Review on Sleek's Cheek PalettesTuesday, August 02, 2016
I love how girls now of all ages are so into contouring and highlighting! I remember how women were so scared of the word contouring because of how old they might look. Now, definition is a crucial part of any makeup look whether it be for day or night makeup!
I’ve heard a lot of good things about Sleek over the years, especially their blushes and lip products, but it was really hard to get my hands on before when I was still actively doing makeup. But now that Sleek is finally here, I can get my hands on their products every time I catch wind of what product is really good to try right now!
Contouring & Blush Palette

This palette is highly pigmented and not at all chalky. I hate it when blushes are highly pigmented but are extremely chalky that you always end up so much on your face that it would be near impossible to correct it. Remember my experience with Bobbi Brown's Blush in Berry? It was a gorgeous shade but I always have to use that with extreme caution.
I love LOVE a good highlighter, and my current fave? The highlighter included in Happy Skin's Feeling Sculptacular Face Contour Kit. I am always on the look out for a good highlighter and ever since I opened my Sleek Highlighting Palette in Precious Metals, I’ve been loving it more and more lately.

And don't you just love the metallic, shiny case it comes in?
Blush by 3 Palette
Sleek MakeUP added two new palettes to their range of Blush by 3 range in 2014, so we welcome the latest addition: Pink Lemonade. The Sleek Blush by 3 Blush Palettes contain 3 full size Sleek blushes. I'm glad I was able to receive Pink Lemonade because it contains shades I don’t already own.

For my evening makeup look, I did a soft smokey eye and used the contouring powder from the Face Form palette. I shaded my temples and my hair line, I also contoured my cheek bones and also shaded my nose line for definition. I used the same contour powder to define the bridge of my nose the I blended toward the crease of my eyes. I also used the highlighting powder to highlight my forehead.
Next, I used Renaissance Gold from the Precious Metals Highlighting Palette to highlight my nose line, brow bones, cheek bones, and my chin. I also dabbed some Platinum shade on the center of my lips to add more definition.
Last, I used Macaroon Cream Blush from the Blush by 3 in Pink Lemonade Palette as a base for my blush -I used my finger to apply it and it didn't disturb the makeup I had underneath! And then, I topped that off with both Pink Mint and Icing Sugar by blending them together to create a nice warm/cool tone.
ON MY FACE: Bobbi Brown Skin Foundation Cushion Compact SPF 50+++, Canmake Marshmallow Finish Powder, Eye of Horus Ultimate Brow Define in Medium Brown, Features & Shades (formerly Fanny Serrano) Single Eyeshadow in Mocha Java, The Body Shop Smoky 2 in 1 Gel Liner Eyes and Brows in brown, Maybelline Rebel Bouquet Lipstick in Reb03
I would definitely try out their other palettes because they're really convenient to bring in my professional makeup artist kit. I'm really glad that big companies like Sleek are now in Manila and it's easier to get our hands on them specially us Makeup Artists!
