Sleek Make-Up Glory Palette - Review

Wednesday, June 20, 2012



Slotting in nicely with today's Olympic beauty theme is Sleek Make-Up's newest three piece collection 
which has been dubbed the "The Limited Edition 2012 Collection", this features an eyeshadow palette,
a blush and a pout polish all of which are limited edition and launch on the 4th of July.

Each piece in the collection is individually named and the palette has received the title "Glory".
Housed inside a matte black palette is twelve well pigmented shades that range from bright and bold
to soft and subtle shade so hopefully there is something for everyone.
The formula of the shades are matte and shimmer based so again there is a variety of options.

All twelve eyeshadows have a shade name and this time around Sleek Make-Up honours 
London's Underground system with each shade having a name associated to the system.
Continuing with themes it seems the top row taps into the Olympic medal theme with bronze, golds
and silvers however the bottom row is bright and more akin with the various flags flying at the games.

Surprisingly I do not have any issues at all with the pigmentation or formula of any of the twelve shades,
they all have a high level of colour pay off and that includes the matte shades which is pretty rare.
I didn't particularly find any of the shades present to be chalky but I should point out that the fall out is pretty substantial especially with the matte shades.
On average I find Sleek Make-Up eyeshadows to wear for around four hours without a primer
but with a primer it is closer to the eight hour mark.

The Glory palette and the rest of the collection launches on the 4th of July and will be available in 
selected Superdrug stores and via the Sleek Make-Up web store - link
The Glory palette will retail for £7.99.

  15. Is it bad that I am amused by the fact the 'British' palette is released on American Independence day?!

    Looks like a nice palette though, probably won't get it as I'm definitely more of a neutrals girl x
