A natural look with Sleek Makeup.

Happy first beauty review of the year to me! and it’s a bloody good one. Sleek are a brand that I’d never really delved into until I was at a festival this year and my friend saved my life borrowing me her contour duo. Since then I’ve always kept an eye on the brand, so when I seen this ‘Box Of Tricks’ offer at half price in Boots at the boxing day sales, I quickly snapped it up without hesitation. I was so excited when I opened it!


The box holds my beloved face contour kit (having more than one is always good), the blogger favourite Solstice highlighting palette, a Vintage Romance eyeshadow palette good enough to give Anastasia Beverley Hills a run for their money and much more. There’s only one product I wouldn’t use in this box, which is the Twist Up liner.. but that’s only because I can’t apply eyeliner for the life of me – it’s still a great product, I’m just useless.

I was gonna swatch the whole box and give a run-through but I’m tired of just swatches, I for one always want to see the products actually on somebody’s face, rather than a really long colourful arm, so I decided to create a natural look that I’d wear day-to-day. My base is Mac Studio Fix and I’ve prepped my face with Laura Mercier primer and used Mac Fix to keep everything together, but besides that everything on my face came out of this little box which i think is quite spectacular. 

Voila. I’m impressed! the highlighting palette in particular is my now my favourite. I can’t fathom how much I love these products considering they’re so inexpensive. I never ever wear powder bronzers as I’ve used my Anastasia contour kit for so long I’m used to creams – yet Sleek’s contour duo blends effortlessly and it’s the perfect shade to add some definition to my face. I’m also a sucker for a good red shade as some of you may know, so you can imagine how happy I was that I managed to get one in this box. Have you ever tried anything from Sleek you’d recommend? I need more!
