Review and Swatches: Sleek i-divine Eyeshadow Palette in Garden of Eden

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Sleek's products - their eyeshadow palettes are some next level stuff. I have 3 in total and Garden of Eden is my most recent addition. I love these palettes so so much!! They're around £8 and you get a total of 12 beautiful shades. They're so versatile that I find myself reaching for these over my higher end palettes. The palette itself is a sleek (see what I did there) thin black palette with a large mirror inside and a double ended sponge applicator (that I never use except for Emergency Situations) Garden of Eden has a mixture of matte, shimmer and satin shades all with a green/ brown/ pink hue to them.

The palette comes with a clear plastic sleeve with the shade names on it - a bit annoying as I always lose these or they get in the way all the time!

Garden of Eden
This is a beautiful orange toned gold shade with a lovely shimmery finish. I love this for subtle eye looks all over the lid or as an inner corner highlight. I've also used this as a highlight all over my face and it's beautiful on my skin tone! These shades are incredibly pigmented and blend like a dream

Eve's Kiss
This is a really pretty shimmery mauve pink shade. It's smooth and creamy and I love using this for a subtle look all over the lid

Paradise on Earth
This one is a lovely neutral shimmery brown shade. It's very close to my skin tone so I rarely use this one on it's own, but usually layer it on my lid to create some dimension

Woooooahmygod this is one of my fave shades! It's a dark chocolatey golden shimmery shade. I love using this for a light and subtle smokey eye in the outer V or to build up some dimension in my crease.

This one is probably one of my least used shades just because it's so close to my skin tone. I like using this one as a base for my crease as it's a browny grey with a hint of shimmer to it and it really builds up any colour I put over the top of it.

This is a lovely dark brown matte shade which blends perfectlyyyyyy. It's lovely as a crease shade or to darken up the outer V for a nice subtle look. It's really buildable so I could definitely use this for a darker smokey eye.

This is again probably one of my least used shades as it's a bit more sheer than the rest. It's a light brown with a hint of gold glitter - it's nice as an all over lid shade for an everyday effortless look

Adam's Apple
This is such a pretty bright lemony green shade! I haven't played around too much with this one but I can imagine it being beautiful as an all over lid colour

This is one of my favourite shades in the whole palette - it's a beautiful buttery shimmery lemon green. I love this one as a lid shade or inner corner highlight to add a pop of colour!

This is also one of my favourite shades, it's a shimmery bright green and I love putting this all over my lid to really brighten up my eyes. It's suuuuper pigmented and blendable and looks incredible as an inner corner highlight too!

This is such a pretty shimmery emerald green shade! This is again one of my favourite shades and it looks amazing as a lid colour or to darken up in the outer V.

Tree of Life
Wooooh mama, this is a beautiful matte dark forest green shade. It's beautiful in the crease or to darken up the outer V for a pop of colour. It's not chalky and super easy to blend too!

Overall, I'm in love with this palette. I find that although it swings heavily to the green side of the colour wheel, it's really versatile and good for every day use. I find myself reaching for this palette a lot and opting to take it when I go travelling.
