The latest release to come from Sleek Makeup is the ‘Avoir La Peche’ collection. I was sent two items from the three-piece collection today and thought I’d do a little review for you all.
I must admit the packaging drew me in instantly… pretty peach flowers make the collection look cute and appropriate for spring time.
The ‘Pout Polish’ tinted lip conditioner in Sugar May did not disappoint. I love the colour, love the scent, love the consistency, love the product. It leaves you with a nice nude sheen to your lips and for £3.58 you can’t really go wrong. It’s also got SPF15 which is an added bonus!
The blush on the other hand, I was rather disappointed by. Rather than the pretty peach colour I was expecting, ‘Pan Tao’ is nothing less than a bright, luminous orange.
Perhaps wearable if using a very light hand on lighter skin tones, I think this blush is better left for those amongst us who have much deeper skin tones, as I find it hard to imagine it being flattering on anyone else. At £4.30 it won’t break the bank, but I definitely wouldn’t have bought this myself.
Last but not least, Sleek are also releasing an eyeshadow palette called ‘Paraguaya’ (which I wasn’t sent)
From looking at pictures and swatches online, I was actually pleasantly surprised to see that the colours do look fairly wearable (Considering peaches and corals can be hard to pull off, I wasn’t expecting that!) Having said that, there are definitely a few ‘dodgy’ orange shades, but if you like peachy eye shadows then this could be a winner. Sleek’s eyeshadow palettes are great quality and great value at only £6.49 for 12 shadows.
All in all? I think the concept and design of the packaging for this line was top notch, but the colour choices left a lot to be desired. Unless you’re a particular fan of orange cheeks and eyes, the pout polish is the only must-see product in this collection.
The new collection is available in selected Superdrug stores and online now.
