Sleek Make-Up Honour Blush - Review

To celebrate the 2012 Olympic Games coming to the UK Sleek Make-Up has recently launched a small collection which includes an 12 pan eyeshadow palette (review here) a pout polish and a blush.
All three items are limited edition and are part of the "2012 Limited Edition Collection" which has been affectionately dubbed the Olympic collection on the internet!

Honour is a deep rose gold that had most assuming it would be similar to Sleek Make-Up's Rose Gold blush but it not at all like that due to the intensiveness of the shade and the deep brown bronze leaning Honour has.
I find it to be most similar to Sleek's Muscovado shade which appears in the Sugar trio.
Truthfully I find Honour to be really well pigmented but not a shade that I deem suitable for my skin tone,
if you have a deep skin tone I think this shade would work really well but on light-medium tones even with a 
light hand it is overwhelming and can look muddy.

Sleek Make-Up blushes are soft but not overly so,
they apply with ease but don't break/shatter if like myself you are a little heavy handed.
I found the formula to be easy to apply and blend out with a normal angled blush brush,
there was next to no fall out and as mentioned the shimmer shade has a subtle effect 
- no glitter or gritty finish/feel.
In terms of wear this wore just as any other Sleek MakeUp facial product
and survived a good six hours on un-primed oily skin but when used with primer it lasted a full nine hours.
I rate Sleek Male-Up Blushes quite highly and find them to be one of the best formulas on the high st

Product Summary
Round Up - Three bronze type blush shades in one handy palette.
Best For - In my opinion I have found this trio better suited to those with deeper skin tones.
Pigmentation - Hard to rate as the matte formula is less pigmented than the shimmer one.
Availability - Limited Edition, available from Sleek Make-Up's web store - link  and selected Superdrug stores.

  5. This looks like something i would love

  6. Beautiful and looks just right for my fake skin tone. I have to get it!!!

  7. this shade reminds me sooo much of tom ford's savage blush! Same kinda tones.. I wonder if it's dupe!!

  8. oooh my kinda blusher! Love the colour, although I think I would probably use it more as a bronzer. It's gorgeous! I wish wish the sun would hurry up and come out as it would be perfect for it. :)

  9. I may be more of a matte girl but this shade is gorgeous and God only knows how much of a Sleek blush fangirl I am. :)

  10. This would make me look like a clown! Haha. It does look pretty though, so I'll be taking a look at their other products, thanks for sharing :)

  11. really pretty shade, not sure how it'd suit my skin though.
