Sleek MakeUP Blush by 3


I received my Sleek "Oh So Special" palette the other day, I also got the Blush by 3 palette, and I've really wanted to review it. I was really excited to get this, as the website makes it look extremely glamorous and the fact that it was more expensive than the eye palette seemed to catch my eye!

The colour I chose was "Lace" which comes with these three colours. The one furthest to the left is more of a peach colour, whilst the middle colour is more shimmery, and the far right is a lovely bright pinky peach.

The product is amazingly pigmented, and the first time I used it I actually used far too much! A little goes a long way (my favourite saying) so I'm really pleased with it! The only problem that causes is that if you want a very subtle look, you have to be very careful not to get too much on your brush! But that's not a problem for me if you blend it enough it looks beautiful either way.


I'm wearing the far left colour hear, the matte peach colour. On camera, the other two look fairly similar so there was no point in showing all of them, just one picture to show you how strong the colour is with just a little used.

I'm very tempted to go back and by more, I'm really interested in getting "Flame" and "Sugar" as they both look gorgeous! I'm just worried they may be a little bit too strong for me!

Overall, I'm extremely happy with this set of blushes. Very pigmented, beautiful colours, no negative reports from me whatsoever.

Have you tried Sleek Blush by 3 yet? Or do you have another fail safe blush?

  2. Very pretty. I've been thinking of doing a sleek order and this is one of the things I really liked. Very handy to see a review before I put an order in.

  3. Didn't realise these were now for sale on the Sleek website! Seriously contemplating buying one or two now :) Lace I think is the prettiest. I only have one Sleek blush in Rose Gold and it's almost too pigmented for me so I find it a bit tricky to apply. The matte peach looks really pretty :)

    1. The Lace is the prettiest in my opinion! Their blushes are so pigmented, but at least it's better than blush that just makes no effect at all! :)

  12. Some of those colours look quite scary! Haha, I like lace the best, I think. Did you order it from the Sleek website?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Haha yes, Lace was the tamest, I think! I ordered directly from their website, they actually shipped pretty quickly, and with shipping and everything it was cheaper than any Australian website I could find, plus they threw in a sample lipgloss!

    2. Fair enough! I'm tempted but wonder how close it would be to rose gold, which I already own! I already have too many blushes though! I'm a sucker for limited editions!

      Delete
    3. Yeah I checked out the rose gold and it might be a bit too similar. I also love limited editions... buying them and then owning them just feels special haha :)

  13. This is definitely a product I'm wanting to try. I just don't think it's available for shipping to Canada yet... :(

  17. Hi, i LOVE Sleek make-up, i have been using it for years as they produce the best make-up for dark skinned people (in my opinion). i have recently moved to Auckland and ordered loads of Sleek products. How long did it take for you to receive your products??

    That blush look really cute on you too :)

    Thanks

    1. Oh that's great, I'm glad you love their products!
      It didn't take too long for me to receive the goods, maybe about 2 weeks? (Less in some cases, a little longer in others if I ordered on a weekend or if there was a public holiday in the way!)
      And thank you :)
