I just realized I've never mentioned Sleek on my blog! I don't even have a tag for them until today. I am absolutely OBSESSED with Sleek makeup! It's the one makeup line that I regularly moan and groan about because it's not available in the states. Thanks to some lucky ebay shopping and a very kind international blogger who swapped with me, I now have a handful of Sleek eyeshadow palettes and one blush! I am crazy about the Sleek eyeshadow formulation. Although they are very soft (and prone to breaking during shipping across the pond) they are very pigmented and apply well. I especially love their mattes! No one does mattes like Sleek, except Inglot perhaps!
This Au Naturel palette is very different from all my other 'nude' palettes. While the other palettes tend to focus on wearable browns, the Au Naturel palette delves into unusual colors like light coppery peach, olive, burgundy, camel and light matte taupe.
Let's check out the swatches!

Sleek gives us a variety of textures to play with here, from mattes to satins to shimmers. I just love the variety here. Like the NYX Butt Naked Eyes palette, they've also been quite nice and given us a couple matte highlight shades! I seem to always look at palettes and go 'eh, it's nice, but why is there no matte highlight??' They also include their standard highly pigmented matte black, which is infinitely useful. You can use it to darken up your outer V or as a liner.
I think this palette would be great for someone with green or brown eyes. The mixture of colors seems like it would play well with those eye colors. This palette is fantastic, and if you can get your hands on it I completely recommend it! This might just be my favorite of all the 'nude' palettes I have.
Stay tuned, more nudity on the way! Hee hee.
