Once fall hits (which it has officially— now follow suit, California weather!!), I start breaking out the jewel tone and sultry eyeshadows. Smoky eyes are my favorite to do and the best shades always come out around this time of year.
I have always wanted to get my hands on one of the Sleek MakeUp iDivine palettes for a while after seeing so many gorgeous looks created with them. Storm is one of their popular ones, and it’s got some great shades for the season ranging from rich greens and blues to earthy browns.
I used the palette in my recent fall makeup tutorial last week, so you can see what type of look this can give you. The palette offers a lot to work with in terms of mixing and matching shades, and you get a good range of tones so that you don’t have to stray outside of the palette to complete your look.
The Sleek MakeUp iDivine Storm palette is mostly made up of shimmer & satin shades, with only three mattes. While I would have preferred more mattes for adding dimension, the matte black allows you to tweak some of the deeper satins to be suitable for crease colors. All of the shades have names, but they are printed on the plastic insert which I know some people toss. However, since there’s so much shimmer in this palette, it might be helpful to keep the plastic to help avoid fallout from one shade getting into another.
The stain/shimmer shades are all very soft and are more pigmented than the matte colors. Because of their texture, you can pick up the most color when using your finger, but a dense brush will work well. The matte shades are much stiffer while still giving you a good amount of color, except for the light beige, which I would use as a blending or transition shade.
I would 100% suggest you use a primer with these shadows, or they’ll crease rather quickly. As I mentioned in my fall glam tutorial, a primer that dries down will work way better than a creamy base to hold these in place. Also, using the light beige all over the lid before applying other shades will help blending once you’ve added darker colors.
For the quality, the Sleek MakeUp iDivine Storm palette is a steal at less than ten bucks. In the US, the brand is only available online, but in the UK (where they’re from) I believe they are available in Superdrug and other high street stores.
