Sleek Makeup Caribbean Collection Curacao I-Divine Palette- For the love of brights ♥♥

Whenever we girls think about eye shadow palettes and a lot of colorful eye shadows which can match our various outfits, the first option that always comes to our minds is about the Sleek Makeup’s eyeshadow palettes. They have given countless options for choosing our eye shadows which can perfectly be a match for our dresses. The amazing thing is that although of such fabulous quality they are priced soo decently that anyone can enjoy them. The interesting thing is that they are always in a sneak-peek to launch something new and special which can give the ladies more and more options to decorate their eyes and faces. They have been taking inspiration from different things, sometimes its nature, human beings & sometimes it’s from the climates & colors of different countries.

The latest collection of Sleek makeup is inspired from Caribbean climates, culture & dynamic colors which is so interesting and colorful. The collection is for the girls and ladies, who are lively, love the life’s different shades, like the brightness of nature. To be honest, these type of women never lose their courage and always fight again the difficult circumstances of their lives and emerge as the winner.

The Caribbean collection consists of three things-

But today I'm just reviewing the Curacao palette which consists of 12 shades of eyeshadows.

Curacao Palette

It is a 12 shadow palette & features six shimmery shades and six matte shades. It has a lot of different colors in it including bold corals, ocean blue hues & tangerine brights.


$12/ £6.49


The packaging of this palette gives the feeling of the Caribbean atmosphere, the sea, boats and coconut trees. Inside the packet we find the beautiful slim black case of Sleek makeup Divine eyeshadow palette which. Inside the black case we get 12 colorful shades one side of the case and the other side a wide mirror. The palette comes with a duo side of sponge applicator inside it.


There is a thin plastic film kept over the eyeshadows which has the names of the shades printed on it. Here is what I think about the various shades:

The shades are so different from others. Not any shade has been repeated. Almost all shade are very pigmented. We get some fall out in some darker shades but we can easily ignore to see how well the go on the lid and how nicely the blend. The main specialty of this palette is that we can find the mixture of dark and light shade in one palette together. Every shades of this palette have it own specialty.

Top row left to right

Tequila Sunrise:It is a metallic orangish copper eyeshadow. It is much pigmented. It has some shimmer in it. Very easily applied on the lids and give a lovely finish. I love this shade.

Martini:It’s a creamy pearly shade, shimmery in nature. Very soft in applying. Love its pigmentation. Perfect for applying in my inner corner and highlight my brow bone.

Blue Hawaiian : This is a sky blue shade which is not much pigmented. I had to do 4-5 swipes to get the color that is shown in the swatches. You’ll have to put a bit of effort to get a dark shade but it is useful when we require a light, casual makeup.

Bloody Mary : It’s a crimson red eyeshadow which has medium pigmentation. It looks beautiful & will show up nicely! Bright-shade lovers will surely like this. It is matte in nature.

ScrewDriver : It is a dark yellow eyeshadow again matte. Pigmentation is better than Bloody Mary & again a beautiful option for bright-shade lovers!! Blends very easily & has a smooth finish.

Green Iguana : It is a metallic finish teal green eyeshadow. Very pigmented & has gorgeous shimmers. Blends & applies like a dream!!!

Second row left to right

Apres Midori : It is a parrot green shade with slight shimmers. Has a pearly finish and is very pigmented. Blends & applies very well!

Blue Lagoon : A bit darker than Blue Hawaiian. Very well pigmented & blends very nicely.

Purple haze : Purely purple eyeshadow. No shimmers but not very well pigmented. But yet good for a casual eye makeup.

Green Martini : It’s a dark blackish green eyeshadow with light golden shimmers in it. Very pigmented and smooth & has some amount of fall out.

Singapore Sling : It is a beautiful pink shade with noticeable shimmers…very pigmented & applies very softly.

Expresso Martini : A pure carbon black shade. very pigmented, perfect for doing smoky EOTDs, matte in nature.

Good points

Love the beautiful slim packaging which is so handy :D.
Almost every shadow is very pigmented and intense.
Six shimmery and six matte is a great balance to make both matte & shimmer lovers happy!
Most of shadows are so soft and silky in texture that applying and blending them is a great feeling.
All the shades are different from each other. Even the three greens present are completely different from each a variety of shades. Repetition of shades is a problem in many palettes but not in this.
The applicator provided can be a helpful one who do not use separate brushes.
A wide mirror is very useful while doing makeup.
The shimmers present in the six shades are not too intense & will not look weird on applying.

Bad points
Two shades- Blue Hawaiian & Purple Haze are not highly pigmented which is a bit disappointing.
A bit of fall out in some shades.
If you love dull, neutral & light shades, this one won't go for that but still Sleek has countless of options so you can choose any other palette!!! I would surely recommend everyone to try Oh So Special for a variety of neutral shades.

Final thoughts
Finally it's a perfect palette in which we find a world of different colors, some dark and some light, some shimmers and some matte. Every colors tells its own quality and story. The girls who love brightness and intensity, this palette is a precious gift for them from Sleek Makeup. The
impressive part of this palette is that there is a mixture of both dark & sheer as well as light & casual shades. The ladies who love light and subtle eye makeups also wouldn't be disappointed with this palette because some light and beautiful shades can make them smile. The quality and pigmentation of almost every shadows tells the story of Sleek Makeup's fame. The softness and velvety texture makes the shadows apply on the lids like a dream. I'll appreciate Sleek Makeup for lunching an amazing palette for us. I really love this collection of colors ♥♥♥!!
