Review: Sleek Makeup Goodnight Sweetheart Eyeshadow Palette

 

sleek-makeup-goodnight-sweetheart-eyeshadow-palette-2

A while ago Sleek Makeup released the Goodnight Sweetheart i-Divine eyeshadow palette. Then it disappeared for a while before I managed to get it, but it popped back up in the Boots online store so I had to get it. It has twelve eyeshadows in a mix of finishes, with six shimmers, two mattes, three duochrome and one that’s somewhere between a matte, satin and duochrome. As with all i-Divine palettes it costs £8.99, though I’m not sure how long this one will be around so maybe check it out as soon as possible if you think you’re interested.

The colours are inspired by vintage fashion and makeup looks, mainly smoky colours and muted purples. Goodnight Sweetheart was a song in the UK in 1931, which is what I thought of when I saw the name, along with a TV show in the nineties that had some parts in the 1940s and used that as the theme song, so it makes me think of the 30s or 40s looks.

Review: Sleek Makeup Dream a Little Dream i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette

Sleek-Makeup-Dream-a-Little-Dream-eyeshadow-palette-1

I bought three Sleek Makeup eyeshadow palettes recently and have been playing around with them for the last month, this Dream a Little Dream i-Divine palette is one of them. It’s the most recent of the Limited Edition palettes though I’m not sure how limited it will be, some of the ‘limited edition’ ones are there from over a year ago whereas others disappear quickly so if you’re interested in this palette and you can get it then I’d suggest you do it as soon as you can in case it disappears.

As with all Sleek i-Divine palettes it has twelve mineral based eyeshadows in it and cost £8.99 on the Sleek website. I can’t find an official description on what the exact combination for this one is but I’d say all of them are a shimmer of some kind. Six of them I’d call standard shimmers, four obvious duochromes (one of these with glitter in a fairly matte base), a silver foil finish and one that’s a shimmer base with fairly bit glitter particles in it. The colours are so pretty and all cool toned pastels, mainly in the blues, silvers and purples with a green and two cool toned pinks mixed in there.

Sleek Makeup Mini Haul

sleek-makeup-palette-haul-1

It feels a bit like most of my posts recently have been hauls but this is probably the last for a while and one I’ve had planned for ages. I’ve had my eye on a few of the Sleek I-Divine eyeshadow palettes for a while and did plan on buying four, but the main one I actually wanted (Peach Perfect) was out of stock and off the website so I wanted to do this order before the rest disappeared too as they’re all limited editions. There will be proper reviews of these in the fairly near future when I’ve had a chance to play around with them but I wanted to show you guys how pretty they are in case they do a disappearing act too before I have a chance!

In a recent declutter I realised that, although I have many palettes and more than I actually need, I did have some gaps in the colours I had. Last spring I was loving their All the Fun of the Fair palette full of shimmery pastels and I really wanted some more pastels to add to my collection. The Nordic Skies palette was around last year and I thought I’d missed it but it appeared back in stock so I got it along with the Spirit Animal and Dream a Little Dream palettes. I also ended up buying their light eyebrow kit so now I’ve gone from having no eyebrow colour product to two. I’ll have to give it a go and see how it compares to the NYX one I got in my recent HQ Hair Haul and get back to you guys with what I find.

Review: Sleek Makeup Gleaming in Gold i-Divine Eyeshadow palette

sleek-makeup-gleaming-in-gold-eyeshadow-palette-1

This eyeshadow palette review may be shorter than my normal ones, which might be a good thing! The Sleek Makeup i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in Gleaming Gold was a limited edition palette and I’m pretty sure it was available exclusively in some of the 2017 Sleek Christmas gift sets, though I have seen it popping up on eBay so it may be available if you’re lucky on there.

There are twelve eyeshadows in this palette and it’s the standard Sleek Makeup layout with the twelve round pans and a large mirror. They’re all shimmer this time and a range of golden based colours, from an orangey copper to a light champagne colour. There isn’t an official price for this but, going by the cost of other Sleek palettes, I’d guess it’s around £8.99. Looking at this, as first impressions, it seemed like this is one of those palettes you use with another, as everything is shimmery and sparkly, I was expecting to use it now and then and dip into it for a gold colour to add to a look.

Review: Sleek Makeup i-Divine Diamond Decade Eyeshadow Palette

sleek-i-divine-diamond-decape-palette-1Last year Sleek Makeup celebrated their tenth birthday and released their Diamond Decade i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette with a mix of silvers, blacks and pinks. They say that the pink is their signature but, for me, when I think of the old Sleek palettes back when I first started buying them the matte black is the thing that stood out for me as being above the competition. It wasn’t always the best but I have a couple of the early palettes where the black is better than any others I’ve tried so I was happy to see a matte black included. You can find it on the Boots and Sleek websites for £8.99.

There are twelve eyeshadows in this and there’s a mix of finishes with two that I would call true matte, one that’s almost matte but has a duochrome hint to it and eight that are shimmers of various descriptions (though one is a matte base with glitter in really). The palette sort of has three sections of colour with four pinks, four silvers and four blacks, though one of the silvers is more gunmetal. It’s definitely an unusual mix of colours to me and not one I’d really go for normally.

