The upcoming Limited Edition Arabian Nights Smoke & Shadows i-Divine Palette from Sleek MakeUp embraces the mysterious flair of the far east. Inspired by Arabian fantasy, seduction and warm rich colors the palette is perfect for Summer nights or any night for that matter. It features deep tones of gold, green, blue and purple that all compliment each other perfectly to create beautiful smoky eyes for all skin tones. The palette comes with a Smoky Eye Guide to help you to create the perfect smokey eye look.
All of the shades are extremely pigmented and most apply smooth with the exception of a few that are a little dry like Gold Souk, Stallion and Sorcerer. The drier shades has more fallout than the rest.
Scheherazade’s Tale, Gold Souk, Aladdin’s Lamp, Sultan’s Garden, Hocus Pocus, Simbad’s Seas
Genie, Black Magic, Stallion, Sorcerer, Valley of Diamonds, 1001 Nights
There’s enough variety in the shade options to allow you to create looks from a smokey eye for work to a deep and bold look for a night out. I found the shadows apply smoothly for the most part and are very easy to blend. The look that I created was inspired by the look that came with the press material. It’s a little bold for daytime but I toned it down by keeping the cheeks and lips soft.

For night time I can easily make the look a bit more bold by adding definition to the cheeks and a bold lip. This was my first time trying the Sleek MakeUp Ink Pots and Dominatrix was great for this look. It’s an extremely pigmented rich black that applies smooth and creamy and is budge proof once it dries…
This eyeliner will be in my daily rotation as I love a bold black eye liner. Moving on, the Sleek MakeUp Arabian Nights Smoke & Shadows i-Divine palette is a nice addition to the current line up. The shadows are super rich in pigmentation, long wearing and just gorgeous in general. I can’t wait to create a look with Simbad’s Seas, I just may have to do a tutorial for that one 😉
