Sleek - i-Divine Au Naturel palette- review and swatches

Today's post is about one of the most famous eye shadow palettes - Sleek i-Divine Au Naturel. It consist of mineral baked eyeshadows in twelve different natural colours.

INGREDIENTS: Mica, Talc, Paraffinum liquidum, Magnesium Stearate, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Dimethicone, Propylparaben, Methylparaben, Pigment may contain (+/-): titanium dioxide (CI 77891), yellow iron oxide (CI 77492), red iron oxide (CI 77491), manganese violet (CI 77742).

The palette looks like a compact thin black box, it's easy to open but I don't think it would open during any kind of transport. Inside you have a big mirror and a double sided sponge applicator, which I have not used and I probably won't.

It is really nicely  pigmented it doesn't smell of anything, the amount of each shade is rather small, 12x 1.1g. 

And now the swatches: The first five shades are really bright so they are also barely visible on my hand. These swatches are made without any kind of base, I put them straight on my arm.

From bottom up: Nougat, Nubuck, Cappuccino, Honeycomb

From bottom up: Toast, Taupe, Conker Moss

From bottom up: Bark, Mineral Earth, Regal, Noir

One first photo you can see how first four shades are really gentle and are very good for brightening your eyes, also can be used as a highlighter.
Second photo I started with Toast, a warm, orangy shade - very useful in summer and fall make-up looks :) 
I love all the shimmery shades Taupe, Conker, Moss, Mineral Earth are all very lovely. A surprise was Regal. It looked like another brown until I applied it on my hand and saw it's actually purple. Also love the last shade, Noir. It is really intense exactly what I was looking for in a black eyeshadow.

All in all this eyeshadow palette has proved again that she truly is a must have! As for my personal taste, she combines all the shades I would normally use, I love they added at least one green shade and one purple one. I also love that with these shimmery shades I can make a really quick and gorgeous look ;)

Hope this was useful to you and thanks for reading! :)
