The Sleek Solstice Highlight palette has been on my wishlist for a long time, it’s one of those items that I’ve seen on many instagram posts and it’s all with good reason. It’s a beautifully packaged palette which contains four stunning highlights, with a price of just £9.99 who could resist? I thought I would give you my thoughts on the palette and whether it deserves the hype which surrounds it.
Firstly I want to start with the packaging, for a drugstore product Sleek have got this packaging bang on the money. The palette is made of a gold-like mirrored material which is fairly sturdy. It’s a very travel friendly size, and overall feels very luxurious.
The palette contains four highlights; two baked powders, one luxurious cream and one silky shimmer powder. Sleek says that the iridescent metallic finishes add a radiant glow and a luminous polish to the skin.
L – R, Ecliptic, Hemisphere, Subsolar, Equinox.
Ecliptic is the cream highlight from the palette. It has a very silky texture which blends well into the skin without looking cakey. As you can see from the swatch, it is a very pigmented cream.
Subsolar is the shimmer powder highlight, which is very pearlescent in tone. It has a fine shimmer so it doesn’t look too intense on the skin, but it is buildable.
Hemisphere is probably my favourite shade from the palette, it is a lilac toned baked powder which has great pigmentation. It has a lovely texture which is easy to work with.
Equinox has a similar to finish to Subsolar, but is more of a traditional champagne toned highlight. Again it is very pigmented and looks beautiful on the skin.
The Sleek Solstice palette is so different to the other highlights I own, as it has such a wide range. I love the fact that Sleek have included a cream highlight, and for once a cream drugstore highlight which sits nicely on the skin. I also really like the addition of the lilac toned highlight Hemisphere. I think the shades work well together, and they are the most highly pigmentation highlights I have tried from the drugstore. I am astonished, but I literally have no criticisms of this palette – I strongly urge you to go and swatch it instore if you haven’t already.
So in summary, The Sleek Solstice Highlight Palette is 100% worth the hype!
