The newest instalment of the Sleek i-Divine eyeshadow palettes is called Garden of Eden, and rather appropriately, it comes in a snakeskin print box;
Sleek eyeshadow palettes are extremely good value of money, and come with a selection of 12 colours in each palette. They are good quality too, with soft and pigmented colours (in the past, I’ve found the palettes a bit fragile because of how soft they can be). Here’s a closer look at the palette…
Garden of Eden is a palette right up my street, with a mixture of plum-browns and greens. I love green eyeshadows and I’ve been waiting for a green combo!
Each palette is not too big to carry around and comes with a large mirror and firm sponge tipped applicator.
The top row:
Gates of Eden – Bronzey orange, soft and pigmented
Eve’s Kiss – A medium lilac
Paradise on Earth – A metallic grey lavender
Python – A lovely rich brown metallic, my favourite of the top row
Forbidden – A chalky pale grey lilac, one of the less pigmented colours
Flora – A matte brown plum
Entwined – A brown with gold sparkles, the least pigmented shade in the palette
Adam’s Apple – Matte acid green
Fig – Light shimmery green
Evergreen – Shimmery light leaf green
Fauna – Pretty mid toned metallic green
Tree of Life – Deep Emerald
As you can see from the swatches, pigmentation varies in this palette, but I definitely had my favourites – Evergreen, Fauna, Tree of Life and Python in particular (used in my eye looks). The palette could perhaps do with a pale all over shade or highlighter colour.
I really did enjoy wearing these colours – they are unusual and quite good fun. I also found the eyeshadow stayed put well, although this could also be because of the primer I used underneath. The colours are nicely buildable. For £7.99 it’s a bargain especially if you want to experiment with greens which I know some people are a bit wary of.
The Garden of Eden Palette is £7.99 and you can buy it here.
