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.

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!!

I read about these palettes for a while before buying one. But I adore the idea of a palette, and I loved these sparkly and dramatic colours. I had to order it from the UK, as here in Germany they're not sold in stores. (Mostly I like individual eyeshadows, since invariably some colours get ignored.) Still wasn't expensive, though. Shipping was free.
I went for "Bad Girl", and I'm glad. The colours are gorgeous, very versatile and deeply pigmented. I especially love the choice of greys, and the dark green. And the purple....The intense blue and darker gunmetal make a brilliant smokey eye, with heaps of black mascara! As others have mentioned, the shadows are not very "blendy", so I often find myself using them as eyeliner/top liner over another neutral shadow. The colours are really longlasting. I apply them with my own brush, as I don't think much of the sponge applicator!
The lighter greys and pale pinky beige are great highlighters. With a good base underneath, they stay put very well.
The palette is pretty robust, nice to hold, and the mirror generous. For the price, I think this product is great. I might buy "Storm" next...

I've tried a couple different palettes from this line (Snapshots, Acid, Storm) I have to agree with another poster where the colors look nice in the pan but do not transfer/stay well. Regardless of what primer I use, it doesn't seem to make a difference. The color just doesn't stay on. I have dry skin so that may make a difference because I know these work lovely for some... just not me. I much prefer Wet N Wild palettes and they are much more accessible since I live in the US.

I hate to say this, but I'm so disappointed with this product. After hearing so much about it I decided to get the Bad girl and Au Naturel. The colours look gorgeous in the pot. But once you put them on they stay for maybe 1 or 2 hours. They don't apply evenly (very few do), and most of the shimmery/glittery ones are either extremly powdery or chuncky. Plus they looked way diffrent on the website.
Overall, I still really want to like them. Sadly, I really really don't.

In my opinion, this is one of the best brands of eyeshadow available. The colour selection is fantastic. The quality rivals that of urban decay; highly pigmented and goes on smoothly, lasts all day with a primer and blends really well. I'm really impressed! I paid £7.99 for the bad girl palette whereas my urban decay palette cost £46. I know where I'll be looking in the future. I want to buy all of them!

I love these palettes. They are really cheap for what you get. The quality is really amazing, in my opinion the pigmentation of the eyeshadows is in most cases as good as my mac eyeshadows, but it's a lot cheaper. I also like the big mirror, as I like to apply my makeup on the go.
I have several of these pallettes, but my favorite is the storm palette. It has amazing colours, but not over the top.

Love! Love! Love! A friend of mine gave me the bright matte pallet for my birthday and its great! The texture of the shadows are sort of creamy go on like velvet no fall out so far.The colors are great nice pigmentation. Only bummer on this brand is that you can't get some pallets sent to the USA. And those are the ones I like the most....:-(

Oh yes Sleek eye pallets. About 10yrs ago I tried a lipstick from them and tested a foundation. The lipstick was disco fantastic and the foundation was wearing me, I looked like a clown or a community mental health patient.
Fast toward to today and I have 2 eye pallets, original and the LE matt. Oh wow these colours are amazing, I find them easy to blend I use a very old but great muji eyeshadow brush that picks up a small amount of product and allows easy blending. The matt allows me to use the majority of the original pallet by toning down the shimmer to a lower watt. Although I haven't used more than 3 colours at a time I love them. I just wish that I could pull off the acid pallet.
In comparison to high end eye shadows I liken them to some mac, iman and fashion fair and for the price damn they are good. Pigmented, long lasting on my slightly oily lids and with good blending do not crease. The choice of colours allows you to play.
Incidentally I bought the primer but I didn't rate it as well, possibly i wasn't using it correctly but I don't think it gave a richer colour payoff of the shadows nor increase the longevity. I gave it to my cousin who loves to wear it on its own. So different strokes for different folks.
But £6 for 12 long lasting colours for WoC and her fair skinned sisters is short of amazing in the UK. Long live Sleek.

I absolutely LOVE Sleek and their i-Divine palettes. I got my first one in 2008 and I STILL own it! The only thing that I don't like about these eyeshadows is that they're very fragile and break easily, but other than that, the pigmentation is amazing, both dry and wet and the colors are beautiful. I try to save up for most of their new palettes and I can't wait to get their new ultramatte ones!

Great product. I have the original palette, the colours stay for ages and are very pigmented. Very good value as they sell for about £6 in Superdrug.

I have this palette in Original, and wish I got the Storm one too before I left the UK. I'll do my review on the Original palette alone.
The eyeshadows in this palette are great variety of colors to start out with. They have a great buttery consistency, with very fine shimmer and a great matte black color. Did I mention that these also have great pigmentation? I reach for these a lot when I wear going out/party looks. I think this is a great starter palette for those who want to start experimenting with more adventurous eyeshadow looks.
