Sleek i-Divine Oh So Special Palette | Swatches, Review & A Summer Look Video

Recently, on my birthday hunt for a new budget eyeshadow palette, I came across the Sleek i-Divine ranges and I decided, 'why not? Lets give it a try!' So I gifted myself with two completey different colour ranges to try out, one being the Sleek i-Divine Oh So Special Palette and the other, the Sleek i-Divine Ultra mattes V1 Brights Palette reviewed in another post here. In this post, I share swatches for this palette, my thoughts on the palette and include links to where you can get it cheaper than I did should you wish to try it yourself! I also have included in this post, a requested video tutorial with the palette. It is my Soft Natural Summer Smokey Look and you can click HERE to view it or scroll down below for the video.

Sleek i-Divine Oh So Special Palette | Swatches

My favourites from this palette, if I was to choose one, would be gateau because I feel it suits me the best. However, I have two other favourites and these are celebrate first, then organza. These, together with gateau, are very pretty shimmery shades. For highlighting, my favourite one to use is bow. It just works perfectly well and can be subtle or intense when played around with.

My least favourite would be ribbon, pamper and the mail. However, had these been shimmer shades I would have loved them. You can see in the finger tip swatches below that these three show up the least on my finger tips. On my hand, they appear quite powdery. The main reason why I am not particularly attracted to these three is that, I feel it takes quite a little bit more of an amount to create a good look with them, however I am willing to play around more with these three and they do work very well for highlighting.

All in all, I feel the palette makes a good drug store alternative, though it does have parabens in the ingredients as a note to anyone who is paraben conscious.
