REVIEW: Sleek Makeup i-Divine Palette - Acid





What is this Product? (What it claims)
  • The Acid i-Divine Palette contains a fusion of vibrant colours for the more daring, with bright pinks to luminous greens amongst the 12 highly-pigmented pressed mineral-based eyeshadow shades. This palette combines matte and shimmer formulations with neon and complimentary shades that keep their vibrancy on all skin tones.
  • The velvet-touch consistency gives full and shimmering coverage to the eye lid for maximum effect. Each shade can be applied alone for a dramatic effect or mixed to create a personalised look.
  • Best applied with the applicator enclosed.
Directions of Use
  • For Shimmer eyeshadows, a primer is not necessary to bring out the colors to full potential. 
  • For Matte eyeshadows, I strongly recommend a primer or a cream white eyeshadow as a base. It truly help bring all the vivid colors out.

Price: 
Although this was from a beauty swap and I'm not entirely sure how much it is. I tried to go on many reviews to check the prices.
£5.99 at Superdrug (UK drugstore) They often have promotions such as Buy 2 Get 1 Free.
You can also purchase it on their website for $10USD + international shipping = about $25USD



All swatches here were done on my bare skin without any primers or creams. I did have to rub a few times on some of the colors to get this color payoff. You can see from the above picture that the hot pink, neon green and white are quite chalky.

Review:
Thank you to Yinnie from http://looking-glass-beauty.blogspot.com/. It was 1 of the 3 palettes I got from our beauty swap back in here. Thank you so much because otherwise I wouldn't be able to try the brand or the products firsthand. Sleek Makeup is an affordable cosmetic brand based in London and can be easily purchased in the United Kingdom in the drugstore - Superdrug. They only recently began selling via their online website.

The Acid i-Divine Palette is part of the permanent line of eyeshadow palettes. It mainly consists of matte and neon colors plus 4 shimmer/metallic colors. I really like this color combination because it's different from all the palettes I own and bright colors are definitely the IT thing for this spring!

I find that the shimmer shadows are extremely pigmented and easy to blend. While, the matte and neon colors tend to be chalky. They are not as easy to blend and often, I need to pat the colors on instead of sweeping the colors on with my brush. A primer or cream eyeshadow base is strongly recommended for the matte or neon colors. It will also be helpful if you wet your brush a bit to apply the matte/neon colors on.

The size of these palettes are actually a lot smaller than I always thought because I only saw them in blog photos before. The actual size is really about the size of an adult's hand or about 3cm larger than the iPhone. Also, I have seen people's palettes arrived all shattered because the package itself is thin. I find that their plastic wrapper is much prettier than the actual plastic palette, so I ended up keeping all of them. :)

Overall, I really enjoyed this palette. I love these vivid colors. Although, I can't use this palette as often as I wished but they are something I'm very happy to have in my make up collection. I look doing crazy make up looks every now and then!

Thank you Yinnie!!

Price: 5/5 ♥ Really affordable price for such high quality eyeshadows. Especally when these colors are not common or easily found in drugstores.
