Sleek Makeup | Au Naturel Eyeshadow & Solstice Highlighting Palette

I've been eyeing up this brand for such a long time and wanted to test out some of their products but I had no idea which products I wanted to try out. At the same time I was looking for a good highlighter palette as I haven't really got one and I liked the sleek ones while trying out the testers. There was a deal on at the time so I also splurged and bought an eye shadow palette too, nothing wrong with a good ol' natural eye shadow palette. Spoiler alert, these are like my favourite make up buys ever.


I spent ages in the shop comparing which palette I wanted to get because there's a lot of choice, which is great. Most of them were really similar though which kind of confused me. I knew I wanted a pure highlighting palette though because I suck at proper contour and it makes me look silly. I decided on a neutral eye shadow palette to go along with this, it seemed fitting to bring out my natural glow.


(Swatches are Ecliptic, Hemisphere, Subsolar and Equinox.) 

Starting with my main purchase, I got the Sleek highlighting palette in Solstice, such a pretty name too. When I bought this I didn't know it came in a gold packaging so when I took it out for the first time it's safe to say that I fangirled over how pretty it was. Seriously though, the packaging and product look so beautiful, you can tell I'm obsessed. The shade that made me fall in love with this palette was the pale pink toned shade Hemisphere, which is for your cheekbones. The first shade, Ecliptic is the only creamy shade and is for your browbone and I also use it on the inner corners of my eyes. The third shade Subsolar and last shade Equinox, are for the bridge of your nose and cupids bow. 
   I love every shade in this palette and it covers every area in your face with each different shade which I love, I also love how they are named after the solar system. It makes your face glow and sparkle and who doesn't want that? It helps me feel like a princess, yes this post is getting weird now.


My second purchase was the i-Devine Au Naturel palette. These are mineral based eye shadows and I find them super super easy to blend and apply. They're very pigmented but subtle at the same time, if that can be said. I find that I normally only apply one eye shadow from this palette onto my eye and it gives me a super nice look. Half of the palette is very subtle colours and the other half are darker which is a nice mix, especially for everyday looks. 

(Swatches are the colours in the top row of the palette, in order Nougat, Nubuck, Cappuccino, Honeycomb, Toast and Taupe.)

The top row of colours as you can tell my the pictures are very opaque and very subtle, also very hard to get a photo of. They're all prefect for bases or a natural make up look. They're mostly matte colours which I love right now. Taupe is the only shimmer colour in the top row and is probably my most used one from there along with Cappuccino, if I want a more natural look. 

(Swatches in this photo are of the second row in the palette, in order Noir, Regal, Mineral Earth, Bark, Moss and Conker.)

The bottom row of the palette is my favourite. They're half shimmer half matte, it's a good mix. I love how they blend on my eyes, especially the shade Regal, which I sometimes use on its own all over my eyelid. My favourite shades in the bottom row are Conker, a red-y brown shimmer, always a must have and another brown shimmer Mineral Earth. They're both just really pretty.

The only con to this palette is how un-pigmented the top row of it is, it doesn't make much of a difference on your eyelids but I still love the palette otherwise. The Au Naturel Eye shadow palette and Solstice highlighter palette go so well together and I'd highly recommend them!
