Sleek i-Divine in Arabian Nights

Sleek iDivine Arabian Nights ReviewPIN IT

You can’t beat a Sleek i-Divine palette can you? They’re always reliably well-edited with an array of shadow shades that work together to create a multitude of looks for the bargain price of £7.99 for 12 shades.  The Sleek i-Divine Arabian Nights is my favourite of the i-Divines by far.

Sleek Arabian Nights is a collection of sultry jewel-tones mixed with shimmering metals and a good selection of definer and highlighter shades.  All of the shades are shimmery apart from one matte shade, plus a few give a metallic finish.  This palette is like a colour-play palette for grown-ups or those who want to experiment with colour without using anything too bright or neon.

It was instant love when I saw the Sleek i-Divine Arabian Nights palette at a Sleek event and I’m happy to report that I love it every bit as much as I anticipated I would.  You’ve got everything you need for some very easy, gentle, neutral looks as well as the deeper shades that will supply either a mild hit of colour, a bit of definition, or all-out glamour.  Consequently this is an absolutely perfect travel palette.

I have a few favourites, most of which I’ve used in the look below.  Aladdin’s Lamp is a cool, antique gold shade that works as a base for so many looks, but it’s also a great neutral shade for a quick wash of colour.  Valley of Diamonds is so unusual; it’s a deep, plummy purple with gold flecks and it looks gorgeous on the eye.  Genie is another of those shades that flatters and fits in with all sorts of looks – it’s a bit like a deeper take on Aladdin’s Lamp.

In the above look I’m wearing Aladdin’s Lamp all over the lid and under the eye with Valley of the Diamonds on the outer corners.  I used Hocus Pocus on the inner corners just to add a pop of colour and I finished with Gold Souk blended along the crease to add a bit of lift to the whole look.  If I had to complain (and you know I love to complain) then I’d say the one thing this is missing is a deep magenta shade, which would work so well with the purples and blues for creating smoky, jewel-toned eyes.  Apart from that, this palette is basically perfect; it comes with a nice big mirror, not too terrible applicators (the whole look was achieved using the sponges and finished with a blending brush) all of which is housed in a typically sturdy i-Divine case.  Total winner from me! The Sleek i-Divine Arabian Nights palette is a limited edition and available now here – link – for £7.99.  For a look at what else is new from Sleek, check out my post here.
