Sleek Makeup Solstice Highlighting Palette

Sleek Makeup Solstice Highlighting Palette ($14.99 for 0.32 oz.) consists of four highlighters–three powder, one cream. They’re designed as “highly pigmented metallic finishes” that give a “luminous sheen” on the “face and body.” It’s a fun palette for highlighting that doesn’t break the bank, and I think that the biggest issue is that not all shades were “highly pigmented” but imagine for many, that’s not a deal-breaker when it comes to highlighters.

Charlotte Tilbury Seductive Beauty / Dolce Vita Instant Look Palette

Charlotte Tilbury Seductive Beauty Instant Look in a Palette ($75.00 for 0.77 oz.) is a neutral-hued eye and cheek palette that features three eyeshadows and four cheek/face products. I think if you have a good arsenal of neutrals, this will be dupable for you, but they are still a nice set of neutrals that work well together and would be travel-friendly. If you prefer more mattes or less shimmery eyeshadows, though, this one may be limiting. All in all, the palette was easy to use; there was no real fuss, and the more quality-related issue I had was how soft the bronzer was, but it looked great applied, which is where it counts the most.

NARS Melina Contour Blush Duo

NARS Melina Contour Blush ($42.00 for 0.28 oz.) is one of two new, permanent highlighting/contour duos for fall. The highlighting shade in the duos tends to be mostly matte, so it is not your typical shimmery, glowy highlighter. This is one of the deeper duos, so it should be good for someone who wants a more dramatic contour or for someone with a medium or darker skin tone.
