  • True Colour Lipstick

These lipsticks are classified as "matte", but contains vitamin E, so they still glide on smoothly!! I was extremely happy about the pigmentation of these lipsticks because I have been on a hunt for a nice coral lipstick that is true to it's color, as well as a deep red for the Fall. :)

  • Curacao I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette
Literally, just looking at the palette before swatching, I knew that I was now #winning!! :)
The colors are sooooo bright and it's pattern gave me hope!! & I was right.

  •   Sleek Makeup Blush
Great Packaging!

^^Name of Each Blush^^

These blushes are so beautiful. I could not wait to open my package to swatch the heck out of these bad
boys! lol.

The intensity of the blush pigmentation is to die for. When purchasing without being able to physically see an item,  it can be a bit scary; only because you're not sure if the product will show up on skin, like it did on the computer screen. You will always have the doubt that it's not as PIGMENTED as it may look, when you can't swatch the product! Well with Sleep Makeup.. what you SEE is definitely what you GET!

  •  I-Divine Primer Palette

Anytime an eyeshadow is being used, a primer or base should be used to help with creasing, longevity, and enhancement of color.
Collecting different colored primers can be quite costly, if purchased individually, so when I saw this I-Divine Primer Palette, I knew it was a MUST-HAVE.
Amazed by the cost, I made sure to purchase it.

  • Face Contour Kit

I was ecstatic about this Contour Kit, because it came as a set includng the dual ended contouring brush! :) Not to mention that the brush came with a traveling case! 
The Contour Kit came in three different shades: Light, Medium, & Dark
I purchased: Medium

Special Thanks to Michelle, from BeautyAndTheBlog, for her amazing postings about Sleek Makeup; And to the determination and willingness to do months and months of research, I finally decided to place an order with Sleek Makeup! Well.. let alone the fact that it took months for my to figure out that the website offered US shipping, and I was overlooking it the entire time!
Shipping was AMAZING and FAST!! Packaging was superb! I was extremely IMPRESSED! :)

My Overall Thought: My experience with Sleek Makeup was phenomenal! I couldn't have been anymore satisfied! Fast shipping, Great packing, Great products, great service, & a great asset to the beauty community!!
