The Sleek Ultra Mattes V1 Brights iDivine Shadow Palette is a twelve pan eye shadow palette full of intense neon colors.
The Sleek iDivine palettes come in a black plastic package with the Sleek logo on the lid. Each palette also has a mirror on the inside of the lid. The shadow names are not listed on the packaging, but an insert is included and it has the names of all the shadows. The twelve colors include, Chill, a pale blue, Pout, a warm pink, Sugarlite, a purple, Dragon Fly, a
Chill has a nice, buttery texture, but is a little bit sheer and it looks best when built up a little. Pout has a very similar formula to Chill, but is more pigmented. Sugarlite's formula is soft and smooth. It isn't super pigmented, but it isn't chalky and it is a pretty color. Dragon Fly feels drier than the other shades and is lacking a bit in pigmentation. Two "layers" of Dragon Fly creates a nice opaque look. Pucker is almost the same color and formula as Pout, it also has a smooth formula and nice pigmentation. Bamm! feels slightly dry, but still maintains nice pigmentation. Like a lot of the other shades, it can be built up to be very bright and intense.
Cricket is a bit dry and slightly uneven in application, but if built up it looks great. Bolt has a smooth formula and I find it to have the best pigmentation from the bunch. Strike has a nice texture and is more opaque with one swipe than most of the other shadows in the palette. Floss has a smooth formula, but like a few other shades is more on the sheer side, but it applies evenly and is not chalky. Crete isn't as soft as the other shades and feels slightly dry. It does need to be built up to be seen, as it is barely noticeable on my skin without being built up. Pow! has a buttery texture, but it is a sheer color, very similar to the matte white shadows in other iDivine palettes (like Ultra Mattes V2).
Overall, I am quite impressed by the Ultra Mattes V1 Brights Palette. It's a great alternative to more expensive bright shadows and it's a great way to experiment with these intense colors without shelling out a lot of money. As with all shadows, these shadows will look even better when applied over a primer and/or a white base.
