A Valentine scandal...

I know you have already been bombarded with lots of information about Sleek's Stiletto Collection for Valentines, so I'll keep it simple for you guys. 

I have a Blush from the collection called Scandalous. Now keep calm ladies, keep calm. I know its red but trust me its workable. It looks frightening in the pan but on application is a translucent red that mimics a natural flush. 

Can you see the translucent finish once blended?

Avoid this if you
- are pasty white
- have a lot of pink undertone
- have naturally flushed cheeks
- don't have a stippling brush

Now I personally LOVE it to bits, as I know I will never ever be able to find such a colour for the price EVER. 

Rumours say that it's a dupe for Nars Exibit Blush but with less orange to it and I think no different too. What say?

I also have the scrumptious Pout Polish from the collection in Scandal. This one is not as scary as the blusher as it has some pink in it = easily wearable.

In short, it puts MAC's tinted lip conditioners to shame. Its hydrating, its long wearing and its got the pigmentation of a lipstick. 

And an FOTD to show you that these products can actually be worn you know...

Both the products are limited edition and will be available till 16th of February. I would get both the products but If I had to choose one, it would be the blusher. How often do you come across a red blush eh?

You can buy these from sleekmakeup.com and Superdrug.

They look great on you! I tested these and quite liked how the blush looked, not as scary as I initially thought.

Hi, i have this blush, but think im a little heavy handed with it. What stippling brush do you use? Also what are you wearing on your face- it is flawless. I need complete breaksdown lol x Thanks

Shifa this looks so great on you, but i dunno if ill ever be able to wear it properly..btw yr hair looks so good in the pics

@Kimberley - I use Sigma's stippling brush. Tap off the excess product from the brush on the back of your hand and then try stippling with what's left on the brush. Also stop the blusher going any further from the centre of the eyeball. This way the effect is not in your face.

I'm wearing MAC's Face and Body foundation & Select Cover Concealer topped up with Rimmels Stay Matte powder. Hope it helps :)

@PeachesandBlush - Thanks! I've started crimping my hair using straighteners these days and I like the effect too :)
