A few readers of my drugstore haul showed interest in the Sleek palette I purchased so I decided to do a review on it. This palette is called 'A New Day' and I think it's quite new to the Sleek collection. It reminds me a bit of the 'Oh so special' palette, but not as pink. There is also an 'All Night Long' palette, which is overal slightly darker toned and has more shades with a metallic finish. Sleek is known for their eyeshadow palettes, I did a review on 'Au Natural' and 'Storm'. But is this one as good as the other ones"
As always, this palette is packaged as a simple, matte, black palette. It has the brand logo written on it in a shiny finish. You can say it's very 'sleek'. It's light weight and won't take up much space in your toilet bag.
There are 12 colors included in this palette, divided in two rows.
Row 1: Sun Is Shining, Brightside, Daydreamer, Let It Go, Don't Worry, Be Happy
Row 2: Feeling Good, Silver Lining, Shine On, Carpe Diem, Believer, H-A-P-P-Y
I really like how all these names have positive vibes to them! The row above has quite warm colors and the row below has more cool-toned colors.
The colors are a mix of matte, satin and shimmery colors. At the photos below, you can see the swatches of the colors. Some of them, I really like. Other were a bit disappointing...
All of the colors are swatched without a primer. Keep in mind that they will probably perform better with a primer underneath!
Row 1 (from left to right)
Sun Is Shining: A shimmery pale yellow. It's a bit of a buttery color, with shimmer in it. Very beautiful.This has a very soft consistency and is quite pigmented.
Brightside: A copper color with shimmer. Very beautiful color, but I missed that bit more *oomph*! It was a bit powdery.
Daydreamer: A cool-toned matte brown. I'm not a fan of this one at all. There's not a lot of pigment and it applied very chalky. I built up the color a bit and the swatch on the photo is a result...
Let It Go: ...
