I’m still pretty new to the Sleek craze…but I’m getting pretty hooked. I picked up these newer palettes off the Sleek website awhile back when they launched. Blush & eyeshadow combo palettes can be seriously hit or miss in my experience…& unfortunately usually a miss. Has this budget friendly brand beat the odds & created winners? Keep reading to check them out!
As per expected, Sleek has quite standard &….sleek packaging. Like the many Sleek blush palettes I reviewed here, these palettes have nice mirrors & closures. Unlike those palettes, however, these actually contain brushes. While I am normally against tools taking up space in my palettes I think they work here. They aren’t spectacular but due to the travel-friendly nature of these sets I think it is convenient. The closure is magnetic.
You can tell we have two very different palettes here. On the left is Dancing Til Dusk & on the right is See You at Midnight. Both palettes contain 4 eyeshadows, two blushes, a mini blush brush, & a mini duo applicator for shadows.
Dancing Til Dusk includes velvety browns and shimmering fawns from our Au Naturel i-Divine palette. With radiant Blush shades Mirrored Pink, an iridescent soft pink and Sahara, a matte, dark coral, for a sophisticated finish.
Mirrored Pink is kind of a frosty pink shade but with a lighter hand is pretty. I love Sahara which has some muted tones & is significantly different from the frosted pink. This palette gives you great blush options to go with the neutral eyeshadows. I’m not wild about the matte lighter shade as it is a bit harder but I think the rest are quite easy to use.
Swatches of the Sleek Dancing Til Dusk Eye & Cheek Palette over eye primer. I recommend using primer with these for longer wear time & more pigmentation.
See You at Midnight combines deep blue and pearlescent purple eyeshadows from our Romance i-Divine Palette. Along with Blush in Pomegranate, a golden berry hue and Antique a shimmery dusky rose, for a captivating look.
Although this palette is all about the shimmer & at first glance as less balance than Dancing Til Dusk…it is definitely my favorite. The blushes in this palette are gorgeous! Antique is such a soft, dusty brownish rose & the shimmer really doesn’t show up much on the skin. Pomegranate is BOMB & although I’m not sure where they got the description I’m pretty obsessed. I don’t see the gold here- it is a brightened berry with pink/red sheen. & is super pigmented! None of these shades are matte in the eyeshadows but if you throw in some neutrals you’re definitely good to go. You can see the blue & purple also have that sheen like the blush…& they’re stunners. The matte deep, dusty plum with silver shimmer is just okay here.

You can purchase Sleek Makeup directly from their website but recently I’ve been purchasing them off Amazon as well! Often they include free shipping too which is great! Either of these palettes catch your eye? Any other Sleek items you’d like to see reviewed? What are your favorite eye & cheek combo palettes?
