Sleek MakeUP - Solstice Highlighting Palette

I was feeling down the other day.. I came home from school and saw this beautiful thing sitting at my doorstep. I was fortunate to receive the Solstice Highlighting Palette by Sleek MakeUP and I'm so keen to review this for you because it has become one of my holy grail products! (I mentioned it in my monthly favourites)

I love Sleek MakeUP and I knew this palette would not disappoint. I opened it and there I see this beautiful, gold packaging. I'll be honest, it felt quite cheep at first because it's really light weight - I suppose that's a good thing? I mean, I don't want to be holding a brick when I apply my highlight. It also comes with a mirror which is handy, plus a brush - let's be real, who actually uses the brushes that come with products? (totally cool if you do, just not my preference)

Any-who, I opened the palette and my jaw dropped. I admired this for a solid three minutes. The palette comes with four high lighting shades, one cream finish, a silky shimmer and two baked powders. The baked powders caught my attention first because I've never owned anything like it. All the powder highlights are highly pigmented as well as the cream finish. 

"Hemisphere" (top right) is a lush baby pink shade that looks perfect on fair skin. It's also perfect for spring! "Equinox" (bottom right) is a beautiful peachy shade with gold reflects. This one is particular has been my favourite because it suits all skin types. "Subsolar" (bottom left) is your classic ivory shimmer. I have been wearing this one every day. It's a little more subtle then the baked powders, although it's blinding in the sunlight - feel a bit like Edward Cullen's. Lastly, "Ecliptic" (top left) I haven't been reaching for this one that much but it's still very loved. It's a pearl-pink shade that is applies as a cream formula and sets in a silky, powder finish. This one is perfect to pair up with any of the powders for a more extreme glow. - cheekbones will be popping. 

Overall, I am very pleased with this palette. It's perfect for all skin tones as you get a nice selection of shades. I highly recommend you check this palette out if you are looking for a new and affordable highlight palette. Let me know if you've tried this! (Target Australia now stocks SleekMakeUP if you did not already know). 

Love Always,
