Brand Focus | Sleek MakeUP

Today we're focusing on Sleek MakeUP and 5 of their makeup products. I'm a huge fan of Sleek MakeUP as a brand and I thoroughly enjoy using their products, the quality for the price is simply amazing. So without further ado, let's get into the post! 

Let's begin with the Base Duo Kit. It is perfect for travelling because you have your foundation and powder in the one compact so your base is practically sorted. I'm in the shade Linen which is the lightest shade and it matches my skin tone perfectly. The foundation is cream based and it contains Vitamin E and Jojoba Oil to moisturise the skin, so it doesn't emphasize any dry areas which is nice. It has quite good coverage and it blends well into the skin, giving you a flawless finish. The finishing powder is semi-translucent so it doesn't add much coverage but it does the job at setting your foundation in place. It doesn't do much in terms of oil control so I like to use this during the colder months. I also like that it has a mirror which is really convenient for touching up on the go. 

If you love neutral toned eyeshadows, you'll love the i-Divine Au Naturel palette. It holds 12 beautiful matte and shimmer shades and they range from light to dark, so you can easily transform your day look to a sultry, smoky eye with the the one palette. All of the shades are very nicely pigmented and they blend like a dream. My favourite 3 shades are Mineral Earth, Conker and Regal. Mineral Earth is such a unique shade. Like Conker, it has fine pink shimmer throughout and I think it looks stunning across the lid. I really enjoy the range of shades in this palette.

The shade Peaches & Cream from the True Colour Lipstick range is perfect for wearing during Spring and Summer. It's a light peach shade with a sheen finish and the formula is so creamy, it just glides over your lips. The pigmentation is also incredible and it's enriched with Vitamin E to keep your lips feeling hydrated and comfortable. There are over 30 shades in this range from brights, darks and nudes so there is a colour to suit everyone. The actual tube is tiny compared to a regular sized lipstick, but you still get a good amount of product in it. Great for carrying in your handbag or clutch bag because it will barely take up any space. I'd definitely like to get my hands on more of their shades from the range, I think they are a wonderful lipstick. 

Next up is a blush trio and it's the Blush By 3 in the shade Lace. Guipure is the perfect dupe for the cult classic Orgasm by Nars but much more affordable. Crochet and Chantilly are on the matte side, and I like that they added two options (matte and shimmer) for whatever you're in the mood for. The formula is so soft with high colour pay off so be sure to use a light hand when applying. I always take this with me travelling because you have 3 different blush shades in 1 and a mirror so it's very handy. I've read nothing but extremely positive reviews for this particular blush so it's very popular and loved by many. If you're on the hunt for a new blush, definitely a take look at the Blush By 3 range.

The lucky last product I have to share with you is the Corrector and Concealer Palette. This is also another one I love to take travelling with me because it has all I need. A corrector for neutralising any discolouration under the eyes while it also brightens the area, concealer to cover any imperfections you may have and a powder to set all of that concealer in place. The two concealers are really creamy in texture which is great because it doesn't latch onto dry areas, and the powder contains an SPF of 15 to protect your skin from UV rays. It lasts relatively well on me considering I have an oily skin type, and some creamy products tend to separate or fade over time. It's a great product to have in your handbag or travel bag, especially if you're someone who has dark under eyes or blemishes that need camouflaging.
