I only recently discovered the world of Sleek outside of their eyeshadows thanks to their Faceform – I loved it and couldn’t wait to try more of the blushes. I already had Rose Gold as it came in the palette and that’s beautiful but I wanted to try something matte so I picked this up along with another which I will review later. This was a total out there colour for me, I usually choose pinks of peaches.. very rarely something as deep as Flushed and the first time I used it I looked like a Russian doll so I really wasn’t sure I’d get much use from it. Since then I’ve perfected the light handed application and usually come up with something like the below.
I could have gone heavier here and in the mirror it looked like I had but I used just a little and buffed it in with my angled blush brush avoiding the apples of my cheeks. That’s been a bit of a revelation for me this year actually.. blush placement. I tend to use it in place of a contour now (when I’m not using my faceform) rather that my apples as it can tend to look a little odd and it’s not uber flattering on a round face like mine.. learning all the time!
I will definitely be looking more at Sleek blushes in future, I’m not completely in love with their eyeshadows but as a brand they get a lot of good press so I feel like I should broaden my horizons and try some more, any recommendations?
