The best sleek palette ever.
I love using this for smoky eyes it is perfect with a great assortment of purples.
But unfortunately like most things it was an LE item and is no longer available
- Great pigmentation
-great selection of purples
-slight fallout on some shades.
Overall in my opinion one of the best sleek palettes.

This is a fantastic palette if you love dark smokey colours. All 12 shades have either a shimmer or satin finish and don't look frosty with the exception of the white highlight colour. The pigmentation of these shadows are amazing and are great value for money. The texture is pretty consistent with their soft buttery-like texture, but one of the shades let me down which is the second colour in the top row (peachy pink shade). This colour was sheer and seemed to be packed mostly with shimmer rather than pigment. Another thing I didn't like about the palette is the similarity in colours. If I labelled the shadows in the top row 1-6 and second row 7-12, these are the shades I'm talking about: 3-6, 7-8 and 10-12. The colours look very similar in the pan and pretty much identical on my skin. It's not a huge problem, but wish that there could have been a bit more variety. My fav colour is the jewel-toned purple shade (shade 12) which is very vibrant and looks great against brown eyes. When used with a primer, these last all night.

I waivered about buying this palette thinking "How many silver/gray eyeshadows can one woman need?" But I am glad I bought this palette! It was part of a lot with 2 other palettes and other Sleek stuff on ebay. There isn't as much variety in shade as with other Sleek palettes, but I love the shadows that are in it. There is a lovely midnight blue, pretty purples and several shades of silver and gray. The second shade from the left is my favorite of the two highlight shades. I've gotten lots of compliments already.

If you love smokey eyes then the Graphite palette is a must. The palette contains 12 super pigmented(so pigmented that they can't be removed completely without makeup remover), frosted( but not unwearable) shadows that blend easily. In the first row from left to right, there's your standard white highlight shade that great for inner corners and gives a glowing, ethereal look. A pale peached pink which reminds me of MAC Jest..also perfect for highlighting, a light shade that applies much like UD Vapor, a slightly darker silver that has a touch of black to it, yet another silver with yet more black added so that it is darker than the one before, and a newsprint shade that's a mix of black and gray but it leans more toward gray. The 2nd row from left to right: the first 3 shades in this row are variations of black. The first is a black with a silver sheen, the 2nd is a black with a slight golden sheen, the 3rd is a deep dark inky black that rivals UD Zero or MAC Carbon. The 4th shade is black with a purpley cobalt sheen, and the final 2 shades are both gorgeous shades of purple with the first having a black base to it and the 2nd being a more intense, vivid purple. Shadows come in a black, mirrored compact with dual ended sponge tipped applicator.This particular palette was LE and is no longer available through Sleekmakeup.com though Sleek palettes generally retail for $10.00 US. A word of caution for all Sleek palettes. These shadows are very soft and as a result, there's a 50/50 chance you will receive at least 1 causality when it's shipped to you. This could be remedied, however, if some sort of cushioning is placed in the palette(ie.paper towels, etc).

These eyeshadows are so pigmented! I usually have to use a eyeshadow primer to even get a half-decent colour but i don't have to use any with these. The only cons are that alot of the eyeshadows in the palette are very similar, would of been nice to have abit more variation and the other con is that it was limited edition! Boo! Get it while you can off ebay etc :] x

Not only are the eye shadows are pigmented and easy to work with but the packaging is divine and sturdy, not any of that flimsy plastic packaging we get here for drugstore products in the states.

Absolutely must have for smokey eyes! I also have the Original palette, but I love Graphite so much more. The colors are amazing! Blendable, smooth, pigmented. A great palette and it's not even that expensive =) a must have!

IF I ONLY COULD (buy this again).
It's a limited edition sleek palette - get it on ebay while you can! originally retailing at GBP 5 or 6, I got it for about triple the price plus shipping. still so worth it!
A number of light and dark grey and 2 purple shades, two highlights and one black.
Someone said the black is better to MAC's black.
It is great for sure. Pigmentation, staying power, blendability of these shadows is OUTSTANDING. they're very soft, mineralized, therefore prone to crumbling if you drop them. Amazing brand, amazing palettes!
EDIT: I bought a back-up on ebay for a great price. so for people mourning they have not gotten one of these - check ebay. and be quick :)

OMG WOW! This palette is so awesome for creating a smoky eye. The quality is superb and the colors are highly pigmented. The price is SO reasonable too!
Age: 19-24 Skin: Acne-prone, Fair, Cool Hair: Blond, Wavy, Coarse Eyes: Green
Excellent quality and 12 shades for under £5?
Some of the colours are a little too similar for my liking, but this is a small complaint on an otherwise lovely palette.
You get two highlighters, some great all over bases and lovely dark crease shades. Very generous and good quality mirror in the sophisticated matte black packaging.
Great shimmery colours in the usual silky smooth Sleek formula.
Money well spent :)
