Here are swatches of the new Sleek Sparkle 2 i-Divine Palette, the brand’s offering for Holiday 2012.
I was quite taken with my press sample when I first laid eyes on it – the palette is a beauty at first glance, the glitter in the pans twinkling merrily under the lights.
Sparkle 2 i-Divine includes 12 shades, with four shimmer shades in gold, silver, copper and deep bronze to leave a glowing finish for day time eyes.
Step up the look at night with eight glitter infused shades, a festive blend of deep royal blues, precious purples, fern greens and burgundys, with gun metal greys and an icy black for extra depth.
– Sleek MakeUP
Unlike last year’s predominantly smokey combination, this year’s palette has a nice mix of colours ranging from dark to mid-toned to bright.
In it are:
- Chocolate Penny
- Blue Spruce
- Mulled Wine
- Gold Ribbon
- Glitz & Glamour
- Starry Night
Swatched dry, they vary in colour payoff, as you can see. The glitter, though eye-catching in the pans, is quite extraneous as it tends to fall out and go on unevenly.
Over a good eyeshadow base, the colours pop easily. (I used Make Up For Ever Eye Prime for the swatches above.)
This limited edition palette retails at £7.99/US$9.99 and will be available on the Sleek website from 3 December 2012 and will launch 2 days later at Superdrug stores in the UK.
