Sorry I haven't been a regular poster - it's been a bit of a trying week. We are trying to figure out how to move for my Masters programme and it's all become a little stressful! But I'm back; to talk about the Sleek Ultra Mattes i-Divine Palette in V2 Darks, which you can get for £7 from Sleek or £6.99 from Superdrug, who are also running a 3 for 2 promotion at the moment.

There are a few chalky shades in this palette - the blues, which I chose to do my eye look with, were a little chalky and difficult to work with, which is why I was not as pleased with my eye makeup as I could have been. However, I've played around with lots of the other shades and have been very impressed.
Just look at the swatches of the last three colours, and maple. They are so gorgeous, and there are so many looks you could create.
If you bought both palettes I can imagine a lot of fun mixing colours from both, and since they are on 3 for 2 right now, you could get yourself an extra gift!
Here's the look I did:
Here's what I used
NYX HD Eye Primer
Sleek Brow Kit in Dark
Clinique High Impact Mascara
Sleek Ultra Mattes i-Divine Palette in V2 Darks:
- Thunder (inner corner)
- Orbit (lid)
- Ink (outer v)
You can see that Orbit was particularly difficult to work with, but this has not been true of several of the other colours in the palette. And I happen to think that Orbit is a lovely colour anyway, and might work better patted over the top of a blue base like a Maybelline Color Tattoo.
What do you think? Which of the two palettes do you prefer? Which would you get most use from?
