pre-release review: sleek caribbean collection

So moving quite swiftly on from yesterdays post that applied to only the moneybags of you all, today I will be reviewing another great collection by Sleek. And since we have been having weather identical to the Caribbean lately it's rather apt. I was actually lucky enough to go to the Caribbean a year or so ago and went to quite a few different islands and can definitely say Sleek have captured the colours and feel of the Caribbean perfectly.

Aruba Blush - £4.29

Yeah it really is a bright orange tangerine coloured blush. Don't let that put you off though because as I said a few posts ago you can blend the blush out to look completely subtle. Worth investing in if you are bored of the same old pink blush, as long as you use a light hand!

Bonaire Pout Polish - £4.29

I hadn't tried a pout polish by Sleek before but had heard lots of good things about them and it definitely didn't disappoint. The packaging is perfect and ahemm.. 'Sleek'.. perfect to pop in your bag for the beach. The colour is fairly sheer but has a subtle orange tint while on the lips, perfect with a tan. It has the moisturising feel of a lip balm (it's enriched with Avocado and Sweet Almond Oil) yet the sheen of a gloss.

Curaçao I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette - £6.49

Another fab eyeshadow palette by Sleek, after all that is what they are mainly famed for. If you like bright eyeshadows you most definitely love this palette. I love the burnt orange with gold shimmer, the pearly white colour and the olive green with gold glitter best. And to be honest the palette would be worth purchasing even if you only like half the colours, you could pretty much afford two palettes for the same price as one Mac eyeshadow. That's almost 24 eyeshadows instead of the price for one!

The collection is available from the 6th of July for a limited time only from Superdrug stores or  www.sleekmakeup.com
