Sleek Makeup iDivine- The Primer Palette: Swatches, Review

By  |  21 Comments

The Sleek Makeup iDivine Primer Palette offers a selection of twelve cream based colors to use essentially as a base for your eyeshadows. The colors range from sheer delicate pastels to more brighter and vivid shades.

While this palette is named “The Primer Palette”,  I like to look at it more as a base palette, but I’m sure that would confuse the general public more than anything (when I worked at MAC, women would come in saying they needed a new base, meaning foundation, and it always threw me as to what they meant at first haha). To me a primer is something that will enhance another product, as well as keeping it bright and crease-free for eyeshadow primers. These colors will definitely enhance your shadows, but I’d be weary to use them without first putting on an eyeshdow primer, such as UDPP or TFSI.

Something you may notice is a lot of these colors are on the lighter side pigmentation-wise, especially the brights. In my eyes this is okay, as they aren’t necessarily meant to be used alone, but as a booster for your powder eyeshadows, and you will definitely get awesome color payoff from your shadows if you use a base like these (just a bit, blended out into a thin layer so your shadow can go on smoothly!)

This is available for $10.50 from Sleek MakeUP.

    I’ve had this palette for so long and I absolutely hate it! It creases so much no matter what base I use underneath it. Massive thumbs down from me im afraid x

    Wouldn’t it be pertinent to mention whether these crease or not?

      Personally, I inferred that’s what she meant when she said to wear them under shadow or over a primer; that these would crease on their own. But I don’t know, I can’t speak for her.

    I have been hearing great things about Sleek lately. These colors look gorgeous! I can’t imagine all the looks you could come up with, since you’re pretty daring and all ;) Thanks for sharing!

    *Btw – I’m hosting a makeup giveaway so if you’re interested, stop on by!*

    I have this and it doesn’t crease on me, you definately have to sheer it out but the colour still looks nice and works as a base (not a primer, of course), is a bit tacky to help loose shadow or whatever to stick and can be used as a wash of colour too. I like using ‘hot wired’ as a quick wash on days where i can’t be bothered to do anything special :)

    Wow! These look great! This pallete and TooFaced JEP in milk and I’d never need another base!

    I’ve noticed in my experience that these don’t crease if you use them lightly. A little goes a long way!

    I was wondering if you could do a brush collection video thing. Just to show what kind of brushes you have and what brushes you use more often than not. Thanks. :D

      Do a search on Leesha’s YouTube page- I’m almost certain she’s done brush videos :)

    I think this could be nice to have as a base for the colors.

    i really liked the proposition, but i think the NYX jumbo pencils are more “relieable”

    I went to the Sleek website to check out the price for this and saw something called pout paints. I was wondering if anyone has tried these and if they are similar to occ’s lip tars. Thanks for any feedback. <3

      Cassie, they ARE like lip tars, only cheaper & less drying (for me anyway). The only difference is that the pout paints smell a bit orangey while the lip tars have that minty scent.

    This is totally off topic but I was wondering if you could do some looks with the BH Cosmetics 4th Edition palette. I got it about a month ago and its absolutely me FAVOURITE one of them all. The colours are to DIE for and they’re actually so amazing that I don’t want to play around with them too much for fear that I may finish them (I have to find some good dupes first!). It would be absolutely AWESOME if you could do some looks with that palette.
    Also, they’re about to come out with their 5th edition palette so it would be great if (when it came out) you could do another comparison video that contains all 5 (your first one is the reason I bought the 120 1st edition).
