Sleek Saturday Series Episode 2 – Collaboration with Robyn

What's the point of owning a beautiful eyeshadow palette if you're not going to use it? None. I've got quite a few like these and I thought it was high time for me to start rediscovering some of my hidden treasures. Also Joining me this week for a Surprise Sleek Saturday Series episode is the absolute gorgeous Robyn from Stay Beautiful. I can't wait to see her look!


This week, I have been playing with a ‘very old’ Limited Edition Sleek Makeup Palette. I don’t think I had heard of Sleek Makeup when this palette was originally released. When I started to get interested in Sleek Makeup, I went to catch up on all the I-Divine palettes ever released and Safari was the first one which caught my attention and which I wanted to purchase at some point. Here it is, in its full glory.

Before playing with this palette for the purpose of this Saturday Sleek Series, I actually never touched it. I can honestly say that this is the prettiest colour assortment of all the Sleek Palettes. All the colours together are so harmonious. My only regret is that there are only 2 matte colours in the palette (the mint green and the black) and that the rest, however pretty they are are very high on the shimmer front. Shimmer is nice but it does limit the eye makeup looks I can on my eye shape. I can’t really get away with shimmery colours in the crease of my eye or past the crease. I don’t think it suits me.


And now my look. I used 5 colours from the palette to achieve my eye makeup: one gold, the  lime/khaki, the mint green, the black, and last but not least, the very pale brown.

I am glad I have ‘rediscovered’ this palette and it gave me lots of fun playing with it. I cannot help but feeling a little sad that I cant make the most of these very harmonious colours and make the most of them in more colour combinations. 


Do you remember the very first Sleek Makeup Palette you have ever bought? 
Missed any? Rowena from Cosmetic Candy has been collecting
them all, and swatching them, obviously :)

your look is super super pretty and summery, I'm loving it! Too bad about the palette having too many shimmers - I feel weird too about using too many shimmers, I don't know how to explain that - I often feel "overdone", or OTT when I have too much shimmer on. :(

Ooh Liloo this is lovely! I wish I was better at eye makeup, I just look like a man dressed as a woman when I try anything like this :(

Gaaawjus! I used to have this, but never used it so I sold it...The first I had was the 'Original' one - back when it was only that and 'Chaos' which had been released!

Are you crazy? What's with "shimmers don't suit me"? You are so wrong, lady! Beautiful.

I love that palette, and the bohemian one, i'm jealous of your gorgeous eyes and those colours really make your iris' look bright.

Very pretty as usual xx

Robyn said...

So cute, I love green and gold! I missed this palette... I think my first one was Sunset! Gorgeous look hon :)

Daisy said...

Would you like to live with me and do my make up everyday ?! I will make you cupcakes in return :)

Safari is the only one I don't have. Just like you, I was late to the game and when I went to try and collect them all, I couldn't find them all :( I have all the others though :)

BeautyBangs said...

Lovely look! I definitely feel the same about shimmers, don't like wearing too many at once. The "Original" palette was the first one that I bought and it gets lots of use! Steph x

Moxie said...

I agree with you about owning eyeshadow palettes--gotta use them. But, there is something nice about just looking at them without them being "messed up." :) I love how creative you are--super photos and great swatches, as well. xx

Love this look! The pop of matte green on the outer edges is so nice!

Emma Greenwood said...

I LOVE your eyes in this! They look amazing, so much so that I'm tempted to buy the sleep palette and copy the look xx

GORGEOUS. I especially love that yellow inner corner and the greeny gold on the centre of the lid.
