This is the first time that I bought a Sleek MakeUp product. I have seen some cute articles at Sephora a couple of times, but for some reason I have never bought anything (surprising, huh?) ! That was until I saw this gorgeous palette: i-Lust Diamonds In The Rough.
I have instantly been seduced by the sparkle of this palette. I am usually more of a matte eye shadow person, but when I saw those rose gold / champagne shades, I couldn’t resist !
This palette is pretty small, which makes it convenient to carry anywhere and the design is absolutely beautiful.
I love the geometric pattern on the box, reminding us the name of the palette, Diamonds In The Rough. The color of this box is definitely a teaser of the palette’s shades, which is pretty smart according to me ! The holographic letters were a brilliant idea too, good job Sleek MakeUp !
Those holographic letters and geometric patterns are also present on the palette itself, which looks great with the matte black packaging. I wouldn’t change a thing !
Inside the palette, you will find a mirror and a double embed brush. Once again, this is something I really like. A palette without a mirror is like a bike without the wheels to be, and adding a brush to a palette always gives it a fancier look.
I-Lust Diamonds In The Rough contains six shades, all of them with a pink/champagne metallic tone. Two of them are creamy, the four others are powders.
From left to right: Solitaire, Trillion, Princess, Asscher, Marquise, Radiant.
SOLITAIRE is the first creamy shade of the palette, and also the brighter. It is a pearly white with an amazing intensity. I will probably use that one as a highlighter too, its intensity is amazing !
TRILLION is a pearly gold that can fit in so many looks. Its texture is a bit dry according to me, but the pigmentation is definitely there so I don’t hold it against this Trillion shade !
PRINCESS is a gorgeous rose gold shade. If you like rose gold as much as I do, you’re gonna love it! As for Trillion (and the other powder shades of the palette), the texture is a bit dry, but it doesn’t take anything away from the pigmentation.
ASSCHER is a champagne gold that you will probably see a million times on my blog from now on. I absolutely love it. It is a discret shade that can be used for an every day look so easily.
MARQUISE is definitely my favorite shade in this palette ! The pigmentation is truly amazing, and look at is copper color, it looks gorgeous ! Marquise is the shade that made me buy this palette, you can understand why when you look at the swatches.
RADIANT is the other creamy shade of the palette. I would describe it as a champagne color with cold undertones. The creamy texture makes it so pleasant to use !
The six shades are long lasting, pigmented and not powdery at all when applied on the skin.
I have to admit, I didn’t know what to expect when I bought this palette since it was the first time that I bought a Sleek MakeUp product. The low price (10,49€) made me think that this palette may not be a quality one, but I was wrong ! I’ll never judge a product by its price anymore, that’s for sure ! The quality is amazing, and if that was my first Sleek MakeUp purchase, it was certainly not my last.
I really recommend this palette for any sparkly shades lover, you won’t be disappointed !
