I've been a big fan of Sleek for some time now, stocking up either on Cloud10 Beauty or any time I've been in the UK. Although we've been able to test out the products at limited stands here for a while now, the brand have just last week officially launched in Ireland so we now have access to the full range of Sleek products! Huzzah!
This is good news for a few reasons. Sleek are just an excellent drugstore brand; they're reasonably priced so you can splash out on a full new face of make up without feeling guilty (prices range from €5.49 to €12.99) but you also know that you're getting good quality for your money. In further good news, they cater for fair to dark skin tones and they do not test on animals so you can add those to your "Sleek are awesome" list.
I've collected below some of my favourite bits and pieces from the brand and at the end there's a giveaway so you can experience the brand for yourselves!
This is one that Sleek are actually renowned for. I only own three, which in beauty blogging terms is somewhat embarrassing but for normal people, that's fine! Anyway, the ones that I have cover the main eye looks I go for; smokey nudes and a dark smokey eye. First up is the Au Naturel palette. Twelve shadows in a mixture of mattes and shimmers, this has everything you need for both natural day time looks and more interesting night time looks.
The Vintage Romance palette however, definitely lends itself more to an evening look and more colourful smokey looks, if you're bored of the same old dark shadows.
Lastly and this is a relatively new find for me, are these i-Quad kits, that you guessed it, come with 4 shades- in this case, three eyeshadows and a liner. Everything you need (except mascara obviously) all in one handy little kit…clever, eh?
Blush and Contour Palettes
While I have individual blushes from the brand (including the much loved Rose Gold), it's the Lace Blush by 3 palette that I return to the most. Chantilly is a coral toned matte orange, Guipure is a shimmery rose gold and Crochet is a light matte orange. They look scary in the pan and you do need a light hand with these because they are so very pigmented but they are also very flattering on and can be layered together to create new looks.

I have the contour kit in light. You can read a full review of that and the Lace palette HERE.
This is about my third or fourth of these dinky little eyebrow kits and it's easy to see why- they contain everything you need for a perfectly groomed brow. Powder (with no hint of redness in there- not that easy to find in a brow product for blondes) and a setting wax to prevent any loose hairs from flying about the place. There's also two brushes and the world's cutest tweezers.
I mentioned this gorgeous lipstick in THIS post of my favourite berry shades (this is Cherry) but there are plenty of different lip options from the brand, including the new Matt Me liquid lipsticks, which I'll be writing about once I've had a decent try of it!
Sleek is available in pharmacies nationwide and on the Sleek website, HERE.
And now for the giveaway! The very lovely PR folks working with Sleek provided me with some gorgeous products to try and as I have already blogged about most of those (being a big Sleek fangirl) I've decided to share the love!
