Hi, girls! In today's Monday Palette Review I have for you Sleek Ultra Mattes V2 Darks palette. I got it back in December, when it was on sale in online store Zapikonai. I think I payed around 8 € back then, but otherwise in Slovenia you can get them for around 12 €.
The palette is in their usual black packaging. It has 12 eyeshadows and they are all matt. Most of the eyeshadows are dark, except for 3, which are brigth. I think this palette is more suitable for those, who like dark and bold make up looks, although you can make natural or brighter look too, if you use Flesh, Pillow Talk, Dune and maybe Paper Bag in crease. One eyeshadow has 1,1 g. Most of them are pretty soft on touch (I also have Chaos, another Sleek palette with matt eyeshadows, which are more hard on touch). They do dust like crazy, but if you shake the eyeshadow from the brush, there's minimal fall out. They do blend very nicely and last long on my normal lids. Although I have a feeling, they don't get well with my Catrice eyeshadow base, that I'm currently using. I think, that they fade out faster as they were, when I was still using Essence I Love Stage base.

Orbit - is a teal shade with amazing pigmentation.
Ink - is a navy blue shade. This one is a bit less softer than others, but still has great pigmentation. I really love this shade.
Highness - is a gorgeous purple shade. It's less pigmented than Orbit and Ink, but buildable, so you can achieve nice look with it.
Thunder - is a grey shade, very soft, but less pigmented.
Maple - is a reddish brown shade with good pigmentation.
Flesh - is a peachy shade with good pigmentation. This shade is one of my favourites in this palette.
Noir - is a black shade with great pigmentation, but it's chalky, it's not so soft as other eyeshadows. It's not the blackest black eyeshadow, but by now you all probably know, that all Sleek palettes have black matt eyeshadow and that they're the best pigmented black eyeshadows ever (at least from those I tried).
Dune - is a light beige shade. It has very good pigmentation and I use it mostly in inner corner of my eyes.
Pillow Talk - is a white shade. The pigmentation isn't the best, but it's buildable and I use it mostly for hightlighting.
Paper Bag - is a nice brownish shade. It's soft and good pigmented.
Villain - is a plum shade, less softer than others, but very good pigmented.
Fern - is a forest green shade with great pigmentation.
Swatches are made on my bare skin, as usual I haven't used any eyeshadow base underneath. These are really nice eyeshadows, my favourites are Orbit, Ink, Highness, Flesh and Villain. I made a look with this palette here (sorry, but today it was too hot to create look with this palette for this post).
This palette is a part of their permanent line and it's still available for buying. You can get it on Sleek's official site. Slovenian ladies can buy it on Zapikonai, Moja drogerija or Ličila.si. As I said before, price is around 12 € in our country. But I think Sleek palettes are totally worth the money, because they're amazing.
What do you think about this palette, are those your colors or not? Thank you for reading!
