Today I’m going to talk about the Sleek I-Divine Vintage Romance eyeshadow palette that will be a nice addition to the makeup bag of audacious and bold girls and those who have at least a little bit of experience in the makeup game.
The shades are exceptional and quite complicated. They are more suitable for creating an evening than an everyday makeup.
It comes in a paper package with colors close to the shades included.
On the front you can find the brand, the name of the product and its volume.
On the back you can find the product details, ingredients and makeup looks, etc.
Shelf life: only 12 months, so keep that in mind. The product goes a really long way due to the intense payoff.
The palette is made in China, but developed in England.
Create stunning eye makeup with 12 shades of super pigmented eye shadow. i-Divine palettes are suitable for all skin tones adding a touch of stylish sophistication to take you from day to night.
Each palette includes a matte dark colour, ideal for definition or perfecting that classic smoky effect.
Create enchanting eyes with Vintage Romance i-Divine.
Sleek MakeUP suggests opulent eyes by applying Court In Cannes all over the eye lid sweeping it underneath the bottom lash line. Blend metallic shade Bliss In Barcelona along the eye socket to define eyes. To intensify the look, layer sparkly Forever In Florence over the eye socket, focusing on the outer corners.
The palette itself looks quite stylish, compact and sleek.
The surface is matte and the product is nice to hold in my hands and keep on the shelf, because it won’t take up much room.
I think everybody knows about the downside of every Sleek palette. Their matte surfaces smear very quickly. Plus, fingertips are very noticeable. I’m always trying to keep it clean and remove all the fingerprints with a tissue.
Upon opening the palette, we can see 12 interesting shades, the names of which are given on a protective transparent film.
Each shade has its name that associates with a specific city. For example, a shimmering black shade stands for London.
The palette comes with a big mirror that doesn’t distort the image and is quite handy. Also, you can find here a dual tip sponge applicator that I don’t actually use.
It terms of the product’s quality, it’s amazing and equals the high-end palettes.
I’ve compared this palette to the famous Urban Decay Naked eyeshadow and can definitely say that some of the shades perform even better here.
The tones pair amazingly well with each other and look also incredible when used alone. Let’s take a look at each shade beginning from the upper row:
1) Pretty in Paris is a shimmering cold white tone with a gray undertone and a satin finish. It’s highly pigmented, intense and suitable for highlighting the corners of the eyes and for under brows. I apply it quite often to my whole eyelid as the main color.
2) The texture of Meet in Madrid reminds me of the first shade. It’s a golden color with a satin finish. It looks amazing and is great as a base color for the whole eyelid. It looks especially awesome in fall against my brown eyes. Also, it pairs really well with other shades.
3) Court in Cannes is a light-copper hue that reminds me of the second shade. It’s lighter than Lust in LA and darker than Meet in Madrid.
4) Lust in LA is a dark golden hue with an olive undertone. It’s intense and picks up well with a brush. Moreover, it blends out easily.
5) Romance in Rome is one of my favorite colors out there. It reminds me of a sea. The shade has a bluish overflow.
It looks darker in the palette than in reality. It has to be layered to achieve a nice payoff, but it blends out really well.
This hue is quite dark to use alone, so I apply it to my crease or to the outer corners of my eyes.
6) Propose in Prague is a red-brick color with a raspberry-red finish. It doesn’t have any shimmer. The shade is a little bit chalky and absolutely matte. It looks beautiful with my brown eyes.
7) A Vow in Venice is the lightest shade among its fellow colors. It’s a nice pink-red-violet tone that glows so amazingly in the sun and looks very gentle.
Marry in Monte Carlo is a pearly pink with a purple satin finish.
In the following makeup I used only one shade of this palette and that is Forever in Florence in a thin coat.
9) Honeymoon in Hollywood is complicated, bold, vibrant and crazily pigmented. It’s a purple shade with a pink undertone that looks awesome in makeup, but has to be properly blended out.
10) Bliss in Barcelona is an intense pearly purple hue that looks very beautiful and exceptional when applied the right way.
11) Forever in Florence is an extraordinary and brilliant dark-red-violet shade that contains fine shimmer particles, which are hardly noticeable on the eyelids.
12) Love in London is my favorite shade in this palette. It’s highly pigmented and has big silver glistening particles which are hardly detectable on my eyes. Also, you can use it for lines.
The texture of all the shades is a little bit buttery and creamy. It picks up effortlessly both with my fingertips and with a brush.
Some shades can be dusty when applying generously. The product wears really well.
I apply it to an eyeshadow base only, but here I’ve swatched it without any base.
All in all, the palette is breathtaking and well made. The idea with the names of the shades is awesome. All the colors are very romantic, but there are quite a lot of them that look alike.
Such a monotony bothers me a little. The palette lacks variety.
Thank you for your attention.
