Review: Sleek Eyeshadow Palettes (part two)

Part One Part Three

The Oh So Special Palette (soft pinks and dark colors)

This palette is a really good alternative for the Urban Decay Naked 3. I think that the pinks are the “rosy” part of the palette and you have a good variety of matte mid tone and dark shades. Grade: A

The Bad Girl Palette (smokey dark colors)

This is my least favorite palette. I feel as though the colors are too similar and you aren’t able to get a variety of looks. The quality is wonderful, but the color scheme is meh. Grade: B+

The Storm Palette (metallic colors and essential mattes)

My favorite palette out of all the Sleek palettes. I like a super metallic finish from my eyeshadows. One of the downsides of the palettes is because of the lack of mattes, it is hard to create a look with some dimension. I think that using metallic shadows in one eyeshadow look can turn muddy. Grade: A-
