All the swatches below are done in 3 parts: The first is on bare skin, the second over Nyx HD Eyeshadow base and the third applied wet using MAC Fix+ as mixing medium.
Except for So Sleek (pink) all the Sleek pigments are very grainy. This texture makes them tricky to blend sometimes and fall out is mostly a given. So remember to keep this in mind when doing a colour heavy eye makeup look. Applying the pigments wet does help to lessen the fall out problem.
All these pigments were bought from Foschini in Somerset Mall
A beautiful gold pigment. Not as yellow as Sugarpill’s Goldilux.
It’s quite a grainy pigment, I had to remove the shifter in my container as it didn’t allow enough product through. Despite this it blends out smoothly.
A dark/tarnished gold pigment. A really gorgeous and versatile shade.
A dark dusty pink pigment. Slightly finer texture than some of the other pigments and blends very well.
An aquamarine pigment with a similar texture to Fantasy.
A black shimmer pigment. Due to the shimmer this is more like a very dark charcoal. But there’s also Drama (a matte black pigment) and Outrage (black with a silver sparkle), unfortunately I don’t have either of these pigments, but they’re better options if you’re looking for a more solid black pigment.
A stunning blue black pigment. In real life it appears even darker than in the photo but the blue shimmer shows up great in photos.
A candy pink. This is the finest textured of the Sleek pigments. This pigment works best over a primer and unlike the Essence – Miss Piggy’s Lollipop pigment, it doesn’t stain when applied wet.
