Sleek I-Divine Storm

Now I’ve FINALLY finished for the summer I can start getting up to date with my blog, there’s been a huge last minute push from all my teachers this last week so I’ve been up to my neck in deadlines :(

I’ve actually been meaning to do this post for AGES, I just never got round to putting all the images together…..

So, I’m pretty much in love with the sleek i-divine palettes – I only have the storm one at the moment, but don’t be surprised to see the other two appear in future hauls! I think the storm palette is probably the most wearable palette and it probably my most loved and well used palette I own purely because pigmentation, colour range and staying power are pretty amazing for the money. At only £5.99(I think it varies a little from place to place) you can’t go wrong!

I know I mention this palette a fair bit and one or two of you actually mentioned me maybe reviewing this or showing some looks I do on a daily basis using just this palette :) I opted for the different looks because a review would just turn into a huge rave :p

So here are some of the looks I do a lot –

I call this my cranberry look :) It’s a bit richer in colour in person

I’m no good at giving things names so I’m just calling this my blue eye make up

Obviously you can do a smokey eye -I normally do it much darker however I was wearing this to college and I didn’t think I’d be able to get away with a full on smoky eye :p

I don’t know why this looks so bright… It’s actually much more muted, a kind of sage green that looks gorgeous with brown eyes – I use these colours quite a lot :)

Then you can always do a really simple tawny, natural look – well, neutral compared to the others!

This is by no means the only combinations you can do! All the colours blend together really well, that’s one reason I love it – it’s got all the colours you need for near enough every wearable look

As far as mascara goes I thought I might as well stick with the Sleek theme and I swiped on some of their eye drama mascara – I’ll review this properly soon but I like it.(I forgot to take a picture of it :/)

P.S the shadows are mineral and I know some people don’t like mineral make up, but I’ve found them really easy to work with & I’ve dropped the palette a few times and the only bit that’s crumbled in the maite black!

I always want 2 try this palettes
is the shadows long lasting ?

@Charly - I just got mine from superdrug, you can buy them online as well though x

@M!Ss NoNa - Really long lasting, although i always use a base like Urban Decay's eye primer potion or benefit's stay don't stray. I think without a base they'd crease like mad because they're mineral shadows x

I don't tend to use eye shadow!
Might have to buy one of these pallettes and take your example, for a try at least! ♥

Indie.Tea said...

The palettes look beautiful. And you are SO much better at eyeshadow than me...it would take me forever to do all of those looks!

Caitlin said...

This looks amazing , and I love how the shadows look on you! I have the graphite one that I won in a giveaway awhile back and I like it quite a lot :)
