What I Bought: Sleek Makeup Haul


Sleek is a brand that I haven’t really explored much even though it’s loved in the beauty blogosphere. Not because I don’t want to try it, on the contrary actually. But every time I head into a Superdrug store I find that the Sleek counter is really messy or hardly has any stock – it took me months to find a rose gold blush, and even then they only had one which I was buying as a gift. Anyway I digress.

Sleek Makeup Haul

Sleek was recently offering a 25% off code if you filled out a short survey for them, so I saw it was a perfect opportunity to indulge in a few things I’d been lusting over.

The colours look really washed out in this picture; they’re in fact a lot more vibrant than the picture appears. The middle colour is a fiery red, which is a colour I don’t really have in my collection, so that pretty much sold the palette for me.

I’ve actually been looking for this kit for months and every Superdrug I go into never has it in dark. I was reluctant to buy online as my skin tone is pretty dark and I wanted to swatch the contour shade, but I took the plunge anyway and I love it.

I finally have one! This was probably the highlight of my whole order. It’s a fantastic dupe for NARS Orgasm and it's the perfect summer blush for all skin tones.

Another dusky pink nude to add to the lipstick collection. Now that I have it I’m slightly on the fence about it but I think it’s a great nude for lighter skin tones.

My absolute favourite eyebrow pencil! I always use this to fill in my brows as it looks nice and natural and doesn’t scream “I’ve drawn on my eyebrows!”

I have no idea why I bought this. I’m sure I was watching a YouTube channel or admiring a makeup look on a blog that happened to feature this shade, as it’s not something I’d usually even think about buying. Hopefully I can find a use for it though!

I’m not a big gloss wearer anymore but I couldn’t help but put this in my basket. It applies as a cute, sheer pink with a nice subtle shine and it look great on top of the Liqueur lipstick.

So that’s my little Sleek haul, expect to see some reviews and proper swatches soon!

I love sleek especially the pallettes! I got 2 lipsticks using the discount as well, one of them I don't really like. But in general I love their lippies and blushes too

I'm loving that rose gold blush! Does it leave too much of a shimmer with it or does it look natural on the face?

I'm also having a blogsale if you'd like to check it out here :)

Wow I love everything you've got! The contour kit in dark really is a good dark shade isn't it? I have very pale skin but I can appreciate how good a match the dark shade must be! xx

I thought that was the new mirrored pink blush then and thought damn, I also got the 25% code and bought a few things and that's one thing I wanted but it isn't out yet! I got things I wouldn't normally try since they rarely do discounts. The blush by 3 is a great bargain but I've barely touched mine in over a year so a bit of a waste :(

I think my favourite Sleek product is either the Blush by 3 in Sugar or the Christmas Limited Edition set I got a few years ago.. I love them so much!

Oh my! You picked up some lovely treats. Everything looks great and so affordable, but the Blush by 3 and True Colour Lipsticks are my favourite. I hope you enjoy them.

I love the quality of Sleek products for the reasonable price. Wish I'd known you could get 25% off though! The eyeliners are something I'd like to try, very nice!

Yeah I'm so glad to finally get my mitts on it, it's too difficult to track down in store!x

Thanks lovely!x

It's such a great drugstore brand. I love the pigmentation in their blushes, amazing!x

 
At March 6, 2013 at 7:11 PM , Blogger Lola Omokorede said...

I'm loving them. Definitely need to buy more I think!x

 
At March 6, 2013 at 7:13 PM , Blogger Lola Omokorede said...

You're right it's so good, I can't believe I didn't get it sooner!x

 
At March 6, 2013 at 7:14 PM , Blogger Lola Omokorede said...

Every girl definitely needs it in her blush collection, it's a beauty!x

 
At March 6, 2013 at 7:14 PM , Blogger Lola Omokorede said...

Definitely grab one, such a bargain!x

 
At March 6, 2013 at 7:17 PM , Blogger Lola Omokorede said...

I'll have to look out for that blush by three shade, I'm loving flame so far!x

 
At March 6, 2013 at 7:18 PM , Blogger Lola Omokorede said...

It's quite shimmery but it's a very subtle shimmer as the blush is very finely milled. The pigmentation is crazy though so only a little swipe is needed, otherwise you end up looking like a disco ball/clown! Haha x

 
At March 6, 2013 at 7:18 PM , Blogger Lola Omokorede said...

Thanks!x

 
At March 6, 2013 at 7:19 PM , Blogger Lola Omokorede said...

You definitely should, the products are great and really cheap when you consider the quality!x

 
At March 6, 2013 at 7:20 PM , Blogger Lola Omokorede said...

Yeah it's a necessity, make sure you get it - it's gorgeous!x

 
At March 6, 2013 at 7:20 PM , Blogger Lola Omokorede said...

Yeah I'd been hunting it down for ages but it was always sold out, glad to finally have it!x
