Advent Calendar – Day Nine

Sleek better

Sleek Make-Up Romance Collection Gift Set

In recent years, Sleek have become the rising star of budget make-up. Their incredible blushes and eye shadows offer an unrivaled palette of highly pigmented tones in every hue imaginable. They are a brilliant gateway to experimenting with colour, affordable for teens and desirable to the courageous novice and practiced professional alike.


If you know someone who loves experimenting with eye make-up, then something from Sleek could be the perfect present. The Vintage Romance gift set (that v-word again…) is a really inspiring collection that showcases their stunning eye shadow palette of purples and very wearable metallics in a mixture of matte and shimmery shades, Antique Blush- an unusual dusky rose with silver sparkle, two lipsticks in a fuscia and deep red, and make-up bag to put it all in. I think this is a really gorgeous set that fully delivers on quality and looks really chic for the price.


Helpfully, Sleek use no tacky risqué names to make it inappropriate as a gift for a teenager or to offend a decorous auntie; I prefer to do my blushing with a brush.
