Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette
As soon as I saw a picture of Sleek’s latest addition; the Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette, I just knew I needed it in my life. Eagerly awaiting it’s arrival in store, as soon as I heard it had hit Boots, I headed straight there and managed to bag one of the last ones on the shelf. As a girl who is completely obsessed with highlighters (my highlighter collection has a makeup bag of it’s own…), I fell in love with the gorgeous shimmery shades in the Solstice palette almost instantly and I couldn’t wait to get it home to try it out for myself.
I’m a huge fan of Sleek products with the Sleek Contour Kit being one of my all time favourite makeup staples. If you’re a fan of contouring and you haven’t tried this kit then you are seriously missing out! If you’re looking for a non-glittery champagne highlighter then the one that comes in the Contour Kit is a good shout but other than that I’d never actually tried any of Sleek’s other highlighting products, that was until the Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette entered my life.
The gold lightweight palette contains four oh-so-pretty shades – Ecliptic; a rose gold shade with a cream texture, Hemisphere; a pinky lilac baked powder, Subsolar; a very light yellow silky shimmer powder and Equinox; a metallic bronze baked powder with each highlighter having a gorgeously smooth texture and luxuriously shimmering finish, perfect for adding radiance to your skin.
What’s so great about this palette aside from the cheap £9.99 price tag for something that’s comparable to those pricey high end alternatives, is the shade range. Unlike some palettes you buy, whether that be eyeshadow or blushers, it’s not often that you find all the shades to be totally wearable. Yes, they’ll always be some that you reach for more than others and in this case it would have to be Ecliptic and Equinox but to be totally honest, I like them all and there isn’t one shade that I can’t see anybody not wanting to wear. What’s also great is that the shade range means there’s more likely to be a highlighter to suit your complexion.
The shades are all super pigmented too meaning you don’t need to use much product for a good ol’ shimmer and they’re also so easy to work with. I find using my fingers works the best for the cream highlighter Ecliptic whereas a brush such as the Real Techniques Setting Brush works well for the other three powder highlighters or you can always use the little brush that comes with the Solstice palette.
Overall, I’m impressed. There’s definitely way more to the palette than its pretty appearance and I think anyone who loves achieving a gorgeous radiant glow or healthy sheen without breaking the bank should try this one out. Plus, it’s the perfect palette for the current strobing trend! Buy the Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette here.
