Sleek 'Rose Gold' vs Dainty Doll 'You Are My Sunshine' ♡

(top - Dainty Doll, bottom - Sleek)

I've wanted to try 'Rose Gold' by Sleek for such a long time, but as my Superdrug doesn't stock Sleek anymore, I decided to wait until there was an opportunity to get free online delivery. When it arrived, I could help but notice how similar it looked to a blusher that I already own, 'You Are My Sunshine' from the Dainty Doll range.

In the pan, they look almost exactly the same as they are both quite coral-y pinks with a lot of shimmer, which looks beautiful in the sunlight. When swatched, 'Rose Gold' is actually a bit more of a darker pink, whereas 'You Are My Sunshine' has more of a light, orange tone. Both products have fantastic pigmentation, but i'd have to say that Sleek has the slight edge as it didn't take as many tries to get a decent swatch. I feel like the Dainty Doll blush is a bit softer and nicer to apply, although the powder is the tiniest bit more chalky. Both products have a gorgeous golden shimmer that looks so beautiful, especially when the sun hits it.

At the moment, i'd have to say that the Sleek blusher is my favourite, but I think that is purely because it is new to me and it is a product that I have been lusting after for a long time. I don't think that one blusher is marginally better than the other, as both are of fantastic quality and they are two similar yet beautiful shades. I will definitely continue to use both of these products.

'You Are My Sunshine' from the Dainty Doll range can be found here.
