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.
I tried each one in the following ways…
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.
The Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette is available in Boots for €14.49, on SleekMakeup.com for €12.49 and it’s available on Cloud10Beauty.com. So affordable and the packaging is devine – what’s not to love?
Who has tried it and what do you think?
