I don’t live near a Sleek counter, so when my shopping trip takes me a bit further (to where they do stock it) i usually like to buy something to try out.
I had seen a few reviews & hauls of this particular item & I really wanted to try it out for myself as it would be a nifty little item for your makeup bag.
Sleek Face Contour Kit comes in three different shades. Light, Medium & Dark. I bought the light one obviously. Now, the first thing that i noticed was the awfully tacky packaging..not the actual box, or the information on the box or the way it’s set out..the awful model. Correct me if i’m wrong, but she looks like something you’d see on the front of a trashy porn dvd or the front page of Nuts (a trashy gentlemans magazine full of boobies) White shirt open, tie..moody weird vampy face. It’s awful. Please Sleek, try and be a bit more creative with your models. It also looks like it was taken with a digital camera and just placed on there. I think it would have looked better with no model on there. I apologise if you happen to be the model on the front of this box..i’m sure this was not your choice. :)
When i got home and opened the box to try it out, i notice 2 lovely nail marks through the bronzer..someone had either opened this in the shop and just dug their nails in because that’s what they like to do..or this happened when it was packaged. Obviously this doesnt change the way the product works, it was just not what i wanted to open up a new item to find. If this was a Mac Blusher, i would have taken it back.
The actual product packaging & product itself is FAB! The bronzer is matte, which often people find difficult to find. The colour is perfect & it’s pigmented & easily blendable as well as the highlighter.
Besides the little things like the trashy porn woman on the box & the nail marks, this is a brilliant contour kit. It’s easy to use and even comes with a little booklet explaining how and where to contour and highlight. Excellent for those of you who have always wanted to try it but never knew what to buy or from where.
RRP: The kit was around £4-5. I can’t remember off the top of my head & actually when searching for it on the sleek website, it redirected me to a china sex musuem site..i’m thinking they have been hacked! eek.
