What you MUST try in 2011 - Sleek Palettes

I thought it would be quite fun doing a series of must-try item for the new year. Blogging is all about recommendations and suggestions right? So what better than sharing with everyone what I enjoyed using the past year.

If you have tried out Sleek palettes then I'd love to know your thoughts about them. If you haven't then I urge you to ladies!

I know they have been talked about so much in blogosphere already that I do not need to introduce you to them, however they can still get away with a little more raving for sure.

They come with a gorgeous array of 12 colours packed in what I can describe as the 'sleekest' palette a drugstore can have till date. There is something so cute about their packaging that you'd just want to collect them for that! The shadows are so pigmented, they can put MAC and Nars to shame quite a few times you know.

If you are a high maintenance chic and would not even pop in to drugstores if it wasn't for cotton wool, then just keep your pretentious side aside for a while and pick one palette just for fun. I bet you won't regret and will secretly even enjoy them ;) They have tremendously improved their shadow texture from cheap metallic to a gorgeous sheen so you won't have anyone notice anything close to drugstore makeup.

And if you have been staying far away from these because the colours scream 'circus' to you, then just skip the Circus palette and try the rest. People are unaware but Sleek actually do some of the best neutral shades in town. Storm, Bad Girl and Safari would be just perfect!

If you want to have sneak peak of the brand, just click on 'Sleek' from the left side bar. I know they ain't available in quite a few countries and people don't get to try them out often but did you know they deliver internationally now too?

No, I am not raving about them for the sake of it. I really ♥ them!


p.s. It's exam time girlies hence the lack of posts :( Doing a Masters ain't a piece of cake then eh :/

Agree! I've been able to get my hands on some of these palettes thanks to some international makeup exchanges and LOVE them! They need to come to Canada ;-)

Good luck on your exams!

Storm and Sparkle are my favourites, but I've got the Original, Safari and Sunset ones too. Even if you only like half of the colours in the palette, these are still great value for money!

I LOVE them! So far I have Storm, Sunset, Bad Girl, Good Girl, Sparkle, Circus, Original and Acid. I really want Safari though, but I found out about them too late. Let's just say I wouldn't be missing a single palette from now on :)
