Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette

 When I seen Jaclyn Hill post this on her snapchat I went out the next day and bought it. Even though I would buy most things that she talks about, this just looked amazing. In her snapchat you could see how intense this highlighter was instantly and I knew I needed it in my life. After I found out it was from Sleek - one of the most affordable but high quality brands ever - I had to get it. There was actually only one left when I got to a Sleek stand so there must have been a big demand on it after Jaclyn posted about it. 

 There are three powders and one cream in this quad and they are all of different shades. There is a champagne cream and then a pink, gold and yellow powder. So there should be something to suit different looks and some different skintones. If you are very dark then this definitely would not be for you. It is so highly pigmented that it would show up too pale on your skintone. But if you are of the fairer complexion, you need this in your life! You barely need to touch your brush on the product to get some on it. I would advise to start off lighter on this and build up gradually because if you go in too heavy with it straight away it will be a little too in your face. 

The powders are amazing quality for the price. They don't come across as overly glittery on the skin - instead just giving a very intense sheen to the skin. Once you have your product on your brush, be sure to tap off the excess because the powders can be slightly chalky and to avoid the caked look. As you can see from the swatches they are incredibly intense and a little bit goes a long way. They do last very well throughout the day and remain as vivid as when you first apply them.

 It is called an "eye palette" by Sleek but I have been using this as a face highlighter and I really like how it has been looking. It is available at Sleek counters or online here for €14.49!
