Sleek Ultra Mattes Brights | Swatches + Review

Recently I finally purchased 2 Sleek Palettes. I have never tried Sleek Palettes before these two and had wanted to for a while. I knew I wanted 2 palettes from Sleek and seeing as I am loving matte finishes at the moment I thought I'd purchase the 2 all matte versions Sleek offers. 

In this post I'll be talking about Version 1 which is the Brights Palette.



I love that the shades have actual names

First Row

Chill | This is a pale blue shade with good pigmentation. Its more pigmented than it seems in the photo.

Pout | This is a hot pink shade with some red tones in it with great pigmentation.

Sugarlite | This purple has poor pigmentation.

Dragon Fly | This is a dark mossy green with decent pigmentation, better than the photo.

Pucker | This is more of a bold hot pink with good pigmentation.

Bammi | This is a neon bold yellow with great pigmentation for a yellow.

Second Row

Cricket | This is more of a lighter green, a truer green with great pigmentation.

Bolt | This bold blue shade has brilliant pigmentation.

Strike | This is a bold neon orange with brilliant pigmentation.

Floss | This is a pale pink with better pigmentation than the photo shows.

Crete | This is a light grey shade with good pigmentation.

Pow! | This is just a plain white with good pigmentation.

There are some amazingly pigmented shades and some good pigmented shades in this palette. The purple shade let me down a lot but 1 out of 12 is pretty good.

The lasting power of these are great when I use a primer (E.L.F primer).

There are so many looks I can create with this palette and I already have but that's for another post. I can't wait to show you all the looks I've enjoyed creating.

I'm so glad I purchased this, this is the start to my experimenting and the pigmentation of these shadows are great, the level I'd expect from a brand like Urban Decay.

What's your favourite Sleek product or palette?

Thanks for reading,
Shona x

    1. :) I bought it more for experimenting but after trying them I would wear the shades out when used with some more neutral shades, they are easier to wear than they look, you just have to play around with them :) x

    1. Like I said above, you'd be surprised how much you can make them work, I'm going to be doing a series of posts showing looks that are more experimental and then ones I've actually been wearing out xx
