Review // Sleek i-Divine Storm Palette

This palette currently retails for £7.99 at Superdrug and after reading many reviews I caved in, brought it and absolutely loved it. This palette contains 12 beautiful shades ranging in formulas from mattes to shimmers, all of the colour's complement each other perfectly. The pigmentation is comparable to some of the more higher end brands, with each shadow blending effortlessly either just across the lid or into the crease. The top row features more lighter colour's while the bottom offers more of a darker touch. At first I didn't think there was much versatility with this palette however I have found myself reaching for it most days because it has the perfect shade to go with Mac's Cranberry or the perfect blue to give my smokey eye something else. Below I've included some swatches just to show you the range of colour's and beautifully they come out. Note they look even better with a good primer!
As you can see there are a range of neutral colour's with a few others just in case you wanted to try something different and step out of the browns, grey's and blacks. The lighter colour's didn't photograph as well as they looked in person which is a shame but in person they really do hold there own. The pigmentation is just not what you expect from a drugstore palette. I honestly can't rave about this palette enough and at £7.99 it is really a steal, a must in anyone's collection.
