If you have been following me for a while now, you know I am a sucker for colorful eyeshadow.
So, recently, Sleek Makeup came to one of Croatian drugstores, and I had to check it out. This is what I decided to buy (actually my boyfriend bought it for me), and I am going to rewiew it for you today! Let’s go!
I hauled this in my latest beauty haul, and I know it’s been less than a week since I got it, but I know how I feel about it already.
What they claim?
So this is a Mineral based eyeshadow palette. It comes in 12 different shades, 0.8g (0.029 oz.) each.
On the Sleek website, they claim that this is: “super-pigmented, longlasting, mineral based eyeshadow, designed to suit all. Each i-Divine contains pearlescent shades, which contain mica particles that highlight and illuminate giving an overal radiant effect.”
I have to say I agree with basically everything here, and I am going to show you why in the rest of this post.
Also, this product is NOT tested on animals!
On the photo below, you can see the list of ingredients.
The palette comes with a double sided sponge applicator, which I probably will not use, a very decent-sized mirror and a little sheet with all the shade names.
The only con is that the packaging is sooo hard to open. I always think I’m going to break a nail while opening it.
Shades & Swatches
Now, in this whole palette, there are only a few shades I’m not excited to use. Most of them are highly pigmented, and highly gorgeous. They range from golds, pinks, purples, to bronzes, blues and greens.
You definitely have a wide choice with this palette, as well as many looks to create. However, all of them, except for one, are shimmery. So if you’re not entirely into the whole shimmery look, you may need more palettes to create your looks. I think I will use it both separately, and with other palettes.
Let’s talk about colors! The names are all connected to London and England, which you know I’m a huge fan of everything British 🙂
Top row is darker and more cooler-toned than the second row.
First shade is Black Cab, a matte black. Now, every palette comes with a matte black shadow, so I have plenty of those, but this one is quite nice. Not that exciting, though. Next is Royal, a gorgeous shimmery purple, with tiny flecks of silver. Then, London Rain. Now, I hate rain, and I’m not overly excited about this color, either. It’s dark, even darker than the black one, with flecks of silver, but I don’t see many uses for this, to be honest.
Next is The Thames, which is mostly why I got this exact palette. I don’t own a nice blue shadow, so this is perfect, and it’s absolutely gorgeous. Next is E10 (and to be honest, I don’t know what that means), which is a blue-green, kind of color. Stunning. Lastly, in the top row, we have Hyde Park, which is a gorgeous green, with golden flecks of shimmer.
Below you can see all of the top row shades swatched both with a brush (top row), and using a finger (bottom row).
The second row of this palette is warmer-toned. The shades are gorgeous, and there is not one I don’t like.
First shade is Cream Tea, and it’s a gorgeous golden, yellow highlight shade. It’s not too pigmented, but just enough to give a nice sheen. Next is London Eye, which is the most beautiful pink shade I’ve seen. It has some golden flecks in it, it’s kind of hollographic and totally gorgeous. Same goes for Big Ben, which is a peachy color, also with golden flecks of shimmer.
Then we have Penny Farthing, which is a bronze shade, that is absolutely stunning for all over the lid, and for the crease. It kind of reminds me of my Betty-Lou, but I’ll have to compare them. Sterling is a nice, darker gold shade, with beautiful reflection. Stunning. Lastly, there’s Banksy, which is a golden-green shade, perfect for fall.
Below you can see all of the bottom row shades swatched both with a brush (top row), and using a finger (bottom row).
I used this palette once so far. The pigmentation is not perfect, but it’s pretty decent. Some colors are better pigmented than the others, which is usually how it works. However, loving 10 out of 12 shades for around $12 is amazing, in my opinion!
I can’t wait to play with it more today, and I will try and remember to post my look on Instagram, like I did my last look here. I am probably going to buy some more of these palettes, too. I know I don’t need them, but I do 😀
Do you own any Sleek products? Is there a Sleek product I should REALLY try out? Do you like this palette? Let me know!
Thank you for reading!
See you soon xx
