Sleek Blushes (£4.49/8g)

What Sleek says:

Our blushers are long lasting and highly pigmented available in a variety of finishes. Each shade glides on smoothly and enables you to create an array of stunning looks. We offer a wide range of shades to complement any skin tone, no matter the occasion.

What I say:

sleekblushes_mirroredpink

Mirrored Pink was part of the Lagoon LE in 2013. It is now available in the Eye and Cheek Palette in Dancing ’til Dusk. I love this shiny pink colour, particularly in spring and summer.

sleekblushes_pomegranate

Pomegranate is probably my favourite blush by Sleek and is part of their standard product range. It is also available as part of the Eye and Cheek palette in See You At Midnight. I would describe it as a mix of pink and red with a slight shimmer to it.

My first Sleek blush and probably also one of the most hyped ones out there is Rose Gold. Many bloggers compared it Nars Orgasm, which I don’t own, but I will link you some comparisons below.

sleekblushes_honour

The Honour blush was part of the 2012 Limited Edition Collection they released during the Olympic Games. It is a brownish red that I personally love to wear in autumn.

Overall I think these blushes are a good option in the drugstore, as they are very affordable and generally also very pigmented. Sleek says they are long lasting, however in my experience they kind of disappear after a while. Other blushes like the ones by Illamasqua or Everyday Minerals last a lot better on me. That being said, I do enjoy using them and think for what they cost they are good quality.

Sleek Blush by 3 (£10.00/20g)

What Sleek says:

The ultimate cheeky palette offering you three times the impact. Includes three complementary shades, each designed with its own distinctive finish, from rich shimmers to intense matte shades.

  • Available in eight unique colour combinations designed to suit all skin tones
  • Each shade can be used alone, or layered for a unique look
  • Each palette has a versatile selection of shades to take your makeup from day to night and keep it on trend from season to season
  • Set in a mirrored compact, ideal for touch-ups throughout the day

What I say:

The above Blush by 3 is the Sugar one, which includes the blushes (1) Turbinado (2) Muscovado and (3) Demerara. My favourite colour out of the three is the one in the middle, which is also the most pigmented one. I sometimes use it as an eyeshadow as well. The two other matte shades are a lot more chalky and take more effort to blend them nicely. Overall, a handy palette if you are traveling because you have several colours to choose from.
