Sleek Bad Girl i-divine Eyeshadow Palette ($9.99) available at Sleekmakeup.comI don’t use dark shades much as I prefer shimmery peaches, light baby pink, purples ,corals, sea green, aqua blues for me. However, this palette is different as it has darker shades ranging from gunmetal grey to matte black to one of the darkest ink blue shade I have ever seen. I bought this palette as I don’t have many darker shades.
Packaging – Sleek eye shadow palettes are actually very ‘sleek’. They have a flat matte black outer covering with 12 shades provided and a mirror on the other side. A plastic cover is provided at the top of the eye shadows that have the names for each shade (mine got lost!!).
Texture & Formula – The texture of the eye shadows in Sleek Bad Girl i-divine Eyeshadow Palette is smooth and creamy except for Underground shade that is a bit hard to swatch. Abyss is little gritty however both are good in terms of pigmentation and application. They blend wonderfully with each otherand have minimal fallout.
The formula is amazing. However, they stain a bit as the shades are very much pigmented.Shade – Sleek Bad Girl i-divine Eyeshadow Palette has 12 shades out of which 10 are darker shades apt for smoky looks and 2 shades are light apt for highlighting purpose. All the shades are pigmented except for Noir, Rebel, Obnoxious. The shades are as follows:
Top row (left to right):
- Innocence: a silvery shimmery white for highlighting purpose.
- Gullible: a shimmery cream shade.
- Blade: shimmery silver grey
- Gunmetal: true gunmetal grey.
- Underground: black grey
- Noir: matte black
Bottom row (left to right):
- Intoxicated: shimmery green with grey tones.
- Envy: blackened green.
- Obnoxious: matte indigo blue
- Abyss: deep ink blue with sheen
- Twilight: a gorgeous purple with light golden sheen
- Rebel: a matte plum purple.
Pigmentation – All the shades are highly pigmented and I need a slight touch to get shades. They can easily be overdone specially Abyss, Envy. Underground is slightly less pigmented as compared to other shades but comes up beautifully on lids.
Staying Power – The darker shades stay for about 5-6 hours on my medium oily lids after which they begin to crease. The two highlighting shades stay for around 8 hours.
Sleek Bad Girl i-divine Eyeshadow Palette is a must-have palette if you are into smoky looks or love trying new shades. Bad girl is one of the highly pigmented palettes I have ever had. All the shades are great. However, they do crease quite early and stain but a good primer underneath will definitely help.
