I bought this stun­ning high­lighter off Sleek’s web­site quite a while ago in the shade ‘Peach Shim­mer’. I had been look­ing for a high­lighter and had pur­chased Aus­tralis’ Liq­uid High­lighter which worked really well (review here) but what I really wanted was a pow­der. What prompted me to try this one was actu­ally a Pixi­woo tuto­r­ial. Nic and Sam are so amaz­ing at what they do and I trust their judge­ment over a lot of dif­fer­ent blog­gers so when they rec­om­mended this it was in my bas­ket within a few min­utes! This is basi­cally Sleek’s answer to the Bobbi Brown Shim­mer Brick and while it’s obvi­ously a cheaper prod­uct it still works very well.

I def­i­nitely love this high­lighter and it was worth every penny, but it has it’s down­sides. The colour is fan­tas­tic for warmer skin tones. It’s a gor­geous sheer peach shade so you can layer it over blush for dimen­sion or sweep it over your cheek­bones and high points. How­ever, for high­light­ing pale skin (cough, mine) it can look a lit­tle unnat­ural as the colour is darker than my base. I like that I can pick and choose par­tic­u­lar colours with a small brush for my eyes — the yel­low is amaz­ing as an inner cor­ner high­light — or for pre­ci­sion highlighting.

The tex­ture is a bit chalky at times and it flies every­where if you’re swirling your brush in the pan. Unfor­tu­nately it doesn’t travel too well, I tend to get shim­mer all over my bag and it can break fairly eas­ily. So treat it gen­tly! The shim­mer par­ti­cles are actu­ally quite fine for such an afford­able prod­uct and you can use it lightly for a softer fin­ish or pack it on with­out wor­ry­ing about glit­ter every­where. If you’re in the mar­ket for a high­lighter than doesn’t cost the earth and stars this works won­ders. You can pur­chase it for $8.50 on Sleek’s web­site (Sorry, this is now discontinued!)
