I’ll be the first to admit that I really neglect my Sleek palette. I pulled The Original out of my drawers a couple of weeks ago having not touched it for a long time and have actually got a pretty decent amount of use out of it since then. And it really is a fantastic palette:
(With Sugarpill Lumi)
The standard Sleek black in this palette is pretty poor; Although I did do this swatch with fingers on bare skin and it adheres to a brush much better, it’s still a bit difficult to work with. The gold has an odd texture as well, but other than that, the rest of the colours are really really smooth and easy to work with. Bear in mind this palette is more than a year old, so they may well have changed since then! I think if you’re a colour fan, this palette is amazing and full of awesome jewel-toned goodness, but the coppers and khaki/olives mean you can easily incorporate it into work looks and whatnot.
And just in case you haven’t seen it yet, I love love love this recent tutorial by Nic with the palette!
What are your “oldies but goodies”?
