SleekMakeUp Avoir La Peche Collection

With the sun shining in central London and with the clocks changing to British Summer time I feel like it is the perfect time to talk about brighter colours and the new Sleek Avoir La Peche Collection.
The Collection which is only available until the 13th April includes:
The Paraguaya i-Divine eyeshadow palette
Sugar May Pout Polish 
Pan-Tao Blush 

I received the Paraguaya i-Divine eyeshadow palette yesterday and was very excited to try it out! 
 'The new Avoir la Peche Collection is everything you will need to be on trend for this spring. Inspired by peaches from all over the world, the collection celebrates the variety of hues that will see you well into the warmer months of 2011. The Paraguya i-Divine 12 piece eyeshadow palette is filled to the brim with warm browns, cool corals and powdery pinks-perfect for inspired looks such as Valentino's S/S11 Trend.'
 Just like all the more recent palettes each eyeshadow has been given a name, it comes with a standard applicator and in the normal sleek packaging with the name of the collection across the front.
 The colours are a range of oranges, corals and a few greys and browns.I don't think it will be a palette I use a lot but it is quite inspiring and I may use a few shades from this palette mixed with more neutral colours.
The pigmentation and quality of the colours are as fantastic as usual however there are two colours Bellini and Sandstone which do lack pigmentation. I also found Bellini to be far harder to work with then the other colours.

I would love to have the orange/coral shades in the palette in larger blusher forms and think making blusher palettes would be a good step for SleekMakeUp. I will be trying to use a few of these as blushers even if the pan is quite small.

I really want the Pan-Tao blush and will be purchasing it over the next few days and will be sure to do a review once I have it. I do think I will leave this palette to the side until June/July when I have a bit more of a tan and can pull of these sort of colours.

Palettes retail for £6.49 from Superdrugs and online here.

What do you think of this collection? Do you think SleekMakeUp should sell some blush palettes too?

  5. These colors are beautifull, but I'm no sure how often I would wear them. I would love to see Sleek with a blush palette.

  6. The palette looks great!. defiantly want to get my hands on it! x

  7. ooh yaaaay , i saw it last week and was wondering why no one has blogged about it yet . great review xoxo

  8. Did you know avoir la peche means "having fishing" ? I don't think sleek put much research into the name
