Blush Combo Of The Week: Natio & Sleek MakeUP

Like most of the beauty bloggers I know, blushers are a big weakness for us all. I've accumulated quite a few over the last few months and after using them a good few times, I decided to mix them up by layering them on top of each other. I took my old favourite blusher, Sleek MakeUP's Rose Gold and paired it with a new love of mine by Natio called Peach Glow.

I've been wearing Peach Glow by Natio for a few weeks now but it only dawned on me the other day that I should try pairing it with another blusher to give it a bit more 'oomph' without altering the colour too much.

This is what both shades look like swatched seperately.
I absolutely love Sleek MakeUP's Rose Gold blusher but wearing it every day can be a bit much because of the gold shimmer running through it so by pairing it with Peach Glow by Natio, I'm able to tone it down a touch which is why it works so well.

Blended together:
Once blended together, it doesn't really look like anything special and for a moment I actually thought it looked strangely similar to Benefit Bella Bamba but it definitely doesn't look the same once applied to the cheek.

Applied:
Do you see what I mean about it not looking like Bella Bamba? The Natio and Sleek MakeUP combo is definitely more peachy so really compliments my skintone. The shimmer from the Sleek blush acts as a highlight as well as adding an extra something to the combo whereas the flat colour of the Natio blush adds the base colour to the cheek. I love it!

This is what the rest of the mug looked like:
FYI, my makeup looks a bit worn out because by this point I had wandered around Westfield for about 2 and a half hours which is a mission in itself!

Products used:
- Bobbi Brown Natural Finish Long Lasting Foundation in 4.5 Warm Natural
- Bobbi Brown Corrector in Bisque
- Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer in Natural
- Bare Minerals Flawless Definition Curl & Lengthen Mascara - Review to follow soon

The Natio blusher can be purchased from Debenhams online or in-store and the Sleek blusher is non-existent now so you might have to hunt that down on eBay!

What do you think? Are you inspired to layer your favourite products to see what you get? Let me know!

Until next time...
