Did anyone say iridescent? Well, believe your eyes, Sleek Makeup has brought out yet another killer highlighter palette, and it comes with some friends. The Distorted Dreams collection carries all the holo vibes.
The Distorted Dreams highlighting palette has five stunning shades brimming with reflective holographic pigments that can be used all over the face. It’s a combination of 3 creams and 2 powders that are gorgeous on their own but really come to life when layered.
The creams have a beautiful colour colour shift and opalescence in pink (Anodise), blue (Beam) and green (Refracted). The powders are a quite shimmery, a cool pink with some glittery particles (Blurred Lights) and a tanned gold (Sweet Delusion).
What I have been using the most is the pink cream and either one of the powders on top for face highlighting. The blue and green are great for eyes (especially as a base) and over lipstick, especially over black (both), blue and purple (blue cream).
I know for a fact these creams will form a base for my festival makeup this year!
The hashtag GlazedAF could not be more appropriate and only a cool AF brand like Sleek could put it out there.
The “glazing” is serious but not ridiculous. Although highly pigmented and very shimmery, there is no excess glitter, so basically it looks look someone planted a beam of light under your skin. It really pulls the light in.
Be mindful that if using alone, the creams and will need translucent powder to set for better durability.
The Matte Me Metallic Matte Smooth Lip Cream liquid lipsticks are quite amazing – a bit of molten metal for the lips. Sadly, alone, none do much for my complexion, but they are amazing to layer on lipstick, especially at the centre of the mouth!
They have great pigmentation and consistency and they dry Matte, but retaining that metallic, luminous finish. Durability is excellent.
And there are three shades to choose from: Roman Copper, a warm and deep rusty copper, Rusted Rose, an intense muted pink with purple undertones (Carol really likes this one) and Volcanic, my fave, with that slight beetle wing colour shift between light pink and subtle green. So pretty!
The collection is already available at Superdrug – YAY. The Distorted Dreams Highlighting palette costs £10.99 and each of the new Matte Me Metallic Matte Smooth Lip Cream cost £4.99.
