Sleek Makeup’s Sunset i-Divine Palette

Sirvinya sent me my first Sleek palettes as gifts. Then I hit the site and bought myself several…and this was one of them smile

My favorite colors in this palette are the cardinal-red shimmer (Upper-3), the burgundy shimmer (Lower-1), the pink-tan duochrome shimmer (Lower 5) and the pink-gold shimmer (Lower 6). The colors seem a little softer than some of the other Sleek palettes I’ve used. I don’t know if this is because of the age of this palette, or if the shimmer shades are just softer. (I hope that it survives the trip to Atlanta without a fuss…!)

Most of these colors are shimmers rather than mattes, and the color payoff is fairly good. This palette was released before Sleek got into the habit of naming their colors, so I'll just go in order from left to right, upper row then lower:

  • Upper-1: the matte black that's in so many of the Sleek palettes. It's a completely matte black, not as dark as some liner shades I've seen but it has good color payoff.
  • Upper-2: is a berry-red shimmer. Cool deep red, kind of similar to Shiro's Hearts
  • Upper-3: cardinal-red shimmer. The warm counterpart to Upper-2.
  • Upper-4: orange shimmer. Almost bright pumpkin orange, or deep citrus-rind orange. Bright without being garish.
  • Upper-5: bright yellow shimmer.
  • Upper-6: turquoise-sky shimmer. That utterly perfect blue-sky shade that the sky so rarely actually is.
  • Lower-1: burgundy shimmer. Similar to Concrete Minerals' Mad Hatter, but deeper and with a more metallic finish.
  • Lower-2: plum-red shimmer.
  • Lower-3: spiced orange shimmer. Not quite "rust" - it's a bit brighter than that - and not quite "russet" - not enough brown.
  • Lower-4: golden brown shimmer. I'm not quite sure, but I think this shade (or its close cousin) was in the Paraguaya palette.
  • Lower-5: pinked golden-tan duochrome shimmer.
  • Lower-6: pink-gold shimmer. Reminds me of Make Up For Ever's Star Powder 916, but with a lighter softer pink.
