Sleek Precious Metals Highlight Palette

I hope everyone’s having a great Sunday? I went for a rainy walk at the beach this morning and have since devoured a veggie roast. Midsomer Murders is my guilty Sunday pleasure. I’m 28 going on 80! Today I’m sharing an overdue review of an impulse buy I’m absolutely loving; The Sleek Precious Metals highlight palette.

I discovered Sleek some time ago, when I purchased their Sunset palette. Sleek are one of my favourite drugstore brands as I think the quality you get is fantastic for the price. Their eyeshadows are pigmented and good to work with.

Also I love that they take inspiration from nature when theming their products and collections. I’ve hovered over the buy button with their Nordic inspired palette in my basket on a number of occasions. Whilst the colours aren’t ones I would wear frequently I love the concept.

The palette is set in metal packaging, a reflective silver compact. Inside is a decent mirror. In comparison to the I-Divine eyeshadow palette packing this feels considerably more sturdy. However the I-Divine palettes are slightly cheaper and contain more product.

Sleek Precious Metals

The Sleek Precious Metals palette contains 3 cream shades and one powder. The cream shades are shimmery and consist of two similar rose gold / copper tones along a white shade. When swatched the cream products are sheer, but with faint colour payoff, distinguishable between shades.

The powder shade is a bronze tone with finely milled glitter. This has what I feel is appropriate colour payoff for a highlighter. Whilst this is a glitter highlighter, the results are subtle. It reminds me of the Anastasia Beverly Hills Gleam Glow Kit.

How I Use The Sleek Precious Metals Palette

Using a duo fibre MAC 130, I swirl some of each cream shade onto the brush. As the shades are similar I like to use a little of each. I apply across my cheek bones for a subtle highlight.

For a heavier highlight, I then apply a little of the bronze powder shade on the top of my cheekbones, my nose and cupid’s bow. As a rule layering powder over cream can be a recipe for unwanted texture. As the creams are lightweight, I don’t find this to be an issue.

When used alone, the bronze powder shade gives a great glow. And for those wanting a gentle more natural looking highlight, the cream shades are ideal.

Sleek Precious Metals

The Sleek Precious Metals palette is available from Boots (amongst other places) for £9.99. Whilst this is a small compact, it’s fantastic value for money. And it’s size makes it perfect for popping in your handbag.

I find myself reaching for this palette constantly at the moment. Have you tried it?

  1. The Sleek products in general are good value for money, I have two of their eyeshadow palettes and I adore them. The quality is great and with their shades you can create so many different looks.


    1. I’ve seen a few American influencers mentioning them in their videos, I think they’re coming to the States soon. Fingers crossed x

  2. The shades look really pretty. I bought the solstice palette and I loved the formula. The packaging was a nightmare though, it got so grubby and covered in fingerprints which drives me mad.
