My blush addiction is becoming really quite uncontrollable and these beautiful Sleek Blush by 3 Palettes are doing nothing to help. I’m sure a lot of you will already be very familiar with the Sleek palettes – which by the way are an absolute steal at just £9.99 a piece! – but these two latest releases are my first real encounter with this popular drugstore brand.
Well after trying and testing these brand new bad boys out, it’s clear this is just the start of what I’m sure will be a beautiful relationship.
First up, we have Californ.i.a, a peach and coral-toned palette inspired by the sun, sea and sand of beachy Californian life. All three blushes – Newport Beach, The Surf and OC – are cream formula and apply so smoothly, with a brilliant colour payoff to boot. Easily blendable but super pigmented, the product hangs around on cheeks for the best part of a day.
Next up in Pink Lemonade, a rosy pink palette with just a hint of shimmer that gives cheeks an amazingly radiant glow. This palette comes complete with two powder blushes – Icing Sugar and Pink Mint – and a cream blush – sandwiched in between. The cream blush is the same lovely formula as the previous palette, while the powder blushes offer the same amazing pigmentation – seriously, be light-handed with that brush! – and staying power.
Needless to say I’m sorted for blush for a wee while now – I think.
