Sleek is a UK makeup brand that I’ve wanted to try for some time now. When they had a 20% off everything sale a couple weeks ago, combined with lower shipping rates to the United States, I decided to purchase a few things! For those in the United States curious about shipping, I only paid $3.50 shipping for my entire purchase. I placed my order on August 28, and it was here by September 7- incredibly quickly for overseas!
Sleek Pout Paint is the UK dupe for OCC Lip Tars. I did some research first to make sure that I did not purchase actual dupes of the lip tars I have already. The pink shade is called “Milkshake”, and the orange shade is called “Peachy Keen.” The packaging on the back even states: “FYI, a little goes a very long way!” Pout Paint is a lot more affordable than Lip Tars at $6.50 each, whereas OCC Lip Tars are $15.
The Sleek Blush By 3 in Pumpkin is what originally caught my eye in terms of this brand. I saw this on another beauty blog and was smitten! There are other blush palettes I considered trying instead, but since this is what made me look into the palette, I decided to go with this one after all. Just look at that orange shade! I’m really hoping it isn’t too warm for my skin tone, because it’s so beautiful in the pan. The Blush By 3 palettes are $12.49 each.
This is the Creme to Powder Tester Kit in Light. The Creme to Powder Foundation carries this description:
“Crème to Powder Foundation provides a super-smooth finish, with medium-to-full coverage that is perfect for concealing dark circles and blemishes.”
The tester kit is available in four different shades: Fair/Light, Light, Light/Medium, Medium, Medium/Dark, and Dark. This is a great color range! I suggest looking for swatches online first if you get this kit. The Light/Medium looked to dark for me, so I went with Light and am so glad that I did after seeing the colors in person! The tester kit is $4 while the full size product is $9.99.
The final item I purchased was the New Skin Revive Tester Kit in Light. As you can see, the colors are the same names as the Creme to Powder kit. Description:
“New Skin Revive is a silicone based light-to-medium coverage liquid foundation that transforms the appearance of skin on contact. This oil free, weightless formulation with smoothing silicone properties is so light it creates a naked feel to the skin, for a beautiful natural finish.”
Again, I’m glad that I purchased the Light kit since even if these colors aren’t a perfect match, they will all be wearable and workable. The tester kit is $4.50, while the full-size foundation is $9.99.
I can’t wait to start using these products and will likely post some individual reviews on them. I’d also love to hear if anyone else has tried this brand! 🙂
