This palette had been left unbought and waiting in my lust list for long, until Agnibanya of http://agnibanya.blogspot.in/ , told me that she plans to place an order with Sleekmakeup.com, in a jiffy I joined in :). Yes, I absolutely do not regret this hasty decision of mine ! I also ordered two of their blushes, which I would review on the coming days.
Girls in love of smokey eyes, and related eye shadows, lend me your ears . err ! rather , lend me your eyes, and read this post. A one stop palette to fill all smokey eye lover’s insatiable lust.
The shades : A palette comprising of, twelve eye shadows fit for doing smokey eye looks and two excellent highlighting shades.
The texture and pigmentation: Amazing pigmentation and color depth , soft and hassle free. They are easy to pat and blend. Most of the eye shadows are metallic finish which shimmers.
The lasting: Lasts long upto four hours without primer, do I need to explain more?
The packaging: Come in a sleek palette, which is sturdy and travel friendly but the brush that comes with it is pretty useless.
My experience: Yes , I would buy it again and again, if it gets over. One stop for all intense, smokey eye looks. The shade selection comprises of deep blues, purples and deep jungle greens, though some shades look similar. It has a jet bllack eye shadow called “Noir” , which is really black and very versatile , long lasting as well. So those who are in the quest for deep black Eye shadows, do keep this in mind.
The colors can be mixed and matched to create a lot of looks. I am totally satisfied and its indeed value for money. If you get a chance to share the shipping costs with someone, do plunge in.
