I love to read Paula’s blog as she always give a frank, honest review of products and includes lots of images.
A huge thanks to Paula 🙂
I gave the Au Naturel i-Divine eye shadow palette and the pout polish a go over the weekend and was delighted with both.
The eyeshadow palette consists of 12 colours and a double ended sponge applicator – I’m not a fan of those applicators so usually throw them away as soon as I’ve opened a palette! The majority of the shades, 8 out of 12 are matt while the remaining 4 are shimmer. The shadows are powdery in their formula however, I did not find fallout a problem and the pigmentation is pretty good too. What I really like about this palette is that the softer colours are very suitable for day wear but this look can then easily be transformed into a smokey eye by adding another darker shade from the second row of the palette.
|Top Row L-R: Nougat, Nubuck, Cappucino, Honeycomb, Toast, Taupe
Bottom Row L-R: Conker, Moss, Bark, Mineral Earth, Regal, Noir
|As you can see, some of the shades are quite soft and sheer|
Some have compared this palette to Urban Decay’s Naked palette and yes, most certainly there are similarities but Sleek Au Naturel i-Divine contains more soft, subtle matt shades and at a fraction of the price (€9.00), Sleek Au Naturel i-Divine is certainly a welcome addition to any makeup bag!
The other two items that make up this permanent collection are the Suede blush and Bare Minimum pout polish. I’ve yet to try out the blush but love the pout polish – it is quite sheer so gives a nice shine to bare lips and can also be used over lipstick as a gloss.
The Au Naturel i-Divine palette is currently sold out on Cloud10Beauty but should be back in stock by the end of the week, the pout polish and blusher are both in stock however.

I usually like to set all cream blushes to help them last longer, so I set this with a MAC Mineralize Skinfinish (Semi Precious – Rose Quartz)
