    Sleek MakeUp Launches New Collection

    When it comes to make up palettes, Sleek is definitely my number one go to for sparkling sultry greatness. So when I heard they were launching a new range of beauty products, I was literally counting down the days until I went to the Sleek MakeUp Launch Party and finally had their new products in my hands.

    And it was well worth the wait!

    While I was there, I discovered three new beautiful palates that I know you won’t want to miss out on.


    Precious Metal £9.99

    Precious Metal is gold, glossy and all round good.  The colours are rich and shimmery so it promises you a radiant glow. It’s creamy dewy texture makes it easy to use for blending, so easy that if you wanted you could probably apply it with your fingers. Use Precious metal to highlight your face, lifting your cheek bones for more of a defined contoured look. This is also a multi-functioning palette, which means you get your money’s worth, using it as either eyeshadow or for a nice glistening shine on top of a bronzer.

    In addition to the collection, Sleek have two brand new Eye and Cheek palates that are travel size so you can bring them with you everywhere. It’s really easy to open and close because of it’s snap shut magnetic mechanism, and it comes with a mirror and brush. Colours in these compacts also have a high pigment which makes them long lasting.

    See You At Midnight £9.99

    With inspiration from Sleek’s Romance i-Divine Palette, See You At Midnight has a range of deep purple tones and an option of either gold or brown suitable for all skin tones. Equipped with four eyeshadow shades and two intense blush colours, I would say this palate would be fantastic for an iridescent evening look.

    Dancing Till Dusk £9.99

    These shades were influenced by Sleek’s Au-Naturel i-Divine palette and also have a mix of eyeshadow and blusher. Dancing Till Dusk includes browns and golds which work great for cheek and eye definition. Both coral and pink blushes are bold and bursting with colour, which work well for a fun and flirty look. I’d recommend using this palate for a cheeky night on the town.

    As well as those, Sleek have a new range of lipgloss “Gloss Me” colours to try out – all of them luscious and totally wearable. Sarah Jane Crawford who hosted Sleek MakeUp’s launch tested and wore a gloss with red tones and looked amazing.

    Along side the make-up, Sleek also have a new collection of “Sleek Loves Gel Nails” varnish available. I tried this out and the colours provide complete coverage and give you a silky smooth finish. My favourite was this beaut up in the forefront called Purplesque.

    As all the glam goodies made their debut, Sleek gave us a fashion show in which  the new collection was used and put to the test. Here’s some looks from the show.

    Nicki Minaj’s Second Lipstick for MAC Viva Glam

    Nothing kicks up a stir in the beauty world quite like a new MAC release, and Nicki Minaj’s latest Viva Glam lipstick is certainly no exception.

    The RRP from all MAC Viva Glam lipsticks sold is paid to the MAC Aids Fund, a charity set up to help men, women and children from all over the world that are affected by AIDS and HIV. To date the fund has raised over $224,000 thanks to the popularity of these lippies!


    Nicky Minaj is just one of many celebs that has collaborated with Mac for The Viva Glam range , with past campaigns including Cyndi Lauper, Lady Gaga and the most recent addition to the clan, Ricky Martin.

    But we do love Nicki and suggest you check it out too! The hip hop princess’ first lipstick, Viva Glam Nicki (a bright coral toned pink), created quite the stir upon its release, and the second instalment to her collection is already following in its footsteps. Viva Glam Nicki 2 is a cool pastel lavender colour and, like its predecessor, it’s the kind of show stopping shade Nicki herself loves to sport.

    A complimenting ‘lipglass’ in the same cool lavender hue has been released alongside the lipstick as part of the Viva Glam range, so you can pair the two in a true homage to Minaj or tone things down a little by wearing them separately.


    As with virtually all MAC lip products, you can consider yourself assured that the quality is impeccable and both of Nicki’s latest offerings apply like a dream.

    So, with Viva Glam Nicki 2 you can channel her Minajesty whilst feeling good about the fact that your hard earned cash is going to a good cause. As if you really needed an excuse to add another lippie to your collection anyway…

    Get it: Both Viva Glam Nicki and Viva Glam Nicki 2 lipsticks and lipglasses can be purchased from www.maccosmetics.co.uk or from MAC counters and stores. The lipsticks are priced at £14 and the lipglasses at £13.50.
