{ Review + Swatches } Sleek Makeup : Glory I-Divine Eyeshadow Palette

Another palette to add to my collection of Sleek eyeshadow palettes! I was gifted this limited edition palette from Sleek's 2012 Collection called the 'Glory I-Divine' eyeshadow palette. Along with this eyeshadow palette, Sleek has also released a blush and a pout polish as part of their limited edition 2012 Collection which celebrates the London Olympics. As it is a limited edition palette, I really wanted to put up this review/swatches post asap just in case you guys were interested in purchasing one for yourself!

I already did a separate post a while back reviewing and swatching 4 of Sleek's eyeshadow palettes from their permanent line so I won't ramble on too much about the quality of their eyeshadows as I found them to be essentially the same. The main difference I found was that the 'Glory I-Divine' palette was a tad less powdery and therefore had a little less fall-out compared to the ones I have previously reviewed. Possibly a change in formulation?

This palette also contains a mixture of matte and shimmers as well as a variety of colours. There are a few bright colours in this palette too which is a nice change for me as I own and wear a lot of neutral shades! I really love the rose gold colour called 'Bakerloo'. It reminds me a lot of 'Chopper' from Urban Decay's Naked 2 Palette! Most of the shadows in the palette are well pigmented with the exception of two on the top row- the first eyeshadow from the left, 'Tube', a shimmery cream-gold and the second shadow from the right, 'Platform', a matte grey. The matte grey eyeshadow hardly even shows up on my skin!

The 2012 Collection (includes eyeshadow palette, blush and pout polish) retails for $19.99 whereas the eyeshadow palette alone costs $9.99. You can find more information on www.sleekmakeup.com
