Sleek Saturday 4: Au Naturel for Autumn





The latest Sleek palette launched last week, and despite promising myself I wasn't going to buy any more....I bought it. I'm back in my comfort zone with this week's Sleek Saturday, the palette in question is the Au Naturel palette from the Nude collection, which features a range of neutral matte and shimmer shades. I've read a few reviews which didn't really rate the lighter matte shades, but have used them all this week and didn't think they were bad at all. The colour payoff was pretty decent over a good base, and the darker shades have great pigmentation, especially Regal - which is like MAC Sketch but twice as good. I'll be using that colour a lot.

  4. ooooh I adore this look! I saw the palette when I was in England but I didn't buy it because they didn't have a tester one so I couldn't see what the shades all looked like exactly. pff.

    Anyway, Liloo told me you're continuing the sleek saturday and I was wondering if I could take part again next week as well? I may only have two palettes and I've done them already but I feel I should do Sunset again as I don't use it to its full potential :) xx
