Review & Swatches: Sleek i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in Original

Sleek Makeup had insanely gained rave and love in the beauty industry picking up MAC. Sleek Makeup originated from UK become one of the most popular makeup for their good quality and reasonable price. Ever since I've been reading the raves online, I knew I should get them and now I owned my first Sleek palette which is back to Original!!
They say:
"The Original i-Divine palette contains a variety of highly-pigmented colours, ranging from green to purple, allowing you to create endless looks fit for day or night. The velvet-touch consistency gives full and shimmering coverage to the eye lid for maximum effect. Each of the 12 shades can be applied alone for a dramatic effect or mixed to create a personalised look"                           
The packaging is pretty "Sleek" matches with their brand name. It look shiny but it's plastic packaging doesn't attract dust or any fingerprints which makes them look cool. Besides, their packaging are very thinand compact. Absolutely suitable for travel purposes but mind you, it is very fragile.
Each palette contains 12 pressed mineral eyeshadows. And they're all pretty vibrant! This palette goes in UK under £5 which is why everyone is snatching them!!  I quite like the large mirror in the lid, but I think the dual-ended eyeshadow sponge applicator is not necessary though. I personally preferred an eyeshadow brush instead.

(Somehow if you noticed in their packaging, the palette is Made in China. Well, like most products are)

Texture and Swatches:

The palette contains 12 shadows colors which are soft and pigmented. Somehow I doesn't like the 'waffle' look on the shadow. It's just my personally opinion.

This Original palette comes with a wide range of colors from Black, Brown, Green, Purple to Pink. The colors are quite versetile. You may noticed there's a little cater on the eyeshadows which make the 'waffle' look disappear. That just shows how soft they are.

With muted flash
The colours are all vibrant and apply evenly. One swatches it look so pigmented and creamy on my hands. Most of the colors are shimmery except for black which is matte. As mentioned this palette is quite versite that you may creates a lot of different look with it.

Natural Light
Although when you swatches, the powder does fall-out easily but it glides on your skin feeling like cream eyeshadow instead. The powder are just way too soft and fragile to break. I was glad that my palette doesn't broke during shipping.

Above picture is my EOTD with Sleek Palette in Original after 6 hours with minimal smudging. I'm using the Purple, Pink and Highlight color on this. =)) The best thing about this palette is the shadow lasted me the whole day with eye primer!! I've yet to test it without primer, but it definitely plus point for Sleek.

 Rating: 4.5/5   I ❤ ❤ this!!

Now I understand why Sleek Makeup are highly raved!! Love how pigmented and smooth their eyeshadow colors are. Despite the fall-outs. No chalky feeling and bad smudging at all. It is definitely worth better than the price we pay.

If you have not yet to try any of the palettes, you may snag them on Sleek MakeUp online. Besides this Original palette, I actually bought Storm, Bad Girl and others too. (I'll review it soon)
