Sleek Palette Swatch Spam!

Hey lovelies,

Today I have some Sleek swatch spam (try saying that 5 times fast) for you! This post is dedicated to the super sweet Nicola (Leona Carolina's Closet), who I was discussing my love for Sleek palettes with the other day. I have four already, but have been lusting after several others on Sleek's site. I would really like to try their lipsticks and blushes too.

Anyway, without further ado, here are swatches of the palettes I have. I've excluded poor Storm, because it really is in no condition to be shown here thanks to my darling son. Additionally, he dropped it again so most of the shades aren't even there any more! RIP Storm. You will be replaced soon!

All swatches are on my bare arm, no primer, in natural light.

Really nice pigmentation across the board in a fun selection of colours. I did find the bronze shade (second from right on the bottom row) to be a bit gritty and prone to fall out, though. I've also used the teal, the greens and the shimmery pinks in full eye looks, and I've really enjoyed using them.

I think it's fairly obvious which shades are my favourites here, haha! I love the gold shimmer in the lavender shade - on the lid it kind of takes over and you can't really tell it has a lavender base. That might be a con for some people, but purple doesn't flatter me so I quite like that. I also really like the brown and pink shimmers for everyday, and the matte dark brown works great in the crease or as a brow shade. The matte tan applies much better than it swatches, I have used that for a matte nude look quite often. I didn't expect to love the shimmery burgundy quite as much as I do - I've used it several times for smokey eyes, the burgundy really makes my green eyes come to life!

I haven't used this one all that much yet, but I can say the matte shades apply a hell of a lot better than they swatch. You can barely see them on my arm! The tan shimmer in the first row is gorgeous, I really like it as a lid shade. The brown shimmer (third from right, bottom row) is a bit of a disappointment, it's sheer and difficult to build up, and gritty, so not an enjoyable shadow to use round the eyes! I quite like the khaki brown/green - perhaps a dirty gold? on the bottom row, I've used it as a lid shade a few times.

Thanks for looking and commenting!
