Sleek – Blush By 3 In Pink Lemonade
This post may contain affiliate links.
I’m such a big fan of Sleek make-up, their black palettes are stylish yet affordable and most of the products are readily available at good Superdrug stores. When I saw that they had brought out this new Blush By 3 palette in Pink Lemonade I just had to have it as I was running low on good blush colours and these ones looked really natural and suitable for paler skins.
Sleek’s Blush By 3 is a palette that contains 3 different rectangular blush colours, in the case of this Pink Lemonade palette the two outer blushes are pressed powder and the centre one is a cream blush. I wasn’t too sure what to expect from the cream blush really as I generally use powder blushes, plus I have found in the past that if you mix cream and powder products in one palette you tend to end up with loose powder granules stuck in the cream products (anyone remember those huge cheap multi-palettes that Argos used to do?).
I think the swatch image above really shows off the 3 blush colours to their full advantage. The colours are, from left to right, Icing Sugar, Macaroon and Pink Mint.
Icing Sugar is a really sweet sugary pink with a substantial shimmer, and looks great when worn with a dark smoky eye. Macaroon is the cream blush and it’s a lovely rosy pink colour, the best way to apply this shade is with a flat-ended stippling brush over your make-up base, building up the colour gradually and being careful not to rub too hard and remove your base. Pink Mint is a peachy pink colour and gives a lovely natural flush when worn over the fat ‘apple’ part of the cheeks, it’s really lovely on a paler skintone. All 3 of the colours are really pigmented and you only need to apply a small amount of product to get a great effect.
I have experienced a little bit of a problem with stray powder flakes getting stuck in the middle Macaroon cream blush, which is a bit of a pain. Other than that this is a lovely blush palette and has something suitable for every occasion.
There are 8 different varieties of Blush By 3 available from Sleek, Californ.I.A is the other new one and is a tempting range of tans and oranges. Some of them have very vibrant shades that would suit darker skintones, such as Pink Sprint which has a very bright pink. I also like the look of Lace which contains 3 paler peach and tan tones – it would be perfect for pale skins for Summer.
Blush By 3 in Pink Lemonade is priced at £9.99, available from Sleek and good Superdrug stores. I think the price is really reasonable considering you get 3 blushes in one palette – that’s just £3.33 per colour!
I will soon be reviewing i-Divine Eyeshadow Palette in Storm, from Sleek. Keep an eye on Beauty Best Friend for that!
