Review: Sleek iDivine Ultra Matte V2 Darks Palette

A little bit late to the band wagon with this one but even so, it’s my first ever Sleek palette and I felt it deserved a post!

This palette is the i-Divine Ultra Matte V2 which is the the Darks palette.

I have to say I quite like the packaging, the crushed eyeshadow pictures on the simple box and the sturdy black plastic packaging is something I quite like.

I normally leave the applicators that come with the palettes as they’re never normally that good and I prefer brushes but I used this one for a little while and it did pick up the colour quite easily and the longer handle made it easier to use.

I will still probably use my brushes but if I needed to touch it up when I was out then this may actually do the job!

You can see from these photos the different colours in this palette and the names of them all below:

I feel like they are a good set of colours, different enough that none of them are samey but will also work really well together.

They are also the exact kind of colours that I will use!

Here’s just a few more snaps as I got a bit camera happy with my first ever palette!

Now onto the important stuff….

Here are swatches from the top colours, and then the bottom colours follow after it:

I feel that the colours are really pigmented and show up really well considering I just brushed the top of each colour.

The only colour I was a bit disappointed with was Dune, it is a very light colour and doesn’t same to be very pigmented and therefore doesn’t seem to match the palette like the others do.

I’m sure you’ve seen these pictures before by another blogger but I needed to share my excitement at my very first Sleek eye palette.

I particularly love how the navy has come out, as well as the bottle green colour.

I’ve brought this palette with me to America and have so far been using it for all manner of occasions but I especially love it because I can use the black to line my eyes for every day wear and the brown to fill in my brows as it’s the perfect colour for my almost black eyebrows!

What do you think of this palette? Do you prefer this one or V1 Brights?

I’m really impressed with my very first Sleek buy!

    I really love Sleek Palettes, in fact I prefer them to the MUA ones and I know there is a slight price difference but I think I would pay a little bit more and have a Sleek one 🙂 xx

      I think I agree with you, I'd prefer to have the black casing on the Sleek palettes too! xx
