If you are looking for high performance and good value makeup from the high street then one of the first places to start is Sleek. Here I have the Sleek Arabian Nights I-Divine Eye Shadow palette – Smoke and Shadows – for you to take a look at. There are 12 highly pigmented shades in a range of bronze and jewel tones.
I really like Sleek’s packaging. It is indeed very sleek and the Arabian Nights box is a beauty of a design. Even though it’s a £7.99 which is incredible for 12 high quality shades, the packaging doesn’t feel cheap at all. It actually has quite a professional feel to it.

Sleek Arabian Nights I-Divine Bottom Row Swatches
Wow! I love this palette! I am a sucker for golds and bronzy browns but the blues here – Simbad’s Seas and Black Magic – really blow me away. Blue is big for eyes fashion wise for AW14 so this will be a very handy palette indeed! Stallion (3rd in on the bottom) is also amazing. As is, Aladdin’s Lamp – 3rd in on the top! I cannot wait to get this on my face! The only shade I am not too keen on is is Valley Diamonds, as it is a little hard.
Sleek always give some great application tips on the box too and there are some great ideas about how to use the shades to brighten the face and widen the eyes. I’m up for following those because I need as much help as I can get when it comes to eye makeup!
Sleek Arabian Nights I-Divine Eye Shadow Palette is available from 30th July 2014 for £7.99. Bargain! Find Sleek at Boots.
