Back in June, Sleek released their first cream contour kit. Being a fan of contouring and already knowing Sleek do powder contour products so well, I was eager to test this palette out for myself.
My only previous experience of using a cream based contour product was the once very popular Soliel Tan De Chanel. I really loved using it but only trouble I had, was needing to use it with a light hand to avoid looking to muddy/orange because it only came in one shade. The beauty of the Sleek Cream Contour Palette, is that it provides 6x different shades for all your contouring and highlighting needs. And what even better is that Sleek have brought out three versions of the palette; light, medium and dark – Hooray for a high street brand ensuring there is a shade for everyone. Well done Sleek!!
As for the product inside, the texture is creamy and very easy to blend and build colour. The palette provide 2x highlighting shades and 4x contouring shade, you can use to easily map your face with the classic contouring strips (made famous by Mrs. Kardashian West). And combined with using a beauty blender and the creamy texture, makes it easy to achieve the perfect contoured look! Sleek even provide a cheat sheet, to show you exactly how to contour if your new to contouring as well.
I really like this palette and would definitely recommend this for all your contouring needs – even if you are a newbie! At only £10.99, you can’t really go wrong.

If you saw my Boots Haul (link here) a couple of weeks ago, you will know that I picked up the Sleek Face Form Contouring & Blush Palette along with the Sleek Cream Contour Kit (review coming soon!). I picked it up because I thought it was a nice little palette for everything you need for your cheeks – blush, bronzer/contour and highlight!
First of all, I really like the packaging. It’s a really nice sized palette which is compact enough to keep in your makeup bag whilst the pans for all three products are big enough to dab a makeup brush in. Another big bonus as well, is that is comes with a full sized mirror in the lid of the palette.
As for the products inside, the bronzer is matte, so it’s perfect to use as a contour or as a bronzer. The shade is ok too as it’s not too dark or muddying looking. The highlight and blush however is quite shimmery. To begin with the highlight, I like a good highlight to add definition to your cheek bones but I would prefer more of glow rather than a streak of glitter on the tops of my cheeks. It’s too bad however if you use this highlight with a high hand. The blush again is quite shimmery so another one to use with a light hand but it is a lovely coral shade, so perfect for these summer months.
Overall, I’m impressed with the Sleek Face Form Contouring & Blush Palette. Although can be quite shimmery, it a good little companion to have in your makeup bag if you’re going on holiday because it will save packing three separate products. At only £10 , it’s a bargain too!
