Review // Sleek MakeUP Solstice Highlighting Palette

If you hadn’t already guessed, I love writing reviews. Purely because I enjoy reading them and I think it definitely helps getting other peoples opinions on a product before you purchase it.

As well as that, I also love Sleek MakeUP too – they’re so affordable and their make-up range is insane, you really don’t expect the quality to be as good as it is for the low price.

The Solstice Highlighting Palette (£10) is one of my favourites and you are essentially getting four highlighters for a 10er! FOUR! That’s £2.50 a highlighter – absolute bargain.

The rose gold, minimal packaging is what initially attracted me to this product as it’s so sleek (pardon the pun) and it just looks good. It’s very prone to fingerprints though so make sure your hands are clean or it gets dirty quickly – as you can see in the reflection lmaooo.

I don’t really like using the brush that comes with the palette, I find the bristles too harsh on my skin but that’s just my opinion. If you can recommend a good highlighting brush please leave a comment as I’m yet to find one! 😦

A little goes a long way with this product – as you can see in the swatches (left – sunlight, right – indoor/artificial light) it’s soooo shimmery but very subtle when it’s on your face!

The first swatch is the shade Ecliptic, which is the only cream highlight in the palette. Not going to lie, I’m not really a fan of cream highlights and I think this one is a bit glittery rather than shimmery.

The next swatch is Hemisphere which is a stunning lilac shade. I first thought ‘who on earth would wear a purple highlight??’ but after I applied it, it creeped up to my top three favourite highlighting shades.

The third swatch is the shade Subsolar. It’s a gorgeous yellow-toned highlight which looks good on pale skin tones as the yellow blends in with your skin. This shade is perfect for highlighting your cupids bow or dabbing some in the centre of your lips over lipstick to accentuate your pouters.

The final shade is Equinox. I think this would look good on darker skin tones as its an orange/peach shade. I haven’t really used this one much but it does look gorgeous, it will probably suit me better when I’ve got a bit of a tan haha.

I love all of the sleek highlighting palettes – the other two are Precious Metals and Midas Touch (£10 each) but Solstice is definitely my favourite right now.

I have linked the products in this post or you can shop the Sleek range by clicking the links on my brand directory page.

Thank you for reading ♥
