Huda Beauty Winter Solstice Highlighting Palette Review

I haven't tried too many products from Huda Beauty but this one had been at the top of my wishlist ever since it launched. I love highlighters and I had heard really good things about this one so I couldn't wait to get it on my cheekbones...

The Winter Solstice Highlighting Palette retails for £40 at UK stockists and includes four stunning highlighting shades, three powders and one crème shade. I love coloured highlighters so I knew I would get a lot of use out of this and I honestly haven't stopped using it since September! This is different than any of the highlighting palettes or individual shades I have in my collection as it is a little cooler toned than what I would usually go for. Huda Beauty has a few different highlighting palettes if this one isn't for you.

The palette itself is made of a durable cardboard and it has a thick plastic insert inside with Huda on it. The pan sizes are much bigger than I was expecting them to be and you get 7.5g of each powder highlight and 6g of the cream highlighter. It's a decent size as it isn't too big or small and it doesn't take up much room in my makeup bag, it's fairly sleek too. The four shades in this palette are:

- Frosted Kiss: a powdery pink
- Arctic Glow: an icy lilac-blue
- Northern Lights: a glimmering yellow gold
- Winter Rose: a richer pink

The one shade I don't find myself using much is the crème shade, Frosted Kiss. I'm not a massive fan of cream products as I don't find that they work well with my skin. But I did try this out a few times and it has a powdery finish on the skin and doesn't have a greasy or oily feel like some cream products can. It does transform the powder shades when you apply them over the top which I was impressed with. The powder shades are stunning on the skin, I didn't think they would be that wearable but I have been wearing these shades every single day. My favourite shade would have to be Arctic Glow, mainly because it's unlike anything I have in my collection. This is probably the least wearable shade in the palette when compared to the other shades but I love how it looks on the skin. 

I like to use the Real Techniques Setting Brush to apply these to the cheekbones as this brush is perfect for applying a light highlight or building up the intensity. The powder shades don't look powdery on the skin and these highlights don't draw attention to my texture issues. These are extremely glowy on the skin and reflective when the sunlight hits the cheekbones, they are very intense! They are very long-lasting, they will be on my cheekbones until I remove my makeup at the end of the day!
