Tried Tuesday: Sleek Eye Dust – Vintage

tt-sleek-thI have previously written in a Tried Tuesday post that I have a love/hate relationship with pigment eyeshadows. They can be scary, but they can also work wonders. I am getting better with using them, and have a purple one from Inglot that I really love, so, having received this one in last months Chic Treat Club box, I was looking forward to trying it out. So, just how did I get on with Vintage, from the Sleek Eye Dust range.


One thing I have noticed with the Sleek pigments is that they tend to look very clumpy in the tub, and this one is no exception. In the tub this looks very grainy and lumpy, however it does apply very smooth. The colour seen here is also nothing like what it applies as. It is in fact a lovely golden colour, that of, well, vintage, jewellery.



Seen here, actually swatched, it is a gorgeous colour, especially when light hits it. It really does sing in the right light. The issue is though, just how do you wear it? I certainly couldn’t get away with using this during the day (bravo to you if you have the confidence to pull it off) unless it was done really lightly over a neutral to add a little bit of subtle sparkle to it. However, for a night time party eye, there are possibilities…


I embarked on a quick hunt for other metallic shadows. It was very quick, really, leading me straight under my desk to my palette box and on to my Naked 2 palette, which handily contains a variety of copper and bronze shades. I also have a silver Rimmel Scandaleyes liner, which is included.

If you’re looking to really emphasise your eyes, I certainly think there is a mix in here to work with, anchored of course by the pigment. I will have to play around with a few looks to see what really works, but to wear Vintage, I would be working with most of these colours too.

What I really want to know in the comments now though, is how would you use this? Please do let me know!
