Sleek Blush by 3 Review & Swatches- Pumpkin and Flame


A few months ago i was browsing online makeup shops when i came across these amazing blush palettes from Sleek. I have never owned a Sleek blush before so i was immediately intrigued. If you know me, you would know i love things that come in palette, you know the 2 in 1, 8 in 1, 12 in 1 kinda stuffs. It makes a whole lot of sense to me as it is quite economically and provides variety . I've used all blushes since i got them and i decided its time to do a review.  So let's get to it..





PUMPKIN

FLAME


from left to right: molten is described as a cool coral with satin finish, bon fire is described as a bright matte warm toned red, and furnace is described as a medium coral with slight sheen.


What Sleek says: 
The ultimate cheeky palette offering you three times the impact. It Includes complimentary shades, each designed with its own distinct finish, from rich shimmer to intense matte shades. 
  • Available in 6 unique color combinations designed to suit all skin tones( of which i got 2)
  • Each shade can be used alone or layered for a unique look
  • Each palette has a versatile selection of shades to take your makeup from day to night and keep it on trend from season to season
  • Set in a mirror compact and ideal for touch-ups through out the day. 
Packaging:
The Sleek blush by 3 palette comes in a black sturdy case with a full fitted mirror inside as with most sleek palettes, as well as the brand logo in front and the individual names of each color written behind.

Texture & Finishes:
These palettes have 2 different textures, at least one matte and one shimmer. The matte colors are soft and not chalky, while the shimmer colors are soft and silky and can be built up for a more intense shimmer to the skin.

Application: 
Best applied with a blush brush. For a light coverage use a fluffier brush and for a more intense coverage a compact brush will work better.

Staying Power:
The Sleek blush by 3 palette can wear for up to 4 hours depending on the layering. If a base is applied prior to blush application , the product can even last up to 6 hours before it starts to fade out.

My Overall Thoughts:
These palettes are a wonderful addition to my blush collection, igniting my blush mojo all the way. The color pay off is well over fantastic, and the pigmentation of some are so great , they can be doubled as eyeshadows. What makes it even better is the price. The sleek blush by 3 palette would cost you less than some single products.. talk about 3 for the price of 1.  You can also mix up any of the colors in each palette to get another unique color on its own.

Price: N2,600 - N4,000 depending on where you buy

Where to buy: www.beautykink.com, www.jumia.com.ng, www.mymakeupng.com or any Sleek store around you.

I would absolutely, recommend these palettes to everyone, whether as a pro makeup artist or for personal use. I need to get my hands on the other palettes in the range.

Has anyone else tried any of the 5 sleek blush by 3 palettes? Please share your thoughts.
