A Haul/Review of Sleek Makeup
A Canadians Perspective
I heard from Goss Makeup Artist of youtube a lot about sleek makeup and I also follow some lovely UK bloggers who have also talked about Sleek makeup and the great quality of it and the extremely affordable price. The only concern I did have before ordering was the shipping price and if customs would charge extra money. The shipping price was pretty decent not too outrageous and personally I think totally worth it. Here in Canada, Southern Ontario it cost ($13.50) to ship the package over air mail. I ordered the products on May 17th and Received them today on May 24th not a bad turnover time at all, I literally got an email the day after I ordered saying it was packaged and shipped to me. All of this was highly unexpected since I have had no experience getting shipments from overseas and that I was expecting a lot longer waiting time and a lot larger shipping price. I am highly pleased with everything Sleek at the moment from the packaging to the price to the shipping.
Being a self proclaimed Blushaholic I just could not choose just two colours, so due to the amazing price of ($6.50) at 8g or 0.27oz I decided to get five :S and I do not apologize in the least. They are amazingly pigmented, really smooth and creamy feeling, not chalky at all. The blushes come in a great rang of colours and shades. Some I purchased are shimmery such as pomegranate and other are matte such as scandalous.

Eyeshadow Palette In Storm (578) ($10.00) 12x1.1g or 12x0.03oz
A highly popular palette on youtube this is the reason I went on the Sleek website in the first place to purchase this specific product. This was slightly damaged when it came over "the pond". The matte black is chipped and some of the colours were smudged and I had to clean it up before taking the pictures. other than that I love this palette it has great colours for amazing looks, they are highly pigmented as you can tell by the swatches and they are smooth and creamy and not chalky which is really important to a quality shadow.
Peaches & Cream is a sheen finish and is very opaque in colour and glides onto your lips very smoothly it comes across on your lips as peachy and creamy as it looks in the bullet, this colour also feels very moisturizing. Papaya Punch is a matte finish and is great for the summer coral lip trend that everyone is strutting this spring and summer. Being a matte colour it is not moisturizing and seems a bit drying but if you prime your lips with lip balm before it is not a concern. What's also great about these lipsticks is that they contain vitamin E. The only thing about these I am not ecstatic about is the smell and taste, it is typical lipstick smell and taste At a price point of ($6.00) with 3.5g or 0.12oz they are totally worth the money.

Pout Polish in Electro Peach (Can you tell I am peach obsessed) a perfect shade for summer it has SPF 15 a great thing for a girl who works outside (remember girls you got to protect your lips too not just your face and body!) similar to MACs tinted lip conditioners ($17.50) at 15g or 0.507oz they are at a fraction of the price ($6.50) 10g or 0.340z. The pout polish is highly opaque and really smooth and smells amazing. I love potted things, other people have a problem with potted products because of the germ aspect but I have no concerns with that.
In conclusion I will definitely be purchasing sleek cosmetics in the future. I hope they will be launching there products in North America because they are high quality at an affordable price just like NYX cosmetics in North America.
