Sleek Bronze Block

I was lucky enough to win this little Sleek Bronzing Block in @Makeup_Magpie's Twitter giveaway. 


I was actually only looking at it in Superdrug the day before I entered and I thought how lovely it looked. I've only ever tried Sleek's 'Storm' eyeshadow palette before and I was keen to give another product a try. Needless to say I was excited when I found out I'd won!
For a brand that is so affordable I love how sturdy their packaging is, it's something that companies often skimp on to save money but Sleek make sure their products, as well as the packing is really good quality. The small 'sleek' black block with a mirror inside gives you everything you need...well, except a brush but I always like to use my own anyway!

I have the block in light but there is also a dark version available. There's 4 squares of colour, two darker shades to enhance a tan with two lighter shades to illuminate and brighten.
 It gives you the option of swirling them all together to add a bit of colour to the cheeks or you can focus on one colour to simply bronze, contour or use as a blush. I love a good versatile product and this one is nice and compact, it's the perfect size to carry around with you.

I really love the pink, it has a touch of shimmer in it. It's just perfect on the cheeks blended up to highlight, it gives a really refreshed glow to the skin.


These retail at £7.49 and I'm so pleased I got to give this a try! I'm now keen to try out more from Sleek. Any recommendations? 

 Thank you for the giveaway Gemma! Keep a look out for more of her giveaways, she always has great prizes up for grabs.
