You may have heard tell that I like a blusher or two. Well, here are THREE amazingly coloured cream blushers all in one palette for a tenner.
I love Sleek. A lot of their colours are wonderfully bright and look fabulous on dark skintones, so although I can’t wear a lot of the shades I spend a lot of time marvelling at their general gorgeousness whenever I pass a concession by.
It’s also fairly rare that I find a concession that is anything near to fully stocked, with the more popular items long gone by the time I get there.
So imagine the thrill when I saw that my local Sleek stand was packed to bursting with little beauties like this. This is the ‘Californ.I.A’ palette of 3 cream blushers in summery shades which are just begging to be used on top of a light tan as you cruise down the Pacific Coast Highway in your sporty little coupe *shakes self.*
The colours aren’t individually named, but L-R I’d say there’s a watermelon, an apricot and a peach. All summery, infinitely wearable colours for pale to medium skintones that like to fall on the coral blusher spectrum (having rosacea I avoid pink like the plague).
They apply like a dream, in a light wash of colour that can be built up (and/or mixed) if you want more than just a flush of blush. The outer two shades are mostly matte, and the middle, apricot shade has a slight pearly rose gold shimmer to it, making it useful as a very subtle highlighter.
I can’t tell you how much I love these. They are just SO WEARABLE! Sorry -I’m just so pleased to have something lovely to review having been on such a downer about BB creams yesterday!
Does blusher cheer you up? Or do other products float your boat more?
