I think you can all imagine my excitement when I found out Sephora was bringing out two Sleek palettes here in Greece. It was the first sleek item added to my collection and it was totally worth it. The other one availiable was the Au Naturel Palette, but I have too many neutral eyeshadows, so I passed. About the Darks Palette? It was love at first sight! This item is totally right up my street!
The packaging is the classic sleek one (matte black). It comes with a mirror (perfect size to do your makeup when you are on a trip), and a sponge applicator. The eyeshadows are very pigmented and blend well, even though they do kick up a lot of powder.
Let's take a closer look :
There are 12 matte colours in this palette.
1) Orbit : A deap teal.
2) Ink : A dark royal blue.
3) Highness : A purple with blue undertones.
4) Thunder : A mid-tone grey.
5) Maple : A dusty burgundy.
6) Flesh : A yellow - tan shade.
7) Noir : A dark charcoil.
8) Dune : A light sand - vanilla colour.
9) Pillow Talk : this is a bold white colour.
10) Paper Bag : A chocolate brown with red undertones.
11) Villan : A violet/eggplant purple.
12) Fern : A deep green.
Overall, I think it is a great product . Be careful, it may not be "safe" for people who like settle, everyday makeup. This is a great value for money product (only 10 € for twelve 1,1g eyeshadows). It won't be around for too long, as it is a one shot product here in Greece, so check it out next time you visit your local Sephora.
