As promised in my look new Sleek launches, here’s a closer look at the new Sleek I-Divines A New Day and All Night Long which are due to launch next month. As the name suggests, A New Day is more of a day palette, whilst All Night Long is more night-friendly. However, that doesn’t mean you’re limited to one or the other as both palettes contain a good range of colours that can be adapted for day and night time wear.
Sleek I-Divine A New Day contains a range of day friendly shades with seven shimmers and five mattes. The top row is mostly light to mid champagnes and peaches with the exception of Don’t Worry (second from the right) but the bottom row is a great edit of browns, bronzes and the randomly included matte berry shade of Carpe Diem.
As someone who rarely gets the opportunity to do a night look (alas) I favour the day shades of A New Day. On the top row, from left to right, we have Sun is Shining (champagne with shimmer), Brightside (warm bronze with shimmer), Daydreamer (lovely mid, matte brown), Let it Go (warmer, mid matte brown), Don’t Worry (deeper brown with shimmer) and finally Be Happy (pale, matte skin tone).
The bottom row, from left to right, starts with Feelin’ Good (pale, skin tone with shimmer), Silver Lining (silvery bronze with shimmer), Shine On (warm, mid gold with shimmer), Carpe Diem (gorgeous matte and muddy berry), Believer (silvery champagne with shimmer) and finally H-A-P-P-Y (deep matte brown). My favourite shades from A New Day are Carpe Diem, Daydreamer, H-A-P-P-Y and Sun is Shining. Sleek I-Divine A New Day launches on 10th February 2016 for £7.99.
Sleek I-Divine All Night Long is the night-time take on this neutral duo, but to be honest, the only main difference is the fact that there are some slightly deeper shades and the pigmentation on some of the shimmer finishes is quite rich and foil-like. There are fewer mattes (just two), and the rest are varying shades of shimmer. The colour payoff is impressive and the colours are quite creamy, so the richness of the shimmery shades should all blend together nicely if you’re going for a bold look.
The shades on the top row, from left to right, start with Bellini (gold with shimmer), Negroni (matte, mid-to-deep brown), Martini (champagne with shimmer), Prosecco (antique gold with shimmer), Kir Royale (pale gold with shimmer) and Mimosa (deep warm brown with shimmer).
The bottom row from left to right are Champagne (yellow gold with shimmer), Spritz (deep, cool brown with shimmer), Mai Tai (matte gold), Cosmopolitan (red-leaning brown with shimmer), Daiquiri (earthy brown with shimmer) and finally Manhattan (warm and rich, deep brown with shimmer). My favourites from All Night Long are Spritz, Manhattan, Prosecco and Mimosa. Sleek I-Divine All Night Long also launches on 10th February 2016 for £7.99.
