Sleek Blush in Rose Gold Review
Sleek makeup needs no introduction, thanks to dear Rati :teddy:
I believe Sleek people should thank her a million times for posting sleek products here on IMBB, and thereby increasing their sales in India :toothygrin:
I learnt about this brand here itself and was pretty fascinated with the divine-oh so special palette, aruba blush, pout polishes,etc. So, I ordered a few things from the official sleek makeup website and I received my package within 10 days in good condition.
What the Company Claims:
A highly-pigmented blusher to brighten and define cheekbones.
Sleek offers its blush in 12 beautiful shades in both matte and shimmery range.
Rati has already reviewed their Aruba blush here. The one that I got is Rose Gold.

My Experience with Sleek Blush in Rose Gold
I love love love this blush :love:
Okay, I was on a lookout for a shimmery blush for long since all the blushes I had where subtle, matte kinds which work well for daily makeup. So, I badly wanted a blush that I could wear for my party makeup. I had almost made up my mind to get “the universally flattering NARS ORGASM Blush,” but the price of that always made me sceptical whether I should invest in a blush that I won’t be using very often 🙂 I tried the Maybelline mousse-something blush, which had shimmer, but didn’t like it much. After researching a lot on the blogosphere about close dupes for orgasm blush, I could zero on the NYX pinched blush, which most of the bloggers suggested being a close dupe, but unfortunately this remains OOS most of the time on websites.
When I was ordering my divine-oh-so-special palette, I was checking out the blushes and randomly picked this Rose Gold shade.
Coming to the product, the shade Rose Gold is a beautiful peachy-pink with golden shimmer in it. The shimmer in this blush is intense, but not really chunky or glittery. The quality of the blush is superb, blends very easily and doesn’t get chalky, powdery at all. Also, these are superbly pigmented, has amazing colour payoff so you need to start with taking just a little amount on the blush. The shade Rose Gold provides a pretty highlighting effect to the cheek bones which looks fabulous (night time/party makeups). About staying power, I can say it survives/remains intact on my cheeks for a good 3-4 hours at least.
The product comes in a matte exterior black case, which is quite like how NARS blushes are packed It comes with a built-in mirror, but no applicator, which is fine as the applicators that come with cosmetics are not really useful. Also, the quantity offered in the pan is a lot and I am sure my grand-daughter would be able to use the blush too 😀
Now coming to the BIG QUESTION, is it really a close dupe of NARS’ BIG O???? umm…mm, I really cannot comment on that, as I don’t own a NARS blush to do a comparative swatching , but from whatever I have seen and researched on the net, I can tell you that it surely belongs to the same genre as of NARS orgasm blush.
Overall, I like this product a lot and would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for shimmery blush with a decent price.
What is Good About the Sleek Blush in Rose Gold:
• This is amazingly pigmented.
• The shimmer it has, is not chunky, provides good/subtle highlighting to the cheek bones.
• Blends easily in the skin without much effort.
• Decent 3-4 hours staying power.
• Compact, easy-to-use and carry packaging.
• Fairly priced for the great quantity they offer, good value for money product.
The only sad part about them is non-availability in India, has to be ordered online. Even though the price of the product is a mere 6 $, its shipping charge is a bit too much.
Apart from this, I could not find any/much flaw in the product and I would surely like getting the other shades too
