Sleek Blush – Flushed
Sleek have created some lovely make-up pieces including the Au-Naturel palette I bought a while back. This lead to me picking this blush up on a bit of a whim, it’s kinda crazy looking in the pan and even has shimmer in it. Now I don’t think I gave this a fair chance as you can see I took a few chunks out of it with my nails when I first bought it. This got me to hating it before I’d even got to the product which has barely been touched.
From the swatch above you can see a little of this goes a long way it’s just s pigmented. I was most worried about looking like a sparkly fairy princess with the glitter but it just doesn’t transfer to the cheeks at all! What I will say is be light handed with your blush brush or you will look like a clown. I think I’m gonna have to get a split fibre brush maybe the Real Techniques set to make the an easier application. If you do go over board I cheat and apply my Mac Studio Plus powder on top. You could use any just don’t use too much as it could go cakey. I managed to keep this more on the natural flushed cheeks shade as you can see below. I went pretty natural with everything else as it was just for day look. I applied Rimmel’s Scandaleyes liner in Nude to cancel out the redness in my waterline. I find if you don’t the shade of the blush can make any other redness stand out too, not a good look.
Benefit – Coralista
Another product that got cast aside long ago when I told myself I hate lip gloss. I think there’s a possibility that this may stand for most lip gloss in general. What I wanted to say was I tried it and liked this one. It adds only a small amount of colour but is more balmy that sticky. I have spent a lot of time assuming I won’t like something before trying it out. This is the same reason that I never wore lipstick until I started blogging.
