Perfectly Pink Flushed Cheeks

I bought this little Sleek Blush By 3 palette quite some time ago, when I went to the UK in August last summer. I had heard so many great things about the Sleek blushes before, I just had to try them, so I thought why not try one of their  palettes? I did and I ended up picking up one called Pink Lemonade.

This palette comes in a compact black little box and contains, as the name already suggests, 3 different pink blush shades, two being powder blushes and one being a cream blush. One thing that I really like about the packaging is that it comes with quite the big mirror, which always comes in handy for traveling.

Now, I really don’t know why I haven’t mentioned this one on my blog earlier as I’m absolutely loving this blush palette. Some people might say pink blushes are more suited for spring and summer but I actually quite like them during the winter time. Mainly because I usually skip out on blush during summer and go more for a bronzed look or I go for a more peachy blush.

But back to the actual palette. I really love how versatile it is as all blush shades differ immensely. First off Pink Mint is a rather sheer baby pink. It’s quite cool toned and contains some lovely gold glitter particles. It’s very pigmented but I think it’s perfect for pale skin as it is quite sheer after all. But you can always build it up of course.

Macaroon is the cream blush of the palette and definitely a cool toned pink as well. It kind of reminds me of a Barbie pink. It’s very pigmented but still very easy to apply as it blends perfectly even when you just use your fingers. I love how creamy the texture is and it has an amazing staying power. You can either use it on its own or if you want to add a bit of shimmer, you can apply either of the other two blushes on top of it, which will also prolong the wear.

The last shade is Icing Sugar and it’s more of a coral/slightly orange pink. It’s insanely pigmented and has a very metallic like shimmer as it has a frost finish. This one is my personal favorite from the palette because I love how it warms up my complexion and I love the golden shimmer it adds to my cheeks.

I’m definitely really impressed with this palette and those blushed really deserve all the praise they get. This December I’m already going back to England (I’ll be in London over New Years again. Yaaay) and I have a feeling I might try to get my hands on some more sleek blushes. Any recommendations?

As always thank you so much for reading! Also, I just noticed that I’ve hit 400 followers here on WordPress! Thanks so much to everyone that is reading my little blog, commenting or liking a post. It genuinely makes me so happy and I appreciate it so much!

Love,
