Sleek | Candy Collection


Hello Beauties...
A couple of weeks ago I was able to get my hands on the Sleek, Candy Collection, admittedly it took me a couple of weeks to be able to buy the whole set, but I did, I know its taken me ages to get this post up I have been slacking of the beauty posts (Naughty me) but here it is! (smiles) The reason I am most excited about having this collection is (other then the fact it looks amazing) that I have never had the whole collection of anything, sad I know.
Plus I love anything to do with sweets so this collection just SCREAMED my name!



There are only 3 things in the collection, none of them are that expensive, you're looking at £10 being the most expensive item, which I think is great! So this makes the perfect collection to buy if like my you don't have mass amount of money to spend buying collections of things.

All the products are based around the colours of sweets, hence the name, I love this idea and think it is perfect for Spring/Summer when everyone (or most) is bringing out their bright colours and daring make-up looks.

So let get into what's in the collection.

"This tempting palette of sorbet hues and creamy sweeties awakens eyes and re-charges your look for the summer."
Could not have said it better myself. 
The main thing that drew me into this palette was the bright and boldness of the colours! most of my make-up collection consists of nude and neutral shades (example the naked palettes) But this palette is just on a whole other level of the colour spectrum! 

The colours look absolutely stunning, however don't be too alarmed, although the colours are amazingly pigmented, as in they are true to pan, they also appear on the skin a little opaque. So when you apply then to your eyes your not left with a block of colour, you can chose to have a sheer application or build up to a denser colour as they are easy to blend and very build-able, to help you create the perfect look without looking like a circus clown. 

I love the names of the colours that they have chosen, it really them look delicious almost like you could eat them! (please don't try to haha)
I love this palette and the colours work amazingly together! I introduced my mum to this palette and she loves it, she bought one for herself and uses it almost everyday. The colours do not crease even with out an eye shadow primer, both me and my mum can vouch for that, she doesn't own a primer and said how these colours lasted her all day without creasing or fading. Pretty impressive hey?!


There truly isn't a camera in the world that would do this blush palette justice! They are quite honestly the yummiest blush's I have ever seen. As the name would suggest you get 3 gorgeous colours in this palette, a blue based vibrant pink with a slight shimmery pearl finish, a pinky\lilac matte colour and a fuchia creamy pink.

Cupcake-Cream
Dolly mix-Matte
Candy floss-Pearlised
WARNING these blushes are as pigmented as they look so a little goes a long way, they are however build-able so always be careful with applying them. Remember its easier to build colour then take it away. As you can see in the picture they are pretty easy to blend and don't look too scary on the cheeks.


Now isn't this just the yummiest colour you have seen, its the perfect candy-floss\bubble gum pink.
This has got to be my favourite out of the whole collection it is amazing! It does contain sweet almond oil, for anyone who is allergic to nuts, so I do have to be careful with it around Oli (hes a major nut allergy sufferer for those that don't know)
It has an amzing smell, I can't quite put my finger on what it smells like but my mum said sweet almonds (makes sense) I'm just addicted to the smell of it! 

I like to be different and use my Real Techniques Accent brush to apply this as I feel this brush picks up the product nicely and applies it to the lips perfectly! (try it and let me know what you think) 

"This liquid lip stain packs a punch in terms of pigment, layering lips in a gentle baby pink shade that requires just one tiny bead of colour to coat lips with pastel prettiness."

They definitely weren't exaggerating when they made this statement! The colour pay off of this product is to die for! The picture of my lips doesn't do it justice but it was the best picture I could get.

You can get these at any superdrug that stocks Sleek, I got half of mine online and the blush set from Bury St Edmunds superdrug.
This collection is Limited Edition so be sure to go get yours while you still can!

Well its save to say these products are just amazing, I love everything about all of them!

  5. These look so pretty and adorable! I stick to pink/pastel on my nails though, I don't really suit pink blushes/lipsticks... I bet these look so good next to your dark hair!
