Sleek ultra mattes ❤BRIGHTS PALETTE❤ review

Hey ladies ,

So summer is in the heat already. But sad to say here in the Philippines Summer ain't pretty much happy here. The weather here in the Philippines changes from time to time :(

But it's not the end of feeling the spirit in you the summer BRIGHTS so why not have fun and experiment with bright eyeshadows on your eyes.

So since Sleek has been giving a new colors for the palette, they came something with their new i-divine palette in their Ultra mattes BRIGHTS PALTTE.

I purchased one at Digital Train Case online shop for P650.00.

Let's Start from it's packaging:

The palette comes in a slim rectangular box (Right Side). Sleek made a pretty good job on the box design. They made a unique way with lots of loose bright eyeshadows.

The palette (Left Side) comes in a very Sleek Classic Black rectangular shape.
Also it has Sleek's brand name printed on the palette.

Also inside the box it comes with two Sleek mini brochure about sleek's products:

Here's how the palette from the inside looks like: 

The palette has a transparent screen on top of the eyeshadows, because this serves as a one way protection for the surfaces of the colors. Plus the transparent screen comes with each indicated names for ever eyeshadows.

The palette comes with a double sided Sponge applicator and a mirror on the other side of the palette. 

Let's go further with the palette shall we  . . . .

Here's how the palette looks like without the transparent screen on top :

Every eyeshadows are totally BRIGHT as ever. ^_^

The colors describes as Summer, Fun and bold look.

time for some SWATCHES . . . 

(First Row)

Every eyeshadows are matte and so pigmented on the first row.

The colors are absolutely A-M-A-Z-I-N-G ! !
I already indicated the names on the photo for every swatch.
The color that was catchy to me was Pucker, Sugarlite, Dragon fly and Bamm! . 

(Second Row)

Above is the second row of the eyeshadows on the palette. I have observed that the second  row consist of semi bright to cool eyeshadow colors. The one that i like best on the second row is Cricket, bolt , Strike and Floss

The only thing that i didn't like is Crete, because it's not that much pigmented plus I thought Crete would be much of a bolder kind of grey. And it's a bit similar to Pow instead. 

Now I did Compare the photo's from without the flash of the camera & with the flash of the camera.

The first row did a good job, because the colors didn't change at all.
The colors stand out so well and so bold.

The second row well, it went good, but only few did stand out. 
Floss (The pinky one) went a little fade and also Crete as well. 


*First thing that I like about the palette is the Packaging itself. It's unique.
* I like how sleek advertises their products in their mini brochure that comes with it.
*I love how the palette was designed by sleek because it's classy and chic with the palette's color in black.
*The palette also is multi functional, because it comes with a mirror on the other side of the palette.
*The eyeshadows are pretty amazing to work with because it doesn't have any much fall outs.
*The eyeshadows are pigmented with it's color. 
*I think sleek made a job well done with the eyeshadow colors, because the first top row consist of Summer-y Bright colors. while the second bottom row consist of Soft Spring-y Bright colors.


* The only thing that i didn't like on the palette was the Sponge applicator, instead i'd prefer the other side of the applicator was a brush.

See you all in my next review. :)

Take Care & God Bless!

Wet n wild ❤ Vanity & Lust Quad Review ❤

Hey Pretty Dolls  

I'm Back again for another makeup review and I have been eyeing on these lovelies for quite a while. So I purchased two quads from Beautoussisters Shop

Their shop contains lots of cosmetic brands which you can choose :)

Just check out their Facebook here:

The first quad that i purchased from their online shop is the wet n wild quad in "Vanity" .

the palette comes with a basic instructions on the back of the quad, this is to use these lovely shadows on your eyes. 
The instructions are basically points on giving you a idea on how it would look like on your eyes. :

For the eye shadows here's a clear view :

The quad contains (3) Three Matte shadows and (3) Shimmers.

Plus the quad comes with a Sponge applicator and a mini eye brush

Now Let's compare the First (3) eyeshadows on the Left side.

The first (3) eyeshadows are in matte because from it's texture the eyeshadows are bold and has a smooth surface.

On the right side of the matte eyeshadows, there are (3) Shimmers.

They are Shimmers because they have these kind of golden or silver-ish flex in it.
Plus Shimmers tend to give that shinny effect.

now for some SWATCHES . . . 

Here's a Clear shot without the flash of my camera, and how the eyeshadows looks like :

Notice how the eyeshadows stand out even in a natural view. The Mattes did show up and caught the Dark brown, Milky-Taupe Brown and the creamy white color.

Also the Shimmers is so pigmented they did stand out too.

Here's a second photo where in the camera is set with a flash.

Again the eyeshadows was caught again because they are so pigmented and vibrant the color didn't fade at all. 

Now let's move on to my second quad which is in "Lust" .

The quad has also a instruction at the back:

Here's how the eyeshadows looks like on the quad:

Again the quad contains (6) eyeshadows, and there are (3) Mattes & (3) shimmers.

Let's compare the mattes of the quad and the shimmers in it.

On the (LFET SIDE) there are three mattes that the quad consist.
(TOP) the first is a Pinky to white color, and the middle one is a matte medium plummy color, and the bottom is a Dark Egg Plant eyeshadow color.

The Eyeshadows doesn't have any specific name that's why i just described the colors according to it's appearance.

They are matte because their surfaces are in a bold color.

The quad also consist of (3) shimmers on the right side portion. Shimmers? because you can tell from it's appearance the eyeshadows has some sort of gold or silver flex in it. Plus it has that shinny effect.

On the (TOP) the eyeshadow is in a shimmery pinky cream color, the middle is kind of a Gunmetal, and the last color is in a deep space purple-y color

now off for their SWATCHES . . .

The first picture is a swatch where in i didn't use the flash of the camera, instead it's in manual mode.

what I love about these swatches is, the eyeshadows has so much pigmented in them and the colors does stand out pretty well.

The mattes here are absolutely lovely it's just the kind of matte shades i want :).
For the shimmers the flex in it is in there but it's not that shimmery and has less fall outs.

Here's another second photo where in the eyeshadows are taken with the flash of my camera.
Again the colors gave me another good impression because the color didn't change at all, it stays bold. The mattes stays the same and for it's shimmers, the flash caught the flex in it but this time, with the flash of my camera it shows that it has lesser fall outs.

Now for my Pros & Cons, these are just based on my own opinion on this review about the quads. 


* The first i liked on the quads is the colors of the eyeshadows, (or course! :D ) because from its mattes  and shimmer they combine just perfect for the look you want.
*The eyeshadows are pigmented.
*The eyeshadows has less fall outs on it's shimmers.
*It's easier to carry along with it on your small purse.
*The eyeshadows are compact in a rectangular shape which is good.


*What i did't like on the quads are the small brush that comes along on the quad. Because the bristles are stiff and fanning out. It's hard to use the mini brush because it might just cost a lot of mess with the type of bristles on it.
*The quad doesn't have any mirror on it. So it's not multi functional because you do need a mirror for your application. Or at least the quad should have come with a mini mirror just to fit for your eye shape.

Well i think that's it dolls for my reviews for today.
See you all in my next review.

Take care & God Bless!
