Sleek Monaco palette review & swatches

So finally I had time to write a review about Monaco palette by Sleek. I ordered it from ebay about a month ago, but about 2 weeks ago I sold it, because I did not really see myself using those colors. Yes, the pigmentation was great, but the palette was not just for me. At the same time I bought Oh So Special palette too, you can see that review here: 
This is limited edition palette and it is part of Mediterranean Collection.

About the shades:
4 metallics: Sunset, Kiwi zest, Lotus Flower, Humming Bird. Really nice pigmentation, but delicate texture, so you have to be careful when using them.
8 matte shades: Only problematic shade is bamboo, which does not show up too well. 
Shadows go on smooth and they are easy to blend, they have no fallout. 
Texture is really buttery and nice, especially for metallics.

Just comparison:
Where to get it?
Superdrugs- UK only. I did not find this product online, maybe in some stores you can still find it.
Sleek makeup: nope, sold out already.

Would you wear these colors? Do you like this palette?

Thank you for reading!


  1. I like it a lot, along with the other Sleek palettes. Some of the colors (Kiwi Zest, Aquamarine, Humming Bird) remind me MAC regular line shades.

    The Oh So Special palette was a bit of a disappointment, though.

  2. I think bamboo would be perfect for browbone and for blending the crease up from browbone. It seems to melt into the natural skintone.
    Very good photos - nicely vibrant :)
