I’ve been admiring the Sleek Blush By 3 palettes for a long time but I never got around to investing in one until now. Pink Lemonade was released on 15th January and contains three gorgeous decadent pinks which are meant to be themed around English tea parties and ladies who lunch. The colours in this palette are right up my street so I couldn’t resist buying it. The two outer shades are shimmer powder blushes and the middle shade is a cream blush.
The first shade, Icing Sugar, is a very cool pale pink with some shimmer. It is quite sheer and gives your cheeks a nice subtle wash of pink. This is probably the one I’d use least as my skin is quite warm and yellow toned and this shade of pink would make me look quite washed out.
The second shade, Macroon, is a cream blush and a bold medium pink shade. This can be built up for a stronger blushed cheek or it can be blended out to a more sheer flushed look. It is such a fabulous shade and it was also works well as a base for a powder blush meaning you’d get more staying power.
The third and final shade, Pink Mint, is a coral rose shade with lots of golden shimmer throughout. This is probably my favourite of the three blushers as it suits my warmer skin and it is beautiful and vibrant.
These blushers are highly pigmented and you only need a small amount to get your desired look. They are very bold at first but they are easily blended. Each of the powder blushers are finely milled and soft. The cream blusher is just super creamy and glides on to the skin effortlessly. They all took to my skin like a dream and felt so lightweight and comfortable. I think the Blush By 3 offerings from Sleek are amazing value for money. The packaging is super chic, it is thin and it can be popped in your bag easily for when you are on the go. It also houses a little mirror which is ideal for all us ladies. Every female should carry around a mirror, right? All of that for £9.99 – what a bargain?! Technically, you are paying £3.33 per blusher and that is hard to beat at such great quality. The range of colours you can get in Sleek’s Blush By 3 range are incredible too – there is literally something for everyone. I am an avid fan of Sleek and I have been for a long time from their iDivine eyeshadow palettes to their Face Form kits and now these. Amazing! I absolutely love blusher and it is one of my favourite pieces of make up to wear, I couldn’t and wouldn’t go a day without it. Blusher can change your entire look from dull and drab to bright and beautiful. Who doesn’t love a lovely pop of colour?
What do you think of Sleek’s Blush By 3 palettes? Do you currently own any? Is blusher an integral part of your everyday make up routine?
