Sleek Face Form Kit | Light | £9.99 | Buy Here
So I eventually gave in and bought the Sleek Face Form Kit in Light when Superdrug had their 3 for 2 deal across all make up on.. and I'm so glad I bought it. I knew I wanted their infamous contour kit as well as their rose gold blush, so I was planning on buying them separately until I came across this little beauty! Now, my Superdrug literally has hardly anything in stock - it seems to fly out the store as soon as it comes in and they never have tester palettes out. This put me in an awkward position because it meant I had to guess which kit to get by going off photos and swatches on the internet. There are four different kits; the fair and light kits have the contour powder, highlight and rose gold blush and the medium and dark ones have a bronzer instead. I was torn between light and medium but finally settled on light because the blush really did it for me!
In terms of the packaging, like all Sleek products this came in an elegant black case with the logo on the top. It has the trademark huge Sleek mirror, which is always useful in a compact! The only peeve I have about the packaging is that although it looks gorgeous when it's brand new - after about a week in my makeup bag it is literally covered in scuffs and fingerprints since everything shows up on the matte black :(
For me the contour powder is slightly too light, and I could have really done with a shade darker for more pronounced contouring. That being said, I can still use it as it is very easy to build up to a darker shade without having the problem of going overboard! This matte brown powder is very easy to blend out so you're not left with dirty brown streaks everywhere which was my biggest contouring fear.
The highlight is my absolute favourite thing in the whole kit, which is surprising since I was so excited about the other two powders. It's a stunning highlighter with a slight peachy pink tint to it, so it will work really well on every skin tone without being too bright. It's so versatile - one swipe can give you a subtle glow during the day but this can be built up for evenings out.
And finally is the rose gold blusher.. a well known dupe for NARS Orgasm and my favourite colour. I'd been eyeing up this blusher for a very long time, so the fact that it came in this kit was a huge plus for me. Like all Sleek products, it's very pigmented so trust me when I say a little goes a long way! The colour is stunning on the cheeks - it's a beautiful multi tonal colour with lots of gold specks which catch the light.
All in all, I'm very happy with this purchase as all three products compliment each other perfectly and it's really great value for money since the powders are so pigmented - I can't see myself hitting pan anytime soon! The only thing I would advise you to do before buying, is swatch the colours in store if you can because it's quite hard to tell from online photos alone. If you're darker than NC35 I would suggest going for medium or dark.
