What a lovely day today & what a coincidence I am reviewing a lovely product today as well.
Any guesses about it ..Oh you lovely ladies already know what it is !! How clever :)
Ok its the Monaco Palette by SLEEK.As you all know that SLEEK is famous for its palettes.This was the first time I ever ordered Sleek & a Sleek Palette.The Mediterranean collection came out in June this year and it includes the Santorini blush, Monte Carlo lip conditioner and Monaco palette.I wanted to order the blush in the beginning but later on at a closer inspection I thought that it was a bit too bright for me.Anyways I ordered the Monaco palette and here it is.
First of all I am really in love with the packaging and the sleekness of the palette.I think it looks very elegant.It has Mediterranean collection printed at its top as well and for those who own a couple of Sleek palettes to find it without opening all of them ;)
The back of the palette is quite colorful though with the Sleek i-divine Insignia and some more info there.
Ok so now lets get to what lies inside of this palette.As it was a part of the Mediterranean collection,just having a look at the shades in there compel me to go to a holiday in the Mediterranean region and take this with me.The colors consist of blues, greens,browns & coppers & they all remind me of the Blues and greens of the water,browns of the beaches and the tanned skin & coppers for the sun shine!
There are 12 shades in the palette both matte & shimmery.Majority of them are matte.There is a large mirror set up inside like all the other Sleek palettes & also there is an applicator with it.I love the way all the colors are named accordingly.Lets have a closer look at the eye shadows.
Here are the swatches of the whole palette,these are without an eye shadow base and are single swiped.
Top Row(L to R) Bamboo, Aquamarine, Midnight, Garden, Sunset, Washed Ashore, Magenta Madness.
Bottom Row(L to R) Summer Breeze, Sand Walker, Kiwi Zest, Lotus Flower, Humming Bird, Moors Treasure
~Bamboo - Matte shade.Good for highlighting purpose,nearly same as my skin tone
~Aquamarine - turquoise green matte shade,good to be used as an all over eye color
~Midnight Garden - navy blue matte shade well pigmented and can be used best to add depth to the outer V
~Sunset - Red with orange tone,nicely pigmented and great for all over eye color.
~`Washed Ashore - orange matte shade
~Magenta Madness - Pink matte shade a bit less pigmented than the others still pretty
~Summer Breeze - turquoise matte shade,can be used to brighten the inner corner of the eye or lower lash line
~Sand Walker - matte nude shade, still dont know how to make the best of it!I am not very happy with the outcome of this shade.
~Kiwi Zest - lime green shimmery shade with great pigmentation
~Lotus Flower - lilac shimmery shade with great pigmentation
~Hummingbird -aqua shimmery shade great pigmentation
~Moors Treasure - wine colored matte shade with good pigmentation can be best used to create an outer V.
Overall I am quite satisfied by the colors and there pigmentation.Offcourse as all eye shadows they will do even better with a good eye shadow base and will stay longer too.I ll soon be doing some eye makeup looks and will share them with you.
I ordered it through International Makeup in Pakistan & am thankful to them that they provide access to those brands which are unavailable to our Desi Girls here.If you want to order it you can order through them and a safe and sound delivery is ensured as well.
Rest of you can order through Sleek website for $10.50 & they ship worldwide.
Tell me which Sleek palettes do you own & what you think about this one.
Thanks for reading.
Stay Happy Always.
