"Sleek Original Palette"

This is another winner from Sleek. Gorgeous, gorgeous… did I say gorgeous?! For all of you Metallic/Frost eyeshadow lovers, this one is for you. The Original Palette consists of 11 metallic shadows in an array of beautiful colors, and a matte black with a slight sheen to it. The shadows are very pigmented and applied smooth. The swatches were done without a base.

The Original Palette retails for $10 USD. For some reason the prices has gone up on Sleek’s website for the palettes since I placed my order, they were $8.51 then. I am totally not feeling this change in price. Did Sleek recently implement a price increase? I will have to investigate, maybe you UK girlies can help me out. I still believe that the palette is worth the price, but I am taking off a point for Sleek’s ridiculously high shipping… $13.50 USD to NYC!!! I let it slide before, but I can not tolerate highway robbery┬á in shipping fees AND a price increase. Hmph.

Rating: 4/5

FOTD’s coming soon. Any requests?

Aside from my 9-5, I'm a Freelance MUA & Hair Stylist with a love of all things beauty & fashion. When I'm not hunting down the latest and greatest beauty products, beating a face or lacing a do, you can find me roaming the streets of NYC in my stilettos looking for the next best restaurant. Or in the kitchen trying to outdo myself from the last time.


  1. @Vixxan No problem Vixxan. I totally feel you. I definitely want to try more Sleek palettes and other products, but I am going to have to find them elsewhere unless they come down on the shipping. I will even settle for free shipping with a certain amount.@Edwina That sounds like the perfect plan and you get to play with the products beforehand in person :)@Tinuke Thank you!@Salina Yes, isn't it gorgeous?! lol@Amandita Once you get one you will definitely want them all, I think they are addictive lol. Maybe I will try a purple and black smokey eye.@areqoq You are totally right. The shipping is quite unbelievable.@Claire My pleasure. Thank you!

  2. Oh wow, the colours in this palette are so vivid! Love! But that price hike – very strange. It does make the high shipping fees less forgiveable.

  3. Oh dear God, what happened to the days when Sleek palettes were only £4.99? Now they are £6.49. WHAT?! So yes, there is a price hike, blame our awful government for the tax increase. So glad that Sleek are getting some major love over in the US as well though, I have always stood by them.

    • For the quality of the products, it is still such a great price with a nice selection as well. Oh how I wish we could get Sleek here locally in the US *sigh*
