Sleek Blush by 3: Lace

By | May 15, 2012

I’m one of those girls who definitely has a love, love relationship with blushers! I always seem to go on buying them, not finishing them & just generally collecting every shade of pink, coral & peach… You catch my drift?

When I heard Sleek were releasing their highly pigmented blushers in a ’3 palette’ I knew I had to get my grubby, make-up covered, paws on them! I searched high & low in various Superdrug stores but had no luck. Then my beautiful cousin Kuki, from the blog KT Cyrus & Ruby Woo, came to the rescue & sent me the Sleek Blush by 3 in Lace.

Sleek Blush by 3 in Lace RRP: £10 from HERE.

You can now get these online from Sleek’s website which I find much better to use as they rarely have products I’m looking for in store.

Being a fan on pinks & coral blushers, I was drawn to ‘Lace’. They look so pretty in pictures but even better in real life!

I’ve been wearing this whenever the sun is out… I know, I know. It’s barely been out these days but I know this will be one of my go-to-shades during the summer (if we ever get one!) Here’s some swatches…

I’ve had this for a while now & do love using it. When I say they’re SUPER-DUPER PIGMENTED, I seriously mean it! I have to apply these with a duo fibre brush else I look like a bit of a clown. However, the colours are gorgeous! This is one of those products that will last you a very long time. If you’re a blush virgin, I’d totally recommend these. They give you a nice range of colours to experiment with. Personally, I’ve been using a mixture of all 3 on my cheeks to give me a natural peachy flush :)

Have you tried any of the Sleek Blush by 3? What are your favourite Sleek products? I’m not a fan of their pout polishes/tinted lip balms, they have the most foul taste, they make me want to vom. But their lip sticks, contour kit & blushers have to be my favourites!

    Hi Kaushal. I’m in love with the Sleek eye shadow palettes. :D I have bought, the Original, and Sunset storm palette. They are great, and have a nice shimmer to the eye shadows. I was always buying the individual round pot, Bonjour eye shadow’s. I have so many of them, in different color’s. The Sleek eye shadow palettes are great, having 12 shades, in one palette. I don’t know why i spent so much money, on buying each eye shadow pot. :O

      Oh totally, the Sleek palettes work out much better than the individual Borjois ones (but I have to admit, some of the colours are really nice!). You should totally checkout this blusher palette!

      • Sal

        Yes! Kaushal, i will check out the Sleek blusher palette. :D I have 6 Bonjours blusher pot, 3 of which are shimmer one’s. However, i’m mostly just usually use just two of the Bourjois blusher’s i have. 95-Rose De Jaspe and 33-Lilas. I love the small individual blusher pots. :D It’s small to carry around, in your handbag, and comes with a brush, and mirror inside. I don’t really like using orangey blushers, i just like different shades of pink.
        Thanx for your recommendation. :D

          I really want to get a Bourjois blusher (I have too many at the moment though!) That’s true – they are very travel friendly! I love anything pink/coral/peach, hehe. No worries, hun :)
