SLEEK MAKEUP: I-Divine Glory Palette, London Calling...
Sleek makeup launches a new make up palette inspired by the Olympics which will be held in London this year. It's from a limited edition collection, so this will only be available for a limited period. This collection is called London Calling.. and includes a blush, the famous pout polish and the i-divine glory palette which I'm going to review today. There are some very bright colors in this palette, you either love it or hate it.. check out some swatches in this blogpost.
I've always wanted to try SLEEK Make up actually, but it's quite hard to get in The Netherlands. I can't just buy it at the drugstore nearby since this brand is not available here. Unfortunately, I can only buy it online. The reason why I wanted to try products of SLEEK Make up is because of the reasonable price, the great pigmentation and I just love the color combination in their make up palettes.
Price & Where to buy
You can purchase this at Superdrug from the 4th of July and on their website www.sleekmakeup.com for £7.99, which isn't expensive at all. People in The Netherlands can purchase Sleek make up at Boozyshop.nl. I'm not sure if they are going to sell this collection as well, but they do sell some of their collections.
It has a nice & neat packaging. At the back you can find the ingredients.
As you can see, there are 12 colors in this palette. There are some very bright colors in this palette but also some dark shades, shimmery and matte ones as well. It includes a sponge brush with 2 ends and a huge mirror o.o, totally love the mirror!
Names of the eyeshadows
You might recognize the names of the eye shadows if you have visited London before. Some of them are named after the famous underground stations in London. First row from left to right: Tube, Overground, Bakerloo, Jubilee, Platform, Northern. Second row from left to right: District, Hammersmith and city, Picadilly, Circle, Victoria, Central.

The only color which I didn't like was Platform, the matte light grey eye shadow. The pigmentation is the worst of all 12 and I think it's weird that there is a matte eyeshadow in this palette. It somehow just doesn't match.
Face of the day
I created a very simple look with 2 eye shadows of this palette, the yellow (circle) and green (district) one. I even created a gradient, but it's not really visible with my monolids lol. I don't like dramatic looks, so that's why I kept it simple. I definitely recommend Sleek make up palettes. It's worth the money since the pigmentation is great!
