Sleek Nautical Palette ~ Swatches + Review!

Sep 7, 2015 0 comments
Heya everyone! If you have been following my blog for a while, you know that I am a HUGE fan of Sleek MakeUP Eyeshadow Palettes. I have a TON of them(I will link the reviews at the end), So when Sleek came out with a new "Nautical" Palette for summer I was all over it! I love wearing warm neutrals and cool summery blue shades on my eyes for summer and I think this palette would be perfect to take with me to Mexico in October!!
The packaging is a little different - OK not really. The only difference from the previous palettes is it includes the palette name on the front of the casing, which is super nice since I have so many it make it easier to distinguish this one from the rest!
So here is what the palette looks like! Shadows are as follows from Top to Bottom, left to right:
Starboard, Voyage, Pacific, Caesium, Amphitrite, Sovereign
Ahoy!, Barque, Adrift, Seaweed, Navy Shower, Lagoon
~Top Row~
Starboard - A nice champagne shade with shimmer finish
Voyage - A warm copper orange with a satin finish
Pacific - A medium cobalt blue with a satin finish
 Caesium - A light sky blue with a satin finish
,Amphitrite - A bright cobalt blue with shimmer finish
,Sovereign - Deep cobalt blue with a shimmer finish - seriously lacks pigment
~Bottom Row~
Ahoy! - A gorgeous shimmer taupe
Barque - A cool toned medium brown with a matte finish
 Adrift - A cool toned deep brown matte finish
Seaweed - A seafoam mermaid green with a shimmer finish - lacks pigmentation
Navy Shower - A deep peacock blue green with a satin finish - lacks pigmentation
Lagoon - A bright peacock green with a satin finish - great pigmentation
Honestly I was a little disappointing with this palette. The pigmentation is not nearly as up to par as some of my other Sleek palettes. I don't know if I just had really high expectations for it since I love colors like this but some of the blues were really disappointing. It is not a bad palette I just don't think I needed it since I like my other Sleek palettes much better. BUT I do like the shades: Starboard, Ahoy!, Barque, Adrift, and Lagoon! I will post looks using this palette next so stay tuned!
