Review: Sleek MakeUP Curacao I-Divine Palette


Sleek MakeUP Curacao Palette, $10.50 from www.sleekmakeup.com

The first thing I noticed about the palette was how small it is. For some reason, the pictures on blogs and stuff made these palettes seem a little bit bigger than they actually are. I've put one next to a tube of mascara so you guys can get a better gauge of the size. The palettes are also quite thin, made of sturdy metal and have a big mirror so they are perfect for carrying around.

 In keeping with the Caribbean theme, all of the shadows are named after beachy cocktails!

The palette contains a mix of matte and shimmery shadows. I personally found the shimmery shades to be a little bit more pigmented than the matte ones, but I was still pretty impressed by how well they all showed up!

 Swatches of the top row: Tequila Sunrise, Martini, Blue Hawaiian, Bloody Mary, Screwdriver, Green Iguana

 Bottom Row: Apres Midori, Blue Lagoon, Purple Haze, Green Martini, Singapore Sling, Espresso Martini

My favorite shadows in the palette are definitely Green Iguana and Tequila Sunrise. Here are two quick eye looks that I threw together when I was playing around with the palette :)

So now I can say that I totally get all the fuss over Sleek MakeUP. It's crazy how great these are for the price. This palette is pretty bright and, while it's marketed for the summer, I think this would be useful to have around all year long. The darker shades would work during fall and winter, too and it's always fun to have a pop of color no matter what the weather is like!

Sleek MakeUP isn't available in Dubai yet, but they do ship internationally! I definitely recommend having a look at their website because they are constantly releasing new products. Plus, you can't really beat the price, can you?

This palette was sent to me by Sleek MakeUP.

    Espresso Martini is such a great color. It's a very soft black so it blends well with all the colors. I love them all hehehe :)
