Product Review: Sleek Blush in Rose Gold



Hi Everyone,

I hope you are all having a great week- I have been a busy bee attending classes at college, going to work and juggling an essay!

Today I am doing a review of the Sleek Shimmer Blush in Rose Gold. I picked up this very reasonably priced blusher (£4.49 from Superdrug) a few weeks ago after reading lots of rave reviews from other bloggers claiming that its a great dupe for NARS' Orgasm blush. Never one to pass up on a bargain dupe, I thought I'd give it a go!

I found this blush really hard to photograph purely because it has so many different elements to it that the shade varies with the light. If I had to describe it I would say it is a bright, pink-coral shade with gold pigments in which give it a slight shimmer. Although it looks as though it is really pigmented it is actually very subtle on the skin, but could be built up for a more dramatic look.

All in all I really like this blusher. I am not normally a big fan of 'shimmery' blushes, but this one is subtle enough for everyday and doesn't leave my face lit up like a Christmas tree. If I had one criticism of this it would be that it is less of a coral shade than it appears in the pan, but this is really not a deal breaker for me and I will definitely keep using it. Seeing as I don't actually own the NARS Orgasm blush I can't really comment on Sleek's offering as a good dupe, but it is definitely another winning shade which I will be using again and again.

Have you tried this blush? Let me know your thoughts!

    1. Thanks so much, it is one of my favourites at the moment and a cheaper alternative to the NARS one!

    1. Thank you :) but it's probably just down to a bit of contouring! I really struggled to try and get a decent photo of this blush now that it gets dark so early!
