I was on the hunt for some new eye shadows for graduation, a friend of mine said I should try Sleek's eye shadow palettes and I was a little skeptical because I thought, why would I buy a whole palette when I haven't even heard of the brand, let alone used or tried any of their products? So there I was browsing through all the make up boots had to offer, and I came across the Sleek section... I was drawn in by the packaging and before I knew it I was looking through all the eye shadow palettes! There was quite a few to chose from, once I opened the ultra mattes palette, I was sold! BUT WAIT! There was a 3for2 offer at Boots so it would be silly not to get three!
|vintage ROMANCE palette £7.99|
The vintage ROMANCE palette is filled with dark purples and pinks, I've been sporting a purple smoky eye on countless occasions and I tend to get compliments on them every time!
|original palette £7.99|
The original palette is filled with sparkly shadows, perfect for this time of the year with all the Christmas and New Year parties to go to!
|ultra mattes V2 DARKS palette £7.99 (technically free)|
I have yet to try the ultra mattes V2 DARKS palette but it looks intriguing, I think I will be using these colours as a base for my eyeshadows, I heard matte eye shadow bases tend to help prolong your eyeshadow wear so I will give that a go!
I think these are all great little gifts, or a nice way to change up your eyeshadow routine! All the shadows are highly pigmented, adding a burst of colour to any look. If you are like me and you are used to natural make up looks then I must warn you that you should perhaps experiment with these colours before you wear them out, just to get an idea as to how these colours could work with each other and also to find a look that you are comfortable with wearing out!
A perfect gift for anyone who likes experimenting with their eye make up or a bold and exciting change to help jazz up your friends' regular eye shadow routine!
