How to use Bronze Block
Apply using a powder brush, either individually or by swirling the four shades together, depending on your desired result. Sweep sparingly to build up to the tone desired across the forehead, cheeks and chin.
Bronze Block is perfect for emphasising your natural bone structure. Apply with a powder brush to the tops of your cheekbones and above your brows to contour and sculpt.
The pink hue can be used alone as a blush.
Sleek Makeup Bronze Block is available in two shades known as LIGHT and DARK. Very clear with their names, the LIGHT variant consists of lighter shades and the DARK block consists of deeper shades.
In the mirror of my own experience
Sleek Makeup Bronze Block comes in a black outer box on which you can see the bronze shades and get an idea of the shades you are going to get inside. Inside the box the Bronze Block encased in sturdy black case. The case flips open and when you open the case you get the lovely bronze blocks in four shades. The case has a built-in mirror that is very useful. The packaging is fabulous, not very luxury, but simple, classy and sturdy. It’s completely travel-friendly and can be carried in your handbag easily.
Two paler brown shades, one slightly dark brown shade and one is lovely pink in shade. I really love how versatile it is with the shades. The shades are not very deep and are perfect for light contouring.
Texture & Pigmentation
The texture of each square of powder is soft, smooth and silky. The three brown shades have completely matte in the finish while the pink one has a very subtle shimmer. All shades are decently pigmented and are really ideal for contouring.
Application & Effect
The pale brown shades are perfect for my skin tone. I never found such a perfect bronzer for my skin. Trust me, NEVER! I have a lot of bronzers in my vanity case, but this one is always in my hand while doing makeup. I use the pale brown shades as a contour with my Rouge Bunny Rouge setting brush. Whenever I want a matte finish in my makeup I swirl my brush on these two pale brown squares. Usually, I use these two shades a lot. But when I want slight sheen on my face, I move my brush within the two pale brown square and the pink square ( I avoid the dark block because it’s too dark for my skin tone). With these three I get a gorgeous slight shimmer, pale bronze effect. I apply the pink block as a blush sometimes and I really love this pretty pink blush that gives me a natural and healthy glow. This Bronze Block is so multifaceted. I always love using the pale shades on their own as a contour. They define my face very well. With the combination of three shades ( Two pale brown and the pink one) I get a flash glamorous effect that I love. The Bronze Block is such an amazing, soft, velvety bronzer which applies and blends so bea to the skin and isn’t too orange or muddy looking either.

Finally, I’m in love with the Sleek Makeup Bronze Block, I love how multi-talented this bronzer is. It has four useful shades that their job,brilliantly. I think the pale brown shades are the palest most perfect bronzer shades I’ve ever seen. They are perfect for my pale skin tone. The pink shade with slight sheen gives a great effect when mixed with the two. I can apply it as a blush in a hurry. The dark block can work as eye shadow and eyebrow filler sometimes. So they all have their own utility and work. This product is wonderful and completely worth a try. It could work as a contour, bronzer, eyebrow filler and blush all in one. I think the Sleek Bronzer in light is absolutely perfect for those with pale skin or even for bronzer newbies as it’s so easy to apply.The ‘dark’ shade of the bronzer is worth trying if you have dark skin tone. Highly recommended to all!
