I am a little disappointed. I really, really wanted to love this palette.
I mean what's not to love a full palette of mattes from a brand known for great pigmentation. I was excited to try this. I had wanted to try Sleek palettes for ages. I had decided on the Bad Girl palette but then I saw this and decided to go for this one first instead.
Now don't get me wrong I think the brand is great and I do think the pigmentation is good and yes I expect fall out as you do with mineral eyeshadows and Sleek in general.
Lets show you the colour swatches.
5.Dune, 6. Pillow Talk (please excuse my bad psoriasis skin in these pictures having a bad month of it atm) Now I swatched these over a primer an elf basic one.
As you can see they do have a decent colour but the top row in this palette I feel is a little patchy and the off white colour called 'pillow talk' is so chalky you may as well use chalk.
The second row.
That is all very well and good but my main problem with the palette is its stiffness. They are such annoying shadows to blend.
Here is a picture of those three smoothest colours blended.
I do think this palette has its place as I said I am not a novice with eyeshadows so I think I will find some uses for it . Perhaps if I need to pack an intense colour on the main part of the lid which will not require as much blending. The Dune colour also works OK as an eyebrow highlight to a smoky eye.
I am just a bit dissapointed overall as I have almost only heard good things about the Sleek Palettes and I had waited ages to get one of these. Perhaps the Matte V1 is better?
I will still buy the Bad Girl palette as I am hopeful that the formula in them is a little better than this one. Have any of you tried this? what did you think? which ones would you recommend? The palettes are available at the Sleek website and some Superdrugs.
