Fun fact, it is now March 2015 and I really don’t remember if I lived February. Many times I find myself typing 2014 in posts. Anyone else like me here? Or am I only one? Living in the past is OK if there is something that makes you blush with happy thoughts. Just like those colorful sleek makeup palettes. Looking at my sleek makeup collection makes me happy.

My Experience ?
Sometimes I feel like I’m getting into more bold colors these days since I have bored myself a lot with Neutrals. Sleek is the safest choice when if comes to palette & colors and they have a huge collection of bigger, better and affordable palettes than any other brands I know. Thanks to Luxola.com ME and my 3 lucky Beautyndbest.com readers are proud owner of some of these.
One of the reason I was staying away from this for so long is because I’m a anti-glitter person and I thought the palette won’t match my taste. But what I was thinking and I experienced was completely divergent…
Let’s see why ;-)
About Shade : I got Sleek Face Form Contouring & Blush Palette in Light which has a pretty blush, matte bronzer and a highlighter. The shade will suit Light to Medium skin as well as most of the Asian and Indian skintones. If you are very Pale go for Face Form in Fair and if you are on Darker Warm side go for Medium / Dark Face Form.
Packaging : Sleek Face Form is perfect for travel purpose since you get 3 products in 1 compact palette, and it comes with a big mirror inside which I use for touch-ups.
Blush : The Blush shade is described as Rose Gold shade, which is famous dupe for Nars Orgasm. On skin it looks like peachy pink shade that has gold shimmery sheen to it and looks surprisingly natural on the skin, despite loaded with gold shimmer. I just put one swipe of it when I’m in super hurry and I get a perfect healthy glow.
Bronzer : The bronzer comes in sand brown shade that can be perfect contour color for Light to Medium skintones. It has buttery texture that is so easy to apply and blend, and it almost looks like a real skin if blended well. I often find matte powders to be chalky and dry, but not this one! I suggest to use proper contour brush with which you can place it perfectly in hollows of your cheekbones.
Highlighter : I dust the highlighter lightly on apples of my cheeks for a highlighted contour that creates a soft, yet defined cheekbone. The highlighter has the most lovely texture in all three. It looks a little bit pink in the pan, but it looks neutral like a healthy sheen on skin. It looks natural both in daylight as well as in artifical lighting.
Texture : If you are familiar with Sleek texture you will know how smooth the texture it is making it easy to work with. Such soft texture is crucial so that the contour products blend easily into skin.
Pigmentation : Inexpensive palettes always worry me because I expect least from them. Specially in the pigment department but I was happy to find out that this Face Form by Sleek has pigment rich formula. Not just the blush but also the matte bronzer is perfectly pigmented. A tough competition for high end contour palettes
Staying Power : Lasting powder of all the three product is great. The bronzer doesn’t oxidize nor does the blush turn my oily skin into a greasy mess. The blush fades away evenly leaving behind a light glow on skin. The bronzer and highlighter stays on my skin for 7 hours plus.
Overall : I cannot wait to use this come the hot Summer months. I can think of so many looks with this palette… Sleek Face Form Contour & Blush Palette is easy to apply, beautifully pigmented, available in pretty shades and has long wearing formula- and everything you ever wanted from a contour Kit !
