Review: Sleek MakeUP

I just received my Sleek MakeUP order and wanted to share my thoughts on the products I received. I discovered this brand via YouTube, I believe in a video by MakeupbyMel. The colors in the palette were so beautiful, that I kept thinking I must have this! After much research, I found this UK based brand to only be sold in the UK… in their drug stores! You can find past and present palettes on eBay, but now you can order online.

I ordered four palettes, the Oh So Special, Storm, Bad Girl, and The Original, and each contain 12 eye shadows. The palettes are $10 USD each and the shipping charges are $13.50 USD for all orders to the U.S., regardless of how much your order totals. It took about 10 days to arrive via postal service.

The Oh So Special palette contains 7 matte shades and 5 shimmer shades, including pinks, browns and plums. The Storm palette is probably my favorite, containing 3 matte shades and 9 shimmer shades. With lots of neutrals, this palette is perfect for every day or nighttime looks.

The Bad Girl palette is the palette made for smoky eyes with 2 mattes and lots of dark shades. The Bad Girl palette will bring out the bad girl in all of us! The last one is The Original with all 12 shades being shimmer. The colors are vibrant and bright. Each palette contains a black shade, for smoking out your look.

The shadows are mineral based, so an eye shadow primer is needed. I found that the Urban Decay Primer Potion works well, I used Eden. It helps the eye shadows stick and not crease or fade. I have not tried foiling these shadows, as I don’t want to ruin them.  The colors are so pigmented that the color you see is the color you get! And you really do not need much product on your brush, because a little bit goes a long way!

I look forward to more from this company. My next order will be… blush! Check out for all the products that they offer.

  2. I love Sleek Eyeshadow palettes, they are amazing quality and are not overly expensive. Can't wait to see their future products!
