Sleek ‘Solstice’ Highlighting Palette – Review, Swatches, and Look

I absolutely bought into the hype with this one.  As in, I walked into Ulta, found the Sleek display, and bought the most hyped up product from the brand because I just had to try it.

I remember about 2 years ago seeing Jaclyn Hill talk about how she would mix one of the powders from the ‘Solstice’ palette with her BECCA ‘Champagne Pop’ for the most intense highlight that Snapchat had ever seen.  It had been on the shopping list in the back of my brain ever since.  And since Sleek had some awesome gift sets for the holidays that included the palette, I thought “the time is now!”.

The palette contains 3 highlighting powders, and one highlighting cream.

The 4 pans contain a combined 9 g of product, compared to your standard BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector, which contains 7 g of product.

One thing that I REALLY appreciate is the warning on the back that stated that this product is not eye safe.  A lot of people will use bronzers and blushes as eyeshadows and it always makes me cringe because usually the product shouldn’t go anywhere near the eyes.  I appreciate that safety is a priority to Sleek.

When I say that this might be the best drugstore highlighter out there, I’m not joking with you.  The intensity of the powders was insane – it rivaled BECCA, it rivaled Burberry (review HERE), and it rivaled Cover FX (review HERE)

If I were to be picky about the product, my one issue would be that once blended the shades tend to have the same metallic sheen to it, and you don’t really see the purple, yellow, rose gold, or tan pigmentation come through that you see in the palette.  So color-wise they all sort of look the same when blended out.  But it’s a bangin’ highlighter, so even if all 4 shades look the same, that means I have one big awesome highlight available to me.

I’m usually not one to tell you go stop what you’re doing and go buy a product, but if you want one of those “blinding” highlights, and you don’t want to break the bank (I believe this palette is usually $15 USD) get yourself to an ULTA….ASAP!
