All about Sleek

On Fleek


 

Abia atunci cand vine vorba de cosmetice lucrurile scapa de sub control, cel putin asa e in cazul meu. Sa gasesti si ieftin si bun si in acelasi timp sa stii ca animalutele nu au fost implicate sau ranite pentru fardul de pe pleoapele tale, e bineinteles destul de greu. Imi place sa cred ca iar va vin in ajutor oferindu-va optiunea ideala, din nou, din punctul meu de vedere.

 

Only when it comes to cosmetics things get out of control, at least in my case. Finding cheap quality products and also making sure no animal has been involved or harmed for your eyeshadow it is of course difficult. I would like to think that I am helping you again with this article, offering the ideal solution, again, from my point of view.

 

Daca nu ai trait sub o piatra pana acum, cu siguranta ai auzit de firma cosmetica Sleek. Eu trebuie sa fiu sincera si sa va aduc la cunostinta ca am aflat de ea abia acum un an jumatate cand ma aflam in UK. Nu, nu am trait sub o piatra, doar am trait in Romania.:) Primul produs achizitionat de la ei a fost un ruj lichid din colectia Matte Me, in perioada haotica a culorilor lansate si purtate de Kylie Jenner. De atunci suntem suflete pereche, facuti unul pentru altul, nimeni si nimic nu il poate inlocui. Pe langa faptul ca rezista mult, mult in sensul ca tine si o zi intreaga chiar daca mananci, bei, vorbesti non stop, nu il simti pe buze. Serios, nu glumesc, e ca si cum devine una si aceeasi cu buzele tale. Tare, nu? Foarte accesibil ca pret, gama variata de culori, calitate, nimeni nu a avut de suferit, ce vrei mai mult?

 

If you haven’t lived under a rock, you heard about Sleek cosmetics. I have to be honest by letting you know that I’ve found out about it one year and a half ago while I was in the United Kingdom. No, I wasn’t living under a rock before, I was in Romania.:) The first product that I purchased was the Matte Me lipstick, during the chaotic period of worn and released colours by Kylie Jenner. Since then we are soul mates, made for each other, nothing can possibly replace it. Except the fact that it has a long lasting, long meaning that it can stay on your lips for a whole day even if you eat, drink or talk a lot, you won’t feel it. Really, I’m not kidding, like it’s one and the same with your lips. Cool, right? Very accessible price, a variety of colours, quality and nobody suffered, what do you want more?

 

Dar nu am sa vorbesc numai despre un ruj in culoarea Birthday Suit, apropo, am sa vorbesc si despre fardurile lor care, din nou, au reusit sa ma impresioneze si sa imi faca aplicarea machiajului si mai frumoasa ( usoara ). La fel ca si luciul de buze, rezista foarte mult, chiar am fost plecata o zi intreaga pe drumuri, ploaie, vant, transpirat si ghici ce? Atat rujul cat si fardul au decis sa ma sustina pana la final. Am fost insa si dezamagita caci machiajul Pin up ales de mine a fost creat din farduri Sleek dar si The Balm, si da, doar Sleek a reusit sa ramana pe pozitii.

 

But I won’t be talking only about a liquid lipstick Birthday Suit shade, by the way, I will also talk about the eyeshadows, which again, managed to impress me and make the makeup application even more enjoyable ( easier ). The same as the lipstick it will last for a long period and actually I was out for a whole day, rain, wind, sweat and guess what? The lipstick and also the eyeshadow decided to stay with me till the end of the day. But I was also disappointed because the pinup makeup that I chose had also eyeshadow from The Balm, and yes, only Sleek lasted till the end.

 

Am sa vorbesc strict despre produsele deja achizitionate si testate, presupun ca si celelalte sunt super dar nu ma arunc sa imi dau cu parerea fara sa ajunga mai intai pe mana mea. Asadar, sa incepem 🙂

 

I will talk only about the products that I purchased and tested, I suppose that the others are also good but I won’t jump into conclusions without having them tried by me. This been said, let’s start.


