Sleek MakeUP iDivine – Glory

Yay – another new Sleek MakeUP iDivine! I do love these palettes. This patriotic offering is called Glory*, just in time for the spotlight shining on our country and capital this summer.

The shades are all named after lines on the London Underground which is pretty cool – I wish they’d done a Metropolitan line shade, I love maroon colours! There’s a really good mix of neutrals and brights in the Glory palette, making it super versatile.

Top row L-R: Tube, Overground, Bakerloo, Jubilee, Platform, Northern

Bottom row L-R: District, Hammersmith & City, Picadilly, Circle, Victoria, Central

With one exception, the formula and pigmentation cross all the shades is excellent as usual. I would hasten to say that Tube and Overground are a little bit too similar, and one of them could have been sacrificed for a Metropolitan line shade – yes, I’m still going on about that! The one exception is Platform, a matte grey which for me had next to no pigmentation, and it felt dry and chalky. Still, one dud colour is a small price to pay for a pretty cool patriotic palette – and besides, the iDivines to me are as much collector’s items as eyeshadows so I’m glad to add this to my collection.

The brand have definitely been sneaking their prices up slowly but surely over the last few years, I remember the first one I got (Jewels, back in 2009) cost me £4.87. Now though, the Sleek MakeUP Glory iDivine palette will cost you £7.99, exclusively to Superdrug and online. I don’t think £7.99 is an unreasonable price at all though, for what you get!

The 2012 collection – that’s the Glory palette, and a corresponding blush and Pout Polish – is out now for a limited time only. If you’re an avid Sleek collector, don’t delay getting yours!

  1. i love the idea behind this and the names and if i could afford to would buy it purely for those reasons. and i must say i agree a metropolitan line colour would have been nice! But unfortunately i think id only ever use the top row except for fancy dress :( (i dont really do bright colours) x

  2. i finally managed to swatch the red (the colour i wanted to buy this palette for) and i am disappointed. the colour surely packs a punch, so soft, yet not too soft, and soooooooooooo pigmented but it seems a little bit too coral/neon red to me and i wanted a normal red. in fact, i am absolutely desperate for a palette with primary colours, matte, pigmented, with a normal yellow, a normal blue, a normal red and hey, call it primary or rainbow. i really dont want to have to buy ben nye to get it.

    whilst the bottom row is amazingly pigmented for the bright lovers, ‘going for gold’ palette from mua blows that one out of the water, by a mile x
