Quick Review: Sleek Sahara Blush

This is going to be a pretty quick review. I loved Sleek’s Flushed blush so much I went back and got Sahara, cos I had heard it was beautiful on women of colour, ie me 😀

I’ve already done a brief on the packaging and all so I’m not going to go into that.



It’s a matte corally – brown. Now I’m usually not a fan of coral makeup so I was a little hesitant to try it. In the pan it looks more brown but swatched, the orangey undertones are more apparent.


Swatched and blended.

It’s beautiful and I like that it isn’t so overpowering-ingly orange. However my one gripe with it is that even though it’s very pigmented, it doesn’t show up so much on me. I need to layer it on several times to get the desired colour payoff. Now this may be good or bad for you depending on your skin tone and how intense you like your blusher to look. With Flushed, two or three swipes is all I need to get the colour to pop, sadly it’s not the same with Sahara.

Nonetheless I love it because it’s suitable for a low maintenance look and you can layer for a more dramatic look.  It should look absolutely amazing on every skin tone.

This is available at the Sleek shop at the makola shopping mall for 20 cedis. Which is 5 cedis more than I bought Flushed (tehee)
