Sleek Solstice Highlight pallet- is it worth the hype?!

Yes! The time is here! My honest review on sleek’s highlight pallet in the shade Solstice. 

Now, unless you’ve been living under a rock you would of heard about this pallet. I heard about it from jeffree star on YouTube, then after him, nikkie tutorials.

Of course if my 2 favourite make up artists have been raving about something, it must be good. So that means I must buy it!! 

Oh hello me😂

First off, it comes in a standards sleek box with the shades on the front, nothing special, just sleeks normal packaging. It’s now in my bin so I can’t show you. I was far to excited to get to the magical gold mirror packaging😍 

The gold case makes the product look so classy and expensive when really we’ve only paid £9.99 for it, but no one needs to know that 😉

It looks amazing in your make up collection, just a statement bold gold amazing pretty pallet. 

Now, when you get over how beautiful the case it and actually decide to open it, you will see 4 highlights and a brush. 

It contains 1 cream highlight and 3 powder highlights 

It also has a very nice mirror so you can look at your glowey face all day! 

The sides inside the pallet are 

  • Ecliptic- this is the cream highlight, it is a dark rose pink shade, could almost pass for rose gold. 
  • Hemisphere- this is a beautiful marble pink colour, this looks like a baked highlight, it contains some silver pigment as well as pink.
  • Subsolar- this is a light gold colour, looks more yellow then gold, more like a custard colour. 
  • Equinox- this is a peachy orangey colour, again this looks baked as it has some silver includes with the orange. 

Before I show you the swatches, I want to show you the colours close up and personal, these photos are using the flash so you can see the full effect

  • Ecliptic 
  • Hemisphere
  • Equinox

All of the highlights are very smooth. One swipe and you get alot of pigment. 

So here’s the swatches- 

First I will show them without the flash.

Shades from Left-right 

Equinox, subsolar, hemisphere, ecliptic.

And now with the flash. Swatches are in the same order as before 

I mean come on now…. This was from one swipe, I didn’t have to build the colour up at all! I literally have no faults with this pallet, all of the colours are beautiful, my favourites are hemisphere and Equinox they are absolutely stunning!

I was really worried about receiving this after the nightmare and fail that was the sleek eyeshadow pallet

So all in all, yes, this item is 100% worth the hype!!!

If your wanting to buy it, I would sign up for email notifications with superdrug to find out when it’s back in stock. This little baby sells out within seconds.
