Oh So Special

Is the newest addition to the fleet of Sleek Eye shadow palettes. Yes it will be a permanent addition if I am correct, so rest assured you shall not be disappointed with the out-of-stock drama.




To me, this has the best of all the shades from Sleek's most popular collections, of course with a few new shades. It is more or less a neutral-daytime palette, so I won't stay away from saying that it can be a potential dupe for Urban Decay's Naked. 

You can definitely travel with solely this palette and you shall not need to look any further for your eye shadow needs. 

What I particularly like about it is how you can mix and match some shades or layer them to create some gorgeous colours. Meaning you are not stuck merely with the shades in the palette if you utilize some of your creativity. 





Besides that, what makes this palette 'Oh So Special' in my opinion is the number of potential MAC dupes that I could spot in this namely All that Glitters, Bamboo, Knight Divine, Beauty Marked, Soft Brown et al.

The quality of the eye shadows is pretty good actually, besides a few exceptions like the white and baby pink. I see a lot of Veluxe Pearl and Satin Finishes in here my MAC geeks.




On the whole, I think there is something for everyone in the palette and you cannot really go wrong for £6.50.

This is a press sample but you know I would have bought it anyways seeing my obsession for Sleek on the blog! According to the Press Release, the palette should be available immediately in Superdrug, so keep your eyes peeled if your interested.

EOTD is on its way ;)

Woww it looks great!! Thanks for the swatches <3

Tugba said...

I might try this one too :) as it looks very good for everyday use :D

Replica said...

They had the two new palette testers out at Superdrug and I really wanted to get this one and the natural one but I asked someone who works there and she said the company only gave them testers and it would be weeks before they got the stock in, seemed somewhat odd to me?

Get Gawjus! said...

@Replica - Oh! That does sound odd. I will inquire and let you guys know about it's availability.

This is such a beautiful palette - would love to purchase it, but I barely wear eye-shadows and when I do, I suppose I ought to use my Naked palette a bit more. I think I will pick it up though, hopefully a birthday or something will come up soon, and a friend of mine will be receiving this :o) x

I would love to get this, I think I'd probably use it more than my Storm Sleek palette!

graphology said...

I have this palette and I love it, the colours are gorgeous :-)

Get Gawjus! said...

@BlushCrush - I agree that it cannot beat Urban Decay's Naked but true, it would make a cute present :)

@Kat - Am not a bit fan of the Storm too! The colours are not that wearable during the day.

Thanks for commenting on my blog:) The Hub just picked one up, but he had to ask, was still in the draw waiting to go out. Lots of people on twitter have seen them out so it seems to vary amoungst branches. xx

MakeupbyThess said...

looks like a nice palette! I would have like to see more bronze colours though. But I guess eventually that will come too in a new palette =)

Get Gawjus! said...

@MakeupbyThess - Agreed! The pinks could have be substituted by bronze.

Meeta said...

I like the look of this one, some really great basic shades.

Michelle (LipstickRules) said...

I need this! LOL. Swap time? ;)

I'm actually really loving all the colors, especially in the first two columns. Very pretty and natural, perfect for everyday or daytime looks.
