My favourite 'Sleek' eyeshadow palette

I love most of the sleek eyeshadow palettes. If you want a low-end eyeshadow palette with good quality, then "Sleek" is it.......well for me sha.

Those who are familiar with this brand prolly knows that they have several eyeshadow palettes with different names. Personally, i have the "Snapshots", "Oh so special", "Storm", "Bad girl", "Paraguaya" and "Sunset" palettes. But my most favorite of these palettes is


The "Bad girl" palette *flips hair and dims eyes*.

If you love smokey looks, then this palette is perfect for you. It's a mixture of metallic and matte-textured eyeshadows, made up of greens, blues, purples, blacks, greys, a cream and a white.

Now, y'all know that i love to use a colored eyeshadow as a base for my smokey eyes. I usually apply any color of my choice all over my lids first, then i layer on the black to the intensity that i desire and smoke it out. That way, the black turns out not so black 'cos it will have a base color.

You gerrit?

A closer look
The blues in this palette are matte, so is one of the purples....the lighter one (I'm sure it has a name, but i have absolutely no idea what it is). Then, the other colors are metallic. Great stuff!

Dunno why.....but anyone that sees this palette falls in love with it, so i assume it's safe to say that a lot of ladies love smokey eyes. If you are one of us, then you know wats up! Oya, chop knuckle.

Here are the swatches from the palette............

I paid N2,200 for mine, but you can get it as low as N1,800 too, it depends on the seller. I remember paying N1,800 for my "Snapshots" palette. Anyway, i think I'll randomly review all my sleek palettes sha. There's one i want to buy, and it's called the "Aqua collection" i think. Not so sure. I'm still searching for it sha. When i find it, you will know. *winks*

So beauties.......will you buy the "Bad girl" palette?


Do you love smokey eyes?


  1. I have this palette and also the storm palette. Nice review.

  2. I have this palette also but have difficulty in using most of the colours..*covers face*. I just use the blues, purples and the black. As for the others, I really don't know how and when to apply it. They are usually too dull I think, or maybe I'm not getting it right. What can I do?....BL

  3. I forgot to say welldone for a good job. Nice blog, please keep it up.....BL

    1. Oooooooh! Thanks dear. About the other shades on the palette, i use them by mixing them with other colors (not necessarily from this same palette). I've come to discover that all eyeshadow colors (if the quality is good) can be utilized beautifully....that's if you are creative and can mix the right colors. I might do a look mixing those shades with other colors soon.

  4. I love smokey eyes but didnt know how to do it right until I read your blog. although, not yet perfect but I love the way my face looks these days! thanks to you Chi.

  5. I have this palette. Its really nice 4 smokey look. Thanks.

  6. I have never used Sleek palettes until recently and I must say I was very pleasantly surprised. They are great quality, awesome pigmentation and have a lovely range of colours. I bought the dark mattes palette, there just never are enough matte shades in other eyeshadow palettes - and I love them! I will definitely have to get this palette next, thank you for your swatches and please do come by my fairly new blog xx

  7. I have dis pallete wit d storm n original too, sleek eyeshadows r so luvly.
