Sleek Makeup’s Nude Collection

Another incredible collection bought out by Sleek.  This range hits Superdrug stores on 31st August and it will become part of the permanent collection (so it’ll be easy to get your hands on it!).

The collection includes the Au Naturel I-Divine Palette, Suede Blush and Bare Minimum Pout Polish.

Au Naturel I-Divine Palette (£6.49)

1

This palette is really beautiful and filled with a mix of shimmer and matte, brown, nude and beige shades.  I personally prefer shimmer eye shadows, of which there are only 4 in this 12-shadow palette.  I think the matte shades are very pretty, but are quite pale and chalky and not as ‘intense’ or as stunning as the shimmer shades.  Saying this, the mattes are perfect for creating a soft natural look.

My favourites are Taupe and Mineral Earth.  I am also SO impressed with Noir in this palette – I wasn’t expecting it to be so black and pigmented, it is the most perfect black for a smokey eye look. 

Suede Blush (£4.29)

This is the product I am most in awe of in this collection.  It is just gorgeous.  A nice natural blush with a hint of beach and brown.  I know that I will be wearing this throughout autumn and winter this year to define my cheekbones and to keep my skin looking fresh and revived.

Bare Minimum Pout Polish (£4.29)

The colour in the pot of this is stunning, a gorgeous peachy brown nude, but on the lips this comes out really sheer, more like a clear gloss.  It feels lovely and moisturizing on the lips, smells gorgeous and will last ages, so its a thumbs up in my books, I just wish it had a tad more colour.  (I have been using it over my Sleek ‘Barely There’ lipstick and it looks great.)

My own look using the products!

I decided to play around and create a dark smokey gothic look using the three products from this collection.  This was really fun to do with the intense, smokey dark colours in the palette.  The nude lip and natural brown blush complete the face, making the eyes the statement part of the look.
