Product Review : Sleek i-Divine palette

Friday, August 22, 2014

Hello lovelies!

I am lucky enough to have friends that travel and that know me well. Therefore, I sometimes get to play around with makeup from around the world :)

I have for you here a review on the Sleek's i-Divine Ultra Mattes V2 palette. Sleek is an affordable brand from the UK. The good news is that you can order from their websites. These palettes retail for 11.99$CA and you get can get 4-10 business days shipping for under 2$ (to Montreal, Qc anyways).

Bottom line, it comes out cheaper or just about the same price as the Maybelline The Nudes palette (they do offer palettes with nude shades) and they are AMAZINGLY pigmented. I wasn't too hot on the Maybelline palette in comparison to the Urban Decay products (you can read my review HERE), but these are comparable to high end. Great quality product.


What I like about this palette specifically is that they are all matte shades, which I didn't have in my collection.



So here are the swatches :
From left to right: Orbit, Ink, Highness, Noir, Dune, Pillow Talk

From left to right: Thunder, Maple, Flesh, Paper Bag, Villan, Fern
These are all just a light swatch, like tap a bit on a finger and gently press on the skin, kinda swatch. RIDICULOUSLY pigmented! Probably the most pigmented shadows I've come across. When I used them for the first time, I wish I was warned, I ended up with a much more intense and smokey look than expected, ha. Nonetheless these are like BUTTAH and blend very nicely. 

A little goes a long, long way. Also the shades in this palette are so unique, a very interesting combo, and gives you limitless options for makeup looks : natural, smokey, bold...It's a great palette for travel if you don't want to bring too much makeup with you. Also the packaging is nice and well...Sleek! So it doesn't take much space, double win :P

Bottom line, if you're looking for a great quality and affordable palette, look no further! You can also check the other color selections they offer HERE

I can't wait to try more from this brand! Apparently the blushes are fantastic :)

Talk to you soon!
