Sleek Makeup 'Garden of Eden' i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette | Review

Hey girlie's!!!

You may have seen in my latest makeup and beauty haul  that I finally managed to pick up the gorgeous Garden of Eden palette by Sleek Makeup. I've had the palette on my wish list since it's January release so you can imagine I was super happy to finally have it in my life and my goodness it doesn't disappoint.


The packaging for the Garden of Eden Palette is the same as the standard Sleek Eyeshadow Palettes with its usual matte black casing and large mirror inside. As for the outta packaging... I managed to nab the palette's Limited Edition snake skin designed box, as the packaging is limited edition they will only be available whilst stocks last but don't worry the Garden of Edan palette is a permanent fixture in the i-Divine eyeshadow palette line.

The Garden of Eden palette contains 12 gorgeous shades that are all nature inspired, I just love the combination of the earthy browns, dusky purples and the organic greens, it's such a lovely take on a neutrals palette and will certainly suit all complexions and eye colours, however I do think this palette would make brown and green eyes pop in particular. As with most Sleek palettes the quality of each eye shadow is amazing, with most feeling buttery soft and are so easy to work with.


As I said before the Garden of Eden palette holds 12 eye shadows, all of which are a mixture of frosts, metallic's and complimentary matte shades, below I have listed the shade run down for you...

Gates 0f Eden - A warm toned golden shade which has some copper tones to it, this eye shadow has a lovely soft, frost texture and amazing pigmentation.
Eve's Kiss - A pinky lilac shade that has a metallic almost foil finish. 
Paradise On Earth - A deep brown-taupe shade with dusky purple tones that has a metallic finish.
Python - A rich chocolate brown shade that has a metallic finish, great pigment and amazing colour pay off.
Forbidden - A matte blend of grey, taupe and purple tones with micro glitters that can fall out slightly upon application. 
Flora - A dark matte brown, perfect for getting all smokey he he, even though it has a matte finish it has beautiful levels of pigmentation.
Entwined -  A dark taupe shade with a matte base that has a sprinkling of golden micro  glitter, this shade can be a little chalky and has a dry texture so it quite hard to swatch.
Adam's Apple -  A light matte green that reminds me of a golden delicious apple ha ha, its a slightly chalky eyeshadow and doesn't scream pigment either.
Fig - A metallic olive green shade that's super soft and packed with pigment.
Evergreen - A bright green metallic shade, again with super pigmentation.
Fauna - A frost forest green shade, great pigmentation.
Tree Of Life - A deep matte forest green shade, despite being matte it has an intensive amount of colour pay off.
 Like with all Sleek palettes, I found all of the eye shadows in the Garden of Eden palette lasted really well on my oily eyelids and stayed in place all day, the only time I did experience any fall out was when applying the more glittery shades within the palette, I found a small amount of glitter did fall onto my under eye area but it was nothing major and easily fixed with a foundation brush. All of the shadows pick up on the brush well and blend out beautifully, making it a great palette for beginners. I found the only shades that didn't have intense pigment are Entwined and Adams Apple, don't get me wrong they are still lovely shades and blends out nicely but they do need some layering to create a good amount of colour payoff. 

Overall I love this palette and Sleek have triumphed yet again in my eyes, as you can see from all the beautiful shades this palette contains, it can provide you with a multitude of looks from day to night, from subtle to more dramatic, from spring through to autumn, I think its a fabulous little palette that most would enjoy. 

The Sleek Garden of Eden Eyeshadow Palette retails for £7.99 which I think is an absolute bargain, that works out around just 66p per eyeshadow!!! You can buy your very own Garden of Eden palette online at www.sleekmakeup.com and www.superdrug.com and it's also available in selected Superdrug stores.

Have you tried the Garden of Eden palette yet beaut's? What did you think? I'd love to know.
