Shopping: 3 Sleek palettes

Hi girls,

I'm so excited!! Today I received my latest online order:


3 Sleek I-divine mineral based eyeshadow palettes: Original, Oh So Special and Au Naturel...

Let's take a closer look at the palettes...

Au Naturel:




12 beautiful, earthy colors in matte and shimmer...

I'm not so good in making eyeshadow swatches, but I swatched this last palette:

No eyeshadow base, only 1 swipe of eyeshadow...

Over all picture:

I'm so happy with these palettes!!

How I used it:
I've just received this palettes, so I haven't used these ones yet.

But I always use an eyeshadowbase underneath the eyeshadow to prevent creasing.

Review:
The pigmentation of these mineral based eyeshadows is really amazing. The swatches I've made are without primer or eyeshadowbase. These are just one swipe on each finger and then straight on my arm. It is of excellent quality. I have to admit now that I've tried the matte eyeshadows too, they are a bit less pigmented then the shimmer eyeshadows. Maybe the matte colors intensify when a primer or eyeshadowbase is used.

Availability & price:
The Sleek palettes are available on the internet in different webshops and on Ebay for ± €7,25 (about $10,-).


What do you think about Sleek palettes?

Thanks for reading!

Sleek "Storm" eyeshadow palette

Hi everyone!

Today I would like to show you my new Sleek Eyeshadow palette...


It is the I-Divine Sleek "Storm" eyeshadow palette.
I'm so happy with it!

Matte and shimmer combined in 1 palette...

A closer look...


Now... Let's take a look at the colors and swatches:

1st row colors (click to enlarge)

2nd row colors (click to enlarge)

2nd row swatches


How I used it:
Today I'm wearing taupe, and so I picked the two colors on the 1st and 2nd row. I put the lighter color in the inner corner of my eye and I put the darker color on the outer corner of my eye and blended these two colors in the middle... It looks real nice and sophisticated. And while I'm not really used to wear eyeshadow,  it is decent and not too outstanding. I think this palette can be used to make very simple and decent eyelooks and make very obvious and evening eyelooks.

The Sleek palettes are available on the internet in different webshops and on Ebay. I bought mine in a webshop called Alice & Jo Havesentials and paid €7,25 (about $10,-) for it.

Do you own Sleek palettes? Have any recommendations (musthaves) that I need to know of?


Goodnight!

Sleek Blush Rose Gold

Hi!

Today I want to show you a blush from Sleek called Rose Gold...


 I ♥ the look of the packaging...


... it has no applicator but it does have a big mirror...



Do you see the golden shimmer in it? I really like it...


Let's see some swatches:



Rose Gold is somewhere between peach and pink with a hint of golden shimmer and a coral undertone.
You can almost call it a duochrome shade... Also very nice is that it's pigmentation is really awesome!
You'll have to be very careful to not put on too much, or else you'll look like a clown, and we don't want that :)




It was kinda hard to capture the swatch on my hand, but ok... I think you'll get the idea :)

What do you think of this Sleek Blush? Do you own (other) Sleek products?

Have a nice day!
