Sleek palette collection

A makeup brand that used to be very popular for their eyeshadow palettes is Sleek. This affordable UK drugstore brand took the makeup world by storm at the start of my blogging career. However, since then, new players entered the market and Sleek is now all but forgotten. But I still like them and over…

Sleek I-Divine Garden of Eden

It is a sad, sad day for makeup when one of your favorite palettes is discontinued. That is what happened with this Sleek eyeshadow palette. Lately, Sleek seems to have been discontinuing many of their I-Divine palettes and out of all of them, I am saddest seeing this one go. Garden of Eden is a…

Sleek I-Divine eyeshadow palette Nordic Skies

Last year Sleek released some new I-Divine eyeshadow palettes. On the Horizon was one of them, but they also did a pastel number: Nordic Skies. This light colored palette features lots of mattes which is quite different for Sleek. So, is the quality as we can expect from Sleek? Sleek I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette Nordic Skies

Sleek I-Divine On the Horizon eyeshadow palette

So many great fall palettes that are released, so little time. But that doesn’t mean I can keep this beauty away from you! For fall Sleek has released three new I-Divine eyeshadow palettes: On the Horizon, Goodnight Sweetheart and Nordic Skies. I decided to buy two of them and today, I am reviewing the first…

Sleek I-Divine palettes: Calm Before the Storm & All Night Long

Sleek has been releasing some new palettes and I picked up two that looked interesting to me. One of them isn’t all that new, but the other is a brand new release from not too long ago. In any case, I haven’t heard much about Sleek’s eyeshadow palette as of late and what’s more, I…

Sleek I-Divine eye shadow palettes

For today’s blog post I decided to change it up a bit. This isn’t necessarily a review, but more like a swatch blog post. Back in the day, I used to buy make up, but I didn’t necessarily take the pictures for placement on my blog. The result? A bunch of awesome products I never…

Sleek Face Form Palette

That Sleek makes some great eyeshadow palettes was already know to me, but I had yet to try their face palettes. I am familiar with their blushes, but their bronzers and highlighters I had never tried before. So when I was in the UK and stumbled upon this palette for fair skin I was curious…

Sleek blushes

Some beauty products just need as many honorable mentions as they can get. They are worthy of their praise and so incredibly wonderful that everyone in the world should try them. One such product is Sleek’s powder blush and blush by 3 palettes. At least in my opinion. I have owned and tried several of…

On the other hand, neutral shades are also perfect for creating smokey eyes and more dramatic looks. Neutral eyeshadows are handy to take your every day office look and upgrade it to…

Budget Proof Make Up

This post is triggered by a comment Alison left last week on my post on Benefit Cosmetics. Benefit is indeed an expensive make up brand. No matter where you are located. Therefore, it is always a good idea to try and find cheaper alternatives. Drug store brands from around the globe often offer some very…
