Sleek Cleopatra’s Kiss Palette

Hey loves,

I love a good highlight especially one you can see from space otherwise what’s the point right?!

I had my eye on the sleek Cleo’s kiss palette since it launched but every time I went to purchase it at my local boots or Superdrug store it was out of stock, so when I saw it the other day I had to snap it up!

This pallete is beautiful to look at it has a luxury feel with its gold outer casing, compact mirror and small brush.

This palette contains four shades;

  • Dynasty a cream liquid gold colour
  • Goddess a light gold shimmer powder

My review

Now I really had high hopes for this palette but I’m going to be completely honest and say that I’m quite disappointed with it, this has nothing to do with the quality or colour pay off at all, its to do with the type of highlight effect it creates, I’m not a fan of glitter although I can tolerate a slight shimmer I found sphinx and goddess far too glittery causing the glitter to move around during the day and resulting in it ending up all over my face (arghhh!) Saying that the cream shades are great and give a subtle highlight but I’m more of a powder kinda girl so was really underwhelmed by the powder shades.

Don’t get me wrong this palette is beautiful if shimmer/glitter is your thing then it’s a definite must have but personally for me it wasn’t a winner, I’ll stick to my trusty The Balm Mary Lou-maniser highlighter for now until I find the ‘one’ (for my review and more info on the Mary Lou-maniser highlighter click here)

You can purchase the sleek Cleopatra’s kiss highlighting palette from Boots or Superdrug both in store and online for more information or to purchase click here
