Sleek Makeup Haul

Sleek makeup is a brand I had always wanted to try but as it isn't sold in Oz I never really had the chance. I recently discovered, however, that they ship worldwide from their website and as the shipping wasn't all that expensive ($13.50USD) decided I would place an order with them.

I placed my order on the 19th November and it arrived on the 5th December. It took 11 working days to get to Perth from the UK which is pretty good for this time of year.

Here is what I got :)

You all know how much I love orange-toned makeup so surprise surprise this haul is filled with it! I have heard so many great reviews on Sleek eyeshadow palettes and how pigmented the colours are and I loved the look of the bright orange colour in the Sunset palette so that was first on my list. 

Sleek Sunset Eyeshadow Palette (RRP $10USD)

In its box

The Unveiling


The swatches, can you believe these! I barely touched them.

I love the colours in this palette, however I feel like a few of them are a bit too similar. I mean how many shimmery reds do you need in the one palette? Also two of the shadows were a bit broken when they got to me, which I had to repress. This would have been from the way it was packaged, which wasn't all that sturdy.

I am still glad I got this palette though, the pigmentation and softness of the shadows are amazing and I especially love the bright orange and the bright blue colour.

Sleek Blush in Life's A Peach (RRP $6.50USD)

Once I saw this blush on the website I was sold. It looked like a beautiful bright orange! I have heard that Sleek blushes are really pigmented so when I received this I was a little underwhelmed, the colour just doesn't seem to show up on me when I swatched it. However, I wore it on my cheeks yesterday and it does show up I guess I was expecting something like a Nars Taj Mahal sorta colour. 

Sleek Pout Polish in Peach Perfection (RRP $6.50USD)

Pout Polish in Peach Perfection

I was sucked in by the peachy colour of this Pout Polish in Peach Perfection. It is a lot more like a gloss in consistency than a balm and it gives the lips a slight tinge of colour. It has quite a strong vanilla scent to it too which I don't mind. I'm not sure how much use I will get out of this though as I generally don't like lip products you have to stick your finger into but we will see.

Sleek then threw in a free mini High Shine Lipgloss in Sweet Sixteen (with a key ring attachment) which was a nice added bonus! Its a barbie pink colour with shimmer which I can see having on my keys and using when I forget a lip product.

This is just the first of a few hauls coming. I went a bit mad online shopping the other day! Haha

What have you hauled recently??

How disappointing they were damaged in transit. I don't own any Sleek products either so I'm keen to find out what the fuss is about!
