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

Python
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.

Forbidden
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.

Flora
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.

Entwined
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

Fig
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!

Evergreen
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!

Fauna
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.
