Sleek MakeUP Pixie Pink Blush

Sleek MakeUP Pixie Pink Blush is a brilliant budget blush, amazingly it's only £4.49. Sleek's blushes really are great quality, rivalling the higher end versions. The ones I've tried have all been full of pigment, relatively easy to blend and also long-wearing. I actually find Pixie Pink easier to wear than Illamasqua's Katie, which has a white cast that can be draining.  Pixie Pink is much more flattering and warming on the skin for us pale folks.

Pixie Pink looks really bright in the pan but on the cheeks is really pretty and natural. It's a great blush for an English Rose look. The texture is smooth and finely milled. Even though it's easy to blend it can take a bit extra work than some other blushes (eg Illamasqua or Nars) but not overly so. I just needed to buff it out a bit more to blend it into my skin. 

Here’s the ingredients (they're Vegetarian and Vegan-Friendly)

Mica, Talc, Bis-Diglyceryl Polyacyladipate-2, Pentaerythrityl Teraisostearate, Nylon-12, Magnesium Stearate, Jojoba Esters, Dimethicone, Polyethylene, Phenoxyethanol and Chloroxylenol. May contain: [+/- CI. 77891, CI. 15850, C1 45410, CI. 77360, CI. 19140, CI. 15985, CI. 77492, CI. 77491, CI. 77499 CI 77742]. Suitable for vegetarians. Suitable for vegans.

I really don’t think you can go wrong with blushes from Sleek. I previously reviewed Life’s a Peach and I’ve also got a review of Rose Gold coming up (which is almost a dupe for Nars' Orgasm but the colour's just not quite right). So yeh, I quite like them (a lot).

  1. I really like sleek blushes too, I love the blush by 3 palettes, the colours are so pretty and soo pigmented!! If you like peach blush you should check out the VIVO blush in peaches and cream, it's only £4 and I love it!

    1. thanks! I havent heard of them, the blush & highlighter looks lovely too x

  2. Never tried a sleek blush, definitely putting on my wish list now though! That shade really suits you x

    1. thanks! you should definitely give them a go x

  3. What a pretty pink. It looks lovely on you, gives you a nice glow without being too out there. It looks quite intense in the pan but applies a lot softer.
    I agree Sleek blushes are great quality and I like their colour range.

    1. Thank you:) I was a bit worried about how intense it looked in the pan but luckily it turned out lovely. It's a shame Sleek isn't more widely available, they're such good value.

  4. I love that it's so bright. Very pretty xx
