Review: Sleek I-Divine Palette in Sunset & Whimsical False Eyelashes in Playful

While all the bloggers were writing about Sleek palettes, I didn't really know the brand that well. I got my first Sleek palettes last week, but now I'm in full swing. Here's another I-Divine palette I got from Slovenian online beauty store Ličila.si. This one is called Sunset.


''The Sunset i-Divine palette contains 12 highly-pigmented complementary shades representing the sun, sea and sand. With a blend of shimmering golds, reds and blues, this palette is perfect for that sun-kissed look. The velvet-touch consistency gives full and shimmering coverage to the eye lid for maximum effect. Each shade can be applied alone for a dramatic effect or mixed to create a personalised look.'' (Sleek)

Sunset contains 11 shimmery shades and a matte black one. I miss the purples and pinks (since we're talking about the Sunset theme), but the colors are really nice nonetheless. The blue one looks like an outcast though.


I swatched the shades for you. Of course. Here's the upper line of colors.


And the lower line of colors. Do you dig these?


Price: ~ €8.50

Where to buy? Sleek online store (international), Ličila.si (for Slovenian customers only).

Although this palette didn't wow me immediately, I started loving it the moment I tried the colors on my skin. Beautiful shimmery shades, pigmented and soft ... what more could I ask for? Well, I would include some purple-ish colors in the palette, but I wouldn't be able to decide which of the shades I'd leave out.

And because I can't really try out a palette without creating a look with it, here's a little something I did in front of the mirror.


Products used for this look:
* Fyrinnae Pixie Epoxy
* Sleek I-Divine Palette in Sunset
* Essence Black Mania Eye Pencil
* NYX Jumbo Eye Pencil in Milk (waterline)
* Maybelline Volum' Express Turbo Boost Mascara
* Whimsical Lashes in Playful

Pros: 
+ Great quality.
+ Price.
+ Packaging is extra cool.
+ There's a huge mirror inside the palette.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Do I recommend it? What do you think? It's a no-brainer. You like the colors, you get it. I also have to mention the applicator that comes with the palette. I still wouldn't call it my first pick, but it's actually not that bad. The sponge is kind of rubbery and it picks the color up pretty well.

I also got these false eyelashes with the palette and thought it would be best to try them together. These are Coastal Scents' Whimsical Lashes in Playful.


Here's what you get. Very subtle, fragile-looking lashes with adhesive.


Yeah, the look of these got me wondering if there will be any effect once I put them on. They look so short, thin and ... well, not so false eyelash-y. Here we go, I started creating my own adjectives.


Price: ~ $3.99

Where to buy? Coastal Scents (international), Ličila.si (for Slovenian customers only).

They do look more subtle than most of the falsies I've tried, but these false eyelashes are one of the best so far. They're amazingly soft, light and easy to apply. You almost can't feel you're wearing them and that's nice for a change. I hate lashes that poke me in the inner corner of my eye or the ones that feel so heavy I get tired from keeping my eyes open. These are a complete opposite of that. And I adore them. They look and feel natural. And my upper lashes are finally the same lenght as my lower ones. :D


Pros:
+ Light, soft and natural looking lashes.
+ Easy application.
+ They come with a glue.
+ If you're careful, you can re-use them.

Cons:
- You have to be careful while removing them if you want to re-use them.

Do I recommend it? I've been using more of the extravagant style false eyelashes, but these stole my heart. They might look innocent and you can't really tell they're there, but if I removed them ... you'd see the difference. This is what I call enhancing the natural beauty. Yes, I recommend them.


*The products were sent to me by Ličila.si online store.

Thanks for looking!
