticks/lip paints they are highly pigmented. The Pout Paint reminds me of the OCC lip tars as they have the same consistency and pigmentation but they are a 3rd of the price. The lipsticks have a lovely creamy formula which feels very hydrating on the lips but sometimes they do tend to smudge as a result. 

Sleek makeup is sold online here and across Boots and Superdrugs,
