(Firstly, this is my 100th post! YAY!! I can't believe I only started this blog just this past November, it feels like I've been doing this a lot longer! I just want to take a moment to thank all of my readers for sticking with me. Writing this blog and being apart of the beauty community has been the greatest treat. I love you all <3)As a huge fan of the Pixowoo sisters, I've been dying to get my hands on some Sleek palettes for well over a year now as Sam & Nic are always using them. I couldn't believe a drugstore brand existed where such excellently pigmented shadows were available at such reasonable prices. The problem: Sleek Cosmetics is a UK brand that at the time wasn't available in the US :( Problem #2: When they finally did offer their products for sale internationally online shipping was a little steep for me to afford :( Well, after some successfully stalking of their site I caught them on a day where they were having 50% off their shipping so I took advantage of it and scored some swag. I'm going to introduce the products individually so this first post will feature Sleek's Me, Myself & Eye palette! So take the jump for the review and swatches!
What attracted me to this particular palette was the incredible range of colors. A red! Mint! Where else am I going to get those in 1 palette? Before swatching I was literally praying that they would turn up as pigmented as they looked. And what do you know, they were!

How cute are the names? Salt 'N' Peppermint? Lilac Allen? I'm a sucker for cute names on cosmetics. But most importantly, for the most part, the shades are very pigmented. The only shades that were a bit on the chalky side was Pink Beret and Supernova, but to be honest that is usually what I expect from the typical matte shades from anyone.
I'm going to withhold my official review on the shadow palettes for when I do part 2, which will be up soon with a sample eye look from both. I will say quickly though that I love this palette and can't wait to really sit down and play with it! Salt 'N' Peppermint is SCREAMING my name.
Till next time, love ya madly!
