Sleek bloggers event, summer releases and a competition

Sleek make up hosted a bloggers event yesterday at All star lanes bowling alley, which I was lucky enough to be invited to.

Me and Ling made our way across London together, where we met up with another group of bloggers, and made our way to the venue together.

At the event, we were able to have a play with some of the current range, as well as new products, that will be released for the summer.

We were then shown how to make various cosmetics (including a lipstick, lipgloss and eye dust) followed by a make up demonstration and personalised foundation matching.

I have to say I was very impressed that they allowed each of us to get foundation matched, because I find it so hard to pick the right shade, and credit to the make up artist for doing it under such artificial lighting!

At the end there was also a bowl off (which I was rubbish at), with the chance to win some fantastic prizes. Amongst the fun, there were many broken nails, but well done to Sophie, who won a trip to New York with her amazing bowling skills.

So moving onto the new products. This summer they will be releasing 2 new pout polishes, a new limited edition circus palette and some new nail varnishes. We were also given a range of make up brushes, which will soon be available online.

Thank you so much to Sleek for organising the event, and to all the other bloggers who were so lovely and friendly. Sorry if I was a bit quiet, I know I can get quite shy sometimes but it was lovely to meet you all.

Sleek will also be running a competition, to name the shades in their idivine palettes. Blogs were choosen at random to host this competition, and I wasn't one of the lucky ones, but do look out for the competition on other blogs.

  11. Vexinthecity- Lol, it was indeed me. Well done on the bowling x

    Pyxiee- It was surprisingly simple, mixture of waxes, pigments, vitamin E and some other ingredients. They they heated it up, mixed it and poured it into the casing to set, before popping it into a lipstick holder x

    Marce- Thanks lovely, it was a lot of fun so well done to Sleek x
