Sleek Makeup iDivine Sparkle Review & Swatches

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

Hi ladies!!
Here's my review of the iDivine Sparkle palette by Sleek MakeUp, as promised in my YouTube video review.


I've received this palette instead of the Bad Girl palette I had ordered three weeks ago during the 50% off sale.
At first I was a bit disappointed as I thought I wouldn't like it, however after seeing it I changed my mind!

Review: The palette has got 12 eyeshadows, 9 of them are matte with sparkling glitters, one (Noir) is matte, two are satin (silver and gold). I like the packaging of the iDivines as it's compact and...sleek! LOL! Moreover there's a huge mirror very useful if you're traveling.
These eyeshadows are super pigmented and the texture is very creamy and soft! The only "powdery" shades are the satin ones, gold and silver...This palette is LE and as long as I know it's the only one with eyeshadows names. The quality of this product is very good indeed, especially for the price! 8,50€.

When applied dry and BLENDED the sparkling eyeshadow loose almost all the glitters, so if you were scared by the sparkling effect, don't worry, as they'll result as matte e/s with some sparse glitters. However, if applied wet, these eyeshadows maintain all their glitters, so if you look for a more sparkling and shimmering look that's the right way to use them.

The swatches show the eyeshadows applied dry, BUT UNblended to show you the difference between the sparkling and the satin shades...

Overall: this palette is really good if you want:
+ smokey eyes and dramatic looks (dry eyeshadows)
+ smokey eyes plus a sparkling effect with wet eyeshadows
+ if you like dark eyeshadows

These eyeshadows:
+ are highly pigmented
+ have great texture and blend really well

- some of them are a bit too powdery

Skip this palette if:
- you don't like dark colors
- you hate glitters/sparkles

That's all for now! I hope this review was useful! Have you tried this palette? Let me know!
Besitoss!!





PS: Review and swatches with comparison/dupes of the Blushes is coming soon! Stay tuned ;) Besitoss!!
