If you read me regularly and are following me on my social media then you already know that Sleek MakeUP is now available in Malaysia since earlier this year. Thus, I got a few new Sleek Product [Courtesy of Sleek MakeUP, Malaysia] and been trying them out for quite a while now. This Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette is one of them and, of course, today I want to spread my thought about it among you all.
The packaging of it is GOLD… a big YASS for all gold lover, no? Yet it’s nothing fancy actually except the magnetic closer, which makes it super convenient. The palette contains total 9g of product which I think quite a lot to finish in one life haha. And yes, The brush it comes with is cheap and useless, trash it first if you want the best outcome from this palette.
Mica, Talc, Dimethicone, Ethylhexyl Palmitate, Ozokerite, Magnesium Stearate, Isononyl Isononanoate, Nylon 12, Caprylyl Methicone, Paraffinum Liquidum, Polybutene, Magnesium Aluminium Silicate, Methylparaben, Propylparaben. May Contain +/- Titanium Dioxide (Ci 77891), Red Iron Oxide (Ci 77491), Yellow Iron Oxide (Ci 77492), Black Iron Oxide (Ci 77499), Ferric Ferrocyanide (Ci 77510).
4 shades of Sleek Solstice palette are: [from top left]
- Ecliptic – a dusty pink, sometimes feels an off-champagne shade and a cream highlighter. intensity is buildable and has a very smooth finish.
- Hemisphere – a lilac pink and this one is the most popping shade of this palette.
- Subsolar – a pastel yellow shade. This is a perfect shade for anyone who wants to glow in the dark :p The finish of this one feels a bit more packed and smoother than other two powder shade.
- Equinox – a champagne shade, very must suitable for tan skin like mine but buildable to any opacity.

My Experience with Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette:
First of all, I just love that it has color variation along with 2 different finish. The shade selection so amazing that, literally, everyone with any skin tone will find palette useful. Wear time of these highlighters are great as well. I find the cream shade, Ecliptic, last on my skin until the end. However, I’m not a cream highlight lover so I tend to reach for this shade the least.
Equinox has quickly become my go-to shade because it’s the most suitable one for my tan skin and the most subtle one in finish. Sometimes I mix it with the shade Subsolar or Hemisphere to create variation.
Each of them is fine and smooth in texture, glides/blends easily without leaving any chunkiness. Nonetheless, I wouldn’t compare them with the smoothness of a high-end highlighter. Yet, only the cream shade, Ecliptic, feels and applies better on my skin than Benefit Watt’s Up.
A less dense brush works better with these highlighters because they’re seriously metallic. If you go a tad overboard they’ll be way too much. I love to use my Sigma Strobing Fan brush[F42] or High Cheekbone[F03] to work with powder highlighters here. For the cream one, I prefer my Beauty Blender mini.

Overall, Among all the drugstore highlighters I’ve tried so far this palette turns out to be the best. In fact, I must mention, the highlighter comes with sleek contour kit or face form is nothing even close to this one. I wasn’t sure before trying out this palette why people rave about it so much but now I totally know the fact.
If you’re looking for the best highlighter within a pocket-friendly price then, without any doubt, Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette is the one to grab.
