Sleek palette has always been one of my favorites, I always keep at least one sleek palette in my kit when I'm freelancing. I've had 3 sleek palettes before and now I bought 7 more. Surprisingly, the Matte colours are frankly not as amazing as the shimmery or iridescent colours. Which I don't blame them because it is not easy to make a very pigmented matte eyeshadow. But as I said, most of them are pretty amazing. Especially for it's price! It retails for $9.99 euro each, around $100HKD each.
Good thing about them is that now they have names for each eyeshadow, which in the older version they didn't have that. They've changed the packaging a little as well. When you open up the palette, the mirror doesn't fall 180 degree downwards anymore, it can actually stand up on it's own when you put it on a table! This is really important because the mirror is basically pointless if it can't stand up on its own.
|This is how I store them, I've bought this container at Japanese home in case you wanna know :)|
|This palette still has the old packaging.|
|The colours looks pretty similar with Naked 2 palette from urban decay, definitely a good dupe. pretty amazing quality let me tell you.|
Ultra Mattes V2 Darks
Ultra Matte V2 Brights
Oh So Special
|Why can't they just make the vanilla colour they have in the "Ultra Matte V1" Palette? It's not the exact same shade but at least that colour showed up and this.... doesn't work at all.|
|what? what's wrong? nothing's showing up!|
|you can't even see it... it's right there, can you even tell?|
Although the lighter matte colours doesn't really show up on skin and it's not as pigmented as i've imagined, I still think that sleek palettes are very versatile. love the design of the palette, the big mirror... I need to carry around at least 1 sleek eye shadow palette every time i go out. No matter for work or just going out. It's in my emergency kit. a single palette, most of them, could help me create multiple looks and change from a day look to an evening look. love it. A black eyeliner, mascara and sleek palette, I can't go anywhere without them!
