NEW! Sleek I-Divine Eyeshadow Palettes | Review + Swatches

Highstreet brands are on top form with their latest releases, and these two new palettes from Sleek are no exception. Sleek have launched two new palettes into their ever loved I-Divine range, which are all palettes housing 12 eyeshadows in a mixture of mattes and shimmers. If you haven't seen any Sleek eyeshadow palettes before you've been living under a rock, probably the same rock as me because although I'd seen them before I didn't know just how good they were until now.

Sleek I Divine A New Day and All Night Long Palettes

The two new palettes in the collection are named All Night Long* and A New Day*. A New Day being the more daytime shades palette, consisting of 5 matte shades and a gorgeous range of shimmers. I definitely think this can be used to transition into an evening makeup look as well, as there is a few deeper shades that can be run through the crease to create a more dramatic eye. All Night Long is my favourite out of the two palettes, although it only contains a few matte shades, the shimmer shades are to die for. Just look at that gorgeous copper shade in the bottom right. The shades in this palette are darker than A New Day, so more like a night time palette, but again I would definitely find myself rocking this palette during the day too. I think this is a perfect palette to start the day off simple, and then branch into something a bit more daring in the evening. A perfect palette to take to work with you when you're heading straight out after.

All the shades in both palettes are incredibly smooth and buttery to swatch. I only had trouble with swatching a few of the matter shades because they're so like my skin tone so they don't show up that well. When applied to the eyes, there is a little bit of fallout but that's nothing a quick tap of the brush before applying can't handle. I found the shades in the All Night Long palette a little bit more pigmented than the A New Day palette, but as they're darker colours this is something that I did expect. Applying the shades over a good eye primer increases the wear time slightly, but it's not essential to make them last. Overall, the shades have a brilliant colour pay off and blend flawlessly. If I didn't know these were Sleek shadows, I definitely would've marked them as a high end product. 

Both palettes are now available from Boots for £7.99, here and here
