Sleek Makeup Cream Contour Palettes

I adore Sleek Makeup and remember the rush to grab hold of Suede and Rose Gold blushes when they launched a few years ago. Since then, I have been lucky enough to be present for some amazing launches and last week saw the introduction of three cream contouring palettes


Sleek Cream Contour Palettes

Contouring for me has been one of those things I just don't get. I have never really got what goes where and everyone seems to have their own interpretation, don't even get me started on Clown Contouring... is there a need? Anyway, these kits, which I was able to watch a live demonstation of being used and had a makeover using them, are designed to sculpt, define and enhance. Put bluntly, they work to create the illusion of refined features, higher cheekbones, a softer jawline or a slimmer nose. The cream formulas are velvety smooth which blend seamlessly onto the skin for a flawless, fade proof finish.

Available in three shades (light, medium & dark as shown below), the kit’s work with all skin tones and have two highlighting and four contouring ultra blendable shades. The palettes, are to keep in with the name, Sleek and the lid inside is a mirror. Unsurprisingly, I need the light shades for my skin tone, though I can also use the medium palette once I am more confident with contouring. What I love about these palettes is the easy to follow guide, especially for someone like me, who tried contouring once, looked like Ru-Paul and vowed never to do it again.

Now, I am slowly getting over my fear of contouring and am enjoying playing with each palette, who knows, in a few weeks time I might even be confident enough to show you a before and after shot, but until then, I have managed to perfect the sucking in of my cheeks without falling over in fits of giggles.

These palettes will be available in April from Boots and Superdrug as well as being online and will have a retail value of £10.99

  2. Ooh I love Sleek make-up! I used to have their old, old contouring palette that I think they discontinued and that was pretty good! I think I still look like RuPaul when I contour hahaha, but practice make perfect, right?!

  4. I was looking at these the other day. I like the idsacof contouring and these are a great price. I'm very pale though so the idea of contouring scares me.

  15. Yep, I'm so with you on this one. I've never bought a contouring kit, probably won't. I have always used concealers and different shaded foundations to get the look I like.

  16. I bought a contour kit and I have given up - I read the instructions again and again and I just can't get it to work for me. I think I need lessons

  17. I have got their powder contour kit, but would love to try these cream ones. I am yet to find a cream highlighter at like, I just use my concealer at the moment. KBxx

  21. I've heard some women at my work talking about this. They whisper in hushed tones about this magic, this voodoo. By contouring, you can change the shape of your face? Apparently so. Sounds like magic to me.....

  22. These look amazing sets. I have seen some incredible looks achieved by contouring.

  34. Oh these looks amazing! I need to get my hands on some. I typically just use powders on myself but when doing freelance I love using creams as they are a lot more effective and last longer. Brilliant review! Thanks for posting.
