Sleek Eyeshadow Palettes Review




Oh So Special 

Original


A while ago now I won these 2 Sleek Palettes in Kay's East vs West giveaway. I won the West prize. You can check out Kay's blog here.

I had been wanting to try these palettes for AGES because everyone always says how fantastic they are, and they were not wrong. I have the 'Original' and 'Oh So Special' palette. These palettes come with a mixture of shimmery and matte shades, although in the original palette there is only one matte shade, and that is the black in the top left corner.

These eyeshadows are so pigmented! I have not swatched all of the shades, I have just swatched a few to give you an idea of the great pigmentation. If you want a swatches post I will definitely do one so please comment below if this is something you'd like to see.

As you can see from the above picture, even the matte brown is very pigmented, which can be quite rare in the drugstore matte shadows. The shimmery shadows are so vibrant and I love the blue. I will definitely try and work out a way to wear this.
The two shades on the left are called 'Organza' and 'Boxed' from the Oh So Special Palette and the three on the right from the Original Palette don't have names. I don't know whether this is because they were in the stage of updating packaging or what.

These shadows apply like a dream, they are so smooth and there isn't much fallout. I find the matte shades are a little chalky but not too bad, and the shimmery ones I don't have a problem with fallout at all. These palettes retail for somewhere around the £7/£8 mark and you get 12 shadows which is absolutely fantastic. They are such good quality and very inexpensive too. There are lots of other palettes by Sleek and I will definitely be picking up some more of them soon.

Thanks for reading
