Sleek Palette - Bohemian

I have been collecting the Sleek palettes for a few months now, I don't have them all as I came to them quite late, but I have gotten all that I was interested in, with a total of six now.

Here is the latest one, the Bohemian palette, which I believe is the latest limited edition palette.


The Sleek palettes have become almost legendary on blogs and YouTube. They are so cheap but very pigmented and pretty good quality. How can you resist 12 colours for only £4.99 !?
They are very very soft in texture, they can damaged easily due to this, but so far all of mine have been fine, even survived a drop off the bed! The pigmentation on these is amazing, I usually use Urban Decay shadows and I adore them, they are high quality and pigmented but a bit pricey. Sleek shadows are pretty good too, rich deep colours and vibrant tones, you can't go wrong really, not at this price.

I wasn't sure if I wanted this one at first, some of the colours looked a bit scary and I wasn't sure I would use it very much. But I saw some swatches online and it looked far nicer than I thought. I was very drawn to the navy and green in this palette as well as the neutrals, so decided to go for it and get it while I still could.

This palette has a mix of matte and shimmery, though more mattes at nine out of the twelve. Makes a nice change to see more mattes in a Sleek palette. The colours go from neutral browns to rich blue and purple.

Can't say I'm a big fan of the new white palette though, I much preferred the black ones, just looked a bit classier somehow.....


Colours within the palette:

1. Antique Gold metallic shimmer
2. Rich Bronze metallic shimmer
3. Rich Burgundy matte
4. Bright Yellow matte
5. Buttermilk matte
6. Black matte
7. Peach matte
8. Deep red rust metallic
9. Mid green matte
10. Deep Navy matte
11. Rich purple matte
12. Dark Brown matte


Some lovely shades here, not as scary as it first appears. The matte ones are surprisingly pigmented, as much so as the metallics, which shocked me. I love the green and navy mattes, really nice useable shades. The metallic golds and bronzes are fab too, though a bit much for everyday LOL

I am very happy with this one. I am so pleased I finally bought it before it ran out, the colours are just stunning and I can't wait to start wearing it.

I will be swatching the other five Sleek Palettes that I have over the next few weeks. So you can look forward to swatches of the following palettes from Sleek: Storm, Original, Safari, Graphite and Sunset.

Wow! Thanx for the.... swatching? Do they call it that with makeup? I'm always so interested in people's different takes on different makeup. :)

FitterTwit: LOL I guess they do call it that, I do anyway ;)
I love reading cosmetic and nail polish reviews too, really can help when deciding if to buy something or not, also to add new things to the ever growing wishlist ;)
