Review & Swatches: Sleek i-divine Eyeshadow Palette in Ultra Matte V2

Ok, I know, I know another Sleek I-divine eyeshadow palette review? Yes, I would say I'm sorry but I'm just not. This palette along with the other 2 I own (you can find review and swatches here and here) are some of my staples and the palettes I always reach for.
On today's hit list is the I-divine palette in ultra matte V2. There is a V1 which is a mixture of super bright all matte shades. V2 is a darker version of this palette. All matte shades! A dream!


As you can tell this palette is very loved and I've already hit pan on a couple of my favourite shades - praying these don't die out on me too soon!






Just look at the raaaaaange of pretty shades in this palette! A lot of them look barely touched, but don't worry they have all been played with!

Orbit
I've never seen a dark teal/turquoise shade which is completely flat and matte and I really love this one! Really nice and sultry in the outer corner of the eye or in the crease for a nice colourful (but still dark) smoky eye look.


Ink
The name to this shade is pretty perfect - a dark dark inky blue shade which is a really welcome alternative to black for a smoky eye. Perfect on the lower lash line and outer corner


Highness
This is such a unique shade - a purple/pink shade which is super pretty and brightening in the crease or outer corner


Noir
Another really welcome change from the typical black, this is a super dark charcoal grey which is really nice as an eyeliner and blended out or for a super dark and sultry smoky eye.


Dune
I don't really get any use out of this shade as it's near enough non existent on my skin tone, which is a shame because a shade darker and it would have been a lovely base shade!


Pillow Talk
This shade....is probably the most pointless eye shadow shade I have ever come across in my entire life. Y'all know how much I love Sleek products, especially their eye shadow palettes - but Sleek, the heck?? What is this shade? Please tell me which pasty ass, mayonnaise complexion this would ever show up on cause this is just silly.


(Bottom row: left to right: Thunder, Maple, Flesh, Paper Bag, Villain, Fern)


Thunder
I looooove this shade, and I didn't realise how much I loved it as a crease/transition shade until recently. It's a really lovely light grey shade which is perfect at hollowing out my crease. This is also amazing as a contour on my skin tone for a really dramatic and chiselled look.


Maple
Probably my most used shade in the entire palette, this is my favourite transition shade that's different from the usual matte brown shade. It's a nice burgundy shade but not too red based so it doesn't take away from any other shade I might be using


Flesh
*deep breath* unfortunately, this is another near enough useless shade as (the name is very fitting) this just blends into my skin tone and isn't pigmented enough to show up.


Paper Bag
My other favourite from the palette, this is a perfect brown neutral shade for my transition colour without it completely disappearing in colour. I really liked combining Maple and Paper Bag to really amp up the shade.


Villain
This is a really interesting shade as it looks so purple in the pan but comes across almost a slightly red/purple based brown. This is fast becoming another favourite crease shade.


Fern
Ohhhhh my gosh, this is a beautiful dark forest green shade which looks amazing on the outer corner of a green eye look. It's the shade ideal for anyone who loves doing bright make up looks but still wants to be able to smoke it out and make it look a bit more sultry.


This palette (minus the non existent on 'brown skin tones' shadows) are all super pigmented, easy to blend, and smooth. I always reach of this combo of colours and it's become a real staple in my collection.


Have you tried any of Sleek's iDivine palettes?
