Hello everyone!

I hope you’re all having a great weekend. For those of you that follow me on Snapchat (duffyloikes) you might have noticed I got my hands on the Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette (Eeek!)

I think it’s safe to say a lot of people have been obsessing over this palette so I have been dying to try it out. My sister Alex was kind enough to pick it up last weekend for me as a treat for finishing the first part of my thesis – best sister ever!

Sleek describe it as a versatile face and body highlighting palette designed to suit all skin tones. I’ve been testing out the palette all week and the results are in….

Solstice Highlighting Palette Features

Ecliptic – Cream highlighter

Hemisphere – Baked powder highlighter

Subsolar – Silky shimmer powder highlighter

Equinox – Baked powder highlighter


Firstly, the packaging of the Sleek Solstice palette is stunning for a budget brand. It has a beautiful warm gold metallic case with magnetic closure! Love it!

It only gets better when you click it open. A big mirror, and four eye-catching highlighting products to play around with. The colours are absolutely gorgeous together.

Solstice contains four different highlighters: Ecliptic, which is a shimmery, rose beige cream highlighter; Hemisphere, a baked highlighter in lilac with a frosty finish; Equinox, another baked highlighter which is peachy but with a neutral toned shimmer; and Subsolar, a finely milled, ultra soft powder highlighter in pastel yellow, containing a small amount of glitter.

You can use each of these wherever you like, because the palette is really versatile and the effect you get from the different highlighters are similar.

I tried each one in the following ways…

– Hemisphere, the lilac baked highlighter which has the strongest highlighting effect because of its colour,  on my cheekbones and in the inner eyecorners.
– Equinox, the peachy baked highlighter, on the brow bone.
– Subsular, the pastel yellow glittery highlighter that has the most “neutral” colour when applied to the skin, along the bridge of the nose.
– Ecliptic, the cream highlighter, dabbed on my cupid’s bow (top of lip).

The textures are gorgeous – the cream has a very luxurious feel and the powders are silky, smooth and well pigmented. Overall, am loving this palette – the quality is great, the shades are perfect for strobing and the price is on point.
