Sleek MakeUp Au Naturel palette: Taupe & Mineral Earth

I bought the Sleek MakeUp Au Naturel i-Divine palette a few weeks ago, but it’s been sitting unloved and untouched since it arrived. You know I love to play with color, and even though I knew the quality of the palette was sure to be great, the colors were just uninspiring to me. I finally decided to break it out and now I know that this little baby will be getting all kinds of love and attention from me!

As always with Sleek eye palettes, the pigmentation of the shadows is phenomenal, along with the blendability and smoothness of the product. While the colors appear slightly boring, they transform into gorgeous, sophisticated colors once applied. Everyone’s “holy grail” nude palette, Urban Decay NAKED palette, is not a favorite of mine – those shadows are beautiful colors, but they fade and crease on me like crazy. Sleek’s new nude palette has all the pretty colors with none of the fading or creasing. And while NAKED retails for about $48,  Sleek’s Au Naturel runs for about $10.50. Of course, the accessibility of U.K.-based Sleek leaves something to be desired as it’s not available to purchase in North America unless you either pay for international shipping, or wait patiently for one of their highly coveted free shipping codes. I strongly recommend that if you’re interested in buying some Sleek, to “like” them on Facebook and wait for a free shipping code to pop up once in a while.

I'm finally figuring out this makeup thing in my 30's. It's so much fun to collect and play with new colors and styles. I'm not a makeup artist, and far from it. I welcome any comments and tips you have!
