Sleek make up Bohemian i-Divine eyeshadow palette

This palette was inspired by antique trinkets, vintage finds and Sienna Miller and contains a range of shimmery and matte colours.

The palette is made of the same material as all the other i-Divine palettes but the actual casing is white rather than black. Personally I think white fits in with the Bohemian theme more than black but it does get dirtier quicker. When I closed the palette after swatching I had some eyeshadow on my fingers and it immediately made a mark on the outside, although luckily it came off easily when wiped with a tissue.

Instead of the usual plastic outer packaging this palette comes with a decorated cardboard packaging, which I much prefer as the design on there is so pretty, especially on the back!

Of the 12 colours there are 3 shimmery ones (1st and 2nd ones from the left on the top row and the 2nd one from the left on the bottom row) and all the others are matte.

The actual eyeshadows are smooth, easy to apply and blendable. Like all the other Sleek makeup palettes the eyeshadows are nicely pigmented and I found that the shimmery ones were creamier and more pigmented than the matte ones.
The beige colour from the bottom row is also almost the same colour as my arm so it didn't show up much on the photo however I've swatched it on my finger so you can see the colour better.

This Bohemian palette is limited edition and will be available from Superdrug on the 17th March, priced at £4.99. I was sent this palette from the PR company for review purposes.

What do you think of the colours? Will you be purchasing this palette?

  1. I dont like the white packaging at all, but I still will most probably pick this up. At £4.99 its hardly a huge cost.

  9. Nooberella- I know what you mean about fallout, I hate it when eyeshadows get onto your cheeks! I found the matte ones less creamy and crumbly than the shimmery ones, although I prefer the shimmer x

    India- Glad you like it x

    Random London Girl- Yeah they're not as easy to wear as the storm one x

  16. Ooh lucky you getting this. I don't know whether I'll get it, I have most of them but I got rid of Curious I think it was because they were matt and I just couldnt use them as much as I did the others. I will have to have a look :) xx
