Beauty | Highlight and Contour

As I've said a million times over on this blog I'm a highlighter obsessive. I'm always on the lookout for the next best highlighter. We all know whenever we buy a new highlighter a week later there is a newer more sparkly one out that we all need to dust across our cheekbones.

I've recently come across the brand Sleek. I came across their stands in Boots and I can honestly say it's one of my new favourite brands. Everything about the brand is exactly like their name Sleek. 

I'm obsessed with their highlight palette. The design is Sleek and sassy. It comes in a gold mirrored packaging. Inside there is a compact mirror and brush alongside a cream highlight and three powder highlighters. 

I got the palette in the Solstice palette and so this includes the following shades;


The shades include a dusty pink cream highlighter, a yellow tone, a peach and a pink powder highlight. For my skin tone I always find pink shades work better for me.

The powders are so pigmented that you only need to use the smallest amount on your face. I always apply with a small fan brush as I find these help to blend the highlighters in seamlessly and also help you to not overload your face.

These highlighters do give the look of appearing quite wet on the skin. They make the skin look very dewy with a sparkle so if you like the understated look these probably aren't the ones for you.

These palettes are £9.99 at Boots.

I then also picked up their contour kit as I've always struggled to find a decent contour palette. I always prefer to use a powder contour and highlighter as I find they work best with my base make up.

The contour palette is equally as sleek in a matte black palette.

The contour palette contains a contour shade, a highlighter and a blush. I tend to use the contour on the hollows of the cheekbones and the corners of my forehead. I place a small amount of blush on the apples of my cheeks and then use a sweep of the highlight on the days I want a dressed down glam instead of using the highlight palette.

I got the shade medium as I find I use fake tan quite a lot I need quite a dark contour colour. The contour blends so well so well so you don't end up with dark lines all over your face and make it so quick to be able to add definition to your face.

The contour palette is also £9.99 from boots.
