I feel like I say this every time, but Sleek MakeUP have really outdone themselves. This palette is perfect for 2014 as it contains 3 lilac/ purple shades which resemble Pantone’s colour of the year – Radiant Orchid. The gorgeous lilac and dusky purple shades are complimented by the earthy green & brown tones in the palette.
If you are an avid fan of Sleek MakeUP and own basically all of their palettes (like myself) then it will be no surprise to you that the shades in the Garden of Eden palette are rich and highly pigmented. Sleek have mixed the types of finishes, so that there is a lovely variety in the palette – from shimmer to matte to metallic shades, this palette has everything!
Gates of Eden – This shade is a warm coppery gold which is fabulously complimented by the brown & lilac shades.
Eve’s Kiss – The soft lilac shade has a metallic finish and is the lightest of all the lilac shades. This shade is perfect for the inner corner of your eye.
Paradise on Earth – The taupe purple has a stunning high shine, shimmer finish. I absolutely adore this shade when worn with Pyton to create a unique smokey eye.
Python – This shade is perfect for adding definition to your eyes as it is a deeper shade of purple with a chocolate brown tone shining through.
Forbidden – The matte lilac shade has a gold sparkle finish. This shade isn’t as pigmented as the rest so we recommend using an eye primer to achieve the full vibrancy of the colour.
Flora – Flora is a matte brown shade, perfect for adding definition to your look around the eye lid crease.
Entwind – The taupe brown, matte shade has gold speckles, so once again I would advise using a primer with this shade to get the full vibrancy of the gold sparkles.
Adams Apple – If you love bright colours, then Adams Apple is perfect. This shade is a matte lime green, and personally, this is my least favourite in the palette.
Fig – The golden based green is ideal for giving your eyes a pop of colour. I think this shade is the most striking in the Garden of Eden palette.
Evergreen –The highly pigmented blue based green, gives you with a fabulous high shine finish.
Fauna – The striking green has a metallic finish & is perfect combined with flora & Tree of Life when creating an earthy smokey eye.
Tree of Life – The deep, forest green shade has a matte finish.
