Sleek Blush by 3 in Flame

6/10/2014


Summer is definitely here hence the crisp white and navy theme at the blog. When this sort of hot weather arrives, at first I struggle to adjust my make-up as I'm probably stuck in a rut (blame the job, blame the job) however - downsizing is inevitable. Generally, I use light and natural looking make-up but I want even less on my face as soon as temperatures go over 25°C (that is just how I roll). Base is starting to get almost nonexistent, just a nice face cream with SPF or a light BB/CC cream is enough, eyeshadows are often left out (don't even think of melting eyeliners and eye pencils, nah-hah!) and - only pops of color I prefer during summertime are on my nails, lips and cheeks. I have the perfect pop of color designated to land on your cheek area and it is divine. Sleek Blush by 3 in Flame is a sizzling hot red blush palette which is ridiculously easy to pull off (if you're not an extremely pale beauty).

Ljeto je definitivno stiglo i njemu u cast sam obula blog u cisto bijelo ruho sa mornarskom temom. Cim nam stigne toplo vrijeme sa karakteristicno visokim temperaturama, ispocetka mi je tesko prilagoditi sminku jer sam bice navike (okrivite posao-kuca relaciju) no ipak je smanjenje neizbjezno. Uopsteno preferiram prirodan make-up te rijetko koristim 'tesku' sminku ali cim temperature predju 25°C - odmah dodatno smanjujem kolicinu proizvoda na licu. Baza je prvo mjesto gdje izbacujem visak, vecinom vremena cu ostati samo na kremi sa zastitnim faktorom ili eventualno cu koristiti BB/CC kremu, sjene za oci preskacem (tusevi, olovke za oci? nista od toga) - jedina mjesta gdje ostavljam boju su nokti, usne i jagodice. Ovaj put imam idealnu sitnicu koja ce osvjeziti svake obrascice. Sleek Blush by 3 u nijansi Flame je paleta rumenila vruce crvene boje koju je prilicno lako iznijeti (osim ako ste ljepotica koja njeguje porculanski ten).


You know I love Sleek, who doesn't and what's there not to love? They eyeshadow palettes are superb as they're creamy and pigmented but their blushers are what the brand is globally known for. You can get their mono blushes (I have only one) but I'd advise to go for mono ones only if you're after a particular shade which isn't available in their palettes. Blush palettes, on the other hand, are perfection. Make-up porn - they're that good. Reddish Flame is no exception. Packaging is classic Sleek - compact, minimalist, black and sturdy. Clasp is reliable, no spillage is at risk and we're good to go. You get a total of 20g in this palette, divided in three blushes you get approx 6g per blush (plus-minus the packaging itself). You get a nice mirror inside the lid which is really handy. I am completely aware that this palette seems extremely intimidating as these are very loud, red shades but if you're not of a very pale complexion - you can pull it off. That beings said, I recommend Flame for medium to dark skin tones.

Ako ste upratile moje recenzije, znati cete da volim Sleek - a tko ne voli? Palete sjena za oci su fantasticne zbog kremaste teksture i izvrsne pigmentacije dok su rumenila pak pravi razlog zbog kojeg je ovaj drogerijski make-up brend globalno poznat. Njihova rumenila mozete pronaci u maleckim mono pakovanjima (od kojih posjedujem jedno) ali bih savjetovala kupovinu Sleek mono rumenila u slucaju da vam je za oko zapala nijansa koja nije dijelom neke od paleta. A palete rumenila? To je tek posebna prica i samo cu reci da su perverzija - toliko su dobre. Crvenkasta Flame paleta nije izuzetak. Pakovanje je klasicno za Sleek - kompaktno, minimalisticno, crno i robusno. Kopca je pouzdana, nece biti slucajnog otvaranja u torbici. Ukupno je u paleti sadrzano 20g rumenila sto, ako podijelimo na 3 nijanse, znaci da se po nijansi dobije cca 6g rumenila (uz samu tezinu pakovanja, manje-vise). Unutarnja strana poklopca krije pristojno ogledalo. U potpunosti sam svjesna da kombinacija boja u ovoj paleti djeluje dosta zastrasujuce i na prvu ne bas nosivo - obicno jarke, crvene nijanse izazivaju takva osjecanja i misli. Mislim da, ukoliko vam ten nije porculansko svijetal - mozete iznijeti ova rumenila bez vecih problema. Sa tim na umu, preporucila bih Flame paletu rumenila srednje tamnim i tamnim tonovima koze kojima ce ove nijanse najbolje pristajati.


Shades are (L-R); Molten, Bonfire & Furnace. Molten is a medium deep peachy shade which contains some mild, finelly milled shimmer. However, this shimmer doesn't translate on my skin. It's a beautiful and wearable shade which on me looks like a light bronzer. I wore it yesterday and got tons of compliments as it looks very natural and melts with the skin. Bonfire is the reason to call the firefighters as this blush is insane! It's a wildly loud, punchy, vibrant orangey-red which borderlines on the fine line of bold and obnoxious. It's not for pale or even light medium complexions so this may very well be the real reason why people are scared of thus palette. It isn't the easiest to pull off - I suggest a light hand and a brush like the one from the Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Collection. It's also a bit dusty so layering is the key. Finally, my favorite from the palette - Furnace. This is the shade I wear almost every day now. Furnace is a warm, rich apricot-y coral with obvious reddish tones and a warm metallic finish. By description it should be a disaster but it somehow works perfectly. I am wearing Furnace on photographs below, applied with a very light hand (+LRP CC cream, Bourjois 1 Seconde Volume mascara, Revelique Eyebrow Pencil in Ochre, Bourjois Rouge Edition Shine lipstick in Sunset Peach). You can find this blush palette at sleekmakeup.com and is currently on sale for $7.49. Bargain!

Nijanse sa lijeve na desnu stranu su; Molten, Bonfire i Furnace. Molten je bogata, srednje tamna nijansa breskve koja je krasno nosiva i na meni djeluje kao njezni bronzer. Jucer sam je nosila i pri tome dobila mnostvo komplimenata. Bonfire je istinski razlog zbog koji mnogi ustuknu pred ovom paletom jer je nijansa ludo jarka! Nevjerovatno je upadne, narandzasto-crvene nijanse koja balansira na tankoj niti izmedju hrabrog i napadnog. Nije namijenjena svijetlom tenu pa je cak upitna i za svijetliji 'medium' ten. Nije je lagano iznijeti no preporucujem nanosenje 'laganom' rukom i kist koji slojevito nanosi pigment, poput onog iz Real Techniques Duo-Fiber Collection seta. Takodjer je i teksturom puderasto rumenilo sto dodatno naglasava cinjenicu da je kljuc ispravnog nanosenja u tankim slojevima. Naposlijetku, imamo mog favorita iz ove palete - rumenilo Furnace. Nju sada nosim skoro svaki dan. Radi se o toploj i bogatoj nijansi nektarine, pomalo koralnog stiha i uz definitivno crveni podton + metalik je finisa. Po opisu bi trebala biti nenosiva i katastrofalna nijansa ali iz nekog razloga savrseno funkcionise. Na fotografijama ispod nosim Furnace na jagodicama, naneseno u tankom sloju (+ LRP CC krema je podloga, Bourjois 1 Seconde Volume maskara je na trepkama, Revelique olovka za obrve u nijansi Ochre je popunila obrve a na usnama nosim Bourjois Rouge Edition Shine ruz u nijansi Sunset Peach). Sleek paletu rumenila nijanse Flame mozete pronaci na web stranici sleekmakeup.com i kosta cca 13KM
