Hello everyone,

This is a very famous n handy palette by sleek which contains all three face essentials such as blush , highlighter and a bronzer. It comes in several shades n I chose fair according to my complexion.. It also comes in light, medium n dark..

How To Use:


Step One:
  • Prep your skin ensuring face and neck are clean and dry.
  • Step Two:
  • Apply foundation of choice to create a smooth and even complexion.
  • Step Three:
  • To achieve great cheek definition, using a small contour brush, apply the contour powder, starting from the ear and gently blending torwards the direction of your mouth, building definition as desired and blending as you to go, to ensure all lines are soft.
  • Step Four:
  • For Face Form in Fair/Light apply blush to apples of cheeks using contour brush or blush brush, ensuring you blend as you go, erasing all hard lines.
  • For Face Form in Medium/Dark apply bronzer to cheeks, nose, forehead and chin sparingly to add that sunkissed look.
  • Step Five:
  • Finally, apply the highlighter lightly to the apples of the cheeks for a highlighted contour creating soft, yet defined and sculpted cheekbones.

  • Packaging:



    Comes in standard black matte casing similar to that of other Sleek products , it's actually very sleek and classy palette containing three different items, a countour powder which is a light brown bronzer, a highlighter n a blush.. The brand name is embossed in glossy writing on the top of the case, the flip cover of the palette contains a decent sized mirror all over the cover which I find very useful n big enough to use.. It's very travel friendly n compact to use n carry.. There is no brush provided in the palette which I actually don't mind as I prefer using my own brushes.

    My Take On The Product:


    Much like the contour kit, the Face Form palette includes both a contour and a highlight shade. However, there’s also the addition of a blush or a bronzer depending on which shade you opt for.

    There are four shades available – Fair, Light, Medium and Dark. 
    The two palettes for lighter skin tones include Sleeks infamous Rose Gold blush whilst the Medium and Dark palettes include a shimmery bronzer.
    It's basically a dupe for Nars Orgasm. I will compare nars orgasm n sleeps rose gold soon ..
    Let's study the shades closely,

    Countering Powder:


    This is a very good countering shade for fair to medium skin tones, it's neither very dark nor light. It does not contain any orange undertones unlike other countering shades. It's a total matte powder n isn't chalky too. 
    It creates perfect shadow look to Accenture your cheeks n give a look of deeply set hallows of your cheek.. It's highly pigmented so b very light handed.. 
    I sweep them lightly in the hallows of my cheeks n then blend them perfectly .. Blending is the key to the perfect look if not the partitions n sharp edges of the countering powder n blush may make u look ugly .. Overall very good shade as I personally don't like dark powders to steal my fairness :p

    Blush In Rose Gold:


    This was like one of my dream blush.. It's highly raved n loved product by makeup bloggers n mua for creating that high end look with a drugstore product.
    It's mostly said to b an dupe for Nars Organsm which I may compare later. It's a beautiful coral brush with golden shimmer in it.. 
    It looks gorgeous on brides n trust me when I used it for the first time I could not see any application of blush.. It made my look so natural as if I had that tint on my cheeks, it blends so naturally into my cheeks n gives a flawless look. 
    The shimmer is so subtle that it only adds a beautiful golden glow n u don't need any highlighter on your cheeks after this blush.
    This is my favourite thing in the whole palette.. M going mad over this.. Amazingggg product. Must must have. 
    This blush is also available in singles too. So if u don't want the countering kit u can buy this alone. It may cost u around 7$

    Highlighter:


    Highlighter is perfect for fair skin with. It's a beautiful champagne shade that works really well with my skin tone. Its very finely milled and pigmented too so it gives my skin a lovely ‘lit from within’ type glow instead of it being too shimmery or glittery.
    There is shimmer in it but not glittery. The shimmer is very subtle. Looks great after blending it . Apply it to the top of your cheek bones above your blush. It gives a nice healthy glow. 




    My take on the palette: 

    Amazing, awesomely pigmented, long lasting n absolutely perfect kit for countering n travel friendly. 
    Multi purpose palette.

    Cons: None

    Will I purchase again:

    If at all I loose my palette I might otherwise I don't need to as they will last very long. N I wud definitely try more shades from the range..

    Rating: 5/5
