I was immensely excited when I heard Sleek Makeup were coming out with a new highlighting palette full of golden tones called Cleopatra's Kiss. Their top selling highlighting palette 'Solstice' has been talked about all over social media and has gained even more international success following popular YouTuber Jaclyn Hill's snapchat raving about the palette. As I am quite tanned and of a medium dark complexion, Solstice just didn't work for me but I loved the formula of the highlights - which is why I was super excited to try out Cleopatra's Kiss.
I bought mine in store from Superdrug yesterday (22/09/16) and there were only 2 left so I decided to get both since they were doing 2 for £12. This palette is a part of their Halloween collection so I'm not sure if it's limited edition or permanent. I swatched the shades in store and was super impressed with the pigmentation and the shade range. The shades will look particularly flattering on medium to deeper complexions.

The palette comes with 2 cream highlighters; Delta - a light bronze shade and Dynasty - a light gold shade, and 2 powder highlighters; Sphinx - a true bronzed gold shade with glitter and Goddess - a light champagne shade with a bit of sparkle. Upon first swatch Dynasty and Sphinx are my favourites as I love the shades and they are the most pigmented. The texture of the powder highlights are a little bit chunky but still really beautiful. The packaging is the same for all their highlighters, it comes in a sturdy sleek gold packaging with a mirror and mini brush which is perfect if you're on the go.
Here's a swatch of all the shades on my arm. For reference as most of you will know I'm an NC42 in MAC.

I am definitely going to test the products on my face and will post a photo on snapchat and instagram so make sure you are following me on both! I will also be using the palette in an upcoming makeup tutorial on my YouTube channel.
