Sleek i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in 'Sunset' Review

The other day I did the biggest online Sleek haul, and there is WAY too much to fit all in one post! 

The first thing I want to mention probably the brightest palette I have ever owned - The i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in 'Sunset'! This palette is only £8.99, and comes with 12 eyeshadows. 

The packaging is the black matte plastic Sleek normally does. It's pretty standard but it does the job: it's really really durable and all Sleek palettes travel amazingly which is much more important to me than any packaging!

These are all of the shades close up. It's annoying Sleek don't name their eyeshadows which would make them easier to talk about, but obviously, that doesn't affect the quality! I am always very sceptical when it comes to bright eyeshadows because they always look amazing in the pan, and come out much more sheer and disappointing when you actually use them.. 

However this is the complete opposite, I am really really impressed! The shadows are so thick and pigmented, they are almost like buttercream. You can see from the swatches below that they are so so bright. Apart from the matte black, they are all extremely glittery. I absolutely love that in eyeshadows so it's perfect for me! The colours are also so long lasting, I can get the train at 6am and my eyeshadow is still perfect by the evening!

I have honestly used this palette to death since I bought it! Admittedly, I barely (if ever) use the bright blue, yellow and orange - however, I know they will be perfect if I ever need those colours for fancy dress or a crazy look. For less than £9 I don't mind not using every single colour in the palette!

I have been using the dark purple/berry tones constantly - especially now it's autumn. My go-to look these days is a dark plum eye with the darkest purple colour in the palette all over the lid, and Mac's Heritage Rouge pigment through the crease.

Have you ever tried Sleek's eyeshadows? What do you think?
