Sleek is a UK-based beauty brand that can be purchased by US customers online. The company’s line of blushes offers 10 colors total. This review is for the blush in the color Flamingo–a bright, matte, flamingo-colored pink.
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.
Flamingo has great pigmentation and a formula that isn’t soft but also isn’t stiff or dry. This shade leaves a satin finish to the skin. The color leaves a subtle sheen on the skin without being shimmery or glittery.
There is no need to pack on this color or even use the normal amount of blush you otherwise would. The color is strong enough that a light layer of powder will tint the cheeks noticeably. The color doesn’t have any trouble lasing through the day without fading or becoming patchy.
Ease of Use: 9/10
The powder glides onto the skin nicely but you should use a very light hand and gradually build up the color, otherwise it will look clownish. I’d suggest applying the blush with a fan brush.
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.
