Sleek Glo Highlighter: Peach Shimmer Swatch/Review

Friday, April 6, 2012

In addition to the well-received Blush by 3, Sleek has also launched their Glo Face and Body Highlighter, which also looks set to be popular this summer. Unlike the Sleek Blush by 3, which (as the name implies) focuses more on blush, the Glo Face and Body Highlighter is a little more versatile - you can use it as a blush if it's the right shade, or a highlighter or bronzer. It's a pretty nifty multitasking product, and who doesn't love that?

The Sleek Makeup Glo Highlighters come in small, square black plastic cases that are just the size of my palm. That's not huge, but it's a pretty decent size for me. Also, the boxes that feature the colours of the highlighter on the boxes! I thought that was sort of a cute touch. And the colour on the boxes was pretty accurate too.

Don't believe me? Here's the actual thing! It totally looks like the box, haha. These come in three shades - a peach, a bronze, and a gold. The shade I have here is Peach Shimmer, the lightest shade available.

Anyway, I found these to have pretty good pigmentation and texture. The shimmer in these is a little frostier and shinier than the shimmer I found in the Sleek Blush by 3 range, because these are highlighters. They're pretty illuminating, so if you have really large pores or deep wrinkles, these can highlight those areas as well.

Here are swatches of the colours swirled together. I didn't bother with individual swatches of each of the stripes - I figured that the way all the colours are crammed together, noone's going to use them alone.

Since the shimmer can look rather metallic when piled on, a little goes a long way. If just the right amount is applied, you get a very pretty pearly glow with some peachy colour. It makes for a great highlighter, but also for fairer girls, would look great as a peachy blush with a hint of bronze. Overall, I think this is pretty great value for money - it reminds me of more expensive products like Dior's Amber Diamond and Too Faced Snow Bunny, but for much less. Good quality makeup at affordable prices - now who wouldn't like that?

  1. That actually looks good! I am a huge fan of highlighters! =)

  2. Oh it's really pretty - reminds of those famous Shimmer Bricks by Bobbi Brown as well no?

    My skin tone's fairly light, that might actually work as shimmery blusher after all - I think this shade is the prettiest of all available! I will put it on my list to check out when I'll visit London again :)

    1. @Godfrina: You know, I totally didn't think of the Bobbi Brown Shimmer Bricks, but you're right! It does look like them :)

  3. I really like the look of this x

  4. It really does resemble Amber Diamond.

  5. It looks beautiful! It's on my want list.

  6. It looks really pretty, I might have to get it... :)
