Sleek 'Solstice' Highlighting Palette

If you're a fan of highlighter, you may have seen the Sleek palettes circling round the internet recently. In fact, after seeing this on Instagram I bought it on my next trip to Superdrug. This is the Solstice highlighting palette and I'm obsessed with it...

First up, the shade range in this palette is ridiculously pretty.. As you can see, there are four shades with one of them being a creamy formula, two baked highlighters and one smooth, silky formula.

Ecliptic is a pale pink cream highlighter which is great for a more natural 'glow from within' look. Sometimes I like to use this as an eyeshadow base or on its own to really make my eyes pop. The second shade, Hemisphere, is a baked mixture of pale pink, lavender and white. It's so beautiful! Next you have Subsolar which is a classic champagne shade and flattering for everyone, it's very smooth and possibly the easiest to work with. Lastly, Equinox is a baked warm rose pink with a pearly finish. This palette can work for all skin tones, but I find that these highlighters are quite light and suit my pale skin more than golden/bronze highlighters or icy, cool toned ones.

Sleek is known to have highly pigmented products at an affordable price, and this palette is no exception. A little goes a long way with every one of these shades. and they are really long lasting. . You can really go to town and create a flash of light, or keep it simple with a natural glow. Sleek recommends using Ecliptic on the brow bone, Hemisphere on along the top of the cheekbones, Subsolar down the bridge of your nose and Equinox on the cupids bow. But honestly, the shades can work anywhere.It's such a fun palette to experiment with and see what works with certain eye looks, lip colours etc.

 To finish, the beautiful rose gold packaging makes this palette every blogger's dream and perfect for pictures.

Overall, I would highly recommend this palette to any highlighter fan out there. If you're not a fan of the shade range, Sleek has three other palettes to choose from like the golden tones of Cleopatra's Kiss, or the icy colours in the Midas Touch palette. But for £10, I think any of the Sleek highlighting palettes are great value for money.

 Have you tried any of the Sleek highlighting palettes?
