Au natureal Palette
Sleek Makeup does awesome job with its eyeshadow palettes. They are pigmented, smooth, easy to blend, easy to carry (sleek), and long lasting. They don’t crease with an eyeshadow primer underneath.

Au Natureal palette is a part of Sleek Makeup Nude Collection. There are 12 eyeshadows in the palette and most of these are cool toned. There is good mix of both matte and shimmery shadows. If you love neutral eyeshadow colors, this is a great pick.

Most colors in the top row and either highlighting colors, all over lid colors or transition colors. They are not as pigmented as the bottom row colors . Especially the middle two eyeshadows in the top row – they are just a wash of color all over the lid and would give “my lids but better” kinda look to the lids.

All the eyeshadow in bottom row are beautifully pigmented. Zero complains.

Top : l-r nougat, nubuck, cuppucino, honeycomb, toast, taupe Bottom : l-r conker, moss, bark, mineral earth, regal, noir

Color Descriptions :

Nougat : Matte creamy white. Beautifully pigmented. Great for highlighting the browbone and inner corners of the eye. You just have to careful that you don’t go overboard with it.

Nubuck : A matte grey with slight mauve undertones. This is a super close dupe of MAC Copperplate eyeshadow.

Cappuccino : A beige biscuit shade. Not overly pigmented. It is best used as a wash of shadow all over the eye. Also, I find it quite helpful in blending the eyeshadows. I have worn this as an all over lid color with just eyeliner and it looked pretty nice. Gives a cleaner more defined look to the lids.

Honeycomb : A yellowish beige matte eyeshadow. Again, this one also lacks pigmentation and works pretty much the same way as cappuccino.I like this one for brow bone as well.

Toast : A matte peach shade. This is a great dupe for MAC Soft Brown Eyeshadow. Decent pigmentation.

Taupe :  A shimmery champagne beige. Great all over lid color and a pretty inner corner shade. Good Pigmentation.

(bottom row left-right)

Conker : A shimmer copper bronze shade. Excellent pigmentation.

Moss : A dirty moss green shade. Very fine, smooth and superbly pigmented.

Bark :  A cool toned matte dark taupe brown. Excellent for smokey eyes or filling in the brows.

Mineral Earth : A shimmer chocolate brown. Super!

Regal : A matte taupe brown with mauve undertones.

Noir : My holy grail matte black eyeshadow. I have not seen more beautiful and smoother black eyeshadow than this one.

 Closer Look:

Top : honeycomb, toast, taupe Bottom : l-r mineral earth, regal, noir

Swatches : Most top row swatches were just not showing on my skintone sos these are 2-3 swipes of each color.  Bottom row are just one swipes. :D

From distance if you see, there is a little similarity of colors between Sleek oh So special Palette and  Au Natureal. But in reality only the last two colors in the bottom row are repeated.

au naturel vs oh so special PeletteI personally have become a huge fan of Sleek I Divine palettes but if I really really have to pick one of the two palettes, I guess I’d go with oh! So Special. It gives me more color options, and  a good mix of warm and cool tones. In Au Natureal , the middle 2 shadows in top row didn’t impress me much but overall as a palette I think ,it rocks. The bottom eyeshadows are highly impressive. If you buy it, buy  it mainly for the bottom row. :D The bottom row colors work great as soft eyeliners as well.

Reply

Rati September 6, 2011 at 10:22 am

taos and taj mahal. but taos more. btw you must check out Exhibit A as well. It looks super scary red in pan but it’s beautiful on skin.

you buying it online?

asvita September 6, 2011 at 10:30 am

nah…my cousin has gone to the U.S…going to bombard him with demands :yahoo: ..i’ve seen swatches of exhibit A..luks lovely(i love red),but fear that i’l go overboard with it as I am jst starting with blushes.

Reply

Rati September 6, 2011 at 10:41 am

i guess then may be go for taos. :)) i chekced tajmahal this time during the tip. it gives that warm tanned look.

asvita September 6, 2011 at 10:58 am

Rati September 6, 2011 at 11:52 am

astiva i like using my eyeshadow both dry and wet . ummm i like fan brushes only for highlighting. for blush i use a proper blush brush. :D

Sophia September 6, 2011 at 9:52 pm

Hi Rati…I religiously follow IMBB and always look up product reviews whenever I plan on buying something…..I fell in love with the Oh so Special palette after I saw swatches on a UK blog and immediately ordered one for myself..Yeah and a pout polish-Electro Peach.Waiting anxiously for the package to arrive…The Au naturelle palette didn appeal to me though…looks a bit washed out according to me but the bottom row would look gr8 on indian skin tones……
