As spring draws to a close I thought I would do my last spring time review/how too on the Sleek eyeshadow palette Garden of Eden. This palette was launched by Sleek as part of their spring collection and boasts a whole host of beautiful greens and earthy toned neutrals.

There are so many different and versatile looks that can be created here are two of mine; the first one is a golden, soft and glamorous look. To create this I used:

Flavourmag Sleek Palette No.2 Gold

  • Gates Of Eden a coppery golden colour on the inner half of the eye
  • I blended this with Forbidden which is a matt mauve colour with gold reflects in it
  • Just above that I used the shimmery Python the darkest of the browns, and placed it on the outer crease line to add extra depth to the eye

With this next look I wanted to use the beautiful strong green eyeshadows.

  • Firstly I took the colour Flora the deepest Matt brown shadow and blended it threw the crease line, blending it up towards the brow bone to add some depth
  • Next I took the  deep green eyeshadow Tree of Life and patted it onto most of the eyelid avoiding the inner third of the eye
  • Next I took the shimmery minty green Fauna and placed this on the inner third
  • Finally I dabbed a little of the pale lime colour Fig on the very inner corner

Review

This palette is beautiful and right up my street I love warm toned colours, which these are, and greens are quite possibly my fave’!  I think Sleek have assembled a really well thought out collection with colours that truly compliment one and other.  It also has an appealing mix of matt and shimmer shades, and I like the fact that Sleek have mixed things up by adding tiny glitter particles to the matt shadows…. Very interesting. The only thing I don’t like is the amount of fall out some of these shadows have, (I do like my shadows to be on my eyelids not my cheeks after all), but I still think it’s a worthwhile addition to my ever growing collection, and for the price of £7.99 you’re getting 12 different unusual and beautiful eyeshadows to help achieve many glamorous and mother earthly styles.

  1. […] For years I was wedded to my MAC studio fix foundation but found only a few hours later the foundation simply melted off my skin, no matter how much primer I used beforehand. When I spoke to a MAC consultant I was given a straight forward explanation that my skin is normal/dry and after much testing out of different foundations it was the MAC match master foundation ended up being the best one for me. * So after much research and thought I have decided to do a breakdown of MAC foundations for different skin types as a guide of you are looking to try something new: […]
