Sleek Nude Collection... Close but No Cigar!

I was rather excited to hear that Sleek Makeup were bringing out a nude collection.


Famous for their highly pigmented, super affordable eyeshadow palettes, the Nude Collection palette looked like it was right up my street: a good selection of light to dark, matte and shimmery shadows in their signature sleek case.

But I'm sad to say, the palette had a problem. Almost all of the light colours are so badly pigmented they barely show up. This is something I normally expect from drugstore makeup brands, but it's quite unusual for Sleek.


Having said that... the darker colours are gorgeous and the matte black is great (quite a rare thing, even amongst high end brands!) Its definitely great value for only £6.49 but it could have been so much better!

As for the rest of the collection. It's pretty don't get me wrong, but it's nothing to write home about...

The blush (£4.29) is a pretty natural peach shade that is just a little too brown for my liking.

As for the lip conditioner (£4.29)? Woof loved it!

The aftermath... (Only the boyfriend could prize it out of those jaws!)

*Off I trot to wring her neck!*


Overall, the collection isn't bad, but I was disappointed.


The nude collection is a permanent addition and will be available from 31st August both online and in Superdrug stores.
