It seems to me that everytime I feel the need to review something with a bit of colour in it, Sleek MakeUP eyeshadow palettes are the first thing that cross my mind. And for pretty good reason too.
Of the many wonderful things Sleek MakeUP has to offer, the thing that really gets to me are their palettes. And today, we'll be looking at their Oh So Special palette.
As with the other palette I reviewed which cooked up quite a Storm, this palette quite rave-worthy too.
In their trademark 12-pan, this palette consists of mostly neutrals, but with a little added kick with two shades of pinks. There are five shimmery shades, and seven matte shades, to take your makeup from day to night.
Texture-wise, as oft repeated by others, the shimmery shades tend to fare better than the matte ones, but I haven't had any real issues with this. As you can see from my swatches further down, the matte swatched just as well. As for pigment, I must say I'm pretty impressed. This little palette packs quite a punch.
And this time, I noticed Sleek MakeUP has started naming all the individual shades. Does make life so much easier, doesn't it?
And now for the swatches.
L-R: Bow, Organza and Ribbon.
L-R: Pamper, Gateau and The Mail.
L-R: Gift Basket, Glitz, and Celebrate.
L-R: Boxed, Wrapped up and Noir.
Of the 12 shades, the ones I really like are Gateau, Gift Basket, Glitz and Celebrate. Celebrate is a plum brown and a real beauty, and possibly my fave here. I must be honest though, to say that I'm not quite sure how to work in the matte pink shades into my eyemakeup routine. Haven't quite gotten there yet.
If you're still hemming and hawing over whether to pick this palette up, it's a decent neutral palette with some fun tossed in. And for USD12.60, it can't be beat. Personally, I think I would have loved it a wee bit more if they had tossed in two green shades instead of the pinks, but that's just me.
While it's not available here in Malaysia, you can easily pick it up online from the Sleek MakeUP website.
So. Are you gonna be getting something Oh So Special? *winks*
