I have been thinking about this for weeks, and now that I have it, I haven’t used any other highlight since. (I’m so sorry, Banila Co.’s So Strobing Stick. But I just prefer powder formulations, ya know?) I was thinking of getting Cleopatra’s Kiss since reviews say it’s better suited for medium skin with warm undertones, but I said fuck it, I want the palette with the gorgeous lilac highlighter!
The packaging is a really pretty metallic gold. I’m used to Sleek’s packaging in plain black, so this was a pleasant surprise.
This contains 1 cream (Ecliptic) and 3 powder highlighters, 2 of which are baked (Hemisphere and Subsolar) and 1 described as a shimmer (Equinox). None of them are overly glittery; in fact, they provide a wet-looking shimmer to the tops of the cheekbones, which is my favorite place to apply highlighter.
The only qualm I have with this is that it doesn’t last as long as I would like on my oily skin – like, 4 hours, tops, if I set it properly. I bring this along for touch-ups, which is annoying because it means I also have to bring my highlighter brush (I do not like the brush that comes with it in the packaging). Also, it’s a bit bulky to include in my makeup kit.
Overall, I’d be more than happy to repurchase these again for the absolutely stunning shades!
