More additions to the Sleek palette family - Sunset & Graphite

Thursday, October 29, 2009

Just when you thought theyd churned out enough, Sleek have created and released yet more eyeshadow palettes. Now I could have sworn they tweeted on Twitter that the Curious palette would be the last one but they appear to have changed their minds.

First up an eyeshadow palette which goes by the name of Sunset. Full of warm peaches, golds and even a shimmery red eyeshadow the palette is reminiscent of erm ..a sunset!




I can't help but think this wouldn't have looked out of place had it been released in June, instead of October but hey, it's here now. Luckily this palette is perm so there's no need to break your neck to buy it.

Next is the Graphite palette - an ode to the smoky eye. I've been waiting patiently for the past fortnight to see this in person and it's a fairly decent smoky palette for under a fiver. This is LE, so do rush to buy it if you want it.



The shadows have the usual smooth, shimmery formula, are rich in pigment and swatch extremely well without the use of a primer. The critic in me has noticed that at least 3 of the grey shadows look exactly the same unless you're staring really intensely at your swatches but for £4.88 I won't complain too much.

I know a few UK bloggers have snapped these up already, what do you think of them? In all honesty, although I joke about it being a habit to buy the latest Sleek palette, I'm also thinking enough is enough now. The colour spectrum's been covered well and they're great for travel but I'm a bit bored of them of this being the main thing Sleek appear to advertise.

I was pleased to see new nail polishes, blushers and new eye dust shades at my local Sleek stand and I picked up a polish to compare quality. I only own one red polish so I picked up Geisha's Seal 42 as I had dupes of all the other 7 or so shades that were available.

International chicks, sit tight! I know you're itching to get your hands on some Sleek goodness. I saw them mention on Twitter than they're hoping to begin shipping internationally next month. Fingers crossed for you!

Price: £4.88
Where can I find them? In various Superdrug branches nationwide.

I really really really want to try the Sleek palettes but my local Superdrug doesn't stock the range. Yet another reason I hate not living in London anymore. Great swatches as usual hun! xxx

Jamilla Camel said...

I'm an NC 20-25 and there is NO WAY I could ever wear the Sunset Palette, although it looks great against your skin!

I'll take a look at the Graphite palette...

thanks for the swatches!

I bought these two today. I like them. I have all the Sleek palettes except for Chaos - never liked the colours in Chaos. It may be nice if the moved onto quads or started doing some seasonal releases only available seasonally. they are supposed to have false lashes but these are not sold in my local superdrugs. also I hope they have not forgot about the African Caribbean hair shops that have kept them relevant for the past 19yrs before they expanded.

But yes I agree they do need to promote their other products and maybe worth them introducing mini holiday gift sets or something before they get stale

LottieB said...

Oooooo this look gorgeous! I wonder if I can get my hands on these?....No Sleek on the Isle of Man :(

Jennifer said...

Such a bargain aren't they!! Loving your blog header xx

Sarah said...

I did some swatching this evening - I agree the Graphite greys are kinda samey. Decided I've got all these colours, and although it's a nice little set I had to be sensible and pass. Did get Acid though, which was also there, surprisingly.

Em x said...

I still haven't got any of these palettes, i think they are so pretty but i can't help thinking i'd just ignore it at the bottom of my beauty box hmmmmm x

@ Lu - Nah they'll prob be lots left.

@ LoveAudrey - do you want me to get it for you? Lemme know.

@ Jamilla Camel - You're welcome. The Storm & Graphite palette would suit you.

@ SoFroLushes - Hmmm time will tell. I'm interested in trying out their other products.

@ Jennifer - I'm good for the moment hon cos I just got my U.S make up "fix". I know there are a few UK girls interested in doing a swap though - ask on Twitter.

@ Sadie - Thanks hon! I think only two people have noticed so far!! LOL I love it!

@ Sarah - They've re-released Acid. I don't need another grey e/s for the next 4 years now1
