SLEEK MAKEUP | i-DIVINE Snapshots Eyeshadow Palette - Review + SwatchesWednesday, August 28, 2013
This bright and bold eye shadow palette from Sleek is the first product I have tried from the brand and boy, has it impressed! Sleek Makeup is a UK based brand and you can buy off the website here and they ship worldwide for very little postage, around $5 depending on the weight of the parcel. I was lucky to pick this up in a bulk lot of new make up I brought off Trade Me, but since using this I have ordered a few more things off the website, so expect some reviews when they arrive.
They have an amazing selection of eye shadow palettes; there are 13 different ones from the i-Divine range and they are prices at USD $9.99 - talk about amazing value for money! The one I received is called Snapshots 732, find it here.
I can't speak more highly of these eye shadows - they are super pigmented and they don't have that chalkiness which cheaper shadows tend to have. They blend well and have great staying power. I haven't ventured into using the super bright colours and tend to stick with the more neutral shades, but in the summer these will be perfect colours to play around with.
There are a total of 12 shadows, including 2 matte shades in Summer Breeze and Sand Walker. Washed Ashore, Purple Haze and Magenta Madness are almost matte and have a light shimmer through them. The rest are almost metallic in colour and are packed with shimmer - these seem to be more pigmented than the matte shades.

All in all, the Snapshots palette has a great mix of matte and shimmer, with bold bright colours as well as more muted neutrals, perfect for creating many different eye looks. And the price is fantastic! The other i-Divine palettes will suit any makeup lovers taste as there are so many options!
Stay tuned for more Sleek Makeup reviews in the future - seriously loving this brand and can't wait to try out some of their other products!
