Sleek cheeks with a touch of Rose Gold
For one who loves makeup I have surprisingly few blushers in my collection and I seem to always use the same shade regardless of which look I'm going for. When I'm browsing the shops I never really get drawn in by blushers, or inspired by them in the way that other makeup products speak to me and there is rarely a color that screams: BUY ME! But since using different colors obviously creates different looks I know I should get some more blushers and more importantly, some more colors. I've mentioned before that I'm perfectly happy and probably won't think twice about splurging on some types of products - e.g. skin care, but blushers is definitely not one of those and my previous limited experience with premium brand blushers hasn't been fantastically positive. So having brushed lots of brands to the side I very quickly thought of Sleek since I've heard so many positive things about their blushers, and with 11 different shades and a few blusher palettes in their range I was confident I would find a couple of new colors for my cheeks. I picked up two new shades from the "classic" range of Sleek Blushers (£4.49) and the one that I'm showing today is the much talked about Rose Gold, which is considered a dupe for NARS Orgasm, but since I haven't actually tried the NARS blusher this isn't a comparison review, and I'll only focus on the qualities of Rose Gold today.
