Sleek Makeup Blush Sahara Review and Swatches
According to Sleek:
A highly pigmented blusher to brighten and define cheekbones. The silky-fine formulation provides long lasting blusher which helps to create a subtle but radiant cheek area. Apply using a small powder/blusher brush, by swirling the brush over the surface of the blusher. Tap off excess powder and apply onto the apples of the cheeks to emphasise your cheeks and your smile, or just below the cheek bone to create a sculpted look.

Though it looks a little darker in the pan, actually Sahara is a muted orange shade or a matte brownish orange shade of blush. It is by far the most unique shade in my blush collection. :yahoo:

Just like the name, it is sleek and compact. I find it lovely and handy at the same time. Very much sturdy and travel friendly provided with a compact mirror too.
My Say on the Sahara Blush:
It is sent to me by a very good friend of mine who stays in UK. When I saw many good reviews of the Sleek makeup blushes and checked the beautiful shades available online, I had to get my hands on this lovely orange shade blush. After all the hype created for orange color in blushes, lip pots, and lip balms, I wanted to have a taste of one orange blush myself and as my friend was sending me some stuff from UK, so I mailed her at the last moment to add this blush too in my package and I am more than happy to receive and use it. :happydance:
Description on the Pack along with the Ingredient List:
I think she ordered it from Amazon UK website and got it at the same price. It is very cheap there but yes the shipping cost does add up to the total and becomes a costly matter for us here. Well, I do not have to pay for the shipping though O:) 😛
I really love the matte brownish orange shade of the blush. After checking for Aruba which is quite dark and pigmented, I wanted to try a lighter coral shade and Sahara is just a perfect option for that. It is pigmented enough to show well on a paler skin tone in one swipe, but I prefer swiping it twice to get the right flush of this shade on my cheeks and same goes for Indian skin tone. It adds a sort of warmth to the face and gives you that beach type of look.
Staying power is amazingly good and stays on for practically the whole day. It is waterproof and does not give a streaky kind of a look when water is splashed on the face. Gets easily removed using any normal face wash or cleanser.
Pros of the Sahara Blush:
• Beautiful shade and unique in its own way.
• Can be used as a blush as well for contouring too.
• Super easy to blend due to its fine texture.
• Handy, sleek and lovely packaging.
• Cheap if you get it through a nice friend like I got.
• Sahara adds warmth to the face and looks great for daily as well as some special occasion. 😉
• Gives a nice flush with just 2 swipes and the color is easily buildable.
• This shade would easily suit any skin tone.
• Long staying power.
• No side effects after use.
Cons of the Sahara Blush:
• Availability is a big issue.
• Coral/orange shade tends to make one look darker than her actual skin tone.
Rest Nothing. It is a great product in a lovely shade. It would suit anyone easily and can be a nice change from the usual pinks/peach blushes that you own. :haanji:
I would rate it 4.3/5 (less for the above cons).
Definitely yes if I ever finish this one and need a similar shade of blush which I am not able to find in any other brand.
Rest my pictures below speaks for themselves. I have applied it 4 times to actually show you the shade properly, although I prefer using a light hand of blush always and that too as it was quite visible in only 2 swipes, but just for my camera to pick up the shade correctly, I had to swipe it 4 times. Still it is looking very natural sorts in daylight, have a look.
