Product Review : Sleek Makeup’s Highlighting Palette in Solstice
I think we can all agree that the beauty world has gone crazy over highlighters. Each brand drugstore or high end, have came up with their versions of highlighters to keep up with the trend. It has undeniably become a must have for the ladies yet there are still a bunch of us who have not embraced the highlighted world. Some of us know what it is or have heard about it but chooses not to add another step in our daily makeup routine. Let me tell you something, highlighting for me, is the easiest, quickest and most wearable makeup that makes an incredible difference. A little touch of highlight can brighten up your entire face.

Why did I buy it?
I was at Sleek Makeup stall at Landmark to check out their Matte Me lipsticks that everyone was raving about. Carmina, the Sales Associate was telling me about the shades of the lipsticks when I noticed this palette. It was love at first site! Call me impulsive but it was too pretty to ignore. I knew I just had to buy it or I’m gonna regret not buying it.
The stunning gold metallic packaging has the words fancy and gorgeous written all over it. Looking at it makes me feel like a Queen or a Goddess perhaps.
I absolutely love the magnetic closure and the decent sized mirror that comes with it! Such an eye candy in and out!
There are 4 shades in the palette:
* Ecliptic – Rosy Beige cream based highlighter
* Hemisphere – Lilac baked powder with a frosty finish
* Subsolar – soft, silky and shimmer powder highlighter in pastel yellow
* Equinox – peachy baked powder highlighter eith a neutral toned shimmer
Equinox is said to be a duper for Becca’s Champagne Pop. It does remind me of Becca’s only waaay cheaper.
Here are pictures of my friend and I wearing the highlighters.
It comes with a brush that is a bit crappy and hard to work with (like most palettes have). You can use your fave highlighter brush for application. I prefer to use my fingers in applying this highlighter because I feel that the product stays longer and shows more pigmentation if I do that (that’s just my opinion).
Application / Experience :
It is so easy to apply and they are super pigmented.
The pigments just hug your skin so glamorously and pulls that attention from everyone you bump into.
Didn’t notice any fall offs.
I spent weeks testing them out – one shade a day and combination of the shades. I love them all but Equinox is just a little bit special for me. Its versatility amazes me. I can use it on my cheekbones, cupid bows, brow bones, it can work pretty much everywhere!
It’s amazing how you can get such lovely highlighters in one palette at P875. Fabulous deal!
P875 might not be within everyone’s budget but if you do have that amount for highlighters, I strongly recommend you get this baby! If you think about it, each shade costs less than 220 pesos and the quality of this palette can be compared to high end and other more luxurious brands.
I love the packaging! I think it’s just completely breathtaking. It’s one of the bests, if not the best packaging I’ve ever seen.
Love the shade selection. Plus, they are buildable and perfect for day and night looks!
I am so happy I bought this highlighting palette. I think it’s just stunning and exceeds my expectations on highlighters big time!
