Small review on The Sleek Highlighting Palette.

Hey guys,

So I recently bought the 'SOLSTICE' palette from Sleek, and I thought I would write a little review, maybe even throw in some swatches for you.

So I saw this floating around some blogs and decided I should give it a try. From what I saw, I couldn't be disappointed. The palette is £9.99 from the drugstore, I got mine from boots. I did want it quite a while ago, but they had sold out until now. I guess I'm not the only one who's curious.

This palette comes in a reflective gold casing. This looks amazing and I'm sure the future me will love getting photos for this post. However it is only plastic which is disappointing. I just would've preferred some sort of metal or something. The look of the palette makes it look more 'high end' in my opinion but the feel doesn't.

The product also comes with a tiny brush, which I also don't love. It's okay to apply the product but it is scratchy and personally I wouldn't use this sort of shape to apply the product. I guess it does the job but they could include a slightly better brush.

The actual product has four shades, Ecliptic (which is the only cream highlight), Hemisphere, Subsolar, and Equinox. I love the names, like I adore them. And I must say, they are really pigmented. They really catch the light and do their job haha. Although I do think, up close, they just look like glitter on the skin. If you're into that, great! Personally, I don't mind it, but do take it into consideration.

The cream highlighter is amazing. It doesn't 'reflect' as much as the powders but it blends extremely well into the skin. This is great under one of the others, any really, they all work together. I use the shade 'Subsolar' most as it works well in the corner of my eyes. However I haven't really tried them all in the different ways yet.

I do recommend this palette. It is stunning and for only £9.99, it's worth it. I guess it may work for some and not others, but you should try it. They also have another version (I can't remember the name) which are based more on browns which may suit other people. But definitely try this out - its SO PRETTY!

I love you all and I hope you have a smashing week. I will be back on Thursday with another Beauties on Fire post.

Adios amigos!xo
