Review: Sleek MakeUP Blush in Sunrise
SLEEK MAKEUP CLAIMS
A highly pigmented blusher to brighten and define cheekbones. The silky-fine formulation provides long lasting blusher which helps to create a subtle but radiant cheek area.
Apply using a small powder/blusher brush, by swirling the brush over the surface of the blusher. Tap off excess powder and apply onto the apples of the cheeks to emphasise your cheeks and your smile, or just below the cheek bone to create a sculpted look.
$6.50 from Sleek MakeUP
FACTS AND FIGURES
The 8g blush comes in a flat, rectangular compact with a mirror inside.
After falling madly in love with Sleek’s Pan Tao blush I was adamant about hoarding some more Sleek blushes. I had my eyes on the much-popular-NARS-Orgasm-dupe Rose Gold which unfortunately was out of stock (I quenched that dupe thirst with NYX’s blush in Pinched) and went out for the other magnificent shade – Sunrise.
This shade reminds me so much of Autumn, probably because of its rich red-brown colour.
I don’t really find it a
summer colour, it would work as a great summer bronzer and
yes I bought this in winter. I am just so lazy when it comes to right-on-time
reviews that it took me an entire season to write a post on it.
We all know, and those of you who don’t, know it now, Sleek blushes are crazily pigmented (in a good way, that is) though you definitely need to apply them with a light hand. Blend and blend is the key. Sunrise is yet again another of those beautiful shades that you don’t find around much. I adore the shimmer of gold under the warm red-brown, gives such a rosy glow to my whole face. I also noticed pink undertones to this shade. And as you will obviously expect from such pigmentation, the staying power is pretty good.
The blush is by Sleek. Need I say more?
