Sleek Caribbean Collection, Curacao Palette - Swatches

I was lucky enough to win Dee's giveaway a while back, in which the gifts were provided by Beauty Emporium. One of the prizes was the Curacao Eyeshadow Palette from Sleek's Caribbean collection.


The packaging is typical Sleek packaging, which I like. Nice and simple with the collection and the name of the palette on display. The outer box is a good summary of the Caribbean I guess.


I love the shade names! They are all named after cocktails and I love cocktails so what's not to like!?

Top row close ups. My favourite on this row is Tequilla Sunrise. It is possibly the prettiest eyeshadow that I have ever seen. Though I'm not sure if I'm actually brave enough to wear this! I need inspiration on how to wear it.


Bottom row close ups. I'm quite torn on this row, between Apres Midori and Green Martini, both are so beautiful. Green Martini is more wearable for me personally but Apres Midori just has something so special about it. Again, I need inspiration on how to wear this!

Espresso Martini for me is the weakest link in this palette, as you can see by the swatch it is quite chalky and isn't greatly pigmented, this aside you can build it up and create a good look.

I think (correct me if I'm wrong) that the Caribbean collection was a limited edition one. I'm not sure how widely available this palette is now. Beauty Emporium no longer stock it.

Have you tried this palette? What do you think of it? If you have created any looks using it please send me the links.
