Review: Sleek i-Divine 2012 Limited Edition (Glory) Palette

Remember I had won Sleek's Facebook giveaway and won their Limited Edition Collection? :D Well, I actually wanted to keep it closed and locked away because it was so pretty! I still haven't used the blush or pout polish! LOL! But I thought I should do a review on these soon since it is a LE collection and maybe some of you might like to buy it before it's gone. :) So, I hope this review helps you decide whether you want to get the i-Divine Glory palette! This is my first Sleek eyeshadow palette, so I hope I can do this review some justice. LOL!

Description: The 2012 collection i-Divine in Glory is jam packed with colours that will pop on all skin tones. The top row of the palette consists of highly pigmented shimmering gold, bronze and silver shades, with a contrasting bottom row featuring rich primary hues such as deep blue, yellow and red. Choose from 12 London underground inspired shade names, such as ‘Victoria’, ‘Central’, and ‘Circle’!

Price: The price of the Glory palette is 9.99$, a good price to pay for a 12 colour palette. :)

Packaging: The entire collection came in a black box with pretty pink paper inside and was very well packed, you can check out the packaging here.
The palette itself was in the colourful box below. I love the actual palette's packing, it is really well... Sleek!

The only thing that irks me, but is also kinda a good thing, is that the palette is hard to open. I've got it now but initially I chipped my polish a lot! LOL! But at least the palette won't just open in your bag!
The size is as big as my hand, I expected it to be bigger after seeing a lot of reviews but I'm not disappointed in any way. :)

Quality: Can you say AMAZING?! The Glory Palette colours are richly pigmented and all but two are shimmery. What I really like about this palette is there is a good balance between neutrals and brights. For someone who doesn't want too much makeup and a few choice shades for most occassions, this is perfect!

All the names!

All the shades are London and Olympic based. The first four in the top row remind me of the medals where as the others are based of the colours of various London underground lines. :) I also feel there maybe inspiration taken from the Olympic rings. But I might just be going into it a bit too much! LOL!

The Colours: 

Top Row:
Tube: Champagne gold
Overground: Beige with silver shimmer
Bakerloo: Bronze
Jubilee: Silver
Platform (matte): Grey
Northern: Black with blue shimmer
Bottom Row: 
District: Teal geen
Hammersmith and City: Pinky red
Piccadilly: Dark navy
Circle: Egg yolk yellow
Victoria: Bright blue
Central (matte): Scarlet red

I find all of them to pig brilliantly pigmented except for Platform, which you will see in the swatches, barely shows up. The staying power is good! With primer they last for 6-7 hours on oily lids, although lighter colours like the yellow look darker later. :/

The swatches are without any base, that gap in the middle of the top row is actually the swatch for Platform! LOL! These look great with a white base but also work well with a normal primer.

A lovely combo of neutrals and brights, great to travel with because of the variety of colours! The quality is brilliant, except for Platform which was very disappointing. :( I feel like it's a small piece of Olympic makeup memorabilia, and a good palette to have especially at the price. Sadly they don't ship these to my US girls but maybe get a friend from across the pond to buy one for you?
I'm in love with Sleek now! Before I had tried only their lipstick, Coral Reef which I had bought in a blogsale but now I'm hooked! I already received my second palette! LOL! The Acid palette!

I really want to thank Sleek for picking me as a winner, I got to try their amazing products!

I did a look with this palette but it isn't as crazy as usual, I wasn't in a mad mood! >.< I'll try a few more later and post them. I used only Tube, Bakerloo, District and Nothern for this look.


Will you be buying this palette?
Thanks for reading!
