What I say:

A long time I have been eyeing this palette, but for some reason never actually bought it. Last Friday was the day I just gave in and could not resist any longer. Find below some swatches of this lovely palette and my first impressions.

The mix of matte and frosty eyeshadows is quite common in Sleek’s palettes. As per usual, the matte shades are a bit more difficult to work with, but not unworkable. I found ‘Wrapped Up’ the hardest to show up in my swatches as it took me several swipes to get the colour to show up at all. Bow is such a neutral matte colour that it barely shows in my swatch above on the very left, but it is a great blending shade. My favourite colour probably is ‘Gateau’, such a beautiful pink with golden shimmer. Although ‘Glitz’ is a nice colour, for me it is the only colour that does not really fit the rest of the palette. I would have preferred another matte purple or similar instead.
