- Sleek Au Naturel & Original Eyeshadow Palettes...

Left: Au Naturel Palette...

First up is this natural palette that's great for everyday use! Number 1. didn't show up well in the swatch but it's great to use as a brow highlighter. There are then a lovely selection of natural shades with a few shimmery shadows in there. Number 6. is a gorgeous nude shimmer which is so wearable. There is a dark brown and a charcoal black (9. & 12.) which are both great to line the lower lash lines with. I sometimes also do this with number 10. for a flash of gold. A number of the non-shimmer nude shadows could also be used to fill in brows if the shades are suitable for you!

Right: Original Palette...

For a less natural look is this palette. Now don't be put off by this array of shades as although they look bold, they really are wearable! Again, a charcoal black is amongst the selection (1.) which is suitable to use as liner like with the previous palette. This palette is definitely a lot more shimmery and contains a gorgeous selection of blues, greens, pinks & warmer tones. Once applied correctly and blended adequately, these shadows really do look lovely!

Overall, I think these Sleek palettes are great! At only 7.99 each from Superdrug (& currently 3 for 2), they really are affordable for such a range of shades. Also, each palette comes with a double ended applicator and a mirrored panel which is ideal when travelling. The only downside is the lasting power of the shadows, but at such a good price I can't really complain!

My next post will be based on different ways to wear a bright eye using this Original palette so stay tuned!

  12. I have the original palate and really haven't got much use out of it.
    I love Sleek but in my opinion the eye shadows aren't so great.
    Have you tried the contour kits? :)

  14. Ah, have fun backpacking!
    The Original palette is gorgeous. I've already got too many neutral palettes stashed up, and you can never have too many Sleek products, so :D
