The Sleek Nude Collection...

Sleek is a brand which I literally knew nothing about until I started blogging this year, but their lovely collections and stunning lip and cheek colours don't fail to catch my eyes whenever I'm in Superdrug.



So when they launched this Nude Collection, I quickly snapped it up for its wearable shades and natural look.




I love the iDivine. It's the only one I've picked up so far and I'll definitely be picking up more in the near future. All of the colours are well pigmented (even the light shades, as many people have said they are not) and the colours are so wearable day or night.



My favourite colour has to be Taupe, it's just so easy to throw on and go leaving a lovely shimmery colour to the eyes. Conker and Mineral Earth are also beautiful for the crease and outer v to create a smokey eye. Nougat is the perfect highlight colour too. I've been using this palette alongside the UD Naked one and between the two I have enough neutral and dark colours to create an array of different looks.




By far the best thing about this collection is the Blush in Suede. It's a peachy-brown colour that gives a natural glow to the cheeks. It is matte which means it can also be used to lightly contour. I've worn this almost everyday since buying it, and it's the perfect colour to pair with bright eye looks to avoid clashing.




I am most underwhelmed with the Pout Polish in Bare Minimum. It's nothing special, but it is a great nourishing everyday gloss. I keep mine in my handbag and use it when I need a glossy boost or to put over bright lipsticks to give them an oomph. I think because I have two other bright Pout Polishes, I expected something a bit different, maybe a hint of shimmer, but it does exactly what it says on the tin, and gives you the bare minimum.


What do you think? What's your favourite iDivine?


Much Love,
Lauran
