Sleek iDivine Palette Review

First review, woop :-)

I bought this palette a couple of months ago, and I thought it was worth talking about.

Brand: Sleek
Name: iDivine
Colour: Storm
Cost: £4.99




What I liked: I loved the rich, jeweled colours. The pigmentation was also really rich, and each shadow blends on very smooth, and is very easy to blend and mix together. I didn't find any of the shades to be chalky or not enough. Each one goes on quite thick so you only need a tiny bit, I can see this lasting me a long time.
1 is a pale coppery gold with great shimmer. It works as a great undertone for greys, blacks, browns, golds, and greens.
2 is a very pale shimmery vanillaery gold. Great I think as a high lighter.
3 is a completely matte beige/biscuit type colour. A good natural colour, good base or undertone.
4 is a gorgeously rich gold which I love.. I wore it recently with black liquid eyeliner and red lips, it looked great.
5 is a beautiful pretty rose gold. I absolutely love this colour, it introduced me to wearing pinks with my eyemakeup. I love mixing it with browns for depth.
6 is a rich golden burgundy/magenta. Probably the colour I've used lease as I;m still learning with makeup and when I put it on it looks like I've received a hefty smack. I do like experimentally mixing it with greys and blacks though.
7 is a gorgeous rich copper brown. Such a classic colour, it mixes so well.
8, god I love this colour! A gorgeous metallic blue.. I've used this with Front Cover's Shadowline and used it as an eyeliner as well as a shadow and it's amazing. I love the richness of it.
9, again, another one I love! I adore rich emerald colours and love mixing this with browns, coppers and golds.
10, a richer, deeper version of 8... gorgeous.
11 a natural, matte essential deep brown. Excellent for natural looks, and creating deeper shadows for copper, gold, bronze and beige shades.
12 is a gorgeously thick, black smudgy coal colour. This is literally like touching burnt coal.. except it goes on so much smoother! I adore this colour, it;s so gloriously thick and dramatic. Only a tiny bit is needed for a deep effect and it layers really well. Great for a deep, smoky look.
What I disliked: Nothing?! For the price, these mineral eyeshadows have amazing pigmentation and go on so well. I can use every single colour and find other colours in the palette to mix them with as well as other eyeshadows I already have. This palette is perfect for taking away with you. I often taken it to work with me on our Friday Nights Out so that I can do my makeup quickly before we go. I suppose maybe the eyeshadow blender they gave with it was a bit crap?!



Swatches:


I didn't apply the swatches very thickly and could quite catch them looking right in the rubbish lighting. This is a great swatch from the fantastic MakeupForLife.net:






Would I Buy it Again: Absolutely. I hope they don't discontinue it... I might panic and buy a spare set for when this eventually runs out!

I love mineral makeup eyeshadows, they blend well and are richly pigmented and shimmer great too...I have waay too many haha. I like that matte shade a lot though, do you find it hard to work with like other matte stuff?

Becka, I don't find it too hard working with neutral matte finishes as a base or something to deep the colour... shimmers are deifnitly easier though.
Jenna I just bought a Coastal Scents palette, I love it!

Sophie said...

I am so tempted to buy one of these! It would be perfect to take with me around the world. Everyone says how good they are too. Hmmmm!!
