Sleek Make Up | New Releases

Last week I was lucky enough to attend the Sleek Gold press event for their new A/W releases which may I say rather exciting. The event itself was hosted by Sarah-Jane Crawford of Xtra Factor fame with music from the Festival Foxes and a catwalk show to keep us entertained. I was also able to get my nails painted which was an opportunity to try out the Sleek Gel nail colours which have a pretty impressive opaque look in one coat.

But let's talk about the new releases, two eye and cheek palettes and a swoon worthy highlighting palette which I'll put out there right away is my favourite of the three.

Both palettes featuring two blushes and four eyeshadows from the Sleek range. See You At Midnight is what I'd refer to as the evening palette and for those wanting a darker look. The eyeshadow's are from the Romance i-Diving Palette and the blushes are Pomegranate and Antique. The blushes are perfect for the Autumn season and both are shades I have in my collection as singles. Pomegranate is a berry shade which whilst a light hand is needed is gorgeous and for the shimmery lovers Antique hits the spot. Eyeshadows are shades of blue and purple and perfect for taking a simple eye look from day to night so this is definitely one I'll be stashing in my drawer at work to take me from desk to disco as the party season approaches.

Dancing Till Dusk is also autumnal in its tones or orange and brown and probably the more wearable of the two and the one I would naturally reach for on a daily basis. I could happily throw this in my make up bag and put together a look for the office or a day shopping at the weekend. Eyeshadows are from the Au Naturel i-Divine palette and the blushes are mirrored pink and Sahara neither blush I had tried before this.

Both palettes are a bargain at £9.99 and a worthy make up staple.

Moving on to my favourite item from the collection, the Precious Metals Highlighting Palette which contains three cream and one powder blush. The palette itself has moved away from the traditional 'sleek' black packaging and is a shiny gold which was a b*****d to photograph hence it's been omitted from this post. My highlighting collection doesn't contain any cream products so it was great to try something new.

The palette features a white/silver shade called Platinum and two not dissimilar colours Royal and Renaissance Gold which are obviously gold. Antique Bronze the powder highlighter is a, again as the name suggests, bronze tone which a lighter is needed. I find this not too disimilar to Magnetic Appeal from Mac which I have been using of late to give both colour and highlight in one swipe.

As I repeatedly share with you in my posts I pop my make up on during my journey to work so a palette such as this is great as of course cream products lend themselves very well to finger application.
I can't wait to get more use out of this and the eye and cheek palettes as the party season approaches.

And finally to end on please enjoy my littel gif I put together from the fashion show at the event, when two pictures call for such a creation you can't ignore it.
