Sleek Blush By 3: Pink Lemonade

Seeing as the ever popular Nars One Night Stand palette sold out instantly I was eager to find another blush palette.I have always loved Sleek products as they are highly pigmented, cheap and have a fab lasting power, especially there eyeshadow palettes! 

Pink Lemonade is the new Blush By 3 palette by Sleek costing £9.99 and includes 3 blushes; 2 powders and 1 cream blush.

Icing Sugar
is the first, a medium pinky plum shade with a silver sparkle. Overall this blush is okay. I had to layer is quite a bit to get the pigment I wanted which is slightly disappointing but I do love the colour once it is on.

The middle shade is Macaroon, a cream blush! I had never tried a cream blush before so I was a bit unsure how to apply it HOWEVER I love it and have had so many compliments saying my skin looks like its glowing! It is a medium pink that left me with a luminous finish and was very easy to blend on the skin.  

The third and final shade is Pink Mint, another powder based blush. It is a medium-dark muted orange shade with a frosty finish. The colour is very well pigmented unlike Icing Sugar with a soft texture. However this is my least favourite shade as it felt to dark on my complexion and I didn't find it that easy to work with. 


Overall I am glad I bought Pink Lemonade Blush By 3 even though I sound negative. It's nice to try a range of blush colours without hurting the bank account and I am glad I have tried a cream blush finally. The packaging it lovely as per usual however having a cream blush in the middle of two powders was not thought through logically was it?
