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!)
