Sleek MakeUP Eye & Cheek Palette


When it comes to affordable palettes with pigmented colours, Sleek MakeUP are at the top of the game. After giving us amazing blushers, they moved into blush trio palettes, and their eyeshadow palettes are the hero of the range. Now, we have the Eye & Cheek Palette Dancing Till Dusk which combines eye shades from the i-Divine Au Naturel Palette along with Mirrored Pink and Sahara Blushers. This has created a really wearable ‘nude with a pop’ palette that has matte and irredescent shades and can take you from day to night. Starting with the blushers – Sahara is a very brown beauty friendly matte (hallelujah) orange-brown. On the bloggersphere it is considered to be a dupe from NARS Laguna which is a bronzer for light to medium skintones. If you have a deeper complexion it is a gorgeous ‘natural’ blush shade which makes you look like you but better.

You don’t need a great technique or a specialist brush to apply it, just whack it onto the apples of your cheeks and away you go. If you have a lighter complexion you may be able to use it to bronze or contour so it is a great addition to the palette. The other blush is mirrored pink which again is a great colour for all skin tones. A perfect pop of colour that you can blend with Sahara or wear on it’s own.

There are two iridescent eyeshadows in a Champagne tone and a Deep Chocolate tone and two matte shades in a mid brown and a dark brown, so you can create a multitude of looks and take this palette from day to evening with ease. I do not consider myself to be a ‘neutrals’ girl but I have had a lot of fun with this palette and have used the Mirrored Pink Blush as an eyeshadow. There are some teens in my life who I know will love this but equally my pals who are not make-up junkies and just want one palette that can do most things. The packaging is plastic but robust and thankfully you don’t have to use your nails to open it. Definite thumbs up.

The Dancing Till Dusk Palette retails at £9.99 and is available to buy from the Sleek MakeUP website and from Superdrug.
