Sleek Ultra Mattes V1 Palette 

Hello my friends :). I hope you all had an amazing spring break! And for the spring time, I would like to bring back those bright neon colors in your makeup routine.

Here is a review of my Sleek ultra mattes V1 palette. It is also basically a first impression since I literally just opened this package and tried it out :).

I will show yall some swatches, and then show you a list of my pros and cons. ūüôā

 

All matte shades..(I double checked :p)

Here is a light blue, light red, purple, green, light red/pink, and yellow

Here is a light green, dark blue, orange, and the last three are hard to see, but they are a light pink, silver, and white.

PROS:

Blend smoothly and feel soft despite being matte shadows

Very affordable ($12.49)

Compact case perfect for travelling

Great pigmentation

Can create a lot of looks with these colors

Comes with a mirror

Mattes are great for hooded lids

CONS: 

The pink and silver are the least pigmented

There are two shadows that seem almost identical (the red/pink colors)

You must use a white primer/base to get the full color payoff

There are no neutral colors for transition colors or to create smoky looks and daytime looks

Overall, I love this palette, and it reminds me of the sugar pill palettes (burning heart, heart breaker, sweetheart) .

Check out the youtube video below to see my review and the look I created with this palette :).

Sleek i-Divine Palettes

I love getting makeup. I love it even more when they arrive a month earlier than expected. And that’s exactly what happened to me with these palettes! I got them in the mail today. but wasn’t supposed to get them until about February 22nd. They come from the UK, so if you plan on purchasing any sleek products soon, expect to wait. or maybe you will get lucky¬†like me and get them¬†as a surprise super early!

So the palettes I got today were the Oh So Special, and the Sunset palette. the packaging is a little smaller than I thought, but I like it because I originally bought these palettes because they were small enough to be carried around. They are about the length of your hand, and super lightweight. The packaging also feels very secure. But the plastic catches dirt and makeup a lot so I already kept getting mine dirty :P.

So let’s start with the Oh So Special palette. Very beautiful, neutral, smoky colors. There’s a mix of shimmers and mattes. Shimmers being organza, gift basket, glitz, celebrate, and gateau. The mattes are bow, ribbon, pamper, boxed, wrapped up, and¬†noir. I’m a matte gal, so this was a big deal to me to have a palette that was so versatile with the colors, and could¬†double as a day/evening palette.

Next is the Sunset palette. My favorite :).  All the colors are shimmers, except for the matte black. These colors are just so amazing. Vibrant, rich, and would go good with any eye color. I actually think that these colors glide on better than the Oh So Special palette shadows do. Probably just because this palette is shimmery, and shimmers go on a lot easier than matte shadows. Mostly because matte shadows can be more dry than others.  Left pic is top row, right pic is bottom.

Overall, I love these palettes and will definitely be purchasing from Sleek again. This is my first Sleek purchase, and I’m so¬† glad it was a good experience. Let me know of your favorite Sleek palettes or other products :). Thanks for reading!
