Dupe Alert | Urban Decay Flushed Palette VS Sleek Face Form Palette

Hello My Lovelies,

Hope your all well and the week has started off amazingly :) I had an accounting exam this afternoon and i'm so glad to see the back of it now, no more stressing...well, until the next deadlines start looming! Todays post is going to be a comparison review of the Urban Decay Flushed Palette and Sleek Face Form Palette.

I first discovered Sleeks Face Form Palette last year whilst on the hunt for their contour kit in Superdrug, i wasn't successful so i decided to pick up this little beauty. To be honest i hadn't had much wear out of it until i recently traveled and brought it along with me, it became super handy and now i love it! As you know i picked up the Urban Decay Flushed Palette a few posts ago in a collective haul, i've been alternating between using these palettes on a daily basis as all the products i need for my complexion are all in one handy palette, they are super handy when i'm in a rush for University in the morning.

Whilst at #bbloggers chat a few weeks ago i asked if you'd like to see a comparison between the two palettes and you sad yes!


Sleek - Face Form Palette (Light 373) £10
Urban Decay - Flushed Palette £20

I am an odd ball because I keep most of my Makeup in their original packaging haha, i just think it looks pretty in my collection and i can see everything clearly organised in my Beauty Closet. Considering, i use them both on a daily basis the packaging has done pretty well. The Sleek packaging is a little tatty now but it's because they are well loved beauty products :D


As you can see in the picture their is a significant difference in the packaging between both palettes. The UD Flushed in it's famous golden packaging to match the NAKED range and Sleeks classic black.  They both are pretty sturdy and are easy to clean. The Sleek palette is a tiny weeny bit smaller and thiner. Suprisingly the Sleep Palette holds more product :) it holds 20g where the Urban Decay Palette only holds 14g. 



(First time doing proper swatches as it's been requested by my lovely readers, sorry if they're not that great haha i'll learn to make them look amazing soon ;P)

As you can see from the swatches the shades are very similar, however i did notice a difference in the textures of the products, each swatch has two swipes of product on them. The Urban Decay Flushed Palette had a more creamy texture i found when applying the products to my arm. 

Bronzer 

The Sleek bronzer is super pigmented compared to the Urban Decay one which when swatched came out more sheer. When i apply them on my face i have noticed that the Sleek version shows up more on my skin. They both give off different tones of warmth to my skin, i love alternating between them. 

Highlighter

The highlighters are the most similar out of everything within these palettes. They are both extremely shimmer and look beautiful on the skin. I'd say the Urban Decay highlighter has more of a pink undertone though like i stated in my review and the colour pay off is slighly darker compared to Sleek.

Blusher

The blushers are not that similar in terms of shades. The Sleek one has pinky/peachy Rose Golden tones and is also packed full of shimmer which i absolutely adore, it's a great dupe for Nars Orgasm blush! The Urban Decay shade has hardly any visible shimmer and when applied to the cheeks comes acorss demi-matte. 

Overall, i have come to the conclusion that i love both palettes, i really can't decide between them as i'm too much of a makeup junkie haha but... i'd love to know your opinions on the palettes :D I think the Sleek version is an amazing dupe of the Urban Decay palette, i'm always on the hunt for a great dupe and it is much more purse-friendly as it's half the price of the Urban Decay version, it also appears to be much more pigmented. 
Have you tried any of these palettes? What do you think about them? 

If you liked this post, would you like me to do any other comparison reviews? If so, pretty please leave me a comment below :D if you have any other requests of questions then please do not hesitate to leave me a comment or contact me via my social media platforms or email :D

  4. Lovely reviews, from the picture with the make up on your arm I think the Sleek colours are more pigmented which appear to be the better product. Although this is just an observation!

  11. Such a great dupe! I was actually eyeing the Face Form palettes in Superdrug today, and whilst I think it looks better in the palette, the Urban Decay Flushed Palette seems to look better in your swatches. I may have to get to my nearest UB counter to have a look.

  26. This is such a great post! Both of them sound equally as lovely as the other so I think it will simply be the price that will sway me towards Sleek xx

  34. I actually really like the sleek palette. The bronzer seems to be more brown rather than orange, the UD seems a bit more orangy in the photo!
