Swatches : Sleek Graphite Palette

I bought the Sleek Graphite palette from Leanne-Marie's blog sale an absolute age ago and totally forgot to blog about it! I instantly fell in love with this palette and it is now my 'go to' palette for a night on the pop.


The packaging is what you would expect from Sleek, the only downside with their packaging for me is that you can't see the colours at a glance, I often end up trawling through all my Sleek palettes looking for 'the one'.



The palette contains 12 colours, for me this palette is all that I need to create a nice smoky eye. All the shades are very pigmented and easy to work with.

Even just looking at these swatches excites me - such beautiful colours! I often get compliments when wearing the shades from this palette.


What is your go to night out palette? Do you like a smoky eye?

  2. Graphite is my absolute favourite Sleek palette! I definitely love a smokey eye for a night, that or some simple black winged liner and a bright lip! x

  3. This is such a good mixture of colours - especially for a smoky eye. I've always stuck to my Elf palette, but I find them a bit stubborn to blend, so I'll look more into these!

  5. Ooh I've never seen this palette, it's perfect for a smokey eye! I might have to pick one up, I like all my eyeshadows for a certain look to be in one palette so I'm not fussing about, and I don't have one for a smokey eye yet!

    1. I'm not sure how readily available it is now as I think it was a limited edition, worth keeping an eye on blog sales though :) x

  6. Wow the colour selection is gorgeous, I only own one Sleek palette and don't usually find myself looking at them each time I'm in Superdrug. However I think I need to keep an eye out for this one. This is fab for a smokey eye on a night out :)

  8. The palette looks great, I haven't tried any of sleek yet, I want the palette of three blushers but it's not in my store.
    By your review I may give the eyeshadows a go!
