Sleek Makeup i-Divine Showstoppers Palette-Review, Photos, Swatches and Look


My first purchase from Sleek Makeup and I definitely am happy about this one. The i-Divine Showstopper palette, which is limited edition, comes with the best in eye shadows Sleek Makeup has to offer. And, I kind of feel lucky to have grabbed it after the launch =D.

On the website it states, "The cream of the crop!
Showstoppers i-Divine features twelve of Sleek MakeUP's legendary eye shadow shades. Renowned for their supreme pigmentation, bold colour and spectacular finish, this palette is for totally show stopping eyes!"  

True that! But I'll come to that part later. First on, I love the packaging. The kit comes in a stiff cardboard box with a picture printed on the back and a hot pink body inside. The kit itself is sturdy and matte textured. It's the size and weight of a smart phone, very professional looking. It's prone to scratches though, but that doesn't matter much, as what gets old will form some lines right? It comes with a two way applicator and a mirror under the lid. It has 12 eye shadows which are matte and shimmery in texture. I'll talk about each of them individually.


1. Paraguaya: Is a sheer nude color, which barely shows off. It is matte in texture and will best work in combination with a darker shade. I will not say that I don't like it, because this can be put to use.

2. Sunset: Is a deep copper red tone shade which is shimmery in texture and super pigmented. 

3. Me Myself & Eye: A snow white color, perfect for highlighting under the brow and this one actually shows on my skin. Shimmery in texture.

4. Bad Girl: One of my favorites from the entire palette. A super pigmented warm green which is perfect for smokey eyes or model makeup. Infused with a high dose of shimmer.

5. Noir: It is a metallic grey. Shimmery in texture.

6. Ultramattes V2: The classic carbon black. This one is a matte finish and very pigmented.

7. Oh So Special: A sheer matte grey. Does not have a lot of color payoff but it can be used alongside other shades to create a nice look.

8. Bohemian: A nice warm peachy pink, matte in texture and nicely pigmented. You can wear it alone and swipe some eye liner over it for a soft daytime look.

9. Storm: Is a matte, highly pigmented, dark jean blue shade and another of my favorites from the palette. I've used this as the primary shade in my look for this post.

10. Sparkle: A nice shiny white-nude. Great for highlight and application on the tear duct. Shimmery in texture and very pigmented. 

11. Au Natural: A dazzling purple and my favorite no 3. This shade is gorgeous. It is matte in texture but infused with glitter. Very pigmented.

12. Graphite: Is a classic warm brown and shimmery in texture. It is also highly pigmented and can be worn alone.

All eye shadows except for Paraguaya and Oh So Special are blend able and easy to work with. The former will require some technique. They feel smooth without any granular feeling and the best thing about these shadows is, NO FALLOUT! Isn't that amazing? I was surprised when I didn't see any powder under my eyes when I was doing my look. They stay on for a good five hours, which is reasonable. May stay longer if applied over an eye shadow primer.


Rating: 5/5
