Sleek Avoir la peche Paraguaya palette

I love eyeshadow palettes, in fact I have never brought a single eyeshadow, always opting for at least a trio so I don’t have the responsibility of putting colours together!

Although typically I am a dark/brown smokey eye look girl I was immediately drawn to this palette when I saw it at the Sleek stand in Superdrug.

Avoir la peche collection. Paraguaya. 

A beautiful selection of peach, orange, coral and brown shades in both matte and shimmer finishes. I love the femininity of the peach shades and although there are a few more orange tone shades which I don’t see myself wearing, I hope that this palette will act as a first step in encourage me to go for bolder eye looks. Having done the swatches on my arm I think that most will suit my skin tone. I also think a few of these would look lovely as a blush and may even try to use it that way although the size of the pans will make that difficult. I imagine a lot of people think Sleek should make a blusher palette and I agree.

Accompanying the collection there was a beautiful peach ‘pout polish’ which was sold out at my local store, so I will be on the look out for that, and a blush which was more of an orange shade than a peach.

As you can hopefully tell from the swatches above, the pigmentation of the shadows is great. I have never owned Sleek eyeshadows before and having now brought these I can see why they have had such great reviews. My only issue has been opening the palette, maybe I am just being to delicate with it since it is my new toy? Minor issue I know. The palette is limited edition so I would suggest getting to your closest Superdrug or ordering online if you are interested, at £6.49 for 12 shadows you will not be disappointed.
