Sleek Makeup Haul & Review

Awhile back one of my lovely friends lent me her Sleek eyebrow stylist to try out, and ever since then I have been wanting to get my hands on one for myself. On a recent trip to Cardiff I finally went into the Superdrug store that sells Sleek to pick up one and whist I was in there I spotted a deal they had, which was spend £10 and get a free 'Matte Me' lip cream. Obviously being a makeup addict I had to take advantage of this deal so decided to also purchase a blusher, bronzer and highlighter set which I have had my eye on since I saw some great reviews of it.

Eyebrow Stylist - £5.99
I am such a big fan of this eyebrow stylist and I have found myself using it every day now when I’m in a rush for work as it is so quick and easy to use. It comes in light, medium or dark and the one I have is medium. This is quite dark, so if you are blonde I would probably recommend light, unless you are like me and like your eyebrows quite dark, then medium is definitely suitable.
It comes in a design which you twist at the bottom to release the crayon which makes it quick and convenient and you don’t have to worry about sharpening. The formula is so creamy and applies easily without the need for lots of pressure when applying. By pressing lightly you can get quite a natural looking brow, or if you like a more defined look you can achieve this as well pressing harder. This means it is great for daytime and evening looks. It also has a small brush on the end which is a bonus and allows you to blend in the product well once applied. 

The only down side about this product is that it does seem to run out quite quickly. However, at the price of £5.99 I don’t think it’s too bad as you don’t feel like you’ve wasted lots of money on a product which hasn’t lasted long.
Face Form Contour Kit - £10
I am always looking for products which are convenient for traveling when you have limited space, so I love a good palette! This contour and blush set from Sleek caught my eye when I was browsing as I loved the design. The packaging is small and compact and not bulky at all. It also contains a mirror which is really useful. I chose the shade 'light' as I thought it best suited my skin tone. 

It comes with a matte bronzer, a shimmery champagne highlighter and a shimmery pink blusher. Both the bronzer and highlighter are very pigmented and great quality. I have been comparing this to my Bourjois bronzer and highlighter duo and both bronzers I really like, but I definitely prefer the highlighter in the Sleek palette as it is much more pigmented and gives more of an effect. Out of the three in this palette the blusher is my least favourite, I have found it is not as pigmented as the bronzer and highlighter, and I usually prefer a more subtle matte blusher instead of shimmer. 

Overall this palette is great and I feel like you get so much for your money, I will definitely be taking this with me when go I away for Christmas.

Matte Me Lip Cream - £4.99

Finally is the free lip cream I got with this purchase, I was already excited about this as I love a freebie and it normally retails at £4.99 so I was even more excited when I tried it out and discover it is also a really good product. This lip cream is matte which I have never tried before and it is great.  It provides a really pigmented colour which dries on the lips very quickly and last a long time. It is very matte so I probably wouldn’t recommend this if you have quite dry lips as it could dry them out even more. But then again if you are looking for a really long lasting colour this is great and you could pop some lip balm on top to moisturise your lips. 

As you can see the colour I chose is a very bold, bright hot pink shade and it is just as bright when applied. I absolutely love this colour but obviously it isn’t for everyone and they did have lots of other shades to choose from.

I can’t believe I have never tried Sleek makeup until now, I have seen so many good reviews on other blogs and have been meaning to get something for a while. I really love all three of these products from Sleek and is now a new favourite brand of mine.

Do you like Sleek? Have you tried any of these?
