Think Pink with Sleek Barekissed Illuminator

As a pink lover I adore finding new pink items to share for my “Think Pink” posts. Sleek MakeUP added to my pink collection with their Barekissed Illuminator in Casablanca. As you know everything lately has taken a turn to illumination and highlighting so the timing of this beauty is perfect.

Barekissed Illuminators ($13.49) come in a glass pump that is enough to last me for ages (30 mL, 1.014 fl oz.) and are available in 4 shades. With Casablanca it’s like they came into my house to check out my favorite colors since this radiant pink is perfect. Other shades are Cuba which appears to be the peach version of mine, Monaco a luminous cream, and Pompeii a bronze.

The Barekissed Illuminators are meant to enhance your complexion. They contain light reflecting pigments that give a lustrous shine without a drop of glitter or shimmer. I’ve used it in four ways so far.

1. Directly on my cheeks as a blush under my blush. I’ll dab this on with my fingers where I want my blush to be. Then once it’s dried down I’ll put a powder or cream blush over it. I love it this way when I’m thinking pink since it makes any blush last and last.

2. I’ll mix some in with my foundation for an all over brightening. This works especially well for me with some of my warmer shades. I don’t notice the pink but I do notice how much more alive my skin looks.

3.  Put this wherever you’d apply a highlighter to brighten your skin. It’s great on top of my cheekbones, a little down the bridge of my nose, and just above my eyebrows. I always make sure to blend well so it’s not obvious, just a hint of color for that great luminosity.

4.  After applying an eyeshadow primer, I’ll dab a drop of Sleek Barekissed Illuminator in Casablanca on top. I usually keep it on my browbone where it adds a whisper of pink in a secret way. No one would guess that’s what makes my eyes glisten just a bit.

These Illuminators are a great alternative to powder highlighters because they give you the same effect without any powder or powdery residue. As I mentioned they aren’t glittery or shimmery so even those of us with large pores can use these with ease. It’s not portable like a powder highlighter would be but I’m okay with that because I rarely touch up anything other than my lips when I’m out.

Now that Sleek sells to us in the U.S. there’s just so much to love. Shipping is also free with a $35 order and it’s so easy to find $35 worth of amazing products to buy from them. You also get a 10% off code when you sign up for their emails making it that much more affordable.

Sleek MakeUP is making some of my dreams come true with their fabulous and affordable products. What shade would you choose for your Barekissed Illuminator? — Marcia

    I didn’t know Sleek had such a product! The packaging is very pretty, but I think Cuba or Monaco would be more suited to me than Casablanca.
