I can’t remember if it was last year, or the one before that, when I was first heard of Sleek MakeUP… But I do recall reading about the brand on Magali’s blog, Blue Skies, Calm Seas & Me – and it was the blush (a very warm orange tint) that she talked about, there. Because it seemed like an unusual choice yet somehow a really flattering shade for your skin (read the full post on Em’s blog, and you will know what I mean), I thought about ordering the blush for a good, long time. Still haven’t, but recently when I was wasting time on the interwebz and going through their website, I spotted this other beautiful shade!
Okay, so at first sight, Antique (yep, that’s the name of the shade – don’t you love it more?) does appear to be rather dull but definitely earthy… I found a few reviews that were written online, and it seemed like a really, really mellow shade. The thing is that it’s kind of like a blend between earthy and mauve tones, and appears to possess faint traces of shimmer (you know how much I like shiny body and face powders)… From the blog posts that I read and pictures seen, it does look incredible on most skin tones, and ooh, it would be such a dreamy pick for summer; it’s basic, rosy, soft, understated. I WANT TO ORDER IT! (But restraining myself, just for now, SIGH.)
P.S. I don’t think it’s too expensive for $6.99 but I am not sure what it would be like totally, when you take into account its shipping charges? Luxola does not have this shade (DAMN!) though they do retail most of the other shades (talking specifically about their blush powders) from Sleek MakeUP on their website.
