Hey guys! Long time, no see!
Sure, it’s only been a week and a bit but I’ve missed two posting slots! Sorry about that. My days are getting so busy on the lead up to Christmas that the only time I have to blog is the evening – but that’s when the lighting goes crazy and swatches don’t show up. Aargghh!
Anyhow, I’ve missed posting on here and speaking to you all, so I’m back with a ‘worth the hype?’ today on the Sleek blushers. If you read a lot of beauty blogs or watch YouTube videos, you’ve no doubt heard about these blushers and I had to pick one up and see what all the fuss is about.
So, a few weeks ago I mentioned in a haul post that I’d decided to try Rose Gold 926 – a beautiful, shimmery peach with golden glitter running through it. Let’s get started.
(If you’re not interested in a really detailed review just skip to the bottom where I round up my overall thoughts)
Let’s start with the price – £4.49! I immediately grabbed one, because that’s such a good price for blushers that I’ve heard are absolutely amazing. The packaging is also great – a cute, black and (dare I say it) SLEEK compact with a mirror that’s fab for travelling.
I love how this is a high-end twist on such an affordable product – if you compare it to the Bourjois blushers for example, the compacts look drugstore – but I love how the small amount of packaging actually used on the Sleek blushers give it such an expensive feel and look.
You get a good amount of product for that price too – I’ve been using mine practically everyday since I got it, and it barely looks used at all – fingers crossed it won’t be hitting pan for ages!
Sleek have a great shade variety so there’ll definitely be one to suit your skin tone, and there’s also different formulae – mine’s shimmery (obviously) but there’s also matte ones too.
Now onto the formula. Because it is a powder blusher (Sleek do have creams too though), it has amazing lasting power and sits beautifully on the cheeks. The golden shimmer that runs through it means it also gives a subtle highlight, but I do add highlighter separately anyway – out of habit I guess!
I’d say the blusher is perfect for all skin types as it lasts well on my skin as it is now, which is quite dry, but I can’t see it sliding off those of you with oilier skin? Powders generally suit oily skin better anyway!
Packaging: 5/5 (sturdy and durable, and looks expensive)
Formula: Powder. Lasts a long time and sits nicely on the skin.
Colour choice: 5/5 (one for every single skin tone and a mixture of matte and shimmer shades)
Overall quality: 5/5
WORTH THE HYPE?: Definitely! The best blushers that I’ve tried in the drugstore by far! I’d say that this one rivals my favourite Benefit blusher too, and it’s literally a fraction of the price. I’m going to have to pick more of these up!
Have you tried any Sleek blushers? What colour should I try next?
That’s all from me!
