Sleek MakeUP Ultra Matte i-Divine Palettes in V1 Brights, V2 Darks

Makeup trends have gone mad for matte. From matte manis to matte lips, gloss and shimmers are taking a back seat.

Matte eyeshadows are notorious for their lack of pigment and chalky texture. But Sleek MakeUP’s ULTRA MATTE i-DIVINES are intensely creamy, highly pigmented colours that are super-blendable. These mineral-based eyeshadows are so smooth in texture they make colour blending and contouring effortless.

Every palette of Sleek MakeUP’s legendary i-Divines are 12 shades of high-quality, super-pigmented eyeshadows suited to every skin tone, giving you the freedom of choice according to your preference, mood or skin tone. Sleek MakeUP’s intense eyeshadow pigments mean shades can also be used as long lasting eye liners by applying with a small eyeshadow brush.

Sleek MakeUP’s ULTRA MATTE i-DIVINES are available in 2 palettes of fully pigmented matte shades: V1 Brights and V2 Darks. So whether you prefer bold brights or muted darks, we’ve got it covered. For perfect Spring Summer eyes mimic the muted mattes seen at Haider Ackerman at Paris FW and Salvatore Ferragamo at Milan FW. Or for a more daring pop of colour, seek inspiration from Moschino Cheap & Chic or Paul Costelloe at London FW.

Sleek MakeUP’s Ultra Matte i-Divines launch on 9th May 2012 in Superdrug stores nationwide and online at sleekmakeup.com and will retail for £6.49/€8.50/$10.00.

Sleek Makeup Peach Shimmer Glo Face & Body Highlighter Review, Photos, Swatches

Sleek Makeup Peach Shimmer Glo Face & Body Highlighter

Sleek Makeup Peach Shimmer Glo Face & Body Highlighter ($10.00 for 0.29 oz.) is a multi-colored highlighter that features five strips of color that can be swirled together or used in parts to create an illuminated look. This is an online exclusive to sleekmakeup.com. Each strip is fairly narrow, so they’re not shades you would use singularly as a blush, though you could certainly try or go for a very precise look by using eye brushes instead. The five individual shades consist of a shimmering white gold with a strong yellow gold sheen, peachy beige with a softer shimmer, coppery orange with a shimmery finish, golden peach-pink with a frosted finish, and a dirty beige with a champagne frosted shimmer. Together, they create a warm bronze with a golden shimmer-sheen and slight red undertones. It’s a bit like a shimmery version of Urban Decay’s Toasted. Estee Lauder Topaz Chameleon is similar but more orange-y.

The texture of the powder is very soft and feels finely-milled, and the payoff of each individual shade was lovely. I didn’t have any problems with pigmentation while swatching or during application. This is the kind of over-the-top highlighter than some will absolutely love but others will struggle to perfect. It has a strong frosted, borderline-metallic, finish, which emphasizes pores, skin imperfections, and any natural texture you may have to your skin. For those lucky enough to be owners of perfect complexions, this is beautiful on, but for the rest of us, it can be a little too much.  I did like how soft the powder was, because it made it very easy to blend and soften against the skin.  I was disappointed in the wear, though; it started to look patchy and faded after a mere six hours.

For the price point, the texture is amazing!  The wear and the way to does emphasize skin imperfections are downsides, though.  I’d recommend using a stippling brush to achieve more of a glow while minimizing some of the emphasis it naturally gives because of that strong frosted and metallic finish.  It’s a bit more of a bronzy glow on my skin tone than pure highlighter, so for lighter skin tones, you’ll find this more of a blush/bronzer, while deeper skin tones will find this to work well as a warm-toned highlighter. It does compare well with Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Bricks, which also have a stronger, frostier finish.
