Other than their eyeshadows, I haven't really explored Sleek Makeup. I'm not entirely sure why, either, as what I have tried has been created at an amazing quality considering the high street price point. I was recently given the chance to try out some of the brands' new Spring releases, and they're seriously impressive.
First up is the new Eyebrow Stylist*. I don't own many eyebrow products as I tend to just buy an eyebrow powder and stick to it, but the creamy pencil combined with a spoolie on the other end intrigued me. I have the shade medium which is a touch too warm/light for my dark brows, and I think it would be better suited to those who don't need a lot of product on their brows. I've been using it to fill in the outer parts of my eyebrows, but I still need to use powder to cover the spaces on my inner brows.
The CC Cream* from Sleek has turned out to be my favourite from the new releases. I've reached for this ever since I received it and I'm still amazed at how flawless the coverage is. I often have problems with foundation covering the redness on the tops of my cheeks, but this is perfect. It comes in four different shades, unlike a lot of "universal" CC/BB creams that aren't at all and end up too orange on my paler skin. I will be taking this to Florida thanks to the addition of SPF29 (strange number, but it's there nonetheless).
The Blush by 3 palette in Californ.i.a* is definitely one for the upcoming summer months. It contains three cream blushers:-
- Newport Beach, a medium pink-coral with a fresh, dewy finish.
- The Surf, a peachy orange with gold shimmer and sheer finish.
- OC, an orange-coral and a dewy finish.
I'm an avid lover of cream blushers and the coral tones in this palette were just what I needed to give my makeup bag more of a summer overhaul. They're easy to apply both with fingers and a brush, and wear time is about 8 hours for all three shades.
All in all, Sleek seem to be on top form with their new releases. As I write this I'm actually eyeing up the other Blush by 3 palette in Pink Lemonade!
