Review: Sleek Vintage Romance palette

Friday, November 22, 2013

Well, hello there.

I'm sure you already heard a lot about the Sleek Vintage Romance palette, but I guess one more review  won't hurt anyone, right?

First, let me tell you that I was a bad blogger and I actually threw away the packaging whit all the names of eyeshadows written on. So if you would like to see that, you should visit my fellow Slovenian blogger Taya that also reviewed this palette.

Now onto the review which will also be in Slovene since the lovely Anja from Moja Drogerija provided us a discount code for all Sleek palettes.


This is my first Sleek palette or actually my first Sleek product, if I'm being correct. I was actually very excited to try this because I heard some great things about their products, but I also didn't know what to expect since I can get a little bit spoiled with my Urban Decay palettes. 
I really like the packaging, it's very sleek (as the name would suggest)  and I love that it comes with such big mirror, I find it to be very convenient. 
The one thing I noticed about the packaging and I'm not a fan of, is how quickly it gets dirty. Has anyone else experienced that or am I just a messy person?

Ko nam je Anja ponudila kodo za popust pri nakupu Sleek palet sem bila zelo navdušena, saj še nikoli nisem preiskusila nobenega Sleek izdelka, čeprav sem o njih slišala že veliko dobrih stvari. 
Prva stvar, ki mi je pri paleti všeč, je ''sleek'' izgled. Paleta je zelo tanka, vsebuje pa tudi ogromno ogledalo, kar jo naredi zelo praktično, še posebej za kakšna potovanja ali pa za bolj precizen nanos senčil.
Sem pa opazila, da se je paleta kar hitro umazala, zdi se mi kot da se na njej pozna vsak prstni odtis.


I really think that this palette has a great colour selection. On one side it has more neutral shades, but on the other it also has some darker, purplish shades for anyone who would want to add a little something, something to their eyes. I also think that this could maybe be the best palette for autumn/winter, and even though I tend to stick with those brown/gold shades, just looking at the bottom row of the palette makes me excited.
I would be even happier if there were one or two more matte shades, but I can easily fix that with pairing this palette with UD Basics, which I've been doing pretty much since I got this.

Menim, da ima tale paleta ravno pravo izbiro odtenkov. Že samo ob pogledu na paleto, se takoj spomnim na barve listja v jeseni. 
Vse, ki se raje držimo bolj nevtralnih senčk, imamo na voljo par krasnih rjavkasto-zlatih odtenkov, prav tako pa je na voljo par vijoličastih odtenkov za tiste, ki ste bolj '''pogumne'' ali pa si v svoje življenje želite vnesti malo barve. 
Želela bi si edino kakšen matte odtenek več, vendar se načeloma ne pritožujem, ker to paleto redno kombiniram z UD Basics.


I find the shadows to be quite pigmented, some more than the other, but all in all much better than most drugstore eyeshadows. They are also buttery soft and easy to blend. I also find them to be very long lasting and they don't fade away throughout the day. I also don't notice any fall out while applying them.

Pigmentacija senčk je dobra, nekatere senčke so sicer nekoliko manj pigmentirane kot druge, a še vedno je pigmentiranost očitno boljša kot pri večini senčil iz drogerij.
Senčke so tudi zelo mehke in se z lahkoto zabrišejo, prav tako pa ob nanosu nisem opazila ''fall outa'' . Všeč mi je tudi, da so dolgo obstojne in čez dan ne zbledijo. 

This palette has quickly become one of my go-to palettes and I use it on a daily basis. My favourite shades are Propose in Prague (the matte, coppery brown shade), Lust in LA (darker shimmery brown shade) and Court in Cannes (Shimmery golden brown). If I'm feeling adventurous, I'll also pair the Marry in Monte Carlo (the last purple shade in second row) and Honeymoon in Hollywood (first shade in third row) with Maybelline's Metalic Pomegranate Color Tattoo.  

Ta paleta je hitro postala stalnica v mojem vsakdanjem procesu ličenja. Moji najljubši in največkrat uporabljeni odtenki so Propose in Prague, Lust in LA in Court in Cannes. Kadar pa se počutim nekoliko bolj spontano ali pa za večerni make-up pa rada izberem tudi Marry in Monte Carlo in Honeymoon in Hollywood, ter ju kombiniram z Metalic Pomegranate Color Tattoojem od Maybelline. 

Which shades do you like the most?

P.S. As soon as I'm done with my shopping ban, I'm getting another Sleek palette.
P.S.S I added two sets of swatches because they are photographed under a different light, so you can see both versions.
