The amount of eye palettes you can buy these days are pretty eyewatering (I’m sorry!) so it’s little wonder most of us find the process of choosing one a little too much sometimes.
Back in 2012 I won tickets to The Clothes Show along with a goodie bag courtesy of Sleek. Out of everything I was lucky enough to win, the item I loved the most using it pretty much everyday was their I-Divine palette in Storm. After using it to the point where the mirror had broken off and I’d accidentally hoovered one of the shades clean off the pan (next time I’ll use a wipe to clean my makeup!) I decided it was time for out with the old in with the new.
I had planned to re-purchase this palette during my recent beauty spree to Meadowhall however with a shopping list as long as Kim K’s surgery record I simply ran out of time! I was delighted to see Sleek had now brought itself to my local branch of Boots within the last week meaning no more two hour treks to the nearest outlet.
As you can see I pulled out all the brand new tester slots and had a good old neb n’ swatch!
Since I last owned this palette they’ve since named the shades which is brilliant for being able to describe my favourites to you. Two of my can’t live without shades include Firestorm and Dust Storm which are shimmery yet not glittery and extremely pigmented and long lasting especially if applied with a damp eyeshadow brush. You’ll never lust over a Tom Ford palette ever again!
I think compared to other Sleek palettes, Storm is the most wearable and the shades really can be used from day through to night. It’s all well and good having pretty bright colours in a palette – but if you are not going to be able to use them everyday then to me it’s just a waste. With storm you can do day or night and even brows (Eye of the storm) and liner (blackout) so you can truly get the use out of every single colour.
This palette costs £8.99 and can be picked up from Boots. For this price you get 12 wearable pigmented shades and a huge mirror in the lid which I love. For those of you who can’t face paying £40 for a naked palette I highly recommend you try Sleek first. Try my damp eyeshadow brush trick and you will never look back… infact you will look forwards straight into the mirror astounded at your mesmerising eyeshadow colours!
