The innovative creators at Sleek Cosmetics know that makeup should be versatile enough to suit your lifestyle and chic enough to match your wardrobe so they recently released 2 fabulous new palettes! This collection features trendy shades that effortlessly transition from a day at the office to a night on the town, but you can’t have trendy new shadows without pouty pigments! The flattering new Lip Veils instantly boost your entire look and the vibrant hues keep you fashionable all season long.
The daytime palette fitting named - A New Day consists of 12 shades including nudes, gold, silver, brown, cream, peach, champagne and taupe. Six of the shadows are shimmers and 6 are matte for the perfect balance of texture and basic hues to enhance the lids, add definition and highlight.
These chic shadows are simple yet pretty and suitable for all complexions. I love that there are so many great transition shades which expertly blend colors together for beautiful fluidity. The texture is velvety smooth and slightly creamy with a soft finish but you can layer over primer to make them pop! Although quite sheer, the shimmers provide a multidimensional finish and adding a dab around the tear ducts can make eyes appear wide and bright. Since the shadows are subtle they look fantastic with a wash of bright lipstick.
As the sun sets and you break out your little black dress and sexy heels, a bit more glamour might be in order. The second Palette (All Night Long) is inspired by popular cocktails and includes neutral hues mixed with eye-catching gold, shimmery bronze, radiant silver and a beautiful copper that I can’t wait to experiment with. The dark brown is perfect for deep crease contouring and the silky shimmers go perfectly with a sharp winged liner and bright red lips.
The pigmentation of the deeper shades is better than the sheer silvery tones but they can all be enhanced by layering. If you are on the hunt for an affordable palette with a great mix of very wearable, universally flattering neutrals and shimmers, these are a great option. They retail for just $11.99 ea.
To balance soft shadows, the sassy new Lip Veils are super vibrant! There are 6 brand new shades inspired by red carpet premieres, high fashion and celebrity photo shoots so you can pucker up and unleash your inner diva.
The luxuriously creamy, long-lasting formula glides on smoothly to deliver a dose of high intensity, vibrant pigmentation that applies full-coverage, lush and a little mousse-like. The velvety finish is semi-matte with a touch of shine and very solid color. Each lipstick is infused with nourishing shea butter and coconut oil to moisturize lips and prevent dryness plus the scent is light and pleasant.
Like most of the packaging, the tubes are very simple but I wish the names were printed on the bottom instead of on a sticker at the side. With the exception of Private Booth the rest of the colors are very bright which definitely evokes the essence of spring!
