As I mentioned in my last post, over the bank holiday weekend I headed to Exeter for a bit of a shopping trip. My local Superdrug is very small and doesn’t have a Sleek counter, so Sleek was on the top of my agenda for this trip.
The lovely Joanna from Pores for Thought (Go check out her blog, it’s amazing!) did a post recently about drugstore dupes, in this post she talked about the Sleek Rose Gold blush and how it was a really good dupe for NARS Orgasm – which at £23 is 5x the price of the Sleek offering. So I decided I had to give the Rose Gold blush a go. I also picked up another blush in the shade Suede as I’m trying to expand my blush collection.
I think I will more than likely write a full review on these products once I’ve put them to the test (let me know if that’s something you’d be interested in). But for now I just thought I would give you my first impressions. This is my first venture into the world of Sleek and I am very impressed. The packaging is lovely, it almost reminds me of the higher end brands such as NARS & MAC.
The main thing that caught my attention with these blushers was the colour! The Rose Gold is absolutely stunning, it’s a bit brighter than what I would usually use but I really love it. It is quite shimmery but don’t let this put you off, as its very blendable on the skin. I’d say I will probably use this shade more for nights out / going out for dinner make up looks, rather than a every day look.
Suede is such a perfect every day shade. It’s a sandy/peach toned nude blush, it is part of the Sleek shimmer blush range but I honestly think this is more of a matte as I can’t see any shimmer in there at all. I am quite fair skinned and find this shade so flattering, it’s very easy to work with as the product is silky smooth and has a really good colour pay off. As you can see from the swatches above, the colour pay off of both shades is insane – considering that the RRP is £4.49.
I am so happy with both of these shades, and I can’t wait to add more Sleek products to my make up kit.
