Sleek Makeup Peach Shimmer Glo Face & Body Highlighter

Sleek Makeup Peach Shimmer Glo Face & Body Highlighter ($10.00 for 0.29 oz.) is a multi-colored highlighter that features five strips of color that can be swirled together or used in parts to create an illuminated look. This is an online exclusive to sleekmakeup.com. Each strip is fairly narrow, so they’re not shades you would use singularly as a blush, though you could certainly try or go for a very precise look by using eye brushes instead. The five individual shades consist of a shimmering white gold with a strong yellow gold sheen, peachy beige with a softer shimmer, coppery orange with a shimmery finish, golden peach-pink with a frosted finish, and a dirty beige with a champagne frosted shimmer. Together, they create a warm bronze with a golden shimmer-sheen and slight red undertones. It’s a bit like a shimmery version of Urban Decay’s Toasted. Estee Lauder Topaz Chameleon is similar but more orange-y.

The texture of the powder is very soft and feels finely-milled, and the payoff of each individual shade was lovely. I didn’t have any problems with pigmentation while swatching or during application. This is the kind of over-the-top highlighter than some will absolutely love but others will struggle to perfect. It has a strong frosted, borderline-metallic, finish, which emphasizes pores, skin imperfections, and any natural texture you may have to your skin. For those lucky enough to be owners of perfect complexions, this is beautiful on, but for the rest of us, it can be a little too much.  I did like how soft the powder was, because it made it very easy to blend and soften against the skin.  I was disappointed in the wear, though; it started to look patchy and faded after a mere six hours.

For the price point, the texture is amazing!  The wear and the way to does emphasize skin imperfections are downsides, though.  I’d recommend using a stippling brush to achieve more of a glow while minimizing some of the emphasis it naturally gives because of that strong frosted and metallic finish.  It’s a bit more of a bronzy glow on my skin tone than pure highlighter, so for lighter skin tones, you’ll find this more of a blush/bronzer, while deeper skin tones will find this to work well as a warm-toned highlighter. It does compare well with Bobbi Brown’s Shimmer Bricks, which also have a stronger, frostier finish.

    I love this natural look on you Christine! And btw, cute earrings!

  2. This looks pretty and is really affordable, the colours are lovely and could even be used as eyeshadows in my opinion. Sleek always has nice stuff in my opinion, I haven’t come across anything bad yet.

  3. I love your earrings, Christine!:)

  4. Oh, oh. That is lovelyyyy! Even lovelier than the Shimmer Bricks, IMO!

  5. Jasmine

    Id love if you reviewed more sleek products especially palettes!
    Thank you for all you do!

    As a UK reader, I’m so glad you’ve done a Sleek review! Are you planning on doing any more?

  7. I love how glowy it makes your cheeks look.

  8. Thanks for the review, and for the suggestion to use a stippling brush! I have a few of these Sleek highlighters in their other colors, and am waiting for Peach Shimmer to make it’s way home to me in a few days! Hope you review more Sleek products in the future!

    I’d like to ask what would you recommend best.. Milani’s illuminating Powder or sleek’s glo? Thanks!

  10. Peach and coral are the two tones that are perfect of any skin tone.

  11. genevieve

    I have never gotten my hands on any Sleek products, but I am a sucker for highlighters! This looks stunning on you, especially the lipstick- I think I might have to break my Shy Girl out:)

  12. Sarah

    Starting to feel like sleek are selling themselves out a bit now…

  13. It does seem to highlight the pores but I still like the glow its giving to the face. The whole look is beautiful!

  14. Helu

  18. Jessica Ward

    I wish there were more reviews of Sleek products by you. I think the products are really good for the price point. Hopefully, PR considers for review by you lipsticks, pout paints, and new Eau la la liners:)

  19. Gillian

    Hi Christine! This is so pretty. Just a question, what lipstick are you wearing? It’s really pretty (:

  20. Elena

    Thanks for reviewing a Sleek product!!!!

  21. This looks great on you!
    *sigh* Too golden for me though…

  22. Michelle

    Hey Christine! Here in my country we don`t get a lot of high-end make-up and our Sephoras are very poor but there is a site that sells Sleek makeup! I heard a lot about Sleek eye shadows, that they are very good and comparable with urban decay (they don`t sell in UD my country). Can you pleeease review the sleek eye shadows so that I know your opinion? I always follow Temptalia and crave at the goodies on this site. Thank you! xo

  23. Luisafer

    Beautiful look! You look great!!!

  24. I was scrolling ant thought that was a Shimmer Brick. What a great alternative for folks on a budget

  25. Lindsay LouWho
