Sleek MakeUP is a brand that I’ve been loving ever since it first appeared on the shelves of my local Superdrug. Now this is even before the eyeshadow palettes were named i-Divine, back when I started collecting them they were called just the normal Sleek Palettes and I THINK there was only one palette, and it was not packaged the way they are now. What I’m trying to say is my love affair with them started right at the start of their launch and they still haven’t disappointed me yet! There is lots of exciting launches in the pipeline so I thought I’d share with you what to look out for and grab the minute they hit the shelves.
Current New ProductsBlush By Three
I really wish I knew these were coming out previous to buying lots of their blushes, if I did I would’ve bought all of these! The colours all compliment each other in the palettes and are so handy to use. The thing I like most about it is that they’ve thought about the fact that some people like different tones of the same colour as a blush, and not just one block colour. With this palette you have the option of using different tones if you wish to do so. And, how good are these for travelling? know that Lace is really popular and sold out at many stands but hopefully I will be able to get my hands on either Lace or Pumpkin soon! There are 5 different palettes and are all priced at £9.99
Upcoming LaunchesFace Form
You might already know from my last (very late) February favourite product post, that the Sleek MakeUP Contour Kit has been a firm favourite of mine for quite some time, however I have a feeling that it is about to be replaced sometime very soon. Sleek MakeUp have created a new product which doesn’t make you think, is it Blush vs Contouring, instead they pair them together with complimenting colours. This is a new palette with a contour colour, highlighter and a complimentary blush. It comes in 4 shades to match different skin tones. I love how now I probably won’t need to carry a blush when I’m travelling as I travel from London nearly every weekend. They will retail for £8.99
This is what the four palettes will be called and what they will contain:
Fair- Contouring powder, highlighting powder and Rose Gold Blush
Light- Contouring powder, highlighting powder and Rose Gold Blush
Medium- Contouring powder, highlighting powder and a bronzer
Dark- Contouring powder, highlighting powder and a darker bronzer
Although the face form does come in 4 shades however I have light and medium here to show you.
Base Duo Kit
Sleek MakeUP are launching a new foundation compact which consists of light coverage foundation and setting powder in one compact. The Base Duo Kit contains a foundation and setting powder with two mirrors (one in each compartment) and is really handy as you find two types of bases in one kit that compliment each other and not only do you not need to search for two matching bases, you don’t need to go digging through your bag/make up collection to touch up on your foundation. I love that they have so much colour range across all their foundations, and this one is no different. This kit comes in 18 different shades but that’s not what attracted my attention the most… what did was the SPF 15 the foundation contains. I actually have played around with this foundation at a launch, and found that it is light but you can build it to a heavier coverage and it dries to a semi-matte finish. This will launch in March and will retail at £12.49

Eua La La Pencils
Sleek MakeUP are launching these lovely pigmented pencils which you can literally use anywhere! They’e not limited to just lips or just eyes. I know realistically you can use any make up pencil anywhere you want, such as using a lip liner in your waterline but sometimes a pencil that works well on your lips won’t work as well on your eyelids and vice versa. When I swatched these pencils the consistency did seem rich and pigmented so I’d be really interested in trying them out! They hit Superdrug on the 11th of April and will be priced at £3.99 each. I’m loving the look of the red and orange one especially.
Overall I have been super excited about all the Sleek MakeUP 2012 launches especially the Face Form. I love how there are 3 new 2-in-1 products, and especially as I travel so much it makes it much more convenient. When I first got my UD Naked palette, I used to travel with that but now I’ve gone back to travelling with my Sleek MakeUP Storm palette as it’s so much more lightweight. I guess Sleek MakeUP always impress me with their lightweight packaging and I’m happy to see that they are still carrying this on with their latest products. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a sucker for luxury packaging but when it comes to travelling, convenience and comfort always win.
