So,I was going through the blog posts to check out my own review of Sleek Oh So Special when I realised that I haven’t reviewed this beauty.A palette that has a SPECIAL place in my vanity.Here’s the review of the same:
ABOUT:It’s the ultimate i-Divine that every woman should have in her possession, with 12 flattering on-trend shades to suit all skin tones no matter what the occasion, the Oh So Special palette will always deliver the perfect results.
Take your look from daytime chic with matte browns and creamy beiges, through to sultry evening glamour with shimmering grays and smokey plums. A make-up bag staple and a must-have i-Divine you can rely on, so no matter where you are or what you’re doing you’ll look Oh So Special!
PRICE: $11.99 but shipping and custom levy heavy charges(double the amount 😦 )
PACKAGING: Sleek palettes have a matte black outer body with “Sleek Makeup” embossed on the flap.Inside,a transparent plastic sheet is provided with names of the shadows written on it.The packaging is sturdy to certain extent as it survived some falls but later,one of my shadow broke(in the earlier palette).A dual ended sponge applicator is also provided that is hardly of any use.
I have taken this pic from google for reference purpose as I have lost my transparent sheet which had the names.
Bow: A very light white-skin colored shade.I wont call it white to the fullest. Good to be used on brow bone for matte eye makeup look. It is a bit chalky shade.
Organza: Shimmer Light Pink.It is frosted.Nicely pigmented and blends easily.It has minor fallout.
Ribbon: Matte Pink. Its a very buildable color.The shade is slightly chalky but nice to work out for cue,girly looks.
Gift Basket: Shimmer browny bronze.A gorgeous shade for day looks when you want a hint of shimmer but it should not look OTT.Pigmented!!
Glitz: shimmer metallic blue.An awesome shade for blue smokey looks and for blending deep navy blue shade in the crease.Nicely pigmented.Least fallout.
Celebrate: shimmer Deep purple.A very sultry shade.It is one of those shades that don’t need to paired with for a smokey look.Just apply it and blend it in the crease for uber hot look.The shade is amazingly pigmented.
Pamper: matte pastel pink.It is slightly lighter than Ribbon but a very cute shade.The shade is slightly chalky but works well over a primer.
Gateau: Duochrome pink-purple with golden.I can’t explain how much I adore this shade and use this everytime and I am using this palette.The shade is pretty,classy,chic,stunning and everything I can use to describe it.The duochrome golden effect adds to the beauty.The shade can be used as an all over lid shade or to highlight the browbone and inner corners of the eyes.Amazingly pigmented,barely there fallout.
The Mail: Matte Tan.The shade might look useless at first but mind it,this is used every time for my looks as it is a great transition shade.
Boxed: Matte Brown.Nice crease shade for smokey looks as well as my only shade that I use for defining my brows.
Wrapped Up: Matte Browny Purple.Nice shade for day wear.It is slightly dry in texture.
Noir: Matte Black.The blackest black shadow I have ever used!!! Cant do anything without this shade!!
MY VIEWS: All the shades are different in terms of intensity,finish and staying power but the palette is very useful when U need one product for day to night time looks.It serves all the purpose;be it smokey look,spring look,chic look,sultry look,subtle looks,everyday wear look,no-makeup look as the shades are so versatile.
I recently did a smokey look using Noir,Gateau,The Mail,Boxed from the palette.Here’s the outcome:
All the shades are nicely pigmented.Staying power is around 7-8 hours over a good primer.I have never encountered a problem of creasing or fading with these shades.I have used this palette in numerously and continue to use it again and again.
RECOMMENDATION:There’s absolutely nothing that I don’t like about this palette.I had lost mine but got a new one ASAP as I cannot do anything without this gorgeous beauty.I have recommended this to so many girls and they are ever so happy with the palette.Highly recommend checking this out!!!