Sleek Eyeshadow Palette

I-Divine – A New Day

Nu stiu daca intr-adevar sunt adepta culorilor nude sau pur si simplu sunt prea lenesa sa risc dar daca arunci o privire in trusa mea de make-up ai sa vezi branduri diferite cu aceleasi culori sau in unele cazuri, foarte putin diferite. A New Day, asa cum ti-ai dat seama deja, e o paleta ce consta in culori nude atat mate cat si sidefate. Cu putina indemnare bineinteles ca o poti transforma si intr-o paleta pentru machiajul de seara dar in princiupiu, este de zi, casual, natural s.a.m.d. Consta in 12 nuante sase mate si sase sidefate care bineinteles ca poarta denumiri simpatice pe care daca le unesti ai sa vezi ca propriul tau machiaj o sa poarte un nume,cum e in cazul meu: Sun is shining, Daydreamer, Don’t Worry! Fain, nu? Bineinteles ca vine si cu o pensula buretel pe care nu am sa o folosesc niciodata, dar gestul conteaza! 🙂 Paleta costa 49 de lei pe ThemakeupShop iar daca esti Makeup Artist ai o super reducere. Da un click si ai sa gasesti toate informatiile necesare!

I actually don’t know if I am into nude colours that much or I’m just lazy trying something else but if you will snoop around in my makeup bag, you will find different brands but same colours or maybe just in some cases a slight difference. A New Day, as you may already guessed, it is a nude palette both mat and pearly. With some skill you will be able to transform it into a night makeup palette but basically it’s a day one, casual, natural etc. 12 Eyeshadows, 6 pearly and six mat which have cute names and after finishing applying it, if you will read you will see that now your makeup has a name. In my case: Sun is Shining, Daydreamer, Don’t Worry, cool, right? It has also a sponge brush which I won’t be ever using it but thanks for trying! 🙂 ( price 9 pounds )

I-Divine – Vintage Romance

A doua paleta achizitionata consta in culori putin mai tari, ca sa zic asa, foarte diferite de alegerile mele anterioare, chiar putin socante. Dar nu are asta importanta. Nu as putea spune ce fard imi place cel mai putin sau cel mai mult, dar Love in London a reusit sa ma cucereasca. Modul in care se prinde pe pensula, usurinta cu care poate fi blenduit si trecerea eleganta pe care o face la cealalta culoare atunci cand il amesteci, este pur si simplu magica. Cred ca numai pentru nuanta asta merita sa cumperi aceasta paleta. Sunt atat de incantata ca sincer abia astept urmatoarea iesire doar ca sa le folosesc. Honeymoon in Hollywood, nu mai este un vis, sta ascunsa in paleta ta gata sa fie adusa la viata. E o paleta pe care chiar si ca incepator o poti folosi cu usurinta, culorile parca iti spun cum sa le amesteci, cum se potrivesc cel mai bine.

The second palette contains stronger colours which is a little bit unusual for me, very different from my previous choices, a little bit shocking I may add. But this is not relevant. I can’t possibly say which colour I like the most or less but Love in London got me. The way that the brush easily catches the eyeshadow, the blending and how elegant it passes from one colour to another it is purely magical. I think that it’s worth buying this palette only for Love in London. I am so excited about it that honestly I can’t wait to go out wearing them. Honeymoon in Hollywood is no longer a dream, it’s hidden in this product ready to be brought to life. A palette that even as a beginner it is easy to use, the colours seem to tell you how to mix them.

