The High Street Highlighting ‘IT’ Palette: Sleek Solstice

Beautiful warm gold packaging and four highlighters that will give you some serious glow. The Sleek highlighting palette in Solstice is a must have straight from the high street.

From MAC to Becca, there are so many great highlighters out there, but when you find a great highlighter at high street prices, it certainly gets my attention! Ever since Jaclyn Hill – AKA the queen of highlight – spoke out about this palette in Solstice, I instantly knew I had to purchase this!

Strobing is such a prominent trend this season, a touch on the cheek bone, the cupids bow and the brow bone and you instantly have a radiant glow. The Sleek highlighting palette in Solstice gives you four options to choose from including two baked powders, one luxurious cream formula and one silky shimmer powder, all with metallic finishes.

The Packaging

The packaging is a warm gold metal palette with a clasp closure that feels both luxurious and secure. I find that some high street brands can have quite cheap feeling packaging, but in this case it certainly does not. It also has a large mirror inside, so it is just perfect for on the go.


The first thing I have to mention first is that the pigmentation of all these shades is amazing! No really, they are beautifully opaque and do not have big chunks of glitter in, so you are able to go for a natural glow to a blinding beam with this palette depending on your highlighting preferences! From left to right of the palette we have Ecliptic, which is a rosy cream highlighter, Hemisphere a lilac baked highlight (which is my favourite), Subsolar a milky cream and Equinox, a rose gold baked highlight.

Final Verdict

Overall this Sleek Solstice palette is a must have from the high street! Retailing at just £9.99, for four highlighters it is affordable, pigmented and long lasting. I definitely recommend it! I personally have been enjoying mixing Hemisphere and Equinox together and applying it to my check bones and cupids bow with a fan brush. It is also beautiful to apply just on the high points of your shoulders and along your collar bone for a radiant summer glow.
