Review & Swatches: Sleek make up Blush By 3 in Lace & Sugar

So once again, a quick review of a Sleek make up product (see my other posts about Sleek make up here, here and here. This time it's their Blush By 3 in the shades Lace and Sugar. Blush By 3 comes with 3 blushes which range from shimmery highlighting finishes, to matte and sheen.

The packaging is sleek (see what I did there??) and sturdy and slim and compact. These are great for travelling as the shades are always in the same colour family, but so different and versatile.

Lace is a really lovely peachy trio with 2 mattes and one shimmery highlight. These shades are perfect for me in summery months. Although they're orangey peachy based, I find that I can wear these on a daily basis and with any make up look because they just give me a nice summery glow. The highlighting shade is so gorgeous and looks so lovely over the top of the other matte shades. The great thing about the Blush By 3's it that you can layer the shades really nicely, so could wear all 3 shades if you wanted to. The names for each shade are on the back, and are all different kinds of lace - very fitting! Chantily is a pure orange/peach matte shade, Guipure is a beautiful coral shimmery highlight and Crochet is more of a peachy coral shade.

Sugar is my perfect everyday trio - it's a beautiful dark neutral selection of colours which are perfect for people of colour with my complexion or darker. Again, the names are on the back and they're are named after different sugars! Demerara is a lovely reddy toned, earthy brown which adds a nice rosy look to my cheeks. Muscovado is a shimmery brown to the naked eye but it has a hint of burgundy, earthy undertones which adds a perfect pop of warm colour with a subtle highlighting shimmer to it. Turbinado is a lovely medium toned peachy brown which is so perfect for every day - it adds some warmth to my cheeks without being too overpowering or distracting.

The great thing about Sleek's blushes is that they're all SO pigmented. It's honestly incredible - you only need the tiniest little boop of your brush in the pan to get a really good amount of pigmentation onto your cheeks.

I would highly recommend these blush trio's as they're perfect for travelling and I would consider these staples in my collection. (Their singular blushes are also incredible, but these trios are so handy to have!)

Have you tried any of Sleek's blushes? Which are your favourites?
