A highly pigmented blusher to brighten and define cheekbones. The silky-fine formulation provides long lasting blusher which helps to create a subtle but radiant cheek area.
Sleek is a UK-based beauty brand. The company’s line of blushes offers 10 colors total. This review is for the blush in the color Pomegranate.
Sleek’s blushes come in flat, rectangular compacts with rubbery plastic packaging. The compacts conveniently have a mirror inside the lid. These are smaller than you might expect, at around 2.5-by-1.5 inches. The compact is very lightweight yet durable, making it perfect for traveling with. It won’t take up much room but will withstand potential tossing around in your luggage.
Pomegranate is an absolutely stunning color. At its base, it is a rich cranberry color. The base color is then mixed with lighter pink shimmers. You get intense pigmentation out of the blush and, best of all, a duo-chromed effect that reminds me somewhat of Cargo’s PlantLove blush in Begonia. Most importantly, this is a color that will work for light and dark skin. On pale skin, a light application will give your cheeks that winter-flushed color. On dark skin, this rich berry will give the cheeks a gorgeous sheen and vibrancy.
The formula is also wonderful. It is not powdery at all and blends nicely over the skin. It has good lasting power and did not fade throughout the workday.
Ease of Use: 10/10
The pigmentation is rich and the formula blends beautifully. If you like only a hint of blush color, tap your brush very lightly on the pan or use a stippling brush for a softer application.
Though the compact is small, you get a full 8 grams of beautiful blush for $6.50! This blush contains more product than the average drugstore compact.
I never thought the day would come when I would give a product a perfect score. But here it is!
