Hey girlies,
as the title suggests, I have spent part of the afternoon playing with the Oh so special palette from Sleek (the rest of the afternoon was spent coming up with a catchy post title ;))
The Oh so special palette is actually the first palette (aside from the primer palette) that I have purchased from Sleek, I have no idea why this is, and I'm pretty sure that I must be the only beauty blogger/MUA in the UK not to own at least the storm palette!
I knew that I wanted the Oh so special palette as soon as I set eyes on it and I do really like it, it has a great mix of matte and shimmery neutrals with a couple of gorgeous matte peach shades also included, which I used for the next look...

Gateaux is my favourite shade from the palette, it's a really pretty duo chromatic soft peachy pink with gold sheen, in the first look I did where I layered noir over it, the gold really shows through and turns to a metallic olive shade when the light hits, I love it!
There are a couple of colours in this particular palette that don't rock my world ie.The mail and boxed which is just personal taste and why I didn't use them today (well actually I did, but hated the look so haven't added it hehe) But aside from that I am looking forward to picking up a few more Sleek palette's soon. 
Which Sleek palette is your favourite?
