I’ve been falling in love with Sleek Makeup lately. Their palettes are so compact but they manage to pack a load of color into such a tiny place plus the inexpensive price tag really rocks my world.
As you know, Sleek Makeup recently teamed up with fashion house PPQ to create a palette that was used to create various looks for PPQ’s London Fashion Week Show.
Here’s my thoughts on the Me, Myself, & Eye i-Divine.
A 12 pan palette featuring bold, vibrant shades of shadow.
There are many things that are great about Sleek Makeup i-Divine Palettes but one of the greatest in my opinion is the size. i-Divines are a tiny, travel friendly rectangle shaped palette featuring a full size mirror and twelve mineral eyeshadows. I find the palettes easy to travel with, easy to store, and contain a super variety of shades so you’re never bored with any one palette.
Of course, other appealing aspects of these palettes are the variety of color you’ll find in each, the inexpensive price tag, and high quality eyeshadow that has a fine color pay off.
If color is your thing and you enjoy it in a matte medium you’re sure to love on the Sleek Makeup PPQ i-Divine. This palette features some pretty vibrant shades of eyeshadow with nearly half those shades in a matte formula. Be it matte, frost, or shimmer, Sleek Mineral Eyeshadows have a formula that’s buttery smooth, blends easily, and has a wallop of pigment for a wonderful color payoff with every single use. I always have great success with these shadows even mattes which apply dreamy…that’s saying something considering I truly do not like matte finishes. In this case, you’re looking at six shades of matte eyeshadow and six that have a frosty, shimmery finish.
Shades you get:
- Barry White (frosty, shimmering pure white)
- Black Box (matte, pure black)
- Salt n’ Peppermint (minty green matte)
- Simply Red (coral-ish red matte)
- Pink Beret (pale peachy nude pink matte)
- Primal Green (frosty olive green)
- Fade to Grey (frosty silver gray)
- Blue Monday (deep blue green frost)
- SuperNova (taupe matte)
- Chris de Burgundy (burgundy matte)
- Lilac Allen (frosty lilac)
- Golden Silvers (dirty gold frost)
Some of the shades are quite bold and you need a little imagination should you want to use them together (by the way, they all play really nice together so blending various shades does not end up in a muddy situation). Many of the colors do stand out in the palette like Primal Green, Golden Shivers, Chris de Burgundy, and Simply Red….!
Like most Sleek Palettes I find some of their shades are a tad too frosty….blending out is key to avoid frost overdose. I find these blend out nicely so a little TLC is necessary during application to avoid an overly frosty eye look!
- Those who like vibrant shadows.
- Those wanting a bolder look for Fall.
- Those wanting to try something new and exciting (if you’ve never tried Sleek Makeup before this is a great chance to do so as this palette contains some truly unique colors).
- Those who like more nude, natural shades of color (Sleek Makeup has some other options if you prefer to avoid louder shades as this palette definitely brings an injection of color along with it).
- Those who aren’t keen shopping online (Sleek is a British brand that ships to the US so online ordering is a necessary evil).
Sleek Makeup brings a healthy injection of color to the table with this palette. It contains some unique colors particularly if you’re a lover of bold, vibrant shades. For my look below I used a bit of Golden Silvers and Primal Green on my lids…my look is a bit subdued compared to others you can create with this particular palette. Shades definitely come across shimmery and a bit too frosty if you aren’t careful but with proper patience and care during application you can avoid this. Sleek definitely brings quality to the table with their i-Divine Palettes and at such a tiny price tag.
