Hey lovelies. Hope everyone is enjoying the New Year so far, if you haven't been blown away! What on earth has taken me so long to get on the Sleek palette bandwagon?! Seriously Belle. Well thanks to Santa I received the Sleek Face Form Contouring Kit and the Concealer and Correct Kit, so watch out for that review too. The Sleek 'Face Form' Contouring Kit is a sister product to the infamous Sleek Contour Kit I believe. How is this new palette better than the older one? Well, it has three powders instead of the two in the last palette. With Face Form you get one shimmery highlighting shade, one matte contouring shade and one gorgeous, shimmery bronzer/blush.
There are four kit shades available – Fair, Light, Medium and Dark. The two palettes for lighter skin tones include Sleeks infamous Rose Gold blush whilst the Medium and Dark palettes include a shimmery bronzer. I received the medium, as I do have quite warmish skin tone, and I don't like pink blushes on me at all. But surprisingly medium works perfect on my skin tone.
The textures are surprising for a high street kit; buttery, powder and really easy to blend. The contour shade does look really dark, but it blends out beautifully so you don't have to worry about obvious lines. The highlighter is really pretty and doesn't show up as obvious shimmer on your face, so you don't look like you have never used makeup before and rummaged in your mum's makeup draw!
The contouring powder is a warm medium brown with chocolate tones and a matte finish which is pretty hard to come by in the bronzing/ contouring world I have found. On to the highlighter which is a creamy beige powder with a warm pearl shimmer. The best thing about this powder is that although it is highly pigmented it needs to be built up. One sweep leaves a hint of shimmer but a couple more leaves a more natural summer glow. I find it best for using across the top of the cheek bone and under the arch of the brow.
I am in love with the Sleek Face Form Contouring Kit, and have used it every day without fail. I think contouring and highlighting is fast becoming one of my staple makeup habits. Why did I not try this before?! Bad makeup addict!
