What Sleek says:

Multi-functional palette contains four eyeshadows and two blushers from our bestselling i-Divine and Blush range. Eye & Cheek Palette provides all of your colour essentials in one convenient compact.

These velvety smooth eyeshadows and blushers are highly pigmented and long-lasting, making blending and defining simple.

Each palette contains complementary neutral and bold shades suited to all skin tones.

Packaged in a handy travel sized compact, with magnetic snap-shut mechanism and also includes a large mirror and two essential brushes for effortless application.

See You at Midnight combines deep blue and pearlescent purple eyeshadows from our Romance i-Divine Palette. Along with Blush in Pomegranate, a golden berry hue and Antique a shimmery dusky rose, for a captivating look.

What I say:

First of all, you are in advantage if you are able to read and unlike me just buy on impulse. The palette includes eyeshadows from the Vintage Romance palette along with the blushes in Pomegranate and Antique, which besides Antique I already own. But Pomegranate swatched just looked so beautiful (and the photo above does it no justice)! Oh well, it definitely still is a handy palette for travelling and includes my favourite blush by Sleek along with some eyeshadows that I would wear on a regular basis.

My impression is that the packaging is a bit sturdier than Sleek’s regular eyeshadow palettes. I carried around several of them in the past when traveling and I noticed that over time a lot of the eyeshadows are breaking apart. The blush cases for example tend to close better from my experience, so hopefully this packaging works similar and keeps the eyeshadows save from damage.

The palette comes with a large, handy mirror and a brush and applicator. The latter two I personally don’t find too practical. I tried using the brush to apply the blush, but found it to be too stiff for my liking and couldn’t spread the blush as evenly as I would have liked. They might come in handy if there is nothing else at hand, but other than that I would not use them.

The palette is also available in Dancing Til Dusk with more neutral shades from Sleek’s Au Natural palette along with the blushes Mirrored Pink (used to part of a limited edition called Aqua Collection) and Sahara. Although I own all of the before mentioned besides Sahara, I could be tempted to buy it for travelling purposes, if the packaging proves to be handy, as this palette again includes some of my favourite Sleek products.

I think both palettes are great for someone who wants to try Sleek products for the first time as you can test their eyeshadows and blushes at the same time. As they mention on their website it includes some of their bestselling products, so you can get a good first impression on what other people like to use. It would also work well for someone who travels a lot and wants to have many products in one handy palette.
