|Sleek iDivine Ultra Matts v1 (Brights)|
This palette, as with all Sleek eyeshadow palettes, features twelve shadows, all (in this instance) matte. All are very pigmented. All work well over primer or on their own. All work well dry and wet. Again, as with the Darks palette, I was a bit disappointed in the formula as I felt that all of these matte shades are a little "chalky" and a little more difficult to blend than (a) shades from other Sleek palettes (b) other eyeshadows I have.
I will reiterate what I said in the last review - "Difficult" does not mean impossible! In Part I (Darks palette), you'll find a trick for getting around hard-to-blend eyeshadows.
|Sleek Ultra Mattes v1 (Brights) - Swatches|
The shades are, left-right:
Top row: Chill, Pout, Sugarlite, Dragon Fly, Pucker, Bamm!
Bottom row: Cricket, Bolt, Strike, Floss, Crete, Pow!
Chill is a light minty blue
Pout is a hot pink
Sugarlite is a fuschia
Dragon Fly is a medium-dark mint green, it looks a little darker in real life
Pucker is another hot pink. When working with these I could see very little difference between Pout and Pucker; Pucker is more pigmented, slightly brighter and cleaner, and was a little easier to use
Bamm! is a bright yellow
Cricket is a medium-light green
Bolt is a bright primary blue
Strike is a fantastically pigmented true orange
Floss is a baby pink; it is largely pointless unless you're going to be using it wet and as a contrast colour
Crete is showing up as a blue above, but it's a grey which has vague lavender undertones
Pow! is a very slight off-white white
Of the two matte palettes, I imagine the other one (Darks) is more useable, but at €9ish a pop, this is a good one to have - I imagine I'll probably use Pucker, Bamm!, Bolt, and Strike the most.
