Sleek blushes Pomegranate and Sunrise – Swatch

Ηello Beauties!

*Greek version here*

Ι had so many ideas (actually written down) about what post to make, but in the end, I don’t make any post at all. I think my time won’t be enough, and I m like ”Okay, I ll do it tommorow”

This is my first contact with Sleek products, but surely not the last. Some days ago, I ordered the ”Oh-so-special” eyeshadow pallete from Amazon.co.uk, and I am looking forward to have it, and swatch it of course.

So days ago, Irish beauty blogger  Julie , had a blog sale, and was selling , among others, 2 Sleek blushes. One was never used, the other just swatched, price was great so I bought them, and got them very soon 🙂

But this particular swatch got on my nerves, honestly. I might do something wrong, but I can’t get correct photos. I put too much of blush in my cheeks, so much that its impossible to get out of house like this, and in photos its like not wearing. Same happened with my ELF  swatches some time ago, and that time too, I wore lots of blush, enough to look like a clown

Anyway, I did my best. Sleek blushes have a great pigmentation, and if you are more talented in makeup like me, you are going to love it.

Pomegrante is a mauve-ish one with shimmer, and a sunrise is a bronzer-type with shimmer, although when swatched, the pomegranate has a more orango-redish tone.

   

 

Here is a double swatch, one with one wipe, and the other with two.

 

(Top : sunrise , bottom : Pomegranate)                                                   (Left : sunrise – Right : Pomegranate)

Overall, I think that they are amazing blushes.

E.l.f Blushes = Tickled Pink and Candid Coral

Hello beauties.

Here I am. I decided to make a blush swatch, I am not sure if I made the right decision though.

My camera is not the best, and the shades I chose are very light (I am not very good in applying blush, so I don’t buy darker shades, I am afraid to be a clown, actually).

So I decided to swatch my new – beautiful blushes – of Elf.

Candid Coral, a corl with gold shimmer blush, also known as a good dupe of Nars Orgasm and Tickled Pink, a very very fresh and beautiful pink.

So here they are…

Left is Candid Coral, right is Tickled Pink (beautiful, aren’t they)

  .

I had a really hard time to swatch them in my arm, so this is the best I could do

Candid Coral is the one in the top, and tickled pink the one in the bottom

And now, show time…

I don’t think you have seen my fugly face yet, so here I am . Yes, I am wearing my PJs, yes, with no other make up one, yes, my brows are not fulle plucked (I m trying to make them ticker actually) and yes, with jungle hair. So please be polite.

(Left ones are Tickled Pink,left ones are tickled Pink, or easiest method, when you see my ear ring, then its tickled pink)

And here is with sun light, but in my room

 

Bottomline, I love them. Its what I need. I don’t like very strong colors, I can’t work with them. Also with my skin tone, any strong color will appear so fake, and I prefer natural blushing. And to be honest, the photos doesn’t show how pigmented they really are. Coz they are way more than what you see here

What do you think?

Lots of love beauties.
