The New Sleek Rose Gold.....?

If you are a regular reader you will know I rave about Sleek blushers, they are the most amazing value for money blushers that I have ever come across, they are a mere £4.59, last forever, stay put all day long and have fantastic pigmentation.

Many of you will know that Sleek blush in shade Rose Gold is renowned for being a dupe for Nars Orgasm which costs £21.50 (I reviewed it quite some time a go HERE), so I bought Rose Gold and use it all of the time.

This morning my lovely postman delivered a package, I didn't have a clue what it was as I couldn't remember ordering anything so I ripped it open to find lots of Sleek goodies which I then remembered was a free gift with a magazine subscription (I will investigate whether this magazine sub is still live and post about it tomorrow if it is) and inside was s Sleek Rose Gold blush.

I am more than happy to have two Rose Golds as I love the colour but when I opened it up I noticed a huge difference in the shade, I checked the back of each blush and they both state 'Rose Gold 926'.....


The top blush is my original Rose Gold and the Nars Orgasm dupe, it's a burnt orange/coral with gold flecks in, very pretty, and below is the new Rose Gold in new packaging which is also a beautiful shade but a lot 'pinker' than the top blush as you can see. So I decided to swatch the two to see if there was a big difference when on the skin.....


Well as you can see there is!

The 'new' Rose Gold is most definitely pink based with a slight shimmer to it and it really reminds me of the limited edition blush Sleek bought out a while a go from the Aqua Collection.

I adore the new shade (as a shade itself) but a bit disappointed that when I run out of my original Rose Gold I won't be able to get hold of it again.

Do you own either of these blushers (new or old) and does anyone know when these changed, maybe I missed the boat when they changed it, anyway, if I did I thought I would write this post anyway to show you the difference between the two.

Do you love Sleek blushers as much as me (I think I have 5 of them now)?




  1. Gosh what a difference. Very odd. I think they should have named it something else as it is not the same as the old Rose Gold Blush at all

  2. Surprise deliveries are always the best :)
    It is annoying when your favourite shade of something changes or gets discontinued, I hope you get to like the new shade or find something else similar

  3. Oh no this is disappointing! The original Rose Gold is my go to blush! I'll be gutted when it runs out now! Thanks for pointing this out - I wouldn't have known otherwise!

    1. I have asked sleek when this happened but I haven't had a reply as yet.


  4. That is so odd! It's a completely different blush! x

  5. That's such a shame because I love my Rose Gold Blush too.
    They are not even remotely similar...
