If you are into bright and bold shades then you just have to get the new Sleek Makeup I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in Curacao, part of the summer LE Caribbean Collection. It contains 12 fun and vibrant eyeshadows with a tropical and holiday vibe. I also like that finally all the eyeshadows have names. Those in this palette are named after cocktails. I don’t drink but that, together with the fun shades, makes me feel like I’m on holiday. But let’s examine the shades one by one, shall we?
Green Martini: one of my favourite shades in this palette, it is a beautiful and very pigmented khaki green shade with golden shimmers. It is a bit powdery though.
Purple Haze: a pretty matte true purple.
Green Iguana: another favourite of mine (I just love greens lol), it’s a stunning teal green with a slight metallic finish.
Screwdriver: a bright lemon yellow.
Bloody Mary: a matte, true red eyeshadow with buildable pigmentation.
Blue Hawaiian: this is the only shade that disappointed me. A light blue shade, it is very sheer.
Martini: a subtle but pigmented champagne shade with a pearly finish that’s perfect for highlighting the browbone. I absolutely adore it.
Tequila Sunrise: a very pigmented and bright orange with a metallic finish. It is a bit powdery.
Apres Midori: a bright green with yellow undertones with a pearly finish.
Blue Lagoon: a pigmented and matte bright blue shade.
Singapore Sling: a bright fuchsia with a pearly finish.
Espresso Martini: a medium black shade with a matte finish.
All the eyeshadows, with the exception of Blue Hawaiian which is the only shade with poor pigmentation, are very pigmented. The matte eyeshadows are less pigmented than the others, but overall their color payoff is still very good. They are also very easy to apply and blend like a dream. A couple of shades are a bit powdery so a bit of fallout can occur but they are so pigmented, soft and easily blendable that I can easily ignore it. In addition, they are fairly longlasting on the lids, but if yours are oily I would still recommend wearing a primer underneath.
The palette comes in a pretty box with a boat and palm design which just captures the Caribbean theme of the collection really well, don’t you think? I also like that the palette, which comes with a huge mirror and a dual-ended sponge applicator, has its name written both on its top and bottom so you can easily spot it among your other Sleek Makeup palettes. 🙂

Apart from Blue Hawaiian, all the shades are very pigmented (the matte shades slightly less than the rest), soft, easily blendable and longlasting. A couple of them are a bit powdery and prone to fallout but nothing major. A great buy for those that are into bright eyeshadows while natural lovers may probably want to avoid it.
