Sleek Pout Polish

I found these in a Superdrug and had to pick up a few to try! These are essential tinted lip balms that are enriched with natural oils to soften your lips. I purchased "Chocolate Kiss 948" which is pretty much a rich chocolate brown colour, "Lemon Meringue 943" (which is a limited edition colour no longer available online but should be available in stores if you ask the assistants) which is a bright vibrant yellow, "Pink Cadillac 947" which is a deep Barbie pink and lastly "Rasberry Souffle 944" which is also a limited edition one. The polishes are all very pigmented and stain your lips long after they have been moisturised meaning that the colour lasts a long time and therefore these can be worn alone or layered over. They aren't the most hydrating product for your lips but they aren't the worst either. The major down side for me is that they all smell the same, it is a nice scent but I would have prefered if they matched the names to the scents! Also they don't taste the best either :( All in all they have some really pretty colours and I love the names they have for them. The limited edition packaging is alot prettier aswel but I suppose that makes them even more special! lol comment below if you have any other colours you think I should get!

Sleek Acid Post

Another old post....

I recently purchased my first Sleek eyeshadow palettes (I know I know, they have been around forever lol). I lusted over Sleek products for a long long time and then I stumbled across a display for them in a Superdrug in the North. So of course I had to purchase as much as I could afford and carry! :D 

One of the palettes was the Acid one which has AMAZING neon colours to create really fun and vibrant looks. Their shadows are amazing! Really soft and pigmented and last all day with no creasing! However the white doesn't give that greatest of a colour pay off. All the palettes come with a matt black and are a mix of matt and shimmer shadows. All in all i can't wait to try loads of looks with this palette. I have a few Sleek products now but the nearest stockist to me in 2 hours away and been having trouble ordering from their online store! :( May just have to go on a road trip some day! lol

Collection 2000 Eye Palette

This is something I posted on Luuux a while ago but thought I would transfer over here ........

"Angelic" swatches in order they come in

"Poptastic" swatches in order

I recently went to Superdrug and they were having 3 for 2 on selected lines of Collection 2000 including their eyeshadow palettes. I have wanted them ever since I seen MsBudgetBeauty review them on YouTube! They come in 2 colours - "Angelic" and "Poptastic". Angelic is the more subtle of the two with more neutral earthy types of colours. Poptastic on the other hand is more vibrant colours. They both give pretty decent colour payoffs, however the more matt shadows can be a bit chalky and cause a lot of fall out so you would need to be careful with the more pigmented colours! They are great value for money and would be a great gift for any age group as there are varied colours and textures in both palettes! Pretty sure these are still available and there are generally various offers on for Collection 2000. Think they cost around £4.99 each.
