There's a new highlighter in town, of course I'm talking about the much raved about Sleek Highlighting Palette... released in a brand new, beautiful shade called Cleopatra's Kiss. The Sleek Highlighting Palettes, with their Solstice shade in particular has caused quite a stir amongst the blogging community especially with US YouTube gurus such as Jaclyn Hill & Nikkie Tutorials, who adore the palette. I held off picking up any of the previous shades, as I felt like they either wouldn't work for my skin tone or I already had a similar option in my collection. However when I spotted the new Cleopatra's Kiss release, I instantly fell in love and knew I wanted to get my hands on it. The packaging is compact & lightweight, the price is affordable, the quality is fantastic and the highlight is intense.
I actually haven't tried a whole lot of Sleek products before, even though I know they have been a favourite budget brand amongst bloggers for some time now. They seem to be steadily releasing new products that always get huge thumbs up. From what I've seen through reviews or my research online the company aim to be innovative, whilst offering high quality makeup with strong pigmentation. At the moment they have actually just released two stunning new shades in their Lip VIP Lipstick range and I am itching to get my hands on them, as the shades look perfect for the winter season ahead.
Anyway back to the review... the palette is encased in a mirrored gold case and it comes with a mini brush, which isn't great quality to be honest so I kinda wish it just came without it. Inside you will find four different shades, made up of two baked powders and two creams. The creams are perfect for a luminous glow with a more subtle highlighting effect, whilst the powders create a super metallic finish to skin. Overall Cleopatra's Kiss is a gorgeous bronze-hued palette and it's ideal for this time of year in my opinion. The four different shades compliment each other well and can be worn o their own or layered up for a super intense highlight...
- Sphinx - a bronzed gold shade powder.
- Delta - a cream bronzed golden shade with micro bronze particles throughout.
- Dynasty - a pale gold cream bronzer with golden shimmer.
- Goddess - a light champagne powder.
When I noticed that Superdrug had a fab 2 for £12 deal on all Sleek products, I quickly picked up the last two palettes in store. One for me and another for a cheeky Instagram giveaway (head over to my account here if you'd like to enter... it's super simple I promise). In the meantime I'd love to hear your thoughts on this new highlighting palette? Have you tried Sleek Makeup before?
