Sleek Make Up Paraguaya Eyeshadow Palette Review

I really like Sleek Make Up eyeshadow palettes (see my video review here) and when I saw there was a new limited edition palette out, I bought it immediately. It's called Paraguaya and it's part of Sleek's spring collection called Avoir le Peche that also includes a blush and pout polish.


As usual, the palette comes in a cardboard sleeve which is really pretty with pink/peach flowers and letters. Inside the palette is the usual black sleek palette with the words Sleek Make Up written across it. Inside you get 12 eyeshadows, a double ended applicator and a full sized mirror. The palette costs £6.49 and is available from Superdrug and Sleek's website.

Read more of my review and see lots more pictures and swatches after the jump!

I wasn't too sure whether I wanted this palette at first because I thought it would be too similar to the Good Girl palette (included in my video review), but that's not at all the case. Good Girl palette was a collection of pinks, whereas Paraguaya has more peach and orange colours, plus some browns too (which look grey in my photos for some reason, sorry). It has quite a few mattes, but the eyeshadows are all really smooth and pigmented, the matte ones lovely quality too.

I think it's another palette worth buying from Sleek Make Up, you get an extremely good value for your money. Although the palettes have now gone up to £6.49 (I'm sure they used to cost £4.99 not long ago), you still only pay just over 50p per eyeshadow, which compared to Mac's single eyeshadows at £9.50 is still a bargain.

Right, finally here are the photos. Let me know if you've got this palette too or whether you're tempted!

  2. I actually ordered this palette online. Still waiting to receive it. I can't wait. I love the Sleek palettes. The only harsh thing about ordering online is the shipping charge. I find myself rushing to order from Sleek each time they have a new release. First it was the Valentine's Day Blush, then the Primer palette and now the Paraguaya palette. I heard in September there will be a Sleek palette exclusive to Sephora UK.
