Sleek MakeUP Blush Swatches & Review

Sleek MakeUp Blushers Collection

I honestly think no other drugstore brand rivals Sleek Blushers! Why? Because Sleek blushes are some of the most highly pigmented smooth blushes I've come across to date! That and the fact they cost less than a fiver makes them an absolute winner for me. So I decided to do this post because I had to share my absolute favourites on here... I've broken them down into colour group, swatched and reviewed them all individually so you can get the low down on my favourite blushes.

Berry Toned Blushers

Flushed is a berry plum blush. It has a smooth texture and is very nicely pigmented. This is one of my go-to Autumn/Winter blushes as it's a slight vampy/currant shade. As the name suggest this one is great for a natural "flushed" look especially on darker skin tones.

Pomegranate is a unique berry toned blush with a pink iridescent to it. It has great pigmentation, it  also applies and wears well. My only regret is I don't wear this blush enough!

Fenberry is matte muted plum toned blush. Its highly pigmented and long lasting on the cheeks. It's a great blush for a natural look flush. It was a limited edition from there Christmas Collection so it's rather tricky to find. Possible Dupes: MAC Fever is slightly darker, Sleek Flushed is brighter.

Brown Blushers

Sunrise is red bronze blush with golden shimmer. This blush remind me of MAC Ambering Rose a lot.  It's a great summertime blush for that golden beach tan look. Nicely pigmented and soft texture. Has nice longevity of wear.

Honour (LE) is a deep bronze brown blush with golden shimmer. It's highly pigmented and applies really smoothly. The texture of the blush is soft and buttery plus they last really long on the skin.  It was limited edition from the London 2012 but you can still find it beauty supply stores and online (eBay). Possible dupes; MAC Sweet as Cocoa is lighter with a more satin sheen and La Femme Plum Frost is more warm and more frosty.

Antique is frosty grey toned brown blush with silver glitters. It's my least favourite in my collection as it tends to look ashy on me. The texture is quite smooth and as wear on through the day it tends to leave just glitter on the face.

Peach and Orange Blushers

Coral is coral-brown blush with a matte finish. This is a great blush for a warm natural look. This blush will look great on almost every skin tone and it one of my most reached for blush. It nicely pigmented and has a great soft texture.

Sahara is orange-brown blush with a matte finish. I first purchased this blush when I was in secondary school, I think this might of been one of my first blushes ever. From then until now I still feel the same about this blush - I love it! Sahara is a great blush to wear for a very natural look, it almost goes with any eye look or any lipstick. This is a must have if you have tan/medium-dark skin.

Pan Tao (LE) is a gorgeous creamy peach blush with a matte finish. This is a favourite of mine for the Spring. It's has great pigmentation and beautiful texture. This was a limited edition from Avoir La Peche collection. Possible Dupes; Sleek Chantille from the Lace Blush by 3, Sleek Life's A Peach and Illamasqua Lover is lighter.

Aruba is a matte bright tangerine orange blush. It's quite scary in the pan but it looks really quite natural on darker skin tones. This was a limited edition from the Caribbean collection which I search high and low to find. Possible dupes; Sleek Lantern from the Pumpkin Blush by 3 is almost identical and La Femme Orange is a darker more red-orange blush.

Pink Blushers

Santorini (LE) is a neon fuchsia blush. It's crazy bright and pigmented. This one is definitely not  for the faint of heart. Possible Dupes: Pink Ice from the Pink Sprint Blush By 3 and La Femme Fuchsia slightly lighter and more neon.

Flamingo is bright medium tone pink. It's the ultimate barbie pink blush. It's very smooth, buttery and highly pigmented.

Pixie Pink is a light pink with a matte finish. Women of colour don't be scared of this blush! Although this blush is very light, applied lightly on the cheek this blush is gorgeous and girly.

Mirrored Pink (LE) is light pink with silver shimmer. It has a lovely satin shimmer which highlights the cheek bones. Once again it's very smooth, buttery and highly pigmented. Possible Dupes; La Femme Coral Spice is brighter and more shimmery and Sleek Pink Mint from the Pink Lemonade Blush by 3 is slightly chunkier in texture.

Rose Gold is a peachy pink with gold shimmer. It's a great dupe for Nars Orgasm blush and nearly quarter of the price. This blush looks great on nearly everybody!
