My Sleek Palettes

I've been wanting to swatch my 3 Sleek palettes for so long so here they are! They are all swatched on top of L'oreal decrease primer- only because I've had it for ages and want to get rid of it haha

Sleek Storm


As you can probably tell I've had this palette for the longest. It's got a lovely range of neutrals but can be hard to show up sometimes. I use the darkest brown for my eyebrows. Apparently the first gold is a dupe for MAC's Woodwinked (I don't have it so I wouldn't know, if anyone has both please LMK! I was going to buy WW but I didn't because of this reason lol). One of my fave's is the highlighting colour, it is so beautiful. The black is the only gripe I have in this palette, barely any pigmentation there!
Top: Natural light, bottom: Flash. I had to swipe the black the most to get some decency. I'm sure this palette dupes a few colours!

Sleek Badgirl
 This is the most perfect palette for smokey eyes EVER. Everything is so pigmented, especially the black which is why I use it so often! This is the only Sleek palette I have that has names for the shadows.
Top Row: Innocence, Gullible, Blade, Gun Metal, Underground, Noir
Bottom: Intoxicated, Envy, Obnoxious, Abyss, Twilight, Rebel.
However a sad few weeks ago I dropped this onto the cold, hard tiles.
*cries* It's a lot worse than it looks lol. Onto the swatches
The 2nd colour was hard to swatch as I think there's some of the silver in it :( but you can see the gist of the colour. There's a mixture of mattes & shimmers in this palette, as you can hopefully see, but there's more shimmer. The only difference for the 2 blacks on the 1st row is that the 2nd black from the right is shimmery and the other (my fave Noir) is matte.

Sleek Acid
My newest palette, I wasn't going to get it until I saw some beautiful looks, but I haven't managed anything spectacular yet. It consists of mostly matte shades apart from the 4 on the right on both rows. You definitely need a white base with these for the best pigmentation.
The white is definitely the most disappointing, probably 'coz it's matte lol, I couldn't even cover the primer! Trust me these swatches don't do it justice. The shimmerys look divine though.

So that's it! I really like my Sleek palettes and can definitely recommend the ones I have. The other one I really want is the Sunset palette but that will have to wait a while lol. I think I've bought most of these from vanitypalace on ebay for I think $10? And shipping is reasonable so I'd recommend them.
Thanks for looking I hope this is helpful!

  7. I still don't own anything from sleek. Always say i would but i never end up buying anything. I hardly ever buy myself makeup only foundation, concealer, powder and mascara. I spend or my $$ on my makeup kit :(

    One day i shall own something from sleek.

    Sorry to hear you dropped your sleek palette. if you're wanting to fix your eyeshadows you can do it with alcohol.

  10. I have the Original, Bad Girl, Acid, Oh So Special, and Matte V2 palettes... I think out of all of them the matte one is my favorite. I love the Bad Girl palette too! Ah I just love all of them! But I have to use a white cream base under those Acid mattes... Sleek palette are awesome =)
