Claims : It’s the ultimate i-Divine that every woman should have in her possession, with 12 flattering on-trend shades to suit all skin tones no matter what the occasion, the Oh So Special palette will always deliver the perfect results.
Take your look from day time chic with matte browns and creamy beiges, through to sultry evening glamour with shimmering grays and smokey plums. A make-up bag staple and a must-have i-Divine you can rely on, so no matter where you are or what you’re doing you’ll look Oh So Special!
The packaging is a sleek black matte casing. There is “Sleek Makeup” embossed on the flap. On the inside is the wide mirror. The palette also includes a duo felt tip applicator, which I don’t think is quite useful.
Anyway, the palette is really gorgeous. I am sucker for such neutral browns, plums and blacks and this palette offers just all of it.
There is a transparent plastic sheet with names of the eyeshadows printed on it. I guess it would be best to stick that sheet on the mirror so that you don’t lose it. 🙂
All 12 eyeshadows in this palette are pigmented. The darker shades do have a fall out but they pack very nicely on eyes. And the colours come out true. I did not find any creasing problem with these eyeshadows but I did notice that they tend to start fading after around 6 hours. The good thing is that these eyeshadows don’t go patchy, just that the colour lightens up. So no worries. Overall they stay almost all day long. They don’t move or travel around the eye area. Infact, I had to literally use a soap to get rid of the colours. Even with water running on these eyeshadows they were not moving. Really good stuff!
The eyeshadows are smooth and easy to blend.
