So, this is the recap post of all the Sleek iDivine eyeshadow palettes I've swatched so far - Original, Acid, Sunset, and Storm. EDITED TO ADD: I've included swatches of the more recent Sleek palettes that have been swatched as well, to keep this list complete :)

For some reason, it seems that for Sleek eyeshadows in general, the shimmers are of better quality than the mattes. Thus palettes with more shimmer shadows in them tend to be better than palettes with mostly mattes, so this would mean the Sunset and Original palettes, for example, are of better quality than the Acid palette, because they have more shimmer colours in them.

In terms of color coordination, I don't have very much to say about the palettes - after all, colour is a very personal thing. But I might like to point out that the two blues in the Sunset palette swatched very similarly on me. To be sure they arent 100% the same, but they just look rather similar on me. Maybe it's my colouring or something :X For someone who is looking for a work appropriate palette, the Storm palette would probably be your best bet, since it has a good mix of various neutral colours.

My favourite palette is probably the Original palette, although I prefer the colours in the Storm palette. However, the Storm palette has a couple of mattes which I feel bring down the overall quality of the palette a little. Also, between the Circus Palette and the Acid palette, I prefer the Circus Palette. Comparing the two, I just feel like the colour coordination and eyeshadow texture is better in the Circus palette.

I've still got more UK drugstore swatches, including more Sleek, Barry M, and GOSH, and I hope to put those up soon :)
