REVIEW - SLEEK - Oh So Special Palette + Eye Looks :-)

Hullo Ladies!

I recently become obsessed with Sleek products and after years of hearing so many wonderful things about the eye shadow palettes, reading about them in all your blog posts, I decided to try them out.

I recently bought a few that I had my eye on. 

The one I really wanted to get was this Oh So Special palette.

I loved the look of it online and after finding it on amazon for £5.75 I decided to go for it :-) 

This palette contains 12 shadows, 5 shimmers and 7 mattes. 

From left to right - Bow, Organza, Ribbon, Gift Basket, Glitz, Celebrate, Pamper, Gateau, The Mail, Boxed, Wrapped Up and Noir. 

All of the shadows are pigmented and smooth and although I had read about the bad fall out you can get with Sleek I haven't noticed any more than I'd get with other brands which is good :-) 

Here's a few looks I've created with this palette! 

I created this pink/purple look for a meal out with the family! 

What I did : 

1) I primed my eyes with my Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer

2) I placed the colour Gateau all over the lid. 

3) Then I used Wrapped Up as a transition colour through the crease. 

4) I blended the colour Celebrate into the outer 'V'.

5) Then I took Gift Basket and ran that on my lower lash line. 

6) I put the colour Bow onto my brow bone and in my inner corner. 

7) Finally I lined my eyes with Bobbi Brown Long Wear Gel Liner in Black Ink and applied some Eylure False Lashes. 

I created this look yesterday :-) I just felt like a smokey eye and after falling in love with the blue colour in this palette I decided on this look! 

1) I primed my eyes with my Too Faced Shadow Insurance Primer.

2) I applied Glitz all over the lid, into the crease and on the lower lash line. 

3) I used Wrapped Up as a blending colour, taking it into the crease and above it. 

4) I then took Celebrate and put that into the crease. 

5) I then take a tiny amount of Noir and darken up the outer edge. 

6) I take some of my The Balm Mary Lou-Manzier and use it as brow and inner corner highlight.

7) Finally I line my eyes with some Bobbi Brown Gel Liner and swipe on some mascara. 

I would definitely suggest picking some of these palette up as they're super pretty, easy to work with and inexpensive!

I'm dying to get my hands on the Au Natural, I-Candy and the Garden Of Eden Palette. 

Do you love the Sleek Palettes?

Which one is your favourite?!

  1. That smoky eye is everything! I love how that palette has five mattes. Most palettes are kind of skimpy on the mattes! I also love that orange color. I may have to do a little hunting for the palette!

  2. Awww thanks hun! Yeah it has lots of beautiful matte shades :-) it's such a pretty colour and really pigmented! Hope you find it hun! I bet you'd love it!!!

  3. The first eye look is gorgeous! I find it so annoying when people review a palette without an eye look to show how they actually work together. This is great!
