Review: Sleek Makeup LE Mediterranean Collection - Santorini Blush

This is the blush from Sleek's Limited Edition Mediterranean Collection which was released this summer. To read an overview post please click here. It cost £4.29 for 8g from Superdrug and is an amazing blush for summer - I really like it as you can already tell...

Ther packaging is very sleek, as per usual and is very pretty with the addition of the Mediterranean artwork. It includes a mirror on the opposite side of the blush which I love with all Sleek blushes, sometimes I forget my mirror in another bag or at home and having a mirror about is so useful. The pigmentation on this blush is very high, one swipe results in a very pigmented swatch, so very little is required for both cheeks. The texture is soft and blendable, which I think is an absolute neccessity due to the pigmentation! The blush wears on me without fading for at least 8 hours. A lovely rosy bright pink colour is remains on my cheeks throughout the day, blended well it appears very natural. I use a blush brush, either from Mac or ELF and both work well for ease of application.

Swipe on left, blended swatch on right.

As long as you're not put off by the very bright colour I do think you'll find this to be a lovely blush for summer - even though I don't feel it visited us here this year...I wouldn't repurchase this simply because I don't think I'll ever finish it! In terms of value you do receive a lot of good quality product for a relatively low price, another thing I'm happy with!

  1. I must admit after seeing the bright colour I was a little put off but the product once blended looks great, I don't actually own any sleek products but I am tempted to buy this one!
