fecking love a good bargain, I really do, myself and Mammy Daly are cut from the same cloth and would travel for miles if we thought we are going to get a great bargain. In the makeup world when you’re getting a good bargain you generally have to compromise on something, packaging (you all know how I love packaging), texture, blend-ability or pigment content. Well with Sleek, that compromise is sooooo small it hardly seems worth mentioning!
The packaging is fab, it’s a matte black similar NARS, the textures are kind of incredible for what you’re paying, it blends beautifully (I’ve only tried the powder blushes not eyeshadows yet) and the pigment content is off the scale! So be sure to use very little.
Since hitting our shores last year it has quickly built up a loyal following and has become one of the fastest growing high street brands on the market. It has shades to suit all skin tones, this is so rare in budget brands, even some of the huge hitters do not cater to black skin, which is so ridiculous.
Sleek has a huge following worldwide with Eva Longoria is a huge fan of the range. Three of the hero products in their range are the Sleek Pout Polish (€5.49), a creamy pink-peach tinted lip conditioning balm that nourishes whilst providing a subtle hint of colour and a natural sheen. Formulated with SPF 15 and natural oils such as almond oil, shea butter and Vitamin E, keeping lips protected and moisture locked in. Sleek I-Divine (€9.99), 12 shades of super-pigmented, long-lasting, mineral based eyeshadow, designed to suit all. Each i-Divine contains pearlescent shades, which contain mica particles that highlight and illuminate giving an overall radiant effect. Sleek Blush By 3 (€12.99), the ultimate cheeky palette offering you three times the impact. Includes three complementary shades, each designed with its own distinctive finish, from rich shimmers to intense matte shades.
Prices Range from €5.49 to €12.99 and it’s available nationwide and also on Boots.ie.
