Review: Sleek Highlighter Palettes

Tuesday, 31 January 2017

For someone who only owned one highlighter a year ago I’m becoming quite a fan of them; they just look so beautiful on the skin and give a lovely glow. The sleek highlighters are brilliant; I can’t quite believe that a palette of four highlighters only costs £9.99 AND there is a great selection of colours. All palettes contain a mixture of cream and powder highlighters and a small flat brush. I don’t really like the brushes included so that’s why I haven’t included them in the pictures. Not to mean they’re bad brushes, I just don’t like them.

Midas Touch

The powder highlighters are the winners for me; they are pigmented, have a lovely shine and blend really well. The creams, I’m not a massive fan of them; a couple do look nice on the skin but the others have a weird texture that puts me off and aren’t that pigmented at all. Some of them were a little bit lumpy and almost had a greasy feel to them. That being said, the powders are definitely worth it for the price.

Cleopatra’s Kiss

The palettes all have mirrors which, if you read my Kylie Cosmetics Kyshadow review, you'll know excites me greatly! I do like the colours they've used for the packaging as well; especially the gold, it looks very chic. However, the palette is lightweight and that feels very cheap and I would worry about this staying in one piece if it fell on my wooden floor from a height. It could happen, I can be very clumsy. But I can't expect much more when the overall quality of the highlighters is good and the price really affordable.

Solstice
Solstice (From Left to Right): Ecliptic (cream), Hemisphere (powder), Subsolar (powder) & Equinox (powder)

My favourite palette is probably the Solstice palette, which is the one everyone went crazy for - and for good reason! There is a varied colour selection but they are all still wearable. Yes, the lavender might be a bit strong for some people to put on their cheekbones, but imagine how pretty that would look on the inner corners of the eyes? A great way to make your eyes pop!

Precious Metals
Precious Metals (From Left to Right): Platinum (cream), Royal Gold (cream), Renaissance Gold (cream) & Antique Bronze (powder)

If you do your make up shopping on a budget then I would encourage you to try these and I'm sure you will not be disappointed. High street/drug store brands are really upping their game when it comes to overall quality of products, which makes it so much easier to do a beautiful make up look on the cheap!
