A Visit to Superdrug: Sleek Make-Up

Sleek is a UK brand not currently sold in Canada (and the sleekmakeup.com site doesn’t ship here). Sleek is a favourite of Youtubers Pixiwoo, so on a recent trip to England I stopped by a Superdrug to check it out.

I picked up two of their famous I-Divine eyeshadow palettes in Au Naturel and Storm (9.99 pounds each). There were some other palettes I was interested in but they didn’t carry the entire 15 palette line.

The palettes reminded me of NYX palettes: a bit hit and miss. Some of the colours are great and pigmented, but others aren’t, and some have quite a lot of fall-down.

I also picked up a single blush in Coral (5.99 pounds). The packaging is really similar to Nars blushes, which these have been compared to. All of the shades I swatched in the store were VERY pigmented; Not many seemed suited to fair skin, but would be great for darker skin tones. I like the coral shade though and I have found it long wearing.

I got one of their “Blush By 3” trios in Sugar (12.49 pounds).

Again, these are really pigmented! Sugar was one of the lightest trios they had. The first colour (on the left) is nice if used with a light hand, and the third shade (on the far right) is quite nice. The centre shade I initially thought was bronzer, but it is really shimmery and red-toned. I probably won’t use it as blush, but maybe as an eyeshadow.

Finally, I had to try a Pout Polish tinted lip balm (5.99 pounds).

Love the packaging! The lip balm has an SPF15 and a very slight coconut scent. The colour (powder pink) doesn’t really show up, but its a nice lip balm.

I do wish Sleek was available in Canada because there are lots of other products in the line that I would like to try.
