a touch of tangerine

With the weather as changeable as ever, here is your chance to bring a little bit of guaranteed sunshine to your makeup bag. Sleek Makeup have launched a limited edition Caribbean collection combining 1970's beauty and bold brights for a paradisiacal palette to encapsulate that holiday feeling! 
The collection follows suit and offers three key products; a palette, a pout polish and a blush.
The Curaçao i-divine palette (£6.49) combines a cocktail of bright pinks, ocean blues and zesty yellows for a really vivid, highly-pigmented eye look.  


Bonaire Pout Polish (£4.29) is a heavenly-scented lip balm enriched with Jojoba, Avocado and Sweet Almond Oil, as well as having SPF 15 protection. I am in love with the fruity smell of this pout polish which whisks you off to a tropical escape, piña colada in hand.



I am not sure I would wear this lip balm on its own as it requires a lot of application to achieve a true tangerine hue. I think it would work best worn over another lipstick, such as MAC's Morange for a more intense, glossy finish. That said, I love the way this pout polish applies, and leaves my lips feeling conditioned and soft.

Aruba Blush (4.29) is certainly a blush for the brave! It offers a rich, unashamed bright orange powder for a tropical touch to your cheeks. Sleek describes Aruba as a cheeky coral...but it is most definitely orange! I know I would be too fearful to wear this shade but I do think it would work well on darker skin tones for a more subtle finish.


The Caribbean collection launched this week, but is only available for a limited time only, from Superdrug stores nationwide and Sleek Makeup online.


This season, are you tantalised by tangerine?

The polish looks really good against your skin tone, wish I could rock the blush but I don't think it will go well with ginger hair lol! x

Wow I don't think I would be brave enough to wear that blush! The pout polish looks like it might be interesting though...

lip balm is goooorrrgee, but not sure on the blush, but i think your right on someone with dark or black skin it might create a nice corally glow rather than a massive orange streak like it would on caucasian skin!! lol

The lip balm looks amazing but the blush may be a bit too much for me lol but it would look awesome on someone who could pull it off!

I think the blush would look nice with a very light hand? Would love to see it on you! I have the bright pink blush that recently came out (too lazy to have a look) I think it's the Santorini one? Anyway you need a light brushing of that too or it makes you look like a clown! Really want to try a polish! x

The lip polish looks great! I almost would like to wear that on my cheeks rather than the blush. I tend to like more dewy cream blushes, I wish they made one with that color! Great review :)

Wow, certainly bright for summer!
I like the look of the polish, but would worry I'd look a little oompa loompa with the blush. ;)

SLEEK are amazing!! x

Catherine said...

That looks amazing on you! I'm tempted to try that, but I'd need to flesh-out my lips first to tone down how red they are. Thank you for sharing this - I probably wouldn't have tried it otherwise x

I'm starting to really feel the orange trend as of late! I think I'll have to take a trip to Superdrug at some point over the next few days and take a look at the collection. I love the Pout Polish! It's such a gorgeous colour & would definitely brighten up any make up look & outfit!!
