Sleek MakeUp Blushes & Precious Metals Highlighting Palette Review

Sleek Make Up is one of my favorite brands for blusher. The packaging is simple and the product is highly pigmented. The individual blushers are a bargain for £4.49. 
L-R Suede, Rose Gold and Life's a Peach

Suede is a really nice matte brown. Its too light for me to use as a contour or bronzer because I have an olive complexion but it's my go-to blusher if I'm undecided or in a rush.
Rose Gold is a pink glitter blush that's extremely pigmented so you only need a light brushing for a large pay off. This makes a great highlighter too.
Thirdly is Life's a Peach. This orange blush is really nice for summer and creating subtly natural looks for day time.

The Precious Metals Highlighting Palette is also a bargain for £10! You get 3 creme highlighters and 1 powder highlighter. All but one are variants of gold, with the powder highlighter being the darkest shade and one creme being a shimmery white.

L-R -
Royal Gold, Platinum, Renaissance Gold, Antique Bronze
 Each colour has amazing pay off and are pretty versatile so you wouldn't strictly have to use them as highlighters. 

 The only problems I encountered with this palette are the powdered highlighter becoming stuck in the creme squares and the lid not leaning back far enough.
When you use the powder it becomes loose and gets stuck onto the creme areas which isn't ideal.
The lid of the actual palette only opens to a 90 degree angle... I'm not sure if it's just mine but its pretty annoying!

With Flash
Other than that I love this palette for colour, versatility and price. Its a pretty handy little palette for being on the go and travelling!

Has anyone else used this or encountered the same problems?
