Sleek makeup has been one of the most promising cosmetic brands that recently arrived in Manila. Not only do they have a line-up that can complete your entire makeup kit, they're also surprisingly affordable. Almost all, if not all their products are highly pigmented, making them favorites of makeup artists like me.

Last month, Sleek gathered bloggers and makeup artists to reintroduce the brand and new makeup in their line-up, most appropriate for the cooler months ahead.

Here are my top three favorites that have become staples in my makeup kit:

1. Cream Contour Palette

This palette has six creamy shades that sculpts, defines and highlights to create the illusion of refined features, higher cheekbones, a softer jaw line or a slimmer nose. The velvety formula is buildable and blends seamlessly onto the skin for a flawless, fade proof finish.

Available in three shades (light, medium & dark), the kit’s expertly developed combination of shades works with all skin tones to create natural shadows and highlights. Each shade has a specific function:
Shade 1 – highlighting
Shade 2 – deeper highlighting
Shade 3 – concealing/ blending contouring
Shade 4 – contouring or adding subtle shadowing effects
Shade 5 – creating the illusion of shadows
Shade 6 – adding deeper shadow effects

2. i-Divine Palette | P848.00

Each Sleek Makeup i-Divine palette have 12 shades of super-pigmented, longlasting, mineral based eyeshadows. The finish is iridescent that gives an overal radiant effect. Available in a variety of colour ways, i-Divine was made for us artists who needs just the right colors in a sleek palette that won't bulk up on makeup kits.  I particularly love The Original, as I'm a fan of metallic colours. There's bronze, purple and sparkling taupes, allowing me to create endless shimmery looks fit for day or night.  

3. Barekissed Illuminator | P795.00

This versatile liquid illuminator in Cuba shade makes strobing like a pro possible for anyone. Use the this highligher to focus attention to cheekbones, brow bones, tip of the nose, cupid's bow and decolletage. I'm particularly in love with this shade (dupe of NARS Orgasm) as it enhances a gorgeous tan. If you're more on the fair side of skintone, get Monaco instead, a pearly shade that reminds me of NARS Copacabana.

Sleek is available in all leading department stores nationwide and online in Zalora and Sephora PH.
