I collect the I-Divine eyeshadow palettes and am lucky enough to own every single one.Here is my review of Sleek Monaco I-Divine Palette EOTD and Swatches !
Unfortunately I was not overly keen on the releases at the end of last year but they have really stepped their game up for me with this palette and the previous Paraguaya offering. The colours in the Monaco palette are right up my alley and we see a return to the glorious, smooth eyeshadows formulas that are pigmented without staining my eyelids (I’m looking at you Bad Girl Palette!). Whilst Sleek have put their prices up yet again you are still getting a bit of a bargain. I bought this for £7 on the Sleek website.
*could not for the life of me get my camera to focus on the actual palette itself. It’s black like most of the rest…*
I love the box and helpfully Sleek have started printing the name on the palette on the front of the palette itself which makes it a little easier to find in my collection. I love that they have been naming their shadows recently although it would be nice to see the names printed on the back of the palette as I always throw the plastic insert away. This palette has four creamy shimmery colours (Sunset, Kiwi Zest, Lotus Flower and Humming Bird) and the rest are matte. All are swatched dry with no primer. Although the matte shades are pigmented some do benefit from being patted on over a sticky base.
Here is a quick EOTD that I did using these. I used ELF Mineral Eyeshadow Primer, a touch of NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk, MAC Feline eye pencil on the water line and Clinique High Impact mascara. The shadows I used were Midnight Garden (dark navy), Washed Ashore (orange/ peach), Magenta Madness (a glorious blue toned fuchsia), Aqua Marine (bright teal) and Bamboo (cream).
This is limited edition by the way so I highly suggest getting a wriggle on an picking it up ASAP!
