Livin' My Best Life | NEW RELEASES From Sleek*


I mean, when a parcel stuffed full of Sleek MakeUP goodies like this arrives through ya door, it defo warrants you upgrading your living life status to 'best.' Once again, my baes at Brandnation have spoilt me rotten, with loads of brand new releases from one of my all time favourite ever drugstore brands - so rather than me weeping & swearing over-excitedly about this fact, let's cut to the chase & have a look through said goodies together, shall we?

Where to even begin? Lipglosses maybe? 

I'm a big fan of Sleek's Matte Me Lipglosses; I've bought several over the last few years thanks to their intense colour pay off and not-too-drying matte finish. The colours in this package of dreams are Stonework* [which is a brand new shade], STFU* and Petal* - and aren't they beaut 💕 I've already got through a few bottles of Petal prior to this arriving; so the restock is handy as. It's STFU that really stole my heart out of the three.

STFU is the brightest, sassiest, most vibrant cool-toned red imaginable - and I'm absolutely living for it. Unlike some of the more warm red tones, this shade doesn't make my teeth look pure yellow... it just looks sexy, fresh and hot as hell on application. It's long lasting, pigmented AF and [as mentioned before] not drying.

I'm not a big red lip wearer usually - I tend to opt for pinks, rust colours and muted nudes... but STFU has changed the game for me. I actually took it with me to a business meeting to Milton Keynes [that time alls I ranted about on Insta stories was the fact it smelled like horse poo] to rly show I meant business.

Sticking with the lip theme, can we just now take a minute to appreciate & massively perve on these new Sleek Locked Up Super Precise Liners*?! I'm a huge fan of lip liner - I regularly wear it in place of lipstick tbh [as I get a bit carried away colouring in my pout like it's in one of my de-stressing adult colouring books ] and I proper heart both the finish and the long lasting, precise look it leaves on ya lips.

The shades you see here are No Words*, Blindfolded*, Don't Slow Me Down*, Love Stoned* and Just Because*... and I'm obsessed with them. They look just like Mac liners [but without the animal cruelty & rip-off prices] and apply precisely, proper pigmentedly [lolol great new word that] yet creamy - not scratchy like some of the other cheaper lip liner products on the market can be.

Eyeliner pencils next, mebbe? I have to say, out of all the goodies this bag of tricks was stuffed to the brink with, these eyeliners are actually some of the standout products for me. They are so, so creamy, soft, long lasting and pigmented - the  new Lifeproof 12 Hour Wear Metallic Eyeliners* are actually bae - I can't wait to create some looks with the blue one. And the newly released black Intense Waterliner Eyeliner* pencil I was sent [nestling in with the metallic marriage material there] is just as creamy, soft and blendable too. NEW FAVS.

Keeping on the same eyelines [wheyyyyy], I'd also like to draw [hahaha wheyyyy, further puns] your attention to another absolute 10 that I found in my Best Life Goodie Bag. This would be of course, this fab new Fierce Felt Liner in Zodiac Black* which I can't find on Sleek's site, but can verify is an absolute beast. The precision and accuracy you can get with this bad boy is next level - it doesn't dry up or feel scratchy like others do, and it responds to every flick of the wrist; with the ink flowing in a super smooth manner. Meaning crappy cat eyes and f*cked up flicks are very much a thing of the past. Yaaaaaaas.

FINALLY, last but by no means [at all] least, let's move onto the palette. The one thing I collect, hoard & splurge on like no other. Eyeshadow. This is the hot off the press, newly release i-Lust Eyeshadow Palette in Stonework* - and with her unusual shades, insane pigmentation & dinky case; she's an absolute winner, and the perfect high to summarise this post on.

Cards on the table, I was not expecting this palette to be as abso-frigging-lutely incredible as it is. The name is right - I totes lust after this palette now I've tried & swatched it. How soft, creamy, blendable and pigmented the shades in this collection are literally blew me away. I felt like one of those pure OTT American YouTubers when they touch a piece of makeup & pretty much hyperventilate, yelling about how 'shook' they are; as I was testing it out.

Sleek have been one of my favourite affordable brands for a long time - and this round of new releases only further strengthens & renews my deep-seated love for them. Those eyeliners, man. THOSE EYELINERS!
