Sleek Makeup Showstoppers Palette Review

Hey my beauties how are you all today :) 
Wow the summer holidays is already setting in for the kiddies as i type here I heard load TV on, Nintendo ds's been played and music on the phone as my 3 year old shimmy shakes to the music all oh yes and the other twin shouting (not singing) to the song been played all because the rain is about to fall here :( so much for summer eh?  but I still aim to get this blog post up :) 
So todays review is on the Newest Eyeshadow Palette by Sleek which is Limited Edition.  This palette was first released in April and i just could not wait to get my hands on it because Sleek took the most popular shades from past palettes and put them into one which is the Showstoppers Palette :) 
If you have been following me for a while you will know I absolutely love love love the Sleek I-Divine eyeshadow palettes they are amazingly pigmented and amazing value :) 
I think I have about 7 or 8 palettes to my collection now and i love each and every one of them.  If you have missed any of my reviews on them click here to view all my reviews 
The packaging is the same as it always is a sturdy black case which will not open unless you prize it open which is a great thing.  You get a great sized mirror inside and a double ended sponge tipped applicator which I always dispose of as I have my brushes that I prefer to use.  The eyeshadows are protected by a plastic covering which has the name of each eyeshadow on it :) 
The names on the shadows as you might notice if you are a fan of the palettes are actually the names of what palette the eyeshadow came from for instance The 1st shade came from the Paraguaya palette so thats what its named on this palette :) great idea :) 
Some of the shades I have not tried because I dont have all of the named palettes so I was even more excited to try them because they are the popular shades :) 
So on to the shades and starting with the top row from left to right :)
Paraguaya:  This is a Matte peachy shade perfect for blending out harsh lines or even on the line for an instant wake me up look :) This is light and looks sheer when swatched but more noticable on the lid when you use a darker shade in the crease :) 
Sunset:  This is an absolute stunning shade I Love it :)  Its a stunning metallic Burgandy and works amazing for my eyes as they make my hazel eyes pop :)  Its very very pigmented and alot goes a long way :) 
Me, Myself & Eye:  This is another metallic shade A white with reflect of green in it a perfect highlight shade.  There can be a little fall out with this one but again a little goes a long way 
Bad Girl:  Another metallic shade this time a stunning olive green with reflects of gold and again very pigmented and a little on the chalky side :) 
Noir:  A gunmetal silver with reflect of blue going through it you perfect smokey eye shade and very very pigmented works well and blends with little effort :) 
Ultramattes V2:  This is a matte black with a slight metallic finish.  This takes a little more effort to blend than the rest of the shade because its so dark but takes very little with each application.  This also works great as a liner wet or dry :) 
Now for Row 2
Oh So Special:  This is another matte shade for you all this time a deep grey shade.  This is a little harder to blend so take your time with it but its very pigmented and beautiful :)
Bohemia:  Wow years ago I would have been afraid of this shade lol but this is the most beautiful pinky coral shade again a matte shade.  This is so so pigmented that a little goes a long way.  If feels soft and creamy and looks fantastic on anyone with green/hazel eyes.  I will post up a picture on a model I used this colour on later on :)
Storm:  A very deep matte navy blue shade.  This looks fantastic along side "Bohemia" A Very pigment shade but is a little chalky so best to apply before your foundation :)
Sparkle:  A creamy shimmery shade but has a slight metallic finish.  This is chalky also so be careful this shade is very soft and pigmented for a light shade and works perfect for a highlight :)
Au Natural:  A very deep purple with pinkish undertones and silver glitter this shade is BEAUTIFUL but does create alot of fall out be careful.  This is very pigment a stunning I love it you will find it is a little on the grainy side because of the glitter but you will not end up looking like a disco ball dont worry :)
Graphite:  This is a beautiful chocolate brown which has a metallic finish .  I wore this shade yesterday in the crease and "Paraguaya" on the lid and it looked so beautiful for a little pick me up look :) even for school days look :) This is a very pigmented soft shade a little goes a long way :)
As you can see each and every one of these shades are more than pigmented enough even the matte shades are pigmented which is a surprise because matte shades in general are usually hard to work with.  I love every shade and I think Sleek did well with adding all the favourite shades into one palette.  One thing I would say is that there is a good few shades in this palette that creates fall out and can be a little messy so what i do is create my more dramatic looks before applying my foundation at least that way you can clear up any fall out after you are done either that or apply loose powder under each eye and cheeks so you can sweep it away after.  I highly recommend this palette and I can safely say that its one of the best I have bought :)  Its a pity its a Limited Edition because I think it could become a favourite to anyone loves makeup :) 
Here is a look I done on Sarah my perfect model :) :) ;)  In this eye look I used the shades "Paraguaya all over the lid, Bohemia in the centre of the lid, Au Natural in the inner and outter corner, Storm in the crease and Sparkle as a highlight on the browbone and tear duct" The look I did was actually inspired by another beauty blogger who created this look and I thought I would never be able to achieve it but did :) Her blog is called Glam Express she does some amazing looks and tutorials :) 
Here is the look I recreated :) 
you can still purchase this palette from the Sleek website or selected stores like Superdrug and boots :) for £7.99 or you can purchase this palette from the Cloud10 website who ship internationally :) (at the moment they are out of stock due to popular demand but I have contacted them and they said they are due a delivery in today)  for €9.99

Until next time 
Lots of Love Luck and Laughter
