Sleek Makeup have added a new palette to their i-Divine range, the Enchanted Forest palette and I got mine locally from Roseberry for €13.99 for 12 eyeshadows.
I expected Sleek to go the extra mile with the box as there is nothing creative about it. The palette comes in their signature sleek, black case with a mirror and 12 eyeshadow pans with 1.1g of product each and a transparent film with the eyeshadow names on it. The palette also comes with the usual double ended sponge applicator.
The palette was inspired by an enchanted forest and the names of the shadows really do reflect that, as they are named after symbolic items and characters from the popular fairy tale, Cinderella. The proposed colour palette is also very reminiscent of a forest with deep, dark hues spanning all throughout the palette with the exception of a couple of shades and of course, since the palette is inspired by Cinderella, there are a couple of blue shades as well.
Below are the swatches of the eyeshadows in the palette with flash and no primer:
Glass Slipper - matte light beige, almost white
Beatrice - matte magenta
Perla - pearlescent periwinkle with lavender and grey undertones
Fairy Godmother - pearlescent champagne with peachy/pink undertones
Grand Duke - shimmery dark blue with strong purple undertones
Drizella - pearlescent dark olive green with brown undertones
Pumpkin - pearlescent gold
Prince Charming - matte dark teal
Happily Ever After - pearlescent grey with bluish undertones
Anastasia - matte aubergine
Daphne - pearlescent dark green with dark grey undertones
Lady Tremaine - shimmery blackened aubergine with reddish purple reflects
Pigmentation is excellent for all twelve shades and my favourites are Perla, Drizella and Daphne. There is a good mix of shimmer and matte shades which is something I usually look for in a palette and I love that there are a lot of unique shades in there. The texture is buttery smooth for all formulations and the colours are very blendable and not powdery at all.
If you don't like colourful eyeshadow this palette is not for you but if you do like to experiment, do go ahead and get this!
