I’m hoping to catch up on my eyeshadow swatching since I have so many lovelies to share with you. One of my favorites is SLEEK I-DIVINE EYESHADOW PALETTE in STORM which is one of 15 palettes ($11.99) available. (sent for review) This is a magnificent palette and I’m anxious to try out more of their eyeshadows.
By the time I got around to photographing the palette I’d already used it which is a no-no in the blogging world. But used or pristine, it’s still fabulous. STORM is a good name for the palette because it’s more like a stormy night than a sunny day. The colors are really striking.
The top row has the lightest shades and begins the darker ones. I love the names of the individual shadows.
SAND STORM is light rose gold metallic
SNOW STORM looks more gold in the palette but is actually a creamy white metallic
CALM BEFORE THE STORM is a caramel matte
THUNDER STORM is a golden metallic with a touch of touch of green
PERFECT STORM is a rose gold metallic that can look more pink
FIRESTORM is brown metallic with undertones of cranberry
On the bottom is where you see the shades that created the “storm”. My swatch shot shows Dust Storm at the top
DUST STORM is bronze metallic
GATHERING STORM is a beautiful denim metallic
STORM CLOUD is a charcoal metallic with tones of teal to brighten it up
ELECTRIC STORM is a navy metallic that has a touch of royal to it, gorgeous shade
EYE OF THE STORM is a chocolate matte shade
BLACKOUT is a black matte
There is a little fallout when applying these but it’s worth it to have such beautiful shades. Obviously I’m a fan of metallic shadows and those are getting a lot of use. The texture on all but Blackout is buttery soft. You almost want to pet them! Blackout is probably meant to be an eyeliner though it does work as a shadow, to get the intensity of my swatch picture you’d have to apply it with some pressure.
I am so excited about this palette and I use it all the time. I haven’t put it away yet since I’m always reaching for it. Plus when I realized that these shadows turn out to be $1 apiece it makes me want more SLEEK in my life.
If you haven’t indulged in SLEEK yet then save up for a haul from them now or after the holidays. You don’t want to miss out on this popular UK brand that is now available for the US. — Marcia
