Sleek is one of my favourite drugstore makeup brands, but unbelievably, I’ve only recently featured one of their products here on my blog which was their limited edition Mirrored Pink blush. Their blushes cost just £4.49 each, and are available in a total of 10 permanent shades to suit a variety of skintones, as well as releasing limited edition shades as part of their collections. Their blushes are also available in various finishes too; matte, shimmer, satin and glitter which is pretty diverse for a budget beauty brand. I did receive their Flamingo blush in a Glossybox back in the Summer, but it was almost a neon pink so I got rid of it in my last blog sale as I’m not a fan of neon pink makeup. I bought Sleek Pixie Pink as Sleek describe it as being the perfect shade for fair to medium skintones.
The Sleek blushes are packaged within small black, thin compacts with a mirror within the lid. The packaging is very basic, but it’s functional too – protecting the product within. Each of the single blushes contain 8g of product. Sleek describe Pixie Pink as being a feminine pink, with a matte finish. I think the description could have been a little more descriptive, as I see any pink shade as a feminine shade?!
I would describe Sleek Pixie Pink as a bright bubblegum pink, with a blue undertone and matte finish. In the pan it does look a little intimidating, but when used with a light hand the colour is beautiful. Like all Sleek blushes, they’re intensely pigmented with just a tiny amount of product needed. I always apply Sleek’s blushes with a duo-fiber brush as it helps to give a pretty, subtle flush of pink to the cheeks – just how I like it.
I think Sleek Pixie Pink is such a pretty colour, that would suit a lot of skintones due to the blue undertone. I can’t help thinking that Pixie Pink is an amazing, longer lasting dupe of MAC’s Pink Swoon blush. I love how easy this shade of blush is to wear, and I’ve not found it to clash any eyeshadows or lipsticks which I always appreciate, although I probably wouldn’t wear a lipstick of this colour, in risk of looking like Barbie – unless that’s your style, of course. I really can’t say enough good things about the Sleek blushes, for £4.49 they’re really fantastic and there is bound to be shade to suit everyone. The next Sleek blush I’d love to try is their Suede blush, as it’s supposedly the perfect blush/bronzer shade for pale skin.
