Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette | Swatches & First Impressions

Hey everyone

Hope you’re all enjoying your Bank Holiday weekend!

Today’s post is about this beautiful highlighting palette that I’m sure you have seen everyone in the beauty blogging world rave about. I got my hands on it a few weeks ago and I must say, it’s pretty impressive.

First of all, I am loving the packaging of this palette! The sleek golden packaging makes this product look so luxurious without breaking the bank! Because this palette is so compact, it is great to take with you when you go travelling. This will be the only highlighting palette you’ll need!

 This palette comes with 4 highlighting shades and a brush which I will probably never use. I always use a fan brush these days for my highlighter. But I guess the only times that I will be using the brush is if I take this travelling with me. This palette also has a soft magnetic closure so it makes it super easy to open and close without any fuss.

All shades are of a powder texture except one shade, Ecliptic, on the top left corner. This shade has a cream texture. Not quite sure why there is only one cream shade and the rest are powder, seems a bit random. Although you can probably use the cream shade as a base and use one of the other colours on top of it to give it an extra intense highlight. Let’s not forget that these shades can also be used as eyeshadows. The shade named Subsolar would be great for the inner corners and brow bone highlight.

Below are the swatches. I am VERY impressed with the pigmentation of these!

All of the shades are so pigmented and makes the perfect highlight because of their intensity. The shades are very blendable and buildable to. This photo is taken with no flash and even so you can see their beautiful pigmentation. With the ever growing beauty world of the highlighting trend, Sleek has really stepped up their game with this one.

You can purchase this palette from any Superdrug or Boots store for just £9.99. Yes, thats right. A small price tag for four pigmented highlighters!

If you’re not living in the UK, you can purchase Sleek products from their website that ships worldwide.

If you were thinking of trying out this product, I would definitely say you should go out and get it. It is so worth it and I would recommend this product!
