Forgive me for bringing old news to your ears but I have only just discovered the marvelous, Sleek Blush by 3 Palette… *gasps in horror* If you already know all about them and just fancied checking out the swatches just scroll right to the bottom for the pics and you can ignore my raving excitement..
Yes I know! I’m slow right!? But better late than never so they say! I am completely besotted by this palette! I am so glad I went for the shade that I did aswell as I was a little spoiled for choice on the site. I ended up going for LACE 367 to go with the Shade of Orange Lipstick (READ REVIEW HERE) that I got too.
As the brand suggests everything in the range looks and feels very Sleek with the matte, black packaging and pigment intense formulas All that you would expect from a high end product but without the hefty price tag! But back to this blusher… for those like me who are a little late on board, the blush by 3 palette is a blusher trio containing 3 tones of blushers in both matte and shimmer finishes. The range has 5 colour variations from Pinks, Reds to Oranges, each one as bright and bold as the next!
LACE 367 contains 2 Matte oranges, ( 1 x coral orange and 1 x tangerine) and 1 shimmer peach. As scary (scarily beautiful) as it looks in the palette, they are actually very wearable and flattering shades. I also found the formula to be quite smooth and not overly powdery like various other budget brands.
When using this blush I recommend applying lightly. It’s best to layer it to slowly build up the intensity you need as these are super pigmented blushers! A little really goes a long way and if you’re not careful you could end looking like a clown.
I’m very impressed with this palette to say the least, I think it might be giving my favourite Illamasqua blush a run for it’s money. I love that the three shades compliment each other so nicely and the fact that it contains both matte and shimmer finishes! This Palette in particular is great for giving a warm glow to my complexion and since Orange is set to be the it colour for Summer 2013, I can see this one fast becoming my handbag must have for the next few sunny weeks!
One thing I would say though is that the representation of the shades on the site is not very true to colour, so make sure you do a little research for some swatches before you commit to a shade. I managed to get a very good colour match in my photos and as you can see LACE on the website looks completely different!
