Adding a touch of colour to cheeks can mean the difference between a flat complexion and a healthy glow. Dabbing on a delicate shade of coral during these transitional weeks can help boost your natural colour and add a dash of holiday health, without the need to dive straight into bronzer. I love coral blushers, reaching for them more often than a traditional peach shade because they appear much more natural and subtle on the skin. Getting a great shade that blends well, works with your natural skintone and lasts can be troublesome – which is why brands such as NARS do so well when it comes to shifting blushers. However, Sleek have managed to nail the coral trend in this trio blush palette for a much more affordable price of £9.99… Plus the quality is completely comparable to their more expensive counterparts.
The three colours include an orange-coral shade that is fabulous for boosting a natural glow or touch of tan, a peach-gold colour that combines a highlighting tone that catches the light, as well as a darker coral-pink shade for year-round wear. The pigments are incredibly strong, so you do need to apply a little at a time and build up the look until you’re happy with the result; the key is to blend the colour into your base and keep buffing in a little at a time. All three blushers are silky smooth to the touch and don’t leave a cakey feeling or result on the skin. I love not only the blushers themselves, but the super sleek and elegant pack they come in – especially as it even includes a mirror for touch-ups on the go; it’s pretty incredible to see a high quality product for such an affordable price. This is definitely a great summer buy that you’ll be reaching for until the leaves turn brown.
The Sleek Blush By 3 Trio in ‘Lace’ is available in Boots, Superdrug and online priced £9.99
