Manhattan Multi Effect Eyeshadow 92W Caramel Fudge, Manhattan Intense Effect Eyeshadow 21A Devil Honey

Hi there! This post is about two random eyeshadows which I bought as a set of two in Poundland (could have been Poundworld – I’m not sure). The shimmery brown one is Manhattan Multi Effect Eyeshadow 92W Caramel Fudge, and the sparkly golden one is Manhattan Intense Effect Eyeshadow 21A Devil Honey.

(I know, the swatch photo isn’t my best, but Devil Honey simply wouldn’t show without flash. But you can click on the photo to enlarge it.) In terms of quality I’m very happy with these eyeshadows. They’re easy incredibly silky, they last long, the colours are intense and easily blendable. I love to mix these two with other shades from my Sleek Au Naturel palette because these two would fit right in.

I’ve seen lots of different Manhattan products at the bargain stores recently. If you keep your eyes peeled, you might not only find single items for £1, but also sets of two products for £1.

Sleek i-Divine Au Naturel Palette

Hi there! I finally got myself this pretty eyeshadow palette: Sleek i-Divine Au Naturel (scroll down for swatches). Every time there’s a 3 for 2 offer, this palette is usually sold out on day one, but this time I was lucky!

I wanted this palette for quite some time because the shades – most of which are mattes – are simply stunning, but considering that I’ve got other eye palettes, this one wasn’t a priority. However, with the 3 for 2 offer, I thought I’d treat myself to it (and two more palettes, by the way, but those will be looked at separately)
Sleek Au Naturel 1
This i-Divine palette comes with a mirror and it contains the following shades:
Top: Nougat, Nubuck, Cappuccino, Honeycomb, Toast, Taupe
Bottom: Conker, Moss, Bark, Mineral Earth, Regal, Noir

Taupe, Conker, Moss and Mineral Earth are shimmery shades, everything else is matte. My favourites are Cappuccino, Conker, Bark and Regal – shades 3, 7, 9 and 11 in the swatch below.

Just in case you think I swatched 11 of the 12 eyeshadows only… no, all 12 are shown in the swatch. Nougat, the first shade, simply doesn’t show much on my pale arms.
Sleek Au Naturel
I like this palette very much. The neutral shades are perfect for beautiful everyday looks. But the shimmers are a nice addition to this mainly matte palette because they can add a touch of subtle glamour in an instant.

The shimmery shades are incredibly buttery – they’re a dream to work with. The mattes are not as buttery, but I wouldn’t call them chalky either. They’re actually quite blendable. To sum it up: Yes, I do recommend this eyeshadow palette!

Sleek i-Divine Au Naturel is available for £7.99, but keep your eyes peeled for offers!