Review: Sleek MakeUP Forces of Nature I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette

forceofnature1

I bought the Sleek Force of Nature eyeshadow palette a while ago, though it seems like it was released late last year and I somehow managed to miss it at the time. It does say it’s limited edition but I have found it still on the Superdrug website, here, so if you like the look of it I’d get it as soon as possible as you never know when they’ll disappear with it being Limited Edition and not exactly recently released.

Sleek i-Divine palettes are mineral eyeshadow palettes and have 12 eyeshadows in them, each is 1.1g (0.03 oz.) and they do a large range of colours and finishes. This Force of Nature palette has all twelve as mattes and in autumnal colours with quite a few neutrals, purples and a dark green and blue. As a brand Sleek are cruelty free but I’m not sure if this one is suitable for vegans so if you only buy vegan products I’d look at the ingredients (I’ve photographed it and it’s below the cut if you want to check). This palette costs £8.99 which makes it one of their more expensive palettes, I’m not sure why some are £7.99 and others this price but it’s still a good price for twelve eyeshadows.

Review: Sleek Makeup All the Fun of the Fair i-Divine Palette

allthefunofthefair1

Sleek recently released a collection for summer called the Whimsical Wonderland collection which is limited edition. I think it was released at the beginning of June some time here in the UK and includes an eyeshadow palette, three Lip VIP semi-matte lipsticks and three gel blushes. I got the three Lip VIPs (find my post here), the palette and one of the gel blushes (that post is here) and this post is a review of the palette, the others will be up next week if you want to check back and read them.

The palette itself is called All the Fun of the Fair and is a mix of matte and shimmers in pastel colours which gives a great range of light, summery shades to choose from. This twelve shade mineral eyeshadow palette is split fifty fifty with six mattes and six shimmers. It costs £8.99 and, at the moment, is in an offer of two for £10 on the Superdrug website. At the moment I can only find it on the Superdrug site or the Sleek Makeup website though I think it will probably be available in Boots as I can’t see anything calling it exclusive to those two.

Review: The Original Sleek i-Divine Palette

originalsleek1

I realised that, when going through my palettes to review, I have done quite a few Sleek palette reviews but haven’t done one yet on the Original. I have had this one for years and I know that the packaging itself has changed but I checked and the formula is still the same (as far as I could find) so I thought I’d do a post on it today. I bought this not long after the Storm palette came out so it’s been a few years and it’s still the same quality as when I first got it. One of the reasons I bought this palette was that Sleek don’t test on animals, this particular palette is suitable for vegetarians but not vegans.

This palette has twelve 1.1g pans of eyeshadow with eleven of them being shimmers and one matte. There’s a wide range of colours, I don’t think there’s any particular colour theme, it’s mainly brights on the top row with blues, greens and purples and the bottom row being more neutrals with an olive green in there too. It costs £8.99 and can be found on the Boots website or the Sleek Makeup website. Most Sleek palettes are also available from Superdrug but I couldn’t find it on their site, it’s probably in stores if your local has a Sleek section as it seems to be in the ones I’ve been in most of the time, the same with Boots stores.

Review: Sleek Makeup Oh So Special i-Divine Palette

ohsospecial1

Today’s review is of another Sleek palette, I seem to have quite a few I haven’t actually posted about yet and this is another in the permanent line, as far as I know, the Oh So Special palette. This is one of the more recent ones I have bought though it’s been out for a while. This can be bought from a few places and costs £7.99 in Boots and the Sleek website itself, which seems to be down at the moment, and £8.99 on the Superdrug website.

It’s a fairly neutral based palette leaning towards peaches and pinks rather than the cooler tones and there’s a range of finishes. There are seven mattes and five shimmers including one obvious duochrome finish. I think this is the most mattes I have seen in a palette that isn’t exclusively matte colours so it’s a bit different to any other that I own.

Review: Sleek Makeup Enchanted Forest i-Divine Palette

enchantedforest1

Fairly recently I bought a few Sleek eyeshadow palettes, this Enchanted Forest palette was one of them. At the time it was labelled as limited edition but it seems like it may be a permanent product as that isn’t in the title any more but in case it’s going to disappear I thought it would be the first of my eyeshadow palettes to review. I am going through my collection and reviewing ones still on sale, I did start it last year but got sidetracked by other things so I’m starting it up again and they’ll probably be on Friday nights for a while.

The Enchanted Forest palette has a combination of matte and shimmer shades; four mattes, seven shimmers and one that seems to be a shimmer in the pan but turns out more matte so it’s somewhere in between. There are twelve shadows altogether and they are mainly in dark blues, purples and greens with some more neutral colours mixed in there with browns, some coppery tones and a cream. It costs £7.99 and is available from the Sleek website itself, the Boots website and Superdrug. I have seen them in Boots stores but I haven’t seen it in a physical Superdrug store near me.
