Sleek-oh-so-special-palette

Hi every­one! I’m back from my blog­ging hia­tus and super excited to get back into every­thing. I’ve had a really great cou­ple of months but I missed you guys so much! I’ve raved about Sleek cos­met­ics before for their con­sis­tent qual­ity and great prices. Of their ‘i-Divine’ eye­shadow palettes I own two: Bad Girl and Oh So Spe­cial. You can read about Bad Girl here but today I’m talk­ing about my favourite! Some of the shades are less pig­mented than oth­ers but over­all they’re pretty amaz­ing and I get a lot of use out of it.

As with my Bad Girl review I’ve only swiped the colours once or twice so you can get an idea of the opac­ity of each. None of the shades really come close to the thick, bright for­mu­las in Bad Girl but they build up really eas­ily and go on quite smoothly. I use this palette for nearly all my day­time looks when I can’t be both­ered trav­el­ing with a bunch of sin­gles and smaller palettes. It’s really handy and ver­sa­tile for day to night! The biggest com­plaint I have is that I some­how received a dud that con­tained two pans of Boxed instead of a Wrapped Up, which would have been a really nice brown matte colour to use in the crease.

Bow is a creamy matte off-white colour, great as a sub­tle high­light on the brow or inner cor­ner for softer looks.

Organza is a super gor­geous pearl shade with a warm peachy pink shimmer.

Rib­bon, a soft peach pink matte shade, I don’t get a lot of use out of. it’s gor­geous, but it really doesn’t look good on my skin tone, pity.

Gift Bas­ket is a great warm brown shim­mer shade that’s prob­a­bly my favourite out of the palette. It’s a great shade to use on it’s own when I’m feel­ing lazy and works eas­ily for day and night­time looks.

Glitz and Cel­e­brate pearles­cent gun­metal and dark plum/purple respec­tively, are the two deep­est, most dra­matic colours in the palette that I love for smokey eyes and deep­en­ing a day­time look for night.

Pam­per is the lighter sis­ter colour of Rib­bon, so is another shade I don’t reach for very often. Like Rib­bon this is a soft peachy pink matte.

Gateau is a cool pink pearles­cent shade and is the pret­ti­est from the whole palette in my opin­ion. Super gor­geous and girly!

The Mail is another shade I love for every­day use. I love it for warm­ing up the crease and adding a lit­tle depth when I can’t be both­ered get­ting ready (which is a lot of the time).

Now I’m fairly sure the shade I have next is Boxed, I got two pans of the same thing, which was a bit dis­ap­point­ing. I actu­ally didn’t notice at first and thought I was just too une­d­u­cated in colour to see the dif­fer­ence! Once I got online and saw other people’s palettes and swatches I realised I was miss­ing one and it was too late to return it, damn.

And last but not least is Noir, the matte black that comes in the major­ity of the Sleek palettes. For some rea­son this Noir is less pig­mented than the one that came in Bad Girl, but a lot less messy and chalky also which is a plus. The inclu­sion of Noir makes the palette a lot more ver­sa­tile, if all else fails I can always add some drama to my look with a bit of black through the crease or in the outer V.

I would rec­om­mend this palette for just about any­one! I was torn between this and Au Naturel at first but I’m really glad I got this one, it’s served me really well since I got it. It’s got some gor­geous every­day looks and you can really ramp up the pretty girly colours or switch it to a sul­try night time look in a heart­beat. This baby is only $12.00AUD from Sleek’s web­site here and is worth every penny.
