When I saw the Sleek Makeup Glory i-Divine palette, I had to stop myself from going “Eeee!!!” The reason is because I’m an Anglophile and because I have a soft spot for the London Tube 😀 Have you ever read Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere? I loved that book because it brought the London Underground to life 😀
It never ceases to amaze me how old some of the stations are. Baker Street Station for example (with its Sherlock silhouettes on the wall tiles) is one of the oldest stations, opened in 1863. Everytime I see the outlets in the ceiling which used to allow smoke from the trains to disperse, I wonder just what it must have been like back in the day – dirty I bet 😛 I used to live near the Central, Circle and District lines. So seeing an eyeshadow palette with colours named after the different colour coded London Underground lines made me feel all nostalgic.
The Glory palette is part of the limited edition 2012 collection which commemorates something quintessentially London, the London Underground; and the 2012 Summer Olympics which is held in London this year. Exciting times! This palette is, I feel, a palette of contrasts. Let me show you the swatches and tell you why.
