My husband is always supportive with my blog and he kindly treated to the Sleek Makeup Box of Tricks Ultimate Makeup Haul, Boots had an offer I really could not refuse with the set being £25 instead of £45 absolute bargain! I have only ever used a couple of Sleek’s products before but I have never been disappointed.
The box contains 9 Sleek products with a mixture of face, eye and lip products.. what more could you need!?
Vintage Romance I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette, Face Contour Kit In Medium, Lip Vip Lipstick In Guest List, Twist Up Midnight, Eyebrow Stylist In Medium, Solstice Highlighting Palette, Matte Me In Shabby Chic, Full Fat Lash Mascara and Blush By 3 In Lace.
Vintage Romance I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette
This palette contains 12 glam eye shadows which are perfect for any party look with a variety of cooler and warmer shades, my favourite has to be Lust in LA. Each eyeshadow is pigmented and easily blended bar a few which take a little more blending than others. The palette also contains a nice sized mirror which is brilliant for travelling or if your like me and your mirror is broke *sad face*.
Face Contour Kit – Medium
I have never been interested or used a contour kit before but thought that I would give it a whirl seeing that it was in the pack. The kit comes in the shade medium with a powder and highlighter which is the perfect duo for those contour lovers. I’m unable to give a comment to this because like I say I’ve never contoured before, but the powder is really pigmented so I have made a few muddy mistakes *covers eyes* maybe with bit more of a lighter touch might help.
VIP Lipstick – Guest List
Sleek’s VIP lipstick is a creamy highly pigmented vibrant red, which glides across your lips without pulling or picking up those pesky dry patches, it is really moisturising.
Twist Up Eye Pencil – Midnight
I tend to use liquid eyeliners and not to use pencil eyeliners because they always smudge but this is perfect for the bottom last line it’s creamy and easily blended leaving a perfect smokey look.
Eyebrow Stylist – Medium
This eyebrow pen has two sides, one with a little spoolie and the other pencil which is the ultimate travel handy accessory, there’s no messing around with powders, brow gels and angled brushes it’s all in one. Perfect. The pencil comes in the shade medium which is a warm brown tone. I usually struggle with pencils due to my eyebrows being sparse and sometimes slightly out of shape, so I tend to go a bit crazy and over-do them compared to using an angled brush where I tend to get cleaner lines but this one is super simple to use and no hassle at all.
Solstice Highlighting Palete
As well as contouring I have never really used highlighted before but this solstice highlighting palette is literally the bees knees! This palette includes two baked powders, one luxurious cream formula and one silky shimmer powder in the shades hemisphere, equinox, subsolar and ecliptic.
I kept getting paranoid about using it, I mean hemisphere is a purple shade, surely it would turn my cheeks purple? In fact it doesn’t, it is absolutely stunning and it gives my face that little bit of a subtle glow which is definitely needed sometimes due to having pale skin and tending to lean towards the more matte foundations.
Matte Me – Shabby Chic
i’ve tried Sleek’s matte me liquid lipsticks before (post soon to follow) and I can say they are incredible, they glide on and don’t stick to the dry patches on my lips and last for hours on end. Honestly they are probably one of the best lipsticks i’ve ever used. Shabby Chic is a pinkish shade which i’m not too keen on, i’m not really a pink lipstick kind of person but more so deeper reds and purples but it’s still awesome regardless.
Full Fat Lash Mascara
I have the smallest lashes ever but Sleek’s full fat lash mascara’s bristles work wonders for separating and making my lashes look fuller without them clumping together.
Blush By 3 – Lace
I am obsessed with using blush to give me that extra bit of colour, it works wonders especially this mini palette, it contains three gorgeous shades Crochet, Guipure and Chantilly.
