Sleek Solstice Highlighter Palette Review

It is not a secret that I am obsessed with highlighters. I own pretty much every single one that is on the market and if I don’t have it, you best believe that I have tried it and it was bad enough for me to return. This is why, when Sleek started to ship to the US and came out with a new highlighting palette called Cleo’s Kiss, I placed an order for both the new quad and the original in Solstice.

OH MY GOODNESS GRACIOUS! How come no one ever truly described how beautiful these highlighters are? I have definitely heard bloggers and Youtubers talk about it, they all have said that it is nice, but never had anyone said how unbelievably amazing these highlighters are!

Both Cleo’s Kiss and Solstice come packaged in a gold plastic container with the word “Sleek” written on the top lid. The quad contains 9g/0.32oz of product and retails for about $20 dollars on both Amazon and the Sleek UK website. There are four pans inside, each containing a different color. Cleo’s kiss has two cream colors and two powders and Solstice has one cream color and three powders. I didn’t find Cleo’s kiss to be interesting enough for me as it is a bit of a darker color scheme, but Solstice… Let’s talk about my new baby.

The first color in the palette is a cream bronzy shade. I have used it as an eyeshadow, just for quick a light wash of color all over the lid. It isn’t really anything special, but nice if you are in a hurry and don’t want to leave the lid empty. The second color is a powder highlight that gives off a purple hue. I don’t particularly find purple highlighters useful, but I have applied it when I did a monotone purple look. The third is a yellow powder, and the fourth is a peachy gold one. Just looking at the pans, you would not think that the colors are anything special, but when you apply them…OMG! They go on smoothly and look as if you have been kissed by the angels and they have left their heavenly glow on your cheeks. The glow looks wet without having to actually wet the product.

The powder doesn’t emphasize any texture or pores or anything that you wouldn’t want emphasized. All three powders are great colors but the last two are truly amazing. I usually mix both the yellow and the peach for that perfect glow and I am amazed every time I put it on. Solstice highlighters are so good that they trump my Estee Lauder x Victoria Beckham Modern Mercury one and that is sang A LOT, because I love my Modern Mercury. I have been asked what I am wearing and given a compliment every single time I bathe in this highlighter. EVERY SINGLE TIME!

I highly recommend the Sleek Solstice highlighting palette. It truly is a great product and the price is definitely right! The Cleo’s Kiss palette would look amazing on girls, and boys, who have a darker skin tone than mine. Y’all definitely need to try these products out because they are truly amazing. J
