Sleek “Oh So Special” Palette

Having never purchased anything from Sleek before – when I bumped into a display in my local Boots and everything was on offer, I couldn’t hold back!  I decided to jump into the deep end buying a few things for myself and a few gifts.

One thing I purchased was an eye shadow palette called Oh So Special, which has beautiful pink/nude brown colours with a few sparkles thrown in.  The compact itself looks so nice with a matte black case and a huge mirror on the inside!  Also included was a double ended pad eye shadow brush, which although working perfectly fine isn’t something I’d recommend using to get the best from the shadows.

The colours are (top row, left to right) Bow, Organza, Ribbon, Gift Basket, Glitz and Celebrate (bottom row, left to right) Pamper, Gateau, The Mail, Boxed, Wrapped Up and Noir.  All the colours look great on, but definitely need a primer underneath the shadow to help them fix to the eyelid, without a primer they look fine but lack the depth of colour that using a primer gives – added bonus of a primer, the shadows last for hours and hours!  They blend well, and fallout is minimum.
