I love Sleek iDivine eyeshadow palettes, I currently own over 20 and think they are well worth the money paid, even when buying off eBay. If purchased from Sleek they are relatively cheap even with shipping from UK to USA. The color payout is amazing and they blend like a dream for me. I have also started purchasing Sleek's blushes which are amazing as well. Just wish that this brand was easier to obtain here in the states. I did luck into finding a great seller on eBay and she has been incredible in helping me locate some of the limited editions that are no longer available (Graphite, Curious, Safari, Bohemian, etc) at more than reasonable prices.
I bought this palette in au naturel and I love it! So versatile, I use it most days, especially the light shades because they are so easy, quick and flattering for everyday use. It seems to be a near impossible task to find matte eyeshadows on the UK highstreet so I was amazed when I found this palette. With 12 eyeshadows for £8 the price is very reasonable and the quality is flawless, they last all day without any creasing. Also the shade bark is a wonderful colour for very dark eyebrows as it is matte with no red undertones so it looks natural.
Bought this is Oh So Special and love all the colours. Deep browns/purples/pink are great colours for green eyes, especially the organza which is a gold-rose colour. You can also use bow as a highlighter (but note its not shimmery) - use in the inner corner of the eye and under the brow line. Perfect for that day-to-night eyeshadow. Will keep this in my handbag.
The shimmer colours are very pigmented and last all night! The matte colours are great for the day and I use the darker matte colours as an eyeliner under the eye. Best eyeshadow palette I have.
The eyeshadows are also pigmented and last, good quality for the price.
can't say anything bad about these palletes! So pretty and creamy.. love love love!
I have this in "Bad Girl" and considering how much I love it, I am looking into the other palettes as well. I find the shades very well pigmented on the whole. Abyss and Underground are the less pigmented shades, being rather dry, but even so they are average at worst. IMO Blade and Gunmetal are the standouts of this palette, they are amazingly metallic and are my go to for glossy-liquid-metal smokey eyes. I can just use either of them alone on the lid because of the shades' depth and reflectivity. Innocence is really nice too, for adding a hint of that same liquid-metal finish to any other eyeshadow I own. I wish Sleek made singles of their palette shades!
The shadows themselves have an unusual creamy texture. They almost feel like cream rather than powder eyeshadow. I guess this is up to personal preference but I LOVE this sort of creamy, buttery blendy texture. Smooth blending and they last until I take them off at night, or occasionally the morning after... (and that is even without primer! I have normal lids though, YMMV) In terms of pigmentation, texture and finish I much prefer the Sleek e/s over my Urban Decay shadows (which hardly get touched anymore).
The Sleek Bad Girl palette is one of the only two palettes I have not depotted into my z palettes (and I have depotted and purged many, many palettes). I think that says a lot about how much I like this palette! If you want to buy Sleek palettes I suggest waiting until they run a sale so you can basically get free shipping like I did. Next sale I'll be getting a backup of Bad Girl and maybe Storm or Matte v2!
Hmmmm!! I decided to try sleek eyeshadow palettes after seeing Pixiwoo using them on YouTube. I dont often do drug store makeup (apart from mascara), but as they had great reviews and are so cheap i decided to try them out. I now have two pallettes - au naturel and oh so special - and at first i thought they were great; good value, nice colours and consistency, blended well. However, i went back to MAC shadows and seeing the differences i now realise that they arent all that.
The main issue is they just dont last through the day, they fade and have almost disappeared after a day at the office. Also they crumble when putting on the brush and they fall down a lot! I also find they can be patchy, no matter how much base shadow i apply.
I think for young people who want the variation of different colours and want something cheap, then yes they are perfect, but for those who can afford to spend more then stick to the higher end brands.
I have the Storm palette and I really like it. Packaging is great, its slim and has a large mirror. The shadows blend well, are well pigmented and true to the colour in the pan. You can achieve many different looks as the palette has matte, shimmer, light and dark and a really good black you can use as liner (I wet the brush first). There is a little bit of fallout but pressing the shadow on rather than dusting it helps, once it is on it stays there and I have found lasts well all day. I had to buy mine online because you can't get Sleek in New Zealand but even online and with postage it was cheap enough and definitely good value. Totally 100% recommend!
I have the I-divine matte palette (version 2). Nice and SLEEK (heh) packaging, and the colors are quite nice and pigmented. Slightly chalky but decent quality nonetheless.
However my biggest gripe about this product is that when I get it in my eye (very likely if you shower before removing your makeup like I do), it really stings! It makes me wonder about the quality/safety of the eyeshadow. I have no such issues with other eyeshadows from Catrice or even ELF. It could be just my eyes that are sensitive but anyway, would not repurchase.
these palettes perform well. they are easily one of the best drugstore eyeshadows you'll find. The colors are great, the pigmentation is good and the fallout is minimal. The only downers are that the matte shades tend to be less impressive than the shimmery ones. but even that issue is getting a solution since Sleek launched two matte palettes which are nicely pigmented.
I'm not sure where the complaints are coming from about this product I found them to blend perfectly. I use this pallete on pretty much a daily basis and has become my go to make up. it cost 12 dollars to have it shipped from the UK to the United States including shipping. it's a great value, great product... I have 3 of the palettes. In oh so special, bad girl, & in storm. I have plans to own each and and every one of them. I recommend them to all of my friends. I get compliments on my makeup on a pretty regular basis, and is almost always sleek!! continued >>
