Can we just take a moment to appreciate the packaging? How beautiful is the gold packaging. Although before photographing this palette I did spend 10minutes polishing off the fingerprints. But that aside it is just stunning. I've been hearing people rave and rave about this highlighting palette. To be honest when I first saw it in store the highlight shades didn't jump out to me. But after seeing the swatches, this palette had to be part of my ever growing highlight collection!
This gold palette houses 4 beautiful highlight shades, a large mirror and a brush. 3 of the hightlights are powder and one is a cream formula.
- Ecliptic - is a cream formula. This is a golden pinky colour that is so buttery soft and blends out easily to a smooth glowing look to the skin.
- Subsolar - My favourite of the 4. This gives a beautiful silver shimmer to the cheeks. It smoothes easily to blend formular. This gives my current favourite Mary Lou Manizer a run for its money!
- Hemisphere - This a pale lilac colour in the pan but gives a lovely slivery sheen to the cheek bones.
- Equinox - A beautiful golden highlight (although it looks more peach in the pan).
Overall, all the highlighters in this palette are beautiful, easy to blend and gives a smooth, even finish. This palette in particular would be great for paler skin tones. And for just a little under a tenner a brilliant drugstore palette!
Sleek Solstice palette is available from Boots.
