#Beautybitch by Cathy Martin: Nothing Weak About Sleek Make Up

Nothing Weak About Sleek Make Up

This week I have handed over the #BeautyBitch mantel to my lovely intern Debra, a student on a beauty budget, who is especially broke after an expensive social life and some family gift-giving at Christmas. I tasked her with reviewing some products sent over to me by Sleek, check out what she had to say here:

Cream Contour Kit in Light: £10.99

Sleek is known for being a great alternative to expensive brands when it comes to contouring so I was very excited to get my hands on their cream contour kit. As the cream is very pigmented, I decided to go for the light shade as I didn’t want it to be overpowering. The cream is really smooth and easy to blend, meaning you can achieve both a natural everyday look and a more dramatic evening look as you need to change it up. With the six different colour options you can easily customise the exact colour contour to suit your face. This makes it perfect for a range of skin tones, plus, the bargain price will suit all budgets and allow for less expensive make up mistakes, should you make any. It’s easy to use and I love a compact with a large mirror, perfect for on the go and for those still unsure about contouring!

Diamond Decade i-Divine Limited Edition Eye Shadow Palette: £8.99

This gorgeous palette has been released to celebrate 10 years of Sleek makeup. I love the pink colours in this palette, they are perfect for a statement eye especially coming up to Valentine’s Day. The silver and darker shades are so pigmented and will look beautiful on their own for a more toned-down look. My favourite shade has to be the sparkly pink opal, it will be beautiful on a range of skin tones and will make your eyes pop. A great palette but as it’s limited edition I recommend getting your hands on it before it is gone!

MATTE ME Lip Gloss in Birthday Suit and Rioja Red £4.99

Matte lips are everywhere at the moment, every brand is doing a matte lip cream but Sleek has got it spot on with their formula. I cannot believe these are only £4.99 each – what a steal! The lip creams are easy to apply, smooth and comfortable on the lips and the best thing about them is that they last ALL DAY! They don’t smudge or bleed into the lines around your lips, they are perfect for day to night wear! The colours I tried were “Birthday Suit” a gorgeous brown nude, perfect for everyday wear and “Rioja Red” the ultimate matte red for a night out. I love that they don’t dry out your lips and I can’t wait to get my hands on more colours!

Sleek Face Form Contour Kit in Fair £9.99

If cream contour is not for you, then you need to try the Sleek Face Form Powder Contour kit, this is majorly pigmented so it’s amazing for retaining colour all day! You need to dust your brush so lightly in the powder to get a fantastic pay off. It is really easy to blend and is buildable depending on the look you want to go for. I used the Fair palette, you can also get Medium and Dark. It is great that Sleek provides products for a range of skin tones. There is definitely a colour to suit everyone. I also love the highlighter you get in the palette, it is perfect for a bit of shimmer and will look amazing for a night out. Again, this palette is fool-proof – it is so perfect for beginners but will also impress the makeup aficionados amongst us.

Sleek Highlighter Palette in Solstice £9.99

Now this palette takes “glow” to the next level… I am obsessed! This versatile face and body palette suits all skin tones and includes two baked powders, a lovely creamy highlight and one powder shimmer highlight. It has something for everyone and I love how it makes my cheekbones look. For a night out, use it on your body for a serious glow! It is pigmented but buildable at the same time, meaning you can achieve a subtle glow for daytime and for night time you can amp it up for a show stopping highlight.

Sleek Highlighter Palette in Solstice £9.99

I have been super impressed by Sleek’s make up range, it is incredibly well priced for the amazing quality of the makeup. The packaging is chic and robust and I can’t wait to try even more from the range.

Thanks for reading!
