Review | Sleek face form kit (light)

This is a product I've wanted to get my hands on for a long time, this product was previously known as the sleek "contour kit" but it had a bit of a revamp and is now the sleek "face form" kit, as it now includes a blush in the shade rose gold (dupe for nars orgasm) this kit retails at £9.99 from superdrug, which is amazing when you think that you're getting a bronzer, highlighter and blush in a snazzy little compact, with a huge mirror? brilliant! I always get a little giddy over the sleek packaging, the matte black finish with glossy writing? simple and right up my street!

Last year, I purchased the Nars laguna bronzer/orgasm blush duo in a gift set which cost £35 and I find it SO hard to use because the compact is extremely tiny and I find it hard to get a brush to fit into the pans... definitely not the problem with this though! the pan sizes are quite large, so they're easy to access, I will be getting a lot more use of this kit than the nars one, that's for sure. one thing I love about this product is the fact that the bronzer is completely matte, which I think is difficult to find in highstreet/drugstore bronzers as they're usually packed with glitter... if you're going to contour, don't use a bronzer with glitter in as we wan't to create the illusion of a shadow... glitter doesn't do that! also, I find that highstreet bronzer are very orange and not very flattering at all, whereas this is a nice medium brown, which doesn't make your face look dirty, or orange in the slightest.
now... where do I even start with the highlighter? it's a beautiful champagne colour with finely milled silver glitter running through it, I'm not a fan of overly glowy faces, and I was worried that this highlighter was going to make me look greasy and shiny, like other highlights i've tried but I found that this one wasn't over powering at all and just gave the skin a healthy, comfortable sheen and i'm so in love with it! I've never tried a highlighter this good! All three are extremely pigmented, blend easily and compliment each other fantastically. and of course the rose gold blush is a beautiful colour which I think would suit most skin tones.

If you're on a budget, or want a great little kit that's perfect for travelling I suggest giving this a whirl, I'm going away for a week on the 22nd June and these will be the only bronzer/highlight/blush coming along with me to help save room, and due to the fact it's a brilliant product! I'm going to pick up a few more products from sleek, maybe an eyeshadow palette? I'm looking forward to trying more from this brand.

What's your favourite sleek product, any recommendations?
