Sleek Rose Gold Blush & Contour Kit | First Impressions


Just a quick post from me to share two things that I finally got my hands on today. I mentioned in a blog post here that I've been searching for Sleek's Rose Gold blush for months now. Every time I'm in town I always check Superdrug in the vain hope that it will be there, it never is. For some reason I can't find it on the Superdrug website and it always seemed to be sold out on Sleek's website (I just checked now and it's actually available).

I'd considered getting the blush palette in 'Lace' which has 'Guipere' in it, which seems to be very similar. No Superdrug I've been in (three) has sold these and I've never gotten around to ordering it online- I just checked the Sleek website and it's actually sold out.

I was so sick of not being able to find it that I'd even wondered if they'd let me just buy the tester of 'Rose Gold' in Superdrug..

I think someone else may have just got fed up of it always being out of stock, as the tester was missing when I went in today. However, in the 'Rose Gold' section there was a blush! I didn't get my hopes up as I thought someone might have left a different one in its place. But no, it was the real deal. It was also the only one left!

I then checked the contour section, my shade 'light' is always sold out wherever I look. But today they had one in stock. So I grabbed it. I never even really wanted it that much, but when I could never find it for months on end, I decided needed it. Ha! Well, I thought I should probably just grab it in case I can never find it again. I felt like fate was on my side today, and I didn't want to disappoint fate by rejecting what it had given me. GOOD GRIEF, the absolute crap I will tell myself to justify buying something!!

Now, here are my photos of my lovely new purchases and a couple of swatches. I won't go in depth about the products, but you can read a great review of 'Rose Gold' with a compairson to 'NARS Orgasm' here and the contour kit here if you wish!






They both seem like nice products. They are not chalky, have great pigmentation and are very nice colours. I honestly do not need another bronzer or highlighter, but I think they might double up nicely as eyeshadows.. again, just justifying buying unnecessary beauty products.

So, if you've been searching high and low either of these products like I have, now might be the time to look.. again!

    1. Thanks :) I don't own a whole lot of their products but what I do have seems to be quite good. I got the matte palette recently though and there is so much fall out from it, not good. But I don't know if their other palettes are like that. They definitely have a good selection of blushers though :) x

  2. I so want to try Rose Gold! I can never find it at my Superdrug either.
    It looks quite similar to benefit's coralista-which I have, but it's quite expensive! xo

    1. I've heard lots of good good things about Coralista but I've never really seen it, but I just clicked on your blog and saw it there :) it looks really nice and similar. I was starting to believe 'rose gold' secretly didn't exist until I saw it today so had to grab it! X

  3. I've been wanting the contour kit for ages too! I'll have to try and hunt one down. And that Rose Gold blush looks like it'd be so pretty for summer! x

    1. I can't believe how difficult the contour kit is to track down, or maybe I'm just unlucky with the Superdrugs I go to? And yes, I'm hoping I can pull this colour off in the summer, shimmery blush seems like a terrifying concept to me. eek! x

  5. I've been on the hunt for the Rose Gold blush too and had the same problem as you! Went it to Superdrug and there was one left and I grabbed it! I haven't worn it yet but I can already tell I will love it! I really want to try the Contour kit too! Just found your blog on Hello Cotton and love it! :)
