Sleek Glo Highlighter revamped into Dior Amber Diamond!

The brand is literally fantastic at everything they do and it was high time they reformulated their highlighter. I have used Sleek Glo before as a part of their spot light kit but wasn't very impressed with how 'texturised' it was as compared to their bronzers if you know what I mean. 

The powder was very illuminating but sat on top of the skin hence enhanced pores and looked slightly tacky. The new one however looks quite neat. I am not sure if the packaging is different but I like how it's like a standard shimmer brick compact.  



The combination of shades in the brick is what makes the particular shade I have, 'Bronze Baby' superb. I have had a look at the other two shades but I doubt I would use it as one's too peachy and one's too bronze.

This hits the middle ground with its cool silvery-pink moonlight-like effect which is perfect. 



The consistency is not tacky at all now. It melts into the skin, blends well and no edges can be seen  which is exactly what you should look for in a highlighter in particular.

I couldn't get to swipe the entire brick so here's a little swatch of the lighter and the darker areas but it's best used swirled together. 

I personally use it every day after bronzer and blusher on the cheekbones and it catches light so beautifully. Oh and also, you really don't need a brush with this, just dab on a little with your fingers and you're good to go.




Kudos to Sleek for taking into consideration consumer and blogger comments and reformulating this baby as it really gives Dior Amber Diamond and Nars Albatross a run for their money. 

Get it here for £6.49.

This looks lovely, i've seen the other colours and didn't think they looked that great but this one definitely deserves a swatch.

I love sleek, I think for the money they make GREAT products. The blushes are just amazing but I just don't think this can compare to amber diamond from what it looks like in these pictures. But it doesn't even matter if it looks like it or not, if it's a good product it doesn't need to imitate anything :D

@Anca - Hehe I agree its not exactly a dupe of Amber Diamond. Just used itt as a reference as that's apparently everyone's cult favourite highlighter :)
