Complete Sleek Blush Swatches

I have been blogging quite a bit about SleekMakeup but after the event they held a few weeks back I now have quite a few products and always get such a great response when I talk about any of their products.
Today I will be talking about their blush which retail for just £4.30 on their website for 8g, which is great value for money especially as many of them are very pigmented. The packaging is really nice and classic with a useful sized mirror on the inside.

I currently have 11 different shades ranging from pastel pinks and corals to bright reds and deep pinks.

Above Pan-Tao

Coral
This actually isn't really a Coral blusher at all instead it is more of a browned orange and is completely matte.
Life's a Peach
Gorgous pastel matte Peach and love the name, one of the more sheer blushers
Sahara
Completely Matte orangey brown, this one is the one which scares me the most!
Pomegranate
Metalic berry colour it is very pretty, smooth and pigmented.
Flushed
Plum toned matte colour, perfect for darker skin tones.
Rose Gold
Often compared to Nars Orgasm blush it is a peachy pink with a golden sheen.
Flamingo
This is the one I reach for the most, easy to wear bright pink. Very pigmented and would look good on almost all skin tone.
Sunrise
At first I was so scared of this colour but in fact I love it! It is a pink with red/brown undertones with a golden sheen.
Pixie Pink
Bubblegum Pink with no shimmer, perfct everyday colour if applied with light hand.
Scandalous
Extrememly pigmented red blush (dupe for Nars Exihbit A, apparently) Doesn't work with my pale skin.
Pao Tan
Very Orange peach

Sorry I am not too good a decribing colours but I hope it helped. I would say there is something in this range for every skintone and at just £4.30 you can afford to experiment.

Apply the blushers with a light hand as many are very pigmented, it is much easier to build them up lightly then to blend them away.
Some of the colours are limited edition but are all online on the Sleek website apart from Life's a Peach.
SleekMakeup is also available from Superdrugs and Online.

  7. Great swatches! I love the look of Rose Gold and Sunrise the best.

    Personally I don't think Rose Gold looks like NARS Orgasm? Looks much paler and pinker.

  19. I tried this after a friend recommended it, it was quite nice. I'm not sure I would personally re-buy it, but it was defiantly a worthy buy once. Great review :) x
