Sleek Blush in Pixie Pink

Tuesday, 4 September 2012

Swatched lightly on left, swatched heavily on right
I feel like my blog is turning into the ramblings of a lip product junkie, so I thought I'd better not do yet another lip product review today! This was a pretty bold choice of cheek colour for me, as I usually stick with my trusty Benefit Sugarbomb. I've already tried Sleek's blush in Rose Gold (review here) which I do really like. I saw this in Superdrug and was feeling adventurous, so I took the plunge and I'm so glad I did.

This blush is quite a cool pink colour, it's completely different to anything else I have blusher-wise and it's a matte shade, again something which is unique in my blusher collection. I don't find this to be quite as pigmented as Rose Gold, but it does give a lovely rosy pink colour when applied and I really really like it! I just swirl a little bit on the apples of my cheeks and it gives such a nice flush of colour. I can imagine it being easy to go overboard with this and end up looking like a clown, but applied lightly it looks gorgeous.

As always, the packaging of the product is lovely. I do love Sleek's packaging, I love the matte casing and the little compact mirror which really comes in handy. The only issue I have with it is that I find it difficult to open, but that might just be me. I always end up having to force it open and my finger ends up in the blush in the process - I made a huge dent in my Rose Gold by doing this but again, it's probably just clumsy me.

Sleek is such an affordable, great quality brand and this is another product which hasn't failed to impress me. It cost £4.49 and can be found online here or in most Superdrug stores.

Sleek Makeup also have 20% off until the 9th of September, so I'd definitely recommend picking up a few bits and pieces before then to save some pennies!


  1. oh wow, the pink is such a pretty colour! I'm torn between a few of their shades so thanks for sharing!

    1. No problem, I hope you find one you like. I thought they all looked quite daunting in the pans, but when swatched they're lovely! I'm after a Blush by 3 palette now - can't get enough. xx

  2. That's a really pretty shade, I'm after rose gold at the minute!
    Just thought I'd let you know that I've just tagged you in an award :)

    1. My local store is ALWAYS sold out, I'm so lucky I found this in a blog sale! Ah thank you so much lovely, but I already did the Liebster Award Tag. :) xx

  3. This is so pretty!Think I will have to pick this up soon xx

  4. i am really getting into blushers but not so much that i want to spend the earth on them! this looks gorgeous, must try some sleek blushes!

    1. Same! I'd love some NARS blushers but I just cannot justify paying £20+ for a blusher when you can get the same great quality without breaking the bank. :) xx

  5. Ooh reminds me of the no7 blusher i have at the momenr thats more expensive, this would be a fab alternative and cheaper! Thanks for the review!
