I've recently been branching out with my make-up, and trying lots of new products, so I decided to make a big order on Sleek to try out some new bits!
I was initially going to just post about what I ordered, and not review until a later date, but I couldn't stop myself from trying it all out, so this is a joint haul and review!

Shades from left to right - Stiletto, Mystic & Amped

I don't know why I've never picked up any of the 'true colour' lipsticks up before, as I've seen them so many times in the drugstores, but anyway, I decided to pick up a few colours to try out. After a lengthy amount of time googling swatches, I settled on these three shades. They do come in a range of finishes, but I love a good 'matte' finish, so that's what I went for. All of the colours are so pigmented and creamy. If anybody wants any swatches, let me know!
I would say that 'Stiletto' is a good dupe for NARS Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in 'Dragon Girl', 'Mystic' is a good dupe for MAC 'Heroine' crossed with MAC 'Up the Amp', and 'Amped' is a good dupe for MAC 'Up the Amp' crossed with MAC 'Candy Yum Yum'. 

Sleek Contour Kit in the shade 'Light'

I've only been a fan of highlighters for around a year now, so I've finally gotten around to trying out some new ones! I had actually purchased this kit with the view to learn how to contour as I've not really used any bronzing products before, so I had to choose my shade wisely so I didn't cause any make-up malfunctions! My skin tone is by no means 'light', but I don't trust bronzers whatsoever, and my instincts were correct. I think if I'd have chosen 'medium' or 'dark', my cheeks would be in real trouble. Luckily, this is the perfect shade for me, and the highlight is spot on.

Sleek Molten Metal in the shade 'Steel & Ash'

Whilst scrolling through Sleeks Instagram page, I spotted a model wearing some gorgeous silver eyeshadow which was actually this super cheap little duo! I love highlighting the inner corners of my eyes, and this is the perfect palette to do it with. Like all Sleek products I've used, it's incredibly pigmented and glides on like a dream.

Shades from left to right - Noir, Bullion, Cobalt Blue & Pumpkin

If you've read one of my previous posts, (linked here), you'll already know I'm a huge fan of the Sleek 'Eau La La' liners. In that post, I was discussing them in regards to being a lip liner.. little did I know they were both a lip liner and an eye liner! Silly me. I suppose that explains the wide colour variety! Anyway, I picked up four more shades, this time going for the more 'eye liner' suitable shades. 'Noir' is your basic black liner, and 'Buillion' is a sparkly gold, so perfect for finer detail. However, I was doing my nightly scroll through the beauty section on Pinterest, and spotted this insaaaane eyeliner look using 'Cobalt Blue', and 'Pumpkin', so I'm dying to try that out myself! Like I said in my lip liner post, these liners are so creamy and pigmented.. I think I need the entire colour range!

I hope you've enjoyed yet another beauty post! They're fast becoming my favourite to do! I recently made a little Illamasqua sale purchase, so keep your eyes peeled for more!
