Upcoming releases from Sleek...

Sleek will be coming up with some new exciting collections and some lovely new eye shadow palettes this spring/summer.

There is a Caribbean collection for sure - which is all super bright and funky, A Mediterranean collection, which I have to show you below and a Nude Collection which you NEED in your life!

The Mediterranean collection comes with a Eye shadow palette, a Blusher and a Pout Polish as always.

Now some people are going to cringe or scream of shock horror looking at this blusher, but I personally am a blush collector and feel that every different colour out there needs to be in my train case hence I love it to bits.

Santorini is an intense looking blue toned hot pink in the pan, however suprisingly enough it is not scarily pigmented and if used sparingly with a stippling brush, gives this very unique pinch of colour to the face. 

It's a stunner and one not to be missed! Not every one's cup of tea as I said, however a must-have for the blush collectors out there. 

The Pout Polish in Monte Carlo on the other hand is pretty wearable for everyday and in fact is the least pigmented one from Sleek till date. I guess they realised they needed to keep the lips toned down to compliment the intense blusher and a good job they did.

It gives the cutest bright pink tint to the lips and moisturises them so well. A lovely everyday colour. Not a must-have but check it out in store for sure. 

The eye shadow palette in Monaco is  as usual is the show stopper of the collection in my opinion. I mean I don't quite get the selection of the colours in this palette as they don't fit a particular theme or a particular colour family. Having said that, they are all so unique on their own that I love them. 

A well balanced mix of shimmery and matte shades in here. The shimmery shades are obviously intensely pigmented, almost like they are foiled. The matte's are pretty soft in texture and moderately pigmented, just the right texture in my opinion.

It gets a 'grab-it' status from me!

I also have a sneak peek of the most awaited Sleek Au Naturel  Palette from their Nude collection (no, that's not what its officially called lol) and the colours look scrumptious for everyday wear. I know I'll be getting this for sure and will hit pan on most the colours as I am a neutral kinda girl. 

I will post swatches, Fotds, Eotds with the Mediterranean collection soon, so keep your eyes peeled ladies. 

The Mediterranean Collection will be released on 8th June, the Caribbean on 6th July and the Nude on 31st August 2011. 

Anything that tickles your fancy?

Loving the Monaco, Sleek are fab for their combination of matte and shimmer, have a feeling this is going to be my first Sleek purchase, great photos btw. x

Ahh! I really need to get that nude palette! So pretty, and it would be useful to take one small palette away with me :) xxx

I know Sleek palettes are amazing, but never picked one up as I'm not a huge eye shadow girl, plus I've always had shades similar to those offered - but this palette looks so, so beautiful and I don't have many of the colours it contains. I will definitely pick this up and love the blush too, there's no such thing as too vibrant in my mind :o)
I'm really intrigued by the Caribbean palette, I love all things Caribbean!!
I don't think I'll pick up the nude palette, whilst it is beautiful I have the Naked palette so can't really justify it, though may buy it for a friend or contest giveaway etc.
Great post x
