Sleek highlighting palette 

Hello everyone, long time no see.

I recently purchased this sleek Highlighting palette.  I have seen this palette everywhere, it’s super affordable and GORGEOUS!   There are a few different types, this one featured is called Solstice.  There are 4 shades, 1 is a cream highlighter and the other 3 are powders.

Top right: Hemisphere.

Bottom Left: Subsolar.

Bottom Right: Equinox.

The packaging is so eye catching, and looks very high end in my opinion.

I paid a total of £9.99 English pounds.  I bought mine off amazon via Amazon Prime.  Easy buying, and a 5 star review.

Product description: solstice instantly enhances the complexion with a radiant glow, the highly pigmented metallic finishes create a gorgeous luminous sheen on the skin. Solstice can be used on cheekbones, the cuspids bow, the inner corner of the eyes, bridge of the nose and can be swept across the décolletage to create a lit from within glow.


Swatches on my skin.  I have very fair skin.

I have used this product every day for a week now, and I am in love. I have used a brush and my fingers to apply the highlight to my cheeks, bridge of my nose and cuspids bow.  The picture above shows the subtle highlight it gives me.  The shade used above was Equinox.  Equinox is my favourite shade in the palette.  The shades are so pigmented and glide across the skin effortlessly.  I have used the brush included in the palette but I found it very stiff and it did not apply the highlights well, however this is a cheaper palette, so it was to be expected.

The cream highlight was perfect for below my brows to just enhance their shape.   I also feel the cream would look lovely if you do not plan to use any powders on your face.

I definitely recommend this product to everyone, it is well worth the money and it gives my skin a natural glow that I have needed, as sometimes my makeup can look too matte, and I always feel something is missing.   I am definitely going to recommend this palette to friends, and I will be repurchasing it when I have used it.  Beautiful.

5 stars from me.
