Sleek Divine Mineral Based Eyeshadow Palette in OH SO SPECIAL

Hi dearies!
Today, I'll share with you my two cents on Sleek Palette in OH SO SPECIAL.
This palette is definitely good for day to night time! I felt love at first sight on this palette (knowing how I love neutrals, mattes and really wearable eye colors).

PRODUCT CLAIMS:
Source: Sleek Official Website
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 day time 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!

We've recently given our i-Divines a makeover! The outer packaging has been updated and the way the eye shadows are pressed are different. They are now pressed flat instead of the original waffle print.

PRODUCT REVIEW


 PACKAGING:
-Comes in very decent, sturdy, black case
-Convenient size for travelling since the size is 5.5 x 3 inches
-Comes with a mirror inside and a sponge tip applicator which actually has a good quality.
It's not crappy like the sponge tip applicator that comes in palettes
-Shadow names were printed on the plastic protector.
I wish it was printed on the palette itself.

SWATCHES & PIGMENTATION:

The 12 eyeshadow colors:

Pan Size:
-about 1 inch in diameter
Here's a comparison with a peso coin and five peso coin

Swatches:


Pigmentation:
Bow
-The sheerest among all eye shadows in this palette. I initially thought it was matte but surprisingly it has sheen on it . Thus, making this great for highlighting the brow bone. However, this color is the most hardest to pick up.
Organza
-This beautiful peachy pink shadow with specs of gold is prolly my 2nd fave out of the bunch. Color suits my taste very well and the pigmentation is incredibly great. Glides and blends on easily.
Ribbon
-A warm pink matte palette. It's actually pigmented than other matte eye shadows from Sleek.
Gift Basket
-A highly pigmented shimmery bronze. Great to pack on eyelids and blends easily.
Glitz
-A shimmery eye shadow that is best for night gigs! This reminds me a lot of Gunmetal from my UD Naked palette.
Celebrate
-A shimmery eye shadow that is somewhat like a cranberry color but more on purple than red with a hint of black on it.
Pamper
-This matte pale pink eye shadow will definitely add warmth on eyes. It's a little chalky than other. Plus,  I just hope the pan was big big enough for my blush brush to fit in perfectly as I am a fan of this colors for my cheeks! How I'd love to use this as blush instead *sigh!*
GATEAU
-Definitely my favorite! It looks violet on pan but it appears to be TAUPE-ish when swatched. I just love it! Pigmentation is great too!
The Mail
-This matches my skin tone well. It reminds me of Honeycomb from my Sleek Au Naturel Palette.
Boxed
-A matte cool dark brown that can deepen the crease well.
Wrapped Up
-A rich matte dark brown with red undertone.
Noir
-A matte black which is very pigmented.


Ingredients List for those who are interested...
Don't expect it to be really mineral as what the name says.


Conducted a little water test...
Pretty good right? Might as well worth the purchase for those who have oily lids.
Btw, all swatch photos have no eye primer at all. Even this one below...

Overall:
This palette is a great addition to my collection. It's great to work with subtle to smokey and even some flamboyant looks. I like the combination of colors and the quality is good specially the shimmer shadows. 
I'd definitely film several tutorials with this so please stay tuned.
I recommend Sleek Oh So Special Palette!
*Two Kikay Thumbs Up!*
