Sleek Circus eyeshadow palette swatches and review

Some time ago I won this palette over at Karla Sugar website and now I have a review and photos for you.

The packaging, it is smooth and print looks stylish but it is stil plastic and when you'll have the palette in your hands, it will feel a little bit cheap.....well but it's worth the price.

Circus palette consits of 12 colourful eyeshadows and one applicator. Now I don't know how you feel about foam applicators in the palettes but I don't like them! I like proper eyeshadow brushes. Finish of the eyeshadow varies from shimmer to matte and eyeshadows are differently pigmented. Most of them are pigmented really good except the white and lime green shades. I tried to make a look using this palette but it did not come up as good as I wanted so I'm not gonna post it. What is important - I didn't find these shadows easy to use :-/ When I blend them the colour faded a lot so I ended up adding more an more colour. I would expect much more because the colours looked more pigmented in swatches.

So overally I would not repurchase and I do not plan to buy any other Sleek eyeshadow palette. I was dissapointed with this one.


  1. I have three sleek palettes and I love them. They are very pigmented and vibrant. But this one doesn't seem that good :s

  2. I have four Sleek palettes, I really like the graphite one and always bring them with me on holidays...except I hardly ever wear makeup these days hahaha^^

  3. Daniela, Chocaddict: Maybe only this one is so bad, I'm not saying all of them are :) but I'm lad you have the good ones :)

  4. I'm sorry you didn't like this palette, but would you consider selling it to me? I just want this palette so bad!
