Oh so special, oh so perfect for travelling
When I went to Paris with my friend Brittany/Tribal Faerie she brought me some gifts from England, one of the gifts was the Sleek Oh So Special Palette. I absolutely fell in love with this palette and it’s now one of my travel essentials. Today I’m going to explain to you why this palette is so amazing.
I already own one Sleek MakeUP i-Divine palette, the Storm palette, a very dark palette that contains the perfect colours for a smokey-eye, funny enough it looks very similar to the Urban Decay Smoked Palette to me. The Oh So Special palette looks nothing like the Storm palette, it looks softer and sweeter with a lot of neutrals and pinks.
All Sleek i-Divine palettes come in simple and sleek black casings that are easy to open. When opened you’ll find a large mirror, 12 eyeshadows and a sponge-tip applicator.
What makes this palette so perfect is that it contains all the essentials, a matte highlight shade, a matte medium brown for blending, a matte black to smudge along the lash line or to make a look smokey, matte browns that can be used for filling in the brows. It also contains some shimmery shades I like to use on the lids and all the pink shades can be used as blush. This palette basically contains almost everything I need for a complete look.
The Sleek Oh So Special palette contains 12 eyeshadows, 5 of those have a shimmery finish and 7 of them have a matte finish. Almost colours were very pigmented, with the exception of Bow, which is hardly visible on my medium skin ton. All shades blend like a dream but for ultimate staying power I do recommend using a eyshadow primer under the eyeshadows to prevent the colours from creasing or fading.
Here’s an overview of the colours included in this palette accompanied by a short description:

What I like about it:
- It’s inexpensive.
- It comes with a large mirror.
- The packaging is sleek, small and sturdy.
- It contains a lot of matte eyeshadows.
- You can create a great variety of looks with this palette.
- Some of the shades can be used as blush.
- The colours are very pigmented and are easy to blend.
- It’s travel-friendly.
What I don’t like about it:
- I never use the sponge-tip applicators it comes with.
- Sleek products aren’t easy find in The Netherlands.
Ever since I got the Sleek Oh So Special palette it has been my go-to palette for travelling. Simply because it’s small and therefore easily fits in my make-up bag and contains all the essentials.
