Sleek Nude Collection - Au Naturel Palette - Reviewed!

I love Sleek eyeshadow palettes, they are such good quality and very affordable. I've slowly been trying out other things by them and I haven't been disappointed so far. This is one of the few eyeshadow palettes I own by them and it came out last August. I think I got it in the first week it came out becuase I love neutrals!

The palette itself comes in black packaging with the Sleek logo on the front. I really like the packaging becuase it is very simply but still looks elegant. Like the other Sleek palettes it comes with a double eneded sponge tip applicator which could be used if needed, it also as a really big mirror which comes in very useful.  You get 12 shadows in total, I like how there is a good mix of matte and shimmery shades in this palette, theres 8 matte and 4 shimmers which isn't always common for a drugstore palette. Some shades are a lot more pigmented than others, for example the bottom row of darker shades are very pigmented. Some of the lighter matte shades on the top row aren't as pigmented as you will see in the swatches but very a primer I find they work fine as an all over the lid shade of even a highlight. So onto the swatches!
top row - lighter shades

bottom row - darker shades

All of these swatches were done without a primer and with one they are even more pigmented. I like how there is a good range of shades and not just different variations of brown. Even though it is a neutals palette there is some lovely purple toned shades and a lovely taupe shade.
I think this palette is perfect for everyday looks but there is still some shades that can be used to deepen up a look especially the matte black which is very pigmented. It is also very affordable so if you're someone who is looking for a cheaper option to the Naked palettes by Urban Decay I would definitely recommend this one.

Sleek Eyesahdow palettes retail for £6.49 and are available at Superdrug or online here.
