Okay. So I’m doing another blog post on a product from Sleek Makeup again. I did one on their Matte Me liquid lipsticks yesterday (click), and today, I’m doing one on their Solstice Highlighter Palette.
This palette comes with 3 powder highlighters (Hemisphere, Subsolar, and Equinox), and 1 cream highlighter (Ecliptic) housed in a shiny gold case with a decently sized mirror and a tiny little highlighter brush. Just like their liquid lipsticks, the price point of this palette isn’t bad. It’s actually pretty cheap, considering that it’s not a local, Philippine-made brand.
In the pan, these highlighters already look gorgeous. Just by eyeballing them, you can already tell that these babies will give such a fierce highlight to your face.
Swatched lightly on the back of my hand, this is what they look like:
Hemisphere has a pinky-purple sheen to it, while Equinox is a much more golden highlight similar to Becca’s Prosecco Pop, but a little more metallic. Subsolar is a silvery highlight. Ecliptic is the more subdued highlight among all four, being a bronzy pink.
I’d say that this palette gives you a variety of highlights you can use for different occasions. I’d wear Hemisphere on a night out. Subsolar you can even use as an inner corner highlight for your eyes. I’d say Equinox and Ecliptic are the more wearable, everyday highlights in this palette. All of them, though, look fantastic, and are all buildable to achieve the look and the pop you want.
Verdict: 10/10 for the price point, variety, and versatility
