Sleek Makeup Oh So Special Eyeshadow Palette Review & Swatches

Sleek eyeshadow palette have been my favourite these days and i planned to do 5 looks for both Sleek storm palette and oh so special palette.
If you have read my post about sleek Storm palette you would probably know that i was rooting more for storm palette than the sleek oh so special palette. But i think both palettes are special in their own way though they tend to have similar shades which i will write in detail later.
Before getting in detail about the oh so special palette , read my general thoughts about sleek eyeshadow palettes.

General Thoughts : Sleek Eyeshadow Palette

Sleek Eyeshadows palette makes a great value for money in terms of quality and quantity. Every palettes comes in 12 exciting shades including both matte and shimmery velvet shades.
They are super pigmented and gives a soft velvet finish.
Its is very easy to blend except certain matte shades which can be little hard to work with.
The colors are exact as they look in pan with a smooth texture and they show up well even without any base.
But adding a base under it makes them more vibrant and stays for longer period.
The packaging is sleek, comes with a mirror attached and a double side sponge tip applicator.


A few lighter matte shades are not great to work with.
Every palette has repeated shades like bronze, black, gun metal etc.
Sold only through online(except uk) only.So it might be hard for people who doesnt prefer online shopping.

Sleek Makeup : Oh So Special Eyeshadow palette

Sleek Oh so Special palette carries both neutrals and dark shadows which would be perfect as your travel palette. It has combo of peach pinks, browns, gray, purples, off white and the classic black which makes it as all in one neutral palette to carry. Unlike the storm palette which has 3 matte & 9 shimmery shades, Oh so Special palette has 7 mattes and 5 shimmery velvet shades.

                   Oh So Special Palette has 7 matte and 5 shimmery velvet finish:

The matte shades are :

Bow: is a off white color which is chalky and doesnt shows up well on the lids.
