It’s been quite a while since I last posted an eyeshadow palette’s review. Recently I bought some new eyeshadow palettes including my now absolute favourite Sleek Makeup i-Divine Original. It’s a palette which was on my wishlist for a long time. Last year, I bought it from Sleek Makeup website. I have used several eyeshadow palettes from Sleek Makeup but didn’t get a chance to try this one. So, now that I have it, let’s talk about the good and the bad of this palette.
Sleek Makeup i-Divine Eye-shadow palette is a combination of both bright and neutral shades. You can create different looks using it, both for day and night.
What company says…
Sleek Makeup’s Legendary i-devines are 12 shades of high-quality, super-pigmented eyeshadow suited to every skin tone-
- A palette with12 highly-pigmented pressed eyeshadow shades
- This velvet-touch eye shadow gives full and shimmering coverage to the eye lid for maximum effect
- Each shade can be applied alone for a dramatic effect or mix shades to create a personalised look
- Best applied with the applicator enclosed
- 12 shades in palette
In the mirror of my own experience
I have described Sleek Makeup’ eyeshadow palettes packaging many times in my old posts but as it has been quite long, I will mention it again. The packaging is a sleek black matte casing. There is “Sleek Makeup” embossed on the flap. On the inside is the wide mirror. There is 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 which can be quite useful if you are in hurry or while travelling.
When you open the case you find some beautiful colours in the palette. Its unique combination of colours you will find in very few palettes. It almost both day and night collection. It’s a palette which can be used for natural as well as bright and special occasions look. Each of the 12 shades can be applied even alone without primer. You can create countless looks with these shades.
The shades are tremendously creamy and smooth in texture. It’s silky and soft and gives intense and shimmering coverage to the eyes. It feels velvety while touching to your eyelids. It blends like a dream.
If I speak about the pigmentation of the shades, I will say they all are just phenomenal. All shades are highly pigmented. However, I’m not surprised as most of Sleek Makeup eyeshadow palettes are superbly pigmented and they are well famous for this speciality. All shades have great colour pay off and can be used without primer but it’ll be always best to use a primer before applying the eyeshadows to increase the lasting power and save from smudging and creasing.
Now on the lasting power, the palette wins this part of the battle as well. The shades stay for about 6-7 hours with primer. After this period, they slightly start to fade but like other palettes of Sleek Makeup, the shades never get patchy on the lids. Without primer, it can last 4-5 hours easily but I didn’t try it that way.
Now it’s time to examine the shades:
Matte Black – It’s a perfect black shade with some glitters. It’s the only matte shade from the palette. It’s creamy and highly pigmented. It’s an ideal shade for creating smokey eye makeup.
Shimmery Purple – It’s a lovely purple colour with beautiful shimmer. With its smooth and silky texture, it’s amazing for blending. No fall out at all.
Dark Blue – It’s a beautiful and unique blue shade, extremely pigmented and creamy and soft in texture. It can be used for night occasions and for a lovely smokey look too.
Blue – Another blue but completely different from the first one. It’ll be beautiful with blue, white or pink outfits. Creamy and highly pigmented.
Teal Blue – This is a teal blue shade with shimmers. It’s also very creamy and superbly pigmented. Will look very pretty with alone and with different colours.
Forest Green – It’s a wonderful green shade with lovely shimmer. A classy shade of special occasions as well as for natural kind looks. It’s upon you how you combine it with the colours according to the occasion. It’s extremely pigmented and with a velvety texture.
Light Warm Gold Shimmer – A beautiful golden shade which can be used in the brow bone and inner corners of the eyes. It’s decently pigmented but slightly less if I compare it with the other shades. It does a little fall out so it’ll be better if you apply it with a primer.
Pink – It’s one of my favourite shade, very wearable so can be applied anywhere. It’s extremely pigmented and smooth in texture.
Peachy Pink – Another favourite, It’s an elegant pink with a peach undertone. Silky and buttery texture and high pigmentation. Will look perfect on all skin tones.
Copper – Perfect for festivals and parties. It’s beautiful copper shade with gorgeous shimmer. Great on all skin tones. Extremely pigmented with a buttery texture. Can be mixed with different shades.
Bronze Gold – One of the other favourite, It’s a gorgeous shade. With rich pigmentation and creamy texture. The shimmer is so pretty and gives a lovely sheen to the eyes. You can create some glamorous eye makeup with it.
Olive Green – One of the prettiest shade from the palette. You will want to apply it again and again. Can be created a lot of beautiful looks with this shade. Perfect for all skin tones, amazingly pigmented and smooth.
Amazing collection of shades in single palette
Extremely silky and smooth texture
Doesn’t have too many shimmers
Great combo of neutral and bright shades
Never irritate the eyes
Never crease and fade with primer
A little fallout but completely manageable
Shipping and custom in India makes it expensive which is quite frustrating
Is anything more I should say about this ideal palette? I’m so so happy to get it! I have used it several times and never get bored. I’m happy to have a palette which is perfect for day and night occasions plus can be worn from all casual to functional outfits. Doesn’t matter if I’m wearing Indian attires or Western, it is superb for every outfit. HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, doesn’t matter if you are a natural look lover or drama queen, this palette is perfect to enhance the beauty of your eyes.
