Sleek i-Divine Garden of Eden patelle
Okay, as I’ve got good news about the Sleek’s i-Divine palettes, I am going to review the one I’ve currently got and, luckily, can continue using and enjoying.
It’s the Garden of Eden one.
One of the most controversial things about those palettes is the packaging. It is indeed sleek and well-designed, and the palettes have amazing mirrors the size of the lid. BUT, I’ve owned two of them and both eventually broke. It’s no big deal if you keep it at home, but still not a very pleasant thing.
As you can see, they are not very big.
Moving up to the shadows~
This is the way they look with a flash. As you can see, 7(first 4 in the first row and 3-5 in the second row) of 12 colours are shimmers, 2 (5 in 1st row, 1 in the 2nd one) and 3 remaining are matte.
This is the way they look without the flash. As it seems, they are a bit on more vibrant/warm side in person, but that might be just my screen
Swatches on bare skin, without flash, the shadows are pretty well-pigmented, especially for the price, and, which happens not very often, the dark colours are not just dark, but do have actual colour.
Same, with the flash.
I’ve bought the palette in June and enjoyed it greatly ever since. It stays on pretty well, especially considering that I never use any primers or bases - and my eyelids tend to be pretty oily. You would want to use one though if you go for a more vibrant look while having a really oily skin or being somewhere where it is very warm, although I wore the purples during the summer and they behave great.What I’ve got to mention is that the two sparkly ones tend to lose most of the glitter, which is something I am 100% okay with as I’m using them in neutral/natural looks, but some people might not like.
I would rate the palette 8/10. (mostly because the design of the packaging is great but the quality of it is disappointing).
