Sleek Glo Peach Shimmer Highlighter

Guest Review by Priya (Light Skin tone, dry to normal skin type)

 

Product Description:                                                                                        

This lightweight bronzer and highlighter adds a flawless, luminous tan to bare skin, and creates a radiant, even coverage when used over foundation or blush. Glo has five shimmering colour bars in each palette, ideal for alternating between shades or creating an eclectic range of looks.

My Views:

Along with Sleek Au Natural Eyeshadow Palette, I also got the Sleek Glo Face and Body Highlighter in Peach Shimmer. There were 3 variants available Peach Shimmer, Bronze Baby and Gold Digga, I decided to go with Peach Shimmer, which I think goes well with Indian Skin tones. The palette is versatile and can easily multi task as highlighter, bronzer, blush and I have even used it as eye shadows. The highlighter comes in a “compressed powder” like packaging – black case packaging which includes 5 thin stripes of colors along with a huge mirror on the other side and it is very convenient to carry around. The Glo Peach Shimmer palette consists of light golden to peach to light bronze color and when used as a blend of 5 colors gives a shimmery light bronze effect to the skin. Since, it is a highlighter it can be used on cheeks, temples, nose bridge or on body but I mostly prefer it using on cheeks and I choose not to use a blush with it. All the colors are really well pigmented and there is no crumbling or fallout & it is easy to pick up these colors with a brush. The formula is easy to work with – applying & blending.

Since it is a highlighter it gives a shimmery finish but it is not OTT and is very subtle on the skin without giving gritty feeling. It gives a radiant dewy glow to the skin. The wear time on my dry skin with properly prepared skin (primer+foundation) was about 5-6 hours which is quite good otherwise it starts to slowly fade away in 2-3 hours.

 

Pros of Sleek Glo Face & Body Highlighter:

  1. Peach based bronzer/highlighter can be used in multiple ways
  2. Well pigmented
  3. Gives shimmery finish which is not gritty
  4. Sturdy packaging with inbuilt mirror
  5. Lasts for good 5-6 hours

Cons of Sleek Glo Face & Body Highlighter:

  1. Not available in India
  2. Sleek online orders dont always reach you
Verdict: A-
Approx:500 Rs plus delivery and custom duty

Recommendation: The Sleek Glo Face and Body Highlighter in Peach Shimmer is a fairly decent product which I think is best suited for warm Indian skin tones.  A single product, with slim packaging & 5 stripes of colors can easily multi task as highlighter, bronzer, blush and eye shadows and is perfect if you are travelling or on the move. The 5 colors are well pigmented and give dewy glow to the skin which looks gorgeous. Highly Recommended!
