Sleek Idivine Sunset Eye Shadow Palette Review

Although the Sleek idivine Sunset eye shadow palette has been out for awhile when I saw the swatches from this palette I had to add it to my collection as the colours are so vivid and beautiful.The concept of the palette are the colours of the sunset, sea and sand. All the shades are of a satin finish except the black which is matte. Black is always useful for definition and for smokey eyes. This was one of Sleek's earlier palettes where the shades don't have any names.

The colours are mostly warm shades with the exception of the cooler toned pink- the last colour on the bottom left. Both the peach and the pink have a gold shimmer.While this is a bright palette I think it's possible to create a more neutral look with the pink shades.The bright orange, russets and blue can create a bright summer look or paired with the black a smokey autumn leaves look or dark cranberry eye.

Peformance: All colours in the Sleek Idivine sunset eye shadow palette are smooth to apply without any fallout. The shades are extremely pigmented looking like brightly lit jewels and are long wearing.

Packaging: As usual the packaging is Sleek's standard black matte case, with a mirror but small enough for travel or a handbag. Perhaps because this a recent purchase of one of the older palettes the pans no longer sport the waffle design.

To sum up: Altogether I think Sleek's sunset palette is fairly versatile and with 12 mineral eye shadows it's good value for money. While the colours aren't typically 'classic/traditional' this one of the standout palettes from Sleek's Idivine palettes. All the pans are excellently pigmented and of good quality-it's a keeper.

  1. This is so beautiful. I don't think the pictures on the websites (sleek, boots & Superdrug) do it justice as it looks a bit dull whereas looking at it here it is obviously anything but. Think they need to use your pictures to market it instead. Need to get this. Like ASAP!

    1. Thanks thats a lovely thing to say- yes the shadows are beautiful, richly pigmented and v good value!
