Happy New Year! I hope 2014 is prosperous and just a fantastic year for you!
I finally got my hands on a Sleek Makeup palette. Sleek is one of those brands I keep telling myself I need to try & buy, but either forget about or choose another product. Luckily, Luvocracy was offering free shipping on $20 and over, so I took advantage of it and ordered 2 i-Divine Ultra Mattes palettes.
This is version 2 of Ultra Mattes. Version 1 is an amazing looking colorful and vibrant matte palette with all brights.
I have so many shimmer palettes, so it was nice to get my hands on a new matte palette.
There are 12 pretty shades, and the variety of matte colors is really what drew me in. It doesn’t just have darks as the name implies, it also offers several highlight colors. Although, I do think it needs a deep black.
It comes in a sturdy plastic case, has a large mirror under the cover and a double ended eyeshadow applicator that I probably won’t use. The colors are really smooth and highly pigmented. I wouldn’t call them “creamy” as the website says, but they are soft, very blendable and long-lasting. They feel super silky to the touch.
The only color that is a little chalky is Ink. I can still work with it, but the consistency and texture are slightly rougher than all the other colors.
Testing out my new palette, I tried out Maple, Paper Bag and Flesh. They blended together easily and lasted all night with Urban Decay Primer Potion underneath.
I can see myself reaching for this palette alot. I can use the neutrals for work and the brights for after. I’m so glad I bought this!
