I gave you my review of the Sleek Vintage Romance palette last week but I didn’t have any decent pictures of eye looks using this palette. I had been using it loads when heading out over the Christmas but as per usual I was always running late so I didn’t have the time to be taking pictures all over the house in search of lighting that would show up the colours of the shadows accurately. So here is a look I did over the weekend.
Sleek Vintage Romance Palette
Kiko Long Lasting Stick Eyeshadow in Rose Brown
Kiko Glamorous Eye Pencil in Plum
Lancôme Grandiose Mascara
I started by using the Kiko Long Lasting Stick in Rose Brown all over the lid and crease as a primer. This works as a great base to hold powder eye shadows in place and it adds depth to the colour.
I also used it to line the bottom lashes.
I applied 1 (Forever in Florence) all over the lid and crease.
Then I blended 2 (Bliss in Barcelona) from the outer corner into the crease.
Next, a dab of 3 (Pretty in Paris) in the inner corner and outer brow bone for a highlight.
I lined my upper eye lids and bottom lashes with 2 (Bliss in Barcelona) and then went over the lines with the Kiko Glamorous Eye Pencil in Plum. I think using powder eye shadow either over or under a pencil liner helps keep it in place longer. I use the powder under the pencil if I want a sharp clean line and I use the powder over the pencil if I want to soften the liner for a smoky look.
Finally I lashed on Lancôme Grandiose Mascara.
I love the purple and plum shades is this palette. Have you tried any of the Sleek palettes yet?
I got this palette in my Christmas stocking but considering it’s only €10 it might be the perfect little treat to yourself as a little pick me up to beat off the January blues. Let’s face it, most of us are a bit lighter in the wallet after Christmas and with the weather being so miserable, a little treat could be just what the beauty blogger ordered.

The Sleek i-Divine Vintage Romance Palette contains 12 mineral based eye shadows. It contains a nice mix of cool and warm tones that range from neutral to purples and plums. The palette contains two matte shades, two satin shadows and the rest have a frosted finish. The range of colours contained in this palette can be used to create endless eye looks. I had a look at some of the other Sleek palettes but the colours in this one appeal to me the most; the purples, plums and gold shades bring out the green in my eyes. I think the shadows are really good quality, they are all well pigmented, easy to blend, and last well even on my oily lids. With primer they last until i wash them off. The packaging is sturdy plastic and it clasps tight so it should be safe in a handbag.
