I have my friend Anastasia to thank for introducing me to Sleek Makeup by the lovely Anastasia. She kept raving about their palettes non-stop (and she’s not usually the kind to rave about anything), I knew I had to get one.
My first foray into the brand was the Sleek I-Divine Original Eyeshadow Palette. Makes sense to start with their first palette, don’t you think?
But if these shades aren’t your cup of tea, fret not. There also are two more palettes available: Storm, a selection of neutral shimmery and matte shades, and Acid, a set of very bold and vibrant shades with both matte and shimmery finishes.
EDIT 2019: Sleek has expanded their palette range even more. It’s impossible now not to find something you’ll 100% love.
But let’s go back to Original…
Sleek I-Divine Original Palette contains 12 mineral-based eyeshadows. It has both neutral and colourful (but still very wearable) shades, all of which have a shimmery finish.
All the shades feel very soft to the touch, apply smoothly and are very easy to blend. But what blew me away is how pigmented they are. One coat packs a serious colour punch!
Best of all, none of these shades creased on my oily lids. They easily stayed put all day without any nasty surprises.
I dig the packaging, too. I find the black case sleek, classy and… useful. Unlike most palettes, it also has a large mirror you can actually use when you apply your makeup.
The palette also comes with a double-sponge applicator, but I prefer to use my brushes. I’m not a fan of sponge-tip applicators because they tend to soak up too much colour.
