I have something for matte eyeshadows and this palette has full of them (12 to be exact). Matte eyeshadows can either be a hit or miss as formulation tends to be trickier that shimmery and satin shades. They are usually harder to blend out as well. I was excited and nervous getting this – if it works, wonderful. If it sucks, I have a completely useless palette. Sleek has yet to fail me, so I gave it a try!
This is a mineral eyeshadow palette so I expected significant fallout (as with other mineral eyeshadows) but these shadows pleasantly surprised me. Fall out was almost close to minimal! Amazing. Colours are pigmented and they apply really nicely on the lid without any patchiness – which is pretty darn good for matte shadows! The shadows also blend well (easier than I thought it would be) which is great as matte shadows can be hard to blend. Lasting power of these shadows is decent, about 8 hours of wear with a primer underneath.
Let’s dive into the swatches:

Overall, this palette is a great matte palette with high quality shadows! I highly recommend it as it really adds to your matte shadow collection. I got mine off Luxola at SGD$22 which you can check out here.
Here’s a look I did using this palette! A soft cut crease that is suitable for almost any occasion! Details can be found via my instagram (here).
