Lou's Reviews :: Sleek PPQ Me, Myself & Eye Palette


Aloha Bloggerinos,

Yep, as with all my posts for the next few days, I'm pretty late on this one. Florida and family life prevented me being as on the ball as I (like to think) usually am.

So without further ado, here is the latest Sleek MakeUp eyeshadow palette, just waiting to be added to your collection. Does anyone else collect the palettes?


Sleek's Me, Myself and Eye Palette is said to be inspired by PPQ's S/S11 collection and aims to toughen up a soft feminine silhouette- oh lala.


With a mixture of frost and matte and a wide variety of colours, you would think this would be a winner. For me it isn't. I'm all for lots of colour if it works, like in the original palette, but this seems all a little haphazard. Mint, red, peach and olive all in a row for example, there isn't a happy flow there, in my eyes anyway.

Also, (haha as if I hadn't finished being negative!), matte colours aren't my bag. I'm all for a bit of shimmer and I find matte colours can be pretty chalky with poor pigmentation. Saying that, there will be people out there in the big wide world, who prefer matte shades, so who am I to talk?



Some shmexy swatching for you there m'dears. I think the bottom deep green colour will look beautiful for Christmas.

Apologies for not going into too much detail for this beauty review, but I don't want to rave about something that doesn't float my boat and I'm not in the business of full on slating products. Beauty is only an opinion after all.

  3. I don't think this pallet would be my cup of tea either but I do love the dark purple. I'm a bigger fan of shimmer eyeshadows too so I would probably not purchase this either. Great review Louise, it's gave me an insight into what the product is like and your honest opinion on it is great. Keep up the good work I love your blog :) x

  10. I just bought one of those massive super dooper cheap palettes off ebay, by a company called fraulein. Really worth a £12 something I paid for it. There are plenty of really wearable colours with good colour pay off!

    A lot of the colours in this Sleek palette look very pretty but aren't actually overly wearable!

    Love your blogs and videos Louise! You must be super hard working to balance everything you do!
