The idea behind Sleek Saturday is to
Here is it in his splendid beauty:
This palette is unusual for me: such a drastic change from the bright vivid colours I am used to. Oh So Special is definitely more neutral and demure than many of its little sisters (palette in French is feminine) but I am welcoming it in my house and on my eyes with open arms as it’s about time I tried my hands at a more wearable daytime look.
Oh So Special has a perfect mix of matte and shimmering shadows which suit me perfectly. All the shadows are really pigmented and very easy to work with, apart BOW and PAMPER. My favourite shades are WRAPPED UP and GATEAU. This palette, strangely reminds me of a mix of the STORM palette meets the AVOIR LA PECHE palette, which I can’t wait to play with and blog about.
My look had to incorporate WRAPPED UP and GATEAU, with a dash of RIBBON and BOXED. For the highlighter, I just had to ‘cheat’ and use my trusty Vanilla from MAC as BOW could simply not deliver.
I am quite happy the way it turned out. Since creating this look ‘for the blog’ I found myself recreating it twice after that. It makes me very happy and ‘oh so special’ is definitely going to be a keeper.
Not much else is going on the face, although I am very excited to tell you about my new lip product. So excited, in fact, that I wanted to devote its own little blog post. Click here to see what I’ve got on my lips.
I would like to dedicate this episode to Kellie (Big Fashionista) who inspired me to use the ‘Oh So Special’ this week hoping she will play with her palette soon and would like to thank Missy Ellie and Helen for having joined me this week.
