BBAC 2014, Day 13: EoTD with Sleek’s Original i-Divine palette

Posted on Friday, at bought • 382 views

This was the very first Sleek i-Divine palette, but I already owned 10 others before I got this one. I initially thought that I might not really want this color palette because others that I already had, were similar enough that I didn't need to duplicate. (The name itself was also…well…less than inspiring.) All I can say is, I'm not always The Best Decision-Maker Ever. I do like these colors, and I'm glad I picked this one up.

BBAC 2014, Day 13: EoTD with Sleek’s Original i-Divine palette

I did it!! I did it!! Three colors only!! I did it!!

It was a near thing. I opened the palette and thought Oh, the teal and navy on the outer lid, the peach-pink in the middle, and just a tiny bit of the rust-orange on the innermo…no, dammit! Keep it simple for once. Two colors and either a liner or a highlighter. Challenge yourself. Even so, I was still on the verge of using the medium dusty green on the lid and the turquoise and navy as accents, with (of course) the black as a liner shade. (When I first began buying the i-Divine palettes, EVERY palette had matte black. It was like Urban Decay's Perversion liner, which was in every kit except for the ones that Zero wasn't in.)

I just -=really=- wanted to keep one of these looks under three colors. I also re-used the Lash Potion mascara. I'm running out of new ones to try, and I didn't want to use the black-gold mascara with this look. It really needed a black, something that provided more than just definition. Lash Potion, even this version of it, gives me a tiny bit of volume but not too much.</p>
