Review, Swatchfest, and Tutorial: Sleek Storm Palette

Ever since I dove into the makeup world and began to hear about brands available in other countries, I have lusted after anything by Sleek. I was given the opportunity to try some out first-hand after a trip to London sent me home a little more makeup laden than when I left. No complains here. One of the treasures I picked up (you can see the others here) was the Sleek Storm Palette.

Unlike most, if not all, drugstore brands in the US, Sleek palettes include 12 colors with a nice mix of mattes and shimmers.

Top Row
Although they don't have names, the color descriptions, left to right are: shimmery deep gold, shimmery champagne, matte camel, shimmery light gold, shimmery warm pink, shimmery maroon.

Bottom Row
Again, from left to right: shimmery warm chocolate brown, shimmery gunmetal grey, shimmery emerald green (the photo doesn't do it justice), shimmery navy blue, matte medium brown, matte black.

These shadows are ultra pigmented and super creamy. While the matte shades aren't the smoothest I've encountered, in all of the testing I've done (you'll see one experiment below), their texture has never proven to be a problem. While some of the shimmery shadows are so smooth that they are prone to fallout, they don't do so any more than Wet N' Wild shadows might - just to give you a US comparison.

This is an amazing palette and, lucky for most, you don't have to go to London to get one! Sleek ships internationally and you can see this palette ($10), and so much more, on the website.

Now for the look:
