Sleek: Your Making Me Blush

Admittedly I don't really look at Sleek products when purchasing make-up, to say the very least I have one blusher from Sleek which I have to say is amazingly pigmented and brilliant value for money. When I heard about the limited addition blush palettes Sleek has released I ran out to Superdrug's to take a good look.
'Blushes by 3' come in a choice of 5 palettes, so there's something for everyone!
(For reference the choices are : Pink Sprint, Flame, Lace, Pumpkin and Sugar. Images can be found on the Sleek website)

My eyes were immediately drawn to the 'Sugar' palette as I felt all the colour's in this palette would suit my skin tone the best. This palette consist of three shades, two of which are matte and the third being a shimmer blush. 
At £9.99 for 20g worth of the product, I think this is (as David Dickinson would say)a REAL DEAL considering an individual Sleek Blush retail's at £4.30. 

I love anything that comes in palettes or sets as there ideal for travel - and this palette will definitely be going in my make-up bag when I next go on my travels.
(From left to right: Demerara, Muscovado & Turbinado)
Demerara:This matt shaded blush is a warm brick colour. Used in the right way you can give your cheeks that 'just been out in the cold' look. 
Muscovado:I'm not a big fan of ANYTHING shimmery but when worn this blush gives you that 'glowing from within' look. The shimmer is very fine & you hardly notice it on the cheeks. This colour would also work really well as an eye shadow. 

Turbinado: A warm matt orange shade. Use with a light hand other wise you might look like an ommpa loompa.
These blushes are super pigmented so you only need the tiniest amount and they can be layered to achieve your required intensity. I sometimes wear the alone or mix the shades to create a completely new colour. 

I'm so glad that I got hold of this palette, I highly, highly recommend everyone to check out their local Superdrug's. From what I could see they were flying of the shelves so go get yours quick!

Has anyone got their 'Blush by 3' palette? If so, which one? And what do you think of it? x

  1. Sugar was the one I went for as well as even though the others were lovely too, I think I would get more use out of this one.

  4. I've seen these but I literally have ALL of their single blushes so I just couldn't justify getting this aswell as it's going to take me a lifetime to get through the singles! The one you chose looks gorgeous though
