SLEEK Au Naturel Eyeshadow Palette Review

 It took me a while but I finally caved and bought a Sleek palette. And then I bought six more haha.
I'll get to those soon but right now I'm reviewing the Au Naturel palette, as it's probably the most used.

All Sleek palettes come with 12 colors and a spongetip applicator. Au Naturel has very neutral colors in it and most of them are really pigmented while some of them apply well with  a brush and swatch horribly (as seen in photos below).

NOUGAT is a matte white, a bit powdery but nicely pigmented.

NUBUCK is a matte light grey. One of those that apply better with a brush. Very useful  for blending out darker colors.

CAPPUCCINO a matte light taupe. Again - applies better with a brush, otherwise the pigmentation is great.

HONEY COMB a very, very light peachy nude.

TOAST is a peachy matte nude. A very basic shade, great for all over the lid with a darker color in the crease.

TAUPE is not taupe at all (in my opinion). Just a basic shimmery nude with a really creamy texture.

CONKER is a dark shimmery purple brown. Insanely pigmented, almost metallic.

MOSS is a medium brown with deep green shimmer. I love itall over the lid with absolutely nothing else :)

BARK is a cool matte dark brown. Very pigmented, blends nicely.

MINERAL EARTH  is a super dark shimmery (almost metallic) brown. Basically a shimmery version of Bark.

REGAL is a matte version of Conker. Veeery pigmented but swatches horribly.

NOIR is a matte black, very pigmented (you can find Noir in a lot of Sleek palettes).

I think this would be a great travel palette for anyone who loves using neutral colors (I might bring Curacao with me as well.. :P ). Keep in mind that most of the shadows are fairly cool toned.
I gave the spongetip applicator to a friend (I cannot, for the life of me, figure out how to use them) and she said it works fine so that's a plus.
Overall for less than 10€ on their website (in Slovenia they're around 13€ and you can buy them here) you really can't go wrong.