I-Divine –  Goodnight Sweetheart

Este practic un Limited Edition aparut in septembrie anul trecut, nu stiu cat e de limitata sau nu dar cert este ca nu merita riscul sa astepti sa vezi, pentru ca dupa tot tu ai de pierdut. Asta este cu siguranta paleta Must Have a celor de la Sleek, pentru ca indiferent de eveniment sau perioada a zilei, o poti modela dupa bunul plac. Cu putina indemanare ai sa vezi ca fardurile iti permit sa creezi culori noi atunci cand le suprapui, reusind intr-adevar, nu credeam ca mai este posibil, sa realizezi un machiaj unic. Seduction, Velvet Wrap, L.O.V.E, Sweet Dreams si Sleeping Beauty sunt probabil primele ce or sa te cucereasca. Ambalajul este si el diferit, ca pentru un Limited Edition simpatic si pretul surprinzator pe TheMakeupShop este acelasi. Deci, intra repede pana nu se termina stocul.

Practically a Limited Edition released in September last year but I don’t know how limited it is but for sure you can’t take the risk on finding out because if you won’t find it after a while you will lose. This is for sure a Must Have from Sleek because no matter the event or time of the day, you can use it as you desire. With little skill you will see that the eyeshadows allow you to to create new colours by overlaying them, managing to create indeed, I didn’t think it is possible anymore, an unique makeup. Seduction, Velvet Wrap, L.O.V.E, Sweet Dreams and Sleeping Beauty are probably the first to win your heart. The packaging is also different as for a Limited product I presume and unusual, the price is the same. So buy it quickly!

Matte Me Baby

Birthday Suit

Cu siguranta preferatul meu, este precum Great Lash ( celebrul rimel ) pentru Maybelline New York. Culoarea este dementiala asa cum am spus si mai sus, pentru machiaj nude sau perfect pentru fetele ce obisnuiesc sa puna mai mult accent pe ochi. Zi, noapte, iesit la o terasa sau mers la cumparaturi, el o sa fie mereu acolo. Da senzatia de buze pline si face orice machiaj sa para mai profesional.( Pret 30 lei )

Certainly my favourite, it is like Great Lash ( the famous mascara ) for Maybelline New York. The colour is crazy as I already said, perfect for nude makeup or for the girls that prefer to put more accent on their eyes. Day, night, going out or just shopping, it will be there for you no matter what. You will see fuller lips and also makes an ordinary makeup look professional.

BitterSweet

Ceva mai intens decat primul mentionat, dar desigur, la fel de usor de modelat dupa bunul plac, fiind perfect atat pentru machiajul de seara, de zi sau pentru o zi lunga pe drumuri sau la facultate. Cu ele chiar nu trebuie sa ai nici cel mai mic stres, ai sa arati super pana la finalul zilei. Dupa aplicare ai sa vezi buze mult mai definite, mai pline si in acelasi timp nu incarca, reusind sa fie discret si elegant.

More intense than the first one, but of course easy to add on every makeup, both night and day or just casual for Uni. With them you really don’t have to be stressed, you will look wonderful till the end of the day. After applying it you will se more defined and fuller lips, a natural appearance, discreet and elegant.

Shabby Chic

In cazul lui, depinde foarte mult de stilul tau personal. Daca iti place sa iesi mai mult in evidenta, atunci poate fi folosit si ziua iar daca nu, probabil ca il poti purta doar seara. Desi face parte din aceeasi serie, la el cred ca ar fi o mica problema, caci in contact cu apa sau in fine, orice lichid, se aduna pe buze si devine putin cam inestetic. Daca reusesti sa cureti acest surplus, ca sa spun asa, tot ramane pe buze dar din pacate nu o sa arate proaspat, ca si cum abia l-ai aplicat. Este cam singurul ce se abate de la regula si din pacate nu am reusit sa gasesc o explicatie.

On this one it depends mostly on your personal style. If you are more of a stand out person, you can use it during the day, if not, you probably be able to use it only for night makeup. Even it is part of the same collection, I think it has a small problem because in contact with water or any liquid, it gathers on your lips in a strange way. If you will clean this excess, if I can call it like this, it will still last on your lips but unfortunately it won’t look like it was just apply, fresh.  It is the only one deviating from the rule, not the sharpest pencil in the drawer. Sadly, I didn’t find a way to fix this problem.
