Sleek Make-Up will launch two new palettes and matte lip glosses (yes I agree that is an oxymoron if ever I heard it) tomorrow in collaboration with the London fashion house PPQ.
"The best things come in two's and this partnership is no exception!
Tow fashion and beauty brands Sleek Make-Up and London fashion house PPQ are coming together
once again, for a partnership of the bold and brave, married by a shared love of fashion forward
innovation, stand out colour and down right drama.
The result is Shangri-La, a collection that sings a colourful, soulful time."
So yes two palettes and two matte glosses, the Supreme palette is the deeper toned palette of the
two which features mostly matte eyeshadows with one shimmer/highlight shade in tones
of blue and khaki and available separately is a light matte pink lip cream which
has been created to give a 60's vibe to the lips.
The Respect palette is constructed of bright orange and coral tones and again is mostly matte in formula, the lip gloss for this palette is a bright true red.
All of the shades in both palettes have been named in the honour of Motown with shade names such a
as James Brown and Gladys White.
I was sent the Supreme Palette and Soul Lip Gloss...
The Supreme palette is a complete beauty with lots of beautiful blues and green shades
with a few browns and yellow tones put in the mix too.
It is the perfect Autumn/Winter palette as you have a great selection of warm ochre shades
and browns for the Autumn and lots of ice cold blues and a shimmery white highlight shade
which would look wonderful in the winter months.
Eleven out of the twelve shades are matte and I must say that I feel Sleek Make-Up have upped
their game with the matte formula as it is much more creamier than palettes past
and certainly packs a punch in pigmentation stakes without being chalky.
If you favour matte eyeshadow this and the other palette are worth investing in.
Now I love matte lips but can not quite understand why Sleek Make-Up have labelled
their Truly Mattely Deeply lip products a gloss as they are as matte as matte can be
and feature no glossy element what so ever, the term cream would have been more fitting surely?
I was sent the shade Soul which is a light clean blue based pink which certainly does have a 60's
vibe, sadly it does look rather stark on my skin tone and isn't a shade I would wear
but the formulation is wonderful - full opaque coverage which is matte and is comfortable to wear.
I will be ordering the other shade option - Jazz, tomorrow as it a rather great lip product
particularly if like myself you enjoy matte lip products.
The Shangri-La Collection* launches tomorrow (26th September)
and the palettes retail at £7.99 each and the Truly Mattely Lip Products will be £4.99 each.
