Sleek eye palette in Au Naturel

Sleek i-Divine Palette in Au Naturel 

Great make up shouldn't break the bank, and here's a perfect example of a brand that does all it can to fulfil that remit. I've been a big fan of sleek for a long time, and the obsession started with their perfect contouring palette, which has a gorgeous highlight and a dupe of Benefit Hoola for the contour...all for the grand total of £6.99. (More on this here).

Today however, I'm featuring one of the much loved eye palettes, the i-Divine palette in Au Naturel, which has 12 subtle shades ranging from Ivory to Black in mattes and shimmers. Gorgeous. I've always been a fan of more neutral colours for all make up, especially eyes, so I of course love the colour selection available in this palette. The 12 shades give you the opportunity to create any type of neutral eye look you fancy, whether thats a really natural look with the paler colours all over the lid and some soft taupe through the crease, or a dramatic smokey eye using the matte black, shimmery cranberry and gold tones. It's essentially the ideal starter palette for someone wanting to have one palette to cover all the neutral options. 

As a big lover of the Urban Decay Naked palettes, I feel this blogpost cannot exist without some comparison. 12 shades, mattes and shimmers, neutral colours. The concept is the same, and as I've already expressed my approval of Sleek's colour selection, the only thing left to discuss is quality. I'm talking pigmentation and staying power. Of course, a palette that costs £7.99 is going to have a massive battle to beat the likes of eyeshadow heavyweights Urban Decay, but this palette sure offers up a good fight. The consistency and pigmentation of this palette are like no other at this price point, they're soft powders that allow even application and strong pigmentation. The softness means they blend well, so they're super easy to work with which is great for beginners or busy ladies. The staying power isn't as great as some of my more high end eyeshadows (Charlotte Tilbury, Nars) but for this price point it's pretty darn good, and using a creme base or eyelid primer will help improve longevity. Ultimately, this is a really great palette and as an added bonus it's the perfect pick for somebody working on a tighter budget. The Sleek i-Divine Palette retails for £7.99 and is available online and at Boots & Superdrug. 

I actually won this palette from a fellow blogger's... The very lovely Laura from sent this to me after I won her 200 follower giveaway - thank you so much Laura! x
