UK Cosmetics – Sleek Makeup! Haul


Today I’m bringing to you some lovely presents I got from my boyfriend after his visit to England. I was really thrilled as Sleek Cosmetics and Makeup Academy (MUA) are really hard to come by! * I love Kinder Surprises! If you haven’t had one before they are chocolate eggs that half white chocolate/ half milk  chocolate and inside there’s a toy. It brings me back to the 8th grade when Amanda use to bring them to lunch. I also got a tin filled with nice smelling tea, Jack Willis Journal and a London guard shaped mug. I’m quite a lucky girl 🙂

* You can purchase Sleek cosmetics from their website, however it’s pretty steep shipping ><

Brief Overview of Sleek Palettes
I really like Sleek palettes as they offer both neutral and bright eyeshadow shades. They come in a sturdy black packaging and are very “sleek” in appearance.  It comes with a large mirror, 2 ended sponge applicator, easy to open, and very rich colors. Plus they are only $10 US dollars or 6 pounds per palette so they are a steal!

Pros:
– Affordable!
– Large Variety of Colors
– Pigmented
– Smooth Application
– Travel Friendly / Portable
* Comes with a large mirror & applicator

Cons
–  Can be hard to locate outside of the UK
– Some colors can be more powdery, mattes

Would I repurchase – Yes! Highly recommended. I’ve got my eye out for the Sleek Palette in Me, Myself and My Eye.
