The Sleek Del Mar i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette is Sleek Makeup’s most recent, limited edition release and couldn’t be
any better for Spring and Summer. I’m so pleased with being packed up with
pretty pastels because in this warm weather, we all want to keep away deep, shimmery and bright colors eye shadows. The Sleek MakeUp Limited Edition i-Divine Del Mar Volume 1 eyeshadow palette
is inspired by Ibiza and it’s tranquil, calm and overall chilled out
atmosphere with soft corals, sunset oranges, deep see blues and
picturesque greens with a splash of pink and purple. The soft pastel shades are perfect for the spring/summer season.
In the mirror of my own experience
The Del Mar palette is packaged within a special themed packaging, which depicts an Ibizan Sunset complete with instruction on how to use the colors. Inside the box you get similar black palette, something we all love to get our hands upon!
As always the new palette features 12 shades ranging from the very bright to the more pastel. Each of the 12 shades are said to be inspired by the tranquil, calm feel
of Ibiza’s chilled out atmosphere, with soft coral oranges of the
sunset, deep aqua blues of the sea and sublime greens of the picturesque
view. A quick view on the shades…
Lounge Lovers is a extremely beautiful
gold shade which makes a gorgeous all over the lid shade.It’s the only metallic shade in the palette, it can be a base
shade to use with any of the other colours through the crease. It has superb pigmentation, and is soft and creamy in texture with no fallout. I really love this lovely gold.
This shade is a matte, sky blue shade. The pigmentation is just amazing for a shade of this nature,
especially when used with a base. The texture of creamy and soft. it’s such a tropical blue, a very cool shade, perfect for summer. I can imagine how it look great with a pink, blue and white outfit. It does have quite a lot of fall
out that you you can minimized by pressing the shade onto the lid and quick blending.
It’s a matte orange shade which like Poolside,
is impressively pigmented. It’s a lovely orange shade and It would make a perfect
transition shade on light to medium skintones as its not too bright nor
is too light. The
shade name is perfect, as it really is a sunset orange. Love the silky texture and I didn’t notice any fallout with this shade.
It’s a dark, matte grape shade that will be lovely for a summer evening. The texture is soft like other shades, though the pigmentation isn’t the best, but in my opinion I would love a light reflection of this shade on my eyes in this season however if you like deep shade, you can use a primer, with a primer underneath, it
really helps to intensify the colour.
It’s a plain white matte and it’s not as pigmented as other matte shades.The texture is a bit chalky and it’s difficult to apply. It’s a bit disappointing that the
colourful, matte shades apply so beautifully yet a plain white is barely
visible. But still I think Chilled Out is best for using as an inner corner
highlight. It gives a lovely finish there. However it’s the only tiny weak part of this amazing palette.
This one is a dark, almost teal shade rather than blue.. it looks almost green then it does blue. The texture is creamy and the shade is extremely pigmented. Also I found it very original and unique shade that I’ve not got any duplicates of in any of my
This is one of the third most beautiful shade from this palette. It’s a gorgeous
purple, with a sheen like finish rather than shimmer. I insanely love its almost duo-tone appearance on the eyes, where it pulls blue in the
lights. The texture is such that I love to apply this shade with and without primer. With primer it looks just gorgeous but it gives a light sheen purple effect without primer that looks all the more beautiful especially in summer evening.
On The Rocks:
On The Rocks is my second most favourite shade from this palette. They It’s a perfect beautiful coral, with the right
balance of pink and orange. Like Opening the Party,On
the Rocks has identical textures, and has the same, unique
sheen-like finish.looks particularly pretty when used with Sunset Strip and
Feel Euphoric. Just like Opening Party, On The Rocks has a lovely,
smooth and creamy texture which applies and blends beautifully.
It’s quite a sandy, pale a bit beige colour which barely shows up on my skin tone. I had to swatch this pretty heavily just to show it on camera. I love its creamy texture and pigmentation, it doesn’t show due to its similarity to my skin tone.but I’ve found Talamanca to be the perfect shade to use
alongside any of the coloured shades in the palette as a lid
shade or a crease shade. I can use it on my brow bone too.
I have mentioned about my second and third favorite shades from this palette but now I’m going to write about my most favorite shade. Feel Euphoric is a soft, petal-like pink which is flattering enough without making my eyes look sore, which some pink shadows have the tendency to do. It has the same dreamy formula as the aforementioned
Opening Party and On The Rocks in that it’s creamy, smooth and
pigmented. It has a shimmery finish and looks really pretty
as a lid shade, when worn with the other two peachy coral shades. I would love to use it alone with a white outfit. It’ll give a fabulous effect with a same color lipstick and blush.
It’s quite a bright, punchy yellowy green shade with a slighty matte-satin finish. The texture of this shade is amazingly creamy and applies beautifully , I really love this shade but am a bit confused about the combination with which it can be used. I imagine colour lovers will
adore this shade as it’s so unique and it performs well too.
Paradise is the last shade in the palette and it’s just gorgeous. It’s amazingly pretty, pastel lilac with a matte finish
and intense pigmentation. I was surprised while swatching to see how amazingly pigmented it is, and also how creamy it was for a matte
shade. I really love this shade and would love to use it over and over again during the summers, I guess paradise is the shade, which can be one of THE many reasons to buy this palette!
Finally I can say, this limited edition Sleek MakeUP Del Mar i-Divine Palette is a stunner. The range of shades within the palette is so diverse, & as they’re all pastel, I feel that they’re all the more easier to use and wear.
There is only one letdown shade for me in the whole palette which is
Chilled Out, which lacks the impressive pigmentation & texture of the other shades in this palette. I would highly recommend everyone to get hold of this palette as soon as possible, because this is certainly a must have for the summers!!
