Sleek Ultra Matte 2 Eyeshadow Palette

When it comes to budget buy eyeshadows, Sleek are the ones to turn to. This Sleek Ultra Matt 2 Eyeshadow Palette is one of the first proper eyeshadow palettes we brought and its taken quite a while getting round to featuring it on the blog, as its one of those which we keep forgetting to talk about along with others on our long list of blog titles. This palette consists of 12 super matt eyeshadows which are up there with some of the high end brands when it comes to good pigmentation. I believe there is an Ultra matte 1 palette also which includes more brighter neon shades, however I prefer the Ultra matt 2 palette as it contains darker shades which we both get more wear out of.

When is comes to lasting power, these eyeshadows have no problem in staying put throughout the whole day. There are so many times where I've applied my eyeshadow in the morning and still had it intact all the way till late evening which is pretty impressive if you ask me. The colour range in this palette is beautiful, from deep blues and purples to soft browns and nudes, overall you get a pretty good spectrum of colours to work with - perfect to create a classic smoky eye look! And you know when it comes to a good smoky eye, its all about the blending - these shadows are very easily blendable without any of that annoying fallout.

Some of my favourite shades in the entire palette are paper bag which is a dark brown matt shade perfect for the outer corner of the eye along with flesh all over the lid as an even base to start with. Pillow talk is a great highlight shades for the inner corner and under the brow bone which I like to use on minimal makeup days as it doesn't contain any glitter. When it comes to the more deeper shades in the palette, the shade ink has to be on the favourites list along with maple which are just stunning!

As you can probably see, we've been using this palette a lot since we brought it and yes unfortunately the mirror was broken when we purchased it but putting that aside, this palette gets a definite thumbs up!
