“Avoir La Pêche” Sleek Makeup Collection


"Avoir la pêche": French expression which you're likely to hear again in the beauty blogosphere.  Literally it means 'to have a/the peach'. Used as an expression it means 'to feel great, perky, happy, bouncy, in top shape, tickety boo, like a happy bunny etc'. Also the name for the latest Sleekmakeup makeup collection released a few days ago in selected Superdrug stores. The collection boasts a juicy lip product (a SPF 15 pout polish) a blusher and a eyeshadow palette named after a variety of Chinese flat peach, the Paraguaya.


Do i like peachy/corally tones on my eyes? Do they even suit me? I don't know but I am intrigued and I can't wait to dip my fat fingers in the tester of the paraguaya palette at my nearest Superdrug and have a little swatch. I am slightly disappointed they didn't release a few nail polishes in there but overall, this collection excites me. I am all  for bright colours and I want to see how much they 'give me the peach' and brighten my mood :)

I picked up the palette but the blushes aren't out in my local Superdrug yet. The palette is lovely - the neutrals are really nice!

I may have to break project 10 pan for the blush :S Love peaches but it's hard to find nice peach blushes which aren't too pinky.

Ooh c'est joli! J'aimerais bien que les ombres à paupière claires (les 6 du bas) soient mattes, parce que elles sont toujours irisées dans les palettes Sleek alors un petit changement serait le bienvenu!
On peut acheter Sleek à Séphora maintenant, j'ai acheté la Bad Girl il y a un mois. Il y avait plein de stock!

I love the look of the blush and pout polish!
I'm on a no buy and have a bit of a hate for Sleek but they do look gorgeous! x

I can't say that palette interests me much. I really think pastel peachy tones look awful on my eyes (although I do like peach pink blushes). But I do like to wear vivid orange. I think the palette wouldn't do anything for me though /sigh I wouldn't buy it for one orange shadow.

they look gorgeous! I love Sleek blushes, pout polishes and palettes, so I can see me picking the whole collection up.

I do wish Sleek would do full collections though - lipsticks, glosses, etc.
