Sleek Make Up Crème to Powder Blushes Review

Sleek Make Up Crème to Powder Blushes

A few days ago when I shared a post dedicated to duping expensive blushes, the one product that piqued the most interest within the comments was the Sleek Make Up Crème to Powder Blushes. With so much intrigue, it is only fair that I follow up with a full review and of course swatches, so without further ado...

Eagled eyed readers may have noticed that the Sleek Make Up Crème to Powder Blushes packaging is rather familiar? No, your eyes are not deceiving you, the outer casing is of a style very similar to the now iconic NARS blushes, of both the cream and powder variety. Unlike the NARS blushes the case is constructed from traditional plastic, free of the rubberised coating - the Sleek version is easier to keep clean and is equally as robust. Inside, alongside a creamy blush there is a sizeable mirror which makes on the go application a breeze.

The Sleek Make Up Crème to Powder Blushes come in six, bold yet fairly easy to wear and suit all shades. I have the shades Gerbera and Pink Peony - Sleek Make Up Crème to Powder Blushes in Gerbera is a bright, yellow based orange come coral that compliments both tanned and deep complexions beautifully. It does look great on lighter skin tones too, I do however recommend approaching with a light hand and/or using on the lips. Perhaps a more user friendly and easier shade to wear is Pink Peony, this bright and slightly blue based mid toned pink adds a perky flush to the cheeks and looks great on all - light, medium and deep complexions inclusive. Much like Gerbera, this can be sported on the lips as a bold, matte splash of colour.

As far as cream blushes go Sleek Make Up Crème to Powder Blushes are up there with the best - a firm yet easy to blend texture, that can be applied with either the fingertips or a brush. I personally prefer using my fingertips, the natural heat helps to warm the product and create a more natural finish. Yes the Sleek Make Up Crème to Powder Blushes are beyond pigmented but they do blend out with next to no effort, providing a cream (or should that be crème?) to powder finish. The Sleek Make Up Crème to Powder Blushes are matte in finish but not flat nor overly drying, all the while being long wearing. On oily skin they are a dream: they don't fade, melt off nor transfer - even after 8 hours of wear. If you do have a drier complexion, I recommend teaming with a hydrating primer to prevent the blush clinging to dry areas. As an added bonus, the Sleek Make Up Crème to Powder Blushes formula is fairly forgiving to imperfections - it does not settle into enlarged pores nor fine lines, all with a soft focus and flattering natural matte finish. At £5.99 a shade you need at least one within your collection.
