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