Oh So Sleek.

Those of you who are into beauty will be no stranger to the name Sleek. I remember this brand from when I was younger but it seems to have grown so much and increased in popularity over the last few years. Here's a peek at some of their products that they recently sent to me. 

I've heard plenty of talk about CC creams before but I've never used one, nor did I understand what they were. For those of you who are just as clueless as I was, CC stands for Complexion Corrector. This Sleek CC Cream* is one of the brand's newer products and it's available in 4 shades. I like the pointy nozzle as it means you won't end up squeezing too much product out. I've never used a BB/CC cream before, nor do I ever use liquid foundation, so this took a bit of getting used to! The texture is really smooth, goes on well, and my skin still feels breathable. Whilst I doubt I will be using this on a daily basis, it'll be great for days when I feel like I want a bit more coverage.

Funnily enough, I was recommended this Face Contour Kit* a month ago by a fellow blogger. This is a duo palette with a matte bronzer and an illuminating highlighter. I find it quite difficult to find matte bronzers, particularly affordable ones but this is definitely up to standard. I'm still getting to grips with the highlighter at the moment. I usually end up putting so much on that I look like I'm glowing (and not in a good way....) or I put too little on and you can't even see it. I love the large mirror that comes with this, and I think that's one of the great things about the Sleek palettes. 

2-in-1 products are great ways to save space in your make-up bag! This is the Eyebrow Stylist*, with an angled eyebrow pencil on one end and a grooming brush on the other. The formula is smooth and matte. Unfortunately, the pencil is a bit too light for me but I've been loving using the grooming brush. It's amazing how much difference neat eyebrows can make to a face.

  9. I love Sleek products! The palettes especially are such good value for money, I have the blush by 3 and the face form kit and I use them just as much for the mirrors as I do for the actual products inside!

    Great post, I've been considering buying the Eyebrow Stylist and as my eyebrows aren't toooo dark it might just be OK for me.

  11. I love Sleek too! Their blushes are my absolute fave especially Flushed. I've not tried their foundations or CC cream as I don't think they would have my shade.
