SHINE: Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette

by - 4:56:00 PM


Sleek MakeUP is a well-known brand from U.K., which recently launched here in the Philippines. Sleek has totally raised the bar for both drugstore and high-end makeup brands.


I have heard superb reviews about one of their bestsellers, Solstice Highlighting Palette, so I decided to get one and see what the fuss is aboutSolstice Palette is popular for its high quality pigmentation and excellent color selection. The packaging looks simple yet elegant (did I mention it was gold?), and comes with a mirror. The palette also includes a flat mini brush, but I suggest you apply highlighter with a blender or a fluffy brush to achieve a more iridescent glow. The highlighting palette consists of 4 shades - 3 powders and 1 cream.

Oh, and I haven’t got to the best part yet, it's AFFORDABLE. Sleek Solstice Highlighting Palette retails for only PHP 875.00 (USD 18.00), that is four shades for less than 20 dollars. Crazy, right? If you're convinced, go and get your hands on one. It's available in all Sleek MakeUP stores in selected SM and Ayala department stores. Hopefully, you learned a thing or two about one of my favorite highlighting palettes. Thanks for reading, mermaids! ♥
