Review: Sleek Blush in Life's a Peach




I love Sleek blushes. They're cheap, highly pigmented and easy to work with, and they come in a generous compact with a huge mirror. What's not to like?
Life's a Peach s no exception to any of the above, and being a pretty, warm orangey-peach, it's the perfect shade for giving your cheeks that summer glow we all crave at this time of year. It might look a bit scary in the pan, but while it is very pigmented and easy to pick up on the brush, it's pretty buildable, giving you options about how you choose to wear it. A light wash of colour is really flattering on bronzed skin, but if you really want to stand out from the crowd then this blush will easily do that job too. 
While it is easy to work with, I must admit that it doesn't pick up on the brush quite as well as some of Sleek's other shades - but saying that, it does blend out more easily than, say, Rose Gold. It's also nice and finely milled, making it silky soft in texture, and wears really well without becoming streaky or patchy.

Left: blended out. Right: Swatched quite heavily. 
(Excuse the hairband mark on my arm in the middle of the blended swatch!)

This has quickly worked its way up in my blush repertoire and is up there in my top three for the summer months. 

Sleek Life's a Peach is available at a bargainous £4.49 from Superdrug.

Have you tried anything from Sleek?
If so, what is your favourite?

  1. Love the Sleek blushes too! I've been eyeing this one for the longest time. And you're right, it looks perfect for summer!
    Love how the blush is matte. That way it's more wearable and you can always add a highlighter after :)

    1. I actually tend to prefer blushes with a slight subtle shimmer, but this one is such a lovely shade that it's still a winner in my eyes. A lot of my highlighters have been made a bit redundant so it's nice to be able to dig them out again and pop them on with this xx

    1. Give them a go, you won't look back - I'd go so far as to say their blushes are the best from a high-street brand, and their Face Form kits are fantastic. xx

  8. Oh this looks very pretty. Basically like CORALista without the shimmer. Darn it, I should've grabbed this when I was still in London! x
