Pretty lips and cheeks with Sleek

sleek makeup - lipstick and blusherI believe the very first red lipstick I bought in the UK was from Sleek. It was way before my beauty blogging days and I bought it for a fancy dress party.

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.

The Sleek Blush costs £4.49 and the Sleek True Colour Lipstick, £4.99, and can be bought from their website and retailers like Superdrug.
