Sleek MakeUp iDivine Ultra Mattes V2 Darks Palette

All of you matte eyeshadow lovers out there, boy you’re going to love this one. Sleek MakeUp is at again, releasing two new iDivine eyeshadow palettes, Ultra Mattes V1 Brights and V2 Darks. Both palettes consist of 12 fully pigmented matte shades, no shimmer, glitter or frost over here at all. If you love bright eyeshadows then V1 Brights is for you, but if you like to keep it a bit more muted then V2 Darks is for you. You know what I say? Just get both! Here is a look at the iDivine Ultra Mattes V2 Darks Palette.

The first thing that I noticed is that the writing on the package is very simple compared to the older palettes, I like it. The shadows are also pressed flat instead of the original waffle print, which I also like. Since the Bad Girl & Good Girl iDivine Palettes, each shadow has a name and the same goes here. The colors in the palette are beautiful, a mix of dark jewel tone shades with complimentary neutral shades.

The shadows in the Ultra Mattes V2 Darks palette are buttery smooth with great pigmentation, with the exception of Noir, Dune and Pillow Talk. Sleek usually includes a matte black shadow in almost all of the iDivines and it is usually hit or miss. I have 12 other iDivine palettes and the pigmentation and application of the black shadow is not consistent between them. Noir has to be layered to achieve the pigmentation shown above. If not, it does not appear as dark and looks uneven. Both Dune and Pillow Talk are slightly chalky and sheer, and must also be layered. Other than that I had no problem with the shadows in this palette.

For maximum wear and pigmentation I suggest using a primer prior to application. To make the shades pop more you can also use a cream eyeshadow base in a nude or similar shade. Also, I find it best to pat the shadows on instead of sweeping when applying for minimum fall out. There are some gorgeous shades for Fall in this palette but it can be used all year long with many different looks.

The Sleek Makeup iDivine Ultra Mattes in V1 Brights and V2 Darks launches on May 9th in Superdrug stores nationwide and online at www.sleekmakeup.com $10 each

*Update 5/9: As of right now, due to FDA Regulations the Ultra Mattes palettes are not available for sale to the US due to one of the ingredients. I will update this post if/when this changes.

The product(s) in this post was provided for review. See my Disclosure page for additional information.

  1. Both palettes look nice. The only things I have from sleek are blush, pout polish and contour palette. I’ve wanted to try their e/s but I can’t with their shipping

    1. You have to try a few of their eyeshadow palettes, i think you’ll love them. I understand what you mean about the shipping though. I say order with a friend and split the cost of shipping to make it cheaper.

  2. Oooh, I got this today in Superdrug after raiding the drawer under the Sleek stand. Figured it would be there as it launches next week.

  3. FYI, Can you believe Sleek won’t sell these palettes in the US? I just tried ordering from their site, and it says they won’t sell to US customers. Le sigh. I was so looking forward to this after your swatches – off now to make a UK friend! 😉

    1. Lol I hear you. It’s not because they don’t want to, its because they can’t due to FDA regulations. Hopefully they get it sorted out soon.
