Sleek Sunset Palette Review & Swatches

Posted by Lipglossiping On November - 5 - 2009

Introducing Sleek’s new Sunset Palette, I would link you to the website.. but I can’t find the palette on there… infact, the website seems to be thoroughly out of date.  And just how long does it take to build an online shop?

Anyway…

I had absolutely no intention of buying this.  I’m a cool toned kinda girl, especially at the moment… I’m all about the greys, mauves and silvers.

However, whilst buying the Graphite palette… I couldn’t resist a sneak peek inside this one too.  Oh my!

I will probably never wear the blue or the bright orange (I know, I know – they’re the bestest ones)… but they’re just not me!  The others are deliciously wearable metallic shades that will be put into use immediately!

Absolute stand out shades for me are: Top 2nd from left (cranberry colour), bottom far left, bottom 2nd from left and bottom 3rd from right.  If you’re a neutrals girl the palette is easily worth the cost for those 4 shades alone.  Although the cranberry shade looks bright, (and it is..) it blends out smoothly making a gorgeous subtle crease colour.

I’m very happy with this palette, and delighted that it’s made it into the permanent collection – good job Sleek!

    This was sold out when I tried to buy it. I’m cool toned as well so I wasn’t 100% sure about the colours but since it’s permanant I’m sure I’ll end up buying it. Your pictures are fab!

  5. I wasn’t planning on getting this but since watching Panacea81’s Bollywood Barbie video, I’m thinking that reddish colour in the palettee would work well for recreating that look.

    Thanks for wonderful pics dear.

  14. @DizzyDaisy – You can’t get much paler than me and I’m giving them a go! Hope you reconsider, I’m just going to blend them out if they look too much. Enjoy the Graphite palette regardless!
