Hey beauty lovers,
In this post I would like to review the Solstice Highlighting Palette by Sleek. I have owned this palette for a while now, but recently quite a few of you had requested me to share my thoughts on it. Here it is, enjoy!
I purchased this Solstice Palette at Superdrug, it cost me £9.99 which is an amazing price considering the fact that you get four different highlight shades! It includes two baked powders, one cream formula and one silky shimmer powder.
The packaging is gold and has a shiny with a reflective surface. It was rather hard to photograph it without my face in its reflection haha.
It also comes with a small brush, however, I have never used it before. I much prefer to use my small fan brush for this duty.
Below you will see the names, descriptions & swatches of each highlighter.
(Close shots of fingers are so weird.)
First from the top. This one is the cream highlighter and it has a nude tone to it. I must warn you that it’s very “in your face” if you put too much on as the formula is very thick. I still haven’t used this shade before and I have no clue where to put it on my face? It’s such a high pigmented highlighter! Any suggestions would be great.
Second from the top. This is the first baked powder in the palette, it is a pink & shimmery shade. Whenever I choose to use the Solstice palette and I apply this shade on both of my cheek bones. Still, it is so pigmented and very easy to over apply! Stay focused while doing it.
Second last on the swatches and the second baked powder here. It is very yellow toned, actually if it was matte instead of shimmery then it would be such a good dupe for ABH Banana Highlighter. I tend to apply this on the bridge of my nose for now.
Last but not least, this one is the silky shimmer powder! It is of a peach shade and is most glittery. Once again, I have not really used this shade before, any ideas of where it would look best?
This is what the colours look like in shade.
And here you can see how shimmery they all are in the sunlight. Gorgeous.
To be honest, I feel that they would all look beautiful as eye shadows? Do you agree? They would really drag attention to your eyes.
If you are considering to buy this palette, I recommend doing so at Superdrug as it seems to have the best price for it. If you have their Health&Beauty card like I do, you also get free delivery on all orders! Click here for the product.
Overall, I think that this palette is one of the better drugstore ones that are available to us. It has a fair price, four different shades with three different formulas and the packaging is so pretty! However, for now I will still stick to my M.A.C highlighter which I wrote about here.
What do you think of Sleek as a brand and do you own this highlighting palette?
Bye for now.
