Beauty On A Budget : Sleek Blushes

Guys did you notice the new “related posts” widget floating at the end of each post? It’s the most unreliable thing ever lol. I rearranged my tags so I could share with you other similar entries that you may find helpful or interesting, but somehow it keeps suggesting the actual post itself! It doesn’t seem to suggest other posts accordingly. I’ll find a way to fix this tho, hopefully soon!

Anyway, today I’d like you to show you some of my best bargain finds. Sleek makes super pigmented, high-end quality blushes and sells them for just the right price. Not too cheap and not nearly as expensive as the MAC blushes. And what’s fascinating about it is that some Sleek Blushes are even better than some MAC ones.


Beauty On A Budget

I started out with three shades; there’s Flamingo a.k.a. the brightest pink blush I’ve ever owned. It can be applied lightly but even then the shade still stands out. This was my fix for a certain Tarte blush craving (I think it was with the shade Amused). I knew I wouldn’t use such a bright color often but I wanted one in my drawer just in case, so I made a money-saving move and went after the cheaper dupe instead.

Mirrored Pink is an iridescent fairy pink blush. If I was my 10-year-old self I’d probably smother this all over my face… arms… and legs (I actually did this with art glitters back in preschool cause I wanted to be Tink! Way too much imagination going on there). I just wish it lasted longer on my cheeks like the other shades, which practically stays put for an entire day. BTW this is a limited edition blush, but I know a shop that still sells it, will link below!

Pomegranate is surprisingly my favorite among all of them. It’s too purple and darker than what I’m used to on the pan, but it turns into this beautiful burgundy shade with purple micro shimmers in it when applied. Quite unique if you ask me! Plus it looks similar to a blush Miranda Kerr (favorite model) wore on some red carpet events.


Where To Find Sleek Makeup

What do you think? Have you seen the other shades? I’ve heard mostly of Rosegold, which is known to be a dupe for Nars Orgasm. I got these blushes online at Beauty Corner PH for P450 (shipping fee not included, they have Mirrored Pink in stock), and at Luxola for P390 to P520 (free shipping).

And guys check out Luxola if you haven’t. I’ve saved more or less P2500 from shopping there lately. It’s a Singaporean shop but they have free door-to-door shipping to the Philippines (they ship to other countries as well). They also offer a good reward point system for loyal shoppers, affiliate program, and practically have 15% to 30% discount promos every week!
