Mini Sleek Haul!


After having to restrain myself on the Sleek website while I was ill last week, I placed a modest little order that I was hotly anticipating. I'm sure you've all heard of Sleek by now, with every woman and her grandma instagramming or blogging about its neat packaging and wow-factor pigmentation. Unfortunately for me, after looking in every drugstore I could find near where I live, I couldn't find a stand anywhere!
So in the name of a bit of retail therapy to make myself feel better I placed my order on the website last week. A nightmare with the courier service later (they weren't bad, I'm just never home!) I finally recieved it earlier today and I so incredibly excited by my choices...


I knew before I'd ordered that I couldn't leave empty-handed in the lipstick department. I have a huge lack of matte shaded in my collection so I went for this gorgeous looking red lipstick in the colour 'Russian Roulette'. After swatching, I am massively impressed by the pigmentation and can already tell I'm going to love this! The packaging on everything is so simple and sophisticated too, and I love how handy a size the lipsticks are!


I also decided to go for something a bit different for me and picked up a nude/coral shade of lipstick, which looks beautiful! I'm not sure if it will suit me as the colour looks quite strong but I'm excited to give it a go and try something new! It's a sheen formula with this one, in the colour 'Barely There' if y'all want to try it too!


After the unfortunate demise of half of my makeup bag stash, due to a collision with a wall (cheers boyfriend...), one of the things I have been without is an eyebrow colour! To be fair I was in need of a change anyway as I was using a rather scruffy Collection eyeshadow duo all mixed in to one that did the job but had definitely seen better days. So after hearing this raved about, I picked up one of the Brow Kits in Light. It comes with a coloured wax for shaping and then a powder shade for filling it in. With a mini pair of shaped brushes and little tweezers too, this one looks like a winner!
Upon opening, I was concerned that I'd bought too light a  shade as the darker ones looked far too dark on the website, but after swatching I think this will work for me just fine!


The last thing I picked up was the Professional Finishing Powder, which I am interested to try out. I've never used a powder to set my makeup before, but thought I'd try this one out paired with my super soft new EcoTools powder brush! 


I am super happy with all of my purchases so far and I'll definitely be back for more as I sadly didn't pick up any of their notoriously brilliant palettes!
Do you have any Sleek makeup in your collections? What are your favourites?

Always, Alice x

  10. Oh gosh, this all looks so lovely. I recently moved to Glasgow from Canada, and I'm still a bit overwhelmed by all the makeup options I didn't have back at home! I've been scoping out a tonne of Sleek products - you've definitely helped me narrow down my options.
