Sleek MakeUP i-Divine Ultra Mattes V1 Brights

Bright make-up doesn't have to be loud!

My post on this may be over a week late but I first broke the news to you in this blog post that Sleek were to launch two new palettes, purely consisting of a matte texture.

I was sent the V1 Brights palette. At first I looked at these colours and thought 'Wow!!' they do take you a back in all it's bright glory and you may wonder what could you do with them now if your not very adventurous it is possible to get a look out of this that can look - mild and everyday wearable.



TOP ROW : CHILL · POUT · SUGARLITE ·  DRAGON FLY ·   PUCKER ·  BAMMI
BOTTOM ROW : CRICKET ·   BOIT ·   STRIKE ·   FLOSS ·  CRETE ·  POW!


I have to just point out it's hard for me to find ANY yellow eyeshadow that appears well on my skin..as bright as I want it...this yellow swatch so far has made me fall in love.

First 6 swatches were done on top of UPP - Eden the others were done on top of a concealer.

One thing you may have noticed that's different with the palette is the way the shadows themselves are presented. Sleek always previously had the criss cross "wafer" effect to them :

This is the 'Au Naturel' palette

Without them it does make the eyeshadow feel softer and the brush does glide over them - not that it didn't before mind. Just I know some people like myself can be quite anal regarding 'change' with designs on some products. It was something I noticed first off but I can deal with it.

Colour pay off - of course with Sleek as always is a winner and for a drug store brand it once again holds their own against others and high end brands!!

- Now I need to get my hands on the dark version next week - clear winner in my book - any chance of a nude matte palette maybe?!

Now onto the look I done using mostly Sleek products :

I really want the ultra mattes palette! I think I am definitely going to have to add it to my wish list. Unfortunately, although the brights palette looks stunning, I very rarely wear bright colours anymore. Stunning photos btw, you look lovely xo

You can order from their official website, too, opposed to just finding them in Superdrug :) xo

oh my goodness! I love the bright palette, but I don't suit bright colours on my eyes - it makes them even smaller than they already are! But I really wish I could wear more colourful eye shadows, I'd buy that in an instant! I'm so drawn to colourful things x

LaaLaa Monroe said...

I am too. They are such a good investment and I believe you will love the pigmentation in these. Yay aw thanks so much lovely

LaaLaa Monroe said...

That's such a shame :( I sometimes myself can be scared of bright colours cos I don't want a clown look happening lol. Such a pretty palette to have in the drawer x

What's the difference between the 2 pink ones?

"Pout" is more of a hot pink than "Pucker" xo
