Some Of My Sleek Favourites

Sleek has quickly become one of my favourite beauty brands within the past couple of months. I feel as though they have really been upping their game recently and I've been discovering so many hidden gems, which I had no idea existed! I'm going to be talking about 3 of my favourite products today that have really stood out to me in terms of my makeup collection, but I'm going to be trying out some more things soon, so let me know if you have any recommendations, whether they are old or new!

Face Form Palette - £9.99 / A palette that I've been using as part of my everyday makeup routine for as long as I can remember is this Face Form Palette in the shade 'Light'. It comes with a bronzer, a highlight and then a shimmery pink blush, which is actually their singular blush in the shade 'Rose Gold' - pretty cool, right? Now, I'm not really that sorta gal that uses bronzer, but when I do wear it, I just use it from this palette, because it's already there and it would be silly of me to pay for a separate item when I don't even wear it that often. I find that you need a light hand with it, as it's very pigmented, but surely that can be said for any bronzer? There's no shimmer in it, but I just like using it to give me some more definition and shape to my cheekbones and it does the trick, so it's a winner from me. As far as the highlight goes, it's also a really good one! I've since found another highlighting product that I prefer over this, but that's not to say that it's not good enough, because it is! It gives you a lovely glow to the tops of your cheekbones and yet again, it's also pigmented, so it will last a long time before you hit pan.
The blush is, as I mentioned, also available on it's own and I think it's one of Sleek's most loved products. Everyone and their mum used to talk about it and I'm sure that they all still really like it, as it's thought to be a dupe for the Nars 'Orgasm' blush - but, for a much more affordable price! This is pretty much my go to blush shade, as you really can't go wrong with it. It's pretty, it's got a subtle but super nice shimmer to it and it adds so much colour to your face. If you're as pale as me, then this palette will be a life saver!
Sleek Eye Shadow Palette in the shade 'Storm' - £8.99 / This was actually a product that I bought aaages ago, but I just lost interest in it, as I was too young to understand how all the colours could work in any eye shadow look. After seeing it around the blogosphere recently, I knew that I had to pick it up again, much to my mum's despair after realising that I'd chucked it away before! Since making that decision, I haven't looked back. I've actually found so many ways to wear the eye shadows now, regardless of the colours and I'm so happy that I picked it up again! I tend to stick with the warm, golden shades at the moment, but really, for the price, there's such a variety of different options available and I think that some really stunning looks can be created if you experiment and put your mind to being a bit more creative. They are super pigmented, they blend really well, they aren't chalky or anything and you get a real mixture of colours, but they all work nicely together in the same palette, so it makes it super versatile as well. For the price, it's a must-have, trust me!
Sleek 'Pink Lemonade' Blush Palette - £9.99 / I've already done a separate review on this blush trio, which you can go and read here, but honestly, I can't say enough good things about it. It comes with 3 different shades of pink; 2 powders and 1 cream, but I can honestly say that at some point or another, I would wear all of them. Usually when you've got a product, which has more than one shade in it, there's usually at least one that you would normally steer away from and then one that you always go to, but that's not the case with this trio. I will admit that I do like to play it quite safe when it comes to blush as a rule. However, I don't really have a particular favourite this time, as I genuinely do think all of the shades are stunning. Sleek is on point with their pigmentation game and I know I've said that for all 3 of these favourite products, but it's because it's 100% true.
Considering Sleek's singular blushers are £4.99 each, being able to get 3 for £9.99 is just an offer that you can't refuse really! Go on, go and treat yourself. Blame me if you must!
That's it for now, folks! What do you think of these products? Do you have any other favourites that I need to know about?
Lots of love always,
