I have heard a lot that coming trend will be totally matte, everything from eye makeup to lip color will be liked in matte finish so after customers request to launch a completely matte eyeshadow palette, Sleek Makeup brought not only one but two entirely matte eye shadow palettes that are going to sell like hot cakes in the market because makeup lovers are getting all matte colors in the two new iDivine eyeshadow palettes, Ultra Mattes V1 Brights and V2 Darks. Both palettes consist of 12 fully pigmented matte shades,no shimmers here, completely matte, hey feeling excited? Don’t worry, I’m going to write about the same.
P Sleek Makeup i-Divine Ultra Mattes Brights Palette
Sleek Makeup has given a very pleasant surprise by launching two matte eyeshadow palettes.The two palettes consist of a Dark Palette, full of dark neutrals, and a
Brights Palette, which is, of course, full of Brights.
The one I have
is the Ultra Matte Bright Palette.
What Sleek Makeup says…
Ultra Mattes are intensely creamy, highly
pigmented colours that are super-blendable. These mineral-based
eyeshadows are so smooth in texture they are ideal for contouring eyes
and creating multi-dimensional looks.
A palette of 12 pressed eyeshadows, the V1 Brights Ultra Mattes i-Divine contains 12 pure matte shades.

In the mirror of my own experience
publishing the press information about Sleek Makeup i-Divine Ultra Mattes
palettes I got countless mails from my readers from all over the world who are
extremely excited to know this and they eagerly wanted review of these
palettes. I don’t remember how many mails I received, I have hardly ever seen such
excitement about any brand’s products among the makeup lovers. In India this brand is so popular that most of
Indian ladies don’t care about the shipping price of Sleek Makeup’s products
that makes them even more costly than some big brands that are currently
available in India.
I have to realized the fact that Sleek Makeup has achieved this strong place
all over the world due to its high quality of products and the passion of
giving some new trends to the makeup lovers to keep their preference in mind.
I have described about the packaging of
Sleek Makeup eye shadow palettes before in my previous posts so I don’t want to
go into the details. The packaging is a sleek black matte casing. There is “Sleek
Makeup” embossed on the flap. Like their other palettes n the inside is the
wide mirror with a transparent plastic sheet with names of the eyeshadows
printed on it just like their other palettes. The palette also includes a duo
felt tip long applicator too. The only difference in the packaging is the
design of the outer carton which looks lovely <3
are 12 completley matte shades in the V1 Brights palette. All shades are
beautiful but very similar to Sleek Makeup Caribbean palette, just a few
differences are between the two.
Chill is a very nice aqua shade, it’s
so cool shade for summer. It’s creamy in texture and quite nicely pigmented.
Pout is a hot pink matte shade. This
shade is almost neon-looking, creamy soft and pigmented too.
Sugarlite is a medium purple shade. This is one of the shades that has disappointed
me. It’s not pigmented at all although I love purple so I used it with primer & it was then that it showed up.
Cricket is a bright, grassy green and it’s amazingly pigmented. Very creamy in
texture and blends beautifully on the lids. It’s one of the jewels of shades.
Bolt is a bright cobalt blue. The
other jewel among the shades highly pigmented with soft creamy texture and not
falls out at all.
Strike is a bright straight up orange. Love this shade, can be used as a blush
too. The pigmentation is not bad but average. A bit hard in texture but still
Dragonfly is a bright basic green, soft texture and average pigmentation.
Pucker is another hot pink shade. Both shades are very similar to each other
and I don’t know why two same type shade are kept in the same palette. In the
pan though, Pucker looks more pink and less red than Pout, but actually both are
almost same. In the Caribbean palette, one
shade was red on the place of two pinks.
Bamm is a bright canary yellow. Not strong pigmentation in it , but it’s still
an exciting shade.
Floss is a light neutral pastel pink, and is one of the three neutral shades in
the palette. It’s very creamy in texture but a little less pigmented than some
of the really bright shades.
Crete is a very light, whitened concrete grey.
Another lovely neutral shade, it’s pigmented and very creamy textured. Caribbean palette had a black shade(NOIR) instead of this grey.
Pow is a white that’s medium in
pigmentation but very creamy texture.
In terms of texture, these are much
like the other matte shades in other Sleek palettes, some are very soft and
creamy in texture and some are a bit hard but still creamy and blendable.
I found the pigmentation to be generally very
good, as per Sleek Makeup‘s general quality. There are only a couple of shades which are a little lacking in pigmentation.
I can say that they are superb in applying. The shades that are less pigmented also come up well with primer. Most of shades have creamy texture and blend well. I noticed very less fall out & that’s amazing.
It’s very lovely palette for the summers, though generally I don’t like much bright shades but no doubt, they all give a beautiful effect to your eyes.
Like other Sleek Makeup eye shadow palettes, almost all shades have strong staying power. You need a good primer for less pigmented shades but much pigmented shades can stay long even without primer or base.
The ladies who like
bright & pastel matte shades will enjoy Sleek MakeUp’s Ultra Matte i-Divine Palette V1 Brights.
The packaging is sleek
but sturdy with a great sized mirror inside.
Sleek makeup has
given the name ‘Brights’ the palette has various light pastel neutral shades
The shade selection is superb;
most of bright shades are available in it.
Overall the shades
are really pigmented, some are amazingly pigmented.
They are not chalky;
the texture is soft and creamy.
.The formula is soft
and easy to work with, with very little fall out.
Very strong lasting
No need to say about
price which is incredible.
|Cricket, Chill, Pout & Bolt (L-R)|
|Strike, Sugarlite, Dragonfly, Floss|
|Crete, pucker, bamm, pow|
A few shades like Sugarlite disappointed me with it’s pigmentation so for such a shade you require a good primer.
Overall it’s a very beautifull palette especially for those who don’t already have similar shade palette, if you have Sleek Makeup Curacao palette then no need to get this because both palettes are almost same. But bright matte shades lovers consider it as a gift from Sleek Makeup. Most shades are pigmented and have creamy soft texture. They blend very well and have strong lasting power. No fall out at all which is very satisfactory because it’s so frustrating to see the colors falling out on my face during application. No need to say much about the cost so I’m very happy with the palette and would love to purchase the V2 Dark i-divine too.
I’ll surely recommend it to my readers who love brightness and happiness on their face.
This palette can be found at all Super-drug outlets across UK. Available also on
Sleek Makeup’s website as well. This palette cannot be shipped to US as
per some rules.
