FIRST IMPRESSION | SLEEK ROSEGOLD BLUSH


Hi there lovely faces! Today I’m going to tell you about my first impression of the Sleek blush in Rosegold. I think you all know Rosegold is a dupe for Nars Orgasm; unfortunately I don’t have that one, so I won’t be able to do a comparison.
The packaging is simple and has Sleek's logo on it, on the back it says which colour it is. The only problem I have with this is that it’s sooo hard to open! Are all Sleek blushes like that? I already ditched my finger in there the second time I wanted to open it... It makes it great for travelling though: small, hard to open, easy to carry around with you.
It is a beautiful pinkish coral blush with a lot of gold shimmer in it. It is very, very pigmented. It can be a tiny bit powdery, so you have to look out for fall-out. (Tap off any excess, then it’s fine!) It has a scent to it though, but you won’t smell it when it’s on your face, don’t worry.

Because of the shimmer, I would use it on the highest points of my cheekbones (more as a highlight). I normally put blush there anyway, because I think it gives a “fresher” look to the face.

Tip: When you apply blusher to the apples of your cheeks – especially when smiling, it makes you look older because it kind of drags your face down in a way. When you apply blusher only to the high points of your cheeks and blend it towards your temples: it gives a fresher, younger look to your face.

Can you see how pigmented that goes on? You need to be careful you don’t end up with a pink stripe across your cheek, take your time blending it and building it up rather than putting on too much at once.

Personally I love this blush. I love anything coral, so this is right up my alley.

Get: If you want something similar to Nars Orgasm and don’t want to spent a lot of money on it.
Forget: If you already have Nars Orgasm, that’s kind of pointless.

Lots of love,
Laurie
