I'm back again with another lot of swatches, this time for the Sleek Graphite Palette.
First things first...If you love grey and purple, you'll really like this palette, because aside from the two highlight shades the rest of the shadows are varying shades of these colours.
These were all swatched over the top of a sheer layer of NYX's Jumbo Pencil in Milk, so that the eyeshadows had something to grab onto, and to give a better idea of the colours.
Here's what the palette looks like :)
Below are swatches of the first row of shadows first in natural light, then also with a soft flash:
The first shade is a frost finished white shade, would be a really nice inner corner of the eye highlight.
The second shade is also a frosty pale peach toned highlight shade.
The thrid shade is a medium toned silver with a pale silver sheen to it and a Satin finish.
The fourth shade is a slightly more grey based version of the previous shade with the same sheen and finish.
The last two shades in the row are extremely similar, which is a little disappointing, the sixth shade in the row is maybe the tiniest bit darker but only just.
Next up are photos of the swatches of the second row of this palette, again in natural light first, then with a soft flash:
The first shade in this row is a dark steel grey and Satin finish.
The second shade is a really nice black with a really dark grey/silver sheen to it, this shade is also in the Bad Girl palette.
The thrid shade is a standard matte black is pretty decently pigmented even without a base.
The fourth shade has a cool-toned bluish grey base, with purple and blue shimmer throughout.
The fifth shade is a Satin, very greyish purple base with a pink/purple sheen to it.
The final shade is a gorgeous violet base with a slightly blue sheen and Satin finish.
Overall I like this palette but the thing that bugs me about it is a lot of the silver/dark grey shades in it are really similar to each other. The differences are that subtle that its hard to really pick up on them unless you look really closely, but as always the shadows are very pigmented and blend very easily.
I think if I had to chose between this palette and the Bad Girl one though, I would rather have Bad Girl, as there is a bit more of a range in the shades within it than the Graphite one.
Where To Buy:
The only place I know where you can buy this palette now is on Ebay, as it is no longer on the Sleek website and I think it was a Limited Edition, so you may have to pay a bit more for it if you still want to get your hands on it.
