My FOTD ft.Sleek "oh so special" & Gerard cosmetics "1995"

Today's post is a pretty long back one, which was lying untouched and unpublished in my drafts. So, I thought it's time that I release this one and make it public to everyone...

A long back post of my look playing with Sleek i-divine eyeshadow palette in "oh so special" and "Gerard Cosmetics" lipstick in "1995".

"A pretty neutral kind of lip shade when paired up with shimmery smokey grey eyes then it creates a pretty subtle glam look."
 A perfect smokey look which might be uneasy or uncomfortable for few people but my comfort zone lies in it.


Starting with a short review about the palette:-

The palette is perfect for day and night look. It is easy to carry as it sleek in packaging.

Availability:- Sleek website
Price:- $11.99 + shipping

The sleek palette is most affordable palette that is worth buying for beginners mostly. The sleek and sturdy packaging made the palette travel-friendly. Each eyeshadow is quite pigmented. The shimmery shades are more pigmented than the matte ones. The matte one do have little fallouts which I think can be sorted with proper eye shadow primer. The shadows stay pretty 7 hours on my oily lid along with primer and without primer, it stays 5 hours. 

The Sleek i-divine palette consists of 12 mixed shades of both matte and shimmer. On my upper lid, I used "Glitz" and "Noir" shades from the palette. To blend the harsh line I use the shade "The Mail". On my lower lid, I use "Glitz" on my lash line followed by a black Kajal to tightline upper and lower lashline.

Over in all Sleek "oh so special" palette is a must have a palette in your stash if you are an eyeshadow lover. It is one of the hottest selling palettes in their website till now.

On my lips, I used "Gerard Cosmetics" Lipstick in the shade "1995".

Coming to a short review of the lipstick :-

It comes in a beautiful golden case which enhances my lipstick stash to some extent. The packaging of the lipstick is so classy that I can grab few more from this range due to it's packaging only.


My experience with lipstick:-

The lipstick is matte in texture which is smooth on lips. Although it claims to be matte but I personally feel it is satin in texture on my lips. The lipstick is perfect neutral shade for me. It is medium pigmented, need 2-3 swipes to get opaque coverage. It stays pretty 4-5 hours on my lips. It fades evenly a bit after any drinks or meal but as it fades evenly it doesn't look patchy on lips.
The Gerard cosmetics websites always have some offers going on so it is always better to grab these lipsticks during the offer.

Over in all Gerard cosmetics, lipsticks are the most beautiful packaging affordable lipsticks.

A closer look of my eyeshadows:-

So, finally here is the FOTD featuring Sleek "oh so special" palette on my lids and "Gerard cosmetics" lipstick "1995" on my bare lips.

I hope you like today's post.
I will see you soon with another interesting post soon.
