This appears to be a novel creation. It is mostly used in the prepositional phrase "on fleek" to describe how a part of someone's appearance looks, especially one’s eyebrows, make-up or hair. Fleek is probably used in the prepositional phrase “on fleek” due to its analogous structure to the phrase "on point," which describes something spot-on or perfectly done. The term is used by those with social media, typically adolescents and young adults.
