Sleek PPQ Shangri-La Collection Review & swatches.


An aim for my blog is to try and keep the post varied, the majority of what i post will be my work done in lessons but i will try an include some product reviews of new make up i buy or already own.A company you will probably see a lot of on my blog is Sleek, i absolutely love their products and own a lot of the i-Divine palettes.
I purchased these two palettes while a go now, its one of sleeks more recent collections... I wasn't incredibly carried away with the matte lip glosses which were part of this collection so i just stuck with the eyeshadow palettes.

 
What Sleek Say..It’s the ultimate collaboration of beauty and fashion: Sleek MakeUP has teamed up with fashion house PPQ to create a limited edition collection based on a mutual love of colour, texture and vibrancy! The result is the Shangri-La collection.
Inspired by classic Motown sound, the collection has a retro vibe channelling glamorous 60’s style! Featuring two i-divines in Supreme and Respect, and two Truly Mattely Deeply Lip glosses in Soul and Jazz.
Lovely packaging for both palettes but the one thing that slightly confuses me is how the respect palette packaging gives off the impression it will be pastel type colours and it is not so that left me a tad disappointed.
 

 
From L-R: Blue Suede, R&B, Bronx Black, P-Funk, Grand Master Flash, Wah Wah White
La Belle Blue, Smokey Robinson, Al Green, Delfonic, Commodores Cream, Shangrilas Lemon.
 
Must say i rather love the shadow names in this palette but overall i cant say im really overly excited by it....the quality of the shadows are good with the exception of Smokey Robinson and Shangrilas Lemon not really showing up too strong when swatched on the back on my hand, there are some interesting colours in this so i will most definitely have to have a play around and see what looks i can create.

 
 
From L-R: Gladys White, James Brown, Shalamar, Count Basi Beige, Aretha Orange, Otis Red
Roberta Black, Vandellas, Cameo Cream, Motown Mink, O'jays, New Jack Pink.
 
Once again i love the names in this palette, its nice when a company makes the effort to add little extra touches like that. This palette i am really on the fence about as some of the shadows are beautiful and others i just kinda dont see the point of, the worst one for me being Motown Mink i just could not get any colour from this for the swatch...i even resorted to using the sponge tip applicator and still no luck ...Also not a huge fan of Gladys White or Count Basi Beige but others like James Brown, Vandellas and O'jays completely make up for that!! 

I bought both palettes from my local Superdrug but the whole collection and more can be found online at the sleek website http://www.sleekmakeup.com/
