U.K. Brand Sleek Makeup Launches at Ulta – Allure Magazine
Based on my most played artist on Spotify (hello, Harry Styles) it’s safe to say I love a good British import. Thanks to Ulta, we can all now add more products from across the pond into our beauty routines, like the colorful Lottie London and Model’s Own, a.k.a. Hailey Baldwin’s fave. Next up on their British-brand roster is Sleek Makeup. This fast-growing U.K. cosmetics company is making its stateside debut at ulta.com today.
Right now, you can browse (and add to your digital cart, of course) 23 of Sleek Makeup’s most popular palettes. I am most excited about the Contour Kit, which some of my favorite British MUAs have been raving about since 2009. No matter what your skin tone is, you’re sure to find your perfect sculpting shade because the $15.99 palette is available in three color combos — even those with deep skin tones who have a hard time finding a flattering contouring kit due to the frustratingly narrow shade ranges that many companies offer. (Fortunately, that theme flows through most of Sleek Makeup products. Even its blush palettes are made with an inclusive range of complexions in mind.) Plus, each palette includes six different hues in a cream formula that you can use on their own or mix together.
Oh yeah, and I’m obsessed with the Highlighting Palette in Solstice. (You can peep it in the center of the picture above.) In addition to three intensely pigmented shimmery powders, the quad also comes with a rose gold cream illuminator. On its own, it gives skin a dewy finish that will help disguise sweat once temps start rising. However, I like to use it as an intensifying primer for the yellow gold, peach, and petal pink highlighters. The combo will make your cheekbones visible from a galaxy where aliens definitely exist and appreciate your glow. Like the Contour Kit, this palette is affordable, too, priced at just $14.99.
You’ll also love the seven eye shadow palettes that will also be available. In case you can’t tell, I am having a very hard time picking a favorite because all of the matte and metallic shadows are so damn gorgeous.
Next month, starting on July 1, you’ll be able to shop everything from Sleek Makeup on ulta.com, sleekmakeup.com, and walgreens.com. So if you’ve been dying to try one of Sleek Makeup’s lipsticks like the Major Matte Lip Cream (a liquid lipstick), your time is just around the corner.
