Gigantic Haul: Sleek MakeUp

It's been a while since I wanted to place my Sleek order due to the big ka-fuffle at christmas. They'd given everybody 50% off but most orders placed were cancelled due to the influx in visitors. I was really disappointed when I found out my order was one of those, and after countless emails still hadn't found out what was going to happen. I emailed then at least 5 times without reply, so when I did get a reply saying a voucher code would be sent soon I was pretty excited!

That was in January. I received my code around 3 weeks ago and asked them to hold the expiry date so I could pick up some things when they came back from 'out of stock'. I was told it wouldn't take long, but as they haven't came back yet I decided to order other things instead. I'm really upset with how bad their customer service is, and how bad quality the website is. You try to delete 1 thing from your basket and it deletes everything, just a little annoying glitch you don't want!

Anyway, happy thoughts! I ended up ordering 19 items. The total cost was around £45 after the discount.. but I knew I'd end up getting these things anyway. It's also exam season, and I was craving a splurge!

 
At the front you can see 5 different 'light' foundation samples. I got these to both see which shade I am (shell I think) and mix them with my daily foundation when I want it a little lighter/darker during the summer months.

I got the Bad Gal palette after seeing it on Hannah's blog, and seeing how intense the colour are. I've got the Original and Storm palettes and adore them both, so knew what to expect. These aren't colours I would wear on a daily basis, but they will look great for a night out!

I saw this Glisten Me on the website and had a look at some blog reviews. People like it, but didn't seem to say too much about it. I know exactly what they mean, it's a decent highlight but it's nothing amazing. I don't really like the spatula this comes with, but I can live with that! I'm looking forward to using this rather than my MSF this summer as liquid/creme makeup always makes skin look healthier in the sun! 

As for the free lipgloss phone charm, I'm not liking it. It's very sticky..

I may have gone over the top with these, but I was getting them for £2 each so I couldn't say no! I've done swatches of these yesterday if you'd like to have a look, I've also got Peaches & Cream and Vixen. My favourite out of these so far are Coral Reef and Papaya Punch. These all look similar in the box but on the lips you can definitely see the difference. I love them!

More lip products! I'd never had a pout polish before, but haven't stopped seeing people talking about them here in the blogging community. I absolutely love the texture of these, exactly like a lip balm. I'm pretty amazed by these!

(clockwise from top left): Rose Gold, Pomegranate, Flushed, Flamingo, Pan Tao, Sahara
Now this is my weakness, blusher. If I could buy one beauty product other than foundation for the rest of my life, I would have a humungous collection of blusher. I already have Pixie Pink and Coral, with Coral being my daily blusher at the moment. These are so pigmented and the colour range is great! For £4.30 (£2.15 for this haul) you can't really go wrong!

I definitely have enough makeup to last me for the next century now, so I'm going to have a clear out to make room for everything. I would say out of everything I brought, I'd say the Sahara blusher is my favourite product so far (only from swatches) which I'm really surprised about. It's such a strange colour for a blush, but I think it looks really nice on the skin. What's your favourite Sleek product?

  12. Shame the customer service is so bad, but I agree with you on the blusher, it's my ultimate weakness! I also need to try Sleek pout polishes, do you have swatches of those? I'd love to see the pigmentation :)
