Sleek Face Form Palette in Light 373

10 November 2012


As much as it pains me (and my bank balance) to say, I'm really not a high street girl. I might sound like a bit of a make up snob, but I just love my Chanel, YSL and Laura Mercier. However, a couple of weeks ago when I wandered in to Superdrug in Meadowhall in search of the Rimmel Scandaleyes nude liner (I know, I'm contradicting myself here!) and spotted Sleek and MUA stalls, I broke the habit of a life time and went wild. And guess what...It turns out I'm a high street girl after all.

Originally I was after the Sleek contour kit, but ended up going for this instead. It looks to have the same bronzer and highlighter as the contour kit, but with this gorgeous rose gold blusher too (which I believe is a bit of a dupe for Nars Orgasm). Initially I thought that I'd probably not dislike this kit, but then add it to the pile of 'cheek' products I rarely reach for, but I've gone for this pretty much every day since purchasing. I bought this for the bronzer (it's what I always wanted Nars Laguna to be), but since then I've actually been making use of the blusher/highlighter combo. At the airport a month or two ago I picked up a MAC highlighting powder, and it's nice enough, but it aint got a thing on this!

I never go for pinky blushers, but this one is so pretty that I'm thinking I might have to pick up a few more. The shimmer is so subtle it doesn't bother me - but maybe it helps that I prefer a cream blusher anyway. And that highlighter...well, it's just a dream on my NC20(ish) skin. Really, for £10 for a bronzer, blush and highlighter I just can't complain.

So now that I'm a Sleek girl, what other products would you recommend? It's my birthday on Monday and I'm anticipating a Boots voucher or two...

  7. How does the MUA glitter nail thing stay on? I've been looking out for it for a while, and i'm not sure whether it has come to my local superdrug yet but i'm thinking of getting it when it does come! I'm scared that it won't stay on that well though...
