Sleek Oh So Special palette; photos and swatches

Yesterday I showed you the Sleek Matte Palette that I picked up on a recent Belfast trip.  I also picked up this little beauty, the Oh So Special palette and it's absolutely gorgeous!  I hadn't researched this palette before picking it up and there were no testers open, so I had to be a bold child and open the packaging to see what it was like.  In about 2.4 seconds, I knew I had to have this.  Look!

Mixing both shimmery and matte shades, this palette has something for everyone.  The top row has two stunning shades that I would buy in single shadows in a heartbeat.  Wanna see?  Please place your eyeballs on Glitz and Celebrate on the right there.

L-R: Bow, Organza, Ribbon, Gift Basket, Glitz, Celebrate.

L-R: Pamper, Gateau, The Mail, Boxed, Wrapped Up, Noir.

Now, the Noir shade in this palette is so much more pigmented than in the Matte Palette.  The swatch you see above is with one pass of my finger... Amazing.  The matte shade, Boxed is a bit of a let down, as is Bow up the very top.  I'd use Bow to blend the edges up at my brow bone as there's no real colour payoff.  But the stars of the show are Organza, Glitz and Celebrate from the top row and Gateau and Noir from the bottom row.

Sleek have some of the creamiest, most pigmented and blendable shadows out there and I can tell this is going to be a pleasure to use, just by swatching on my arm, but I'll show you some looks next week with it.

Sleek's Oh So Special palette is available on or on for €9, so happy shopping!
