Mirrored Pink

30 March 2013

I like to think of myself as a bit of a mermaid. I've dived with sharks, and to this day, have a Flounder teddy on my bed - and I wonder why I'm single. So, when Sleek Makeup launched their Spring '13 Aqua Collection, cue one heck of a lot of searching of my (three) local Superdrugs.



Mirrored Pink is only my second ever blush from the brand (the first was Rose Gold), but I have to say that I'm incredibly impressed by the texture of Sleek blushers. They're really very smooth - there's no chalkiness whatsoever. In terms of colour, Mirrored Pink is incredibly pigmented. It's a beautiful true bubblegum pink, with cool, almost lilac undertones. When swatched, the worryingly obvious in the pan gold particles disappear, leaving a subtle shimmer which is perfect for Spring/Summer. 

This is definitely the pinkest blush I own, but every time I wear it, I can't help but feel pretty, fresh and girly. It's easy to wear, and I have a feeling it'll be universally flattering. I wouldn't say I'm quite up to the Little Mermaid standards of beauty, but Mirrored Pink makes me feel that little bit closer.

  14. I've been wanting to try a Sleek blush for a while now and always debate between this one lately and Rose Gold. They look beautiful!
