Product Review - Sleek: I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in Storm, Plus Swatches

The Sleek Makeup company operates out of London and has several products that are staples in many women and men's collections. I will be reviewing the I -Divine Eyeshadow Palette in Storm, complete with swatches, and pictures of how the product wears on the eyes. The Storm palette is one of 12 in the I-Divine series. These eyeshadows are mineral based, formulated to be long lasting and pigmented without producing a ton of fall out. The website states, "Storm contains shimmery neutral pinks and beiges perfect for day looks and gorgeous shades of dark blue, green and copper for elegant evening looks. This palette is perfect to take your look from natural to bold." The palettes are $10.49

I have heard great things about Sleek products but never had the opportunity to test and review any of their items. The I-Divine Storm is my first opportunity to swatch, test and wear, and review this brands product. For my test and wear look, I laid down an eyeshadow primer (Milani Eyeshadow Primer) and used Sacha Buttercup Powder to set my eyelids. I took "Calm Before the Storm" in my crease and worked it in slowly, back and forth. The shadow was noticeably pigmented and blended very well. I then darkened the crease using, "Eye of the Storm." Both shadows are fantastic transition shades and created an excellent neutral color in the crease. I decided that I wanted to test out two of the shimmer shades and after darkening the outer v with "Eye of the Storm" I popped "Sand Storm" on my right eye lid and "Dust Storm" on my left eye lid (see pictures below).

The shadows wore well throughout the day, with minimal fading and the pops of color stay vibrant and visible well into the 8th hour. I was extremely impressed with this palette and would highly recommend it to other makeup enthusiasts. The reasons are below:

  1. Afforable
  2. Many palette options to choose from
  3. When worn with an eyeshadow primer, the shadows last 8 hour plus
  4. Accessible - you may purchase these palettes directly from Sleek or even Amazon
