Review – Sleek Bad Girl i-Divine Eye Shadow Palette + ZA True White Liquid Foundation
Today, i’ll be reviewing the Sleek Makeup Bad Girl i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette and the ZA True White Liquid Foundation in OC00. I bought the eyeshadow palette from Luxola during their recent 35% off sale. There are a total of 12 colors in the palette, and it retails for S$20 on the Luxola website. I have the Original i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette as well (You can refer to the review here), and so far i’m enjoying both. As for the foundation, I purchased it from the Tokyu department store during my recent trip to Bangkok. It retails for 479 Baht (~S$19.50) there, whereas the retail price in Singapore is S$23.50.
Sleek Makeup Bad Girl i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette
The product is housed within a slim black casing that comes with a mirror, and a 2-sided foam applicator. As with my original i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette, the colors are vibrant and pigmented, and are pretty long-lasting without much creasing at the end of the day. Very little fall out if any, for some of the colors in this palette too. If you have oily lids like i do, please apply an eyelid primer first. There’s also a variety of looks that you can create with this palette, which is extremely value-for-money in my opinion. My favorite colors are Gullible, Gun Metal, Intoxicated and Twilight.
There’s 1.1g of product for each of the 12 colors in this palette of mineral-based eyeshadow colors, and it is made in China.

ZA True White Liquid Foundation in OC00 (SPF 25 PA++)
The foundation comes in a squarish glass bottle with a pump that makes for easy and sanitary dispensation of the product. I like most products that come with pumps as it makes it easier to control the amount of product that you need and avoid wastage. The consistency is smooth and light and leans towards runny, making it a breeze to blend whether with fingers or a brush (depending on your preference). It provides light to medium coverage, and was able to conceal the redness on my cheeks, around the nose and mouth. It was also able to cover lighter spots on my face, but you’ll probably need a concealer if you want to conceal darker spots.
There are a total of 6 shades available from this range. They are OCOW, OC00, OC10, OC20, OC30 and PO10. The former 4 are yellow-based, and the last one pink-based. OC00 was a great match for my skin color, and it gives a nice, natural radiant finish to the skin. I have oily combination skin, and the True White Liquid Foundation offers fairly good sebum control, and performs better than my Maybelline Pure Liquid Mineral Foundation (SPF 18) in this aspect. However, in comparison, the Maybelline foundation provides a slightly more ‘matt’ finish as well which i prefer in general.
This foundation claims to ‘achieve a white, pearly, radiant finish’. It also claims to contain ‘Bright White Complex, Vitamin C and Vitamin E. This bottle contains 30ml of product, and is made in Taiwan.
