Sleek – Santorini Blush

Sleek – Santorini Blush
Oh my lord this is bright!
The Santorini Blush is part of the summery Mediterranean collection which was launched on the 6th June. 

When compared side by side to Sleek’s other bright pink offering, you can see the difference isn’t quite so vast but on use, it becomes shockingly apparent. I had initially thought there wasn’t going to be that much difference but I sure was wrong!

The dolly pink shade is a nice buildable bold pink, it’s forgiving and super blendable. Santorini on the other hand is bold, super pigmented tricky customer.

From swatching, I knew I’d have to have a very gentle hand to get this look to work without looking like Aunt Sally from Worzel Gummidge!!!
With one very light tap of the blusher brush on the pan, you are rewarded with a super bold flush of colour that is quite hard to blend. It certainly does need blending to make it look wearable.

I’d definitely rate this as a blusher for the summer as you’d need a tan to pull this off, or it’s perfectly suited to the more olive + darker skinned ladies. I think you’d look a little clown-ish if you wore this on pale skin, there’s only so much blending you can do! That might be your thing of course!
For a highstreet brand, the pigmentation and longevity is just astounding, especially considering the price!!
