Nature always inspire us! I always keep in mind the beautiful colors of nature while either choosing an outfit or makeup! The greenish effect of garden, the orange rays of the sun, the hot red roses or the sparkling silver effect of moonlight. Sleek Makeup's new range of makeup is completely inspired by garden, jungle and flowers! .
I'm lucky enough to have received the sample of the Sleek Make Up Garden of Eden range. You really feel special when you get a Limited Edition range in your hands.
It's really surprising that Sleek Make Up Garden of Eden palette is a limited edition because it does not have special packaging much like the majority of previous Sleek Make Up i-Divine palettes. It'll be great if the packaging had been a little more creative. Anyways this palette comes presented within a slim, matte black casing complete with a mirror and foam applicator. There is nothing new in the packaging so don't want to discuss much about this matter.
There are 12 shades in the palette like all Sleek Makeup palettes. But...the shades are all new and extremely beautiful. There are some variety of green, purple and brown. Green shades remind me a beautiful garden full of plats and trees.
Now, let's check the shadows one by one. As you all know Sleek Makeup always gives some interesting names of the shades in their palettes.
A quick view on each shade and its nature.
Gates of Eden - A coppery golden warm toned shade that should be a must in a palette. It's buttery soft in texture, very smooth. It's amazingly pigmented too.
Eve's Kiss - Wow, such a romantic name! It's a light lilac with a hint of dull pink, can be applied alone on the whole lids to give a romantic effect of your eyes. It appears to be satin in formula but once applied it has a metallic finish.
Paradise On Earth - This is an unique and interesting shade which is close to true purple you will find within this offering. This palette heavily features taupe shades and I would describe this as a metallic fawn kind shade, soft like silk and has great pigmentation.
Python - A beautiful chocolate brown with a hint taupe that has a metallic finish with a silky soft texture and amazing pigmentation.
Forbidden - Forbidden is a mixture of purple and brown with some golden sparkles. It's also a mixture of matte and satiny finish effect in texture but it's not as pigmented as the other formulas and does tend to be a bit chalky.
Flora -Don't agree with the name! It's a deep brown tinged fawn effect, It's completely matte but despite being a matte finish it has amazing pigmentation. Smooth and soft like the petals of flowers.
Entwined - It's dark taupe blend of purple and brown, another mysterious matte shade that has a sprinkling of golden flecks . It's quite similar with Forbidden in its nature and texture.
Adam's Apple - Another beautiful name! Adam's Apple is light apple green, It's completely matte, no glitters at all. It's silky and soft but a little chalky in application.
Fig - Like its name it's light metallic golden olive green shade with buttery soft texture and full of pigment.
Evergreen - Evergreen is beautiful, bright and cheerful light green shade, with amazing pigmentation. It has a metallic formula with creamy texture.
Fauna - Another lovely green, mid tone metallic slightly golden green type. Creamy, soft and loaded of pigments.
Tree of Life - A mysterious name, tree of Life is a deep almost teal and forest green shade. Completely matte with intensive colour pay off and creamy texture.
Finally... It's really a palette from the Garden of Heaven. Will suit all skin tones and all seasons. You can create some lovely eye makeup with these gorgeous colors. All shades are beautiful and highly pigmented. The textures are soft and creamy all most all shadows. Just two shades are less pigmented and a little chalky but you get a treasure of quality in this palette. I highly recommend this palette to all my readers. I know it has launched on the 15th of January and is limited edition but still you can get it if you do order quickly.
