NEW Sleek i-Divine Garden of Eden Palette | Review + Swatches




Hey Beauties...
While I was in Norwich on Monday I picked up the gorgeous New i-Devine Palette from Sleek, I usually give it about 2 weeks before I review a product, but I just couldn't hold off showing you the beauty of the Garden of Eden Palette, my mum bought this when we went shopping in February and I kicked myself for not getting it! But now I have it hehe. I have been playing around with this since I bought it, make-up doesn't stay untouched for very long with me. I have the i-Devine i-Candy which I have used a lot so I'm familiar with the quality of the shadows themselves. So let me get right in and show you the beauty that is the i-Devine Garden of Eden Palette.

Garden of Eden is inspired by natures earthy tones, which echoes the hues of a tropical jungle. I love that the outer packaging has a snake skin print on it reflection on the nature colours that lie within the palette, This packaging is Limited edition, while stocks last. There were only a few left with this design so, you know me, had to grab it as I do love limited edition packagings. The palette itself is in the permanent collection so don't worry it will be around for a long time! 


As for the palette itself, its just the standard case for the i-Devine palettes, which is a stunning, sleek and elegant, matte case with the words 'Sleek Makeup' printing on the top in a gloss finish. I love how thin these palette are as it makes them perfect to just slip in your makeup mag for on the go or traveling. The clip on these palette are quite tough to open, but at least you know its not going to pop open in your bag, and if your a mum like me, little fingers can't pry it open when your not around. 

Sleek Garden of Eden Palette | £7.99
There are twelve gorgeous, super pigmented, shades in this palette ranging from ultra-wearable earthy browns, dusky purples and organic greens. Each i-Devine palette comes with at least one dark matte shade making it perfect to create a full defined smoky eye.
This palette has an array of matte, shimmers and glitters, again making it perfect to create a number of stunning looks. I don't usually go for green eyeshadows, but this palette has just the right tones and I think would look perfect on brown eyes and will complement my skin tone and colouring beautifully.

The twelve stunning colours in this palette are:


-Gates of Eden: Coppery orange with a golden sheen with frosted finish.
-Eve's Kiss: Pinky mauve with a frosted finish.
-Paradise on Earth: Medium-dark taupe-brown with a metallic finish.
-Python: Medium-dark chocolate brown with a red undertone and metallic finish.
-Forbiddon: a matte purple toned grey satin finish with golden micro glitters.
-Flora: Deep satin matte chocolate brown.


-Entwined: Grey toned taupe with golden micro glitters and a satin matte finish.
-Adams Apple: Light yellow toned apple green with a matte finish.
-Fig: Light golden green with a metallic finish.
-Evergreen: Light-medium mint green with a slight yellow undertone and a frost finish.
-Fauna: Medium-dark forest green with a frosted and slightly metallic finish.
-Tree of Life: Dark green with a matte finish.

How gorgeous are all these colours! This palette definitely does remind me of the tropical forest and I think will be perfect for spring this year! I found every shade to be beautifully pigmented and extremely wearable as they can either be warn sheer for a day time look or built up for a stunning evening look. The only shade I had an issue with is Adams apple, as its such a light pale colour if you want it to be visible you will need to really pack it on or use a wet brush, but as a highlight its perfect.

The quality of sleek eyeshadow palettes are incredible and I would go as far as to say I love them just as much as my Urban Decay Naked palette. I do find they last longer on the eyes with a primer but what shadow doesn't right? I believe this palette is perfect for every skin tone and will look amazing on anyone. My mum has a completely different skin tone to me and this palette works just as well for her as it does for me! 

Overall I am in-love with this palette and will definitely be creating many gorgeous looks with this over the spring months! I have been having a play around with it for a few days now and have already come up with some gorgeous spring looks, so keep an eye out for them.
You can pick up this palette in Superdrug or online at sleekmakeup.com, which also ship internationally, the palette cost just £7.99!! Bargain!!
