Worth the Hype Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette

This stuff is hyped. The ultimate drugstore highlighter. But is it any good? Let’s review the Sleek Solstice Highlighter Palette, £9.99, and find out… Worth the Hype?

Sleek Highlighter

What Is It?

Highlighting palette from UK cosmetics brand Sleek Makeup. One cream, three powders – two baked, one pressed.

The Good:

  • The Cream One (top left) – pretty worn alone or as a base for the powders.
  • The Orange One (bottom right) – glowy, gorgeous, blends beautifully.
  • Variety – lots of looks in one little palette.
  • Wear time – longer lasting than most affordable highlighters.

The Less Good:

  • The Yellow One (bottom left) – a little choppy, hard to blend.
  • The Purple One (top right) – pigmented and blendable but on the glittery side.
  • Texture – all the powders feel a little chunky.

If you want the blinding Instagram, almost wet-looking lilac cheekbone, this palette will get you there. Layer the cream and the purple shade, bam.

If you want a subtle, lit from within glow, this palette will get you there. Use the orange shade and a light hand.

It’s not luxe. The powder formula isn’t soft or finely milled. But it’s so versatile. And so much fun.

Til next time,
