Sleek MakeUp i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette- Original
Bought this as a gift for my sister, after buying one for myself and oh they are just so beautiful, colours true and easy to blend. My sister and I were v happy not only because of the quality but also the price!

The mixture of matte and shimmers is misleading
I do love Sleek, the first eye shadow palette I used is the Original palette. The description says there are mattes and pearlescent in this palette. I found out that there is 1 matte and the rest are pearlescent. The shades on the picture look like you could do a lovely subtle day time look, BUT with all of the colours being pearlescent, it can look a bit over the top. This meant I had to buy the matte palette too. The matte shade is black in the Original palette.
Overall, they are truthful when they describe the shades are super-pigmented. They will last so long as you only need to blend a small amount to create a great look.
I have even had a naughty day where I slept in my makeup and my eye makeup was very much still there in the morning!! I don't recommend doing this though, lol.

Lovely palette, but very shimmery!
This palette has a good range of colours, but only one matte pan - not like the photo suggests! I do like this palette, but as another reviewer has mentioned it can be a bit strong with all the shimmer!
The large mirror in the compact is useful and as usual the compact itself is very solid. Occasionally I do have trouble opening it, but I'd rather that than it be flimsy! Threw the sponge applicator away as it doesn't pick up the product well enough.
L-R (top); matte black, (everything else is pearlescent / shimmery), mid purple, dark blue, blue green, teal, green, pale yellow - comes out light gold, light pink, dusty pink, copper, mid brown and mossy green.
- Again, the photo is not true to life where the colours are concerned. Search for an image of them swatched before you buy directly online!
