The Lowdown
I’ve seen this palette advertised for quite a few weeks now but every time I try to buy it it’s been sold out. The palette has 6 different variations of my favourite eyeshadow colour gold, in both powder and cream formulas.

In the swatch the cream shade Solitaire and Radiant are pretty light in comparison to the powder shades. The powder shades have a lot of pigment and I’m loving Princess and Asscher.

For the look I went for I used Asscher,  Trillion and Marquise. Here’s how to recreate my look:

1. First I blended Asscher onto the inner corner of my eye.
2. Asscher was followed by Trillion on the outer 3/4 of my eyelid and blended together
3. Finally I blended Marquise onto the outer third of my eyelid to give the look more depth.

I did think Asscher and Trillion are very similar despite Asscher looking darker in the palette. Each shade has quite a lot of pigment and blends beautifully. There was no fall out and they last all day without fading. I love how bright my eyes look after applying the eyeshadow. For even more intensity Sleek recommend you apply the cream eyeshadow over the top of the powder. I  haven’t tried out the cream eyeshadows yet but I do think they will make a good highlighter. It also comes with a really handy mirror and double ended brush with both a sponge and brush applicator.

A lovely little palette full of my favourite shades with colours that look fabulous on. I give it 4/5
