Hey True Believers!
Some of you on my Facebook and Instagram were asking me to review this palette when I posted up a pic of it after it arrived in the mail. So here it is, the Sleek Vintage Romance Limited Edition eyeshadow palette!
This was purchased by me with my own funds.
I-Divine in Vintage Romance $9.99
Can be purchased directly from Sleek at www.sleekmakeup.com or from amazon.com sellers. Please note: Some palettes cannot be shipped to the United States and in this case, they will email you. I purchased my palette directly from Sleek with no issue even though it is noted in the ingredients tab (yeah weird!) that they won’t ship it here (they do obviously.) So I would chance it and if they end up telling you they can’t, then just purchase it from an amazon.com seller.
My shipping was $4.31 for untracked shipping that was delivered through USPS. It arrived in about one week.

My Thoughts: Sleek is a UK drug store brand that isn’t carried here in the United States. That being said, we have to order it online. This was my first Sleek Makeup purchase and I am very happy after hearing all the hype. All of the shadows but Romance in Rome and Bliss in Barcelona were incredibly pigmented, buttery in texture, and easily applied. A primer definitely helps add even more pigmentation, but as you can see, even without a primer, the color payoff is still very good. I feel Romance in Rome needed work and it was very hard to get a pigmented and even swatch from it. Bliss in Barcelona would be a nice highlighter color on the inner corner of the eyes since it has an iridescent quality to it and isn’t as pigmented.
This brand has REALLY impressed me so far and I’ll definitely be getting more from them in the future. The price for 10 incredibly gorgeous, pigmented, and blendable (in this case since 2 underperformed) eyeshadows is amazing and a great deal. I highly recommend picking up this palette since it is Limited Edition.
