I have two i-Divine, Acid and Oh So Special. I love this palettes and I would buy it again and again.
I bought the i-Divine Original Palette for my mum and I have to say the colour pay off is amazing, especially for that price! The colours remind me of Urban Decay and they are really pigmented without feeling chalky. I find that it goes on really smoothly and they are easy to work with and to blend.
On top of that I really like the packaging. It doesn't feel cheap and all and is quite sturdy/heavy and the big bonus is the big mirror.
I give this a big thumbs up and if you like Urban Decay but you are on a budget then give the i-Divine Palettesa try.
Obsessed. Why is it that we still cannot purchase these products in the US? I know that technically some of the mineral ingredients in these palettes are not FDA approved, but I betcha it's all done so American cosmetic companies will not loose their name. Can you imagine if Sleek became an American drug store brand? Bye-bye Maybelline and Wet N Wild. Well maybe not that extreme, but you get the point.
I decided to avoid ordering Sleek from their website after hearing horror stories regarding customer service, but instead ordered through Amazon seller RM Cosmetics and had no problems. The package was suppose to arrive b/w Sep. 27-Oct 3, but it actually just came yesterday (2 weeks ealier). It was wrapped in a bubble wrap and nothing was damaged. Amazing.
I purchased a few items including the iDivine - AU Natural palette and holy cow it's FABULOUS. The texture is like butter. I mean, really - if you ever touched the surface if a cold butter melting under your fingers warmth, it's THAT nice. I agree that the top row of the mattes is a bit less pigmented, but it is suppose to be a NATURAL pallete, so what do you expect. I actually like it, since those light matte colors can blend out the edges of metalic shades. The metalic shades are to die for and you just gotta experience their intensity and loveliness for yourself.
P.S. By the way, the shipping through RM Cosmetics was standard of about $5, so nothing like $12 or $13!
I have this in Oh-So Special and Ultra matts V2. Few of the Oh-so special shadows are a bit powdery and fade away when you blend them, so I like the Ultra matts V2 pallette better. There are some amazingly beautiful colours in there and it´s probably the best buy you can make if you´re looking for some nice bright and natural colors. I never had any colorful eyeshadows before and I have to say it´s so fun to play around with these colours; Maple and Villain are my favorite of the bunch to bring some softness to a smokey eye look.
The only flaw I find is that they do crease so use a good primer.
Another great product from Sleek. I first heard of this brand through YouTube. Everyone seemed to rave about it so I figured it must be good. I finally placed an order on Amazon which I found out is more expensive than ordering from Sleek's website. Anyway, my "ACID" pallet arrived in tact. The colors are all sooo gorgeous and well pigmented. I love the mirror that comes with the packaging too. I'm so impressed with this pallet, I'm considering ordering other shades. I love to find good, quality products at affordable prices.
I have iCandy and Showstoppers - amazing! Showstoppers is my go to. Good pigment but not too strong (can layer), blends well and barely any fallout. Well priced and packaging is nice - albeit gets smudgy. I love having the big mirror inside too. I wish the names were printed inside instead of on a piece of plastic. Have made 4 Sleek orders so far (to Australia), all have come well packaged, fast and safe. I love Sleek!
Love those eye shadow pallets, currently have the au natural one but will be going back to get some more. Well work investing £8 in, they have good pigmentation and last a long time
I bought the ultra matte v2 palette for $10 off the sleek website, it's so cheap for what you get. The shadows are all very pigmented but are soft and break/dent easily if you aren't gentle although the palette arrived intact via international posting so it's not that fragile. The packaging is the only thing I don't like, if you try to open it with your fingernails they will bend or break. The shadow lasts and doesn't crease even with a cheap primer.
I bought the Sleek i-Divine Storm palette from Amazon for $16, shipping included. The color pigmentation is fantastic, along the lines of MAC and Urban Decay. This is the only palette that I need along with Naked2 to recreate every look possible. I am tempted to purchase the Sleek iDivine OhSoSpecial palette from this brand as well. It has coral and pink colors that look amazing in the summer season.
With shipping from UK, this palette isn't as much of a 'steal' as they brag about in Europe. However, I still find the price reasonable for the quality that you get over drugstore brands. I do not get any fall out. The colors in the pan are true to how they come out on your eyelids. As for the sellers that had a bad experience with their purchase, make sure that you are not buying the counterfeit item. That is why I paid 2 dollars more to purchase off trusty seller on Amazon, as oppose to ebay.
Let me start by pointing out that I actually do think that these are great value and I recommend them to anyone who is looking for an affordable way to expand their stash.
However, they seriously need to rethink some of their formulas.
I own the Storm, Oh So Special and Shangri-La palette and however I do appreciate the fact that they've put out some very original colours, a lot of their eyeshadows have some serious formulation issues.
Their metallic eyeshadows are unusually waxy and are quite powdery aswell, thus I have found it completely impossible to apply these with anything else than my fingers. Blendability is a serious issue here, since a lot of their eyeshadows suffer from fallout and don't seem to adhere properly to the lid. Their matte eyeshadows are fine, though, nonetheless they are powdery aswell. I have zero complaints when it comes to pigmentation, but due to their powderiness, a lot of the lighter colours do not show up well and this review is written by someone with porcelain skin.
The black case breaks by just looking at it, however I give them kudos for including a nicely-sized mirror. To conclude this review : they are super affordable and the colours are spot-on, but I hardly ever reach for them due to their powderiness and unability to adhere to the lid. A lot of people like these though, so I do suggest giving them a try before passing your final judgement. For me, these were an incredible let-down.
