Sleek Paraguaya Palette Review (*Spoiler - I think it's overrated*)
I just bought the latest limited edition Sleek palette from Superdrug last week. It's called the Paraguaya palette from the Avoir La Peche collection. This collection also came out with a very orange blush. I know the theme is meant to be peach but for me these shades come across too orange for my liking. I bought it because reviews on it were so positive and I figured there were some shades I'd definitely wear so I could ignore the one or two unwearable shades. When I opened up my palette I was thoroughly disappointed however. So, so orange! I'd never wear so much orange in a year (shelf life for these eyeshadows is 12 months). They are also very crumbly. I get a lot of fallout with all Sleek eyeshadows but these were something else. Very gritty and not smooth on the eyelids at all. The matt shades were also a little staining. I haven't swatched any shades to show you because I'm going to ship mine off to whoever wants it (I guess I'll eBay it for the orange lovers). The colours really are that orange - unless you know for definite you can work orange and are a big fan, there really is no point going in for this collection. The non-orange shades are easily duped from other Sleek palettes or just other brands in general. I just wish I hadn't bothered myself. I bought this simply 'cause of the hype. Gah, I'm an advertiser's dream, I'm so gullible when it comes to new products.
