The same friend who’d helped me purchase items from the Topshop Heavy Duty Collection also picked up a couple of Sleek Makeup I-Divine Eyeshadow Palettes for me. At only £5.99 each (about S$12.80), these palettes of 12 eyeshadow pans are certainly value for money. She’d found them at Superdrug in London and was astounded that they’d been wiped off the shelves, save for a few. I’m not surprised that the plastic packaging was a little ratty, what with the rush for these affordable compacts but everything was pristine inside.
The compacts are as their name indicates – sleek. :) The exterior actually reminds me of MAC Pro Palettes.
The interior looks a little cheap though – I’m not fond of the waffle hetchmarks of the eyeshadows.
That said, the shadows are very pigmented. Made in China, their intensity and finish remind me of the Manly 120 Palette. The latter is slightly denser in texture though.
I only swatched The Original, as I’m not sure about Storm yet. See how vibrant the colours are? Aside from the satin black, all the shades are shimmery, with some bordering on frosty. They will be wonderful for vibrant eyes!
