Blush is one of those products which I probably play around with most. Depending on the weather, and what kind of look I’m after, I tend to rotate through a few favourites, and I have to say – a new blush can really change your look!
For easy everyday looks, a bright pink blush is my usual go-to. I love the brightening qualities it has, but if I’m wanting a more dressed up look, I usually plump for a rose or coral shade.
Obviously the clever people at Sleek Makeup feel the same, as they have just released a line of Blush by 3 palettes which include a range of three different blushes which are perfect for creating a variety of stunning natural looks. There is a mix of colours and textures, all of which are stunning, and, if you’re looking for a suitcase friendly blush, this has got to be a serious contender!
Pink Lemonade is a trio perfect for those wanting a pretty, natural finished looked. The mix of two pinks as well as a bronze based shade feel perfect for summer, as well as being pretty much the colours I rotate through anyway! The first thing I noticed though, was the shade on the far left looked awfully like a dupe for Nars’ Orgasm. It’s the same mix of pretty pinky-peach with golden shimmer. Considering how closely the Sleek packaging resembles Nars, I don’t think the similarity is a coincidence. Happily though the swatch is pretty comparable – on the skin Sleek’s peachy pink is pleasingly colour saturated with a good colour payoff. The golden shimmer is subtle enough just to give skin a glow and it lasts all day.
The centre shade is a sunny rose pink cream blush which feels like it was made for wearing every day. When applied with fingertips, it just melts into skin, leaving cheeks looking believably peachy. I love a quick swipe of this on days where I want a no-makeup look as it really brightens my complexion without looking too done. The last shade is the tawny, almost bronzer shade on the right hand side of the palette. It’s a really beautiful shade if you’re looking to add a little warmth to your skin. I can’t wait to use this one more when I’m tan (I’m currently Casper-white at the moment) as I think it will look super pretty!
