I can't tell you how happy I was when I learned that Sleek will ship to the US (and APO/FPO boxes)! I've been wanting to try out a bunch of their products for a while and I thought I would start with the limited edition, adorable Candy Collection eyeshadow and blush palettes. (Look at those boxes! Love it!)
Just as a note, I still haven't quite figured out the best way to take these kinds of pictures so I'm apologizing in advance! I know that the eyeshadow swatches aren't ideal, but they're the best I could get so far. I'm going to keep trying different lighting and settings to find the greatest way to do this. All of the pictures were taken in natural lighting. If you have any tips/tricks or even background preferences or anything, let me know in the comments!
First, this is the Sleek MakeUP i-Divine Candy Eyeshadow Palette. There are 12 different colors (1.1g each) for $9.99. The palette is made of plastic and comes with a mirror opposite the eyeshadows as well as the always helpful (rolls eyes) sponge tipped applicator. I don't mind the packaging. It's a little difficult for me to open, but it closes securely and is a nice size and weight. I really wish that Sleek had printed the color names somewhere on the actual palette because that's usually what I prefer and the insert looks like it was printed on twice and not very well.
Colors from left to right on the top row: Strawberry Sherbet (bright pink matte), Bon Bon (mauve shimmer), Palma Violet (deep violet matte), Apple Sour (blueish green shimmer), Pear Drop (yellow-green matte), and Flump(?) (purple matte). From left to right on the bottom row: Liqourice (black matte), Blue Fizzle (navy shimmer), Aniseed (orange copper shimmer), Bubble Gum (bright blue matte), Mint Cream (green matte), Cream Soda (cream matte).

I'm very impressed with this palette seeing as it was less than $10. There are some really nice colors that I can see myself wearing a lot and I'm excited to put this palette to use.
This is the Sleek MakeUP Blush By 3 Sweet Cheeks Candy palette. There are three different blushes (17g of product) for $12.49. The packaging is very similar to the eyeshadow palette. It's made out of the same material with a large mirror opposite the blushes and it makes the same satisfying "click" when being closed. The name of each blush is printed on the back of this palette though, so hooray for that!
The colors from left to right are Candy Floss (cream), Dolly Mix (matte), and Cupcake (shimmer).

I am obsessed with these! The pigmentation is awesome and the texture is amazing. So far, I definitely think that this palette is well worth the money.
I will no doubt be ordering more Sleek products in the future and can't wait to put these palettes to use!
Do you have any Sleek products or are you eyeing anything on the website? What do you think? Don't forget to give me any photography/setup feedback!
