Review & Swatches: Sleek Blush in Pomegranate and Rose Gold

I'm a bit late with this, I know - it's been a few months since Sleek released their blushes.  I saw them in the flesh at IMATS in January; Sarah and I couldn't resist the special deal on 4 shades and bought two each.  I've been a bit down on Sleek in the past - having stuck my fingers into some of the older iDivine palettes in Superdrug and found them immensely oily, I'd been steering well clear.

These blushes, though, are definitely not oily - soft, buttery, and very pigmented, they're actually rather gorgeous.

A single dip into the pans will give you enough colour to give your cheeks a pretty glow - I've dipped my brush into Pomegranate twice in the past month and ended up looking a bit clownish, so slow and gentle is definitely the way forward with these.

Left to right:  Rose Gold, Pomegranate

From the swatches, you can see that Rose Gold is a little more natural on the skin in terms of colour, but has a really shimmery finish which is pretty full on in direct light.  Pomegranate is a fantastic colour: a clean, cool, bright raspberry, it injects a lot of colour into my face when I wear it.


Rose Gold

At just £4.30 each, these are definitely worth investigating if you like your blushers.  There are lots of colours available - 9 in total - and the high pigmentation and excellent blendability make these little pots a bit of a bargain.  If I had to have one criticism, it'd be that the packaging can be difficult to open - but for the price, I'm prepared to accept that.

If you'd like to try Sleek's blushers for yourself, you'll find them in Superdrug stores and online at Sleek's webstore.  What do you think?  Tried these?  Let us know in the comments!


  1. such gorgeous colours! i thought, from the name, that i'd like rose gold more but i'm actually leaning towards pomegranate! just have to buy them both. xo.

  2. i love the sleek blushers.....i have only ever had one but silly me dropped it on the floor and broke it after a couple of days!!

  3. I love the rose gold blush!!I think it is similar (and nicer) than the very highly rated Nars blush in Orgasm!!I bought the Nars one after hearing so much about it but defo prefer the Sleek blush which is a fraction of the price!!I am concerned that it is limited addition and will be discontinued :o :o xxx
