Sleek 'Oh So Special' EOTD's

As promised, here are a few looks that I came up with whilst playing with the Oh So Special palette from Sleek MakeUp.

I fell in love at first light with a shade named 'Celebrate' from the palette and decided to use it all over the lids with some brown in the crease to blend it.


It's a unique blackened purple with a reddish duo chrome effect to it. Of course it is not any close to how intense Beauty Marked by MAC is, however it is the best dupe I could find for it for the price.

I would not disturb the color's uniqueness and would wear it on its own. It makes a great alternative to the typical black smokey eye.


A day time look had to be done considering the palette is full of wearable neutrals. I used 'Gateau' which is a pearlacent pinky-lilac all over the lids, with 'Gift Basket'(a bronze) and 'Wrapped Up'(a purple-taupe) in the outer corner.


I still cannot get enough of the palette and the looks that can be achieved using it are endless! Although the colors are neutral, I like how they are not boring and typical. Instead there are pretty unusual neutrals in here.

Two thumbs up!

@Daisy - Thanks! :) They have overgrown to an extent that I can't be bothered to thin or shape them anymore.
