I Ain't Saying she's a Gold Digga.... Well maybe a Sleek Glo one


I’ve been eyeing up Sleek’s Glo palettes for far too long now – what is it with their stock levels? Note to Sleek: We can’t buy it if you don’t stock it.... It was like Rose Gold all over again, but finally I tracked one down. 
Sleek Glo is a multi-colour highlighter that features five strips of colour to create an illuminated look (ala Bobbi Brown shimmer brick). Available in three shades Peach Shimmer, Bronze Baby and Gold Digga. It was a toss up between Bronze Baby and Gold Digga. In the end I decided Bronze Baby was too shimmery and Gold Digga packed more of a punch in the pigment department.
The "brick" consists of shimmering caramels, browns, bronze and mauve, whirled together they create a gorgeous bronzey brown shimmer. When I said it packed a punch in the pigment department , I wasn’t kidding. It’s quite dark and has a very good colour pay off from just one sweep. As we say up north “gan canny”! It would be really easy to over the top with the dark caramel hues. Gold Digga is more suited to medium to dark skintones. I purchased this soon after holiday. It’s a wonderful tan enhancer and is a definite shoe in for future summer holiday makeup. The powder is finely-milled, soft, smooth and silky without being powdery. It has a delicate shimmer without being glittery and a nice frosted finish.


Sadly it’s a little lacking in the highlight department, it could be more accurately described as a shimmering bronzer and it’s not as stunning as Bobbi’s famous bricks, but at this price point it’s a pretty fabulous product.
Glo £6.49 Sleek online here and Superdrug here.

  1. I must have a look for this - looks lush :) i see what you mean about the shimmery bronzer though - and you're right, stock levels are a reet nightmare with Sleek! Took me ages to get hold of my trusty contour kit!
    Your hair is gorge btw - looks so natural and full :) x x
