Sleek Makeup fans rejoice as their is a new Sleek Make Del Mar Volume 1 i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette available for a limited time for Summer 2014. The Sleek Makeup Del Mar Volume 1 i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette features twelve shades of eyeshadow 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.

Take a look!

When it comes to beauty on a budget I think the Sleek Makeup i-Divine Eyeshadow Palettes give you a nice bang for your buck. They include twelve shades of shadow in a slim, easy on the storage, easy to travel with black compact featuring a generous size mirror and a double ended sponge applicator for application. At $12 bucks per palette no one can deny these are a super cheap thrill especially since Sleek Makeup’s eyeshadows are typically formulated with a smooth velvety texture that’s heavy on the pigment.

Sleek Makeup Del Mar Volume 1 i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette is a funky selection of Summer shades that are subtly bright and playful. These are oddly textures as I can’t decide if they are more of a satin, semi-matte, or matte formula. One of the shades, Lounge Lover, is true to Sleek’s original eyeshadow formula with a creamy texture and a slightly frosty finish. The other shades are more of a combination satin matte texture. I find the colors soft and silky but slightly chalky when applied. The shades are very subtle and color has to be packed on considerably to achieve the best color pay off. A cream base or shadow helps to give them a better color pay off but not by much. They are the type of formula which blends color away as you apply so you’re left building and building and building during application. I felt the colors faded very quickly both with and without primer under them. It’s also difficult to get contrast and definition when shades are used together as they blend together in a muddy finish.

Unfortunately, the Sleek Makeup Del Mar Volume 1 i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette was disappointing for me. The colors are a bit too washed out and prove a hassle to build up and even when they are built up they are unimpressive. You might consider this one a purchase if you don’t mind brighter yet more subtly pigmented eyeshadows. Personally I expect more from Sleek Makeup and the more just isn’t showing up in the Del Mar i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette.

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I use my Garden of Eden palette all the time. I got super excited when I saw the beginning of the post, but the colors are definitely not appealing to me. I really don’t like mattes, but they should at least perform well! I’ll hold out until another new one comes out.

    • Isabella Muse

      I did too! Eden was very NICE! 😀 unfortunately these are washed up 🙁 They kinda have this satin matte thing going own, guess they can’t decide what they want to be haha!

  • ChristyMG

    That’s a shame, the blues and purples are gorgeous :/

  • Laney

    A ton of these colors look like dupes for lime Crime colors, and at a better price!!

  • Nat

    Oh Muse, your eyelashes look positively velvety in these pics! *sigh* Such pretty, dark doe eyes – I am jelly! 😀

    P.S. Love those little bird earrings too!

  • Kate

    I’m on the fence about it – I felt like they were a bit more sheer than their signature heavily pigmented shadows. However, sleek mattes are EXTREMELY hit or miss, so I wasn’t too surprised. I still like it, though – about 60% of these eyeshadows I just don’t have dupes of. They put out quite interesting colors!

    • Isabella Muse

      agreed kate! sometimes they are silky sometimes chalky! really depends!

  • BeautyThink

    Hey Isabella!

    Great Review! Ive been wondering how well these palettes work! Love the swatches!

    Great Job.

    You might be intrested in my review of the Cosmetics palettes! Check it out!

  • Melody

    Sad they lack the pigment as I got excited at first for wearable bright colors on a budget! I’m def about budget lately 😉 I think I’ll try one of Sleek’s cheek palettes..

  • Vanita

    Wow, very colourful and very pigment! These colors are not wearable for my style though 🙁

  • Mimi

    Ah! I love seeing some more British make up reviews! It’s great that we can order Sleek online! (And then there is Bourjios that doesn’t ship to the US and basically says “Haha silly Americans, you cannot buy our products! Except for at ASOS who constantly sells out of everything!”)
