Beauty Review • Sleek Goodnight Sweetheart (Limited Edition) swatches + first impression

7.9.16 Suesue


Lately I have been really into the vintage pink, rose gold, dusty wine red and cranberry kind of eyeshadow shades. While I am a cool  toned colour type of girl, I find that those shades really suit me. Hence, my hunt for the specific eyeshadow has started. Having looked at different brands, I was still quite hesitant to commit to one. Until I saw the Sleek's Facebook post come by with their new release.... i-Divine Goodnight Sweetheart in limited edition. Because of the brand, price and availability I already knew I need to get this. This was still unavailable in my local Boots, so I grabbed one online instead.

This palette is inspired by romantic evenings, cosy warm candlelight dinners and seductive fire nights including: smouldering dusky rose, deep plump and iridescent shimmers as core colours.

Sleek is one of the famous drugstore brand in the UK that is known for their price/value products.   Their products are affordable (€12.99) and the quality is amazing for that value. This palette contains 12 x 0.8grams of eyeshadows, a big mirror (as always) and a 2 sided sponge applicator. 

I will show you the product, swatches and my first impression of the Goodnight Sweetheart eye shadow palette of Sleek. 


THE SWATCHES

Seduction: light shimmery taupe with hint of silver glitters

Snuggle: duo chrome warm dark brown with metallic green sheen 
Sleeping Beauty: cool toned taupe/grey with a bit of shimmer 

FIRST IMPRESSION. First of all, the quality is good. Very smooth, buttery and pigmented, like I expected from Sleek. Romance was the only one that had minimal crumbs during the swatches.   Secondly, there are several positive points I would like to express. I love the pinky/rose/coppery shades, which are also the shades that I was looking for. Surprisingly there are two duo chrome shades in this palette and especially Lingerie was like "wow" when I swatched. Just a picture doesn't show the true colour unfortunately. In the light it is so beautiful. 

While I haven't used it yet on my eyes, I do have a few things I wish were different. Firstly, it packaging says these are warm shades, but in my opinion it is a mix of cool toned and warm colours,  such as the taupe and dusky colours which I like. Also, the darker taupe/brown colours did not really amaze me; I find that many of the colours are fairly similar. They could have put a cranberry shade, a black shade,  a highlighter and another matte for example for the versatility (but that would be my personal perfect palette). Also, I find it a bit unfortunate that there are only 2 matte shades; I would have liked one more for the diversity of transition colours. 

It is not my 100% perfect eyeshadow palette because of the few similar colours, but then again it is my personal opinion and preference.  Besides my personal improvement points, overall I am super impressed with the quality, colours and especially the value. For only €12.99, you can't pass on this beautiful limited edition! The dusky rose, gold, coppery colours  and the duo chrome Lingerie (!!) are just like.. ahhhh! Can't wait to start using it!
