Sleek Blusher in "Flushed"

Blusher has always scared me. My fear was confirmed even more the other day when I saw a girl wearing cream blusher but she hadn’t blended it in. So when I started to do my research on blushers, I decided that the Sleek stand was probably the best place to start.

Best known for their eyeshadows and blushers, Sleek is an English makeup brand exclusive to Superdrug. When I got to the stand, the blushers obviously stood out from the crowd and I was surprised to see such a wide range of shades! They had corals and pinks and reds and even a brown one (why would you wear brown blusher? Or maybe it was a bronzer… who knows?!) So it got to the point where I narrowed it down to the more natural tones (crazy red blusher would definitely set my fears straight) and managed to grab “Flushed”.

At first, the name began to baffle me. As you can see from the picture above, the product in the pan definitely doesn’t match the name. But I decided that I had to start somewhere and decided that I’d give it a go anyway.

When I first tried it, I put on a small amount and decided that it was just a little weak. I then put on a bit more and look liked a bloody clown – fear = confirmed. So I tried it again the next day and realised that these products are so amazingly pigmented that the only problem I had was that I wasn’t being careful enough with how much my brush picked up!
For only £4.49, this product is absolutely outstanding. Now, how much were those eyeshadow palettes?..
