Brand Analysis: Sleek Make-Up

Tuesday, 22 July 2014

I went to my local Boots, started perusing the isles when I was hit with a beautiful sight, a brand new Sleek make-up stand! I jumped and squealed with joy as I have never seen Sleek make-up in Ireland so I was really quite excited as I've heard other bloggers harping on about how great Sleek is. In order to test the brand I got three products including an eyeshadow palette, a blush palette and a eyebrow pencil to see if the Sleek lived up to my expectations.

sleek blush by 3 pink lemonade

Let's get started with the Blush By 3, a palette with three different blushes. I got the palette named Pink Lemonade which consists of the shades Icing Sugar, a light pink hue with specs of gold glitter, Macaroon, a cream formula that is a true pink and finally Pink Mint, a corally shade with a hint of glitter. All the blushes are lovely colours and very pigmented and at only €12.99, they are very reasonably priced for such great quality.

The Sleek Brow Stylist is an obvious dupe for the much more expensive Hourglass Arch Sculpting pencil. Available in three shades, I have dark, it has a angled, waxy pencil at one end and a handy brush at the other. It was a very affordable €6.99 which compared to the Hourglass version, it's a fraction of the price.

This was surprisingly my favourite Sleek product I tested out. I thought the colour was actually very god for a high street brand. It wasn't too dark or too red. It is also so quick to use. Just a few strokes through the brow and I'm done!

sleek i-divine au natural eyeshadow palette

My last Sleek purchase was the i-Divine Au Natural Palette. It's another bargain at €9.99 and contains 12 neutral shades. Again, I was impressed with the quality of the shadows and how great the mix of mattes and shimmers was. My only gripe is that the dark colours were a little cool toned for my liking but I can't fault what you get for the price.

Having Sleek make-up in my local has been a very exciting discovery. I think there make-up is really impressive and I just can't wait to head back for more.
