Sleek Make Up | Face Form Fair and Light Swatches




The official Sleek website ships internationally, with affordable shipping cost.  This was the fourth order I placed and the first that successfully came through.  The first 3 orders failed because of my visa card issue, but the disappointing thing is, there isn't auto or manual notice from the Customer Service telling me they were unsuccessful, the status of those 3 orders just showed 'Processing' and never proceeds.  Room for improvement!  Anyway, this came in smoothly and I am super happy to have some of these in my possession, finally~

iDivine Eyeshadow Palettes:  I already own two before this order, the Original, and the Olympic special one.  However, I have always wanted and lusting over the Storm palette.  Pixiwoo uses that sometimes, and my friend Sam sings praises about it constantly (link to her blog).  So I had to order it for myself.  I also got another warm palette in Sunrise, which houses very beautiful reds and earth tones.

Creme to Powder Tester Kit:  I needed more medium shades of base for making up my darker skin tone friends, or freelance work, so I went ahead and picked a few of these sample kits.  The texture of the Creme to Powder is nice, they are creamy and smooth but dry to a matte finish.  I didn't intend to use on myself, but I did try to match myself to their shades.  To my surprise, only the Barley shade in the Light kit works for me.  The other four shades in the Light are too dark.  If I were to buy it for myself, I think I have to get Fair/Light...


Blush by 3 in Lace:   I have the Flame (reds) and Pumpkin (brights), but they aren't the easiest to wear on my complexion.  I adore their texture so I picked up the lighter, more flattering palettes of them all, the Lace.  Inside, there are, apparently, three shades.  Crochet: A bright peach/orange shade with slight red undertones in a matte texture.  Guipure: A warm peach/pink with very tiny gold flecks in a shimmer texture. The gold flecks are tiny enough that they shimmer and make the face look glowy instead of looking like a discoball.  Chantilly: A very bright pink/red in a matte texture~

True Colour Lipsticks:  Sam made me buy this, as with many other things!  She has been making lipstick posts every Friday or so, and these are some of the one I find most attractive - hence I got them.  She wore Vamp (link to her bog) and Mulberry - can't find that post :S - and some other reds too.  But I figure I already own a crazy amount of reds hence the darker shades were bought~ ;)


Face Form Contouring and Blush Palette:  I very much love and regard Sleek Face Contour Kit in Light as one of my Holy Grail contour products, until I got my claws on the Face Form in Fair.  Contour Kit in Light is good, in the Summer when I am ever slightly more tanned than now, and it gives a more defined effect.  However, Face Form in Fair is even better because the effect is so subtle and natural and beautiful, moreover, it works for me all year round!  The bonus is Face Form in Fair comes with the much-raved about Blush in Rose Gold, which I have never had before.  It is a gorgeous bright coral pink with gold shimmer, pretty~

    1. Symptoms of failed order: The status kept at Processed forever. Even my past failed orders in 2012 still show processed.
      My order took a few weeks to come from UK to HK. Not too long as far as I can remember.
      Hope your order went through smoothly!
