The Sleek Makeup Nude Collection features an eyeshadow palette, blush and pout polish all in natural hues. A nude lovers dream, the i-Divine Au Naturel Palette is filled with matte nudes and a robust mixture of shimmering berries, olives and browns. Oh and let’s not leave out black…
Nougat, Nubuck, Cappuccino, Honeycomb, Toast, Taupe
Conker, Moss, Bark, Mineral Earth, Regal, Noir
In case you are wondering how the Sleek Au Naturel Palette compares to the infamous Urban Decay Naked Palette…
Top Row: Urban Decay Naked Palette Swatches
Bottom Row: Sleek Au Naturel Palette Swatches
There are a few dupes but if you are a lover of nude eyeshadows and already own the Urban Decay Naked Palette, then the two palettes are different enough to own both. If you do not own the Urban Decay Naked Palette and would like to own a nude eyeshadow palette at a fraction of the cost then this is for you. I love my Urban Decay Naked Palette and I can see the Sleek Au Naturel Palette becoming a fave as well.
The shadows in the Au Naturel Palette have pretty decent pigmentation, especially the bottom row where the colors are smooth and rich. The matte shades also glide on smooth and they are not patchy nor too powdery. I feel that Sleek could have done without a few of the nude shades in the top row and added in a rich gold and maybe a silver, since the shades are so similar. The bottom row reminds me of Fall with the deep hues, so rich in color. Overall I am impressed and the bottom row alone would have sold me on this palette!
The Nude Collection also features a blush and pout polish…
Sleek Suede Blush is a Matte Cinnamon Brown with Pink Undertones. Reminds me of a slightly lighter version of NYX Cocoa Blush. It will work well with many different skintones, but will show up better on lighter to medium complexions.
Suede Blush & Bare Minimum Pout Polish
Bare Minimum Pout Polish reminds me of MAC Boy Bait Cremesheen Glass but a little less pigmented.
I am really digging the Sleek Nude Collection. I am so used to seeing bold & bright colors from the brand and this is what originally caught my attention, however it is nice to see a more muted collection that anyone can wear. The Nude Collection is due to be released
at the end of August/Early September on August 31st. In the meantime check out the Oh So Special i-Divine Palette.
