Review | Sleek MakeUP i-Divine Arabian Nights Smoke & Shadows Limited Edition Palette

Sleek MakeUp have just released a new limited edition i-Divine palette that captures the beauty and seduction of Arabic eye makeup looks in twelve strong, smoky shades. I was so excited about this palette that I went ahead and bought it right away.
The packaging is the same as for other i-Divine palettes - sleek (no pun intended) black casing that houses twelve beautiful eyeshadows and a good sized mirror together with a double ended sponge applicator. 
There is also a protective film with the eyeshadow names on it. Being limited edition, the palette also has the actual name on the front of the case. I like how tightly the palette closes and another point worth mentioning is how travel friendly they are. The carton box that the palette is supplied in really captures the essence of a mysterious Arabian night - with smoke like effects and arabesque patterns all over. Definitely worth keeping :)
The eyeshadows all have very good staying power and I only use a primer base for the sake of it! All eyeshadows in the palette are mineral based and on the whole, they offer excellent pigmentation. Now let's have a closer look at the shades and a brief description of the colours.

Scheherazade's Tale ~ light beige with a metallic finish. Excellent colour payoff for such a light coloured shade.
Gold Souk ~ sparkly yellow gold with warm undertones and a glittery/metallic finish. Fairly good pigmentation.
Genie ~ rich bronzy brown with a metallic finish. Very intense colour pay-off.
Black Magic ~ blackened navy blue with a satin finish. Average colour pay-off.

Aladdin's Lamp ~ medium/dark brown with a frosted finish and good colour pay-off.
Sultan's Garden ~ dark smoky green with gold sparkles. Average pigmentation.
Stallion ~ dark burgundy with a matte finish and semi-sheer pigmentation.
Sorcerer ~ darker version of Black Magic with purple shimmer and a satin finish. Good pigmentation.

Hocus Pocus ~  rich dark green with a metallic finish and incredibly intense pigmentation.

Simbad's Seas ~ rich bluish purple with a frosted finish. Offers amazing colour pay-off.

Valley of Diamonds ~ medium wine shade with gold sparkles and a satin finish. Really good pigmentation.

1001 Nights ~ deep black with a pearly sheen with a very rich pigmentation.

That's all about this beautiful palette. My personal favourites are Hocus Pocus, Simbad's Seas, Valley Of Diamonds and Genie. You can find the Sleek MakeUP i-Divine Arabian Nights palette on the Sleek website for €9.99.
