A French maid in black and white and certainly needs a splash of red to add extra oomph, oui?
Needless to say I fell in love with red lipstick and from that time on, it’s constantly on my lips.
Now I got sent these two lovelies from Sleek, which seem to have been chosen perfectly to my skin tone.
The Coral Reef lipstick is a bright coral, depending on the day and light it is borderline fluoro, even though it photographs quite red. I love it. Great for summer.
The consistency is creamy, pigmentation is good and durability pretty standard. What I like the most is the size: it is so dinky it is perfect for any handbag.
This blusher in Rose Gold is beautiful! It is a pinker coral and has that golden sheen undertone that is so flattering, and although it looks quite dark, the pigmentation is subtle and flattering on my skin tone, adding a lovely glow. It is shimmery (but not glittery), so use with caution.
All packaged with in a slim compact with mirror.
Overall, a great return to the brand. Worth checking their line of blushers, with a great selection of colours (some great for contour) and very affordable prices.
