Review: Sleek eyeshadow palettes & swatches

Saturday, June 13, 2009

What with my recent discovery of the Sleek blog page and the news that they'll soon be selling online, I dug out my palettes and reminded myself why I'd bought them in the first place. For under a fiver each, these are such a bargain. If you don't own one or are still sitting on the fence have a look at my swatches. The shades are so pigmented and the quality just can't be underestimated in these at all.

Finally the colours are so complimentary and concrete proof that you don't need to reach for high-end products all the time to get quality or create the best make up looks. The variety of shades you get for under £5 is brilliant. I love them both and think every woman, particularly WOC should own these as a staple in their collection whether you're a pro or just starting out.





Swatched with no base underneath - imagine how they'd look WITH an e/s primer!

Miss Virtue has kindly swatched their new acid palette and that'll be soon joining its siblings and settling into its new home on Monday with a bit of luck. I've already been in my local Superdrug and swatched my hand to death LOL

There's also a palette called Chaos which I don't own, but is all matte shades if I recall correctly.


Oh and they will be shipping to the states when the site goes live so you Yanks can finally gets your hands on this fab UK brand.

In the meantime I'll see my UK chicks in Superdrug!!


Price
£4.97

Where?
Superdrug and on Sleek's new online site which is coming tres soon!
