SLEEK MAKEUP

So today I’m posting about one of my favourite ‘drug store’ brands… Sleek Makeup. Quite a few ladies in Lagos have got this mentality where it’s MAC/IMAN or nothing else. Ladies there are A LOT of other amazing affordable and high-end brands out there. It’s up to you to explore them. Mac and Iman are sold in Lagos, but that’s for another post, today is all about SLEEK MAKEUP.

There are a number of Sleek Makeup distributors scattered around Lagos, from the Mainland to the Island. On the Island (which is where I live) I know of 3stores, one in Ikoyi, the head office in V/I and another in Ikota (VGC). If you live on the island and are after some Sleek Makeup, I suggest you head to the Ikoyi store, which is the one I go to (Address, as always, at the end of this post). They do sell makeup in the V/I store, but I noticed they’ve got a larger selection of their Sleek Hair Extensions/Weaves, than makeup.

I love the way the interior of the store is done up!

This past weekend I ‘dragged’ a couple of my girls with me to the store and they ALL bought something! ^_^.

They have a pretty good stock of merchandise in there (most of their stuff are in cupboards underneath the display). Although, they don’t get the new releases as soon as they are out in the UK. I remember when I was after their Primer Palette it wasn’t in the store until a few weeks after it was released.

They also have an area where you can test out the products or find your colour match to their variety of foundations and powders

Here’s what I bought from the store.

Been after the ‘Oh So Special’ Eyeshadow Palette, they’ve had it in the store for ages, but after purchasing the Urban Decay ‘Naked’ palette I forgot about it…. But now I’ve got it :). If you like Nude Colours, this is the palette for you,

Sorry about the horrible picture here, couldn’t quite balance the ‘flash’ and ‘focus’ on my camera, still learning 🙂

I got this gorgeous purple lipstick called Amethyst. Plan on wearing it at my birthday dinner next weekend! They applied the colour to my lips and it’s an amazing shade. My girl, Shamzz, even had to get one after she saw it on me!

Here’s all the Sleek Makeup I’ve got so far. I LOVE their eyeshadow palettes (as you can see..lol), the colours are so pigmented and last a long time. I’ve got the ‘Original’ ‘Storm’ ‘Oh So Special’ and ‘Primer’ Palettes. If you have got oily lids I suggest you use a primer. Their primer palette is quite good ;).

I’ve also got their New Skin Revive Founation. Seen a lot of positive reviews of this. Even Shirley’s got it listed as one of her favourite liquid foundations. Haven’t actually got round to using this yet, would let you know how I get on in another post.

Here’s a table of some item prices at the Sleek Makeup store in Ikoyi
