Sleek Blusher | Review

Sleek Blush in Pomegranate

When it comes to blushers, many drugstore brands seem to not do an amazing job in creating something that is highly pigmented but also long-lasting enough for daily use. Zoella has been raving about Sleek blushes recently, so naturally, I had to buy one for myself and see how it checks out.

Beautiful Sleek Blusher in Pomegranate Makeup review

The subtle black packaging seems pretty good quality and gives it a really ‘sleek’ look (mind the pun). Its also a nice size that makes it fine for travelling with but also contains lots of product so I don't think I'll be hitting pan anytime soon. It also has a cool little mirror, a rareity in products these days! It makes it great for any touch-ups in the car and saves you having to carry a little mirror too.

To apply, you just need a light hand and I recommend a good blusher brush as cheap ones tend to get too much product on which can give you a clown-like appearence if your not careful!
As soon as it touches your cheeks you can see the difference, and what I love about it is you can build it up as much as you like. I love this shade as it gives the perfect flushed look I desire, although I found that the other shades are just as beautiful. The shade Flushed is perfect for a more dramatic evening look, whilst Rose Gold is claimed to be a dupe for Nars Orgasm and has a gorgeous natural shimmer to it that looks good on all skin tones.

Depending on how much you apply, the lasting power can vary but it seems to stay on for most of the day, leaving a faded look by the evening. I didn't expect amazing results as it doesn't seem to matter what blush I choose, it is usually the first product to disappear off my face after a long day! For the price though, I still think its worth it even if it means touching it up once or twice throughout the day if you wish to maintain that intense look. For people who can't afford the high-end blushes like Nars, this is a great dupe that I would definetly recommend.
