Sleek MakeUp Blush in “Rose Gold” and “Pomegranate” – Review and Swatches


Hi pretty ladies! You must have noticed one after another blush post recently on our blog that’s because we have a fair blush collection. We have always been a huge fan of blushes especially when it comes to packaging, colour and texture. Did Sleek MakeUp blushes sustain our scrutiny in every aspect?

Product Claims

Sleek MakeUp Blushers are long lasting and highly pigmented available in a variety of finishes. Each shade glides on smoothly and enables you to create an array of stunning looks. Sleek MakeUp offer a wide range of shades to complement any skin tone, no matter the occasion.

Use a blusher brush or slanted contour brush to gently sweep blush across the apples of your cheeks, building up the colour to your desired finish.

What Do I Think?

The packaging of these blushes live up to the name “Sleek” very well: smooth, silky and feels high end, and they come with a built-in mirror too making it extremely travel-friendly. Talking about the texture of both these blushes, it is soft, smooth and blends very easily with any blush brush. Moreover, the shimmer is finely milled hence there is no fall out. One thing I have noticed about these blushes in particular as compared to the others I have used till date is that brush doesn’t pick up extra product which otherwise you would have to tap off before applying to your face hence there is less to no product wastage and more control over application. Regardless of this fact, they are buildable and stay for good 5 – 6 hours over primer and foundation with minimal fading.



Pomegranate

This is a deep berry blush with strong red undertones and very fine shimmer similar to its base colour. Its colour matches our natural flush therefore it will flatter most of skin tones. Since I have a medium skin tone (NC 25-30) and it does show up on me even if I apply it lightly therefore I like to sculpt my cheek bones with it instead of applying it on the apples, gives my face natural warmth.



Rose Gold

This blush has a neutral pink base colour and very fine and noticeable gold shimmer. Yes you read it right. I too had the idea of it being a warm blush, which it definitely is, but the base colour is not warm on its own. This is actually very genius of Sleek MakepUp; they combined a neutral colour with lots of gold shimmer to balance out the overall warmth. And because of very prominent shimmer it highlights as well. It will flatter medium to light skin tones as the neutral base colour may not show up on darker skin tones leaving its use as a highlighter only for them. Also, I wouldn’t recommend you wearing this blush without a primer if you have large pores as it may accentuate them due to obvious shimmer.
