PRODUCT REVIEW | Sleek 'Scandalous' blush

The first time i saw this blush, i shied away from it because it had a scary red colour. I assumed it would be too loud and look too harsh on the cheeks, but how wrong i was! One day, i decided to muster up courage and buy it, afterall, no harm in trying out stuff. After i bought it, it didn't take me long to discover that this beautiful blush only looked scary while in the pan.




'Scandalous' is a matte bright red blush....kinda looks 'orangey' to me sometimes though.......and it looks beaurriful when paired with red lips. It has no shimmer in it like most 'Sleek' blushes do. It sinks into the skin beautifully and gives a natural flush. It's very pigmented and gorgeous i must say, and a little goes a long way. I try not to over-do it, rather, i sheerly build it up so that i won't end up looking like i have two awkward round patches on my cheeks.



About the packaging, i love the way this product is packaged. It comes in a small size, and theres a mirror inside the cover. Yeah, it's small, but the product will last a while before it finishes. I like how sheer it is and the fact that its very blendable and buildable.



When i went to the store to buy it, i had to choose between 'Scandalous' and 'Rose gold', and believe me...it was torture! Well, i made up my mind to go back for the 'Rose gold' or better still, for a 3-in-1 blush palette by sleek. The colours they have are oh-so-gorgeous!




A closer view
 
The packaging kinda looks like that of NARS sha. I really like this blush, and i'll definately buy it again. It's one of those shades i'll always want to have in my collection...but the problem with 'Scandalous' is that i think it's kinda scarce.....oh well!

WHERE TO BUY

  • Sleek studio at V.I
  • Frannies Cosmetics, 22 Rd, Festac town...opposite TFC.
  • Ebenezer cosmetics...few stores away from Pharmacare, Festac-town.

That's it for my 'Scandalous review'. There's a 3-in-1 blush palette i'm eyeing sha. Once i get it, i'll do a review on it.

Besos everyone!
