Review, Swatch and FOTD - Sleek Blush in Pomegranate

I have been loving this gorgeous & highly pigmented blush ever since I received it from an international swap with a lovely blog friend.
(That was more than six months ago, so I guess this is a long overdue post. ;) )

Sleek Blush Pomegranate

Sleek Blush
Comes in a "sleek" and simple black matte case.

Pomegranate is a vivid plum / berry color with fine champagne gold shimmer. 

The blush has silky texture with almost no graininess (Is it a word? lol) and it is very long lasting.
I was very impressed with the quality because the price of this blush is in the drugstore range ($5.99 USD) but it looks and wears like a high end product!

This particular color is very unique and beautiful but it looks a little scary from the pan and it does look bit too much on me when applied with my regular blush brush.
However, I can solve this problem and make it work for me by using a skunk brush (e.l.f. stippling brush from the studio line) instead.

This brush is very nice for pigmented and dark blushes like this although it might be a little too soft and limpy for other purposes. ;)
On me, it creates very pretty natural pink flush without looking gaudy or clownish. 
I think this color is great for any season but especially lovely for winter!

Pomegranate has made my top 5 blushes and I am reaching for it more and more as the cooler weather approaches. 
This blush made a great impression on me about Sleek Cosmetics and I definitely want to try more in the future.

Here are a couple of FOTDs of me wearing Sleek Pomegranate blush. :)

I am wearing the Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain in Smitten.
This color is a great complement to the Sleek Pomegranate.

I look sleepy here but you can see the makeup colors a bit better. ;p

Have you tried Sleek blushes?
Do you have any color recommendation for me? :)

Thanks for reading!
