Sleek Oh So Special Palette Review & Swatches

For a long time after I got Sleek Oh So Special, I tried to put a finger on something that's not right about it. I stared at it....and pondered... but I couldn't figure it out. I put my photo alongside another photo from Google, then I saw it! The eyeshadows do not have the waffle design. Sheesh! I used to like that. I guess it's only done on limited edition palettes?
I'll let the pictures & swatches do most of the talking here. I'll just say that I love almost everything about this palette. I highly recommend it! There are festive shimmery shades, and there are everyday matte shades. If I had to pick one inexpensive/drugstore eyeshadow palette to gift to a friend, this is it. Cute shade names like Bow, Ribbon, Gift Basket & Celebrate make it all the more gift-worthy.


Cue in-your-face photo.....
Wha---?

1st Row: Bow, Organza, Ribbon, Gift Basket, Glitz, Celebrate 
I love ALL the eyeshadows in this row, especially Organza, Ribbon & Celebrate.
2nd Row: Pamper, Gateau, The Mail, Boxed, Wrapped Up, Noir
Now I'd change some shades in this row. I feel that Pamper & Gateau are similar to Ribbon & Organza in the top row. The Mail, Boxed & Wrapped Up could be a lil' more pigmented. My favorite is Noir- it is one of the most intense black eyeshadows, great to use as liner, but it's also prone to fallout.
EOTD using this palette. Details posted here

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
