Sleek Makeup precious metals highlighting palette review
These days everyone is going crazy about the whole Strobing shebang, which is just highlighting the heck out of your face, and literally glow like a strobe. Sharing Sleek makeup precious metals highlighting palette review, this product will literally take strobing to next level. It is fairly priced, €12.49 for 3 cream highlights and one powder highlight, in my opinion is a great deal. I like gold highlights on my skin tone way more than pinky or frosty champagne shades. But the thing is finding a gold highlight, which is not to dark or not to light is tricky. I haven’t came across any “perfect gold” highlight yet. Either they’re too dark for my skin tone, or too frosty and light. This palette has 2 gold cream highlights.
I don’t think that Sleek precious metals highlighting palette is for everyone. It’s pretty glittery. And I personally can work with a little bit of finely milled glitter, but this is GLITTERY, like to the max. 3 creamy highlights are, Platinum, Royal Gold, Renaissance gold and the powder highlight is, Antique bronze.
Platinum is a very sparkly frosty cool toned highlight. It definitely has a lot of shimmer in it, but it’s finely milled. The cream highlights are literally the softest cream products I have ever touched. It melts like butter, very very VERY creamy. Which mean you definitely need to set it with powder highlight. I see myself using it as inner corner and brow bone highlight. and eyeshadow too, but I don’t think I’ll be using it as a face highlight. It definitely has a little bit of pink reflex in it too.
Royal Gold is a beautiful gold highlight. I love, love, love the color, but it’s glittery/shimmery too. If you put on a light-wash it still looks fine, but you don’t wanna layer it up, the glitter will get very obvious. I think Royal Gold would work great on arms, decollate, or legs. I plan to use it as an eyeshadow base, for the most part. It’s literally the most gorgeous shade of gold. The cream formula feels exactly the same as Estee Lauder Cream Eyeshadows.
This’s the least glittery highlight of the palette, it’s more creamy and velvety rather than glittery. I really really love it. And this will definitely work as a gorgeous gold highlight for me. It’ll intensify any of your powder highlights to the max. Any of these cream highlights would create a great base for your full on in your face type of highlight. Renaissance gold is my favorite in this whole palette. The gold ones look way more golden in reality, than in pictures, and they reflect light beautifully.
Antique bronze literally feels like an eyeshadow. And that’s how I plan to use it. This shade would not work as a highlight for my skin tone, but on deeper skin tones, I can imagine it looking really pretty. But again it has a lot of glitter.
I’m in love with the packaging. It’s very light-weight, but it looks very chic. Magnetic closure, and comes with a little travel brush.
Would I recommend it?
To be completely honest, I’m 50/50 about this product. I love the consistency, I love the variety of colors, the price-point is amazing, the packaging is chic, comes with a little brush, which in this case can work. It’s a great product, the only thing that really really annoys me is the glitter. There’s toooo much glitter in this product. But at the same time, I can still get a lot of use out of this product, for one or the other reason. So I’m not a 100% sure whether I’d recommend this product or not. These’re just my thoughts, but you can decide for yourself. I can totally work with a finely milled glitter, I don’t mind that, but this is a little too much. If you plan to use it, for multiple things, like eyeliner, eyeshadow base, decollete highlight, arm and shoulder highlight, leg shimmer, it would work great. But for face, it’s not for me. The only one that I see myself using as a face highlight is Renaissance Gold.
I hope you find this post helpful.
