I recently received my first ever Sleek Makeup product, which was the Sunset Eyeshadow Palette. It contains 12 beautiful warm shades and one bright pop of blue to represent the sun, sea and sand (apparently).
To be honest, I bought this palette mainly for the deep burgundy/red shade and it is my favorite out of the lot.
All the shadows except for the black have a shimmery finish and some of the lighter colors do get a bit of fallout. Below are the swatches in correspondence to the order in the palette.
Just about all the shades are very pigmented but I found that the darker ones on the left half of the palette pack more punch.
Here's one look I came up with using the Sunset Palette. I highlighted the exact shades I used in the palette below.
I found these shadows applied easily and wore well throughout the day with a primer. However, with the lighter shades (especially the bottom right 3), I experienced some fall out. Also, blending to smooth out the edges removed a ton of the lighter shadows packed on the lid so I had to reapply after blending.
The packaging is clean and compact with a large mirror and plastic casing that doesn't feel too cheap but at the same time, lets you know its no Urban Decay. I'd say for the price, its pretty great. Speaking of price, I purchased mine on Amazon for $12.99. Here's the link.
Overall, I really like this palette! The color selection is right up my alley because I almost exclusively wear warm/hot colors with my skin tone. I wish there was at least one matte neutral color for blending and I do find the left half of the palette with the deeper shades is a bit more pigmented but its a great overall collection nonetheless.
I give the Sleek Sunset Palette 4 out of 5!
Thanks for reading!
