Get Cheeky!

Oblivious to my connection with Sportsgirl cosmetics, I was surprised when I realised the other day that the bulk of my 'favourite' products come from the high street store. I'm not talking flash in the pan favourites, I mean deep down heart racing month after month favourites.
Favourite eye shadows? Sportsgirl
One of my top two lip gloss varieties? Sportsgirl
Favourite highlighter/blush? Sportsgirl
Almost every cosmetic item I've bought from the chain store has been a winner, and 'Get Cheeky!' is no exception. With all of the aforementioned products being discontinued (blush included) I decided it was time to hit up Sportsgirl for a alternate (the blush use is rationed, lest I hit pan, in which case I think my heart will shatter)
I'd seen this blush/cheek and eye shimmer before, and thought it similar to the favourite of old.
"Just one stroke of GET CHEEKY will perk your complexion up in an instant.

 A pearlescent mix of a light bronze, light pink and a plummy shade of pink, this can be built up and used as a blush or used as a highlight underneath another shade. Lasting power is great, and though it isn't as shimmery as the first blush I fell in love with it, it's up there in the shimmer stakes. I haven't tried it out on the eyes yet, so I can't comment on the 'eye shimmer' aspect of it all.

I use a blush brush swirled over all of the shades for my cheeks, and I've loved the effect it gives me. The compact is sturdy and cute, and the pattern is effective and nice to look at. Yet another winner for Sportsgirl in the 'awesome cosmetics' stakes, I'm happy to have purchased this. I'll be sharing some more of my Sportsgirl favourites in upcoming posts, so look out for them!
Get Cheeky! retails for $9.95 and is available at Sportsgirl Australia Wide

Product was purchased with my own cashola, I have no affiliation with Sportsgirl (apart from loving them sick!)


  1. Why have I not seen this in perth sportsgirls? GNAAARAGRAARGH. I have an obligation to track this down, as a Sportsgirl Fan of the Month (tm).

  2. I love Sportsgirl cosmetics as well, you can find some really nice products and when they're on sale they're just unbelievably cheap. I pick up the little palettes on sale to give as gifts to my cousins. I'd love to feature them on my blog more but everything I have from them is discontinued.

  3. I have this blush and I think it's beautiful. I wear it everyday, so natural but so pretty at the same time!

  4. Cute. I have a few bits and pieces from Sportsgirl, and for the price, they're pretty amazing. (:

  5. Suzanne- It's so frustrating when certain stores miss out! This has been around in my Sportsgirls for awhile now...=S

    Megan-the sales are awesome, but it's a double edged sword because it means the gorgeous prodz are being discontinued. I will be reviewing my discontinued loot, in the hopes that the Sportsgirl fairies will take note and make them again.

    Karagh- I find it really natural too! Not what I was expecting, but I really like that it's natural

    Michelle- Even at full price, everything is so well priced there!

  6. It looks gorgeous! Wow, impressed by the swatches and the price :) Will have to look into Sportsgirl cosmetics!

  7. So cute! I love swatching their stuff in store, everything's so shimmery and pretty :)

  8. Thanks Su!I love their stuff, check it out and tell me what you think!
    Michelle- I agree, I go swatch mad in there but love that even though things are shimmery, they're still really wearable=)

  9. I have this and the Peach one and I'm obsessed with both of them. They give such a lovely glow (no obnoxious shimmer!) and they're just so effortless and easy to apply. Quite hard to overdo imo ^__^ They need more shades in this line, and I will buy all of them in a heartbeat.

  10. I haven't seen the Peach one! I haven't had a proper look though, I will next time thanks=)
    I am a shimmer lover and I think this is more glow, I agree, I adore it and it's nicer when I pair it with a shimmery eye-sometimes it can look too much with both
