Today I'm going to talk about two Sleek Makeup Palettes - Storm Palette and Acid Palette. The Storm Palette is a very neutral palette, while Acid Palettes is the one with neon colors.
I've seen lots of swatches and reviews about Sleek Makeup Palettes and in all the pictures they look so big! I always thought that they were as big (OK, almost as big) as the Coastal Scents 88 palettes. Nope. Far from it.
See how small are they?
One eye shadow is big as a 2 cents (Euro) coin.
I got this one, because I lost all hopes I will ever get a Naked Palette (from Urban Decay). The shadows are as with the Naked Palette neutral what is great for everyday wear. Luckily I got the Naked Palette, so that I can compare it with this palette.
Both palettes come with 12 eye shadows that are greatly pigmented. The main difference is (beside the price) the texture/formula. While the Storm Palette eye shadows are great, I feel you need more product to get the same opacity as with the Naked palette and so they bulk up a bit on your eyes. That really isn't a big problem with me, but it means they won't last the whole day on your eyes, but rather 6 hours (I have oily lids and I always use a primer).
Swatches as in the palette (no names :( )
It comes with 12 eye shadows - 3 matte and 9 shimmery
Some looks I did using this palette
I got this one, because I've heard great things about it and loved the idea of neon shades! Yay for playing with your makeup.

As you can see this Palette isn't as pigmented as the Storm one :/ Except for the black, silver and the green. But don't be fooled, they are buildable and you can get a really nice effect.
Some looks I did using the Acid Palette
+ 12 shadows in each palette (12x 0.03 oz or 1.1g)
+ Both are buildable
+ The Storm Palette is very pigmented
+ Both are very versatile
+ Mineral based
+ The packaging
+ The price
- The Acid Palette is less pigmented
- No names of the eye shadows
- Their Customer Service (terrible)
I definitely suggest you this palettes! The Storm Palette is great for neutral looks, while the Acid Palette is the one you can truly play with it (but you can also do a soft makeup). I will buy some more palettes, but NEVER again from their site!
Price: 8.50€ on their site, 10€ in Sephora
Customer Service: 1/5
