At the end of summer Sleek released its limited edition nude collection for Autumn/Winter 2011 compromising of the 12-piece Au Naturel I-Divine palette, Suede blusher and Bare Minimum Pout Polish.
I am loving the autumnal and rich colours in this palette, from shimmering champagnes to the warm and soft dark browns. I think this is a beautiful collection of colours that are really on trend to achieve smokey brown looks and the red and orange tones to some of the colours really provide autumn warmth. Most of the shimmering colours are well pigmented, however with the matte shades I found the colour pay off wasn't particularly strong and it took a lot of work to build on the colour. However, like all other Sleek palettes this one retails at £6.49 so is undoubtedly fantastic value for 12 shadows, even if some of them aren't amazing to work with.
The blusher, although not particularly 'nude' and more of a terracota peachy colour is pretty nether the less and it adds warmth to the cheek. It can also be used as a contour but because it is quite orange toned this would only benefit certain skin types, so potentially test it out first and see how it suits!
The Bare Minimum is a natural peachy colour that adds just enough colour to make the lips look healthy and full. This kind of product is great for teaming with rich smokey eyes. It also smells great because it contains sweet almond oil, and also contains avocado and jojoba to keep lips nourished and moisturised. It also contains SPF 15 to keep lips protected and all at £4.29.
An overall warm and autumnal collection, with pretty colours and a few staple bits that are perfect for autumn trends.
