Sleek Make-Up Nude Collection!

I have been pretty damn excited for this collection to be released as i am sure a lot of you guys were.

I gave you a sneak peak a few weeks back as i was lucky enough to preview the collection at a Superdrug event.

I have had a tough couple of weeks and it is going to stay that way for a little longer as i have an operation on my knee on Saturday :( Sad times but at least my knee will be fixed and i can get back to a normal life. I have some other news that i think i will share with you in a different post.

Anyway i am rambling but what i wanted to say was Sleek Make-Up super cheered me up when this dropped through my letter box on Saturday morning..it was just what i needed when i had had an awful night but i will explain that all soon.

God, i never normally ramble in my post's so just get on with it Sophie lol

Sleek Make-Up are set to release the Nude collection on the 31st of August and i have been lucky enough to get my hands on it now to share with you all.

The collection is really beautiful and is fab for all us nude lovers.

Au Naturel i-Divine Palette.

From the first look i fell in love with this palette, was slightly disappointed as the palette contains a lot more matte shades than shimmer and i am a shimmer girl however i have been using the shade 'Taupe' and 'Moss' everyday since i got it they are stunning shades. Perfect for an everyday nude smokey eye.

Taupe in the shade on the top row on the end and Moss in 2 shade on the bottom row.

Left to Right
Nougat, Nubuck, Cappuccino, Honeycomb, Toast, Taupe

There is one problem though *shock horror* i never have a problem with Sleek Make-Up products but i do this time :(

All of the lighter shades apart from 'Taupe' are really not pigmented at all!!! You can see from the swatches that they really aren't up to scratch compared to other i-Divine palettes. I really had to work these shades into my arm for them to even show up on my arm.

Crazy when Sleek Make-Up i-Divines are known for their pigmentation. I don't know if its something to do with my palette but please let me know if you feel the same.

However i really really love Taupe the last shade on the top row which could easily be a dupe for M.A.C Tempting and i can say that is the one shade that does have a lot of pigmentation.

Left to Right
Conker, Moss, Bark ,Mineral Earth, Regal, Noir

On another note i can definitely say that the bottom row is totally up to Sleek Make-Up standards and is sooooo pigmented and the colours are amazing.

The matte black is seriously such a dark pigmented matte black which is great for drugstore. I am just so seriously disappointed with lighter shades..this could have been the most perfect affordable palette at only £6.49 but those shades really let it down.

Suede Blush RRP £4.29

Onto the blush..personally is slightly dark for my skin tone as a blush but it has been the most perfect contour bronze colour.

It is totally matte and this is 100% really pigmented.

This is now my go to contour colour for my cheeks.

Bare Minimum Pout Polish RRP £4.29

I love and own near enough all the Sleek Make-Up Pout Polishes..they are so moisturising and i love the scent.

This one has a gorgeous nude gold sheen and is perfect for everyday. You can wear it alone or over your chosen lipstick.

Overall i do love this collection as i now have 2 perfect eyeshadows for an everyday look and i love the blusher for contouring i just think i am totally shocked that an i-Divine palette isn't as perfect as they normally are.

This collection is Permanent and will be available from the 31st of August on the Sleek Make-Up Website

What do you think? Do you think you will love this collection or be a little disappointed?



  1. Its a shame the lighter colours aren't as pigmented as you'd normally expect from sleek. Think I'll swatch this in store before considering buying, to see if it works on my pale skin.

    I hope sleeks standards are dropping in a rush to come out with more palettes.

  2. Sorry I meant I hope their standards aren't dropping.

  3. I saw the blush and pout polish in store today, to be honest I was pretty dissappointed. The blush is so dark for pale people but it would look fantastic on darker skin! I was really hoping it would be 'nude'. The pout polish was a bit too plain really, not massively different or interesting. I really wanted to love this collection :(

  4. I love the look of the pout polish!

  5. I cant wait for these to be available in stores.
    How do you get things sent to you to review?

  6. I have a sleek lipstick but I'm just not sure about the other products! The packaging it nice though.

  7. I'm not sure what I think about this one and if I want it or not reviews aren't to great so far.

  8. I'm NC15, and the first row show up brilliantly on me. Especially the first highlight colour that's barely noticeable on you. So strange, but it's fab for pale people like moi!

  9. Yikes! Never mind sleek, I hope your knee gets better & everything goes well with your operation!

  10. I will be picking this up next week, such a shame the lighter colours aren't pigmented. I think I will pick up the pout polish too, I don't own any of these but this colour looks gorgeous. I hope your operation goes smoothly! x x

  11. cant wait to try this - cant get it yet from Superdrug, have tried twice!
    great review and pics

  12. Gorgeous collection! Love the blush :)

    Hopefully you'll love my giveaway! Ends Wednesday at Midnight! Take a look :) www.clashingtime.blogspot.com <3

  13. I think I pass this collection. Sleek shimmer eyeshadows are great but the matte ones still need some work:)

  14. that looks great, loving nude colours!
