Blushes are my third favourite, after mascaras. I do not own much now after I did my stint in clearing out my makeup collection earlier in the year, but I have tried to keep ones that I know will last a long time. Sleek Makeup blushes to me is a brand that became popular a few years ago and now, I rarely hear any beauty blogger rave about it. I am a bit old school when it comes to brands that became a hype and I try in my own way keep the hype alive, even when people have moved on to loving the next big thing.
I guess you could say, I am a loyal to brands kind of blogger, the one who, if she has set her eyes on a product and the product just works–melts her heart. Then, it is pretty much me raving about it for as long as my blog will allow me to! I have not used many Sleek Makeup products, just an eyeshadow palette, a couple of lipsticks and these blushes.
I love how timeless these blushes can be and I do not often refer to them as I should, because they do have some amazing quality with a high level of pigmentation. I find that compared to other blushes I currently own, these are a bit of an underdog. Though they shouldn’t be, because of how much impact these can make with any makeup look.
Each blush I have here can work for any occasion and I love all three out of the four. I made a mistake of purchasing Suede 921, which appears more of a peach-orange shade and not a good match for my skin tone (suits fair to light skin tones). I found it difficult to swatch, only after I had to apply at least 10 layers for it to appear on camera. I was merely going by other blogger reviews and swatches online, as there is no store near me that stocks them and therefore could not visit a counter to swatch in the flesh!
Apart from the elephant in the room, the other three are just superb. Can you tell how pigmented they appear and I highly recommend you guys check these out, as you will not be disappointed. Antique 142 (soft plum-brown with sliver reflexes) and Sunrise 924 (pink-brown with golden undertone) are new on the collection, but definitely blushes I can see myself wear over Spring and Summer. These contain the right amount of chic and shabby that you need for a day time makeup look. For evening though, I do prefer to opt for Pomegranate 923 (metallic berry) as this colour can be quite intense, can appear dramatic, but still amazing.
