Sleek Blushes

Blush is a product I’ve never been too concerned with, much preferring a subtle contour to rosy cheeks.

However, throughout winter I’ve really been enjoying the cliche of flushed cheeks, giving the impression you’ve been walking out in the cold on a winter’s day.

To achieve this look I’ve been loving Sleek blushes, as they’re super affordable, they have beautiful blendability and they last all day.


‘Flushed’ is a classic matte, deep pink blush, perfect for giving a flushed appearance to the cheeks.

It’s a little harder to blend than the others as it’s matte, but the pigmentation is superb.

You need the smallest amount on your brush, and I would recommend blending it a little on your hand first.

When applied to powdered skin it blends far more easily, and creates a pretty, flushed look to your makeup.sleek blusher flushed


‘Pomegranate’ is a beautiful purple toned blush, with a slight shimmer running through it.

It is slightly less wearable than the others, but if used sparingly and built up gradually it can be really beautiful.
I love this if the rest of my makeup is quite subtle, perhaps with lots of mascara and a nude lip. Perfect.

‘Rose Gold’

While browsing the aisles I found ‘Rose Gold’, a beautiful peachy gold blush.

I usually choose this colour if I’m looking for a more highlighted effect, that doesn’t add too much colour to my cheeks.

It works beautifully with my paler skin tone, but I think this would look particularly gorgeous on olive/dark skin.sleek blushes rose gold

Affordable Blushes from the Drugstore

These blushes are incredibly affordable, at £4.49 for 8g of product.

Boots and Superdrug always have a fantastic range of blushes on their Sleek counters, so I’d highly recommend checking them out.
