Cheekbones in a palette... Sleek Contour Palette Review


Lately I have been trying to master the art of contouring
 (creating cheekbones where they don't exist...well they do! just in hiding!)

I have found the perfect product to help me do that ...Sleek's Contouring & blush palette.

This is in the shade light.

It's a 3 in 1 palette that contains Bronzer, Blush and Highlight.







Easy to carry around for touchups as the name suggests ...sleek packaging and thankfully has a mirror in the lid.



The powders are highly pigmented and a little really goes a long way.

The Bronzer is a matte finish with no glitter or sparkle to it (hard to find in a bronzer!).

The highlight is a lovely creamy peach colour with a fine sheen to it, lovely for highlighting the tops of your cheekbones. As well as the inner corner and brow bone.

Lastly the blush is a pink with a slight peachy sheen.

Swatches are shown below:

The brushes I use to apply it are the 'Real Techniques'
face brushes: blush brush, contour and the duo fiber contour brush for a softer wash of colour as it dispenses less product onto cheek, that can then be built upon.

Overall, i like this Sleek palette, its great value for money considering how pigmented the powders are and the fact you get 3 of them!
I would definitely recommend and in fact have...... to my lovely sister.

Available to buy at Sleek counters in Superdrug and now Boots!.

Take time for you. Take care and look after yourself.
Thanks for popping by luv acesparklestar xoxo
