Sleek – Oh so Special palette swatch / spidermetrix

Hello again dolls!

(Greek version here)

After one month of my order (Amazon.co.uk), it finally came. Took lots of time, compared to other orders from there, and other shipments from UK.
Sleek – oh so special on my hands, finally! I’ve been flirting with this pallete for quite some time.

 

Before writing about the pallete, I want to tell you how I got this palette.
Long time ago, my brother asked me to sign up in a poll site. Its called Spidermetrix.
What’s that? You complete polls and you get points as rewards which when they will be enough, you can cash out . Either by cash, donation or amazon voucher.
I collected enough all those months, so I got an amazon voucher..
And here I am …
Whoever wants to sign up, can do it from this link. There is no spam mails , so don’t worry.
 
 Back to our subject now…
I decided to get it from amazon, since the shipping from Sleek’s site is 9 euro, which is extrememely high.
Like the blushes that I swatched recently, so the palette, has great pigmentation.
Bow – Organza – Ribbon – Gift Basket – Glitz – Celebrate
 
Pamper – Gateau – The mail – Boxed – Wrapped up – Noir
Bow – Very very light beige. A color that I use only to the brow-bone.
Organza- I love it. Its a shimmering pink. Although I love matte shades.
Ribbon – Pinky / Salmon.
Gift Basket – Bronze.
Glitz – Blue-grey. Not my favorite, too dark for me.Μπλε-γκρί να το πω? Θα το πω. Δεν τρελαίνομαι ιδιαίτερα, δεν μπορώ να χρησιμοποιώ και τόσο σκούρο χρώμα.
Celebrate – Black/coffee with red shimmer. Me likey.
Pamper- Pinkish, a lighter version of Ribbon.
Gateau- Shimmery lilac. Perfect.
The Mail-Taupe ?
Boxed- A matter brown.
Wrapped UP – Can’t describe it . Like a purplish,brown?
Noir – Black. Perfect black.
Half and half.
 
My two favorites.
What’s suprising is that, except the amazing pigmentation (its not that obvious in the pics, after all, I suck at taking photos, so is my camera), the eyeshadows also apply very smoothly. They are not chalky, not even the shimmery ones.

The brush is awful, but the mirror on the top, is great.

See the swatch in my hand. I haven’t used primer (I will from now on)
Bow – Organza – Ribbon – Gift Basket – Glitz – Celebrate (Bow is non-visible here.)
         
Pamper – Gateau – The mail – Boxed – Wrapped up – Noir
         

I love it. the colors are all fantastic, and you can use it both for everyday make up and night one.

You are gonna love it.

Any of you have it already? What do you think?

 

Lots of love
