I bought this instead of NARS Orgasm as I'd heard so many good things about it. I love the way it looks on my skin and it blends well with my soft and gentle highlight from MAC. It gives a beautiful summery glow to the skin but I wouldn't recommend it if you don't like blushes with shimmer in as it's very shimmery! I was pleasantly surprised by just how good this blush is and the packaging looks so expensive and it has it's own mirror and compact which I love! All of the sleek blushes are such good quality and value for money. Definitely worth a purchase!
This is good stuff.
I find that it's less pigmented than my previous Clinique blush, but I think that's a good thing because I can control it better, especially during the winter when I'm paler. Anyway, I swirl my brush in it and apply it and it leaves the most flattering rose tint on the cheeks with a gold undertone, almost like a shimmer.
Also, it's really cheap and the packaging is quite elegant and sturdy considering it cost under a fiver.
Overall, it gets the thumbs up for me, and I would definitely repurchase.
Let's address the elephant in the room and get down to the similarities that this blush has with NARS Orgasm. For the longest time I held off on buying Orgasm however eventually I received a trial size and while it does have its own charm I like Rose Gold much better. I think that the texture is creamier, the pigmentation is better, and I also like the overall color more. Looking at them in the pan they look extremely similar; pink with gold shimmer, however when swatched RG comes out looking much more pink while O pulls more coral. I find that I gravitate much more towards this blush than the NARS one and the inexpensive price is definitely another tally in Sleek's favor.
It is very festive, with the gold shimmers so I use it only for the special occasions. It is very nicely pigmented and the packaging is so cute, with the little mirror - but hard to open!
I have never tried Nars' "Orgasm" but I guess that at this point every make-up lover out there knows this is a perfect alternative at a very affordable price. It lasts a lot of time (at least on my skin), it has a great price and the shade is soooo pretty! A pink rose with lots of gold shimmer that is really pigmented. I personally apply quite a lot of blush because I like the "doll" look it gives me, but if you're not into that the blush is very buildable. This is my favorite shade from the range but the other colors are also very nice, ranging from brown to red for all complexions. I really recommend Sleek to you ladies. Quality products at an amazing price!
I bought it out of curiosity because of its resemblance with Nars Orgasm and now it is one of my favorite blushes.
The color is a soft rosy medium pink with an abundant gold shimmer.
On the cheeks it leaves more gold then pink but the gold it is is not chunky glitter, its soft micro-particles and the finish is an amazing golden shimmer that stays exactly where you place it.
The pigmentation is just perfect, not too pigmented, not too sheer. You can also use it as a highlighter.
And you get 8 grams of product that will last you a good period of time for an amazing price.
I honestly recommend it for everyone. I believe this is a blush that would work perfectly for all skin tones.
I will without a doubt repurchase it, color and finish are divine and the quality is irreproachable. Its a great deal overall.
Love the color but it is WAYYYY too shimmery. My face was a disco ball!
Wow! What a gorgeous blush! Rose gold is a beautiful pink/coral with plenty of gold shimmer in it so be warned if you prefer matte blushes. It gives my cheeks a lovely healthy colour and glow. Sleek makeup is fantastic, I already have Pixie Pink & Coral and plan to purchase all colours :)
*Very pigmented, only a small amount needed.
*Excellent value for money as you get plenty of product.
*The packaging is sophisticated and expensive looking, not cheap, flimsy plastic.
*Stunning range of colours that will suit any skintone.
*It doesn't sink into pores on my cheeks like other blushes do.
I have absolutely no cons. Forget Nars Orgasm, this is the blush you need!!
I didn't review this yet!?! OMG I am in LOVE!!!! I actually bought Nars Orgasm with a gift card and was excited, as it swatched lightly and nice in the store and of course I had been eyeing it. However, when I got home to compare it, it was *so* similar to my Nyx Pinched. Maybe it's not exact, but it was close enough for me that it wasn't worth having them be so similar for $30. Also it's kind of pinky underneath all that shimmer and even though it's a nice warm coral pink, I don't look so great in such a bright pink and only use it occasionally. I had seen pictures of Sleek Rose Gold and even found it online for a pretty decent price, including shipping. But I asked a friend who was in England at the time if he could pick it up. He actually had a bit of trouble finding it, lol, but got it for about the same price. And since it was a pain for him, he got me two! Good friend. :) I am so super happy about this blush. I find it to be very shimmery and very gold, yes, but it does have color under it. It is a coral-y pink, similar to Orgasm but much less obvious pink. I find it easier to blend and to not overdo. Yes you have to build it up but since it's so affordable and easy to find online, I so don't mind that. It's clear you are wearing blush, but I find it to be a more 'natural' type of flush than Orgasm is, if that makes sense. Like it's as if you have nice cheeks and the gold is a highlighter but the color of the blush underneath is a healthy color, not clownish imo. I hope you guys try it, it instantly became a favorite! :D
I like this product. Everyone talks about it being a good dupe for Nars Orgasm. I did try Nars orgasm and I have to agree that they are very very alike!Rose Gold is shimmery. It has just the right amount of shimmer for me- but obviously shimmer is a personal preference. Some love it some hate it and prefer matte. Avoid if you hate shimmer!! Colour payoff is nice. Not too much if you're heavy handed, but has some level of pigment. It blends nicely too. For the price you really can't complain. It's great value for money compared to other blushers.
