Not An Indie Review- Sleek’s iDivine palette in Ultra Matte v1

It’s true- I own makeup that isn’t from indie brands. I haven’t been using it too much recently, though, especially the eyeshadows. After all, I am a lady who is taken with bright colours, and I find a lot of brands, especially ones I can get here, where I only have a drugstore, tend to be lacking in that department. And if I’m ordering something in without the ability to swatch it beforehand, I might as well get it from an indie brand and support the little guy. Anyhow, I got this palette from a makeup exchange and figured I might as well give it a try, since the colours looked so nice.

The packaging!

Sleek is one of those brands I can’t get here, which is kind of a pity, because I want more impulse buys to happen. The palette is matte black, with a shiny logo on the front. I do like black things, although this is a bit prone to smudgy primer fingers. Or chips fingers. Don’t judge me.

Pretty colours!

Look at those colours! As someone who lusts after Sugarpill on a regular basis, this palette was something I had to have. They’re all matte, of course, and each pan is about the size of a quarter.

So, here’s my arm. As you can see, even dry, these are pretty pigmented shadows. While the light pink and the cream are kind of questionable, the rest are great.

And once I swatched them over NYX Milk, the colours really stood out. While I don’t have any Sugarpill to compare it to, this will undoubtedly be a fine substitute.

And here is my face.

I did this rainbow cut crease thing because there is nothing else going on in my life.

Overall, I would highly recommend this palette. It’s got nice quality shadows, they blend well, they’re quite pigmented, and it’s something like 9.99, I think. That is not too shabby.
