Sleek 'Oh So Special' eyshadow palette was my first palette which I bought just after starting reading beauty blogs and watching YouTube videos 2 years ago. Before that I was only buying smaller drugstore quads or single eyeshadows. But once I ventured into the world of bigger eyeshadow palettes there was not coming back ;) I absolutely love them and they're my biggest makeup obsession.
Recently, while watching some makeup tutorials, I came across a person who used Sleek palettes and that reminded me of my first palette which has been siting in my dressing table un-loved for long months. So I decided to play with it and I have fallen back in love with these eyeshadows. After that I just had to order some new Sleek palettes and decided to go for the latest limited edition Del Mar vol.II which is a continuation of Del Mar vol.I which was released last Summer and I was lucky to get my hands on it as well, you can see it in this picture on my Instagram. Both palettes are colourful, Summery, inspired by colours and atmosphere of Ibiza.
Seeing as the Del Mar vol.I is not officially available anymore and the Del Mar vol.II has been only recently released I decided to share the latter with you and maybe to inspire some of you to get it as it's just perfect for Spring/Summer if you like to experiment a bit with colour.
As usual with Sleek I-Divine palettes the packaging is black plastic, very slim and sturdy, with large mirror inside and it contains 12 eyeshadows.
The outer packaging of the palette looks beautiful, reflects the colours of the eyeshadows inside and it makes me want to go on holidays ASAP :)
There is a mix of matte and shimmery shades, they're all very nicely pigmented and while you need to build them up for higher intensity I don't think it's a bad thing, especially with bright colours as they're just easier to work with. All eyeshadows are silky soft, blend beautifully, last up to 10 hours on my lids without creasing and fading. There is a bit of fallout when applying them but nothing a tapping your brush and/or doing eye makeup first can't solve.
All the eyeshadows have names which nicely fit the Ibiza/holidays theme :)
Loco - very light peach shade with metallic finish.
San Antonio - matte bright peach shade with tiny silver flecks.
Ibiza Rocks - matte bright yellow.
Zoola - metallic yellow gold.
Pura Vida - matte mossy green.
Spotlight - grey with blue undertones with matte finish and small silver sparkles.
Pearl - intense white shimmer.
Ushuaia - dusty pink/beige with matte finish.
Puro - very pale lilac, matte.
Bora Bora - matte turquoise.
Ocean Beach - matte teal.
Siesta - dark grey-ish brown with matte finish.
Even though it seems like it's a crazy colourful palette you can create many day appropriate looks with it, mine favourite recently has been: Loco on the lid, Ushuaia in the crease, Siesta in the outer corner and on the lower lash line, San Antonio lightly above the crease to add beautiful warmth to the eyes.
Do you have any Sleek eyeshadow palettes? I've added another two to my collection which you could see here, so you can expect in the future some makeup looks using them :)
What do you think of Del Mar vol.II? Is it a palette you would use?
