Sleek GLO Face & Body Highlighter, Peach Shimmer* £6.49
available online

Ready, set, GLO!

With the imminent arrival of Summer and the prospect of more flesh on display than ever, I definitely find myself reaching for highlighters more and more to illuminate and glisten the face and body with a fresh radiance and sculpted definition. Sleek Makeup's new Glo Face and Body Highlighter is the perfect little package to fulfil all your sun-kissed dreams this season, coming in three different shades to suit all skin tones and moods. 

Peach Shimmer is definitely my favourite upon seeing the other two on offer, purely because I love anything peachy-toned and it suited my skin perfectly. The other two powders, Bronze Baby and Gold Digga, are both a lot darker than Peach Shimmer, and I would probably find myself using them more as a bronzer than highlighter. The powder is lightweight, irritant-free and packed with light reflecting mica pigments that illuminate the skin and provide a long lasting glow.

I have read a few reviews likening Peach Shimmer to Dior Amber Diamond highlighter, but having not tried the latter product, I can't really comment. But for a staggering fraction of the price, it offer a similar series of shades and gorgeous frosty-shimmery finish. The thing I love about these types of highlighters is that you can swirl different sections together each time to achieve completely new colours each time. I particularly love the middle, darker part when contouring, yet use the outer panels when I want to highlight my cheekbones, cupid bow or brow bone. You can also take a large powder brush or kabuki and sweep the powder onto your shoulders and across your collar bone to extend the radiance down and create a pretty, luminous finish for when the weather allows you to bare all. The only criticism I have of this product is its pigmentation, or should I say lack of. You have to work quite hard to build up a noticeable colour, which does work in your favour if you are quite fair and definitely allows you to maintain a natural finish. All in all however, I am very impressed with this new highlighter from Sleek and am certain it will become a seasonal essential.

Have you tried this product? What do you use to give yourself a summertime glow?

Ooh this looks lovely! I tried a highlighting kit of theres about a year ago and hated it because it was so full on. so it looks like this was their happy medium! a bit annoying that it has to be built up, but for a fraction of the price of Amber Diamond, I suppose you can't really o wrong! Have a lovely weekend, Millie! x
