So, I purchased 3 out of the 11 Sleek blushes, each being 8g (0.27oz) for $6.50 (not including shipping costs). Another great deal from Sleek especially if you compare it to MAC powder blushes which are 6g (0.21oz) and costs $41 in Australia!! This is why I NEVER buy makeup from department stores here!
I love the quality of these blushes and unlike their eyeshadow formula, I don't find it to be powdery at all. The product glides very smoothly on the cheeks with a relatively good staying power. The blushes are fairly pigmented too with some being more pigmented than others, but you definitely do not need too much of the product on your brush which is great.
L-R: Pixie Pink, Pomegranate, Rose Gold
'Pixie Pink' is a matte bubblegum neon pink. It definitely does not look as scary or shocking on your cheeks than it does in the pan! It gives a pretty pink flush on the cheeks, suitable for basically any makeup look. Definitely great for those with fairer skin!
What a surprise I picked up a blush in ROSE GOLD :p ! I could not pass up on this blush. I've read in many reviews that this blush is comparable to the famous Nars blush in 'Orgasm' but 'Rose Gold' is definitely the less expensive option! This is a gorgeoussssss colour. It's a beautiful rosy pink blush with gold shimmers (no chunky glitters! :D) It gives a really nice healthy glow to your skin.
'Pomegranate' is a deep berry colour with shimmers. I don't use this blush as often as the other two as I find it can be a bit too dark on my fair skin during the day time. I occassionally like using this on a night out on my contour areas of my cheeks rather than on the apples. This blush is rather pigmented so definitely only a slight swipe is needed.
L-R: Pixie Pink, Rose Gold, Pomegranate
