Is this the BEST cheap highlighter?¦ Sleek Solstice Highlighter Palette REVIEW!

This Sleek 'Solstice' palette has to be one of the sought after high street highlighter in the UK and US after the likes of Jaclyn Hill, Manny MUA etc have been using this in their You Tube videos.

Here in the UK, 'Sleek', is a brand in Superdrug and Boots which have fantastic colour pay off and of course are significantly cheaper. This decadent gold packaged highlighter is indeed one of my prettier make up products I own, and one in which I purchased for the sake of owning as it is very pretty to look at. That isn't to say the four highlighters in the palette are amazing, I have just become not as obsessed with highlighter as much since I am MUCH oilier than usual and I resemble an oil slick at the end of the day.

However, below are the swatches and they are all very wearable shades despite being slightly frosty. My favourite is the peachier shade on the bottom right and then the lilac shade as it is just a very different and daring shade. What do you think? Have you tried these highlighters out yet?

There is no secret that Mr Tom Ford loves radiant, healthy and glowing skin as all of his products reflect this doctrine. He promises luminosity, that fresh of the catwalk skin and he always delivers.


Following from his best selling illuminating primer, which is a clear primer which oozes hydration and light, he has created a 'shimmer shot'; a tinted liquid bronzer or highlighter for those with deeper complexions. 

I received the bronze shade called 'Lust For Life', which I adore as this is the most natural bronze glow on the skin. I typically will use this on the tops of my cheeks and on days when I am wearing a tinted moisturiser to keep the skin looking fresh and dewy. It is perfect for those of you who prefer natural looking makeup and you can even use this on the eyes as an eye shadow. 

It is a smaller sized bottle but a little of the product goes a long way. There will be another cream shade launching in combination with this shade and will be available to purchase on the 17th October and you can reserve yours at Selfridges.
