The ultimate holiday face trio - Sleek MakeUp Face Form Palette

It's that time of year. The weather is (finally) improving if you're in the UK; the sun has started to have that tiny tinge of warmth when it shows its face; and thoughts turn to sunnier climes. And obviously, first and foremost, what to pack in that holiday makeup bag, yes? The Sleek MakeUp Face Form Contouring & Blush Palette is definitely a little high street gem to consider.

Sleek makeup have generally been causing a fuss (in a good way) on the high street in the past few years, with good reason. The powders particularly quality products at complete bargain prices, and this little beauty is no exception. I have the kit in light, which comprises a smooth, matte, cool-ish brown contour, a champagne-toned highlight, and a rosy pink blush shot through with a golden shimmer.

Bear in mind in those swatches that I've been living in the tropics for a few months - I'm approximately equating to an olive-toned MAC NC40 at the moment, though usually I'm NC 20-25! These are also one-swipe swatches - excellent pigmentation from Sleek, as usual. They have also created 4 different colourways of this palette, ranging from fair to deep, so this will cater for most skin tones (hurrah!)
 The contour shade is subtle, smooth, and easier to blend than many of its more expensive contemporaries. I'm not a haute-contourer, but this is a very nice, believeable option.
The rosy, pink-gold blush is pretty shiny, and the almost metallic sheen increases with buffing in to the skin - incredibly flattering with a tan, but you may not need to use the highlight on top! It lasts for 3-4 hours on my oily skin in high humidity.
The highlight is STRONG. See-you-from-space strong. And a little glittery for my usual taste.. but on holiday, anything goes, right?! It has a really nice, fine texture and again blends like a dream. No complaints here. 

Altogether, this travel friendly trio is all the cheeks you need for a week in the sun. Whoever thought of this was a genius. And for £9.99? I'll just leave this here.
