Sleek "Oh So Special" Palette: Swatches!

Sleek has added a new eyeshadow palette to their line of products, called Oh So Special. Eyeshadow palettes are one of the products Sleek is most famous for: they have a wide variety of options, are affordable, and are good quality.


<-- more -->The shades in this particular palette are mostly on the warm side: pinks warm browns, and a few cool colors (dark grey, black) thrown in.


The finishes vary between matte, satin, and almost-metallic, which is something I like in a palette. I don't like when a palette is all one finish, because it limits your ability to play with textures.


These colors are extremely pigmented and blend very easily. Swatch time!



I definitely think this palette could be of good use to anyone looking for a nice range of everyday colors, however, if you aren't a fan of pinks, I would skip it (considering 1/3 of the shades are pink). I received this as a gift from my friend Fleur (check out her blog here!) who lives in the UK, and I believe it is sold in stores there. For those of you who live elsewhere, this product can be purchased at Sleek's online store for $12.60!

Have you tried any Sleek products?
xx, Allison

  1. I've always wanted to try Sleek! All of their shadows look extremely pigmented, so I'm hoping to get my little hands on one of those palettes someday!

  2. I also have this palette, and I love it! The colors in it are so beautiful ♥

    They don't sell Sleek where I live either, but I don't like to get Sleek products from the actual Sleek website, because I think the shipping costs are ridiculous! I buy all my sleek products from an ebay seller called Vanitypalace. Her shipping costs are a lot less, and everything I've bought from her is in perfect condition. So check out this shop if you wanna try Sleek but don't wanna pay $13.50 for international shipping ;)

  3. By the way, I'm not affiliated with Vanitypalace in any way. I just wish someone had told me about their existence ;)

  8. Those are some great colors.
    I've been watching your videos for like 6 months now and never knew you had a blog until today! So glad I decided to read the down bar.

    I love those pink shades. Never tried Sleek, but might have to now!

  10. This looks like a palette I need in my life! All the colors are gorgeous! I just wish Sleek cosmetics were a little easier to get in the US.

    Are you going to do a tutorial with this palette? Would love to see one! :)

  11. I love this palette! But since i live in europe its really easy to get my hands on sleek cosmetics. But you should try out their blushes. They are amazing! :)

  14. I want Sleek products SO bad! It sucks living here in the U.S. because their products aren't sold at local places, and shipping online is ridiculous.
    But hopefully they'll have some sales soon so I'll take the plunge and make an order because your swatches are gorgeous, I wouldn't mind owning this palette ;)!
