Review: Sleek Eyeshadow Palettes (part one)

Part Two Part Three

SO, recently I have been shopping my stash and I found these Sleek palettes that I had completely forgot about. I decided to do a review on these palettes because I know that Sleek now ships to the United States. Personally I have never ordered through the Sleek website, so I don’t know how is their customer service. I ordered all of these palettes through Amazon and the seller I bought these from no longer carries these palettes through their store. Sleek eyeshadows palettes are still sold on Amazon.

On to the review:

The Ultra Mattes V2 (dark matte eyeshadows)

This palette has the best matte eyeshadows out of all the sleek palettes I own. The consistencies are smooth, but a little bit powdery. Grade: A

The Acid Palette (bright color palette)

This one is the hardest to work with. The really neon colors are sheer and need to be put over a tacky base ( Nyx Milk) to get them to match the colors in the pan. the colors are spectacular to look at, but will take some work to build up. Grade: C-

The Ultra Mattes V1 palette (pastel bright)

This palette is all bright colors, but unlike the acid palette these colors look good alone without a base. A good base would improve the opacity of the eyeshadows. Grade: C+
