New MakeUp obsession of mine! <3

 As a beauty enthusiast, I love getting to explore different makeup brands – especially those that are of-quality and affordable! Some might think high end makeup brands instantly mean that it’s better but that’s not always the case. (Although I do use some high end makeup products for myself!) I guess I just focus more on how my skin reacts overall to a certain product or brand, so be it a drugstore brand or a high end one, at the end of the day it all boils down on how it is on my skin!

Sleek is finally here in Manila and guess what, I’ve heard so much people raving about it already! It’s actually a UK drugstore brand but looking at it, it really doesn’t look like it’s just a drugstore brand! <3 From it’s packaging to it’s products and swatches, it could really pass as branded to me. Two things I love the most about Sleek: it’s quality and price!

It was actually the first time I have heard of it when the products were sent to me. To my shock when I opened my package, it really exceeded my expectations! First look, I already fell in love with it! Add that the Sleek-PH team had the kits that were sent customized in a way that they hand picked each product sent to us to fit our personalities! Ahhh, i love what they did! Now I can’t stop raving about it, too!

The Sleek launch was held last month at SM Beauty Makati. It was the perfect place to launch it initially because it fits the section – both for prestige and affordability 😉

Here are some of their products and swatches. I love how it’s so wearable! Peaches and corals – very natural and fresh. It’s like the brand was for me because I. loved. everything!!!! <3

Of course, I had to check out the lippies! I love how it’s so pigmented – especially the red ones 😉

With other influencers that graced the event 🙂

Notice also that we all have the same lippie :p

Ever since I got my own Sleek makeup, it’s been a staple in my bag. Since I always opt for a natural look, the Sleek makeup I got was just perfect! Safe to say that I can survive without my bold lippie if I want to change my look! :p Just so perfect for that no makeup makeup look <3

Since I am a big fan of lippies, I use it as the main inspiration for my #faceoftheday-s. I am in love with this shade! Sort of resembles as one of Kylie Jenner’s lipsticks. I am using Sleek’s Matte Me Ultra Smooth Matte Lip Cream. Aside from it’s perfect shade, it’s so pigmented and long lasting. I am literally using it everyday. Lol.

I am also a huge fan of contouring now. Why? Because I noticed that my cheeks got bigger during the holidays! HAHAHA HUHU. </3 For the contour, I used Sleek’s contouring & blush palette. Important tip regarding contouring: blend to make it more natural looking. 🙂

The look wouldn’t be as complete with out blush on of course! I used Sleek’s Blush By 3 Palette. It has three shades in it but I used the Guipure shade. Funny thing about it though is I noticed that it really looked like Nars Orgasm Blush!!! This is definitely a great alternative without the hefty price tag!

Then for the eyes, I got my hands on Sleek’s Au Naturel 601 Eye Shadow Palette. I didn’t use it for this look but notice it’s earthy colors. Nothing too loud and it’s just perfect for everyday use. Hence the name, au naturel 😉 To finish everything off, I put on false eyelashes. My main focus of my #fotd are my eyes and lips. To me, those two go hand in hand. Since I opted for a nude lippie, I made my eyes bolder with eyeliner and falsies. 🙂 So far this has been my staple look for 2016 and I’ve been receiving compliments and people have been asking me what I use! I have a number of friends that I instantly had to introduce to Sleek already!

I am just in love with everything about Sleek makeup! Glad they’re here in Manila already because I don’t think I can function without it already. It’s really one of the brands that I’m really a fan of.
