Last week I attended the Sleek Distorted Dreams party at Tape, London. It was a great evening with cocktails and oh-so tasty canapés and most of all it gave me the chance to catch up with some wonderful people and really get back into my blogging game after a tiny set-back with my health last year.
The night was to celebrate two new products in time for Summer, new additions to their Matte Me lip creams and a truly stunning highlighter palette. Both of which are packed with reflective and holographic pigments to illuminate your cheeks, around the eyes and your lips. The girls from Britain's Next Top model were there looking leggy and stunning and their cheekbones were shimmering down to the new highlighting palette that was actually used in that night's episode - Sleek are taking over guys!
There are many products Sleek do well, but the one that stands out to me is their highlighters, they're so pigmented, really long lasting and not at all glittery. I'm after a bold glow, I don't want to look like something my son created at nursery! Sleek help me achieve that with no problem and you don't have to spend a fortune either.
The New Distorted Dreams highlighting palette does not disappoint, firstly it's only £10.99 and you get 5 shades to play with. As always it's in a really sturdy case with a nice large mirror. The casing itself has a mirror-like surface which in my case has got really smudged but let's be honest, once you’ve taken a picture for instagram does packaging really need to stay pristine!?
The palette contains three cream highlighters, a pink shell, a silver with a subtle green to it (it sounds scary but it’s fab!) and the small square in the middle contains a blue tone for if you’re feeling brave - it looks great on a darker skin tone. They’re definitely fun to play with and will be incredible for festival season. I’m just picturing them at pool parties (not that I ever go to them but hey, a girl can dream!)
If cream highlighters aren't your thing there's also two powder highlighters, a golden bronze and a pink with purple/blue tones which is just stunning.
On to the lips. We all love the original matte Me lip creams, (that lilac shade is beautiful! If you haven’t seen it take a look, it's perfect for spring) they last such a long time and there's such a great shade selection too.
Sleek have added three shades that really give you the chance to embrace the metallic trend and add something special to a bold lip.
There are three metallics, Rusted Rose, a deep frosted rose, Volcanic which has more of a nude tone with a touch of purple; Think Velvet Teddy with a kick! And Roman Copper- a golden/amber shade which looks great lightly swept over a nude lip.
These shades are beautiful and are going to be amazing right through to Autumn. these gold tones are already making me think of crispy leaves and it's barely even Summer yet. If metallics are your thing I really recommend you try them out, for just
£4.99 you can't really say no! These are available at the end of the month so just in time for payday!
