Eyeshadow palettes have always been my favorite makeup items. I love eyeshadow palettes for inspiration the color combinations give me. When I look at an eyeshadow palette I always see a ton of looks I can create with it! I think that Sleek MakeUP does a really good job in terms of providing us with an inspiration hidden within their palettes. I have the first ever Sleek eyeshadow palette reviewed for you today – Sleek MakeUP I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in Original.
Sleek MakeUP I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette ($11.99) in Original contains a variety of highly-pigmented metallic colours, ranging from bronze to purple, allowing you to create endless shimmery looks fit for day or night.
As usual, Sleek MakeUP I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in Original comes in black plastic packaging that houses 12 eyeshadows. Each eyeshadow weighs 1.1 g or 0.03 oz that totals in 13.2 g or 0.36 oz of product you get with this palette. Inside the palette you will find a full sized mirror and a double-sided sponge applicator that is of no use for me. The shades inside are presenting the whole rainbow spectrum and the finishes are ranging from satin to shimmery and metallic. Look for swatches right after the shades description.
Black Cab is a medium-dark gray-ish black shade with the barely visible ultra-fine silver shimmer that changes its finish from matte to satin on the skin. It is not a true black but is biuldable to fully opaque black-ish shade on the skin.
Royal is a bright warm-toned purple shade with a high amount of silver shimmer and a strong metallic finish.
London Rain is a warm-toned medium-deep navy blue shade with slightly green undertones. It has a very frosty finish due to tons of multi-colored shimmer it contains.
Cream Tea is a very warm-toned and light milky shade with very strong yellow undertones and a shimmery finish. This shade is quite unique as I could not find anything close in my collection. I would also describe it as a champagne gold and it also works wonderfully as inner corner or brow bone highlight.
London Eye is warm-toned muted medium-dark pink shade with a shimmery finish.
Big Ben is a light peachy pink shade that leans slightly cool-toned on the skin. Due to a huge amount of silver shimmer in it, it appears more whitened and has a very metallic finish.
The Thames is a cool-toned bright blue shade with tons of silver glitter that results in a frosty/glittery finish.
E10 is a warm-toned bright blue shade with slightly green undertones and tons of extremely finely milled multi-colored glitter that adds a lot of frostiness to the finish of it.
Hyde Park is a very warm-toned blue-based green shade that has a very frosty finish due to silver and gold shimmer it contains.
Penny Farthing is a very warm-toned copper shade with very strong orange and terracotta undertones. It has a huge amount of pink, silver and gold shimmer in it that makes it appear shimmery on the skin.
Sterling is a warm-toned medium-deep bronze shade with a huge amount of silver glitter and a muted metallic finish.
Banksy is a bright yellow based olive green shade with tons of gold shimmer and a strong metallic finish combined with a gold sheen.
I love the names of the eyeshadows in this palette – all of them are inspired with London! Besides that, I have to say that all shadows are intensely pigmented and are biuldable from a very sheer and light application to full coverage. All shades on the photo above are applied over the Nars Smudge Proof Eyeshadow Base that is how I wear all my eyeshadows. Nevertheless, these eyeshadows perform as beautifully on the bare skin but the wear time is limited with how oily your eyelids are in this case. When applied over a base these eyeshadows easily last for nine to ten hours on me slightly fading afterwards.
I really loved the pink and peachy shades in this palette and was inspired to create a pastel pink look this time. I used a Big Ben as my crease shade, placed Cream Tea in the inner corner of the eye and highlighted my brow bone with it. Then I used the London Eye as my all over shadow and darkened the outer corner with the tiniest bit of Royal. I finished the look with a thin and clean matte black liner.
Even though the shades in this palette are quite bright and are like a rainbow in palette you are still able to create both bright and muted, warm-toned and cool-toned looks. You can easily get a perfect party look with it or you can do a very office-appropriate makeup with it. I love how much room for imagination this palette leaves you – makeup is all about creativity, isn’t it?
Overall, I have to say that this palette is of a high quality and I don’t experience any problems with it. All shades apply beautifully and last long on a base. They blend easily and are biuldable from a very sheer to fully opaque application. The variety of shades make this palette universal and you can definitely get a lot of use out of it. Wonderful quality together with an affordable price makes this palette a great value!
