I can't believe another weekend has passed us by already! This year is simply flying along. Quick post today with some swatches of the new Sleek Makeup Snapshots i Divine eyeshadow palette.
It's a new, limited edition palette available for purchase through the Seek Makeup website. It retails for $10 USD and they ship internationally for quite an affordable fee (it depends on what you purchase but I bought two palettes and got charged about $4 USD for shipping). It contains 12 mineral based, highly pigmented pressed shadows (each with approximately 1.1 g of product), in a combination of matte and shimmery formulas.

I've swatched the shades, these were all taken in daylight without primer, so they'll be more vibrant if you use them over primer.
|L-R: Summer Breeze, Martini, Kiwi Flower, Lotus Flower,|
Hummingbird and Tequila Sunrise.
|L-R: Sand Walker (disappeared on me), Washed Ashore, Sunset,|
Green Iguana, Purple Haze and Magenta Madness.
I have swatched them and also created several looks with them, and have been very pleased with the texture. They are smooth, buttery and blend like a dream. Some of the mattes are slightly chalky, with a little bit of fall out noticeable, but nothing that can't be swept away with a fluffy brush after you're done with your eye makeup. One of the shades, Sand Walker, tends to disappear on my skin, as you might see from the photo above.
A fun and bright palette packaged in a handy, hardy and...well, sleek, casing.
It's quite hard so it should provides quite a bit of protection.
Travel-friendly and comes with a mirror for easy touch-ups.
Quite affordable at $10 USD for 12 mineral shadows.
Very versatile as it has some matte nudes as well as brights.
Perfect for summer.
If you aren't into brights, then this really isn't the palette for you.
Some of the shades are a little chalky/powdery, but not too hard to work with.
The palette can be a bit hard to open.
Depending on your skintone, one or two shades might disappear on you.
Now, in my previous post, I did a look using these palette and asked if any of you wanted me to do use any colours in particular; most of you wanted to see the orange based shadows (Tequila Sunrise, Washed Ashore and Sunset) with a couple of votes towards Magenta Madness and Purple Haze, so I have put together a special post on that, which I'll share tomorrow (it's going to be a little picture heavy so I wanted to keep it separate).
Please check back tomorrow so you can see what I've done.
