A few weeks ago Sleek announced a new collection which is candy inspired! So like a lot of other people i rushed online and bought it as soon as i could as it's limited edition and i don't want to take the chance! They looked too good to miss out on anyway! I love themed collections, the products always tie in together so well and look fantastic.
We all know that Sleek are the drugstore/high street kings of blushes. But i hadn't tried their eyeshadow palettes yet, so i was anxious to see if they'd live up to my expectations! The candy collection has three products in it: Blush by 3 in Sweet Cheeks, i-Divine iCandy Eyeshadow palette and a Pout paint in LOL-LIP-POP (which seems to have gone missing from my lip drawer!).
The Blush by 3 is absolutely gorgeous to look at. In the palette you have one cream blush (Candy Floss), a matte lilac (Dollymix) and a bright shimmery candy pink (Cupcake)! All 3 are very pigmented. Candy Floss feels so soft and smooth and is so easy to apply. Dolly Mix is my favourite out of this palette, as i have nothing else like it, it's super pretty on the skin and really flattering.
The i-Divine iCandy Palette has 12 eyeshadows with a mixture of matte, shimmer and pearl finishes. They all have sweet/candy inspired names and are so bright. I can't wait to start using this more as the weather is getting so nice. Love a pop of colour in the summer!
The 12 shadows are
Strawberry Sherbet - Bright Barbie Pink with very slight shimmer.
Bon Bon - Pink with lots of shimmer.
Parma Violet - Matte darker purple
Apple Sour - Metallic mid-tone bright green.
Pearl Drop - Shimmery Acid Green.
Flump - Matte Bright purple.
Liquorice - Matte Black.
Blue Fizzle - Metallic medium Blue.
Aniseed - Shimmery Pink/Red.
Bubblegum - Matte sky blue.
Mint Cream - Matte mid-tone bright green
Cream Soda - Metallic white
I love the mix between matte and shimmer eyeshadows, it's always good to have some of each. My favourites are probably Bubblegum, Flump and Parma Violet. The quality of these shadows is amazing, they're all so pigmented you don't need a primer to make them pop. They last a while but to make it about 8 hours, use a primer. My only problem with this palette would be that Liquorice, the matte black shade, isn't as pigmented as the other shades. The i-Divine iCandy Palette is £7.99.
They're both in the usual Sleek Black matte packaging. Both feel very sturdy and are easy enough to fit into a make up bag. They both have big mirrors inside, which is always great for make up on the go. I can't wait to try more Sleek products as I've loved this collection so much. Hopefully it will help me get out of my comfort zone of neutrals only!
