Name: Blush in Rose Gold
From Sleek’s website:
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.
What I liked:
– beautiful shimmery shade that looks great on most skintones
– very pigmented
– texture is soft to the touch
– powder is finely milled
– the packaging
– the price
What I didn’t like:
– because it is so pigmented, application can be tricky especially if you have pale skin
Peachy pink blushes are one of my weaknesses so when Sleek released a new shade of Blush called Rose Gold a while ago, I just couldn’t resist. I had to get it! Rose Gold is a stunning warm peachy pink with golden shimmers. From the reviews I’ve read online, this seems to be a close dupe for Nars Orgasm but without the glitter, but since I don’t own that, I can’t compare.
Rose Gold is a very, very pigmented blush. Very flattering on darker skintones, fair-skinned girls like me need to be very careful with application if they don’t want to look like a clown! That’s what happened the first time I used it even though I was careful to pick up only a very small amount of product lol! A little definitely goes a very looooong way with this blush!
I think the best way to use this blush is to apply it with either a big fluffy blush like ELF Studio Complexion Brush or a duo fibre brush. Both types of brush don’t pick up too much product, providing a natural and glowing effect that would be flattering for most skintones. And it lasts all day too!
In addition, the texture is quite soft to the touch and the powder finely milled and easy to blend (but again, make sure you use a light hand!). I have to admit I wasn’t expecting it as drugstore blushes are often chalky and powdery, but not this. It’s actually creamy and really great quality.
I also like the packaging. The black compact looks sleek and it comes with a mirror, which is a nice addition. Instead, it doesn’t include a brush but I don’t mind that as it would have been useless (brushes that come with makeup products are very rarely decent after all).

Sleek Blush in Rose Gold is one of the best drugstore blushes I’ve ever come across. Finely milled, the powder is creamy to the touch and applies smoothly. In addition, it is also insanely pigmented, so use a light hand with application if you don’t wanna look like a clown! But if applied carefully, it provides a natural and glowy flush to the cheeks that’s flattering on most skintones. Oh, and it lasts all day too!
