Review: Sleek Blush by 3- Pink Lemonade

I couldn't resist a Cloud 10 Beauty order a few weeks ago, and the Sleek Blush by 3 in Pink Lemonade just jumped out at me. I absolutely love blusher and can never resist them but what I liked about this was the packaging and having 3 blushes in a palette! I have used Sleek products before and I have always been impressed by their pigment and pricing. So how did this trio hold up? Read on to find out...

Sleek Blush by 3- Pink Lemonade

The Product:
The palette consists of three complimentary pink shades all of different texture. Two are powders and one cream.

Pink Mint-I would say this is your classic pink and has glitter particles for shimmer. The consistency is a little chalky and the glitter falls around the palette to add annoyance. The pigment is also lacking with this powder blusher.
Macaroon-A medium pink shade, that leaves you with a gorgeous glow. This is the cream blush in the palette and I really like how buttery this is, and how pigmented this is (a little really does go a long way and will last all day too). I found using my Real Techniques stippling brush worked best with this one and it blended  really well.
Icing Sugar-This is a beautiful golden pink shade with a frosted finish. Of the two powder blushes this is my favourite and has a much stronger pigment that lasts all day.

The Packaging:
The trio come in a sleek palette that clasps shut. The palette feels really sturdy and there is no way this palette is going to open up in my bag. There is a lovely sized mirror for your on the go application which I do use. I do have one issue with the packaging and that is with the glitter from Pink Mint falling into Macaroon the cream blusher. When applied this hasn't been an issue and the glitter that has fallen into Macaroon doesn't seem to apply then to my face.

Overall Verdict:
I really like this palette and it works for me and what I need from it. I use the cream blush first then add some dimension with Icing Sugar and use Pink Mint as a highlight and I really like the look achieved by doing this as the colours do compliment one another.
For €12.99 it is a welcome addition to my makeup bag and would like to try more of Sleek's by 3 palettes. This might not be for everyone and it does have a few downsides which are the chalky consistency and fallout of Pink Mint and not having much staying power. The glitter particles falling into the cream blush is also a downside but something I am able to overlook for now.

Price:
€12.99

    1. The 3 shades really compliment one another, you would need to top up pink mint throughout the day though, but otherwise I love it! x
