Sleek Lace Blush Palette Review

Hello Readers,

Today I will be reviewing the Sleek Blush By 3 Palette in Lace. I've been after this product for quite sometime now, yet I just never seemed to pick it up. I've popped into Superdrug countless times to look at it, and have almost ordered it on Amazon an abundance of times. However, I very kindly received it as a Christmas Present from one of my boyfriends sisters, which I am extremely thankful for! I'm no stranger to Sleek, it's a brand which I am quite familiar with as I now have a few products from them. It's a brand that rarely ever seems to disappoint as most of their products are high quality, extremely pigmented, affordable and not to mention accessible!
The Blush By 3 Palette is a palette consisting of 3 blushes - obvious I know! There are 6 different palettes to choose from and those are;
-Pink Spirit
- Pumpkin
- Sugar
- Sweet Cheeks

All are priced at £9.99 which is an absolute steal for 3 blushes!
 All of the palettes are full of extremely bright and pigmented colours however Lace was the palette I wanted in particular as I felt like it had the most wearable shades to suit my skin tone. As usual it comes in Sleeks trade mark lightweight black and if you'll pardon the cringey pun, "sleek" packaging. It's simple yet classy and that's what I like about it.There's a full size mirror within the compact meaning this is the perfect product to take on the go with you as touch ups are easy!
There's a fantastic selection of shades within the palette I chose, all of which are very bright orange / coral toned and are extremely pigmented. You also get a range of finishes, the palette contains 2 matte blushes and 1 shimmery one.

The three shades within the palette are;

Crochet is the bright orange peachy shade which at first glance looks quite intimidating as it's so bright, however you just need the tiniest amount on a brush to be able to create a perfect, healthy looking flush of colour to the face. Crochet is a matte blush.
Guipure is the only shimmery blush within the palette. It's a peach toned pink with very fine golden flecks all throughout it. Shimmery blushes aren't typically what I go for, I'm normally a matte kind of girl however this blush looks lovely on the skin and gives you a glowy finish without looking like you've just whacked a load of glitter on your face. This is also a great blush to layer on top of other blushes.
Chantilly is probably the most scary looking one within the palette. It's a bright red toned pink which is a colour I don't think I've ever owned in my life. All of my blush shades are either pink or coral so this is something really new for me. Like Crochet, this is another colour which also requires only a minimal amount on a brush to be able to create a lovely flush of colour to the cheeks. If you have a darker skin tone you may be able to get away with layering this up a bit however on us extremely pale girls, we need to go easy on it! Just a small amount and the right amount of blending makes this wearable for even the palest of skin tones.
Swatches of all the colours.

As mentioned before, all the shades are incredibly pigmented, they layer well, blend rather easily and last pretty much all day on the skin!

Overall I feel like this palette probably is more suited to the Summer months however that's not going to stop me from continuing to use it now, even in gloomy January! Crochet is fast becoming one of my favourite shades to reach for. I've even had my boyfriend tell me how much he likes that shade on me so if a boy notices it, that's got to be a good thing right?!

If you're yet to try any Sleek products I highly recommend you give them ago. It's a brand that provides great high quality products for low prices and they have the most amazing colour range.

That's all for this post, I know I'm a bit late when it comes to reviewing this product as it's been out for a while now but hopefully this review comes in handy to someone!

Have you tried this product? What do you think of it?
What Sleek products would you recommend?

I hope you're all well.

    1. I don't have any of the face form palettes. I like the idea of them but I guess there's no point in me getting it if I already have the contour kit haha :) I'd recommend picking it up if you're interested in it. The colours are so incredibly pigmented! x

  2. These look so pretty - I am kind of gutted I didn't pick one up now when I saw a fab offer on in Boots. What a fool!
    Hurry up payday so I can join the bandwagon!

    Hope you are well sweet :)
