Sleek Makeup Blush Pomegranate Review, Swatches and FOTD
By Contributor: Lee
I have a weakness for all things raspberry. Be it Jelly, Froyo, Raspberry Pink lippies or in my strongest love- Blushes! Even though I have an overflowing blushers drawers (yeah I had to assign a full drawer to my desire) I still cant resist buying every raspberry pink blush that comes in my line of sight. So today’s review and swatches are on Sleek Pomegranate powder blush.
Sleek Claims: Our 10 shade strong blushers are highly pigmented and long lasting, giving you an all over even dewy radiant glow. Our versatile range of shades enable you to create a variety of stunning looks. Blush in Pomegranate is a golden berry ideal for medium to dark skin tones and offers a subtle highlighting shimmer. For a beautifully highlighted radiant finish, apply Glo Face and Body Highlighter with a small powder brush carefully sweeping along the top of your cheekbones in a shade that compliments your blush.
Shade: Sleek Pomegranate is a beautiful burgundy/raspberry pink shade. It has a slight plumish sheen which looks absolutely stunning. I have a weakness for shimmery blushes and this does contain a fair amount of it. But mind you it does not look shimmery or OTT once blended on the cheeks and just gives a nice sheen. It reflects light so well and I do not need to highlight my cheeks separately with this. Pomegranate is a beautiful shade apt for evening wear or parties and one that will suit all complexions especially medium to dusky Indian skin tones really well!!
Texture: Pomegranate is a finely milled powder blush & has a very soft and satiny texture. It does not result in fall out and blends like a dream. It is intensely pigmented and you need just a wee amount to get nicely flushed cheeks. If you’re fair then make sure you pat the excess otherwise its very easy to end up with clown cheeks with this baby! This will easily show up on medium to dusky skin tones!
Staying Power: The staying power is simply FABULOUS & lasts for around 6 hrs on me without a primer underneath. Out of all the blushes I own Sleek Blushes last the longest on me. After that it starts fading leaving a gorgeous tint to your cheeks and does not get patchy.
Packaging: Sleek blushes come in a sleek :) black packaging which looks oh so classy! It comes with a huge mirror which is such a savior incase you need a touch up not that you will need to touch it up. It has the list of ingredients and other necessary details mentioned at the bottom. The packaging is s*xy, sturdy and travel friendly. However, I do wish it came with a brush because even though the brushes provided are usually useless but they’re a saviour when it comes to touch ups!
And this how Pomegranate looks on my face
