Everyone is raving about the new Sleek MakeUp from UK. How can I not getting my hands on them. Somehow during their 50% sales, I only managed to get my hands on these babies blusher. Sleek MakeUp had instantly become a popular drugstore brand for their highly pigmented and good quality.
So I got my Sleek MakeUp blush in the famous Rose Gold, Sunrise and the latest Scandalous. The packaging is very 'sleek' quite similliar to the brand name and does resemble with NARS blusher too. It took me awhile to open it up for the first time, but after awhile it was loosen up.
You can't imagine how excited I was when I got my parcel. :D Even by looking at them, it's pretty pigmented and shimmery.
The packaging is pretty "Sleek" matches with their brand name. Their packaging is very tiny. Look at how it is on my hand? Absolutely suitable for travel purposes but mind you, it is very fragile.
I assumed most ingredient on the blushers are the same except for the color. =) But for 8g of blusher, I guess this really last me very long time.
Swatches (on pan):
Rose Gold is very shimmery, but not glittery. It's a peachy coral colour with gold undertones. There's pink in there too but not so much as Orgasm. A lot of people have compared Rose Gold to Benefit's Coralista and even Nars Orgasm but the Sleek blush is definitely a couple of shades darker, peachier and with more concentrated shimmer. I've swatched and compared it on my Facebook page. Nevertheless, it is a very beautiful color. (Swatches below)
Sunrise is described as a shimmery blush with brown/red undertones. I was a little bit scared of this one when I first saw it. It's a lovely bronzed colour, but it looks super duper dark It has red/brown/plum undertones and looks almost like a bronzer in the pan.
Scandalous is one of the Limited Edition blusher from Stiletto Collection launched during Valentine this year. The tomato red matte blush is absolutely killer even on the pan itself. It actually reminds me of Geisha color. Don't ask me why...Some even say that this blush is exact dupe for Nars Exhibit A except a bit oranje.
Swatches & Texture:
All I can say is the blushers are super pigmented and smooth!! It's above my expectation for the price I paid.
|From L to R: Rose Gold, Sunrise, Scandalous|
It's more sheeny than shimmer and the powder is extremely finely milled so it goes on incredibly smooth. The pigmentation is soo PIGMENTED that you need to use a light hand on your cheek. I really find Rose Gold very nice on my hand. The shimmery is acceptable not too glittery, just enough to give you a nice glow on you cheek. While Sunrise I expected it to be a dark bronzer but it is more towards plum color and it doesn't look dirty at all. For Scandalous, you gonna be really light-handed with this. As below.
I blended the blushers out to make it more even. But Scandalous still look very pigmented indeed. Therefore my advise, just use a very light hand, get a light coating on your blush brush and tap off excess and apply very lightly until you get the desired coverage. It will works awesomely on your cheek.
Overall, for the price of £4.29, less than RM 30 for 8g blushers it's definitely worth it and way better quality than normal drugstore products. Do tell me how do you find Sleek Makeup, do you love them like I do?
