My favourite Sleek I-Divine is the Arabian Nights palette, which was packed full of gorgeous jewel-toned and slightly muted takes on colour, which allowed you to create all kinds of smoky looks that were a bit different to the traditional grey or brown smoky finish. Arabian Nights was limited edition, but thankfully there’s an I-Divine combination to take the place of Arabian Nights, which is the new and very pretty Enchanted Forest.
The Sleek I-Divine in Enchanted Forest is what I’d call a grown-up way to do a pop of colour on the eye. The colours are muted and jewel-toned, but there’s also a few slightly bright colours in the mix. However, every shade is wearable and there isn’t anything too scary.
There’s a great selection of both matte and shimmers, with the shimmers being so pigmented they’re like foils – they just glide on and look beautifully illuminated with very little effort. The mattes are less buttery, but still extremely easy to blend. There’s a mix of nude/neutrals alongside the brighter jewel shades, meaning you can put together a mostly neutral look with a flash of colour if that’s what you fancy.
The shades in the top row, from left to right, are Glass Slipper (matte off-white), Beatrice (matte cranberry), Perla (silvery purple shimmer), Fairy Godmother (peach shimmer) Grand Duke (purple/navy shimmer) and Drizella (golden taupe shimmer). The bottom row shades, from left to right, are Pumpkin (bronze shimmer), Prince Charming (matte deep teal), Happily Ever After (blue-leaning silver shimmer) Anastasia (matte rich merlot), Daphne (bright grey shimmer) and finally Lady Tremaine (deep brown shimmer).
It’s really hard to pick favourites as there’s very little in the palette that I don’t love, but I’d say Beatrice, Anastasia (going through a bit of a berry phase) are my favourites of the brighter colours, whilst Fairy Godmother and Drizella are my favourites of the more neutral colours. I also absolutely love the Cinderella-themed names! I decided to try out a look with the shades that I wouldn’t normally reach for, so I went for Daphne all over the lid, Prince Charming under the eye, Beatrice on the upper and lower outer corners and Lady Tremaine for a smudgy line of definition on the outer corner. This was a look dominated by teal and I even added a teal mascara to finish it. Definitely not a look I’d normally go for, but it was great fun to put together and surprisingly wearable! I absolutely love the Enchanted Forest shades and I’m always blown away by the combination of finishes, shades and extremely good price of £7.99. You can find it here – link.
