Sleek has recently released their Blush by 3 (I'm never sure whether it's Blush by Three or Blush by 3, but I guess they're the same), and I'm so excited to share these with you! I've always liked Sleek's powder products, especially their eyeshadows and blushes, so I was so psyched to get these, as I knew they would be awesome. And indeed they are!
If you're a blush fiend like me, the Sleek Blush by Three will be perfect for you - it's like getting three blushes in one! Each Blush by Three compact, as the name suggests, is a compact housing three different shades of blush. The blushes all have their own individual pans, too, so usage is less messy. The colour I have is Sugar, with individual blush shades Turbinado, Muscovado, and Demerara.
I've always been on the fence about Sleek Makeup's packaging, but I have to say, this time, the Blush by Three packaging somehow looks a little snazzier. Perhaps it's that the black plastic compact is more sleek and less clunky-looking; perhaps its the really pretty paper box, or perhaps it's the fact that the compact has a mirror. Whatever it is, I'm sold on the packaging for this one. It's pretty and practical.
The Sugar blush by 3 shades cover a good range of colour bases and finishes. There's Turbinado, a deep neutral rose shade; Muscovado, a neutral brown shade with gold shimmer; and Demerara, a pumpkin orange shade. So that covers your bases of pink, peach, and neutral-based blushes, and both matte and shimmer.
I know the names sound scary, and the colours do look really deep and unwearable in the pan, but I've really enjoyed wearing these, despite being a somewhat pasty NC20. With a light hand, these are very wearable and versatile. I've swatched all three blushes below, both with a light and a heavy hand, so you can see what they look like on.
As you can see, the blushes are very richly pigmented. They also have a very smooth texture, and apply nicely too. Turbinado and Muscovado are my favourites of the bunch. Although Turbinado looks like a dark brick red, and Muscovado just looks like a unflattering brown shade in the pan, on the skin these are such gorgeous, versatile neutrals that it's impossible to not love them. Demerara is a tad too orange for me, but with a light hand, it's a great peach shade.
I haven't had the chance to take any photos of my FOTDs (Face of the Days) with my Sleek Blush by 3 yet, but you can bet I'm working on this! I'm absolutely in love with the Sleek Blush by 3. It's perfect for those who want a variety of shades all in one compact, and for those who travel with makeup, and for those who - like me - just have a thing for blush. There's only one drawback - these are limited edition, so get them while you can!
