Sleek Makeup – Candy Collection


First of all this is so not me.. the whole rainbow eyes thing is so far from my comfort zone it’s not funny but I will play around this collection over the next week or so and see if I can’t come up with a couple of wearable looks to share with you. I hate to be defeated by a palette and like to think I can make just about anything work with a little tweaking and some neutral blending shades but this is going to be tough. Pink is a hard colour to pull off on the eyes for the best of us and blue/greens in this tone don’t do much for my brown eyes so we’ll just have to see. None the less I had to share some swatched as they are just beautiful.. I’m just not sure how much I would use them..


As always there’s a good mix of textures, matte, shimmer, and even cream in the blush palette. This is actually my first Sleek blush so I’m very eager to give it a go when I get ready for work tomorrow. Unlike the last Sleek Makeup palette I tried there seem to be no duds in the Candy Collection, every shadow has decent colour pay off with little effort so with a primer they can only be better.. very impressed. I will update soon, hopefully with a video but worst case a few snapshots of my FOTD. The Sunday Girl has some fantastic swatches (far superior to mine) and lists all of the shades in her blog post if you’d care to take a look – link

The Candy Collection will be available from 5th June

    Love the look of the blush palette, but I agree that the eyeshadows look a little too vibrant!

    I just posted a blog about the Sleek face form contour on my site, I’d love it if you took a look!

    Love the blush palette, it is gorgeous! Not so sure about the eye palette, too much colour for me.

    I’m a bit scared of colour, so I doubt I’d get much use from these either – it’s a shame though, they look so pretty!

    Dang why did I have to place an order with Sleek today before these came out!
    I love Sleek’s blushes & those look like nice colours 🙂
    You inspired me to make a beauty blog Khila, It would be awesome if you could check it out! I’m a makeup artist from Australia 🙂

    The blush palette looks gorgeous! I understand what you mean about the bright palette, it will be a struggle to blend but I’m sure you’ll be able to do some amazing looks with it once you “get to know” the palette 🙂

    A good wide range of colours, but like you I am not the biggest fan of rainbow eyes! I’ll be keeping an eye out for a post on how to wear them!

    That blush palette looks amazing! I’m the same with the eyes though, neutrals all the way. I’m curious to see what look you come up with. Thanks for sharing!

    I love how one of the shadows is called ‘flump’. I think it’s the top right purple shadow.

    But everytime I think of it I want to go and eat flumps.
