I seriously cannot contain my excitement! I'm supposed to post my review on Caudalie Paris Vinoperfect Night Correcting Cream tonight but I decided to post it tomorrow instead because of this one. That's how excited I am. Anyway, a surprise came in the mail today though I was expecting to receive it tomorrow - and it's my Sleek Divine Mineral Based Eyeshadow Palette in Bad Girl! I was choosing between the Original Palette and this one but I figured that the former has more neutral shades that I am not into so it then became an easy decision for me. So without further adieu, I present to you Bad Girl.
It is indeed sleek. The packaging is very minimalist - a black matte non-rubberized compact.
I literally gasped when I opened the palette as the 12 colours are just as gorgeous as I expected them to be. I also like how the protective film has all the shades written on it.
|First Row (L-R): Innocence, Gullible, Blade, Gun Metal, Underground, Noir|
Second Row (L-R): Intoxicated, Envy, Obnoxious, Abyss, Twilight, Rebel
Swatches with base
I played with the palette right away, before my mom even took the palette and tried it on herself. XD
I used the following shades: Innocence (to highlight inner corners and
brow bones); Gullible (as base applied all over the lids);
Abyss (outer half, crease); and Envy (to line upper lash lines)
I like this palette and I'm planning to try out other palettes too. Maybe I'd try Original next since I am satisfied with this one. They are pigmented, non-chalky and not powdery either, creamy, and blends easily. I also have my eyes set on the lippies and a couple of blushes. I hope Digital Traincase stocks up on her Sleek palettes so a lot of us can finally try these much-raved palettes. Expect to see more EOTDs since I now have more colours to play with.
How about you? Have you tried Sleek palettes? What are your favorites?
Happy Tuesday, super awesome peeps! :P
