Sleek Makeup are set to launch another, yes another, new collection and this range is all about the nudes and au naturel beauty. With their signature eyeshadow palette offering a selection of shades from your earthy browns and tans to your pearly oyster and champagne shimmers, it is perfect for those wishing to achieve a natural, subtle eye look.
The accompanying blush in Suede is ok, nothing really to rave about but offers a nice, matte flush of dirtied peachy-brown which I think would be best for contouring the cheeks.
However, being a quite a lover of a nude lip, it was no surprise that I was most excited by their new pout polish in Bare Minimum (£4.29). Just like all their preceding pout polishes, it smells lovely, fruity and sweet, and is ultra conditioning enriched with Jojoba, Avocado and Sweet Almond Oil. It also has SPF 15 which is always a bonus. In the tin this product looks really promising, but unfortunately Bare Minimum pout polish would be more aptly named Barely There as the pigmentation is quite disappointing. It really is more of a clear lipgloss and you need to apply a lot to achieve any sort of colour pay-off on your lips. Its sheerness is a shame considering the amazing pigmented colours I have previously experienced with Sleek’s pout polishes.
Bar the lack of pigmentation, this pout polish is good for conditioning and offers a gorgeous sheen to the lips. For me it is too bland to wear alone but worn over another lipstick (for example MAC’s Fleshpot as above) it does work really well.
If you are after a very sheer, barely there lipgloss to just give you a subtle sheen then this product is for you, but if you were hoping for a rich, glossy, nude finish, think Creme d’nude, you will be duly disappointed.
This collection is a permanent addition to Sleek Makeup’s range and is available online and from Superdrug stores from 31st August 2011.
