Name: Original Eyeshadow Palette
From Sleek’s website:
A palette with highly-pigmented and pearlescent pressed eye shadow shades. Velvet to the touch, this eyeshadow will give full and shimmery coverage to the eye lid for maximum effect.
What I liked:
– 12 beautiful shimmery shades
– very pigmented
– easy to work with
– the packaging
– the price
What I didn’t like:
– not easily available outside the UK
I was introduced to Sleek Makeup by the lovely Anastasia. She kept raving about their palettes so I asked her if she could buy the Original one for me. I ended up loving it so much that I also purchased Chaos, a palette of bright matte shades (review coming soon!), when I was in London.
There also are two more palettes available: Storm, a selection of neutral shimmery and matte shades, and Acid, a set of very bold and vibrant shades with both matte and shimmery finishes.
Sleek I-Divine Original Palette contains 12 mineral-based eyeshadows. It has both neutral and colourful but still very wearable shades, all of which have a shimmery finish. And it only costs £4.49!
All the shades feel very soft to the touch, apply smoothly and are very easy to blend. In addition, they are all super pigmented and stay on all day and didn’t crease on me!
I really like the packaging. I find the black case sleek and classy and, unlike most palettes, it also has a large mirror that you can actually use when you apply your makeup. It comes with a double-sponge applicator, but I prefer to use my brushes. I’m not a fan of sponge-tip applicators because, even though they give great colour intensity, they also tend to soak up too much colour.
Sleek makeup is sold in Superdrug stores throughout the UK. If you live abroad, you can purchase their products online at Shades Beauty Makeup and Paul’s Hair World. I have never purchased from these websites yet, although I plan to soon, so be careful if you decide to buy from them.
This palette has become one of my staples. It is very cheap yet the quality is great! All the shades have great colour payoff and last all day. If you can get your hands on it, I highly recommend you do so!
