I wanted to feature Sleek divine Bad Girl palette today. I know that this was released awhile ago and there have been many reviews. It is a limited edition palette and I was so lucky to have been able to receive this as a gift from the beautiful and wonderful Vicky of Vanity-Fashionista. We had been chatting on Twitter and I mentioned how I would love to try a Sleek palette and that Bad Girl really appealed to me. The package arrived on Thursday and I was so happy.
There was a bit of a mishap that happened during transportation to me where 3 of the pans in the palette got damaged.
It's all good though because it was still intact and very usable.
Products used for both EOTD:
Mezaik Double Eyelid Stretch Fiber
Urban Decay Primer Potion in Eden
Sleek divine Bad Girl Palette
K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner
I used the beige-ish color (2nd color on top row) over entire eyelid, from lash line to brow bone. The 2nd blue color (4th color on bottom row) from lash line to crease line. The white color (1st color, top row) was applied over the blue to tone the color down. Gun Metal (4th color top row) was used from mid eye to outer eye, blending upward into crease. The black/charcoal color (last color, top row) applied to outer 1/4 of eyelid. lined the upper lash line and also in outer "V" of upper eyelid. It is also used on lower lash line, the outer 1/8. Entire upper lash line and 1/8 of lower lash line is lined with K-Palette eyeliner.
I had read many reviews on how soft the shadows are and that they are pigmented. I was totally unprepared for how pigmented they are. When I applied the blue color, I barely tapped my brush onto the color and when I applied it, it was just a burst of color! Definitely way too dark, which is why I tried to tone it down with the white color. I'm thinking that perhaps a less dense brush will work better. The shadows are definitely soft, perhaps too much in that color is picked up very easily and the potential for fall outs is very high.
It was also to my dismay that the 3 colors that were damaged, ended up being way more damaged than first thought, perhaps because the shadows are so nice and soft. When I used 2 of the 3 colors, they disintegrated and crumbled into a powdery mess. I decided it was not a problem because I could repress it. I proceeded to put the white shadow into a little cup and some of the gun metal got into it. I cleaned it up as best as I could but it was quite minimal so I don't think it will affect it much. When I was getting ready to put the gun metal color into a cup, I jostled the palette accidently and the other dark silver color next to it (it was the other one that was damaged) crumbled while some of the gun metal fell out of the palette and most of the rest of it ended up in the other pan with the dark silver color. While I was cursing my clumsiness, I decided to just put both of the colors into the cup and mixed it together. Following the procedure for pressing pigments, I proceeded to work on the white color and the mixed gun metal/dark silver color. I filled the original white color pan with the white mixture and filled both of the other two pans with my new duo color mixture.
The new mixture is a nice medium silver color now. I am happy that I was able to salvage it with the bonus of having had to make my own custom color.
For this EOTD, I again used the beige-ish color over the entire eyelid. My new custom color was applied from inner corner to mid eye from lash line to crease line. The deep hunter green color (1st color, bottom row) was dabbed in the middle of eyelid, from lash line to crease line and blended upward and outward. The back/charcoal color (last color, top row) was applied to outer 1/4 of eyelid and in outer "V". It was also used on the outer 1/8 of lower lash line. I lined my eyes with K-Palette Real Lasting Eyeliner--the entire upper lash line and outer 1/8 of lower lash line.
I managed to not pick up as much color for this EOTD so it's a much more muted look that EOTD 1. It is good for a day time look.
I hope that you enjoyed my unexpected adventures in playing with this new Sleek palette, my very first one! I would definitely be interested in trying out some others. Thank you, Vicky, for this wonderful gift! You are truly a sweet person and I'm so glad to have become friends with you.
